Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards have been at odds lately. The Edwards family was let go from the Teen Mom franchise, which Ryan blamed on Maci, but we’re pretty sure that’s not the whole story.
Maci and Ryan’s son, Bentley, has been spending most of his time with his mother and stepfather, Taylor McKinney. Ryan and his family have made it clear they believe Maci is to blame for Ryan’s strained relationship with his son, but Maci has said otherwise.
In an exclusive statement to Teen Mom Talk Now, Maci is explaining exactly how she feels about Ryan and his relationship with their son.
During the Teen Mom OG reunion, Taylor McKinney had some choice words for Ryan Edwards.
“I think every week when you watch a new episode, you think Ryan can’t possibly be any dumber than he is, and he will prove you wrong the next week,” Taylor said. “I mean that guy can really show you how big a piece of sh*t he really is.”
But Ryan didn’t let that slide and spoke to The Sun about Taylor’s statement.
“I think Taylor is a punk b*tch,” Ryan told the outlet.
He then continued to hurl insults at Maci Bookout’s husband.
“People do that because they feel incompetent, threatened or less than whatever makes him feel that way,” Ryan continued. “He could be like my one-year-old that does stuff like that for attention.”
Ryan and his family were previously fired from the Teen Mom franchise, but it appears he has been taking it in stride.
“We are so happy that we are no longer doing it. This is the happiest I’ve been since before I started taking pain killers,” he told The Sun. “It makes me real happy to see my wife so happy so I couldn’t ask for much more.”
But before he seemed to be accepting of his fate, he blamed Maci for getting them off the show.
“Maci is in fear that my mom and dad will start telling the truth. She will always fight to have us off the show,” he said after MTV made their decision.
But now, Maci has decided that she isn’t going to let Ryan try and control the narrative! He and his parents have been blaming Maci for Ryan’s troublesome relationship with Bentley, but Maci has had enough.
“If Ryan spoke to the therapist as much as he has spoken to the tabloids over the few months; he might actually have a relationship with Bentley,” she exclusively told Teen Mom Talk Now.
This isn’t the first time Maci has mentioned Ryan needing to try harder with her son, either.
