Can you believe it has been almost a year since Teen Mom was on the air? MTV cancelled the show that made Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood household names after four seasons, but the network is far from done with Maci. The mom from Tennessee has gotten her own official TV special!
Being Maci: A Teen Mom Special airs this Sunday night on MTV after a marathon of 16 & Pregnant episodes. Can't wait? Good news! The Stir got a sneak peek at the episode shot last December, and we've got the skinny on everything Maci.
First, let's clear up the big question: yes, Ryan Edwards, Maci's one-time fiance and father of her little boy, Bentley, makes an appearance. Well, more than an appearance. We get to see quite a bit of Ryan, his girlfriend (at the time) Dalis Connell, and his parents, Jen and Larry.
Maci and Ryan are no longer a couple (as we saw on Teen Mom), but let's just say the sparks are still there! Expect complications ... seeing as I did just mention Dalis is still in the picture!
The chance to see the Ryan and Maci game is reason enough to tune in, right?
But there's more!
Ryan has grown up! He's 25, and he's a real dad these days, and he's got some strong opinions about what Maci should (and shouldn't) be doing around Bentley and who should be around his son.
At least one biiiiiig source of contention is gone, but new ones have popped up in, well, let's just say his place.
It's been a year since the last show aired, but even longer since MTV was taping Teen Mom, and Maci's entire network of friends has changed big time. So we get to meet her three new housemates (besides Bentley, of course) and find out what it's like to make real friends when you're famous.
Basically, the show gives us a good update on what Maci has been up to, although it's just one hour ... and I'd love to see more. There's clearly enough to make a show, just with Ryan and Maci. Maybe Teen Mom: Custody Battles?
Come on, MTV, we want a full spin-off!!
Being Maci airs at 10 pm. ET/ 9 CT on MTV on Sunday, August 18.
Have you been keeping up with Maci since her show went off the air? What are you hoping to see?
