It may seem that being a reality star just means letting strangers come into your home and film you as you go about your day. Many people don’t realize that the stars of most reality shows, especially long-running ones like Teen Mom, get paid to appear on the show — and that means that many of the cast members have managed to rack up some pretty serious funds. After all, there has to be a reason that they endure all of the speculation, scrutiny, and attention from the public eye!
Some of the girls have used their money for personal things, and others have used it to help out their families. Kailyn has been pretty conservative with hers, which is good news for her three sons. Considering that Kail is a recent college graduate, the fact that she’s saved this much is really impressive!
Kailyn just underwent one of the more stressful pregnancies in Teen Mom history, but she gave birth to her third healthy son, who is still going by the moniker “Baby Lo.” Even though having children is something Kailyn wanted, they also can get pretty expensive. Luckily, Kailyn has a pretty nice nest egg to sit on. CelebrityNetWorth.com estimates celebrities’ net worths by “analyzing publicly available information such as salaries, real estate holdings, divorces, record sales, royalties, and endorsements,” according to Romper. Kailyn hasn’t confirmed the accuracy of their estimate, but the website lists Kailyn’s net worth as $25,000.
In addition to having a nice security blanket to fall back on if she ever needs it, Kailyn is also an author, and has recently graduated college. Romper also reports that, although MTV hasn’t confirmed, the stars likely make between $75,000 and $300,000 per episode, so Kailyn’s nest egg will quickly be expanding.
Kailyn has two nonfiction books, an adult coloring book, and one children’s book under her belt, she told Wet Paint that her long-term career goals don’t lie singularly in writing, or in being a Teen Mom star. “If the opportunity arises I would love to be a host at some point. I’m willing to work to get there and do behind-the-scenes production and that kind of stuff,” she told the website. Apparently Kail has a taste for showbiz! But Kailyn also has some other side hustles that she’s worked on in the past.
She briefly ran a home decor blog called Live, Love, Linens with her best friend Sterlin Black. Even though the blog isn’t active anymore, you can still check out the Instagram account for the archived home decoration ideas. Kailyn also secured her degree in mass communication from Delaware State University this May after six years of balancing her time on Teen Mom and her children with her studies. Right now, Kailyn is focusing on book signings and raising Baby Lo, but it likely won’t be long before she finds her next stepping stone.
In the meantime, if you can’t get enough of Kail, you can check her out on another show in addition to Teen Mom. She’ll be joining the ranks of Marriage Bootcamp with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, this upcoming season.
