Bristol Palin & Maci Bookout: Celeb Teen Mom BFFs

No doubt about it, life for a single teen mom is challenging. But facing the hardships of young motherhood under the speculation of the media is an altogether unique challenge.

Luckily, 19-year-old celebrity BFFs Bristol Palin and Maci Bookout, star of MTV’s reality show Teen Mom, are facing their challenges together. “I feel like Maci and I have the same situation,” the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells In Touch.

Bristol, mom to 21-month-old Tripp, first met Maci at the Candie’s Foundation Event to prevent teen pregnancy in New York City this summer where, says Bristol, “We talked about experiences we’ve shared.”

Months later, the teens are still keeping in close contact. “The other day, I saw an episode of Teen Mom, and then I texted her, saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I totally went through that exact same thing!’” says Bristol, and adds that “the show doesn’t glamorize teen pregnancy; it’s the raw truth [of ] how difficult it really is.”

    Life of a single moms is wavy in nature. Hard because of finances but fun because of the child.

    There should really be a law passed that regulates the exploitation of children on reality shows and in tabloids.
