A new report by Life & Style magazine is now blowing the lid off just how much MTV is paying its Teen Mom stars.
The reality show, which has now become a mega hit for the network, averaged millions of viewers per episode for it’s second season. A series insider tells Life & Style magazine exclusively that the “stars earn $60,000 to $65,000 per season.” Not too shabby for some teens who’s claim to fame was getting knocked up, though their Jersey Shore counterparts did earn over $300,000 each for their upcoming 3rd season.
And while the Teen Mom stars are earning way more than most of their peers, it seems Amber Portwood and on and off again boyfriend Gary Shirley are not good savers. Gary’s best friend, Jordan Sanchez, tells Life & Style that “Gary says he’s broke.” Adding that “the money is the only reason he’s willing to do the show. You can’t walk away from money like that.”
As we have reported, MTV has already began filming the third season of the hit show.
In other Teen Mom news, Maci Bookout is now shutting down the reports that she is getting her own spin-off show with fellow teen mom Bristol Palin. Maci tells the HollywoodLife blog that the story is false and that the two have no plans for a reality show in the future.
As for the status of her relationship with boyfriend Kyle King, she says, “It’s not getting more serious. We are just chilling out, trying not to rush anything and just enjoying our time together.”
