One of the cool things about being on Teen Mom is that you make a lot of money.
Like, a lot.
The moms and the original dads make hundreds of thousands of dollars per season, if you can even believe it, and they also get to travel for free if MTV is filming, which is pretty neat since we’ve been seeing a lot more vacations on the show recently.
But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places.
“Like where?” you may be wondering.
Well, wonder no further …
As we’ve said, the original cast members — the moms and the dads of their first children — all make the same amount, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 to $400,000 a season. But what else does everyone do?
2. Amber Portwood
Let’s start with reviewing Amber’s side hustles — this will be the easiest to do, because she really doesn’t have any.
3. Not Much
She shares articles on her Instagram page, which brings in some money, and she did appear on that one season of Marriage Boot Camp a couple of years ago, so that’s something.
4. A Quick Hobby
For a little while there, she got into flipping houses with Matt Baier, but she hasn’t done that since he’s been gone.
5. Forever Haute
She did have that sketchy clothing company for a little while, Forever Haute, but she hasn’t talked about it in a very long time, and the brand’s Facebook page hasn’t been updated for a year and a half, so it’s probably safe to say that that’s done.
6. Well …
Right now, she’s facing years in prison after assaulting Andrew Glennon, so she’s probably not thinking so much about her next business venture, you know?
