The girls of Teen Mom 3, MTV's next season of the hit show, aren't even going to know what hits them when the show premieres (rumor says it will do so late this summer). There will be fame, "fortune," tabloids, and rumors galore. Buckle your seat belts girls. Luckily, the crew seems to have Maci Bookout to help them along on their journey.
The girls -- Alexandria Sekella, Mackenzie Douthit, Briana DeJesus, and Katie Yeager -- were in New York City filming what is rumored to be their first season reunion with Bookout.
Amber is in jail now. Jenelle is in and out of jail. Farrah is in porn. These are cliches. All the MTV shows in the world couldn't stop these women from becoming cliches.
Maci, on the other hand, is working hard to raise her son, save her money, get her education, and build a good life. It's very easy to think MTV will be there to break your fall or that it's a money train straight to the top.

But these girls don't make enough to make their lives from this. They aren't wealthy from these shows and they aren't truly famous (unless infamy counts). It would be important for them to remember that.
Maci does her appearances, she appears in the tabloids, but she hasn't done cheap things to cash in or engaged in twitter wars. She is rising above, raising her kid, and trying to move forward. Good on her.
I hope these girls follow her lead and not some of the other more dubious cast members. Only time will tell.
