Ryan Edwards is in the hot seat after his ex, Maci Bookout, said he’s doing drugs. Another ex-girlfriend alleges he’s cheating on his wife.
A Coparent Showdown
Edwards and Bookout could barely hash out their differences on Part 1 of MTV’s Teen Mom OG reunion Monday, April 16. Bookout, who has a child with Edwards, revealed she is convinced he is still struggling with drug abuse. Bookout’s attempts to have Edwards take a drug test during the season was a major topic of conversation at the reunion special.
Edwards maintained that Bookout is lying and refused to sit on the stage with her.
His drama with Bookout isn’t the only reason Edwards made headlines this week. Edwards, who is married to Mackenzie Standifer, has also been accused by an ex-girlfriend of cheating on his wife.
Does Ryan Want That Old Thing Back?
Shelby Woods hopped on Twitter to hint that Edwards wants to get back with her.
“Sometimes I just wanna be like, ‘Hey sis, your husband is still hitting me up,’” said Woods. “Buuuuut then I remember how delusional you are so I don’t waste my time.”
Woods, who dated Edwards roughly four years ago, tweeted the message amid speculation that Standifer is completely oblivious to her husband’s struggle with drugs. Edwards was arrested last month and charged with heroin possession. Standifer insisted that all was well between them and reportedly didn’t want to look at the reality of her husband’s true struggles.
“Mackenzie is in complete abject denial about Ryan’s drug addiction and issues surrounding how very, very serious it truly is,” an insider said. “Mackenzie only wants to focus on having his baby and seems to be hoping that this will help him to be inspired to live a clean and sober life.”
Edwards said he wanted a separation from Standifer, who is currently pregnant, on the show's season finale.
More 'Teen Mom OG' Drama
Edwards wasn’t the only cast member to face lots of drama during the reunion. Amber Portwood called into the reunion via Skype and opened up about her split with Matt Baier before she raved about her new guy, and father of her unborn child, Andrew Glennon.
Catelyn Lowell, who said she is back at a treatment facility for depression, and Bookout also had a few words for their infamous former co-star Farrah Abraham. Bookout was happy to do the reunion without Farrah, and Lowell said she’s confident Abraham is exactly where she’s always wanted to be in life after being fired.
Part 2 of the Teen Mom OG reunion airs on MTV Monday at 9 p.m. ET.
