Teen Mom 2: My Thoughts on Jenelle and Leah

For those who've been watching Teen Mom 2, you've been following Jenelle and Leah, and you've probably got a strong opinion on at least one of them.

Jenelle is a person that I want to like, but I'm finding it so difficult. She dreams big but keeps messing up. And shady boyfriend Keiffer isn't helping. He's a mess - he doesn't work, smokes weed at Jenelle's mom's house and seems like he'd leave Jenelle in a second if she wasn't providing fame or money.

The thing is, as much as I dislike Jenelle at times, I see why she is the way she is. Her mom is dragging her down, too, although trying to pick her up. Her mom is probably one of the biggest nags I've ever seen. I feel awful for Jenelle when she talks about how no one ever hugs her or says she loves her. I believe that her mom doesn't do or say these things, as Jenelle states, which is why Jenelle is looking for love in all the wrong places.

Leah, on the other hand, is the girl I'm hoping has a lot of success. To begin, she's pretty in that pretty but not intimidating way, which makes her easily likable. Secondly, she made mistakes, but truly turned her life around. She and Corey are working really hard to make their family work, and I truly hope that they do.

I also feel terrible for Leah and Corey. When we hear about Aliannah's problems, we really hope that she's just developing slowly and won't have long term health issues. As we watch Leah and Corey cry, we feel their pain - their situation is hard! They're young parents of twins dealing with such a difficult situation, yet they are growing as a family, rather than against each other.
