Teen Mom: The Next Chapter is slated to premiere on September 6 with the casts of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 combined in this super show. Ahead of its premiere, MTV released a promo teasing the events that await fans. However, there was something odd about Maci Bookout in the trailer that caught fans’ eyes.
Teen Mom OG Maci Bookout Reconnects With Husband Taylor
Maci Bookout, who starred in 16 & Pregnant followed by Teen Mom OG, seemed unrecognizable, flaunting a seemingly different face in the trailer. The promo lasted about 30 minutes, where the 30-year-old engaged in a heart-to-heart chat with her husband, Taylor McKinney.
The pair sat in their backyard with a bonfire in front as the mother of three tried to reconnect with her husband. However, Maci did hesitate to hold his hand when Taylor offered to do so. She also confessed, “This is stupid. I’d rather be by myself, or I would rather find somebody else or whatever you’re thinking.”
During their conversation, she asked Taylor, “Why’d you stay?”
To this, Taylor replied, “Because I love you.”
Fans Feel Maci Bookout Is Severely Depressed
As Taylor and Maci continued to reconnect with their romantic conversation throughout the night, fans were invested in something else. As per The Sun, they discussed how the Teen Mom OG alum looked very different than her regular self.
One fan commented, “Alcohol and fillers aren’t doing her any favors. I think Maci is severely depressed and miserable with her life but tries so hard to put on this tough girl act.”
“Cigarettes eat the elasticity out of your skin,” added another.
A third fan mentioned, “They have small children, which is straining on a relationship, and she drinks too much.”
“Fillers over time just give you that puffy face. That’s why she looks like she has a different face on,” chimed the fourth fan.
A fifth fan cited his failure to recognize the reality star and said, “I don’t recognize OG Maci!”
Are Maci’s Ex Ryan Edwards & Wife Mackenzie Back On Teen Mom?
Maci and Taylor share two kids named Jayde (6) and Maverick (5). The TV personality also shares 13-year-old Bentley with her ex Ryan Edwards. Ryan and his wife Mackenzie are the parents of Jagger (3) and Stella (2). The couple, along with their parents Jen and Larry, were regulars in the show. However, they were fired back in 2021 after their ongoing feud with Maci was too much for the makers to handle.
However, Mackenzie recently disclosed during Instagram live that MTV had asked the Edwards family to be a part of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. She claimed, “They did their little spiel about, ‘I’m sorry-so sorry- that things went down the way that they did. Your story was left untold. They don’t get to see the other side- the viewer.’ You know, blah, blah, blah.”
“Ryan heard them out for a second and basically said, ‘I don’t want anything of what you are selling. I don’t have time for that, sorry’,” she continued.
