Here’s a great way to make money teens — announce your upcoming wedding to the world AND your family on the cover of a weekly magazine! Oh, and make sure it’s with someone your parents don’t approve of!

It looks like it was not just love that gave Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston the strength to announce their engagement to the world on the cover of US Weekly, it was also the $100,000 the couple were paid. That’ll buy you a lot of hunting gear! Page Six reports, Our sources estimate Us Weekly paid $100,000 to Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston for the story on their engagement. The cash not only bought an exclusive interview with the couple, but also screwed competitor People. The single mom gave interviews to both magazines, but didn’t tell People about the engagement or that they’d hidden their reconciliation from Sarah Palin.”

Mom Sarah Palin, while surely surprised, should in some way be proud to know she is not the only member of her family taking money for something no one really wants to read about!

Oh, and Bristol is also learning how to become a great liar! Well, except she got caught. She told People that same week of her and Levi, “We’re not totally back together, but I’m not ruling it out . . . I don’t want to get into what’s in store for our future because, who knows?” Just displaying some more of that amazingly aspirational, family values lifestyle of hers!

What do you think about Bristol’s big payday and lying to People?
