Teen Mom 2 Stars Demand More Money, Better Editing From MTV
Ah, contract re-negotiations. Things can get out of hand if both sides are not careful with their approach.
The girls on Teen Mom 2 might have been dumb enough not to use a condom at one point in the lives, but they know how much money they’ve made MTV.
So, like any successful TV star, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer are ready to fight for their worth.
The only problem is that contracts are already in place, and producers are finding all sorts of loopholes to avoid negotiations.
“MTV has locked the girls all down for season 7 so they have been calling the latest filming ‘extra’ or ‘bonus’ footage so they don’t have to negotiate a new contract,” a source told Radar Online.
Naturally, there will be spats here and there about playing favorites, and what should air.
“The girls think that Chelsea is the favorite,” a source told Radar Online.
“It seems like she gets the best edit and they think it is unfair.”
Houska gets the best edits because she is in a really great place in her life. She’s not working through divorce number two or battling substance abuse, nor is she getting herself arrested.
“Jenelle has been filming again,” the source said. “MTV knows her life is so up and down that they want to make sure they get all the details.”
Evans kinda/sorta confirmed her third pregnancy recently, so there will be plenty of useful footage featuring her baby daddy, David Eason and mom, Babs.
Evans is constantly complaining about the way her storyline is edited, but if Andy Cohen has taught us anything about reality TV, the content speaks for itself.
Also filming again? All the dads, be they estranged from their children, fighting with their baby mamas or just plain irritating to watch.
“MTV has all of the dads filming, no matter how much the girls hate them,” the source added.
Remember that time Adam Lind revealed Teen Mom 2 salaries? Hopefully he’ll give an update at some point
