Maci Bookout Shares Why She Almost Quit the 'Teen Mom' Reboot

Teen Mom: Original Girls is coming back to MTV on Monday, March 23, and in true Teen Mom fashion, it's not without its fair share of drama. When the network decided to reboot the series, Farrah Abraham initially didn't make the cut, due to some questionable lifestyle choices she has made since going off the air. When she was invited back, her costar Maci Bookout almost quit the show then and there. 


It's been over two years since we've seen Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout, and Farrah Abraham on MTV, and a lot has happened in that time. Catelynn and Maci have both gotten pregnant again, Amber spent time in jail and got herself cleaned up, and Farrah ... made a sex tape. And sex toys. And even a sex doll with her face on it.

Um ... yeah.

Maci recently sat down with Wetpaint to talk about Farrah's return, and why she wasn't happy about it. She shared, "I'm still frustrated by it and it doesn't have anything to do with Farrah personally ... I don't have any hard feelings towards her, I don't judge her or anything like that."

So what's the problem? It's all about Bentley. Maci said she had a hard time accepting that her 6-year-old son would be featured on the show, and after the commercial break, potentially having something about Farrah and her scandalous endeavors on the air. "There's a fine line in what's appropriate for children to be around," she shared.

In the clip, Maci pretty much tells the film crew to get out of there when she finds out that Farrah is going to be a part of the show after all. "You guys can leave now," she said. "This is over."

Obviously, Maci found some way to cope with appearing on the show alongside Farrah, and we'd be lying if we said we weren't thrilled about it. We are dying to see more of her boyfriend of two years, Taylor McKinney, and follow along as they are expecting a baby girl together.

Because really, if you had to make a choice, wouldn't you rather have Maci on the show than Farrah? Take a look at the clip below to hear Maci explain in detail why she had a problem with Farrah coming back to Teen Mom.

Do you blame Maci for feeling this way about Farrah?
