It was revealed last night in Teem Mom OG’s Season 7 premiere that Ryan Edwards, father of Maci Bookout’s son Bentley was spending upwards of $10,000 a week on drugs before he went to rehab earlier this year.
This information came out during a conversation between Mackenzie Standifer, Ryan’s wife of several months and Kiki, an MTV producer. Mackenzie actually traveled to Dallas, TX in this first episode to visit Edwards in his rehab clinic. Mackenzie told Kiki that Ryan “was using three times a day! Ten thousand dollars a week”! Even Kiki admitted that it was a “sh*t ton of money”.
In addition to this discovery, Mackenzie also told Kiki about a one-on-one therapy session that she and Ryan attended in the clinic. The therapist asked Mackenzie who she thought Ryan’s triggers were. Mackenzie said, ” and I said one name and boy was he…”
One guess whose name it was. Yep, that’s right. Maci.
Mackenzie went on to tell Kiki that she understood where Ryan’s frustration comes from regarding his troubled relationship with Maci. Referencing Maci’s communication issues with Ryan, Mackenzie says “Oh I have no communication with Ryan. Yes you do, and I watch you sit there and ignore his texts. Ryan is not a bad guy, and my blood boils because she literally does this for her own self whatever and it really is just pissing me off”.
Maci also claimed at one point during the premiere that she had not heard from either Ryan or Mackenzie regarding his status in rehab and his path to recovery.
Let’s hope these three can figure this all out soon for the sake of Bentley!
