Do you watch Teen Mom? How does this chick do it?

I watched the last episode of teen mom (I don't keep up with it) and the one girl Amber was talking about how her boyfriend was unemployed, and so she was working part time, then they went on a trip to FL. How on earth does one who does not even have a HS diploma or GED support a family of 3 entirely on her own (which I've heard her state in past episodes I've seen) working just part time and affording vacations? This does not seem like teen mom reality to me...

  • I can't answer your question because I don't know... but I DO know that I've seen a couple episodes of that show and I feel so bad for Catelynn (the one who gave her daughter up for adoption). Her parents are terrible.

  • She gets paid to be on the show. All reality TV stars are paid.

  • I do agree that maybe they are getting some type of money from the show, she may also receive PA but I am not sure. I seen the episode and they were discussing about food/gas for the trip. They stayed with an Uncle of hers and her dad came along I am sure he probably helped, who knows but good for them, they got away. I wish I could go to Florida right now!! She's a hot mess when it comes to her bf, she isn't very nice to him at all, but they are still young I am sure one day she will mature.

  • She mentioned getting govt assistance. Nice.I wondered the same things.

  • yeah, I'm pretty sure its the money she gets paid for doing the show, but the show could also be paying for the trip for free just to get something to film like they did with the gosselins at first, they'd pay for all there trips and everything so they could film them plus pay them for the show on top of that.
