However, Maci has had several pay increases since the year her book was released. She now likely makes as much as her OG sisters.
Amber Portwood revealed how much she was paid during a court ruling, and admitted that she was paid $140,000 per six-month period, meaning she makes $280,000 a year, not including promotions and bonuses. This was back in 2011, so Amber probably makes a good bit more at this point, meaning her new son should be very well taken care of.
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra recently splurged on a brand new mansion, and if she makes as much as her OG co-stars, it explains why. And if Tyler Baltierra is making even half of Catelynn’s $280,000, the couple will be set for life. On top of that, it’s rumored that the couple made around $100,000 for starring on Couple’s Therapy.
But the cast members didn’t make this much money when they first started on Teen Mom. In fact, not even recent Teen Mom 2 addition Briana DeJesus makes as much as the OG cast.
She allegedly doesn’t even make as much as her ex-boyfriend Javi Marroquin, who has appeared on the show for several seasons. So it’s no wonder that the cast members of MTV’s newest addition to the franchise, Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, aren’t exactly raking in the dough.
One of the show’s new cast members, Kayla Sessler, even revealed that she took on another job to make ends meet. Next time you’re at an Ulta Beauty store in her area, she might even be ringing you up!
However, not all of the Young and Pregnant stars have turned to a side-gig to make ends meet. Ashley Jones and her baby daddy Bar Smith seem to be so broke that they’re begging fans for money!
