On last night’s episode of Teen Mom, it’s time for witches, monsters and costumes…and I’m not talking about the actual cast. Happy Halloween, Teen Moms! Amber struggles with her recent Child Protective Services investigation, Farrah does her best to finish culinary school on a high note, Maci and Ryan don’t succeed in co-parenting, and Catelynn and Tyler look for employment.
Tyler and Catelynn hit up a local haunted corn maze, and while I am normally TERRIFIED by these kinds of things in real life, it looks ridiculously silly on television. The couple assesses their finances and realize they both need to find an after-school job. They are growing up so fast.
Sophia is “helping” Farrah load the dishwasher as she stresses over the end of culinary school. Sophia seems to be as hard-headed as her mother. Farrah’s mom hopes her school recipes are gluten free so she can sample. Farrah accepts an invitation from her sister, with whom she’s had issues, to go to the pumpkin patch the following day.

Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is starting to have second thoughts about doing the popular MTV show according to a new interview with Life & Style magazine.
The reason? Maci, 19, worries about how the show is affecting her 2-year-old son Bentley Edwards. “I don’t want to steal his childhood,” says Maci who is worried about Bentley growing up under a harsh media microscope. “I don’t know if being on TV in elementary school would be difficult for him. I want him to have a normal life.”
Maci, who reportedly earns $60,000 per season, however adds that choosing to walk away from the fame show would be a very difficult decision because it has allowed her to provide for her son. “Without the show, I would have had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time, and I’d rarely get to spend time with Bentley,” Maci says. “It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”
As for the moment, Maci assures us Bentley’s not being affected by the show in any negative way. “He actually enjoys it,” she confesses. “Bentley thinks it’s cool to watch himself on TV and to have cameras around.”
In other Teen Mom news, Catelynn Lowell, you know, the one that sort of has it together and therefore no one really talks about her, is making recent headlines. The reason? It all has to do with an eviction.
According to TMZ Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, who were shown moving into their 1st apartment together on the MTV show, were evicted from the same apartment for failing to pay rent! The 19-year-olds signed a lease on the apartment in Marine City, Michigan, in August, 2010 with court documents showing they stopped paying rent in December, 2010.
This caused their landlord to give them an eviction notice while also taking them to court. The landlord ending up winning big as the two had to give up their $450.00 security deposit, in addition to paying an additional $450 in back rent and moving out of the building.
The two of course did what any other 19-year-olds would do by taking to their twitter pages to give their side. “The landlord was an idiot and didn’t fix anything I payed [sic] every month that I lived there,” Catelynn tweeted. Tyler added, “Ok everyone I did not get evicted, I left bcuz the landlord was a lazy unprofessional man of business, and I refuse to put with it FYI.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the eviction drama makes the show.
A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US – SHOULD LITTLE KIDS BE ON REALITY TV? PLUS THOUGHTS ON CATELYNN’S EVICTION?
For most teens they fear their diary will end up passed around school, but in Teen Mom star Maci’s case her diary is being passed around the tabloids! Oops! Behaving like a typical teen Maci warbled her thoughts to her friend dear diary and apparently, accidentally left the diary on a table where boyfriend Kyle King happened to find it causing him to dump her.
In a new exclusive from OK Magazine they reveal just what shocking information Kyle discovered! After reading Maci’s thoughts, Kyle who believed Maci was in love with him, soon found out she still has a thing for ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards- who is her son, Bentley’s father.
According to a source: “Maci wrote that she’ll always love Ryan and that she really misses him. And how they’ve got great sexual chemistry.” Poor Kyle was ostensibly beside himself: “When he told Maci he’d read the diary, he was sort of crying. Maci tried to explain it, but it didn’t seem to matter. He left the apartment and they haven’t talked in, like, a week.” Maci’s innermost thoughts became fodder for public consumption when someone an enraged Kyle, naturally called the tabloids! Whatever happened to calling a friend?
Maci is furious with Kyle too – as the “devoted diarist” is shocked Kyle would read her private musings! Another insider Maci claims: “She told Kyle that it’s just words, that she’s with him now. It’s not like Maci wrote, ‘I want to marry Ryan and have more kids with him.’ It was more that a part of her will always love Ryan. Ryan’s the father of her son and whenever she looks at Bentley, he’s a part of Ryan, too.” Will this drama be on the upcoming season of Teen Mom? One can only hope. Meanwhile it appears this story is true as Maci, who typically denies tabloid stories on her twitter, has yet to deny this one.
In other ridiculous Teen Mom news, Gary Shirley – father of Amber Portwood’s daughter Leah -has started a Twitter page for his two-year-old daughter. What’s next Toddlers in Tiaras? According to Us Magazine, Shirley, who immediately came under attack for pimping out his toddler, responded saying: “You guys, it should be obvious that Leah has no contact with Twitter,” he wrote. “This is just a fun concept that will in no way affect Leah herself.”
Shirley further clarified it’s him Tweeting (just in case anyone assumed it was a two-year-old): “This is for her sayings, things she’s doing, etc. It’s all me tweeting!” He also claims Leah does not actually read the Tweets. Sadly, despite the controversy Leah already has almost 5,000 followers. No comment from mama Amber, who is currently visiting rehab after a suicide attempt, on whether or not she approves of Toddlers on Twitter.

Do you think Kyle should have read Maci’s diary? Do you think Maci and Kyle will get back together? Would you put your two-year-old on Twitter?
In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, 19-year-old Maci, mother to 2-year-old Bentley, makes the surprising revelation. “I’m dying to have Kyle’s child!” says Maci of boyfriend of 16 months Kyle King.
The reason? Kyle is such a good parent to her son Bentley. “They way he is as a father is just amazing, and Bentley’s not even his kid” says Maci of the former Coca-Cola merchandiser. “I’m just like, ‘Oh, my God, let’s have a baby! I want to see my child and your child.’” Wowzers!
Maci goes on to reveal that Bentley formed an instant bond with Kyle, even crediting Kyle for potty training him. “I think they like each other more than they like me,” says Maci who is thinking pink when it comes to her next tot. Did I mention Maci is still 19-years-old? “I really want to have a girl. The clothes are so much cuter,” she says, adding, “I told Kyle that if the next one is a girl, we don’t necessarily have to try again, but if we have a boy, I want to try for a girl and maybe one more time after that.”
Maci goes on to reveal that more babies won’t be immediately. The reason? She would like to be married and not at all because she’s still 19. “I want Bentley to have a sibling close in age so they can play together, but I can’t have another baby until I get married.” Maci however adds that she would like to get married “sooner than later.” Let’s hope Kyle gets the hint!
Moving on to Farrah Abrahamwho was shown getting a boob job on the show’s season 3 premiere this week. Farrah tries to explain her reason for the new boobies stating once again that, “After having a baby, my boobs went away.” Farrah adds, “It hurt my self-esteem. I didn’t feel like I was woman enough anymore. I knew I could be happier.” Well Farrah can definitely afford her new boobies as Amber Portwood stated in court last year that MTV paid her $140,000 to film for six months. Safe to assume Farrah and others got the same amount.
And finally, the ratings for the season 3 premiere are out and viewers are still tuning in to watch MTV’s teenage mamas! With over 3.65 million viewers tuning in on Wednesday, the season 3 premiere was the most watched premiere episode in the show history.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MACI WANTING TO HAVE KYLE’S BABIES? SHOULD FARRAH HAVE GOTTEN THE BOOB JOB?
They’re ba-ack! The original Teen Moms, Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell returned last night for their third season as the first Teen Moms.
Maci is taking time off from work, and she and baby Bentley are living in Nashville for the summer to be close to new beau Kyle. She is concerned because Ryan seems to have slacked off with his child support payments. Maci calls a friend to complain, and they joke about the possibility of him going to jail. Maci doesn’t want future Bentley (at age eight, to be exact) to ask if Dad’s ever been in jail only to find out that yes, Dad was locked up for not providing for him. Is jail something that normal third graders inquire about in regard to their parents?
Farrah and her mother have continued counseling to mend their volatile relationship. Farrah is juggling culinary school, waitressing and modeling…oh yeah, and being a mom to baby Sophia. She reveals she’s ready for a big change…a move perhaps? College? Volunteering for a good cause? Um, no. A boob job. Seriously? Can I get a slow clap for MTV for making this girl a TV “star” and providing her with the money to “fix” the breasts that her toddler so selfishly changed by being born? She plans to take out a loan because, duh…she deserves to treat herself.

MTV has announced the third season of Teen Mom will premiere July, 5 at 10/9c!
All four original teen moms – Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, and Amber Portwood – return in what is being described as “their toughest year yet.” The press release adds, “the young parents face their biggest challenges yet. This season, the series goes deeper into the girls’ lives as they confront old wounds, struggle to further their education, face strained relationships and strive to give their children the best life possible.”
In the trailer below, we get to see more fighting between Amber and Gary plus Amber is scared when she discovers she might lose custody of Leah. Tyler and Catelynn wonder about their daughter and talk about moving in together, Maci struggles in school as with ex Ryan, and Farrah, who is having a tough time disciplining daughter Sophia, takes her to her deceased father’s grave.
And to ward off the backlash promote the new season, the MTV network rolled out a series of PSAs last month featuring the teen moms in which they talk about the importance of protection and preventing teen pregnancy. Those PSAs currently air on the MTV network.
In fact, the 19-year-old MTV reality star took to her twitter page to gush about her boyfriend. “I love my perrrrrfeeeect lover @kyleking100,” tweeted Maci this week to her over 170,000 followers.
It also seems marriage might be on the horizon for Maci as the latest issue of OK! magazine reports she wants to marry Kyle.
“Maci would love to get married and thinks planning a wedding would be fun,” an insider close to Maci tells OK!. “She’s gotten a few brides magazines and says they’re addictive.” Maci, mother of 2-year-old son Bentley, is said to be open to having more kids. “She does want more babies when the time is right,” adds the insider.
As for Maci’s ex/baby daddy Ryan Edwards, he appears to be okay with Maci’s new relationship. “I’ve moved on, too, so it doesn’t bother me,” said Ryan. “She can be with whoever she wants.”
In the meantime, Maci is setting her sights on Dancing With The Stars, as in she badly wants to appear on the show. Sources tell UsWeekly she is really “hoping she’ll get asked to be on DWTS” and that “her people are pushing hard for it.”
Well if Bristol Palin can do it…
TELL US – IS MACI MOVING TOO FAST WITH KYLE? SHOULD DANCING WITH THE STARS CAST A ‘TEEN MOM’ STAR?
According to Popeater, Bristol, 20, is set to release a 304-page memoir during the summer. The PoliticalWire first spotted the currently titled ‘Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir,’ earlier yesterday on Amazon’s website (Amazon has since deleted the page) with the release date of June 21.
How many pages is Bristol’s memoir you ask? Just a mere 304 pages! Apparently getting pregnant at age 17, capitalizing of her famous mother Sarah Palin to appear on DWTS, and her custody battle with baby daddy Levi Johnston has given Bristol a lot of material to write about.
Bristol also spoke to E! News yesterday during which she discussed her close friendship with MTV’s Teen Mom star Maci Bookout.
Bristol told E!, “When you are having babies at my age, you can’t really connect with the same friends you had. But I do have a friend that had a baby a few months after I had Tripp. So we’ve become really close friends because of that. Yes, it’s Maci! She’s become a really good friend.”
And despite being rumored to have moved to Arizona to be closer to her new beau Gino Paoletti, Bristol revealed the two are taking things slow. “We are taking it really slow, we are not in a rush, where i was with Levi.” She added, “We’ve been friends for a really long time, he is just a good guy, he is Christan, we have a lot in common.”
It also seems Bristol has had a change of heart since the last interview she did begging ex Levi to give up his parental rights. “I would love Levi to be part of his life, but I know with Levi’s lifestyle right now its pretty hard for him to see Trip right now,” she said adding that when Tripp wants to see his daddy, she will take him home to Alaska to do so.
