‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Maci Bookout Vents Frustrations After Ryan Edwards Jail Release: ‘I’m Not Getting Involved’
On the new season of Teen Mom OG, mom of three Maci Bookout has been dealing with the drama surrounding her ex and father of her oldest son, Ryan Edwards. Ryan was recently released from jail after spending three months behind bars and, on Monday night’s episode, Maci made it clear she was disappointed with the way Ryan and his family handled explaining the situation to her and Ryan’s 10-year-old son, Bentley.
According to Too Fab, upon Ryan’s release from jail, he didn’t want to talk about the situation with anyone, including MTV. Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Edwards, and family opened up, and explained what had happened during his time behind bars to make him close up.
“Two people died while he was in jail. His buddy got stabbed 10 times before he left. He saw one person get beat up so bad there was blood everywhere,” Ryan’s mother, Jen Edwards, explained.
His wife, Mackenzie, revealed that her husband doesn’t want to leave the house, either.
After his release from jail, Edwards and Maci’s son, Bentley, visited his dad and grandparents. Maci was hopeful the situation would be handled in a certain way, and that they would explain to Bentley what had happened. However, Maci does not apparently feel the situation has been dealt with appropriately.
She explained she was “really disappointed” Ryan hadn’t addressed the situation with Bentley, and went on to speak with one of her friends to vent her frustrations.
“I’m not getting involved. I wanted to do my part and all it got me was in the devil’s den, I’m not doing it,” Maci said. She explained that Ryan and his family think that everything should be “perfectly fine” after he returns home from rehab stints and jail stays.
“I’m over the bulls***, I’m so over the bulls***,” she said.
“I’m tired of crying with my soon-to-be 11-year-old son whose dad doesn’t have the balls to own up to everything that he has caused. Not to me, I don’t give a f*** if he apologizes to me, but he needs to apologize to Bentley if thinks there is ever hope for a relationship.”
Maci has been open about her frustrations this season, not just with Ryan, but also with the way her story is being portrayed on Teen Mom OG. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Maci took to Twitter to speak out after a recent episode of the show, revealing that she didn’t feel her story was being “accurately portrayed.” She seemed frustrated that more aspects of her life weren’t being shown, but rather that her storyline seemed to revolve around Ryan and his problems.
Along with Bentley, Maci is also the mother of two children with her husband, Taylor McKinney. The mom of three often shares photos of her kids on social media to keep fans updated on her family life.
Ryan and Mackenzie married in 2017. Shortly after their marriage, Ryan was admitted to rehab. The couple announced they were expecting a child in 2018 and, in October, Mackenzie gave birth to their son, Jagger. At the time, Ryan was away for another rehab stint.
New episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
