Maci Bookout Struggles on Naked and Afraid, Receives Major Support From Fans

Teen Mom OG fans spent several months anticipating Maci Bookout's appearance on Naked and Afraid.

And we think it's safe to say they didn't quite get what they were hoping for.

Maci's wilderness adventure was a short one, as the mother of three struggled mightily during her time in Nicaragua.

Some viewers stated that they had hoped to see more of Ms. Bookout, but most applauded her courage in taking on such a challenge.

And as a bonus, her happy-go-lucky partner definitely earned some new fans!

1. Maci Bookout: Both Naked and Afraid

Maci spent the past week hyping her appearance on the show, and she was clearly excited to share the experience with fans.

2. TV’s Toughest Show

No show on television tests the limits of human endurance quite like Naked and Afraid, and very few contestants last the full 21 days. So Maci certainly isn’t alone in not completing the challenge.

3. Badass Attitude

In her intro video, Maci referred to herself as a badass, a word that’s often used by TMOG fans when describing the tough-as-nails mother of three.

4. Firestarter

She described her preparations for the show, revealing that she spent a lot of time working on starting fires without the aid of matches or a lighter. At first, it seemed that all that hard work paid off.

5. Early Success

Maci and her partner — an ICU nurse named Justin — managed to build a fire on their first day in the wilderness — a rare accomplishment on Naked and Afraid.

6. No Match For Nicaragua

Unfortunately, that would prove to be Maci’s final triumph in the jungles of Nicaragua.

Anthony Bourdan Suicide: Major New Detail Revealed

While the world continues to come to grips with the loss of Anthony Bourdan, a key new detail regarding the celebrity chef’s death has been made official.

Bourdain, of course, tragically took his own life on Friday.

His body was discovered in a French hotel room by close friend Eric Ripert, who had been filming a new episode of CNN’s Parts Unknown with Bourdan in Ripert’s native country.

Those who have followed this sad story closely already knew that Bourdain killed himself via hanging, and they already knew his death took place in the aforementioned hotel room.

But French officials have now confirmed two more critical pieces of information:

  1. Bourdain hanged himself in the hotel room’s bathroom.
  2. He used the belt from his bathrobe to do so.

Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny also says that there are no signs of foul play.

There are no indications anyone had entered Bourdain’s room at the luxury Le Chambard Hotel any time close to the beloved star’s passing.

This should effectively end all official inquiries into Bourdain’s death.

Questions will continue to be asked about Bourdain’s state of mind and mental history and what could have possibly caused him to make such a heartbreaking decision.

But there are not many more practical details related to his suicide that remain uncovered.

The French prosecutor did add in his report that toxicology tests were being carried out, including urine tests, to determine if Bourdain was on any medications at the time of his hanging.

Said CNN in a statement yesterday morning:

It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdains.

His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.

His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.

Bourdain had premiered Parts Unknown on the networkin 2013 and won a Peabody Award shortly thereafter.

He was widely respected for the way he paid tribute on his show to a wide variety of cultures and countries.

Tweeted Italian actress Asia Argento, Bourdain’s girlfriend of about a year, hours after news of the chef’s death went viral:

“Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds.

He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated.

My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.”

Bourdain leaves behind an 11-year old daughter from his second marriage.

He was 61 years old at the time of his death.

His final act came three days after fashion designer Kate Spade also killed herself; she did so by hanging herself in her New York City apartment.

In response to these developments, the Mental Health Association of New York tells TMZ that its hotline has experienced a 25% increase in call volume compared to this time last week.

The number has been shared by number of celebrities on social media, which the organization says has resulted in more people “being aware of the resource and calling the Lifeline to get help.”

It’s simply awful that it took the suicides of two respected global figures for this to happen.

But perhaps some solace can be found in the silver lining that people with mental health struggles are taking the necerssary measures to make sure they don’t end up like Bourdain, Spade and so many others.

Blac Chyna Drops Major Kardashians Bombshell: They Threatened to Do WHAT?!?

According to Blac Chyna, the Kardashian family really had it out for her last year.

To the extemt that they were willing to shoot themselves in the foot just to make sure she was decapated completely.

Allow us to explain…

As detailed back in October, Chyna is suing the world’s most famous reality show family, alleging that Kris Jenner and company conspired in the past to ruin her career.

(Go ahead and take a few moments to laugh out loud over the concept of Chyna having a “career.” We’ll wait…)

In legal documents filed by Blac’s lawyer, the mother of two says that Kris and her daughters used their “power and influence over the E! network to kill the second season” of Rob & Chyna.

It is true, of course, that there was no second season of Rob & Chyna.

But it’s also true that the series garnered VERY low ratings, and that was before Chyna and her baby daddy had one explosive argument after another prior to breaking up over a year ago.

So… did the Kardashian really plot to destroy Chyna’s reputation and make it hard for her to earn money, as she claims?

Or did a cable network abide by the demands of its biggest stars and shut down Rob & Chyna because it feared repercussions from Kris if it failed to do so?

The latter, Chyna and her legal team claim.

In new court papers, Chyna actually says that Kim Kardashian and her loved ones issued the ultimate threat to E! executives:

Cancel Rob & Chyna… or we’ll stop filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians!

TMZ has all the details.

This celebrity gossip website writes that scenes for Season 2 of Rob & Chyna had already been filmed when E! pulled the plug.

And why did this happen?

Chyna claims the axe fell in January of 2017 after a “key meeting” took place between E! higher-ups and the Kardashian clan.

During this meeting, Kim, Kris and everyone said they would yank the network’s highest-rated program off the air if E! didn’t say goodbye to Chyna.

Blac goes on to allege a significant factor for her show’s cancelation was because the Kardashians “falsely claimed” she was being physically abusive toward Rob.

Rob and Chyna are on decent terms these days actually.

They co-parent daughter Dream and they haven’thad a public blow-up in months, which is remarkable for these two stars.

Did the Kardashians truly blackmail E! to guarantee the end of Chyna’s reality show career on that network?

We really don’t know. We mostly doubt it.

But Chyna may have more pressing concerns to worry about these days anyway.

Such as the entire Internet thinking she sucks at oral sex…

Maci Bookout Scores MAJOR Legal Victory Over Ryan Edwards!

If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, then by now, you're probably aware that Ryan Edwards has spent the past few months royally effing up just about every aspect of his life.

Ryan has gotten arrested; he's fallen off the wagon; he's cheated on his wife; and he's gone to great lengths to alienate those closest to him.
