If at first you don't succeed, try and then try again?
That's how the classic adage goes, right?
Yes, and it's also the philosophy Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert appeared to be following over the last few episodes of Teen Mom 2.
Were the exes ever officially back together, as certain episodes suggested and reports indicated?
We can't say for certain.
But we do have a status update on Messer and Calvert following the latest episode of the MTV franchise. Scroll down for more...
1. Did They or Didn't They?
On last week's installment of Teen Mom 2, Jeremy and Leah had planned to go out on a date in order to see if romantic feelings remained. But then Calvert canceled on his ex.
2. Uh-Oh. What Happened?
Jeremy's grandfather went to the hospital, so Calvert did have a rather solid excuse.
3. WTH, Leah?!?
Fans were pissed that Leah had even thought about rekindling this doomed romance, with at least one writing on Instagram: "You are seriously soooooo god damn thirsty for this date with Jeremy it’s pathetic. If he wanted to be with you he would. He likes hooking up and that’s clearly it. Stop giving it up and letting him string you along."
4. Another Chimed in As Follows:
"If y’all really wanted to be together you’d have gotten together by now. Both of you just like hanging and shacking up."
5. A Quick History Lesson:
The couple got married in 2012 and welcomed their daughter, Addie, the following year. Jeremy’s job then took him away from home very often... and the two ended up divorcing in 2015.
6. Cut to the 2019 Teen Mom 2 Finale...
... and Leah went to divorce court with her sister, prompting some very bad memories of her past with Jeremy.
