Maci Bookout AKA “a Teen Mom” has recently said that she doesn’t want her son growing up in the limelight — after being surrounded by cameras all his life (all two years of it), she doesn’t want that kind of life for him.
No more reality TV for baby Bentley . . . He’s heading into early retirement.
I don’t want to steal his childhood . . . I don’t know if being on TV in elementary school would be difficult for him. I want him to have a normal life.”
This sounds perfectly reasonable to me!
“I think there’ll come a time when he’ll be like, ‘Mom, we’re not normal! Why does everyone want to take my picture? Why does everyone know my name, but I don’t know them?'”
But she also recognizes the fact that the hit reality TV show has been a blessing in many ways.
“Without the show, I would’ve had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time and rarely ever get to spend time with Bentley. . . It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”
Godspeed, Maci! I commend you for sacrificing that $60,000 paycheck (per season of Teen Mom) for the betterment of your son’s future!
