Dramatic relationships are always a common theme within Teen Mom storylines, and it looks like the upcoming episode of Teen Mom OG will not be an exception.
A new, uber-uncomfortable clip shows OG Maci Bookout enjoying a friendly brunch with her boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, and a group of friends, when the conversation starts to examine the future of Bookout and McKinney’s relationship.
The mood of of the outing quickly slides downhill after a friend asks McKinney if wedding bells will be ringing anytime soon, which McKinney answers by making a frantic “cut it out” motion.
“When’s that ring coming?” the friend asks as McKinney laughs in a nervous, high-pitched tone.
“When are you going to make me an honest woman?” Bookout quickly interjects, pouncing on the opportunity to talk about a subject that is undoubtedly on her mind all the time.
“I would never talk someone into proposing to me, but at the same time, I get tired of it,” Bookout says to the rest of the table. “I get tired of people coming on to me like, ‘he’s a piece of shit,’ because he won’t propose to me. You know what I mean? Like, I get tired of defending him… We’ve been together for three years. We have a child together. We own a house together.”
McKinney and Bookout’s crew don’t seem to disagree with any of Bookout’s points, but McKinney still doesn’t seem to be giving any hard answers on when — or if — he will pop the question.
“We can end it, just end it,” Bookout says to McKinney at the end of the amazingly awkward clip.
Teen Mom fans likely aren’t surprised about the exchange, as Bookout has been wondering — out loud to a group of media people — what McKinney’s holdup is a lot lately.
“Marriage is something I want in my life,” Bookout shared in a December interview with Us Weekly. “In my opinion — and I think Taylor would agree — we pretty much are already married. So it’s kind of like, ‘All right, what are we waiting on?’ I’m confused.”
