Last night’s episode was an emotional one for all the moms of ‘Teen Mom 2,’ especially for Leah Messer who found out that Corey’s wife Miranda wasn’t helping Ali carry her backpack after school. Leah’s cousin recorded Ali complaining that when her back pack is too heavy Miranda wont carry it for her because she’s holding her newborn daughter Remi… who apparently now gets all the attention. Leah took Ali’s complaints very seriously and immediately got emotional while talking with her sister about it. (Because little girls aren’t ever being dramatic or anything…)
Corey quickly took to Twitter to explain that this was a situation blown way out of proportion.
“Watching tonight’s episode and shaking my head. People talk big. A simple co parenting convo turns into much more. A simple everyday task Gets blown way out of proportion. And my place is still the worse place for them to be. Tune in for much more TM2 action 😂“
Miranda spoke with MTV stating, “I always try to carry Ali’s backpack for her… I would never try to do any harm to the children or create any kind of task that I know Ali cannot do. I’m not saying how she felt was wrong — her feelings are important. I just hope that we can move on, and I hope that the girls feel comfortable no matter where they are at one time.”
Corey also added, “Miranda has been around the girls since they were two years old,” the father of three stated. “Miranda is aware of what Ali is capable of and what she’s not capable of doing. If Miranda would have felt that the backpack was too heavy, she would not have made her carry the backpack.”
