How Much Is Briana DeJesus Getting Paid for ‘Teen Mom 2?’
But more confused about the whole thing are the original Teen Mom 2 girls, who are reportedly more upset than ever about what their new co-star is getting paid to join the show.
Jenelle, for one, even refused to talk about Bri.
“I’m not commenting on it at all,” she told The Dirrty.
“MTV wanted me to film about it and I even told them no. Same with the rest of the girls.”
And a new report claims they were even more upset once they found out how much she'd be getting paid!
According to The Ashley, who broke the Briana news in the first place, the Florida mom will be earning around $20K for her role on the show.
Though that's a nice sum of money, it's nothing compared to what the other four girls make. As Wetpaint has reported, at this point they're making up to $300K per season each.
Apparently MTV considered giving the same amount to Bri, before they realized that was kinda unfair.
So, how did MTV settle on $20K for Briana?
It turns out that's the sum of money the girls earned in Season 2 of the series, and since Briana has already appeared on the sole season of Teen Mom 3, this is technically her second season with the franchise. Makes sense!
In addition to Kenzie, Nova's mama was also up against her 16 & Pregnant Season 4 co-star Lindsey Harrison, who
The Ashley claims didn't get cast because she doesn't have enough drama going on to make an interesting enough storyline.
We guess getting a gigantic boob job doesn't count as drama?
Bri, however, will certainly up the drama, between her current second pregnancy with an unknown father, her tumultuous relationship with her single mom and her sister, Brittany, who had an abortion in high school.
And of course, there's her baby daddy drama.
There's no air date yet for TM2 Season 8, as they just started filming, but stay tuned to Wetpaint as we learn more!
