They made up!
We all know that sometimes, making friends with an ex is not the easiest thing to do. Then again, when you’re a star on Teen Mom, the fact that all of your personal drama with your ex is publicly aired at all times makes it even more difficult. There are some cast members who may never be able to stop feuding with their exes, which is particularly difficult when those exes are the fathers of their children.
Just because Maci Bookout has never been one of the more dramatic cast members doesn’t mean things are peachy keen between her and her ex, Ryan Edwards. When Ryan’s addiction problems came to light, Maci was brought to her wit’s end while she struggled to co-parent with her ex.
Now it looks like the two are finally on good terms again. In fact, they’re about to be hanging out with one another very soon!
Maci Bookout is happily married to her husband, Taylor McKinney, and together they have two children, Maverick and Jayde. But her first child, Bentley, has a different baby daddy: the notorious Ryan Edwards.
Although Maci and Ryan tried to make it work through Bentley’s infancy, the couple eventually split up. Since then, Ryan has tried time and again to prove himself as a father… and has fallen short at basically every turn. But Ryan’s poor parenting is not the only reason his relationship with Maci became so strained.
No father will say that raising a child is easy, but throwing drugs into the mix certainly doesn’t help. Ryan’s prolonged drug addiction has been a huge point of contention between Maci and Ryan. She even called him out for his issues at the Teen Mom reunion just recently.
But apparently, these two are putting the past behind them, and all in the name of love! But before you get stressed, don’t worry; Maci is staying with her husband Taylor. It’s Ryan and his wife Mackenzie Standifer that are celebrating a happy occasion!
Most fans know that Ryan and Mackenzie are already formally married. Not because it was the biggest Teen Mom wedding, but because it may have been one of the most scandalous! Ryan was reportedly high on Xanax during the ceremony itself, and even dozed off at the wheel while driving his future wife to the venue!
But, much like their co-stars Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer, the two are having another wedding celebration. Mackenzie and Ryan have been sharing updates about the big day, and some are surprised who’s going to be in attendance!
Maci vs. Mackenzie
Even though Maci and Mackenzie have had their differences in the past, Radar Online reports that Maci has confirmed she’ll be attending the wedding. “Mackenzie received Maci’s response card. Yes, she will be there,” a source told the outlet. “They are getting along.”
This is a pretty significant step in their relationship, considering that at a recent reunion, Mackenzie was publicly ripping Maci for how she handled Ryan’s problems. “Maci, you told me to my face merely days after I had informed you that Ryan was seeking help that ‘you have known about his problem since November… that was 186 days he could’ve died and still you said nothing,’” she said. “’You let everyone know that you feared for his life while concurrently exploiting Ryan’s addiction on the show.’”
She went on, “I had only known about it for two days before Ryan was walking into treatment. Instead of solving the problem or doing what you could to make an effort to solve it, you decided to humiliate Ryan.”
But Maci held that everyone around Ryan knew about his addiction, including Mackenzie. “You’re so full of s–t your eyes are brown,” Maci told her.
Looks like time really can heal all wounds!
