Maci Bookout is fighting back against her party girl reputation.

Although Bookout is known as one of the more responsible of all the "Teen Mom" stars, she's also known as someone who parties hard when her son is with his dad. However, according to Bookout, fans have a distorted view of who she really is.

In a June 17 interview with OK! Magazine, Bookout revealed that the biggest misconception people have of her is "…that I party too much. Everyone on Instagram talks about it, and I’m like, 'Don’t you realize that my son, Bentley, goes to his dad’s [Ryan Edwards] house every other weekend for three days?'"

Currently, Bookout and Edwards are co-parenting their son and have joint custody. So, there are many days out of the month that Bentley isn't with her, and after working, going to school and taking care of Bentley, Bookout deserves to enjoy herself once and a while.

"If my homework is done and Bentley is not with me, I am definitely going to go get a beer — because I deserve it!" she explained.

In the past, Bookout has made headlines for her so-called hard partying, but at the end of the day, she's just a normal 23-year-old, doing her best to juggle all that life has brought her way.
