Last week, the world learned that Leah Messer is dating Jason Jordan, a 38-year-old fellow West Virginian and father to a 2-year-old girl.
Leah's love life has always been a subject of intense interest to Teen Mom 2 fans, even though her storylines on the show these days tend to be centered around the challenges she faces as a mother of three young girls, one of whom suffers from a debilitating medical condition.
Now, it seems some fans think Leah should take a page from the series' producers by focusing less on men and more on her daughters.
It's an unfair allegation that seems to serve no purpose other than maligning the reputation of a loving and devoted mother.
But this is the internet in 2018, a time and virtual place where it's not hard for such fake news to gain traction.

Logan Paul and Chloe Bennett just made their big couple debut in public, and their fans — okay, mostly Logan’s — were all about capturing the moment. The YouTube star and the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star have been rumored to be an item for a…
If you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers, you know where all of this is heading — but that doesn’t make the drama any less fun to watch.
Right now, fans are still buzzing over one of Becca’s men being a virgin. Last night, Colton Underwood told Becca.
Fans are entertained, but not everyone is convinced. Some are urging Colton’s famous ex, Aly Raisman, to expose him as a liar.
After Colton “came out” to Becca as a virgin, viewers on social media were quick to point out that … he totally dated Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman for a couple of years.
“I just want a tell-all interview with Aly Raisman on Colton,” one members of the Bachelor Nation tweeted.
They know that not every couple has sex while dating, but, to them, the idea of two beautiful adult athletes like Colton and Aly dating for two years defies belief.
“Weekly reminder tweet,” another wrote on Twitter. “That I want Queen Aly Raisman to drag Colton and expose him.”
This person clearly believes that Colton is lying, perhaps for a reality career storyline or perhaps to stand out among Becca’s suitors.
Some took their disbelief to Aly Raisman’s Instagram, where they commented under her latest photo (this photo).
“Speak the truth,” a commenter demanded of her. “Is Colton a virgin. Like how did he restrain from all that?”
By all that, this person means Aly’s incredible athletic figure.
Other fans were less confrontational and, appropriately, kept the conversation to themselves as they reflected upon this week’s episode.
One tweeted: “I love how Becca basically just asked Colton, ‘so is Aly Raisman a virgin too?'”
Becca did not, of course, literally ask that — she did not mention Aly’s name. It is unclear if she knows Colton’s dating history.
At one point during the episode, Becca got up and left — and fans were quick to point out that it seemed like she was disappointed.
“Becca now realizes she will not be having sex with Colton in the fantasy suite,” one tweeted. “And that was def her plan.”
While no one could blame Becca for wanting to get under Mr. Underwood’s underwear, she clarified that reality television can be misleading.
“For the record,” Becca tweeted. “I think I got up just to go to the bathroom sooooo…”
In other words, no, she did not just get up and storm off in a huff after realizing that Colton was not some sort of tantric sex god.
“Colton telling me he’s a virgin was unexpected because he hasn’t experienced a ton of life like most people at this part of their lives have,” Becca shared honestly.
“But it means so much that he was able to open up about something that was so difficult for him,” Becca says.
“I loved when he said, ‘It’s not a marriage thing for me, it’s a heart thing.’” Becca explains. “I appreciate someone who takes that so seriously.”
Colton also reflected on the importance of being honest about his sexual history — in this case, the lack thereof.
He recalls how, after ignoring romantic pursuits because of his enthusiasm for his football career, he would bluff while speaking to teammates as they shared their sexual experiences.
“It really threw me for a loop because it was like, ‘Who am I? Why did I make up lies? Why wasn’t I proud of who I was?'” Colton says.
“‘Why didn’t I stand up for the man I am?’” he still asks himself. “And that’s why now it’s important for me to share that with you.”
Becca certainly appreciated his honestly.
Of course, you can’t talk about virgins in the Bachelor fam without talking about Ashley Iaconetti.
(Colton Underwood cries less than she does, though … so far)
Ashley was not super thrilled with this week’s episode
“I’m not happy about the way Colton’s virginity was portrayed on this episode,” Ashley tweeted.
Ashley explained that she did not like seeing virginity portrayed “like it’s a reason not to further pursue a romantic relationship with someone…”
For some people, it might be a dealbreaker. Ashley has probably encountered people who fetishize her virginity — which is also creepy.
Of course, Ashley has found love with Jared Haibon. In fact, the two are engaged. After searching for so long, she deserves to be happy.
It’s important to note that it is entirely possible, even if its is very uncommon, for two adults to date each other for two years without having sex.
Some people are asexual, and do not experience sexual attraction. Asexuality actually has an entire spectrum.
Others may choose to remain chaste for religious reasons, because of trauma, or simply — as Colton says — as a matter of the heart.
There’s also plenty to be said for definitions of virginity, which vary widely — virginity is a social construct.
Some people who have had a great deal of sexual experiences consider themselves “virgins” because they or their communities have decided to define virginity in a certain way.
Regardless, Colton’s sexual history — or, again, lack thereof — does not disqualify him from being a viable candidate for Becca, or any woman’s, heart.
Just because you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers and know how things end doesn't mean that you don't want to enjoy the episode in peace.
But, this week, The Bachelorette was interrupted by the exact opposite of peace — it was an announcement of Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick.
And the Bachelor Nation was pissed.
Chris Harrison warned viewers in advance that Trump would be preempting the broadcast.
But the Bachelor Nation has been waiting for ages to watch Colton Underwood tell Becca Kufrin that he's a virgin.
Most people get their breaking news from Twitter and their in-depth coverage from online articles these days, so it was understandably difficult for many people to understand why they needed to waste 20 minutes of their lives.
And, as you may have heard, Trump isn't exactly hitting any record highs for Presidential popularity.
So the Bachelor Nation took to Instagram to vent their fury and frustration. Take a look:
1. Fans were pissed
2. Is this evidence of Trump hypocrisy?
3. This has happened before
4. The language became colorful
5. Trump was not what the Bachelor Nation wanted to see
6. This is what you’d call a swing voter
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have always been and will always be THE Teen Mom couple.
They’ve been together since they were 12 years old, and they’re the only couple from the 16 and Pregnant days who are still together.
Sure, there’s been some ups and downs, and there were a few times it seemed like they weren’t going to make it, but they’ve managed to pull through.
They’re celebrating 14 years together this year, and since they’re both only 26 … it’s just pretty wild, you know?
But as difficult as this may be to believe, there are some people in the world who don’t want other people to be happy.
And that’s why there are several Teen Mom fans who are just absolutely certain that a Baltierra divorce is on the horizon.
See, both Catelynn and Tyler have had a rough, rough time lately.
After Catelynn gave birth to their daughter, Nova, back in 2015, she developed some pretty intense postpartum depression, and she’s been dealing with depression and anxiety ever since.
She’s had a hard time dealing with it, but when she got pregnant last fall only to suffer a miscarriage, things got so bad that she began contemplating suicide.
She checked into a treatment center to get some help, which was absolutely the right thing to do, but it did leave Tyler in a position of taking care of everything at home by himself.
And at the time, he had a whole lot to take care of.
There was little Nova, obviously, and his new children’s clothing business, but on top of that, he felt the need to keep an eye on his sister and her children since his father had just gone to rehab.
His sister ended up going to rehab a few months later, so it’s understandable that he felt that need.
And then, on top of all of that, he was dealing with the grief from the miscarriage, as well as his own mental health problems — it was around this time when he was diagnosed as bipolar.
Honestly, it’s amazing they made it throught that rough patch at all, especially since there was talk from both of them that maybe they weren’t right for each other anymore.
But they’re still together, because “in sickness and health” and all that, and although Tyler’s been making some questionable comments about how unhappy he’s been, it does seem like they’re going strong.
Tyler’s been going strong himself in a different way — after losing weight a few months ago, he’s been working on bulking up.
He’s shared shirtless selfies to document his progress, and over the weekend, he shared a before and after pic: the left photo is what he looked like a month ago, and on the right is what he looks like now.
So he looks really, really great, right?
But more important, he feels great, too.
“Finally making some progress on this goal of mine,” he wrote in his caption for the photo. “I think it’s important to document your journey, even if you don’t ever decide to share it.”
“Because the days you don’t feel like putting in the work because you don’t feel like you’re seeing results or you’re just feeling lazy as hell, those are the days those pics come in handy to motivate & prove to yourself what you are doing & why!”
He explained that this new photo is the result of “40 lbs down & only 2 months of working out.”
He also added that “For once in my life I’m actually pumped & pretty proud of myself!”
So what does any of that have to do with his marriage?
According to several of Tyler’s followers, the issue is that Catelynn doesn’t seem to be getting into fitness like he is. And that, of course, is grounds for divorce.
“Why do I feel like he’s gonna get his body riiiight & leave Catelynn…..” one person asked.
“Amid all these divorce rumors you think that you’d be posting tons of you and your wife still in love!” another person told him. “Sadly we’ll most likely see in a few months that you guys are indeed separating. That’s usually how it runs.”
One of his followers speculated that “Soon he will find himself someone that loves themselves and will actually be happy in a relationship that doesn’t keep dragging him down.”
Another put that sentiment in much simpler terms with “Tyler gonna be picking up a new hottie soon.”
Some people were especially cruel about it, like this jackass that wrote “Now GET A HOT mentally stable awesome new girlfriend, man you’re wasting your life with this chick.”
And that’s not even touching all the people who insisted that Catelynn is a “fat cow” who should be the one working out instead of Tyler.
OK, look, all the divorce rumors aside, is it honestly so hard to believe that maybe he just actually loves her?
That regardless of the changes he makes to his own body, he can still appreciate hers, and perhaps even be attracted to it?
Maybe they will get divorced, and if they do, it would probably be more about them growing apart and less about his new muscles.
Either way … can we maybe focus a little more on Tyler’s accomplishment here and a little less on Catelynn’s weight?
While we don’t know her exact due date, we do know that Jinger Duggar will soon give birth to her first child.
Early in her pregnancy, Jinger revealed that she was expecting to deliver in early July.
So now that Independence Day has come and gone, it comes as no surprise that fans are intently watching her social media pages for indications that Jinger has gone into labor.
Despite rumors to the contrary, it seems that Jinger is still pregnant.
Which is why some fans are upset to see that her hair color has changed slightly.
As you may know, there’s some debate as to whether or not it’s safe for pregnant women to color their hair.
It seems to be one of those arguments in which junk science and urban legends reign supreme, which is why many of Jinger’s Instagram followers saw fit to lecture her in the comments section of her latest Instagram photo.
“How can you safely dye hair while pregnant?” wrote one person.
“I guess I’ve always heard the dangers of the chemicals are an absolute no during pregnancy,” another remarked.
Some fans took a subtler route, confessing to ignorance on the matter, then promptly throwing shade:
“Love your hair Jinger! I wasn’t allowed to color mine when I was pregnant,” remarked one such follower.
“I was told it could harm the baby. Things must have changed since then.”
Others defended Jinger and pointed out that there’s no evidence that mothers can harm fetuses by coloring their hair.
“I’m a licensed cosmetologist and coloring is fine,” countered one person.
“We do recommend holding off the bleach till done with pregnancy, but it’s really to each his own!”
Another wrote, “The colored parts in her hair don’t reach to the roots, so I’m pretty sure there’s no problem with it.”
Generally, when you’re looking for authoritative answers on a medical question, it’s best to look somewhere other than the comments on an Instagram post, and according to the American Pregnancy Association’s website, it’s perfectly safe for expectant moms to dye their hair:
“Although fairly limited, most research indicates the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy,” the site reads.
“In addition, only small amounts of hair dye may be absorbed by the skin, leaving little that would be able to reach the fetus. As such, this small amount is not considered harmful to the fetus.”
So we guess Jinger is in the clear on this one.
But don’t expect her to take to IG and defend herself against the haters.
For one thing, that would go against Duggar protocol.
Aside from the family firebrand Derick Dillard, no one in the extended Duggar clan engages with online trolls.
And now that Derick has been fired by TLC, you can bet that Jim Bob is more adamant than other about maintaining a wholesome image on. social media.
On top of all that, Jinger has more serious concerns on her mind these days.
She’s reportedly in nesting mode these days, and she’ll soon be the first Duggar woman of her generation to welcome a child outside the state of Arkansas.
It’s a lot of pressure — and we say if Jinger wants to treat herself to some highlights, we should all just ease off and let the woman live!

As has been documented at length over the last couple years, June Shannon recently lost over 300 pounds.
On Friday night’s episode of her reality show, From Not to Hot, however, the long-time D-Lister was focused on losing something else:
Nearly all of her clothing.
Having packed back on some of the weight she lost on Season 1 via a tummy tuck, liposuction, dieting and lots of working out, June was nervous for a lingerie shoot that had been arranged awhile back on her behalf.
“The lingerie shoot that Gina booked for me is in a couple days and I’m nervous as sh-t,” Shannon said early on, adding:
“Tonia is a celebrity stylist. She’s got this new lingerie catalogue and she wants me to be on the front cover.
“I know I’ve gained a couple pounds and I’ve got to come up with some quick fixes to get some of this weight off so I look good in this lingerie.”
Among these quick fixes that we witnessed on air yesterday?
Shots of apple cider vinegar… running very fast on the treadmill while covered in Preparation H and wrapped in Saran Wrap.. and also wearing head-to-toe trash bags in a steam room.
We’re not making any of those up.
“How much do you need to lose?” Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, asked her mother as June attempted these ridiculous activities.
“Probably a good 25,” Mama June replied, grabbing hold of her belly.
I think that’s a little under what you need,” Honey Boo Boo replied, just being honest. “I think a good 45. I’m being serious.”
Shannon, because she’s sort of terrible, went on to suggest that Alan join her on her journey to get healthier.
“I’m perfect the way I am, but if you need the support …” said Honey Boo Boo, coming across far more mature than her mom.
When it came time for the photo shoot, boyfriend Geno Doak noticed that June needed some public hair grooming before she could strike any poses.
Really, once again.
We’re not making that up.
“Chewbacca down there, we got a little scruffy going on,” Geno said, making us nauseous and adding:
“We gotta trim that sh-t up some.”
Geno then grabbed an electric razor, said he formerly worked as a landscaper and… let’s just move on.
June ended up thrilled with the results of the pictorial, saying the photos proved her dedication to her family.
“If this doesn’t show you that I will do anything to keep my family fed, I mean nothing will,” she offered.
Could she be a lingerie model as a career?
June pondered this option, while Geno quipped in reply:
“If you’re going to do it full time, I think we should invest in a lawnmower.”
Okay, that’s funny.
Earlier this week, fans were convinced that Jinger Duggar had secretly given birth thanks to a cryptic Instagram post shared by her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
Jinger and Jeremy never confirmed the arrival with an announcement, and now we know there’s very good reason for that …
As evidenced by a new round of pics posted last night, Jinge is very much still pregnant.
The couple posted one artsy shot on their Instagram page with the rest available on their joint website.
“We’re so excited to have pictures back from our maternity photo shoot,” Jinger captioned the pic.
As many fans have pointed out, the fact that the photos were taken at the Walt Disney Concert Hall may be a sly way of confirming the rumor that Jinger and Jeremy are moving to Los Angeles.
Vuolo was recently accepted into a doctoral theology program in the city but has not yet revealed if he plans to enroll.
In a statement on the couple’s website, Jinger confirmed that she and Jeremy have spent some time in LA yet, but made no mention of their future plans:
“A couple of weeks ago, Jeremy and I traveled to Los Angeles for meetings at The Master’s Seminary,” Jinger wrote.
“While there we had the privilege of spending time with our dear friend Madisen Mahoney,” she added.
“Since I was in my 34th week of pregnancy and Madisen is a wonderfully skilled photographer, we thought it made sense to head to downtown LA and take a few pictures! Here are the results.”
In a way, relocating to the West Coast would be a dream come true for the mom-to-be, who has always open about her desire to live in a major city.
In her youth, Jinger often spoke of moving to New York City, much to her parents’ chagrin.
Jeremy proposed to Jinger in New York as a way of honoring her childhood ambitions.
So the question of where Jinger and Jeremy will raise their child remains a mystery.
But on other issues, Jinger has been an open book.
We know, for example, that she’s expecting a baby girl, and her due date is in early July:
“We are so happy to announce that we are having a BABY GIRL!” she wrote in a blog post in April.
“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this Summer.
“We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love.”
And of course, fans are almost as excited as the expectant mom and dad.
