Maci Bookout Opens Up on Ryan Edwards Arrest: I Wish He Was Still In Jail!

Maci Bookout is in a difficult spot.

Her first baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, has been arrested three times in the past 18 months and is currently facing a year in prison if convicted on the latest charges against him.

Maci currently has a restraining order against Edwards as a result of an incident in which he allegedly threatened to murder her husband.

It may sound like she can now easily wash her hands of her troubled ex — but it’s not that simple.

Bookout has made it clear that she very much wants her eldest son, Bentley, to have a relationship with his father.

Unfortunately, she wants more than anything to ensure her son’s safety.

And for the time being at least, that means keeping him away from Ryan.

Maci has mostly kept quiet about Edwards’ struggles with addiction, but she opened up this week in an interview for Kailyn Lowry’s Coffee Convos podcast.

Her comments on Ryan’s legal issues underscore Maci’s conflicting feelings toward her ex.

“I’ll be honest, I have no idea what state he’s in because he’s not allowed to be around any of us. He can’t just be in the same location as me and the family,” she told Lowry.

“So I have no idea. He’s not allowed to contact us or anything like that. But I mean, he did get arrested, I don’t know … I mean, I do know why, but I don’t want to say.”

Bookout then revealed that she actually felt better about the situation when Ryan was held in jail for a week last month.

“I feel better that he is in jail because I know he’s safe there, if that makes sense,” Maci said.

“I know he’s not driving around. He’s not doing something that could potentially hurt him or an innocent person. So it sucks, crappy situation for everyone.”

Edwards is currently out on bail and serving six months probation.

He’s due back in court on August 23 to be tried for his latest probation violation.


Farrah Abraham: I Wish I Could Change My Kid’s Face, Too Bad It’s Illegal!

Farrah Abraham isn't going to be winning any Mother of the Year awards soon.

Or ever.

Farrah's parenting was featured on TV for years on Teen Mom OG, and in all that time, we don't think we saw one good bit of parenting on her part.

But sometimes, even though she's so awful all the time, she really goes out of her way to be as terrible as humanly possible.

This is one of those times.

1. Poor Sophia

Farrah’s daughter, Sophia, is nine years old now. And since her father passed away before she was born, that means that Sophia has spent nine solid years solely in the care of Farrah and her parents. And that’s sad.

2. What a Time

Over the years, Sophia’s been through a lot. She took many tumbles as an infant, thanks to Farrah’s poor supervision, and who could forget the time that Farrah tried to wax her eyebrows when she was just three years old?

3. … What

Oh, and the time that Farrah said that she and Sophia liked to spend time apart because “She has her own life and is doing her own thing, and I’m doing mine.” Sophia was four years old then.

4. Bad Ideas

Now that Sophia is older, it seems like she only has more to lose, like her education. Yep, Farrah has pulled her out of school so she could homeschool her herself. Because that will go well.

5. Ugh

Farrah also allows Sophia to get on social media, to attend events usually reserved for adults, and to sit in on conversations that she’s really too young to hear, as evidenced on every episode of Teen Mom OG.

6. Oh Good

And because all of that isn’t bad enough, now we have to worry about Farrah involving her kid in her plastic surgery obsession.
