Maci Bookout on Mackenzie Standifer: She is SO SHADY!

You'll never believe this, but we have another not-so-flattering story about Mackenzie Standifer to share today.

Except you'll definitely believe it, because out of all the many, many stories of Mackenzie we've shared in the past several months, literally none of them have been flattering.

It's just that she's so … what's the word … snake-like? Manipulative? Untrustworthy? Terrible?

It's hard to say, but the point is that Mackenzie is Teen Mom OG's biggest villain right now, and that point is proven yet again in this sneak peek for next week's episode.

In this clip, Maci is driving around town with a couple of friends, and she tells them that she just got an invitation to Ryan and Mackenzie's wedding in the mail.

"I thought that already happened," one friend says — and we can't help but detect a little bit of shade at the reference to the parking lot wedding of the century.

Maci says that while they are already married, they're planning on having an actual wedding, which was the one that took place in November.

But that's not exactly what she wanted to discuss with her pals.

"The wedding invitation is only addressed for myself and Bentley," she says. "Like it says Maci Bookout, not Maci McKinney, and Bentley."

And that's not cool.

We use Maci's maiden name because that's how people know her — like, nobody is out there Googling "Maci McKinney."

But obviously Mackenzie has a close relationship with Maci as the stepmother of her son, so there's no chance she wouldn't know the proper way to address her.

And to leave out her husband and her two other children on the invitation?

Come on, Mackenzie. Come on.

Her friend asks who she thinks addressed the invitations, and she points out that it's definitely "a girl's handwriting."

But instead of making a big deal about the slight, Maci says that she's just going to RSVP to the invitation with her married name and her actual number of guests.

Her friend suggests that she respond to the invitation with "not attending," and she laughs and admits that she wishes she could do that.

Who could blame her for not looking forward to that mess?

The clip ends with Maci's friend saying "shame on" Ryan and Mackenzie for this petty little move — and if it wasn't a petty move, then it certainly was a thoughtless one.

Check out the drama in the video below:

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 McKee Reveals Mother’s Heartbreaking Brain Cancer Diagnosis

You probably know Mackenzie McKee best for her time on Teen Mom 3, and for her subsequent wild and crazy antics.

But today, Mackenzie is in the news for a different, much more upsetting reason …

It’s because she just revealed that her mother, Angie Douthit, has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

It sounds like the family just got the news on Tuesday — that night, Mackenzie tweeted “Haven’t cried this hard in over ten years. By far the worst night of my life.”

A few hours later, she asked “all prayer warriors” to “please pray for my mom.”

“What we thought was bronchitis turned out to be 3 masses on her brain, 1 large imone in her lungs and multiple blood clots,” she explained.

“We are in shock and devastated. She has brain surgery tomorrow. I’m sick. I’m so sick and want to wake up from this nightmare.”

Yesterday, Angie did have the brain surgery, but TMZ reports that things are even worse than they previously thought.

Doctors found two more lesions in her brain, as well as multiple masses in her lungs. She’s been diagnosed with stage four brain cancer.

The family has made a GoFundMe account to help with the costs of treatment — remember, although Mackenzie was a Teen Mom, the girls from Teen Mom 3 only filmed for one season, and they never made the money the other moms did.

In the information for the fundraiser, Angie’s family explains that her tumors “cover almost the entire brain,” and the cancer “started in her lungs with several masses and spread to her brain.”

“Angie has always been the healthiest person,” she “doesn’t smoke and never did,” and she also abstains from alcohol, eats organic, and runs marathons, “so this has come as a complete shock to the family.”

In an update, it was revealed that Angie will get an MRI and a bone scan today, along with a few other tests, to determine the course of treatments.

In another heartbreaking update, Angie herself wrote that her family had given her running gear for Christmas, and “Since I can’t run right now, I challenge all of u to run for me tomorrow believing that I will soon get to run and wear my new things.”

Yesterday, Mackenzie shared a collage of photos of her mother on Instagram, calling her “the most amazing woman I know.”

“She taught me everything I know. She is the only reason I am the woman I am today. I love you Mom. I’m devastated, I’m angry, I’m shook, I can’t breathe.”

“You are everything,” she finished. “Please pray.”

In a statement she gave to Us Weekly, Mackenzie echoed the information on Angie’s GoFundMe page, saying “She is the healthiest person I know. Eats healthier than me. Always organic.”

“Doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink, she is a school teacher so she has no money. She runs marathons and works out two to three times a day. This does not run in our family.”

“I am so sad,” she continued. “I can barely breathe. I can not lose her.”

“She did ask that I blog her whole journey and make a documentary in case something does happen we will always have that. I know God will use her to speak to others.”

Mackenzie does seem intent on documenting everything so far — her last update was a couple of hours ago on Twitter, where she wrote “Does your body ever run out of tears?”

Best wishes for her and her family as they go through this tragic ordeal.


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

Ryan edwards on teen mom o g
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?

Ryan edwards track mark photos
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.

Mackenzie Standifer Goes on INSANE Rant Against MTV!

So hey, how fun is this new season of Teen Mom OG?!

We're finally getting to see Amber Portwood realize how awful Matt Baier has always been, and it's nice to see Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra come into their own as business owners.

But it's truly been just the biggest pleasure to see more of Mackenzie Standifer. Because the girl is wild.

Ryan Edwards' new wife is bringing some delightful drama to the show, and she's been so bizarre and delusional and unintentionally hilarious since she's been on the scene.

Right now though, she's really outdoing herself with a new, sassy little entry she just posted on her blog …

1. Oh, Mackenzie …

Mackenzie standifer picture
Mackenzie hasn’t been on Teen Mom OG all that long — after all, it’s barely been a year since she began dating Ryan Edwards. But in the short time she’s been on the show, she’s really made her mark.

2. First Impressions

First impressions
At first, many viewers thought this girl would be good for Ryan. She’s so young, but she seems much older, and lots of people thought she had her life together. Those people were wrong.

3. Yikes

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer photo
As we saw more of her on the show, it started getting weird how she’d never say anything about his increasinly bizarre behavior. Then, on the last season finale, she went and made herself into the biggest Teen Mom villain since Matt Baier.

4. A Wedding to Remember

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
While driving to their wedding, Ryan began nodding off behind the wheel. Instead of instructing him to pull over, Mackenzie helped him steer, and then she concerned herself with disabling the cameras in the car while asking him if he’d been taking Xanax again. She seemed angry at him instead of concerned, and then after all that she went ahead and married him in that parking lot while his mother sobbed through the ceremony.

5. Digging the Hole Deeper

Mackenzie edwards
As if all that wasn’t bad enough, she went on to make a fool out of herself at the reunion show. She blamed Maci Bookout for Ryan’s drug use, and she actually claimed that she had no idea that he’d been using drugs until that fateful drive to the wedding. Yep, this girl is remarkably unlikable.

6. Ugh

Ryan and mackenzie edwards
The current season picked up at the reunion, and we got to see Amber call Mackenzie a “f-cking c-nt,” which was cute. We’re also seeing Ryan fresh out of rehab, and it’s been interesting, to say the least. Mostly because Mackenzie has just been the absolute worst.

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer: We’re Gonna Have a Baby!

Don't you just love hearing details about the strange, strange couple that is Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer?

Of course you do — it's human nature to feel compelled to look at a train wreck, and if Ryan and Mack aren't a train wreck, then what are they?

Somehow, someway, they managed to make themselves into one of the most hated couples in the Teen Mom franchise, and that's really saying something.

So hey, why not throw a new baby in the mix?!

1. A Love Story

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer photo
Ryan and Mackenzie have been together since sometime last fall. That’s when she was introduced on Teen Mom OG, and we know they got engaged last December. At first, if you’ll remember, many people thought that Mackenzie seemed sweet, stable, and like she’d be a good influence on Ryan. And those people were wrong.

2. Worse and Worse …

Ryan edwards and mackenzie standifer pic
On the last OG season, we saw them planning their wedding, and we also saw Ryan continue to be just high out of his mind. Maci confirmed that he was doing drugs, but Ryan and Mackenzie didn’t mention anything of the sort until the season finale.

3. A Parking Lot Wedding to Remember

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
For some reason concerning Bentley’s custody that still doesn’t really make sense, Ryan and Mackenzie decided to get married in a quick little ceremony in a parking lot in May instead of waiting for their planned wedding in November. Ryan drove them both to the wedding, and it wasn’t a great time.

4. Nope Nope Nope

Mackenzie standifer and ryan edwards
He was nodding off behind the wheel, so much that Mackenzie had to help him steer. Instead of instructing him to pull over, she concerned herself with turning of MTV’s cameras in the car, and we heard her ask him if he’d been taking Xanax “again.”

5. What a Fairytale

Ryan edwards wedding photo
Even though Ryan could have easily killed them on the drive over, and even though their only guests were Ryan’s devastated parents, they got married anyway. The whole thing was shocking and depressing and just very, very bad. Some have even called it the darkest moment in Teen Mom history.

6. Off to Rehab

Ryan edwards and mackenzie standifer photo
On the reunion special for that season, Mackenzie claimed that that fateful wedding drive was the very first time she ever noticed Ryan’s drug use, and that she shipped him off to rehab the very next day. It’s a little hard to believe, especially considering that thousands of strangers noticed his drug use at least a year before, but hey, sure.

Mackenzie Standifer: It’s Maci Bookout’s Fault Ryan Edwards Did Drugs!

On last season's Teen Mom: OG finale, Ryan Edwards hit rock bottom in shocking fashion, passing out behind the wheel while driving to his own wedding.

Shortly thereafter, Edwards checked into rehab, and he's reportedly been clean and sober ever since.

Mackenzie Standifer Gushes About Ryan Edwards Wedding: No One Passed Out!

Earlier this week, Mackenzie Standifer and Ryan Edwards got married with dozens of their closest friend and family members 

Now, you may be yelling at your computer or mobile device, “Hold up a second, THG. Ryan and Mackenzie got married back in May. It was on TV, ya dummies!”

To which we would reply, “You’re right, but there’s really no need for name-calling. Sheesh.”

The couple did tie the knot several months ago, but if you caught the Teen Mom: OG season finale in which the ceremony was featured, then you know it was a joyless affair, and everyone involved would probably prefer to forget about it.

Things got off to a rocky start when Ryan passed out while driving to his own wedding, and, well … they didn’t get much better from there.

Fortunately, Edwards checked into rehab shortly thereafter, and six months later, he’s reportedly still clean and sober.

So Ryan and Mackenzie decided to call a mulligan and give this whole “getting married” business a second shot.

Needless to say, the results were much better the second time around.

“It was amazing, it was the best day ever,” she told us exclusively.

“Everything went so smoothly. It could not have gone any better.” 

Despite a dire forecast, Standifer says, it was nothing but blue skies 

“It was supposed to rain, but it held off,” she explained. “It was just so beautiful.”

Most importantly, the nelwyweds’ kids from previous relationships enjoyed themselves:

“They were so cute,” Mackenzie gushed.

“Hudson, at the end of the ceremony, mopped up the floor with himself—he was rolling on the ground, just like a typical 3-year-old. And Bentley looked so handsome. He looked just like his dad.”

As further proof that all is well between Edwards and his famous ex following a succession of rough patches, Maci Bookout was in attendance, and reportedly, she was all smiles.

“[She] was there. Everything was fine,” Mackenzie said.

“We talked a little bit, and she got along with all my bridesmaids.”

So there you have it.’

In the end, love and rehab conquered all, and Ryan and Mackenzie danced into the night, both of them fully conscious.

Or so we assume.
