Leah Messer complained about filming for Teen Mom 2
“Let me just give you a little bit of insight on filming,” Leah told her camera as she sat inside her car, “So, first it’s hurry up and then wait. We’re wanting to film at the beach today, but we have to have a police escort, a lifeguard to even get in the water, uh, security, multiple cameras, multiple film, like production, all that kind of fun stuff — but who wants to film with us again?”
In a caption on her video, Leah wrote, “Btw- Our life guard called off so we can’t get in the water until we wrap [filming]”
Leah again mocked being asked to film with her for Teen Mom 2 and in a high-pitched voice, sarcastically said, “Come on down! Let’s have a big filming party!”
Next, Leah showed her daughters walking towards the beach and told the camera, “Finally get to go to the beach!”

Leah has come under fire for her scenes on Teen Mom 2 this season
Leah has come under fire lately for her segments on the show. Teen Mom 2 fans are growing tired of her “cringeworthy convos” with her daughters, Ali, Aleeah and Addie.
With ratings for Teen Mom 2 dropping drastically and upper level MTV producers reportedly being cut from the show, is Leah partly to blame for the decreased viewership? Fan page Teen Mom Tea recently took a poll and 79% of viewers agreed that Leah’s parts on the show are “SO BORING.”
Although Leah has been working on staying in recovery from pain medication addiction, attaining a real estate license, and raising her girls, it looks like Teen Mom 2 fans prefer more drama on-screen.
Teen Mom 2 airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
