The ‘Teen Mom’ stars are usually well-compensated for their on-screen efforts but sometimes even they need help.
‘Teen Mom’ girls a decade back
When MTV held casting for their first-ever series, ’16 & Pregnant’, they selected girls based on their real-life stories, and those that made it usually had drama involved.
That’s not to say that the drama is key when being selected for reality TV, but it is heavily desired from the perspective of producers.
The girls that made it on the show had their fair share of drama. They weren’t compensated to the tune of thousands of dollars per episode like they do today, but they were still happy to be doing something with their lives.
Ex ‘Teen Mom’ girl asks for money
Many fans remember Nikkole Paulun from her time on ’16 & Pregnant’ and many follow her on Instagram
Just recently, the ex ‘Teen Mom’ star used the online platform to call for help (financial).
The mom asked fans for donations as she was being summoned to court by her ex-boyfriend, over her daughter’s custody.
Nikkole stated that she didn’t expect much from the donations but fans ended up donating over $3k for the cause.
Some of the fans slammed Nikkole for ‘using’ the money for the vacation but she fired back.
“Oh we already had this trip planned before we asked for your money,” one fan said.
“Is anyone surprised?” another chimed in.
Paulun revealed that the vacation was presented to her as a part of an influencer deal, she didn’t pay a dime for it.
