What You Should Really Learn From Teen Mom

catelynn lowell

I know a lot of people watch Teen Mom and learn a lot of things, for example:

  • Having a baby at 16 gives you a chance at being famous and making decent money
  • Jenelle's mother is always keeping an eye out for Kiefffahhhh
  • You have to struggle to pay rent but can plop down $5k+ on a boob job
  • Smoking weed is apparently the most addicting thing in the world
  • Your hair can magically change color and length 5 times in one day
  • Friends always just stop what they're doing and start asking you personal question after personal question

Who Is The Most Popular Teen Mom?

Well, it's Super Bowl weekend (go Patriots!), and what better way to celebrate it than having our own competition. I was bored, so I wanted to tally up some numbers and find out just who is the most popular Teen Mom out there. Of course, those in the Teen Mom 2 cast will have a harder chance because the show is newer and the original cast is very well know, but you'll be surprised by some of the results.

Maci Bookout Says She Isn't Rich - Doesn't Define "Rich"

Gather - Teen Mom Maci Bookout says she's not getting rich off her reality show gig. It seems that cast is constantly being called out for struggling with money, and fans want to know why. If they have a reality TV show, shouldn't they have plenty of dough?

No, according to Maci. The Teen Mom appeared at a college campus this week to speak about her struggles as a young mother and clear up a few rumors about her finances. "I still go to community college. I still go to Wal-Mart. I'm still a normal person that lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee," Bookout stated.

So, how much do Maci Bookout and the other girls make from the hit show? "I'm not really supposed to talk about it," she said. "I still have the normal struggles, like I have to budget and pay my bills." However, she did say that "nobody works for free."

Fans need to chill out. It's nobody's business how much money Maci Bookout or any of the other Teen Mom stars make. People watch them because they like the drama, think the babies are adorable, and relate to their lives as young moms.

More Teen Moms Support NOH8

Catelynn, Kailyn, and Maci were in L.A. recently to shoot for that hack Dr. Dre, or is it Dr. Drew.. whatever, he bores me. In the meantime, they went out and took more photos for a good cause called NOH8. If you aren't aware. NOH8's mission is to promote gender, marriage, and human equality, which is definitely something I can get behind. It's a good cause, and generally the photos are very well done.

Maci, Catelynn, and Kailyn Shooting For Dr. Drew Show

I always get a little tingly feeling when I see people from different shows together. Maybe it dates back to seeing George Jetson hanging out with Fred Flintstone in my first "mind blown" moment of watching tv as a kid (I know, I'm old). Sure, Teen Mom 1 and 2 are basically the same show, but for me it's weird enough seeing the girls from the same show hanging out together, let alone different shows.

It appears within 2-3 years, we'll have a clothing line for every cast member of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. Last week, Kailyn's son(!) launched a clothing line which officially means he's had a more productive life in his near 2 years on the planet than I've had in all my years combined. Now, it looks like the train is still rolling as Kyle has decided to launch his own clothing line, and is currently seeking a name for it on his facebook fan page. Currently he's down to koldnature or vying and you have the chance to make history and help him decide which one sounds better.
