 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.

What a joke, she gets paid over 200K because she got pregnant by 'practicing' only abstinence. She has no clue what it's like be a teen mother.. she has hired help and is making way more money for nothing than any working mother, married OR single.

@43. You misspelled paid. Since getting paid is what the Conservatives know something about, you should at least learn to spell it.

When will she stop hiding her new baby? She had to be pregnant on DWTS She just kept getting fatter and fatter. Also strong rumors coming from Alaska that she is Trig's mother instead of Sarah. These people are just evil.

For all of you out there bitching and moaning, ask yourself this, "If someone or some company offered me $262K to talk about something that I feel I have some expertise in but would cause others to speak ill of me, would I accept that offer?" If you can truthfully answere that question, "No, I wouldn't.", then feel free to continue bitching and moaning. If not, quit your bitchin'.
