Even though Corey Simms and Leah Messer‘s divorce has been finalized for a couple months, the single dad revealed in the Jan. 7 episode of Teen Mom 2 that he still has feelings for his ex, and he wants to give their relationship another shot.
Leah & Corey Talk Getting Back Together
Corey texts Leah and tells her their divorce was a mistake and that he misses her– and Leah decides this is important information to share with her new boyfriend Jeremy Calvert. Jeremy insists that Corey is the one who let his family go, but Leah is still curious if there is any spark left in their failed relationship.
When Leah talks with Corey in person, he says again that he still has feelings for her. ”When you’re ex-wife gives you butterflies, you might be in love once and for all,” Corey says. So Leah meets up with her trusted friend Kayla to decide what she wants from her relationship with her ex.
“I’ll alawys love Corey,” she said, but if they were to try and give their relationship another chance, Leah knows it will be much harder work than she’s prepared to put in — and she is worried she’ll be pushed way again.
When the exes meet up to exchange the girls a couple days later, Leah tries to find out what Corey is thinking once and for all. She told him she never stopped loving Corey, even after the divorce, but their relationship would be too hard.
“I’m going to move on if I have to,” Leah said, clearly talking about her new beau Jeremy. But Corey is still unsure if their relationship is worth fighting for, and doesn’t know how to deal with all of his feelings.
“I wish divorce wasn’t ever freaking invented,” Corey says through tears. In the meantime Leah is going to keep seeing Jeremy and work on being the best mom to her girls. Leah’s parents agree.
Chelsea Tries Potty Training Aubree
Chelsea Houska is super close has two more GED tests to take, and will only need to take two more after that to be finished. Even though she and Adam aren’t talking at the time, she is more focused on school and her daughter Aubree than Adam drama.
After taking her remaining GED test, Chelsea decides to get to work on potty training her daughter — and buys a training potty to use at home! When they get home, Chelsea decides the best way to get Aubree excited about using a potty is to start a chart of achievements. Every time she goes to the bathroom in the potty, she will get a star on her chart which hangs proudly on the fridge next to Chelsea’s GED scores!
But when the potty gets set in the living room — which makes sense, naturally — Aubree HATES it, and whines and throws it across the room! It looks like the single mom has her work cut out for her.
After an agonizing wait, Chelsea finally gets her GED results for the social studies and reading tests — and she passed those too! No Chelsea just needs two more tests and she’s that much closer to her beauty school dreams.
Jenelle Moves In With Boyfriend Josh & Regrets It

Jenelle has a candid mother moment when she goes on an adorable outing with her son Jace. They went pumpkin picking, and Jenelle tells Barbara that she is ready to have more alone time with Jace — and wants him to stay over at her and Josh’s house. But that suggestion turns into yet another yelling argument, and Jenelle storms out.
She claims her mood swings have been out of control since the fight with her mom, and her new medicine that has made her feel queazy. When Barbara and Jace come over to pick her up for their family outing, Jenelle bails — and Barbara throws another fit.
Jenelle confides in Josh that her past is starting to have major consequences on her present and future. “I’m so sick of going back and forth,” she revealed, and she just wants some stability for herself and for Jace. Even as she cries into Josh’s arms, it’s clear she knows that moving in with him so soon wasn’t the best idea.
Kailyn Meets Her Half-Sister In Austin
Kailyn Lowry flew to Austin to spend time with her cousin and family — and even gets a chance to meet her half-sister Mikayla. They look and sound so much alike, it’s clear they are related! Mikayla also doesn’t have anything to do with their dad and doesn’t want him in their life — and Kailyn has no desire to see him again.
After bonding with her sister and her cousin, Kailyn really starts to reflect on her life in Pennsylvania and how she doesn’t have any other family there, besides baby Isaac, especially after severing ties with her mom. Kailyn says as much as she cares for Mikayla, it’s hard for her to fill the role as big sis shoes when she lives so far away.
Even with Kailyn’s ex and baby daddy Jo still living in Pennsylvania, she contemplates moving down to Texas just for a little bit. She really thinks she and Isaac could have a good life there — but he doesn’t want to tear her son away from his dad.
The only thing tying her back to the East Coast is her baby daddy — but that’s all about to change next week!
