The ladies of "Teen Mom" have recently come under the spotlight as their salaries have just been revealed. Not only were the star’s yearly salaries released but the amount of money they make per episode has also been revealed as well. It is worth mentioning, as well, that it wasn’t only the mothers of the show that earned a hefty paycheck but also other castmates as well such as the fathers of the babies. The stars of "Teen Mom" don’t only get paid for episodes in the season, they also get paid bonuses for any specials that the series runs.

How much money are the cast members of this controversial series making?

Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood, Ryan Edwards, Gary Shirley and Tyler Baltierra make a whopping $25,000 per episode of "Teen Mom". Now, before you even attempt to do the calculations to work out how much they get per season, I’ve already got that figured out. In the sixth season of "Teen Mom", there was a total of twenty-seven episodes alongside twenty-six specials. With the cast apparently earning an extra $1,000 dollars per special that means that those six stars all earned roughly $701,000 for the whole sixth season of the series.

That was not all of the salaries that were revealed. Apparently, Matt Baier makes anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 an episode for "Teen Mom".

While Chelsea Houska apparently earned $250,000 for the show’s sixth season. Other “Teen Mom” stars such as Janelle Evans, Leah Messer, and Kailyn Lowry all make over $300,000 per each season of the show.

What have the cast of this unique show been up to?

The cast of "Teen Mom" never seems to be out of the news, and it is always for all of the wrong reasons.

For example, Abraham recently got criticized online after she made fun of Baltierra regarding rumors about his sexuality. This led "Teen Mom" fans to defend him against Abraham’s attack. For example, one of them said: “The wicked witch continues to talk about you guys as if she’s still in high school.” Abraham's comment didn't seem to bother Baltierra at all as he responded on Twitter to her cyberbullying attack, saying, "In order for her to really insult me, I would first need to value her opinion." But one fan responded with harsher words saying, "They have such a volatile relationship that child doesn't need to be around either one of those crazies."

If you want to catch up with these people, you can watch “Teen Mom”, and you can also follow all of them on their social media accounts. Moral of this story? You should never bully anyone online, even if you are a star of "Teen Mom."
