Briana DeJesus: I Have a REAL Job and I Support My Whole Family!

When criticizing reality stars, viewers often fall back on the "get a real job" argument.

This is understandable, as some of the folks who have become obscenely wealthy from living their lives in front of a camera crew appear to do very little in the way of actual work.

Amber Portwood, for example, pulls in a mid-six-figure income despite a lifestyle so indolent that she's adopted the sloth as her "spirit animal."

But not every star in the Teen Mom universe has adopted such a disdainful attitude toward work.

Take Briana DeJesus, for example.

Briana says she has a real job -- and she also claims that putting in long hours week after week is really starting to pay off.

Here's the latest on DeJesus' financial situation -- and why her latest comments have left some fans confused:

1. Every Day She's Hustlin'

Briana is the newest addition to the Teen Mom 2 family, which means she hasn't been raking in MTV paychecks for her entire adult life like the rest of the ladies.

2. Started From the Bottom

Sure, Briana got her start on Teen Mom 3, but the show only lasted for one season, which means there were several years in which she was a single mom without a reality show gig to pay the bills.

3. Cue the Dolly Parton Song

Which means that, like most Americans, Briana had no choice but to start workin' 9 to 5.

4. What a Way to Make a Living

Bri tweets
“I hate when people tell me to get a real job. I have one! I work in corporate America. Regular 9-5 like everyone else. I’ll never forget where I came from," she recently tweeted.

5. What Does She Do?

DeJesus revealed back in 2017 that she works for a travel company, but it wasn't until this week that we learned she STILL works for the same company!

6. Keepin' It Real

DeJesus received widespread praise for her work ethic, with one follower replying, "It's not on the show, and people don't look beyond that. I give you credit for still keeping it."
