Many fans of Teen Mom OG watched this week’s double episode with their fingers over their eyes. During Maci Bookout’s storyline, her ex, Ryan Edwards, left rehab after a mere 21 days in treatment (which was nine days earlier than he was supposed to) with no real plan for aftercare. For someone with a $10,000 a week drug habit, that seems awfully quick.
Maci Bookout was rightfully worried about having her son, Bentley, around Ryan so soon after he checked out of rehab, but she eventually allowed Bentley to go see Ryan’s family after he requested to do so.
Although the cameras weren’t around to catch the moment, Maci told her husband that things didn’t go very well and that she only allowed Bently to see Ryan and his grandparents for a short amount of time.
This lead to an all out Maci-bashing session at casa de Edwards as they discussed how “mean” and “untrustworthy” Maci is. It seems the real issue the family has is that she brought up Ryan’s drug issue on TV without their permission. The family, as well as Ryan’s wife, claim that they weren’t clued in to the fact that he was doing $10,000 worth of pills per week, which seems a bit absurd.
As the Edwards sat around denigrating Maci’s character, Larry Edwards (clad in an all Monster Energy ensemble) stated that “something is going to come out” about his son’s ex that he wishes he could say.
Of course, fans rushed to figure out what exactly it is Larry was talking about. Some believe that fans will eventually be told that Maci has an alcohol abuse issue, which isn’t exactly news. Fans have been concerned about the fact that Maci always seems to have a beer in her hand for ages.
Others believe that Maci was still hooking up with Ryan when she got together with her current husband, Taylor McKinney. Although no signs really point to this, it could definitely be a well-kept Teen Mom secret.
Then of course, there are other off-the-wall theories such as Maci having some kind of disease or STD, but those seem a bit less likely than the more popular theories.
This begs the question, when will Larry spill the tea?
