The Real Reason Briana Complains About Money

Briana DeJesus

It seems that all Bri has done this season of Teen Mom 2 is complain about money. Yep. Episode, after episode, after episode, this momma will not stop talking about how Luis needs to provide for her family. But what's confusing about this is that Bri actually earns a fair amount of money, right? By know, everyone has gotten wind of the fact that the teen moms get paid a total of $300,000 per season of Teen Mom 2. So what gives?

It's not clear what Bri's expenses are (she seems to live in a shitty apartment and drive a not so nice car) but it is true that she's gotten a lot of plastic surgery. Now, the doctor who's operated on her is well known from a publicity stand-point, Dr. Dubrow, so it seems unlikely that he would necessarily charge her the big bucks. Their agreement might be instead that she pubicly discusses the work he did on her.

So what's the real reason that Bri complains so much about money? Simple. She needs to. Teen Mom 2 isn't about Beverly Hills housewives; instead, it's about teen moms who are supposed to be struggling with their lives and making their way in the world as women who got pregnant a little too soon. It just wouldn't work for Bri to be making babies and enjoying it because she's earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in reality.
