Teen Mom 2's Leah Calvert: I'm Not an Incompetent Mother
Of the "hurtful" accusations by ex Corey Simms, Ali and Aleeah's mom says, "I can't say that I don't have hard feelings, because I do"
After months of fighting over custody of their 5-year-old twins in court, Teen Mom‘s Leah Calvert and ex-husband Corey Simms finally come to an agreement in the season premiere of the MTV reality series.
“Even though I’m annoyed that I have to take a drug test, I’m relieved that our custody hearing is over,” Calvert says in a clip of the brand-new episode. “I’m hoping we can move past this for our girls’ sake.”
Simms had been seeking full custody of their daughters Ali and Aleeah on the grounds that Calvert was an “unfit mother” after she repeatedly dropped the kids off at school late.
“Like I told you from day one, what I was doing was not a personal attack towards you,” Simms explains to Calvert. “It might have seemed like that, but what I was seeing I just didn’t agree with. I didn’t like the tardies because next year they aren’t going to like tardies in kindergarden.”
Now that their nasty court battle has come to an end, the pair seem to be on slightly better terms, although Calvert is still upset over Simms’ accusations.
“I can’t say that I don’t have hard feelings, because I do,” she says. “Being called an incompetent mother and this and that was really hurtful.”
But despite their rocky past, the focus for Calvert and Simms is still on their children.
“It feels like we both have little chips on our shoulders and we can’t stand each other, because that’s how I feel, I’m sure that you feel the same,” says Simms. “But I just want us to do the best for them.”
To hear the verdict in their custody case, tune in for the new season of Teen Mom 2 Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
