Did anyone else sense some tension between Leah Messer and her husband, Jeremy Calvert, during this week's episode of Teen Mom 2 Season 5? These two went on a hot date toward the end of the episode, and the conversation took a turn for the awkward when the subject of Jeremy's work came up.
In case you aren't in the know, this backwoods boy works as a pipeline engineer, a job that takes him away from home for months at a time and also happens to earn him up to $5K per week. Do you know how many Snuggies we could buy for that amount of money? So many.
Anyway, as much as Leah supports her man, she isn't exactly thrilled when he ditches his family to bring home the bacon, and she made her feelings more than clear this week. Not only did Leah tell Jeremy to "shut up" repeatedly, she implied that he prioritized making money over family time!
Leah has since taken it to Twitter to clarify her feelings, though she definitely isn't apologizing for taking Jeremy to task.
"@Calvert505 [Jeremy Calvert] working away from his family is a touchy subject for me because it's very hard not having the one you love beside you for several weeks or months," she explained.
We can't imagine how hard it must be for Leah to raise her three daughters alone while Jeremy is away for work, but luckily she lives close to her parents, who help out as much as they can. As far as we know, Jeremy is currently working close to home, so hopefully he and Leah are getting along better than ever!
