'Teen Mom 2' Stars Leah, Kailyn & Jenelle Are Desperate For Money!

While their names and faces are recognized in the media, these teen mommies are ready and eager to rake in the dough — whether it’s for the good of their kids or not!

It seems like the MTV reality show has made these Teen Moms money-crazy! Leah Messer, Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans are all looking to strike while the iron’s hot and bring home the money. And they each have their own idea on how to cash in. Spin-offs anyone?

Leah, 20, whose marriage to Corey Simms might be on the rocks, wants to make sure she can provide for her 14-month-old twin daughters Aleeah and Aliannah. She is currently combining her Teen Mom income with the little money she makes at her part-time dental assistant job and she’s struggling to keep her family afloat. (Also figure in baby Ali’s medical bills). Her plan to make money once the show ends? A spin-off series!

“Leah pitched a spin-off show about her life as a mature mom and wife,” a family friend tells In Touch. “She knows it’s the best way to provide for her family.”

Kailyn, 19, on the other hand is contemplating writing a self-help book in order to make some extra cash. Without her mom or ex Jo Rivera and his family’s help, Kailyn has to provide for herself and 14-month-old Isaac on a $7.25 an hour salary. (Plus her Teen Mom money). She “wants to write an advice book to help young girls who struggled like she did,” a source tells In Touch.

Lastly, Jenelle, 19, who is trying to leave her wild ways behind so that she can regain custody of her 1-year-old son Jace, from her mother Barbara, is confident that “MTV will hire her as a film editor when the show is over.” And she better hope so! Jenelle just blew $16,000 on a new Volkswagen Jetta and drops her paychecks on designer clothes.

So, would you like to see these three girls fulfill any of these money-making dreams?

Kailyn has had multiple jobs. I believe she still has two jobs and is going to school.

Leah has a job but only works one day a week. :/

Jenelle is the one without a job.

leah seems to be a good mother in front of the cameras,kailyn acts like a good mother in front of cameras too even though shes a slut(my opinion), chelsea seems more down to earth, i dont get a fake vibe from her,but she needs to open her eyes and leave adam whos a man whore. janelle is just going thru problems because of her mother always nagging her, i would be smoking weed too, to manage my anxiety and depression give the girl a break.

Leah- is my favorite! she is taking care of her twins! i broke down crying when she told Corey that she would be there for ali and that she would do anything for her if she couldnt walk and that she is her mother and thats never going to change thats how a mother should act!

Kailyn- is my other favorite! she is putting her son first and i think she is smart to get everything in writing! and of all the people out there who thinks she shouldnt date Jorden! look at her she works two jobs goes to college and she has to put up with Joe! she desevers to be happy after what shes been through!

Chelsea- she let adam back into the house i wanted to slap her! i thought the fact that she wont let adam see aubree until he pays child support good! keep it up! aubree is so cute! adam you call urself her father when your a huge asshole to her and her mother! she was so talking normal when she called you! you were yelling! and calling aubree a mistake you arent a father! you may have made aubree but you arent a father! sell your fourwheelers and pay some child support! he and Jenelle would be perfect for each other!

Jenelle- you are work! you steal your mother cc and yet you think its ok! you have no job! your son Jace doesnt know you as a mother! he knows you and everything but he knows you as someone who will leave when times get tough! your mother isnt helping yelling at you and you arent helping yelling back! really grow up they both of you! im sorry but i sometimes think Jace is better away from the yelling and crap! just wait one day Jace is going to go up to your mom his grandmother and say hi mom and its going to break ur heart! you say all these things that you are going to do for Jace well stop saying these things and start doing them or are you spending it all on ur boyfriend and your drug problem! stop being a child and start acting like a mother! grow up jenelle or your really going to lose your kid!

If i had a chane i would so want to meet Leah and Kailyn all the way! i have twins so i know what Leah is going through and the father of my twins is a huge asshole like Joe so i know how that feels like! Leah and Kailyn you guys are amazing! you guys are my favorites! good luck with the twins Leah and good luck with iassc Kailyn!

I enjoy watching teen mom 2 every week. Plus I watch the show again 2 days later cause I might have missed something the first time. I also have my daughter watch the show to. I was wondering how Maci,Amber and Farrah are doing?I can’t believe Leah is two timing? Not sure if I believe that. Thank You

i mean these girls are about 1/2 as popular than the first teen moms, i mean its like doing a remake of a movie, they never do as good in the box offices. they dont need to depend on the show alone to make them money!

What a joke. These girls had a chance to have there 15 minutes of fame and put money away for there kids, instead then ran around being the immature teenagers that they are. Now look what happened, there money is gone and they are running in circles looking for more ways to line there pockets. How about go into the real world and get a job. I became a father when I was 20 and today at 25 im a single dad who has his son 24/7. If I would have had the chance they did I would have money away for my son and things would be easier instead of struggling like most of the young parents in the US who aren’t fortunate enough to have the extra support. You blew it, get over it, get a real job AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS!!!

Chelsey’s the only smart one?!? WTF have you been smoking? She is dumb as a box of rocks!! Her child’s father cursed her out & told her that he wanted nothing to do with her or “that mistake” as he referred to their child. She had her dad pay for a lawyer so that she could gain full custody. Even after all of that, her stupid a$% still allowed him to come back. She is so dumb that she allowed him to run her BF out of their apartment and totally destroyed their relationship. Then she allowed him to live with her rent free!! Please tell me again how she’s the smart one because I REALLY REALLY do not understand!

Chelsea’s dad should have grown a pair when Adam mopved into that house!! I would have kicked ALL of them out if it had been me. Chelsea is a freeloader also, and can’t even get her GED!! She’s really using her dad!!

Jenelle should NEVER have custody of Jace. She’s proven to the world that he is not her first concern. Her mother should be given full, permanent custody of that little boy. Jenelle’s attitude and lack of responsibility are infuriating. Barbara should have had her locked up for stealing her credit cards. What a brat!

Been Their… It is been THERE…
Some of you are so cruel. These girls have it rough. I feel for Kailyn and all of you are talking so horrible about her. First of all, Joe is an asshole. I cannot put it any other way. His mother should be ashamed at how she raised her son. He is abusive and rude. Issac is much better off being raised by Kailyn, by herself, than continuing the cycle.

WOW! seriously! It’s putting memories in teens heads now that if they go on MTV they can make some money.. and I don’t feel sorry for Jenelle. Why buy a $16,000 car when that money can go towards getting stuff for Jace and an apartment. I would of bought a used car for under that much. And who needs designer clothes? I get what Leah and Kailyn are doing, but Jenelle just doesn’t think.I’m not too sure if I would read Kailyn’s book though. Good Luck!

Goodlooking? Really?! He’s repulsive. Ugly from the inside out. He treated that poor girl like dirt under his feet. I’m glad that she’s moved on.

I don’t believe Leah is interested in a spin off. I think she is more interested in making her marriage work and her daughter’s health.

Kailyn is a skank – and Jo should be paying child support, his family isn’t hurting.

Jenelle has no brain – and it will be years before she is ever worthy of custody of her son.

Kailyn is blessed to be away from Jo. He’s a major jerk. I felt sorry for her the whole time she was living with his family. Jo treated her like dirt during her pregnancy – he kept trying to get rid her. His parents had to intervene constantly because he was so mean to her. Then, when she finally started getting her life on track with a job and college, he had the nerve to act jealous. He didn’t want her. His family was nice to allow her to live with them, but they only did it for the baby. And I’m sorry, but Jo is UGLY inside and out. He should have considered himself lucky to have Kailyn.

Maddy, you nailed it!! Ashley, you’re missing the whole point. It’s NOT OK for these teens to get knocked up and then rewarded for it. How many other teen moms DON’T get picked to go on MTV and get money? The money MTV gives them should be placed in a trust fund in the CHILD’S name so the CHILD has money when s/he turns legal age. A much better option would be baby care items instead of money. At least the BABY would have things to aid in its care. Diapers,food, and other necessities are EXPENSIVE!! Furthermore, the babies should have been given up for adoption. Kids have no business having kids.

Just because they are born to a young parent doesn’t mean they should have been adopted by someone else. Because you are young doesn’t mean you are not capable of taking care of your child.
