Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer: Still Together! Still Ridiculous!

Things have been pretty rocky lately for Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer.

Rockier than they were when they got married while he was high on heroin, even.

Yep, for the past month or so, Ryan’s life has been falling apart in a pretty major way — again, even worse than it already was.

In March, he got arrested for violating his probation, because it turns out that he’d been arrested last year for simple possession of heroin.

We’re still not clear on exactly how he violated the probation — Mackenzie has said that the whole thing was a misunderstanding and that he wasn’t technically arrested at all, and other sources have claimed he either failed or missed a drug test.

What we do know is that he was arrested at his home, he got a brand new mug shot, and that may not have even been the worst thing that happened to him that week.

The same day we found out about the arrest, a woman came forward to claim that she’d been talking to Ryan on Tinder.

It was confirmed that the phone number the woman had belonged to Ryan, so that means he’s been cheating or trying to cheat on his pregnant wife.

Because, oh yeah, it just so happened that Mackenzie’s pregnancy was revealed on Teen Mom OG exactly when all this other nonsense was happening.

One more thing — during this super eventful time, Maci Bookout also started the process of obtaining orders of protection against him for herself and her children.

She did this because she said he’d been harassing her and threatening to kidnap their son. Her husband filed an order of his own because Ryan had actually threatened to murder him.

Shortly after all of this, Mackenzie left their Chattanooga home for New York.

We don’t know why or for how long, but it didn’t look like a great sign.

Last we heard, the couple was on the brink of divorce because “neither one of them can stand each other,” and that when it comes to their relationship, “things are way worse than they seem.”

But as one source explained it. “she just sticks around for the paycheck,” so maybe as long as Ryan has a job on Teen Mom he’ll have a wife.

With this latest development, it’s looking like that last thing may be the case.

Earlier this week, a car dealership in Chattanooga shared a photo of Ryan and Mackenzie in front of a new truck they’d purchased — a custom Ford F-150.

They thanked the Edwards family for their purchase and told them to “please let us know if you need anything at all in the future!!”

This is interesting for a number of reasons.

One, it means that they’re definitely together right now.

Two, this is the first new photo of Mackenzie since we learned she was pregnant. She’s wearing a very loose shirt so we can’t see any baby bump, and she may not even have much of one yet, but still, it’s worth mentioning.

Three, Ryan and his wife are about to have a baby and this is the vehicle they decide to purchase? Seriously?

Four, isn’t it so great that this guy who’s been known to drive while on heroin purchased this huge truck? Seems like a great idea for everyone.

Stay safe, Ryan and Mackenzie! And also everyone who may be driving in or around southeast Tennessee!


Lamar Odom to Khloe Kardashian: Let’s Get Back Together!

Prior to hooking up with Khloe Kardashian and then cheating on Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson was known for being one of the NBA’s best rebounders.

Which is ironic.

Because a new report states plainly that Khloe’s ex-husband would love to be Kardashian’s romantic rebound.

Indeed, Lamar Odom reads the same websites as you do and is well aware of what’s going on.

Of what has apparently been going on for months.

On Wednesday, the Internet nearly exploded over various reports that Thompson has stepped out on his pregnant girlfriend on at least two occasions:

1. There’s surveillance footage of him kissing one woman and being groped by another in Washington D.C. last October.

2. There’s also surveillance footage of him entering a New York City hotel with a woman (allegedly named Lani Brown) who he had been making out with earlier in the night.

The latter incident took place just two weeks ago.

With Khloe actually living in Tristan’s Cleveland home and awaiting the birth of their first child, Us Weekly alleges that Odom has a message for her:


“Lamar would absolutely get back together with Khloe, and realizes he wasn’t the best person he could be while they were together,” this tabloid insider says.

Odom, who also played professional basketball for a living, has admitted himself to cheating on Khloe during their marriage.

He has also admitted to battling a substance abuse problem throughout their romance, one that nearly took his life a couple years ago after he overdosed at a brothel in Las Vegas.

Khloe remained by her former husband’s side while he recovered from this experience, and the two have always been very public about their love for each other.

“Lamar feels terrible for Khloe. He wasn’t sure if he should reach out and see how she’s doing. He feels for her,” People Magazine also says of Odom.

So… is there a chance the ex-spouses could actually reconcile?

Sure. There’s always a chance.

But Khloe is due to welcome a daughter any day now.

The daughter belongs to Thompson, of course, making everything rather complicated.

Thankfully, Odom is reportedly woke enough to realize that asking to reunite with a woman about to give birth to another man’s child is a little… weird.

“It’s incredibly upsetting for Lamar, and he wants to call her but doesn’t have a phone number for Khloe,” the Us Weekly source alleges, adding:

“He could call Kris, but doesn’t want to intrude because she is about to give birth.”

Good non-call there, Lamar.

You’ve gotta give Khloe some time here.

Like, months and months of time, if not years and years of time.

Her heart is broken over Thompson’s actions and her vagina will soon be in a lot of pain due to the whole birthing process.

We somehow doubt she’ll be anxious to jump back into bed with anyone any time soon.

Kardashian and Odom got married on September 27, 2009, just one month to the day after they met (and nine days after getting engaged).

However, the marriage fell apart after the former Los Angeles Lakers player’s cheating scandal and drug relapse, which led Kardashian to file for divorce in 2013.

“Love is blind … Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I’m this princess. I never speculated cheating,” Khloe told Howard Stern in 2016 of Odom’s infidelity.

She added at the time:

“It is humiliating on any level, but I found out he was cheating on me the majority of our marriage, I just didn’t know.”

Seriously, poor Khloe Kardashian, right?

Let’s hope she dumps Tristan the zero and eventually finds her way to a hero, someone who will treat her the way she deserves to be treated – and/or at the very least, does not have sex with any other woman.

Is that asking too much, fellas?

Just keep it in your pants.


The Bachelor & Bachelorette Couples: Who’s Still Together?

The Bachelor's 2018 season came to a close with Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Becca Kufrin engaged and totally, utterly, blissfully in love.

Or something. According to The Bachelor spoilers, that relationship would end and he would spurn Becca for runner-up Lauren Burnham.

This turned out to be correct.

Arie and Becca lasted a matter of weeks, and his breakup with her was filmed for the world to see. Raw. Unedited. Uncut.

Didn't see that twist coming, though Arie's reputation preceded him, and we can't say this bodes well for Lauren B. either.

Will they be a new golden couple for the show, a la Trista and Ryan, Ashley and J.P., Jason and Molly and Desiree and Chris?

Or another Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi? Or … Arie and Becca?

Sorry, too soon.

The point is, we can't help but wonder as we ponder the future: Who is still living happily ever after at this point? Who is not?

You don't need The Bachelor or The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that the "made it" list is a lot shorter than the other.

Take a look at notable duos from The Bachelor and Bachelorette and see whether they're still together since the show:

1. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham

Yes, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are still together. Right now. For the moment. As of this report. It’s only been a few weeks since they’ve gone public, however, and needless to say, the consensus is that Becca Kufrin dodged a bullet and that Lauren might have her heart broken next. We’re not rooting for that sad outcome, but just saying … it’s Arie.

2. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo

Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are a match made in heaven … or are they? Bachelor Nation seemed to prefer runner-up Peter Kraus, but Rachel went with the smooth (too smooth for some fans’ liking) doctor from Miami at the last minute. If Bryan didn’t watch the finale, which centered primarily on Peter waffling over his willingness to propose and Rachel being hung up on him? Then they might be alright.

3. Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi

Look … we wished Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi all the best. That was just the least inspiring public debut from a Bachelor couple since Juan Pablo and Nikki, and it never got much better before they eventually broke up. Come on, people. We were talking about Nick Viall, who was clearly bitten hard by the fame bug, and fell for a girl who didn’t want to be in the “business” or leave Canada, where he had no interest in moving. Just saying. The odds made them a definite underdog from the start, and their five-month relationship proved skeptics correct.

4. JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are an interesting case, both seemingly over the moon in love and behind the proverbial eight ball since day one. They certainly seem to have weathered whatever storms have been in their path thus far, but it’s still in the “honeymoon” phase, and we can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to Aaron’s little brother than we know – or that JoJo does at this point. Chances they’ll make it to the altar? 50-50.

5. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell

It was a good year, closer to a year and a half actually, which is a long time for any relationship, and Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell recently called out what they deemed as “fake news” that said they had broken up … but they canceled their wedding and just admitted that they broke up. #realnews

6. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have looked the part of the happy couple ever since they got engaged in August 2015. But will their engagement actually last and stand the test of time? The show’s track record suggests otherwise … but here we are a year and a half later, so the joke’s on us?
