Teen Mom Recap: Have You Lost Your Damn Mind?

by at . Comments

Is Maci Bookout losing it? She wants another baby? Seriously?!

We think, given that these episodes are taped SO far in advance (even by reality show standards), that either Bookout had a change of heart, or this whole missive was manufactured to give sites like THG something to talk about.

In which case, bravo, MTV. Let's break down last night's Teen Mom:

Maci, Bentley

When 19-year-old Maci told her she wanted another baby, Sharon's response was simple. Six words: Have you lost your damn mind? Plus 12.

Maci's reasoning: "Bentley goes away half the week, and I'm just sitting there bored. If I had another baby, I wouldn't be bored." Minus 5.

If she's bored, she could watch some shows - 16 & Pregnant or Teen Mom for example - to remind her how hard having a baby is. Plus 3.

Or re-enroll in the classes she dropped. Minus 8.

Kyle, always the voice of reason, reminds Maci that he doesn't have a job, as he moved to Chattanooga so she could get her degree. Wonder if he's rethinking that one yet. Minus 10 for either contrived drama or poor planning.

We know what side Bentley's on. Baby Ky! Baby Ky! LOL. Plus 6.

Plus 6 more because we can see Maci's desire for a do-over now that she has a stable guy in her life. But seriously girl. Chill. And go to class.

"I'm wanting to move! I've put off moving to college for two years now! Will you watch Sophia!" - Farrah Abraham, really driving home a point! Minus 4.

"Obviously I'm on top of my stuff, I don't need to be babysat anymore," says a girl whose mom has provided full-time care of Sophia. Minus 5.

Leah and Amber Photo

If Farrah wants to get an education so bad, why does she have to look at Los Angeles colleges? Plus 3, because we all know the answer to that.

Amber Portwood is finally spending some quality time with her daughter after a month apart. Stupid cops and DCFS and their "rules." So weak. Plus 3.

Look at the photo above! She's like a real mom! Plus 2.

Sadly, she's sharing custody with Gary, and he will always be where "home" is to her. Home is where the Aeropostale shirt is, as the saying goes. Minus 4.

It's a good thing in the end that Amber isn't tasked with Leah full time. She's too much of a loose cannon, and we know it gets worse from here. Minus 10.

Her date is dressed as a waiter. Sigh. Minus 4.

Thanks to his gig at Dan's, Tyler and Catelynn are rolling in dough, and not of the pizza variety. Well, they make ends meet at least. All relative. Plus 8.

The stepsiblings go crazy on Christmas presents for their daughter. Even Butch gets into the act and picks out a little gift for Carly. Touching. Plus 6.

Tyler's mom crosses the line communicating with Carly's adoptive parents. Minus only 5, because at least she's come around to the adoption idea.

EPISODE TOTAL: -6. SEASON TOTAL: -8.

Thanks for the laughs. So true, so true! I agree that Maci should go to school w/o dropping ANY classes and find a P/T job. It's the EXACT message that young girls should not see/hear "I'm bored, I want another baby" YIKES!!! Maci think it out and come up with other ideas to cure your "boredom" please.

@ maci , are yu stupid!? Yu want another baby for the money! Do yu wanna take a chance of going through another Ryan situation!? Not sayin kyle would do that but yu need to think of ALL the possibilitys before yu wanna go into labor again! Yu've changed since doing this show, i can tell from the magr. & tv. I'm 15 & i won't for a second hesitate to tell yu how immature of yu gettin pregnant, cause yur bored, would be! Yu got yur whole life ahead of yu. Think about. It. My sister is 17 & just had my first niece, she is still in school. Senior this year already got college lined up. If she can do it being 17 yu can do it being 19.

Maci needs to grow up. She has no job, no degree she has nothing to offer a kid... is she looking to secure another season on teen mom, if so what happens when MTV moves on to the next big idea and stops filming this show? As Adele said. I don't have kids and i dont want to pay for yours.

When I heard Maci say that she wanted another baby, she not only sounded selfish but very childish. She is so headstrong that she doesn't listen to anything anyone tries to tell her. Just like her baby's father told her, she thinks she knows it all. I like her but as I continue to watch the show, she seems to me to be very self-centered. It's all about what she wants! I hope Kyle sticks to his guns and not let her make him grow up before his time. She is only 19 with one baby with no full-time father, and now she wants to take a chance on another man who may or may not leave her. Then, there she sits "bored" with not one but two babies all on her own. Grow up, Macie, pick up those dropped classes, get some counseling because you ALWAYS look sad to me, and have a wonderful life with that money you're getting paid to spill your life all over the TV and with that beautiful baby boy you have. You have a great life ahead of you, stop thinking about yourself, and ENJOY!!!!

A womans body us her own she wants another kid go for it but it takes 2 and from what it seems kyle is not ready for a child of his own. Im sure what she is thinking now is that mtv pays well but she isnt looking that far into the future when her mtv money is gone I have 2 children 1 planned and the other a suprise gift from god and its super hard to make ends meet! I like maci but she must think harder past her boredom to reality!

I love Maci,she is a great mom,but what in the hell is she thinking??! I thought by them airing this episode really defeated the purpose of Teen Mom trying to show these young girls how hard it is to be a teenage parent..She made it look like it wasnt a big deal and she wanted to go at it again..Really?? It seems as if she thinks by having a child by Kyle is going to make him happy and keep him around..it sure didnt help keep Ryan around!! If she feels that insecure then obviously her and Kyle's relationship needs to be worked on. "Maci" you already talk about how hard it is to finish school and be a mom..give yourself time to get your life together and build ur security with Kyle. He is a great guy and Im sure one day he will be a great father, but give it time and allow it to be the right time..you owe that to yourself and Bentley..Good luck!!!

BORED!!!!!????? Listen trick, your bored by choice. I'm a 26 year-old single mom of a 6 year-old girl and 2 year-old boy, I'm in school and I have a J-O-B. You wanna trade places cause I definitely would love to be bored. Get off your ass and go make a better life for yourself and your child.

I think Maci should retake on classes to get her degree try harder maybe should wouldn't be bored anymore.Sharing custody doesn't get any easier there will always be disagreement he's only 2 try when they reach their teen year's.Wait until he says one day I want to live with dad because you won't let him do something.School event's, class outing,teacher conference it never ends.You have the next 40 years with your ex.Work on yourself.I thin with farrah she needs a reality check she doesn't even have a job in her line of education and she wants to move who will babaysit? Amber please needs counseling more counseling and parent classes her temper will bite her back. and she may lose that little girl for good why is it when they have children at a young age all they think about is a guy.When my ex dump me(husband) all i thought about was my kids and improving our lives didn't date sure i went out with girlfriends but went home alone to my kids.
