Everyone who watched MTV's Teen Mom knows what a dedicated parent Maci Bookout is. This girl is a super-hard worker, is getting a college degree to set a good example for her kiddo, and is generally awesome. But ever since turning 21, Maci's been partying like a rock star — by which we mean a reality star.

Maci spends a lot of her time tweeting musings about her love for beer/ posting photos of herself trolling around various bars, and as a result she's gotten a reputation as a total party girl. And while it's true that Maci likes to throw back a couple cold ones, she's tired of people misjudging her.

"The biggest misconception about me is that I party too much," Maci recently told OK! Magazine. "Everyone on Instagram talks about it, and I’m like, 'Don’t you realize that my son, Bentley, goes to his dad’s [Ryan Edwards] house every other weekend for three days?' If my homework is done and Bentley is not with me, I am definitely going to go get a beer — because I deserve it!"

Maci definitely deserves to relax with a few brewskis, and it goes without saying that she'd never party in front of Bentley. (We'll just go ahead and forget about that one time she and Ryan took him to Hooters...)

Do you think Maci parties too hard, or are fans being too judgemental? Let us know in the comments!
