We’ve long suspected the girls of Teen Mom earn big bucks – I mean they have to afford the boob jobs, and the attorneys, and all the other ridiculous they blow their money on! Well apparently all Teen Moms are not created equal in terms of paychecks and according to Star Magazine (via RadarOnline) they earn a veritable mixed bag of salaries. Some high… some well, still high enough.
Jenelle Evans, who brings in big ratings for being, well, a total trainwreck earns an estimated $75,000 a year according to a source. “And her mom gets paid $65,000: she calls her an overpaid babysitter,” the source adds. In addition to the paycheck, Jenelle “also gets a lot of gift cards to places like The Olive Garden from MTV as a bonus payment.” I wonder if she got a gift card for the world’s worst boob job?
Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been a wreck for a while now and is desperately pleading with a judge to send her to prison!
Amber was offered a second chance by the judge back in January. She could’ve avoided prison if she successfully completed a drug rehab program. Amber has been in and out of jail and is now requesting that she be sent to prison so she can serve the time and get clean.
During a routine hearing yesterday, Amber admitted to the judge she would always “be a bad girl” and that she hasn’t been clean at all since starting the program at the beginning of the year. Amber told the judge she couldn’t stand the drug program and wanted out. The only alternative for Amber is prison.
Amber was taken into custody and will sit in the county jail until her sentencing – which could be up to five years per the original agreement.
This makes me so sad for her that she thinks the only way to help herself is prison. She clearly has had some deep problems all along, but how much of it is related to the pressures of being in the media spotlight at such a young age?
TELL US – DO YOU THINK MTV IS TO BLAME FOR ANY OF AMBER’S ISSUES? DO YOU THINK PARTICIPATING IN TEEN MOM IS TOO MUCH FOR THESE YOUNG GIRLS TO BE IN THE SPOTLIGHT?
One batch of pseudo wealthy, formerly adolescent moms are walking off into the sunset (and probably heading on to another reality show, let’s be real) on the final season of Teen Mom, which will premiere on June 12.
In the below trailer, it’s evident this season will be just as dramatic as the ones before. Amber Portwood will have to discuss her rotating court and prison appearances; Catelynn Lowell continues to deal with her dysfunctional mother; Maci Bookout still has feelings for her baby daddy, and Farrah Abraham decides to leave her toxic mother. And also continue to be the worst.
Teen Mom trainwreck Amber Portwood is already back in jail! The 22-year-old was picked up on Thursday for a drug court violation.
According to the Indiana Herald Bulletin, Amber was not fulfilling the obligations of the drug court program while she was recovering from surgery. Amber entered the drug court program February 16th as part of her probation. The court granted her leniency while healing from surgery but apparently Amber’s recuperation was exceeding the time limits deemed acceptable.
Amber’s over-worked attorney Evan Broderick said, “I think things came to light that she could have been doing more.” He wouldn’t say why Amber had surgery, but said it was not serious. Mr. Broderick revealed Amber is in jail for recovery and could be out as early as next week once the court reviews her case. “It’s not uncommon to give a sanction in jail to get them back on track,” Mr Broderick added. She has not been terminated from the drug court program.
Speaking out on her behalf is her mother Tonya Portwood, who blames the court for the mishap. “They got it wrong,” Tonya insists to RadarOnline. “She had surgery, and basically she was on bed rest for a couple of days.”
Good Lord – sometimes I don’t even know what to think about Jenelle Evans. Days after admitting she was giving loser ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp a second (3rd? 5th? 16th?) chance; citing he was a changed man – the Teen Mom 2 star discovered he sold the topless photos of her circulating around the web. Classy.
Even worse – Kieffer is admitting he’s responsible! When Jenelle found out the photos were on the internet she, of course, took to Twitter to vent her frustration and express her sadness. I expect she’ll be ‘taking a break’ from tweeting again in the next day or so as well – isn’t that what she always does when she’s upset? Anyway a furious Jenelle wrote, “Think I’m going to have a nervous breakdown. Can’t stop crying.”
“I’m so upset and depressed. Words can’t describe. Now the whole world can see me naked. I can’t stop crying. I can’t handle this,” she continued. And Jenelle straight up accussed Kieffer of being responsible for the leak! “Delp took without me lookin and told me he deleted them thats why I was laughing in the pic cuz I’m like lol stop. I was f*cked up off of anesthesia after the surgery. I didn’t kno he took the after photos.
I have to admit – this does really suck for Jenelle, who just posed for brand new boob photos with Kieffer – which she undoubtedly got compensated for. I guess ol’ Kieffer just wanted a piece of the pie.
And Kieffer is not shying away from the accusation. “Got racks on racks on racks lmao #no remorse,” he admitted on twitter. “I would have never done it if she didn’t brake my heart then talk sh*t about me for it.”
Oh, Jenelle… I certainly hope you will not get back together with Kieffer next week! In other Jenelle news, after she accused ex-boyfriend Gary Head of abusing her, they’re now back together… Le sigh.
ARE YOU SURPRISED KIEFFER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SELLING THE PHOTOS?
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans recently went under the knife to get a boob job. The star already did her first photo shoot flaunting her new rack in a teeny, hot pink, leopard-print bikini (courtesy of TMZ, of course) – and she has been showing off her new twins on Twitter!
Jenelle advertised that she is now a 34C and is loving her new cleavage. But because this is Jenelle, she is not without scandal. Unfortunately for the 21-year-old, RadarOnline discovered some topless photos of Jenelle pre and post-op. The photos are below! Just how Radar was able to obtain said photos smells of a publicity stunt…
Ugh – after wisely phasing the original Teen Mom out of the line-up following one trainwreck after another from the cast, we could only hope MTV had plans to drop the Teen Mom series completely. No such luck!
RadarOnline is reporting that MTV has started casting for Teen Mom 3 which will follow a whole group of moms from this season’s16 & Pregnant. Although, this time MTV has an agenda to cast more stable girls!
Mackenzie Douthit, a former cheerleader from Oklahoma has a son named Gannon (yes, for real) and she is engaged to baby daddy Josh McGee. “She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.” Wait – they aern’t looking for Jenelle Evans, Jr?
Alexandria Sekella is from Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella. She is memorable because she considered giving her daughter up for adoption but changed her mind. Alexandria also satisfied the crazy daddy drama, as her former fiancé Matt McCann entered rehab last December for drug addiction.
Regardless both girls are said to be thrilled about having their lives documented for our viewing pleasure. “Both of them are excited to be on Teen Mom 3,” the source says. “It’ll be quite a journey. Viewers loved them and can’t wait to see more.”
Well, hopefully they’ll have their lives a little more on track than certain current Teen Moms!
WILL YOU BE WATCHING TEEN MOM 3? ARE MACKENZIE AND ALEXANDRIA GOOD CHOICES FOR THE SHOW?
