Well now, here’s a cheating scandal we certainly never saw coming – and we’ve seen plenty of scandals or rumored scandals coming.
Especially from the MTV reality star universe. But not this. Not this.
As you may know, Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 are different from most other reality series in the way the producers are directly integrated.
The shows’ behind-the-scenes crew members not only influence what we see, but frequently appear on camera and interact with the cast.
At this point, some of the producers are full-blown series regulars, and thus, it’s not uncommon for them to become wrapped up in the drama.
It’s a strange technique, but it works – provided, of course, that none of the producers cross the line in their interactions with the cast.
Which brings us to the craziest rumor we’ve heard in awhile.
On Twitter yesterday, Leah Messer’s ex Jeremy Calvert threatened to quit Teen Mom 2, which is not new … but the back story is this time.
Jeremy, who is now engaged to Brooke Wehr, even went so far as to poll fans as to whether or not he should stay with the show.
The cause of his consternation?
The usual complaints about the show’s editing, coupled with recent drama surrounding his rumored breakup with Brooke Wehr.
Interestingly, however, those two issues may be interconnected, as Wehr has publicly accused Jeremy of cheating on her.
With producer Mandi Venturino.
Yesterday, Wehr called him out for allegedly straying with a Teen Mom 2 producer with (how else?) a series of memes:
“Yes my love, I love you. I swear I won’t cheat on you tonight,” read the text on the first passive-aggressive shot at Jeremy.
What followed was not passive, just plain aggressive.
She captioned the photo, “Sounds about right.”
“Too bad he f–ked the producer @mandi06.”
And Brooke didn’t stop there. Goodness no.
She continued to level accusations via meme, with her next one featuring Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man in the World.
See his scathing assessment of Calvert:
“I don’t always fall in love,” the caption read.
“But when I do … it’s with a cheating sociopath that sucks up my life and wastes my time because I’m obviously retarded.”
Again, she used the meme as a segue to a direct indictment of Calvert, leaving no doubts as to whom she was referring.
In a caption, she added:
“You just talk to b-tches for hours on end everyday until 2am. Haha I don’t know who the hell you think you’re fooling, but you’re a terrible liar.”
Well. Okay then.
Brooke captioned another pic, referencing his ex-wife:
“Guess Leah was right. I should have listened.”
Yes, the Ohio single mom who recently got engaged to Calvert went there with the savage “your ex was right about you” talk.
For her part, Venturino responded with a denial via a tweet evoking the phrase popularized by Kellyanne Conway, reading:
“Have a lovely day everyone.”
In a statement to Radar Online, the Teen Mom 2 staff member added, “I have no comment. I’m not allowed to comment.”
The always-eloquent Calvert reacted to the developing situation on Instagram, posting a meme of his own with the text:
“Single AF? Dick still big tho.”
And Classy AF, for damn sure.
As always, you can discuss in the comments below, and watch Teen Mom 2 online to relive Jeremy and Leah in happier times.
Or remind yourself that Calvert has always been kind of a d-bag, if you take the vantage point of his growing number of critics.
