 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 is white privilege? If a white minor becomes pregnant before marriage, she gets a quarter million to talk about teenage pregnancy. If a minority minor becomes president, they will call her all kinds of names...prostitute, welfare queen etc.

Would like to know how much money or time either she or her mother actually donote to worthwhile causes they believe in, without pay.

Anyway, hope she uses some of that money to buy herself a chin implant (and perhaps also hire a nutritionist). How can anyone actually gain weight during DWTS?

That being said, I would still rather see her profit than Levi. I'm laughing at how much more financially successful she is, and how disappointed he must be that he didn't have the great sex symbol career I think he planned on.

Kind of reminds me of Jon Gosselin's "star" plans biting the dust while Kate made loads of money on DWTS, book, etc.

Am I the only one getting sick of this kind of stuff?? There are so many pg teens that work minimum wage jobs and depend on WIC to care for babies. UGH~ This is shameful.

She made a mistake as a teen. I think she's doing a good job raising her son and trying to improve her life by getting an education. I don't really understand what good the negativity could do to help a girl in her situation. Perhaps you could direct your anger towards her mother and keep it fair?

The abstinence movement is a lie and anti-woman and Bristol is a hypocrite. Plain family please just go away. Liberals are not scared of you. Democrats are not scared of you. Republicans are turning on you. You are not powerful, you are annoying.

If you wanna stop teen pregnacy with Bristol as a spoke person, just show a picture of Bristol in Heat. No red blooded kid will want to engage that.

Well since her family are millionaires we can assume she donated this money back into the cause she feels sooooo strongly about, right?

Of course she didn't and won't.

I say good for her that she is able to earn money for her son instead of depending on welfare,, etc. Many of you are right that regular teens would not be able to make that kind of money. But we still do live in America and if someone is willing to pay her that kind of money, then good for her. I mean, would you turn it down?

I don't see anything wrong with this, I mean aren't all those trashy unwed mothers on tv making that much money or even more by being single moms, trashy and promiscuos, so Why can't she make a living on advocating for Abstinence??? The Liberal media is so f@@ and people who follow them are worst....
