It’s been reported that the latest batch of Teen Moms are cash-strapped and struggling to find work! But we’ve got the dish on Leah’s new part-time job. So MTV must be giving her big bucks!

It’s official: Leah Messer, the 20-year-old mom of twins Aleeah and Aliannah, IS working to help pay for all those Pampers and pacifiers! But a source close to the Teen Mom 2 star tells HollyBaby.com that Leah only works one six-hour shift a week at a dental office in Elkview, West Va. And it happens to be the same exact place her own mom works, too! Coincidence? Perhaps — or maybe Grandma Messer pulled some strings to help her land this new dental-assistant gig.

We’re not sure how much Leah’s hubbie, Corey Simms, is pitching in to help out. But it’s been reported that their relationship is on a rocky road these days. And with baby Ali’s medical bills adding up, maybe Leah’s picking up an extra shift to cover all the costs?

The moola she’s getting from MTV for the show is probably helping out a lot, too. And the upside to only working one day a week –more time for Leah to spend with her adorable babies!
