Teen Mom Bios: Maci | Farrah | Catelynn | Amber | Leah | Chelsea | Kailyn | Jenelle Teen Mom Junkies

We received an email a few days ago from a guy telling us about this thing called Celebrity Auction Doctors, where celebrities auction off some of their things in order to raise money for charity.  It looks like Maci Bookout has decided to take part in the celebrity auction along with David Otunga and Joshua Ledet.

Basically, the celebrity picks a few things that they could auction off, and the organization uses eBay Giving Works in order to get bids on the items.  When the items are sold, the profit goes to the celebrity’s charity of choice.  Maci has chosen to donate to March of Dimes. Maci is reportedly auctioning off a personal phone call with a fan, a pair of her Converse shoes, and some drawings that Bentley made.

Currently, all of Maci’s items have reached a price of $255 on eBay, and if you want to check them out for yourself, you can do that HERE.

Before this, I had never heard of Celebrity Auction Doctors, but I think it’s nice to be able to have celebrities do something with all of their stuff.  Selling a pair of shoes or some pictures isn’t a huge deal, but I’m glad that Maci is putting her earnings towards a good charity. The video above is a preview for the full Celebrity Auction Doctors show, but if you’d like to watch the entire 18 minute episode, you can check it out HERE.

Us Weekly gained access to some exclusive details about the return of Teen Mom, and when we can expect to see the original moms back on our screens.

The article claims that the three girls who will be shown on the return of the season (Maci, Catelynn, and Amber) have changed tremendously since we saw them on their final season 2 years ago, and that they’re all at different points in their lives, which will be good for viewers to see.

Maci has been in a relationship with boyfriend Taylor for around two years now, and the two decided to take the next step and move in together just last month.  Maci is excited to introduce viewers to Taylor, and she’s also excited to show people how much Bentley has grown.  She told Us Weekly that “I feel like I have grown up so much since the last time that I filmed anything for TV, so it will be very interesting to show viewers how our lives have evolved.”

Amber was Teen Mom’s notorious bad girl, but since a 17 month long prison sentence, it seems she’s turned her life around and is doing the best that she can to be a better mom to her now 5 year old daughter, Leah.  Amber is also in the process of writing a tell-all book called “Never Too Late” which is set to debut on August 26th.  Amber says she’s currently enrolled in college after obtaining her GED in prison, but doesn’t know what she wants her major to be at the moment.

Catelynn and Tyler struggled with placing their child up for adoption when we first met them, and now we’re going to be able to see them become parents again when they welcome their second child this winter.  Catelynn is currently almost half way through her pregnancy, and fans are anxious to see how having a child of their own will either help or harm their healing process.

While there isn’t a set air date for the return of Teen Mom, Us Weekly did say that it would happen sometime in 2015.  We can assume it’ll probably be spring because they’ll try to capture as much of Catelynn’s pregnancy and first bit of parenting as possible.

The cast has taken to Twitter to share the news, and they seem pretty excited about making a return to MTV.  Here are some of the messages that they shared with followers.

Farrah hasn’t commented on not being a part of the return of Teen Mom, although I’m sure we’ll hear something from her at some point in the next few weeks.

Are you excited that Teen Mom is coming back, or do you think the show has run its course?  Share your opinions below!

Teen Mom, Maci Bookout, hasn’t tried to hide her extravagant lifestyle from fans of the show.  She’s moved into a nice home, thrown countless parties, and traveled the country more than most people could dream of.  We’ve heard rumors that Maci paid rent for her other house members, and has flown her friends and family on vacations multiple times. Sadly, it turns out that Maci has made some other serious mistakes with her finances, because an InTouch Weekly report is claiming that she owes the IRS nearly $80,000 from taxes in 2011.  InTouch had a copy of an exclusive tax document, along with comments from a source close to Maci that shed light on this topic.

maci-book-out-tax-lienconv-jpg-d

The copy of the document above, which is obviously from InTouch, shows that Maci owes $78308.63 from the 2011 tax period.  During this time, Teen Mom would have still been going strong, and MTV fails to take taxes out of their paychecks to their reality television stars, since they are paid as independent contractors and not actual workers.  If you remember, Kailyn complained about moving her wedding date back because she and Javi were needing to pay thousands of dollars worth of taxes last year, which would be a similar situation.

InTouch also claimed that Maci is currently unemployed, but is making a living through sponsored tweets on her Twitter account.  If you follow her, you’ll notice that she is routinely sending out links to her 1.2 million followers, and she will receive a small amount of money for everyone that she sends to the websites she’s supporting.  Maci also has speaking engagements from time to time, although since the end of Teen Mom, her speaking career seems to be dwindling.

The source also claimed that Maci is in denial about the debt, and that she really has gotten herself in a lot of trouble.  The source stated that Maci says she has been trying to pay it back, but that there’s almost no progress being made on the debt.

Maci hasn’t publically commented on this issue at the moment, but she has continued to share sponsored tweets and let her followers know that she could use a beer.

I know I was gone for a week, and now I’m back to catch you up on things that happened during the last few days while I wasn’t around to write about them.

1. The “Life After Labor” finale was filmed

life after labor

The 12 girls from the 5th season of 16 & Pregnant all met up for the first time in New York City to film their reunion show which will air at the end of the season.  The girls seemed to all get along really well, and several of them posted pictures to their social media accounts which showed them getting to know the other girls from their season.  This was a good experience for all of them, and they seem to love their 16 & Pregnant family.  The reunion is bound to be exciting to watch, and I’m anxious to see how big all of the babies have gotten.

During their time in New York City, the girls took some time to sightsee, do publicity arrangements, and film for nearly 10 hours during the finale.  MTV equipped each girl with her own dressing room, and the babies had a huge play area where they were entertained while their moms and dads were being interviewed by Dr. Drew.

The last season of 16 & Pregnant also had 12 girls, and 4 of them were cut from the reunion special, and their segments were only shown on MTV’s website.  I’m wondering if this will happen again this year, or if MTV decided to make this a longer special to ensure that everyone’s segments are shown.

2. Maci Bookout’s boyfriend is moving to Tennessee

Maci has been dating a guy named Taylor for almost 2 years now, and she recently shared some news on Twitter that he would be moving to Tennessee to be closer to Maci and Bentley.  This is a pretty big step for a couple, and it’s bound to cause some changes in their relationship.  No word yet on whether Taylor is moving in with Maci, or if he’ll find a place of his own, but I’m sure we’ll be finding out more about this situation in the near future.

3. Allie Mendoza asks for handouts

Allie was the finale episode of 16 & Pregnant’s third season, and she’s remained pretty quiet since she stopped filming.  Her son, Aydenn, is now 3 years old, and she has a boyfriend named Chris.  The two currently live with Chris’ parents, but they’re looking to find a place of their own in order to obtain a sense of independence.  Allie took to social media accounts to share a GoFundMe page that she created to get donations to help her afford a place to live.  She wrote:

Hi everyone. It’s about that time where my family needs to become completely wholesome. We are trying to raise money so we can finally have our own cozy little home. No, we are not trying to mooch off of anyone, just asking for your blessings so we can continue our family and have the best for ourself. Thank you everyone!

To me, this is looking for a handout from some people who watched a show 3 years ago, which isn’t something that I would do if I was in her position.  One positive thing about Allie is that she is working full time at a day care center where she was recognized as an exceptional teacher, and she has continued to take some college classes through Kaplan and even made the honor roll during her first semester.

4. Danielle Cunningham admits to having Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Danielle, who was also featured on season 3 of 16 & Pregnant, has shared her weight loss with fans through her Twitter account, and posted the picture above last week with the caption that she had lost 90 pounds.  She’s been swearing by the Body by Vi shakes, and even sells them to make a little extra money, but a recent report from Starcasm showed that it might be more than the shakes that are causing her to lose weight.  Danielle admitted to Starcasm that she has Body Dysmorphic Disorder, which causes her to constantly obsess about her body.  She said that it was worst when she was pregnant with her second child, and that even though she’s smaller than she was in high school, she’s still dealing with the negative thoughts that come along with BDD.  Danielle also admitted that she’s seeing a counselor to help her out, and hopes that she can get herself back to normal soon.

A couple of months ago, rumors were swirling that MTV was planning to bring back the original Teen Mom girls for a 5th season of their show.  Although none of the cast members have ever actually spilled the beans on this information, a new report from US Weekly says that three of the four original Teen Mom girls are negotiating contracts with MTV.

If you look at where these girls are in their lives at the moments, you’ll see that some of them would have potentially interesting story lines to share.  Amber was just released from prison in November 2013, and she seems to be adjusting to life pretty well, but I am sure that the struggles she faces on a day to day basis are still there.  Addiction is a terrible thing, and even though I’m proud of Amber’s accomplishments so far, I still don’t think it would take much for her to spiral back to that place again.

Catelynn and Tyler just announced that they’re trying to have a baby, and it would be interesting to see if they ever actually get married, how they parent a newborn, and their confliction with keeping this second child, but giving their first daughter up for adoption.  Of course, we would love our updates on Butch and April too.

Maci’s life hasn’t seemed to change that much, except for the fact that she’s in a pretty serious relationship, and that she’s been ousted as more of a partier than we ever really caught a glimpse of during her Teen Mom days.

That leaves Farrah.  We all know what Farrah’s been up to (or what’s been up Farrah) since filming ended, and the new reports from US Weekly are saying that she’s the girl who isn’t going to be getting her contract renewed.  Apparently the network thought that Farrah set a bad example and didn’t represent MTV well. This would mean that Teen Mom would continue without Farrah.  Farrah hasn’t directly commented on this report, but she happened to share a Tweet with her followers about her time on reality television that is leading a lot of people to think that these rumors are true.  Farrah said:

farrah tweet

MTV had a lot of success when they brought back the Teen Mom girls for their hour-long specials several months ago, and Being Catelynn, Being Amber, and Being Farrah all were trending on social media accounts.  It’s pretty obvious that there’s still a big fan base for these girls, and they are still receiving offers to speak at colleges and appear on talk shows.

1. Is Mackenzie McKee pregnant again?

mackenzie1

Teen Mom 3 star, Mackenzie McKee caused an uproar on Twitter when she shared the following message with her followers a couple of days ago.

mackenzie2

Most people took this as a backwards pregnancy announcement, and started asking Mackenzie when she was due or scolding her for being foolish enough to think that breast feeding made you completely unable to get pregnant.  Mackenzie just gave birth to her daughter, Jaxie Taylor, in February, and has proclaimed that she’s a brittle diabetic.  If Mackenzie is really pregnant again, she’s going to be in for a crazy adventure.  I couldn’t imagine having kids that close together, all the while still being a teenager.

Mackenzie did take to Twitter to respond to a fan saying that she isn’t expecting her third child, but what I’m more concerned about is the fact that this girl obviously still hasn’t figured out methods of birth control.  I wouldn’t put it past her to rely solely on breast feeding, and end up pregnant again within the next year.

2. Kailyn’s book is released

Kailyn_Lowry_Pride_Over_Pity_book_cover

I bought it for my Kindle this morning, and it’s full of information that I really wasn’t expecting.  Between living in a homeless shelter, her relationship with Jo and other previous boyfriends, marriage issues, and the whole rape and abortion scandal that I posted about earlier, it’s really kind of heart breaking to read.  I’m not finished with the book yet, but I’ll be posting a review for everyone within the next few days.  I know there are mixed feelings about the content of the book, so I’ll try to remain as unbiased as I can throughout it.  Are any of you reading it too?  Let me know what you think!

3. Maci’s newest blog post is about labor and delivery

maci-bookout-teen-mom-twitter

Maci’s been on this kick of writing blog posts about some topics that interest her.  This one focuses around the fact that since she’s getting older, lot of her friends are getting engaged or are pregnant.  Apparently when they end up pregnant, they ask her for advice on what to expect since she already has a kid and has gone through labor and delivery and all that fun stuff once already.  Maci writes about how she was only 16 when she had a kid, so she probably wasn’t the most prepared for any of it.  She also writes about  how the baby isn’t the only one wearing diapers after delivery, and the moment you find out what your boobs are for.  This was probably my least favorite blog post that she’s written, but feel free to check it out here!
