'Teen Mom' Maci says child support is a 'joke' to baby's dad

“Teen Mom” returns for its third season tonight, and — no surprise — it looks like the usual family woes will kick off on premiere night, too.

For Maci Bookout, those woes include a financial hardship. It seems baby Bentley’s daddy, otherwise known as Ryan Edwards, quit paying child support payments some time after he started collecting unemployment payments.

“Hey, can you get me a new baby-daddy?” Bookout asks a friend in the upcoming episode. “After 45 days (of no child support), they’ll put him in contempt of court, which basically means he has to go to jail. I just don’t understand how he thinks child support is a joke.”

See the custody talk continue in a clip available on UsMagazine.com, or for more upcoming “Teen Mom” drama, watch the season three trailer below.

In other "Teen Mom" news, Farrah Abraham, whose ex-boyfriend Derek Underwood died in 2008, is telling TV Guide she may start dating again, but that it's tough to figure out who likes her for herself, and who's just looking for her reality show fame. "I'm not a whore," said the Iowa native.

"Teen Mom" airs tonight 10 p.m on MTV.
