Maci Bookout threatened to leave Teen Mom OG on the show’s most recent episode, when she learned Farrah Abraham was becoming a permanent member of the cast.
Us Weekly reports that when the show’s producer informed the girls that the former porn star and erotic novelist was officially returning, some took the news in stride.
Amber Portwood had no problem with the decision at all.
“Good, she shouldn’t have been taken off in the first place. No matter how much I don’t like somebody, we’re different now. She has a good story to tell. We’re all very different stories,” she said.
Even Catelynn Lowell, who had a verbal altercation with Farrah Abraham when the girls got together for the Couple’s Therapy reunion, seemed fine with her return.
“It doesn’t bug me at all,” Catelynn says. “Our beef is gone. She can be a good person.”
Maci Bookout seemed to be the only real naysayer–and she appeared serious about it, too.

“If this is true, I’m done,” she said on the show. “I’m not doing this anymore. I’m not going to have my six-year-old son on a show with someone who did porn.”
Maci Bookout’s boyfriend, Tyler McKinney, shared his thoughts on Farrah Abraham’s return.
“Everything that [Maci]’s trying to build and the message that she’s trying to portray–that being a young mother is hard–she feels like every time she takes a step forward in that, being linked to Farrah it takes her two steps back,” he said.
Fans watched Maci Bookout nod her head in agreement with what Tyler said.
“I’m actually really mad. My feelings are hurt. This is bulls—t. I’m not doing it. You’re not going to talk me into it. There’s no discussion. This is it. I’m pissed off. I’m really, really mad. As far as I’m concerned, you guys can leave now. This is over. I’m done,” she said.
And that was the last viewers saw of Maci Bookout or her son Bentley on that episode of Teen Mom OG?
Will she be back?
Well, of course she will. She’s under contract with MTV and she wants the money she is being paid to air her dirty laundry on reality TV.

What this likely means, however, (and who didn’t see this coming?), is that Maci Bookout and Farrah Abraham will be at each other’s throats throughout this entire season of Teen Mom OG.
And isn’t that what ‘reality’ TV is all about?
