Apparently getting knocked up at the age of 18 can pay – if you’re Bristol Palin.
Palin became a cautionary tale during her mother Sarah Palin’s unsuccessful bid for Vice President in 2008. (Some say her ill-timed teen pregnancy derailed her mom’s campaign, but the then Alaska governor managed to do that well enough on her own.) But now it’s paying off for her – literally – to the tune of $262,000.
According to The Philadelphia Examiner, that’s how much Palin banked in 2009 as spokesperson for The Candie’s Foundation’s teen pregnancy prevention campaign. (She earned about that from her appearance on “Dancing with the Stars,” as well.)
Not too shabby…
Others who have lent their celebrity to the cause include Hayden Panettiere, Beyoncé, Ciara, Jenny McCarthy, Vanessa Minnillo, Ashley Tisdale, Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson, Usher, Rachel Bilson, and Teddy Geiger. No word if any of them received similar pay outs.
