Jenelle Evans and the cast members of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 are rumored to be raking in the big bucks. However, according to Jenelle, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Jenelle has taken to her Twitter account to set the record straight. When a fan asked, “Dont you make like $50k an episode??” she replied, “I WISH.” Earlier this morning, another fan asked, “Do you really not have any money??” to which she said, “I really don’t.”
Previous reports have claimed that Jenelle is making $75k per season. Amber Portwood, of the original Teen Mom was rumored to be making $140k per season and was the highest paid of the bunch. Those amounts are hugeÂ—especially since a season is only a few months of filming and they sometimes do multiple seasons per year.
Maci Bookout, star of Teen Mom, previously told press that they are not rich, by any means. They live just like everyone else, only they are on a reality show.
Jenelle Evans’ new claims just go to show how Teen Mom is not glamourizing pregnancy. The girls still struggle and they deal with plenty of heat from the press when don’t do things perfectly. The show is a job for them, just like anyone else’s job.
