VIDEO Jeremy Calvert calls out MTV editing, promises scene-by-scene reactions this season

Jeremy Calvert daughter Addy MTV editing quote

Teen Mom 2 dad Jeremy Calvert has never been a big fan of MTV or Teen Mom 2, and after seeing a recent clip from the new season, he has taken to Instagram with a video calling the network out for its editing and promising his reaction for each upcoming scene “with what really happened.”

“…This season of Teen Mom 2 where sh!t’s not edited and portrayed correctly as it took place in real time,” Jeremy says in the video. “Now that this clip has come to my attention, you’re going to hear my own statement and my own side of sh!t as how it’s not edited correctly. So stay tuned.”

Here is Jeremy’s caption for the video:

Large media corporations have a tendency to socially engineer viewers to instill an emotion on viewers which is most lucrative for their stakeholders, holding no regard for the impact they can have on my life, and the life of my family. As a repercussion for deceitful editing, I will address each scene with what really happened. I appreciate all of your support over the years.

As far as what video clip Jeremy is upset about, I am guessing it is the scene in which Leah talks about Jeremy leaving the state for an extended period of time for his work. Leah complains that he will only be seeing their daughter Addy for one weekend over the course of four weeks (or something like that). I suppose we will know more soon.

UPDATE – Jeremy has since spoken with The Ashley’s Reality Roundup and revealed that the clip in question was one in which he told Leah about his engagement to Brooke. Jeremy says that producers insisted he tell Leah on camera, and after repeatedly trying to avoid it, Jeremy finally gave in and told her with cameras rolling. He then turned to the crew and said something along the lines of “See? It wasn’t that big of a deal for you to make me tell her on camera. You didn’t even get any good footage of [Leah freaking about it].” But Jeremy says “they edited it to look like I said that my engagement is not a big deal.” He adds that the editing has Brooke upset and, of course, makes him look bad.

As for his Instagram clip, Jeremy says “I posted that on Instagram because that scene was not portrayed right. They purposely edited it to cause drama that didn’t happen…They don’t want to show the truth, especially when it comes to the guys on the show. There’s enough drama, they don’t have to make more. They’re afraid of p!ssing the girls off, I guess.” He later adds that he hopes the other dads on the show stand up for themselves as well. “Me and all the guys [on the show] are just tired of always looking bad,” Jeremy says. “Don’t get me wrong, a lot of those guys do stupid stuff, but I’m tired of everything I do or say gets twisted.”

UPDATE – Jeremy mentions that Brooke was upset over the scene, but it appears as though she might have been REALLY upset because both have since indicated on social media that they have broken up!

Pretty much every cast member of Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom OG have complained about MTV editing at one point or another, but as commenters inevitably point out, it’s their choice to remain on the show, so they can’t really complain.

I think that Jeremy is a little different, however, and I truly believe that he intends to follow through on his previous promise(s) to quit the show. I also believe that he is currently stuck because of MTV’s practice of breaking up seasons into two parts instead of just calling it a new season. For example, we are currently watching Season 7b, which means the cast is still under the same contract they signed for Season 7a, which aired last year. (I assume the contracts are flexible enough — in MTV’s favor of course — to allow for multiple Reunion shows, etc. for “one” season.)

Anyways, I’m don’t imagine we will not be seeing Jeremy (or Addy potentially) in Season 8a, 8b, 8c, 9q, etc. He has a very good job, and I really cannot imagine what he has to deal with every time he goes online or visits a local restaurant!

All of that being said, Jeremy is squeezing a little bit of lemonade out of MTV’s lemons in the form of a clothing line with his fiance Brooke Wehr called CalvertWehr. They still haven’t launched, but you can keep checking for updates. (No word if they will be offering fluorescent yellow tiger stripe jogging pants.)

Meanwhile, while we all anxiously await Jeremy’s scene-by-scene commentary (I know I cannot wait!) let’s all check out this great video of him celebrating his 28th birthday with the help of his daughter Addy:

    Boo hiss. Cry more. Quit signing the contracts and cashing the checks.

    There. FTFY.

    • barbinop

      Totally agree. Just like Amber, Macy and the others who have said that they were going to quit filming but are still on the show. Holding out for more $$$$. About the only one I care to see is Corey and his new little family. He’s such a good daddy who truly cares for Miranda and all his girls. Jeremy is an a ××. Even more so than Adam. Love Javi too

      • Bruja

        I have no clue who these d!ckbutts think they’re fooling, but it ain’t anyone who has an IQ over 24.
        They’ve played “wronged and poorly edited” for too many seasons.. 7A, 7B, or 7C excuses are bullshit. If they really want out, they’d be done. They’ve worn out the excuses more than Jenelle has worn out her hoo-ha, imo.

      • barbinop

        Can you imagine what his daughter and former step children will say one day when they come across this picture? And with internet searches the girls and their friends will find all these inappropriate pictures. How embarrassing

  • Josie

    “Anyways, I’m don’t imagine we will not be seeing Jeremy” WOW, you’re a literary genius, Asa.”

  • Nedly Mandingo IV

    Don’t forget who signs your checks Jer. You signed a contract with MTV. Did you think their reality shows were completely clean in the editing room? You must be pretty dense if you did. Don’t forget your only foot in the door with getting that cash is with Adalyn. MTV can cut the two of you out just like that if you become too much of a hassle. Either cut ties or zip-it. So sick of hearing about these whiny baby-daddies on this show.

  • AshleyBlack

    I have to agree with asa here, I think he will follow through and actually quit. He has a great job making good money, he doesn’t *need* the MTV money. Now as far as if he wants it….well that’s a different story. I wouldn’t mind if Corey followed suit.

    • vintagecheerwine

      I respectfully disagree. He may not need the money; but, he wants the money. It’s called GREED

      • Che

        And fame

      • AshleyBlack

        I guess we will wait and see what happens come season 8. If he stays it will surprise me.

      • Lauren

        Exactly! They want the money, the Twitter followers, etc. They love the attention.

  • Cat

    “I’m don’t imagine we will not be seeing Jeremy,”

    Um, can someone please tell me what this means?

    I say this too often, so say it with me, Starcasm: EDIT.

  • TA

    How much of a retainer did you have to pay an attorney to write that statement for you to read, Jeremy?

    • vintagecheerwine

      Jeez, I think it was more than $12.00 the cost of a 12 pack. Did I pay too much ?

    • Che

      He hired farrah

  • Nicole

    I’m sorry but I have absolutely no sympathy for anyone who’s ever been cast, yes, CAST on this show. You sold the rights to your life, your privacy, your story and your truth. MTV owns you and they paid handsomely for your rights

    • vintagecheerwine

      Absolutely agree 100%! They really believe they are stars. They are only burnt out stars.

      Start searching the want ads for $4.75 an hour jobs.


      • Amanda_56

        Jeremy actually makes a lot of money with his actual job. I think it was reported close to 200k annually. He really doesn’t need to be looking for 4.75 an hour job, nor does he need MTV

    • Che

      And it’s not like he didn’t know what it was all about before hooking up with leah.

  • DonaldTrump’sCheetoTan

    Well I don’t think he’s lying. Reality TV is heavily scripted so it doesn’t surprise me. However if he wants off the show he should quit.

  • DoogieHowser

    Why is he doing the clothing line bit too?! At least Macie’s guy had the modern hipster style to sell. What is going to be soo unique about his clothes to make people want get ripped off on buying them? Jeremy doesn’t even have a style.

    • Che

      I think the clothing thing was all macys idea. Her boyfriend didn’t seem intrested in it at all.

  • FR

    His tattoo looks like a sofa or tapestry.

  • truckproductions

    “socially engineer” uh huh.. clearly another moron who spends too much time on infowars site

  • Guest

    No one except himself gives a s***.

  • Lacy

    The funny part about that scene that is mentioned is Jeremy tells Leah he’ll be gone for 3 months, then as soon as Leah talks to the camera and her friend it becomes 4 months.

    I think Jeremy is too sensitive, he doesn’t look bad in that scene.Lots of parents have to leave their children for an extended period of time to make money and support their families, it’s called being responsible. Leah looks ridiculous making a scene and crying over it.

    • HLB

      Agreed! He goes away to WORK not gamble or live in an opium den or take a motorcycle trip. Leah made it 4mo the 1st time to she told her sister( or one of her parrots that tell her what a great mother she is) when he clearly said 3mo. She “worked” in the tanning booth busn but Im not sure it lasted 3mo so she cant fathom what it is like. PS – she sold Mary Kay too but I didnt see her driving a pink Caddie.

  • ameliaBedelia76

    Isn’t this season “b” to the current season? I thought that was how Adam & jeremy had to film per their contracts. Well shall see if they are around next season. But I agree, especially the girls that cry ” I quit” and never do. At least Javi, Corey & Jeremy have jobs, can the same be said for the rest? Jo is a wanna be rapper & gary is a wanna chef

  • TrashTV

    Their producer should have a footnote in his e-mail template ‘No signing and whining’.
    Don’t book a ticket on the MTV gravy train when you don’t want to go where you know they will go.

  • Lauren

    The way I see it, contract or no contract, you can always leave. But considering how none of them have really struggled or in the case of the girls worked a day in their life they’re not going to pass up easy money. So you really have no room to complain about editing or anything. Quit the show if it’s that bad.
