Teen Mom OG's Maci Bookout is blasting MTV with a tweet that states she feels she is not "accurately portrayed" on the show.
Taking to the social media site, Bookout wrote, "It’d be amazing if the chaotic, cute, real life, family/marriage stuff we film made it on the show. Do I feel like my story is accurately portrayed on the show? Absolutely NOT."
"Do I wish they’d stop making something/someone my entire story on the show? Absolutely YES," she then exclaimed.
Bookout is far from being the first Teen Mom star to criticize the network for the way they portray the cast members.
Bristol Palin infamously chided the network in an Instagram post ahead of quitting Teen Mom OG in April of this year. She was initially brought in to replace Farrah Abraham, who had a rocky relationship with the series, and was also often critical of the way producers handled things.

If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today - let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my “life” ..... my babies, my family, my close friends - they know the TRUTH. I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life. @mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true. Don’t get me wrong - I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months - but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama. Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV.
“My flight's messed up? I’m done. Are you kidding me? Quit,” Portwood quipped. “I’m just crazy, and I’m not dumb, but I’m crazy enough to just quit. It’s a horrible thing. They have to talk me down, and my manager’s great. She talks to me; she’s like, ‘Listen, we got this.’ I’m like, ‘You know what? You’re right. I’m doing good. Everything’s good.’ ”
