What they should do is tell those girls they will pay for their childs college education, not give them big cash. Yes, that’s gross and wrong. She got paid to behave like that…WOW!

and she can’t afford to pay for school??  Riiiighhhtt.  

I’m sure that MTV has to have them maintain their living situations so viewers aren’t questioning their “hardships” regarding money.

@Carpie: I like this idea so much better. It would still be a huge incentive to do the show but it would actually benefit the children.

I don’t watch any of those shows that glorify teen pregnancy. Now this will get out and teens will be like “OH! I can get preggo and call MTV and be a star!”

I don’t really understand the confusion…

These girls work. MTV is making BANK off of them. So why shouldn’t the girls get paid? Now granted, Amber sucks. But that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be compensated for working. Everyone on a reality show gets paid. Whether it’s The Hills (btw LC earned $75,000 per episode) or Jon & Kate Plus 8 or Dancing with the Stars or Jersey Shore (that cast earns $30K per episode).

So yeah it seems silly – but thats the world we live in. As long as we all keep tuning in (and believe me – I do!!) these shows will stay on the air, and therfor these “television personalities” will take in huge amounts of money for letting MTV film their lives. Seems crazy – but it’s the entertainment industry.

I was about to post something about this!  A while ago there was a thread where we all discussed how much they made and there were a million conflicting reports.  It’s crazy they get paid soooo much for that crap and I work my butt off to make a fraction of that.  Ugh.

Here’s what US Weekly said abut Amber’s salary:

When she appeared before Madison County magistrate Steven Clase Tuesday, the Teen Mom star was forced to reveal her income — a whopping $140,000 for a six-month contract with MTV.

I have no problem with them getting paid. I have a problem with MTV making it seem like they are living such a hard life as a teen mom when they are banking. What 16 year old single mom do you know that makes $200k a year?
