Teen Mom OG Recap: Ryan Edwards Gets Married! Again!

On Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12, a couple prepared to tie the knot, but that wasn’t the only notable event on the MTV hit.

Not by a long shot.

Would Farrah’s latest altercation with producers spell the end of her time on the show on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12?

Would Tyler man up and get his father into rehab? Would Amber be able to handle the bombshell she had to drop on Leah?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you recall that Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s first wedding day was … unusual.

They married in a parking lot with only his parents on hand, with Ryan having driven there high as a kite no less. On camera.

Obviously, they still have plenty of issues and obstacles to overcome, but this time, at least there was no wedding controversy.

Fans may be a little upset, though, by the fact that before the ceremony, Ryan Edwards was seen drinking with his groomsmen.

Harmless? Perhaps, but for a man with obvious addiction issues, it’s sure to raise red flags with some viewers, for good reason.

Asked about his wedding vows, Ryan told his friends, “I don’t care, it’s not like it’s got to be perfect.” They were pretty close.

“I promise to always love you, be your best friend, I promise to be faithful and always be there for you,” he told Mackenzie.

Standifer had a prepared speech. Slightly awkward.

Later, Ryan admitted to his wife that he’s drunk; Edwards and Standifer proceeded to take shots and talk about their financial situation.

Ryan’s father then gave a speech that made him cry.

That was pretty emotional, as was the scene last night were Tyler Baltierra’s long-troubled father, Butch, finally enters rehab.

Butch cried when he learned that his son had come up with the exorbitant amount of money to cover the treatment, in full.

At the rehab center, one of the administrators says to Tyler that it’s probably been a long time since he’s really met his dad.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met him,” he responds.

For his part, Butch confessed that he’s done “a lot” of cocaine and crack in life and was on drugs as recently as “3-4 days ago.”

Terrifying. Speaking of family drama, Farrah Abraham put her differences with her mother aside to celebrate Debra‘s birthday.

At least she tried. Could it possibly last?

Deb pleads for Farrah to attend her wedding, which Sophia finally decides she’s allowed to, so that’s a step in the right direction.

However, after Abraham’s “vaginal rejuvenation” (seriously), Deb was left waiting in the car for a half hour as Farrah got ready.

When she finally got in the car, Farrah proceeded to freak the f–k out on a producer for reasons that weren’t entirely clear.

While Farrah’s insane treatment of producers has been well documented, it’s never not amazing to watch it play out on TV.

“If you can’t get along with anyone or try to or get in my way of how I live my f–king life,” she says, “then do not work with me.”

“F–k you and your excuses.”

Farrah Abraham, ladies and gentlemen. Never a dull moment or an episode that passes without a complete meltdown.


Ryan Edwards: Off the Wagon After Months of Sobriety!

Dennis Edwards: The Temptations’ Lead Singer Dead at 74

The Temptations were a legendary music group, and you can hear one of their classic hits below.

Their R&B vocals have won them Grammys and have gotten them inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Sadly, The Temptations' lead singer, Dennis Edwards, has passed away today at age 74.

Signing with Motown Records, The Temptations were pioneers in the genre of psychedelic soul as well as for soul and R&B.

The group produced classic hits such as:

"Cloud Nine," back in 1968.

"Papa Was a Rollin' Stone."

"Ball of Confusion."

"I Can't Get Next to You."

The lineup of The Temptations changed over the years, which is not uncommon for group acts that last for decades.

But Dennis Edwards was the on-again, off-again lead vocalist in the group.

His first stretch lasted from 1968 to 1977.

Even after that first departure, he would return and sing more within the group's changing roster, returning in the early 1980s.

His contributions to the group as lead singer are significant.

Upon signing with the group, he was credited with heralding a shift to more blues-oriented music that confronted relevant social issues — a change from the previous lead singer's falsetto.

His overall contributions to music as a genre cannot be measured.

TMZ reports that Dennis Edwards has passed away in Chicago.

The family has confirmed this to multiple news outlets, though they have not yet chosen to divulge his cause of death.

As we mentioned, Dennis Edwards was 74 years old.

He was born on February 3, 1943 in Birmingham, Alabama.

This Saturday would have been his 75th birthday.

Dennis Edwards' fans will remember him for the grit of his voice.

He is treasured for injecting The Temptations' music with new vivacity.

It's worth noting that every album that the group produced until 1976 charted into the Top 40, with many making it into the Top 10.

His voice was sampled by other music legends like Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. As we said, his impact on the arts was significant.

We wish his loved ones the best. May he rest in peace.

Mackenzie Standifer: I’m Afraid Ryan Edwards Will Relapse!

If you’re a fan of Teen Mom 2, then you’re no doubt aware of Ryan Edwards recent struggles with addiction.

Edwards hit rock bottom before an audience of millions when he passed out while driving to his own wedding, a shocking scene that was captured by MTV cameras.

Shortly after exchanging vows with Mackenzie Standifer, Edwards checked into rehab, and he’s reportedly been sober ever since.

But that doesn’t mean the early months of his marriage have been entirely smooth sailing.

On this week’s episode of TM2, Standifer opened up to a friend, revealing that in some ways, her life was easier when her husband was in rehab, as she knew that he couldn’t get acquire drugs.

When Edwards returned home, Standifer says, the fear that he might disappear on a bender became overpowering.

“When Ryan was in rehab it was easy,” she told her friend.

“I knew he couldn’t get anything. He was safe. When we came home life punched us in the face. If he wanted it he could go get it. It’s scary.” 

Mackenzie went on to reveal that Edwards’ short temper has also been a constant source of stress in her marriage:

“You can be angry, but you can’t talk to me like that,” she said.

“This is hard for me too. I knew it would be hard, but I didn’t know it would be like this. It’s stress all the time. I’m so exhausted. I’m sad and depressed and angry.”

Clearly in despair from the stress of a “honeymoon period” marred by the ravages of addiction, Mackenzie complained that marriage to Edwards has exacted a profound emotional toll.

“I didn’t know it would be like this. It’s stress all the time. I’m so exhausted. I’m sad and depressed and angry.”

Needless to say, the Ryan and Mackenzie are enduring an incredibly trying time.

However, many viewers stated on social media that their fears were somewhat allayed by a touching scene in which Edwards expressed his gratitude to Standifer for essentially saving his life:

“It’s disgusting I let myself go like that,” he told his wife.

“It’s just pathetic. I’m so glad I listened to you and got help. You’ve been very, very understanding. I couldn’t have done this without you. Is there anything I could do to help you through this?”

Clearly, Ryan and Mackenzie have a long way in getting their marriage to a place where they’re both at their happiest and healthiest.

But the good news is, it seems that they’re both willing to put in the necessary work.

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer: Trying for a Baby?!

Hasn’t it been such a joy having Mackenzie Standifer on Teen Mom OG?

Not because she’s like some great person or anything like that, it’s just that she’s been making for some really, really great TV.

She’s been in Ryan Edwards’ life for a little over a year now, and that may sound crazy, considering all they’ve been through in that time, but it’s true.

She filed for divorce from her first husband in the summer of 2016, the divorce was finalized that winter, and a few days later, Ryan proposed.

Then, though they’d been planning a big wedding for November, they got married in an awkward, rushed ceremony last May so that, as Mackenzie explained, they’d have some sort of advantage in Ryan’s custody case for Bentley.

It didn’t make sense then, it doesn’t make sense now, but that’s what happened.

They got married in a parking lot down by the river, Ryan was high out of his mind, and very shortly after the wedding, he went off to rehab.

Even though he’d been doing heroin, he felt comfortable leaving rehab early, and a couple of months after that he was caught talking to other women on Tinder.

And by “talking,” we mean “propositioning and asking very graphic questions about their genitals.”

Still, after all that, Mackenzie stood by him, and they even went ahead and had that big wedding they’d planned for November,

With Ryan, we’ve seen him on the show for nearly a decade now, so we know that he doesn’t usually feel too many feelings, and he rarely seems to care about anyone but himself.

So his reasoning for staying with Mackenzie … well, it’s pretty whatever.

But Mack is new to the show, so we don’t know nearly as much about her. We know that she’s 21 years old and she already has a son and she’s already on her second marriage.

What’s her motivation for sticking with Ryan? Does she really love his immature ass that much? Is she just trying to get that Teen Mom money and/or fame?

It’s hard to tell, but one thing is for sure: whatever she’s doing, she’s really going for it.

And what better way to cement your questionable relationship with a reality star than by having a baaaaaaby?!

She hasn’t come out with a pregnancy announcement just yet, but Mackenzie has come out with approximately a million ads on Instagram.

It’s starting to look like she’ll advertise the hell out of anything and everything, and her latest product is some sort of fancy scientific bracelet.

In the caption, she explained that “One of my resolutions for 2018 is to become more in tune with my body,” and that she’s going to get that done with this bracelet.

She said that it “works while you sleep to gather insights on your monthly cycle, and tells you when your 5 most fertile days are.”‘

This way, she added, “We’ll be ready to go if we ever decide to try for Baby #3!”

Girl. Girl.

Suspiciously enough, this isn’t the first time she’s hinted at having a baby with Ryan.

In a Q&A she posted on her website last month, she wrote that “We both want ONE more. God’s plan is good enough for us. We will have one in His timing!”

Usually when people say things about leaving their family planning up to God, they mean that they aren’t using any kind of birth control, and whatever happens, happens.

That’s not to say that this is what Mackenzie is trying to communicate with all of this, but considering everything …

Well, we’ll just say that we wouldn’t be surprised to hear a pregnancy announcement from these two sometime soon.


Mackenzie Standifer: I Saved Ryan Edwards’ Life!!!

Oh, that Mackenzie Standifer … has Teen Mom ever had such a universally hated cast member?

Well, there was the complete douchebaggery that was Matt Baier. And most people have pretty strong feelings against Farrah Abraham.

Mackenzie's husband, Ryan Edwards, has never been that likable himself.

But still, there's just something special about Mackenzie, something that makes her so very easy to despise.

And she's making that even easier with a new blog she wrote about Ryan's addiction …

1. Suspicious …

Mackenzie edwards
If you’ve watched Teen Mom at all in the past few years, you’ve probably noticed that Ryan’s seemed a little bit … off. From his bugged out eyes to his disappearances to “the bank” for hours every day, something just wasn’t right with him.

2. The Big Reveal

Turns out, that “something” was drugs.

3. Understandable Tears

Maci bookout cries
As Maci revealed in an episode last season, Ryan had been struggling with addiction. She didn’t give out any details, but it was obvious that Ryan was into something bad.

4. Heroin?

At one point last season, Maci said that a friend of Ryan’s had texted her and let her know that things had somehow gotten even worse for him, and though again she didn’t get into specifics, the news obviously shook her up. Then, in this scene from the season finale, fans spotted what looked like track marks on Ryan’s arms.

5. What a Nightmare

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
After fans spotted those alleged track marks, they saw Ryan nod off while driving himself and Mackenzie to their parking lot wedding. It was definitely one of the most shocking moments in the history of Teen Mom, and it made it clear that Ryan had a big, big problem.

6. Yep, Heroin

Ryan edwards closeup
And on an episode this season, it was confirmed that Ryan was doing heroin, so there’s that tragic little tidbit.
