WATCH: Farrah Abraham Reflects On Her Fight With Maci Bookout—'I Really Have No Energy For That Negativity'
Last night’s Teen Mom OG showed a major blowout between Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout. During the cast’s NYC press trip, Farrah learned that Maci quit the show when she found out Farrah was coming back, and the girls tried to talk it out in person—to no avail.
Now, both girls are telling their sides of the story again and explaining why trying to talk it out went nowhere.
First, watch below as Farrah weighs in on her and Maci’s attempt at reconciliation. Farrah says that while she thinks “there is a possibility for growth and maturity on Maci’s part,” she overall has “no energy” for the negativity and it “doesn’t effect my life.” Well then.
Maci, on the other hand, shows a little more understanding, explaining that the reason why she wanted to sit down and talk to Farrah was to show her that her quitting wasn’t to hurt her feelings or anything against her personally. As for why Maci didn’t hear Farrah out during their awkward sit-down? “It’s difficult when I don’t feel like she’s hearing me,” Maci says. “She can be a bit disrespectful and it’s hard for me to sit back and make her try and feel better when she’s talking to me like that.”
If you need some background, the disagreement between the TMOG co-stars began when the show’s producers told Maci midway through filming that they decided to bring Farrah back after all. Farrah wasn’t originally a part of the season’s first five episodes, reportedly because of her experience with porn and adult entertainment, and Maci was only going to sign on to do the show if Farrah wasn’t on it. Maci felt blind-sided and taken advantage of when she got the news. She quit for just one episode but was back by the following episode, only under the condition, however, that her son, Bentley, wouldn’t appear on the show. “I’m not going to have my son on a show with someone who does porn on TV,” she said.
