Highest paid stars of the MTV reality series 'Teen Mom'

While the majority of the 'Teen Mom' franchise stars have been able to use their initial fame and exposure to build profitable brands and businesses, things certainly didn't start out that way. Starting out on shows like '16 and Pregnant' can be one of the most overwhelmingly terrifying things for young women and their families to have to deal with. However, years later, these young teens have grown into successful women, and things have certainly paid off.

Maci Bookout

While certainly not the highest paid 'Teen Mom' on this list (originally compiled by Wet Paint), Maci Bookout has certainly found an abundance of riches in multiple aspects of her life -- recently welcoming her third child -- and posing for a touching engagement photo set with boyfriend and father of Maverick Reed McKinney, Taylor.While her total net worth is only estimated at $10,000, Maci Bookout is a best-selling author, the owner of a recently purchased home, and the owner/operator of her own social media company.

Amber Portwood

The 'Teen Mom' and Indiana native penned a memoir, 'Never Too Late,' along with going on a joint book tour in support of said memoir with fellow cast mate Kailyn Lowry (who is currently estranged from, and on the rocks with Javi Marroquin). Portwood's net worth mirrors that of Maci Bookout, at around $10,000.

Catelynn Lowell

While Tyler Baltierra was recently in the hot seat for fat-shaming his newlywed wife, it seems that things are currently on the upswing for the couple.

Catelynn Lowell has spent a good chunk of her time recently as a stay-at-home mom, along with releasing a memoir of her own, "Conquering Chaos." The couple also pull in income through participating in speaking engagements covering topics like adoption. While sporting a modest net worth of around $20,000, this 'Teen Mom' couple have the added benefit of owning their own home, and not having to pay any child support, as the pair hold the distinction of being the only couple that are still together.
