 The former "Dancing With The Stars" contestant became an ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation in 2009 when she was 18 ... just a few months after giving birth to her son, Tripp ... and according to tax documents, the job PAID OFF.
 
The foundation’s website says Bristol "plays an important role by helping other teens understand the incredible challenges teen parents face, and encouraging them to wait until they are socially and financially independent to start their families.”

According to the website, Bristol is still working for the organization.

Another thing...if her son when he's old enough, learns about this, he might think that she regrets him, and that he was a horrible mistake. Guess my point is, that it won't make him feel very good about himself.

The beautiful Bristol deserves so much more. In less than 2 years, she will be the daughter of the first female president of the United States. Triple her salary, people!

What a slap in the face to all the single mothers struggling everyday to put food on the table. I'm so sick of the disparity in this country between the "haves" and the "have-nots."

Wow, so you get knocked up, fake being in love with your boyfriend so your mother can make a run at Vice President, go on Dancing With the Stars even though you're not a star and now make more money that most people will over the next six years for telling others not to get knocked up. Yeah, nothing to see here folks.

This fat and yes ugly ho, needs to keep her legs together. This family is nothing but a bunch of liars that are after $$$. I would not pay or want my kids to listen to her tell how she had sex in her mothers house and make money off it. She is as big a phony as her cheating parents. Runs in the family.

I would like to remind all young people reading this that this young girl got this gig because of who her mother is and nothing more. And unlike the girls on Teen Mom or what ever those dumb shows are called on MTV it isn't that easy and you DO NOT MAKE THAT MUCH MONEY in real life
