Leah Messer, with perfect hair and makeup, kisses her daughter.

Just when you thought Teen Mom could not get any stranger, on last night’s episode of the reality hit, Leah Messer revealed she had an affair with an ex one week before marrying Corey Simms.

The affair isn’t the strange part. They are young after all. But when on Earth did Leah find time, with twins – one being a special needs child, to have such an affair? And why is her makeup always so perfect?

We as viewers have always wondered about the mysterious money struggles that the cast often cries about, but last night’s episode has only given us more reason to question the “realness” of their lives.

Take a look at 10 mysteries of Teen Mom below! And tell us: do you agree or disagree with our wonders!
