Mackenzie Standifer: Teen Mom OG Is Fake AF!

Back in July, Mackenzie Standifer and Ryan Edwards quit Teen Mom OG.

Or so they say.

All these weeks later it's still not totally clear if the troubled couple quit the show, or if they were fired at the behest of Ryan's baby mama, Mackenzie Standifer.

Whatever the case, Ryan and Mackenzie are royally pissed off at the network that made them famous, and they recently accused MTV of playing a dirty trick on TMOG viewers.

1. The Not-So-Happy Couple

Ryan and Mackenzie are MTV stars no longer. But that doesn’t mean they’re through offering their thoughts on the network and its practices.

2. Hard Times

Ryan and Mackenzie were already having a rough go of it when they were struck by news that their time as reality stars had come to an end.

4. The Low Point

5. Maci’s Claim

According to Maci, Ryan threatened to murder her husband, Taylor McKinney, and she had legitimate reason to fear for her family’s safety.

6. Open and Shut

A judge agreed with her … and so did MTV. The network allegedly fired Ryan and Mackenzie as a result of his ongoing troubles. And now, the couple is striking back …

Mackenzie Standifer Wants to Plan Your Wedding For Some Reason

Last month, in news that was both shocking yet not at all shocking, we learned that Ryan Edwards is leaving Teen Mom OG.

That doesn’t mean he’s leaving the public eye, though, because this is 2018, and fool’s gotta support his kid(s) somehow.

Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, are expecting their first child together (it will be the second for both of them overall).

What would’ve been a heartwarming storyline on the MTV reality show that made him famous won’t be happening, though.

Edwards’ ex, Maci Bookout, reportedly demanded he be nixed from the show because of his struggles with drug addiction.

Maci, who cited the potential impact on their son Bentley, even said she wishes Ryan were still in jail … where he’s safer.

The sad part is she may have a point.

After Edwards’ latest arrest, the 30-year-old’s capacity to handle parenting (or just life, in general) has never been more in doubt.

Being out of work with a baby on the way and looking at prison time for violating probation is not a good position, to say the least.

Well, Mackenzie is – despite shady Ryan’s Tinder history and heroin use – trying to make lemonade out of her lemon of a husband.

She’s moving on to a new career, announced on an official website this week, as “MACKENZIE EDWARDS WEDDING AND EVENTS.”

That’s right, she’s a wedding planner!!

What are you waiting for, couples? She’s currently booking weddings for the fall of 2018, and is ready to make your dreams a reality.

“My name is Mackenzie, and I love all things wedding and events,” Mackenzie says on her official site, Mackenzie Edwards (dot) org.

“My personal mission is to see your dreams come to fruition,” Standifer says, acknowledging that this is no easy task!

“Sometimes it can be hard to take all of the thoughts, dreams, and visions in your head and turn them into a reality.”

“That is where I step in.”

“From start to finish, whatever your needs may be, I will be here to help and guide you every step of the way,” she adds.

“The stress of planning your own wedding can take a toll on ones self and really take away from the whole experience.”

“With my help, we can partner together to create you the wedding of your dreams and alleviate the stress factor.”

Definitely sounds like a good pitch … but how’s she going to do that with a baby at home? Or after she gives birth for that matter??


“When I am not compulsively planning, you can find me hanging out with my family at our fave hot spot, the lake,” she says.

“I have a family FULL of boys (including the dog) so being able to express my femme, creative side is such a breath of fresh air.”

Ranging in prices from $ 150 to $ 1,500, Mackenzie has what it takes to meet your needs at any price point. Super convenient.

For the premium rate, you get two in-person 1-hour consults (up to a maximum of four) plus unlimited contact via email/text & phone.


Weddings are stressful, sure, but no one needs 24-7 access to Mackenzie. Even Ryan needs to go on Tinder now and then.

Sorry. We’ll stop, we promise.

Beyond event and rehearsal coordination, venue selection, handling of payments and the like, you get access to her “little black book.”

[We’ll pass on the jokes.]

All in all, you can expect white glove service planning the event of a lifetime … if you think she’s the best person to do the job, of course.

Would you consider hiring Standifer as your wedding planner … especially after the bizarre parking lot wedding she personally had?

Or the fact that she is, you know, involved with Ryan Edwards? That sort of casts a pall over one’s decision-making … just saying.



Mackenzie Standifer: Quit Bullying Me Over Ryan Edwards and KISS MY ASS!

It’s been nearly a week now since Ryan Edwards was arrested, which means he’s spent nearly a week in jail.

It’s been a weird, sad time, right?

There have been conflicting reports about the reason for the arrest, with many reports claiming that he’d been caught with heroin again.

Other reports say that he was taken to jail for violating his probation by missing a court date back in May.

Either way, Ryan violated probation, which isn’t great, considering it’s the second time he’s done so.

Remember, the original arrest for possession of heroin happened last year, and he was placed on probation for a year.

When he was nearly done with that, he was arrested for failing a drug test with heroin in his system, and he was given six more months of probation.

So at this point, it seems pretty clear that probation isn’t working so great, which is probably why he’s being held without bond this time around.

His court date is set for August 6th, so he’ll be hanging out in jail for at least a little while longer.

So what’s his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer, doing until then?

Doing photo shoots and telling off haters, apparently.

Remember earlier this year when she gave her Instagram account to her photographer friend?

She took it back recently, and she’s been sharing some photos of her baby bump, which is getting pretty big now, considering she’s due in October.

It seems like sometime in the past few days, she posed for some photos with her friend.

She shared this one on Instagram:

In her caption, she wrote “She has a kind soul, but a cold [heart emoji].”

Later, she edited it to add “This isn’t a new revelation, I’ve always been the ice queen.”

It’s not hard to figure out why she’s talking like this: a whole, whole lot of Teen Mom OG fans hate her.

A lot.

Some fans hate her so much that they blame her for Ryan’s drug use, because she’s an enabler, see?

She’s also been seen talking trash about Maci Bookout several times on the show, which hasn’t done anything for her popularity, either.

And that’s why the vast majority of the comments on her new post are so negative.

“You know it’s harder to be a bitch than it is to be nice and loving,” someone told her. “It’s nothing to be proud of.”

“Ice queen mom and drug addict convict dad,” another person wrote. “That poor baby.”

One person told her “I hope the father of your child sobers the hell up!”, and another pointed out “your husband is in jail and u taking pictures.”

One of her followers got super direct, telling her “Girl, get your f-cking head out of your ass and grow the f-ck up.”

Finally, Mackenzie’s photographer jumped into the fray to defend her friend, writing “I’d like to meet a single troll on this post who has a job, isn’t an addict themselves, isn’t miserable, and isn’t completely insecure.”

“You all have some major soul/hobby searching to do if putting down a hurting mom to be makes you feel satisfied or content.”

“She might have had TV time,” she continued, “but she is still human trying to figure sh-t out.”

“If you don’t know her personally your comments are baseless and a way to compensate for the sh-t in your own life.”

The friend actually made several comments on the post, and in one she wrote “Mack is one of the most selfless people I know.”

“She sees the best in people and is SO freaking loyal it’s blinding. You don’t know her, and you don’t want to.”

She went on and on about how wonderful Mackenzie is, and how nobody knows the kind of person she truly is, but before too long, Mackenzie herself stepped in to call her off.

“Lol these little phone bullies who have nothing better to do than comment ignorance on a picture can kiss my ass,” she began.

She suggested that the people “drilling me with facts you think you know about myself and my husband” take some time from doing that to “go volunteer your services at your local clinic/hospital/medical school research team.”

“I’m sure they’d be happy to have you and the breadth of your knowledge.”

So much sass in one little comment, right?

We imagine that she’s been hearing and seeing lots and lots of negativity since Ryan’s arrest — and also, you know, for almost the entire time she’s been with Ryan.

It’s understandable that she’d snap after a point.

Hopefully in addition to going off on strangers on social media, she’s also dealing with everything that’s happening in a healthier way.

After all, if Ryan’s going to be staying in jail for a while, she’s going to need to pull everything together to have that baby of theirs.

Best of luck, Mack.


Mackenzie Standifer Shows Off BIG Baby Bump: When is She Due?!

Mackenzie Standifer sure has been busy lately, huh?

Between trying to spin getting fired from Teen Mom OG, taking care of Ryan Edwards, and being very pregnant, she’s definitely had her hands full.

It must be exhausting to have so much drama in your life, but somehow, she’s managed.

Let’s do a quick recap, just for fun, OK?

Last year, we learned that Ryan Edwards was addicted to heroin.

Well, first we learned that he was addicted to something, thanks to some heartbreaking scenes of Maci Bookout on Teen Mom OG.

Fans had suspected that something was up with Ryan for a long, long time because honestly, he’s been filmed looking super, super high for a while now.

And then when we saw him nodding off while driving himself and Mackenzie to their rushed parking lot wedding, it became painfully clear that something was very wrong.

During that terrifying scene, Mackenzie was heard asking Ryan if he’d taken Xanax, but a few months later, after he came back from rehab, he admitted that he’d been shooting up heroin.

Oh, and another thing happened when he came back from rehab: he tried hitting up girls on Tinder for hookups, because that’s something newlyweds do.

Things were weird for a while between him and Mackenzie, or at least they seemed that way on the show, but in January, she became pregnant.

Because hey, why not?

We didn’t hear about the pregnancy until March, when it was discussed on the show, and although it didn’t come up until the last couple of episodes of the season, it was super awkward.

Ryan didn’t seem interested in having another baby at all — at one point, he even told Mackenzie to call him when the kid turned three.

Coincidentally, he was arrested the same week the pregnancy news broke.

He’d violated the parole he’d received from a previous arrest after failing a drug test, and although he didn’t face any real consequences for anything, he and Mackenzie both sort of went into hiding after that.

Until now!

But unless you’re thinking that maybe they’re back in the spotlight for good reasons, don’t get your hopes up — they got back on Instagram and did an interview because they’ve been fired from Teen Mom OG.

According to reports, Maci threatened to quit unless MTV stopped filming them, and not because she was being petty, but because she believes Ryan is still using, and she doesn’t want their son to be able to see footage of that anymore.

It seems like there was a bit of time before MTV decided what to do, and during that time they hired Bristol Palin to replace Maci.

But eventually, they decided to stick with their OG golden girl, and last week, they informed Ryan and Mackenzie that they were out.

As Ryan explained it, “They didn’t want to see another recovering addict storyline. So they’re writing us out of the show right now and making it seem like we dipped out on our baby, on Bentley and on everyone.”

“And that’s just not the case.”

In addition to making statements about how wonderful everything is (and how wrong Maci is), they’ve also been very active on Instagram.

Ryan’s been rambling about how we’ll all learn the truth soon, and Mackenzie’s been sharing updates on her pregnancy.

And yesterday, she shared a rare full-body bump pic!

A lot of people don’t like Mackenzie because they think she’s manipulative and mean and all sorts of bad things, but she looks amazing here, right?

She’s also looking pretty big — she’s more than halfway through her pregnancy already!

Ryan has said that she’s due in October, and sources have claimed that her exact due date is October 16th, so we’ve got less than three months to go before a new Edwards baby is born.

They’re having a boy, and though they haven’t announced a name yet, a few reports have stated that they’ll name him Jagger.

We’re still nervous about all of this, because it’s hard to be excited for a pregnancy when the father is as big a mess as Ryan is, but let’s hope for the best, OK?


Mackenzie Standifer Opens Up: Will She Divorce Ryan Edwards?!

For the past four months, rumors of Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer getting divorced have been circulating non-stop.

Ryan has given Mackenzie ample reason to leave his ass, and when she took a break from social media earlier this year, many took it as a sign that she had chosen to quietly end her marriage.

Ryan has cheated on Mackenzie; he's been arrested; he's stalked and harassed his ex — all in the past six months.

Standifer is notoriously shy of the spotlight, so it was widely assumed she had simply chosen to disappear from the spotlight while she and Ryan ironed out the terms of their divorce.

Now, however, she's back on Instagram — and fans are more than a little surprised by what she's been up to:

1. Standifer By Her Man

Mackenzie is doing her best to make her marriage work these days. And fans think she’s out of her mind for giving Ryan yet another chance.

2. Return of the Mack

6. High Hopes

“Family,” Mackenzie captioned the pic, complete with heart emojis. “It means everything.” Certainly sound like she’s optimistic about her relationship! But it’s important to remember why fans are so skeptical …

Mackenzie Standifer Posts Baby Bump Pic Following Mysterious Social Media Hiatus

Back in May, Mackenzie Standifer disappeared from social media.

Her reasons were obvious, of course.

Standifer's husband, Ryan Edwards, has been involved in just about every sort of scandal imaginable in the past few months.

The downward spiral began when Edwards got arrested several months ago, and it's continued in shocking fashion ever since.

At a certain point, Mackenzie probably got sick of dealing with a new controversy every time she logged in.

Fans are happy to see Standifer back on Instagram — but they still have a lot of questions about her absence.

1. Before the Fall

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
There was a time when Mackenzie and Ryan actually appeared to have a happy marriage. That didn’t last long.

2. A Rocky Start

Things got off to a bad start when Ryan got so high on his wedding day that he passed out while driving to the church.

3. Turning It Around?

Shortly thereafter, Ryan checked into rehab, and it briefly looked as though he was committed to making his marriage work.

4. Worse By the Day

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Ryan had been using a dating app to help him find suitable cheating partners.

5. Bad Timing

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer photo
All of this came on the heels of news that Standifer is pregnant with Ryan’s baby. It will be the second child for both partners, but their first as a couple.

6. The Long Goodbye

Like we said, it’s not hard to see why Mackennzie needed a break from social media — but we’re having a hard time understanding why she returned.

Ryan Edwards: STILL Cheating on Mackenzie Standifer With Shelby Woods?!

It's been a little over a year since Ryan Edwards married Mackenzie Standifer, and we probably don't need to tell you that he hasn't been the greatest husband in the world during that time.

Ryan has been arrested; he's had restraining orders issued against him; he's fallen off the wagon; he's been verbally abusive to his pregnant wife.

And of course, Ryan has been caught cheating on Mackenzie multiple times.

Edwards has a lengthy history of infidelity, but even the professional baby daddy's most ardent critics thought he'd stop screwing around after Mackenzie stuck by his side during the year from hell.

Sadly, it seems we all overestimated Ryan …

1. Shelby and Ryan

Shelby woods and ryan edwards
Shelby Woods briefly dated Ryan in between his relationships with Maci Bookout and Mackenzie Standifer. Now, it looks as though Edwards never quite got over his former flame.

2. Not to Be Trusted

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
Ryan married Mackenzie just over a year ago. But in that short time, he’s been accused of infidelity on numerous occasions.

3. Tinder Trouble

First, Ryan was caught communicating with other women on Tinder, using an account that falsely stated his age as 25. (He’s actually 30.)

4. Let ‘Em Know

Shortly thereafter, Shelby took to Twitter to let the world know that Ryan was still hitting her up on a regular basis.

5. Hey, Sis

“Sometimes I just wanna be like, ‘Hey sis, your husband is still hitting me up,'” she tweeted on April 15. “Buuuuut then I remember how delusional you are so I don’t waste my time.”

6. Not One For Taking Hints

Sadly, it seems Ryan didn’t get the message that Shelby isn’t interested.

Mackenzie Standifer Debuts Baby Bump … But Is She Still With Ryan Edwards?!

It’s been two months since news of Ryan Edward’s arrest brought the Teen Mom OG star’s whole world crashing down.

Just one day after news that Ryan had been picked up for a probation violation came reports that he had once again been caught cheating on Mackenzie Standifer, his wife of one year, who is currently pregnant with his girlfriend.

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Edwards’ ex, Maci Bookout, had filed for a restraining order after being threatened by Ryan.

Needless to say, all of this hasn’t made for a terribly tranquil pregnancy for poor Mackenzie.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that Ryan’s beleaguered wife has decided to take a hiatus from social media.

But Mack didn’t just delete her account, like most social media stars who have had enough.

No, she wisely realized that an Instagram page with a six-figure following is valuable virtual real estate.

So she gifted the page to her friend, photographer Christian C. George.

And as a reward for not unfollowing him as soon as Mackenzie jumped ship, George offers up the occasional gem, such as the photo above.

That’s the first pic of Mackenzie’s baby bump, posted by George this afternoon.

“When Mack told me about how much her quality of life improved since letting go of social media a couple of months back I didn’t totally understand,” he captioned the pic.

“I see social media as a marketing tool and an additional stream of revenue for influencers. However, what price was she paying? Since I took over Mackenzie’s account- I expected people to unfollow (because after all they didn’t follow me- they followed her).”

George went on to say that he’s learned some lessons from walking a mile in Mackenzie’s shoes:

“What I didn’t expect was the trail of bullying to continue,” he wrote. “These are examples of the messages I’ve received:

“‘You’re f—ng ugly just like Mackenzie, your pictures suck and so do you, you’re trash, why did your ugly face show up on my timeline today.’

“It’s unfortunate that these types of cyber attacks actually exist. I’m choosing to find peace with Jesus, and thanking Him for His Amazing grace and truth!”

Then Christian encouraged you to “learn more about” him, but let’s be honest, that’s not what you came here for.

Anyway, it’s nice to see that Mackenzie is doing well (no word yet on whether she’s still with Ryan), and it’s kind of cool that she discovered such an innovative way to put her old IG account to good use.

Very savvy. Maybe she is the right person to replace Farrah Abraham, after all!

Watch Teen Mom OG online to relive the wildly bumpy road that brought Mackenzie to where she is today.
