While in route to Detroit, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout answered some of her fans’ burning questions (via the Twitter). The trip to Detroit was just the latest leg in Maci’s trip around the country to see her new boyfriend, Kyle, race. (If you have been living under a rock, or, you know, have a life, and didn’t know that she is dating a different Kyle than we saw on ‘Teen Mom,’ click here and let The Ashley fill you in.)
Anyway, Maci was surprisingly candid with her answers to the fans’ question, even addressing tough topics such as her breakup with the other Kyle, and her feelings about the show. The Ashley has condensed all of Maci’s answers into a neat little package for you guys.
Maci discussed her feelings on being on ‘Teen Mom.’
Q: What’s the hardest part of having your life on TV?
Maci: “Building thick skin and not punching morons in the face.”
Ok. That answer just made me like Maci a whole lot more. Moving on….
Q: Do you think MTV portrays you differently on the show than you really are without cameras around?
Maci: “No… I’ve been happy with the reality of what they show on MTV.”
Hmmm…maybe it’s just me but I’ve always felt that MTV gives Maci a very kind edit. She’s obviously not as saintly as she’s portrayed on the show. For instance, I highly doubt that this little incident will make see the light of day on MTV.
Q: How do you feel about ‘Teen Mom’ ending?
Maci: “It’s sad because it was such a huge part of my life for four years but I’m relieved also, it’s time to move on.”
Q: If MTV offered you a spin-off show would you take it?
A: “That’s a tough one…depends on the angle [of the show.]”
With all the traveling she’s been doing, she should do a weird Maci Bookout version of Road Rules or something. But Bentley has to be in it or I’m not watching. I need to see his adorable face!
Maci also tackled some tough questions about her relationships.
Q: Why didn’t you and Kyle [King] work out?
Maci: “We just didn’t work out. Bad decisions were made and it was just time to let go.”
Q: How is Kyle Regal and Bentley’s relationship going?
Maci: “They are friends… but I’m obviously holding off on allowing a close relationship to form too fast.”
This makes me happy to hear. Bentley’s probably a little confused right now.
Finally, Maci addressed teen pregnancy and her own possibilities of popping out some more babies.
Q: Has Bentley asked for any brothers or sisters yet?
Maci: “Yes he asks for a sister.”
Q: Do plan on having anymore kids any time soon?
A: “Soon? No. But I’d love to have more kids one day.”
Q: What is your reply to all the haters that think you publicize teen pregnancy?
Maci: “Check the statistics since my episode of ’16 & Pregnant’ first aired in 2009.” (I think she’s referring to this story! Keep wrapping it up, kids!)
