Maci Bookout debuts 'Being Maci,' draws criticism for spanking son Bentley

maci-bookout-being-maci-MTV.jpg "Teen Mom" went off the air a year ago, but Maci Bookout is back on MTV with a new special, titled "Being Maci," which features the young mom living in a house with two of her girlfriends plus her four-year-old son Bentley.

It also showed Maci having a civil relationship with Ryan Edwards, her former fiance and baby daddy to her son. The two aren't getting back together (which is probably for the best), but it's nice to see them behaving like adults for Bentley's sake.

Bookout was busy tweeting during the premiere, writing, "If Being Maci showed yall anything its that no matter whatshappened im still just BEING MACI . nothing will ever change that."

And she's right -- the episode showed her spanking her son, which, if Twitter is an indication, was a controversial move. But she defends herself, writing, "I got my spanked as a kid for being a brat when i knew better.. so questioning this is questioning my parents and i take offense to that."

Did you watch "Being Maci"? What did you think?
