It’s been over a year since the original Teen Mom series ended, but one of its stars, Maci Bookout, is still doing her best to help prevent teen pregnancy. (Unlike her co-star, Farrah Abraham, who is doing her best to ride out her pathetic 15 minutes of fame!)
The MTV reality star recently wrote an article for Cosmopolitan magazine in which she discussed her life as a mom to a five year-old, why she did 16 and Pregnant and what she says to people that say that ‘Teen Mom’ and ’16 and Pregnant’ help to promote, rather than prevent, teen pregnancy.
“I can definitely see why people say the show glamorizes teen pregnancy,” Maci wrote. “But if anyone ever sat down and watched it — especially the 16 and Pregnant episodes — there is nothing glamorous about that.”
