The ladies of Teen Mom 2 recently hit up New York City for a mini reunion (read: press day), and you know what that means: bonding sessions all over the place. Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Messer definitely had some catching up to do, and the trip was a great opportunity for these girls to learn from one another.
Not only did Jenelle learn that there's more to life than Alfredo sauce (it's called pizza and hot dogs, girl), Kailyn was majorly inspired by Leah's relationship with her ex-husband, Corey Simms. This once-happy couple had a notoriously dramatic breakup and divorce, but they still get along amazingly well for the sake of their twin daughters. Even better? Leah's new husband, Jeremy Calvert, also gets along with Corey, while Corey's new wife, Miranda Bridget, gets along with Leah! Basically, they're one big happy family, and Kailyn is impressed.
"This weekend Leah opened my eyes to co-parenting w/ involvement of new significant others," Kailyn tweeted. "I hope to be where they are!"
Of course, Leah and Corey haven't really had a choice when it comes to co-parenting. These two are forced to spend lots of time together thanks to the sad fact that their daughter, Aliannah, has a mysterious developmental disorder. No one wants to argue in a hospital waiting room, so Leah and Corey have learned to have mutual respect for one another.
But does Leah think Kailyn and her baby daddy, Jo Rivera, can have a similar relationship? You bet! "You will be! I have faith in you," Leah responded. "I was so happy I got to see you and your beautiful family! I love you girl' see u soon !! Xoxo."
It's great that these ladies are so supportive of each other! And by the way, Javi and Jeremy are totally BFFs for life, so hopefully Javi will learn a few things about co parenting from Leah's main man!
