Will 'DWTS' Make 'Teen Mom' Maci Bookout a Star?

Sasha Brown-Worsham

Maci Bookout, the star of MTV's Teen Mom, wants to follow in Bristol Palin's famous footsteps as the second teenage mother to grace the Dancing With the Stars stage. Sources close to the reality star say it has been a goal of hers to be on the show for a while. 

Bookout, who is mom to Bentley, 2, has already visited the show as a guest of season 11 semi-finalist Bristol Palin.

A source told Us Weekly that her people are pushing hard for it:

They're friendly, so Maci was able to come a few times and sit in the audience. She is a huge fan!

DWTS is one of those shows that brings people out of the woodwork. There are stars you see you haven't seen in years -- Florence Henderson, Pamela Anderson, Ralph Macchio -- and then there are wannabes, think Jake Pavelka, Melissa Rycroft, and now Maci Bookout.

It's a little odd that after a year on a reality show, she is suddenly focusing her energy on a career in entertainment, but it isn't surprising at all. She is an athletic and attractive girl and I'm sure would do very well on the show. But she was also the mom with the best future on the Teen Mom franchise and now, between the implants and the entertainment aspirations, it seems maybe she is falling prey to the Hollywood glamour.

Fingers crossed that she keeps her head on straight ...

Do you think DWTS is a good idea for her?
