Part two of the Teen Mom OG reunion special will air on MTV this Monday, and judging from a newly released preview clip, it’s a doozy.
The trouble began when Pinsky pointed out that by failing to properly follow his doctor’s orders Edwards is putting himself at risk for a relapse.
Standifer talked over Pinsky for a few awkward seconds before the doctor attempted to bring some order to the conversation by asking, “Are you ready to listen to me?”
“Excuse me? No, I’m not,” Mackenzie replied, dialing the sass factor up to 11.
Drew pressed on because allowing himself to be shut down by an irritable 21-year-old would make a pretty crappy therapist.
He reminds Mackenzie that in his ongoing custody battle with Maci Bookout, Ryan has claimed that he’s currently being treated for his addiction.
By refusing to take his Suboxone as prescribed, however, Ryan is being negligent about his treatment.
Pinsky pointed out that as a result, he can’t, in good conscience, advise Maci to trust her child to Ryan’s care.
“Then, I could argue to Maci that he’s under doctor’s prescription, he’s following it to the letter and you can check with that doctor and that doctor will take responsibility for any problems,” Dr. Drew explained.
“But if [Ryan’s] taking [the medication] ad-lib, I can’t vouch for that.”
That’s when Mackenzie clapped back with an argument that makes it sound as though she doesn’t fully understand whats being said here:
“I don’t think you can vouch for anything Ryan does, honestly,” Standifer snapped.
“But that’s just my opinion.”
We can see why Mackenzie saw fit to question Pinsky’s judgment.
After all, what could a medical professional who specializes in addiction possibly have to say about Ryan’s substance abuse issues?
Going forward, she might want to be a little nicer to old Doc Drew, however.
After all, when she inevitably divorces Edwards, she’s gonna want Pinsky on her side.
