Maci Bookout wants people to know that she's not as big of a party girl as some believe. In an interview with OK! Magazine, posted on Monday, June 16, the young mom, who starred on MTV's "Teen Mom" for four seasons, defended her drinking and going out with friends.
When asked what the biggest misconception about her is, Maci said that it's that she parties too much. She said that people often criticize her when they see her Instagram photos of her partying with friends. She explained that her son, Bentley, stays with his dad, Ryan Edwards, for three days every other weekend. She feels as if on those weekends, when her homework is done, she deserves to go out with her friends for a beer rather than just staying home alone.
People may soon get to watch Maci raising Bentley and partying with her friends on her weekends off. It was reported in early May that there may be a season five to the hit show, which last aired in 2012. A source confirmed that Maci, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood are interested in filming again and are negotiating for the new season. However, their former co-star Farrah Abraham has dropped out of negotiations.
The source said that it wouldn't be surprising if MTV dropped Farrah from negotiations because they don't believe that she's right for the show anymore. This is because Farrah has done a lot more than just drinking and partying with friends. Since leaving the show, two sex tapes starring her and porn star James Deen have been released. She has capitalized on her sex image by releasing a song and music video titled "Blowin'," starting a sex toy line, and writing erotica books.
Farrah Abraham won't be seen on the new season not only because of producers' concerns but also because of objections from the other "Teen Mom" stars. On Tuesday, June 17, Hollywood Life reported that Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood refused to be a part of season five unless Farrah was left out. Farrah had already seemed to confirm her exit when she tweeted to her fans that after sharing her teen mom struggles, she's now excited to be the person she really is.
