Why are the girls on Teen Mom always broke? Don't they get paid by MTV?

Isn't that horrid Amber Portwood thing making 6 figures? So I assume the new girls make bank too.

  • IDK? Good question.

  • I often wonder the same thing, but the only explanation I can think of is that they make them wait for them money until they are done filming so as to properly portray a teen mom's real life situation.

  • That's what I'm saying. But I do think they just probably haven't received the money yet. All the "new" episodes were filmed like 6+ months ago.

  • I think they get paid after the season. If you see them in the tabloids, their taking trips, getting hair done, designer purses. I dont think money is a problem now"!

  • I think that they probably get paid after the show is over. I've wondered about it, too, though. That's the only thing I can figure.

  • I don't know a lot of teenage single moms who can afford their own place do you?? Maybe thats where they are putting their money, to take care of their kid.
