Bristol Palin earned a whopping $262,000 for her role as an abstinence ambassador for a non-profit, according to the company's tax forms.
The daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin earned her six-figure salary from speaking engagements for Candie's Foundation in 2009, reveals the AP. Ironically, the foundation only dispersed $35,000 in grants to actual teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics, which means Bristol made seven times what the foundation actually spent.
Bristol became the most famous Palin (aside from her mom, of course) when it was revealed that she was knocked up by then-boyfriend Levi Johnston at the age of 17, when her mom was on the campaign trail. She gave birth to son Tripp in December of 2009.
In addition to her haul from the foundation, Palin also made an undisclosed sum for appearing on Dancing With the Stars last year -- but since Bristol made it to the finals, I think we can safely assume it was a pretty penny.
No wonder the single-mother can afford that five-bedroom Arizona home!
Bristol should also see a nice wad of cash as an advance for her book, Not Afraid of Life, which will hit stores this summer.
