Leah and Jeremy Calvert’s marriage was put to the test in season five when her 4-year-old daughter Ali’s heartbreaking muscular dystrophy diagnosis was compounded by constant fights about the pipeline engineer’s grueling work schedule.
Now the couple is facing a new challenge. During the Jan. 8 taping of the reunion special with Dr. Drew (which airs in two parts on April 15 and 22), Leah dropped a bomb no one saw coming: Days before her ex-husband (and Ali and twin Aleeah’s father) Corey Simms, 24, married his current wife Miranda Patterson, “he told Leah he wanted to be with her again,” an insider tells In Touch.
Though Leah, 21, turned down Corey’s advance, Jeremy, 25, has expressed concern about her close relationship with her ex.
“Corey messed with [Leah’s] head,” says Jeremy. “So Jeremy was glad [when Corey did go through with his wedding],” says Leah, “because that way he couldn’t come between us anymore.”
After Kailyn Lowry got violent with now-husband Javi Marroquin, 21, last season, the mom of two (Isaac, 4, and Lincoln, 5 months) apologized for her “humiliating” actions.
But the Dover, Del., resident, 22, clearly didn’t learn her lesson. “The night before the reunion, Kailyn smacked Javi during a fight,” says a source. “She was forced to tell Dr. Drew about it.”
Jenelle Evans, 22, freaked when she found flirty messages between her beau, Nathan Griffith, 26, and another woman this season, but a source says he was just as indiscreet when they came to LA from North Myrtle Beach, S.C., for the reunion.
“Jenelle was sick in bed,” says a source, revealing that instead of caring for his pregnant love, the ex-Marine hit on girls at the hotel bar. “One even recognized him and called Nathan out on his behavior. He just said, ‘Jenelle who?’”
Chelsea Houska, 22, often harps on the fact that her ex, Adam Lind, who has three DUIs under his belt, isn’t the best role model for their daughter Aubree, 4.
But at the reunion, the part-time construction worker, 24, reveals shocking secrets from the Sioux Falls, S.D., native’s past. He claims that Chelsea slept with one of his three older brothers “about a month before she met Adam,” says a source. “His brother told him; Chelsea never said anything!”
Adam’s other bombshell? “She slept with one of Adam’s best friends while she was seven months pregnant!” the source adds. “What Chelsea did was pretty gross.”
