Maci Bookout & Mackenzie Standifer: Teaming Up to Deal With Ryan Edwards?!

Last month, former Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards was arrested on charges theft and heroin possession.

The good news is, the theft charge has since been dropped.

The bad news is … well, it’s plentiful:

The possession charge isn’t going anywhere, and since Ryan was on probation at the time of his arrest, he’ll remain behind bars at least until his court date on April 15.

Fortunately, Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is not without a support system on the outside.

And these days, she’s receiving help from some very unexpected sources.

Take a look:

Ryan’s absence has been hardest on his two sons — 9-year-old Bentley, from his relationship with Maci, and Jagger, who was welcomed by Mackenzie while Ryan was in rehab last year.

4. Enough Pain to Go Around

That’s not to say of course, that his addiction and legal entanglements haven’t been difficult on Maci and Mackenzie, as well.

5. A Hard Road to Travel

Obviously, Maci moved on from Ryan quite some time ago, but watching her eldest child cope with the pain of having an imprisoned heroin addict for a father cannot be easy.

So… will THIS be the final straw?

That’s what many Teen Mom fans are wondering about Ryan Edwards got arrested for the umpteenth time last week, taken into custody after he bailed on paying a bar tab.

With an outstanding warrant also floating around, police took Edwards into custody on charges of both theft AND drug possession, adding to a permanent legal record that is chock full of mug shots and court hearings.

What will happen next to the former MTV personality?

We can’t say, from a legal point of view.

From a personal one, however? Scroll down to get an idea of what wife Mackenzie is thinking at the moment…

Ryan Edwards: Leaving Mackenzie Standifer for Tinder Hookup?!

So, yeah. Ryan Edwards …

It’s just not going great.

If you stop and think about it, the troubled, turbulent Teen Mom OG star had just gotten a chance to turn his life around entirely:

He’s fresh out of rehab with a new baby son Jagger and a wife, Mackenzie Standifer, who for some strange reason still loves him.

But the guy just can’t seem to get it together. No sooner did Maci Bookout’s ex get out of rehab then he got on … Tinder.

Oh yes. And now it looks like he’s ruining everything. Wait until you read the details of his online hookup, and its aftermath.

1. A Genuine Disaster

Yeah, so Ryan here doesn’t seem to be doing too hot.

2. It’s Just Sad

It’s a shame, because he just spent 90 days in rehab and returned home to a loving wife and their brand new baby boy, but he’s already screwing up again.

3. The Bright Side

Ryan edwards with fans
If there’s one good thing about him these days, it’s that there’s a chance he’s sober — according to people who have seen him in the past few weeks, he looks happier and healthier than ever.

4. Awwww

And in the Christmas photo Mackenzie shared, he does look good.

5. Unfortunately …

But Ryan just can’t give up being creepy on Tinder.

6. Sounds Fair

Ryan Edwards to Tinder Match: You Wanna Do Some Coke?

Sigh. Well, folks, the “maybe Ryan Edwards isn’t such a terrible guy, after all” narrative was fun while it lasted.

As you probably know, Ryan got out of rehab last month after completing a 90-day course of treatment.

Those closest to the troubled Teen Mom OG star claimed he’d changed his ways, but it looks as though he’s already fallen back into his old habits.

Earlier this week, we learned that Ryan is once again using Tinder to try and cheat on Mackenzie Standifer.

And according to new screenshots obtained by Radar Online, he’s off the wagon and looking to get high with some of his hookup partners.

Here’s what we know about this sad situation so far:


1. A Familiar Pattern

This isn’t the first time that Ryan checked into rehab, emerged triumphant, and immediately went back to his old ways.

2. Ryan’s Hope

Ryan edwards and family
Family and friends had hoped this time would be different. It was the longest Edwards had ever remained in treatment, and his wife recently gave birth to a baby boy.

3. Squandered Potential

They hoped sobriety would make Ryan a better husband and father and keep him out of trouble with the law.

4. No Magic Bullet

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer
Sadly, rehab doesn’t always result in sobriety, and sobriety doesn’t always make former addicts more trustworthy or responsible.

5. A Troubled Man

Ryan edwards on teen mom reunion
Obviously, Ryan’s heroin addiction and the legal problems that resulted from it are the biggest obstacles in his life — but he has a lot of other demons to conquer, as well.

6. Lyin’ Ryan

Though they’ve been married less than two years, Ryan has been caught cheating on Mackenzie on numerous occasions.

Ryan Edwards & Mackenzie Standifer Share First Photo of Baby Jagger Amid Rumors of Marital Strife

The road to sobriety isn’t easy for any addict, but many Teen Mom OG fans predicted it would be especially difficult for Ryan Edwards.

Ryan completed rehab last month, and he immediately returned to a life of tremendous responsibilities and obligations.

His wife, Mackenzie Standifer, gave birth to son Jagger while Ryan was in treatment, which means Edwards came home to a new son, a notoriously troubled marriage, and the eyes of millions of Teen Mom fans watching his every move.

It’s a great deal of pressure, and sadly, it seems the couple is already showing signs of strain.

But they’re still doing their best to maintain a pleasant facade on social media.

Take a look:

1. The “Happy” Family

Ryan edwards and family
Here it is — the first official photo of Ryan and Mackenzie’s new baby boy, Jagger!

2. Getting Creative

Mackenzie posted pics of Jagger while Ryan was in rehab, but she always obscured his face.

3. Reunited

Now that the whole family is back together, however, it seems Mackenzie has finally decided to share Jagger’s smile with the world.

4. Ups and Downs

Teen Mom: The Most Insane Feuds, Revisited!

From on-camera brawls to social media feuds and legal threats, the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 sure know how to go hard.

Engagements. Breakups. Marriages. Babies. 

Moments that made you cringe because they were so painful, or smile ear-to-ear. Scenes that were fights, or made you fight back tears.

The franchise really does have it all, and as such, it’s become one of the most entertaining in the history of the reality TV genre.

Below, we look back at some of the MTV gang’s most explosive feuds, and however you might rank them, this much is undeniable:

There were no shortage of them.

NOTE: We’ve saved the best for last, so we advise you to take a deep breath, sit back, grab a hat and hold the f–k onto it …

33. Briana DeJesus vs. Leah Messer (and Others)

Briana dejesus vs leah messer and others
When Briana DeJesus joined the Teen Mom 2 cast in 2017, she was not welcomed with open arms. In fact, she quickly became persona non grata at her first get-together with the cast – with one exception. Jenelle Evans, Briana said, “is the only one who was acting like her s–t ain’t stink. Plus she was the only one who wasn’t acting fake and choosing sides.â€� Leah Messer’s response was to “pay no attention to those who try to bring you down … they’re just envious of where you are and how well you’re doing.â€� As we’ll get to in a bit, relations haven’t exactly gotten more amicable in the months since.

32. Maci Bookout vs. Taylor McKinney

Maci bookout taylor mckinney selfie
Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney’s relationship has produced three kids, and they seem very happily married … most of the time. Like, 85 percent of the time. Bookout alarmed fans with this confession earlier in the year that revealed some trouble in paradise: “Eighty-five percent of the time we’re good to go … Fifteen percent is hell. All of our stress and emotions, we take out on each other. When the cameras leave, we’ll drink and freak out. It’s always literally the smallest things. It’s such small stuff but it blows up. It’s not going to go away.â€� Yikes … but at least they are self-aware and working on things?

31. Matt Baier vs. Amber Portwood … The Eruption

Matt vs amber
Things neared a boiling point between Amber Portwood and Matt Baier after he vowed that would never marry her … because she wouldn’t marry him on the spot in Las Vegas, obviously. “I will not marry her,â€� he said. “I will not marry her now, ever! I’m not gonna let her [brother] dictate my life. That f—king f—got. She wants to marry her brother. That’s who she wants to marry. F—k her. She just humiliated me on TV. I’m done!â€� Matt, who was livid at Amber’s reasoning for not eloping in Vegas – her brother Shawn not being present – went on to tell a producer, “I don’t care who you have to give oral pleasure to, keep the Amber and Matt wedding thing off [the air]. She just embarrassed me in front of 12 million people.â€� We’re pretty sure you did that to yourself, Matt …

30. Jeremy Calvert vs. Brooke Wehr

Brooke Wehr was never a Teen Mom 2 cast member, but due to her mercurial relationship with Jeremy Calvert, her impact was felt just the same. Earlier this year, the couple’s engagement ended after Brooke accused Jeremy of cheating on her with multiple women, one being a Teen Mom 2 producer, another being her best friend, and a third possibly being his ex-wife Leah Messer. Oh yes. Brooke even shared a screen shot of a text message conversation between Jeremy and the best friend as proof, while Calvert responded in a drunken stupor that yes, maybe he did sleep with Brooke’s best friend, but … only because Wehr slept with some other guy first. Or, as he put it, Brooke was “f-cking his brains out, every day,” and he was single, so “my dick was happy to do whatever the f-ck it wanted to do, and it did.” Shocking that these two didn’t work out … but neither party was completely off base with their allegations. Just saying. Jeremy and Leah did hook up.

29. Jenelle Evans vs. David Eason

Jenelle evans david eason fight on teen mom 2
From the get-go, it’s been Jenelle Evans and husband David Eason against the world, but at times, they’ve been at each other’s throats as well. Arguments between the two were commonplace throughout recent seasons of Teen Mom 2, and one particularly heated argument resulted in them calling off their wedding … the night before the wedding. (They ultimately got married as planned.) Bad tempers are one thing, but the most troubling aspect is that David has been accused of mistreating/abusing Jenelle’s son Kaiser because he reminds him of Kaiser’s dad, Nathan Griffith. He also doesn’t get along with her mom, at all, further driving a wedge between the Evans women.

28. Jenelle Evans vs. David Eason, Part Two

Jenelle evans 911 call
Things got much, much worse in October of 2018 when Jenelle called 911, and through hysterical sobs, she told the operator that David had physically assaulted her, and that he’d knocked her to the ground so hard she thought she heard her collarbone snap. But once the call was released, she was quick to tell everyone that her marriage is actually amazing and he definitely never hurt her.

Mackenzie Standifer to MTV: Stay Away From My Baby!

Mackenzie Standifer may be relatively new to the world of Teen Mom OG, but she’s already biting the hand that feeds her like a seasoned pro.

Standifer took to Instagram to gripe about the show’s producers this week, and the response from fans has been — mixed.

After all, this is the show that fired Mackenzie and Ryan at their lowest point.

Ryan Edwards: Out of Rehab and Loving Life! (According to Mackenzie Standifer)

It’s been about a week since Ryan Edwards got out of rehab, and the former Teen Mom OG star has been keeping a low profile during that time.

That’s a very good thing, as the last time he checked out of a treatment facility, Edwards immediately started bashing Maci Bookout on Instagram.

This time around, he’s keeping his nose clean, focusing on his sobriety, and spending time with his newborn son.

But that doesn’t mean we’re totally in the dark about how Ryan is doing these days.

Both Maci and Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Standifer, have offered updates recently, and so far, fans like what they’re seeing.

Take a look:

1. Triumphant Ryan

We don’t want to jinx him, but it looks like Ryan may have finally turned things around.

2. Sticking It Out

Despite initial reports that he left rehab early again, Ryan reportedly lasted for the entire 90-day course of treatment.

3. Moves Like Jagger

Ryan even missed the birth of his second son, Jagger, in order to complete treatment.

4. The Return

5. Q&A

Mackenzie recently took to Instagram to answer fans’ questions about what life’s been like since welcoming Jagger into the world.

6. Point-Blank

The question that got the most attention, of course, had to do with Mackenzie’s relationship with Ryan.

Now, however, Ryan’s long-suffering wife, Mackenzie Standifer, has come forward to clear the air.
