‘Teen Mom’ News Pile: Leah Messer Finally Addresses Pregnancy Rumors Surrounding Her; Farrah Abraham Says She’s Giving Up Alcohol & More

Leah, talking about her female parts…

From talking babies to taking a “Just Say Allergy” stance on alcohol, the stars of the Teen Mom franchise (both past and present) have been keeping themselves busy lately! In an effort to keep you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 news, The Ashley brings you the Teen Mom News Pile.

Here are some of the major (and minor but interesting) ‘Teen Mom’-related things that have happened over the last week or so…

Leah Messer addresses those pesky pregnancy rumors.

“This here ain’t no baby! All that’s in here is canned raviolis and Lunchables, y’all!”

Leah Messer has been plagued by pregnancy rumors over the past few months, and she’s finally addressed them.

As ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans know, Leah basically has a professional photographer following her around to do constant photoshoots of her and her boo, Jaylan Mobley. (Because…who doesn’t do a pro photoshoot once a week?) In some of the more-recent ones, fans have sworn that they’ve seen Leah with a slight baby bump, causing pregnancy rumors to run rampant.

“Y’all cut that out, ya hear? Or I’ll tan yer hide with a switch if you keep up them rumors!”

However, the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star says she’s not with a ding-dang child, she’s just gotten a little “thicker.” 

In an extremely random video (produced by and starring Jaylan, natch) that was posted to Instagram in honor of Leah’s recent 30th birthday, Leah denied being pregnant, calling all the recent stories about her being pregnant “clickbait nonsense.” 

Instead, she attributed the alleged “baby bump” to weight gain from being comfortable in her relationship with Jaylan, calling it “happy weight.”

“I’m not 30 and pregnant,” Leah said, obviously playing off of her 16 and Pregnant past.

“I ain’t mad at that. I appreciate the thickness,” Jaylan added. 

Leah has stated that she finds all of the pregnancy rumors “rude.” After being accused of being pregnant one time last year, she took to Instagram to set her fans straight.

“I want to let them know, I was bloated last week. That was not okay!” she wrote. 

Kail Lowry says she can’t talk about being abused because she was once an abuser herself.


Kail was recently a guest on ‘Bachelor’ star Nick Viall’s Viall Files podcast, where she discussed losing her recent lawsuit against Briana DeJesus. She also spoke about domestic violence and abusive partners, and revealed that she feels unable to discuss the domestic violence she’s experienced in the past, due to her own abusive history.

During the podcast interview, Kail stated that she feels the public doesn’t want to hear about her abusive relationship. We can assume she is talking about her relationship with her third baby daddy, Chris Lopez, as Kail has stated multiple times that Chris allegedly physically abused her. (Back in July 2020, Kail accused Chris during his Instagram Live of choking her. During her February 2022 deposition for the defamation lawsuit, Kail told the attorneys that “Chris almost killed me in October of 2019.”)

Anyway, during her interview with Nick, Kail said the reason no one wants to hear her talk about being abused is that she got physical with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, during a 2012 episode of ‘Teen Mom 2.’ 

The Javi-shoving incident, which aired during a Season 4 episode…

“So I was married and I pushed my ex-husband. Then I got into another relationship afterwards and he was abusive towards me,” Kail said. “I have felt up until this point that I can’t talk about that because I pushed my ex-husband in 2012. It’s hard because, yeah, I did do that, but I’ve owned it, I’ve talked about it, I’ve apologized for it. 

“So I have been, I guess you could call that abusive, and now I can’t talk about the abuse in my most-recent relationship because of that,” Kail said.

As The Ashley previously reported, Kail also talked about pushing Javi during the recent deposition, telling the lawyers, “I definitely regret my reaction to what I did to my ex-husband.

“I absolutely am remorseful. I have apologized both publicly and privately, so I think I’m am at a place where I can face the music and talk about it and I am okay…I absolutely should not have pushed him.”

Farrah Abraham says that she’s done drinking alcohol, due to her low brain activity…or something.

Honestly, the jokes just kind of write themselves here…

Farrah’s days of drunkenly laying out on a sidewalk outside of a nightclub may be behind her.

The former ‘Teen Mom OG’ star was recently featured in a TikTok video posted by Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen.

“With you, alcohol is particularly toxic, and it lowers your activity in the cerebellum [part of the brain], and your [activity] is already low,” Amen Clinics Psychiatrist Dr. Kandace Licciardi tells Farrah in the video.

“You don’t want to do anything that’s more harmful to your brain,” the psychiatrist adds.

Honestly, just have Michael give her some frozen peas (that she can throw back at him) and put that brain on ice. It’s been through enough!

“I have always kind of said that I think I’m just allergic to alcohol, and people really weren’t taking me serious,” Farrah said. “But with my treatment center that I just went through, I was very, very adamant that is not something I want in my system or in my space. I just call it like an allergy and people can respect that or not.” 

Farrah says her decision to give up alcohol just makes sense…which is more than we can say about her “Farrah Speak”-filled response.

“Having the facts presented in front of us, I truly shouldn’t have alcohol in my system,” the Backdoor Teen Mom says. “It’s not going to help me get to my goals of where I want my energy to go to, in my mind, so I can have better functioning for my life.”

As ‘Teen Mom’ fans know, Farrah has been arrested three times in her life, with alcohol playing some part in all three. Her two most-recent arrests came after she had been drinking at Los Angeles bars.

During her first arrest back in March 2013, The Big F was picked up for DUI after celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Nebraska. After the arrest, Farrah refused to take responsibility for her actions, and even appeared on an episode of The Dr. Phil Show to argue with The Doc about how, although she was drinking and driving, she wasn’t drinking and driving.

“I was drunk…I was not driving, I was actually parked,” Farrah told a confused Dr. Phil. “I drove around the corner and parked and I was still in my car. Two minutes later, a cop came over. [I was driving] around the corner, yeah, but I wasn’t driving! So, no, I was not driving drunk! I guess if I was driving, and still driving, and then a cop pulled me over, that’s really driving drunk…When I was approached by a police officer, I was not driving. The car was shut off, my hands were off the steering wheel, I had been parked. There was no driving. That’s that!”

In a longer clip of the interview with Dr. Licciardi, Farrah talks about the period of time before she went to the treatment center earlier this year. She stated that, despite all the trauma she’s experienced, she now has hope.

“And if I’m not, I blame Debz OG…and Michael…and Maci!”

“I am fixable,” Farrah said, before adding that she “really wanted to make sure that my brain’s OK.” Farrah stated that she fears that she’ll revert back to the old Farrah.

The doc then goes over Farrah’s brain scans, telling her that she has low brain activity in her cerebellum.

Chelsea Houska sells her former South Dakota farmhouse. 

“We’re down one fabulous farmhouse!”

Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Chelsea Houska has sold the South Dakota home she and her family lived in prior to building their current straight-out-of-Pinterest farmhouse, also located in South Dakota. 

Cole, Chelsea and their ever-expanding litter of buffalo-plaid-loving kids moved out of their former home in December 2020. According to The Sun, Chelsea and her husband, Cole DeBoer, listed the home for $600,000, though it sold in July for $45,000 less than their asking price. 

Not pictured: the room full of dartboards of Adam’s face…probably…

Despite accepting a lower offer, Chelsea and Cole still made a profit on the sell, as they purchased the six-bedroom two-bathroom home in June 2018 for $435,000. 

The house was featured on ‘Teen Mom 2’ and as viewers fans may recall, it was burgled in 2018 while the family was away on vacation in Colorado. 

Were the burglars happy once they realized 90 percent of the stuff in your house was leopard print, distressed or plaid?

As The Ashley previously reported, Chelsea and Cole are currently filming their own show, Farmhouse Fabulous, for HGTV.

  1. I’m actually happy that Farrah is addressing WHATEVER tf has been wrong with her….I always suspected drugs, but alcoholism explains a lot too. She seemed sober in that video. I dislike her immensely, but for Sophia’s sake, I’m happy (and I hope she truly is getting help and that it’s not just for show).

  2. Women can’t even be bloated these days without being asked if they’re pregnant. Sometimes we just have bloated days! Sometimes we really are just packing on happy weight. Jesus.

    And a Dr telling Farrah she has low brain function. Bruh. Kinda funny, kinda sad. She wasn’t always this way. This is trauma and abuse and drugs and alcohol.

  3. Leah will be pregnant soon enough. Girl dont know the meaning of slow down.

    Kail trying to pretend she’s self aware. That’s a joke.

  4. Of course Farrah has a problem with alcohol. I am not a fan of the girl but let’s be honest-her mom was abusive in every definition of the word. She slapped Farrah on camera during 16&P, while also commenting frequently on her weight and how she’d need to get it off. Her on again/off again controlling BF died in a horrific car accident while she is pregnant. Her friends were all dropping like flies. We are all shocked that she lacks emotional depth and control when she had zero guidance as a child. It’s no wonder she clutches to Sophia as her only friend instead of her child that needs parenting.

  5. I know that this is probably stupid, but I can’t help but root for Farrah. She’s awful, but I think that she’s mostly reacting to her own inner turmoil. I hope that she actually does get treatment and really works on her stuff. I wish it for her sake and Sophia’s.

  6. All women (even d-list reality celebrities) have the right to keep quiet about a pregnancy and not announce until they are ready. A few years ago I seem to recall Janelle also saying pretty much the same thing Leah is now saying – that she put on weight because she was happy and eating too much. Several months later arrived Ensley. Hopefully Leah is not preggers, however, given how fast that relationship is moving nobody would be surprised.

  7. “The cerebellum plays an important role in motor control. It may also be involved in some cognitive functions such as attention and language as well as emotional control such as regulating fear and pleasure responses”
    This makes sense with the Farrah Speak and aggressive outbursts!

  8. people are weird to immediately assume someone’s pregnant just for adding on a few pounds. she seems happy with jaylan of course it was happy weight and who gives a sh*t??
