MTV Doesn't Like Teen Mom 2 Cast Either

Teen Mom 2 Cast Earn Laughable Salary
Amber Portwood Spotted Cackling At Payless Shoes

Sources close to Teen Mom 2 stars Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry have revealed the two moms are making substantially less money than the girls from the original incarnation of the popular reality series!Our fellow Teen Mom loving bloggers over at Hollybaby.com have talked to friends close to Jenelle and Kailyn and they reveal the two new reality superstars both pulled in only $9,000 for the first 12 episodes of Teen Mom 2. In stark contrast, Amber Portwood reported financial earnings of $280,000 for 2010 as part of her legal battles stemming from the felony battery charges filed against her.
From Hollybaby:

“Things with Jenelle aren’t good. She has no money and can’t find a job,” as source very close to Jenelle tells us. “She is making around $9,000 for her first 12 episodes of Teen Mom 2, season 1.”

Another source close to Kailyn shares with us the same amount: “Kailyn is also making around the same $9,000 mark!”

Before you get too defensive on behalf of the newbie batch of Teen Moms, remember that Farrah, Maci, Catelynn and Amber didn’t start making a lot of money until their series was renewed for a second season. Given the popularity of Teen Mom 2 it is all but assured that they will be back for a second season and will more than likely receive a similar deal to the original four girls for the first Teen Mom.

I also have to assume that MTV is putting a lot of money into scholarship funds or savings accounts for the children, right? It makes sense in that it wouldn’t allow for the parents to blow all the money on fancy cars and plastic surgery while also keeping the girls strapped for cash so the show would maintain a bit of its authenticity. Harsh, I know, but true. (If MTV isn’t shelling out big bucks to the children they should be ashamed. These girls are generating millions of dollars for the network and they deserve to be compensated fairly for that!)


This is why they sell their souls to the tabloids. But whatever, Teen Mom 2 is a mess, it doesn't hold a candle to Teen Mom 1

lol Jenelle and Keiffer alone would make me watch every week
publicfrenemy 25th-Mar-2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
yeah, I don't watch these shows because I like or relate to the girls. I watch them because I enjoy yelling at my television. Jenelle delivers like no other.

i totally agree
recenthistory 25th-Mar-2011 08:19 pm (UTC)
Teen Mom 2 is only in their first season. And I'm sorry, $9,000 an episode is a lot of money at that age. Who knows what they've blown it on.
kookyklam 25th-Mar-2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
the article is saying 9000 TOTAL, not per ep.
recenthistory 25th-Mar-2011 08:21 pm (UTC)
I know, I just realized that and tried to edit my comment but you beat me to it so I can't =). Still, $9,000 for doing nothing is a good deal of cash. We've all seen how great Janelle is with money though, so it doesn't surprise me she's broke.
the_wolski 25th-Mar-2011 08:19 pm (UTC)
why should they be getting paid a lot tho

i mean, this is probably the best paying job that they would get tbh, better then nothing
x_patti_x 25th-Mar-2011 08:23 pm (UTC)
because MTV is making tons of money off that show!!
the_wolski 25th-Mar-2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
ya but that makes sense imo

like idk MTV is the genius behind it
andream_09 25th-Mar-2011 09:01 pm (UTC)

People shouldn't be compensated for getting pregnant at a young age.
asha_greyjoy 25th-Mar-2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
I hope the one with the twins get more money. She needs it the most out of all the Teen Moms
factorywannabe 25th-Mar-2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
she's the best mom, too. i think she's the one with her act together (chelsea obsessed with adam, kailyn getting constantly kicked out over having a boyfriend). she's the maci of this season.
2perfect4words 26th-Mar-2011 01:05 am (UTC)
seriously this! Plus, medical bills are EXPENSIVE! At least, hopefully, mtv can pay for those!
bcain1992 25th-Mar-2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
Well they shouldn't get paid as much, I'm sorry but the Teen Mom 2 cast is shit. Bring back the originals please.
______glory 25th-Mar-2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
none of them deserve shit tbh

I agree, Ginger.

Teen Mom 2 is always really depressing or really boring, there's no middle. And they need to kick that one with the twins off the show.
clubland 25th-Mar-2011 08:26 pm (UTC)
All she does is cry lol

true romance <3
publicfrenemy 25th-Mar-2011 08:29 pm (UTC)
she's actually the most interesting to me. It's heartbreaking to see a child go through medical troubles, but it does make for compelling tv, imo.

that and I'm sure it must be cathartic for people who also have special needs children.
persephone_tree 25th-Mar-2011 08:35 pm (UTC)
um no she's one of the only girls capable of even mothering or caring about someone that's not herself
elvenqueen86 25th-Mar-2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
I think they should keep her to show teens how difficult it would be to 1) have twins and 2) have a baby with medical issues. They should focus more on the financial aspect of having a child with medical issues though.
lil_silverheart 25th-Mar-2011 10:49 pm (UTC)
Leah is the only reason I watch tbh.
factorywannabe 25th-Mar-2011 11:44 pm (UTC)
no, they need to kick catelynn off of teen mom 1. at least leah kept her kids. there is absolutely no reason for catelynn to be on TEEN MOM when she doesn't have her kid anymore.

i need to do my taxes.
cowrie 25th-Mar-2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
I wish I could be obnoxious, abusive, and irresponsible with my vagina and make that much money in a year. fml.
marsdeafaden 25th-Mar-2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
That makes me regret being responsible when I was a teenager.
stelarjesss 25th-Mar-2011 09:02 pm (UTC)
yea but she probably has very little of that left. i doubt she has the smarts to actually save that money.
treegrowth 25th-Mar-2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
lol true. i am sure it all went to coke, weed, spray tan and 50% of her local walmart, but it sucks that it didn't go to a more deserving person.

thrillisgone_89 25th-Mar-2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
i just can't wait for the original "teen mom" to come back. hopefully caitlynn and tyler are gone.
brandon198403 25th-Mar-2011 08:29 pm (UTC)
Is it coming back though??
thrillisgone_89 25th-Mar-2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
yep. they're filming rn. it's coming back after the next season of "16 and pregnant."
kookyklam 25th-Mar-2011 08:34 pm (UTC)
it cant be back soon enough... i thought it would be after this ended but it seems like summer cuz they are going to bore everyone with 16 and preg first
laughsforfree 25th-Mar-2011 08:23 pm (UTC)
As I'm sitting here choking down some dry pretzels because I can't afford groceries, I'm wondering if I can somehow trick Mtv into:

A) Believing I'm pregnant (I'm thinking a beach ball and borrowed baby might do the trick!)

B) Believing I'm still in my teens (Still not sure on how to pull that one off)

I will take $9,000, hell, I'll take $8,000!
foureyedgirl 25th-Mar-2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
i still look like a teenager so i can pretend to be the pregnant one and you can be my girlfriend :)

Teen Mom 2 is boring as fuck, except for when I'm yelling at my tv over what a scumbag Jenelle is or what a complete freaking moron Kailyn is.
