She clearly has no more patience!
After a much-needed break, Farrah, Amber, Maci, and Catelynn will finally be returning to MTV in November for Teen Mom OG. But even though the girls wish it weren’t the case, it also means that their baby daddies will also be returning!
Maci Bookout has a much more stable life than she did when she first filmed for 16 and Pregnant. She’s now married to Taylor McKinney, has three children, and is even starting her own clothing line with her husband. But that doesn’t mean that her first son’s father, Ryan Edwards, is totally out of the picture.
Unfortunately, substance abuse and addiction is a common theme amongst the Teen Mom cast members, and Ryan has been battling his own addictions for a long time. Now it seems that Maci has finally had enough of the way that Ryan’s health has affected their son Bentley, and she’s finally calling him out on it.
The truth is, Maci has no control over what her ex Ryan does with his life, but when his actions begin to affect their son Bentley, she’s not the type to lay down and take it.
Ryan’s substance abuse and addiction has been a controversial and prevalent part of the show. In a tearful episode, Bookout opened up to Amber and Catelynn about her concerns about Ryan’s life. She said that she has to live in constant fear that Ryan might do some permanent damage with his addiction. She said, “I wonder if today’s gonna be the day that Ryan does something that he can’t come back from.”
This culminated in one of the most controversial Teen Mom moments that ever aired: Ryan driving while high on Xanax. He and Mackenzie Standifer were on the way to their wedding when it became clear that Ryan was intoxicated. Then, in a clip that many viewers found very disturbing, Ryan began to doze off while driving down the highway.
Now, it seems that the mother-of-three has had enough of this extremely dangerous (and illegal) behavior, especially where it concerns Bentley.
The next season of Teen Mom OG is set to premiere on November 27, and the recently released trailer has revealed a taste of the drama to come. One of the most tense moments comes when Maci demands Ryan pass a drug test.
On an outing with Bentley and Ryan, his baby mama looks him in the eye and says: “As his father, you have to pass a drug test, and we are going to be there.”
Maci isn’t the only cast member who has to deal with a drug addicted baby daddy. She has that in common with Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska. In fact, these two were able to discuss this difficulty during the most recent reunion filming.
“Dr. Drew brought up Adam’s drug use and [Chelsea] said she used to get texts that people would see him out, but that she doesn’t get them anymore because when you’re on drugs you kind of are a recluse,” an insider told Radar Online.
That’s when Maci took to the stage, according to the insider, and the two had a chance to “talk about having a baby daddy who is on drugs.”
“Maci says she doesn’t know what’s up with Ryan anymore because they don’t talk,” the insider said. “Her relationship with his parents Jen and Larry isn’t the same because they feel betrayed by her outing Ryan’s drug use.”
Now, it looks like Ryan will be forced to clean up, or it may affect his relationship with his son.
