Ryan Edwards And His Family Fired From ‘Teen Mom OG’ After Fight With Maci
One of the more compelling storylines from this most recent season of ‘Teen Mom OG‘ has been the ongoing battle between Maci Bookout and her ex-boyfriend/baby daddy, Ryan Edwards.
If you’re a fan of the show, you already know the story. They had a baby together when they were teens, struggled to parent together, broke up, and now they’re basically enemies. Ryan has struggled with a drug addiction, and while he has supposedly gotten help, he’s been looking real rough this current season.
So the kid they had together, Bentley, is now 12-years-old, and he’s old enough to see how crappy his father is. He expressed interest in going to therapy with Ryan, but so far, Ryan hasn’t seemed all that motivated to go.
Because of this broken relationship with his father, Bentley hasn’t wanted to visit him as much, which has led to Ryan and his family believing Maci is keeping Bentley from them.
Ryan’s father, Larry Edwards, recently talked to a gossip blog claiming Maci was keeping Bentley from them, which was a lie. Maci and her husband, Taylor McKinney, were rightly pissed about this during a recent episode of the show.
And it looks like the tension overflowed at the reunion (which was taped a couple weeks ago). They showed a teaser from the reunion, and it looks like Larry and Taylor were about to throw hands.
All this fighting has led to the firing of Ryan, his wife Mackenzie, and his parents Larry and Jen. Larry told The Sun, “We, the family have been let go from the show by the network. It’s unbelievable.”
And Mackenzie talked about the firing on some YouTube channel called Without A Crystal Ball:
Jen and Larry got fired. We got fired. They said that when [Maci Bookout] didn’t fulfill her obligations or like basically didn’t have enough content, that they call us back. Ryan was just like, ‘Don’t. We’re gonna move on. We’re gonna live our lives. We’re gonna do our jobs and, you know, have a normal life. Like don’t waste your time or your breath coming back.’
The thing about that “jobs” comment is that as far as we know, Ryan’s only job is yawning excessively on the couch. Without that Teen Mom OG paycheck, how is he going to afford anything? I suppose maybe his dad will hook him up with a job.
But I mean, I don’t know that he’s in any position to work. This is how he looked in a recent episode…
This is how he used to look…
I’m thinking he needs rehab again. No shade. Just concern.
