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


Maci Bookout, one of the original Teen Mom girls, has started a new blog which is an attempt to help her connect with fans on a more stable platform than Twitter or Facebook.

Maci has had a website for quite a while.  The site, which you can find HERE, has been a place where she shares photos, social media updates, and contact information.  The addition of a blog creates a new reason for fans and followers to go to the website and read about Maci’s parenting struggles, life after MTV, and all sorts of other topics that she is asked about on a daily basis.

Maci’s first blog post, which is titled, “Kids Ask the Darndest Things,” talks about her experience with her son, Bentley, asking questions that she might not completely know how to answer on the spot.  Maci talks candidly about the experiences that she’s had with her son and some of the questions that he’s asked that caught her off guard.

Maci is still (as far as I know) in school studying journalism, and writing a book of her own, so adding blogging to the list of things that she’s juggling doesn’t seem like a big stretch since writing is something she’s obviously passionate about.  While other Teen Mom girls have tried to blog, their attempts haven’t been received very well among fans, and the websites have been shut down or left abandoned for extended periods of time.  Hopefully Maci can bridge the gap between social media and semi-professional writing and have a successful blog of her own.

A handful of the girls who have been featured on 16 & Pregnant or Teen Mom have tried their hand at blogging.  Mackenzie McKee tried to create a fitness blog.  Kailyn tried blogging for a while, but her site was later deleted.  Ashley Salazar took to her blog to discuss her emotional battle with giving her daughter up for adoption.  Sarah Roberts took to tumblr to blog about her daily battle with getting over her child’s father, Blake Thomas.  Amber Portwood has also taken to the web to start the beginning phases of creating a website, but there’s no real news if it will end up being a blog or not.


US Magazine reported today that the original four Teen Mom girls might be coming back to MTV.  Their statement on their website reads:

After MTV successfully aired catch-up specials last month with stars Amber Portwood, 23, Catelynn  Lowell, 22, and Abraham, 22, the network has been wanting to “bring the  series back,” an insider reveals in the Mar. 31 issue of Us Weekly.

Although the March 31st issue isn’t scheduled to hit stands for nearly two weeks, US Magazine is definitely getting gossip spreading by posting this claim.  The source, who hasn’t been named, claims that MTV ran the catch-up specials last month in order to see if there was still a fan base for the original Teen Mom girls.  The catch-up specials broke records, trended on Twitter, and were talked about in several magazines.  It’s pretty obvious that viewers still have things they want to see from the four original Teen Moms.

There’s one catch though.  Apparently some of the girls don’t want Farrah Abraham to be on the show any more.  There are alleged comments from Amber and Maci who claim that they don’t want their children to be on a show with a porn star or a show where sex toys are a part of casual conversation.  This seems like a valid concern, since their children are now old enough to comprehend more of what would really be going on during filming and the production of the show.

US says that MTV is taking the suggestion seriously, and that there’s enough of a fan base for Amber, Catelynn, and Maci, and losing Farrah might not hurt ratings too much.  With the end of Teen Mom 2 coming after this season, do you think that MTV should gear up for a show about the original Teen Mom girls again?

I’m going to use this post as a quick update on some things that probably don’t deserve an entire article to be written about them.

1. Kailyn gets birth control


Mirena is an IUD form of birth control that can help prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years.  It’s been a couple months since Lincoln was born, and she had asked her followers what kind of birth control to get a few weeks ago, so it’s good to know that she’s following through and actually putting herself on something.

2. Maci is writing a book


We’ve heard rumors about a book from Maci, but we hadn’t heard much directly from the source.  At one point, the book was supposed to be titled “Bulletproof” although that was a while ago, and plans may have changed.  One thing’s for sure: Maci’s background with Teen Mom and the insane number of people following her on social media accounts will be sure to gain her book some great publicity when it does get released.

3. Alex and Matt’s court documents get published

According to Teen Mom Truth, Matt hasn’t been paying his child support, so he’s headed back to court with Alex in order to get things figured out.  I’m not sure who gave the documents to this website, but I think it’s seriously wrong, and something that should be kept private.  Alex and Matt are not opposed to bashing each other on twitter, but I don’t think they really realize the repercussions that this might have on their daughter later on in life.

4. Mackenzie’s mom posts pregnancy details


Mackenzie is due to deliver a baby girl in just a few weeks.  She is currently 34 weeks pregnant, and the doctors are hoping that she makes it to 37 weeks.  Mackenzie’s pregnancy is high risk due to her Type 1 Diabetes.  We saw her deliver Gannon 4 weeks early on 16 & Pregnant, and he weighed almost 10 pounds.  The name of Mackenzie’s unborn child is remaining a secret until after she is born.

5. Catelynn posts about being pro-life


Catelynn uploaded the picture above to her Instagram account with the caption “#truedat” and as expected, it started some controversy in the comment section.  Catelynn is known for supporting some controversial issues, but she seems to do it in a way that doesn’t make most people angry most of the time, so I will respect her for that.  Everyone has their own opinions on abortion, homosexuality, and politics, and that’s probably never going to change.

6. Teen Mom 2′s new season starts tomorrow

Be sure to tune in to watch the premier of the season starting at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time.  I’ll be doing recaps of every episode as well, so be sure to share your thoughts and feelings as the season goes on.



Gather - According to a new tweet released on January 13, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is now revealing that she is turning down a live interview opportunity to party instead. “I’m a producer for TMZ Live We’d love to have you Skype into the show. Email me for details. Thx,” a girl named Jessica wrote to Maci. However, it sounds like she does have other plans that night. “Sorry im already scheduled to be ‘partying my face off’ at that time,” she tweeted back.

I don’t know what’s funnier about this article.  The fact that the writer at Gather took Maci’s reply serious, or that Jenelle re-blogged it on Sulia.

Apparently, someone at TMZ had some pretty big balls and sent Maci a tweet asking her to Skype into the show one night. Why does it take big balls to ask Maci that?  It was just days after TMZ posted an article about Maci ‘Partying her face off” in Miami. Giving credit where it’s due, Maci’s reply to TMZ was a good one and basically told them to ‘f off’ in a more pleasant manner.

Someone at Gather missed the TMZ article and took Maci’s reply serious.. real serious. They went on to even act appalled Maci’s mother thought it was funny and retweeted it with a crying laughing face… oh my! Look, I haven’t always been nice to Maci in my posts, but even I try to take a minute or two and fact check what I’m writing. Maci has been known to knock back a drink or three, but as far as I can tell, she’s been responsible about it (unlike her co-star).

If posting it to Gather wasn’t bad enough, you have Jenelle re-posting it so Sulia in order to get some cheap clicks via Facebook and Twitter.  No big deal, only 600k people follow her (Jenelle) on facebook, and another 850k on twitter. It’s all good though, as long as Jenelle is given her money from Sulia, no harm, no foul.. right?  Who cares that Maci is portrayed as a raging alcoholic and her mother is a laughing enabler?  Just toss more money to Jenelle so she can keep posting dumb links.

On a side note – Even if Maci were to pass up an offer from TMZ to go drinking, I don’t blame her. I don’t think she’s actually making a bad career move by ignoring them.



Blind Item - This Teen Mom saw how much money Farrah Abraham made so shot her own porn video Monday.The actor who shot with her says she was wasted but they filmed anyway. The mom controls theproduct so it’s up to her what to do with it. He says there is nothing glamorous about the shoot and that if the public is expecting something nice and sweet then this porn is not for them.

Before people ask, a blind item is a gossip term for a rumor about a very specific event, yet still anonymous to keep people guessing.  Sometimes they’re revealed, sometimes they’re not even true, and sometimes they’re true but we’ll never know who it was.

With that out of the way, I’m going to say, this blind item screams Maci… it screams it. Why? This blind item was referring to Monday, Dec 30th, and it was published right around the same time TMZ posted the story about Maci’s drunken romp through Miami. Another hint is the ‘sweet and nice’ part of the blind item. You can typically find hints dropped inside the rumors, and I believe that’s one of them.  For argument’s sake, let’s break down the candidates anyway…

Farrah – Obviously not. He would have worded it about her making another video.  Odds 1000/1

Amber – Fresh out of jail and ready for publicity?  Possibly, but unlikely. Amber has been busting her ass since her release to prove how much she’s changed, so I doubt she’d jump right into a video where she’s clearly drunk. I just don’t see it.  Odds 50/1

Maci – Like I mentioned above, I don’t see any way this article can’t be referring to her. She has always had a ‘good girl’ image, yet is very well known to knock back a drink (or five). Being in Miami doesn’t help her cause, either.  Like LA, Miami is a hotbed for adult videos, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to hear Maci hook up with an actor down there. It’s not like she has been spending the past week in east bumfuck, TN.  Odds 5/1

Chelsea – This is certainly a dark horse contender. The ‘nice and sweet’ part could certainly be referring to Chelsea, but her lifestyle doesn’t seem to fit this. She isn’t a drunk (that we know of), and doesn’t appear to be an attention whore. I don’t get the vibe where she would be willing to do almost anything for money either, but I have to keep her odds low simply because she is still a candidate. I wouldn’t bet on it, but I’d say:  Odds 40/1

Leah/Kailyn/Catelynn - All three are in very well known relationships, so the cheating aspect would have been mentioned. Shooting with their husband/bf is also unlikely because the guy was called an actor. That said, there is an outside chance it is a ‘couples tape’, but it sounds more of a fling. Odds 500/1

Jenelle – She is currently pregnant, so any normal girl I’d automatically rule out, but this is Jenelle we’re talking about.  We have to keep an open mind because of that, but it’s still very, very unlikely. Odds 750/1

Fake Story/TM3 Girl – There is always the possibility of this being a flat out lie, or a cast member from TM3. It’s also just as likely that this mom won’t let the tape see the light of day now that she’s sober. We may never know who it is because of this, so the odds are pretty good on this.  Odds 10/1

Who do you think it is?



Alright, I think I’m not alone here when I say just stop this foreplay and get back together already, your fans want it.  Maci and Ryan were back together to pose with Bentley wearing his Mario outfit and the picture couldn’t be more perfect.  Seriously, I rarely say this, but those two belong together.  I know Ryan is still young and using his fame to hook up with a bunch of different hot girls, but at some point he’s going to end up back with Maci.. it just has to happen.   If she doesn’t, I will have to.  I think Ryan is one of the few people I’d go gay for!  (too much info?)
