On the ‘Teen Mom’ reunion, Maci admitted that she turned to Ryan for comfort after her breakup with Kyle, and Dalis is NOT happy with their flirty text exchanges. Read on to find out what happened.
When Maci Bookout told Dr. Drew Pinksy during the finale reunion special of Teen Mom that not only were she and Kyle King broken up, but that her ex Ryan Edwards helped her get through it, the audience was stunned — and Ryan’s girlfriend Dalis Connell was fuming.
“Ryan has been very supportive of me and my decisions that I’ve made since (the break-up with Kyle) happened,” Maci told Dr. Drew.
When he asked her how she felt about Ryan’s girlfriend Dalis, the 21-year-old hinted that there is still some resentment between the two.
“I think she’s very responsible, but what bothers me is I think that she thinks of Ryan’s ex-girlfriend rather than Bentley‘s mother.”
But even Dr. Drew said he noticed Ryan being nicer to Maci lately, and when Bentley’s dad joined his ex on the couch, he admitted why.
“She had a few other things going on, she called me and told me her grandfather died and I needed to watch Bentley,” he said. Maci’s breakup with Kyle came the same week as the unfortunate news of her grandfather, but Ryan stepped up to lend a helping hand!
Dalis and Maci go head-to-head
Tension grew to a boiling point when Dalis came out to join them on stage, and she accused Maci of flirting with Ryan and trying to turn him against her.
“You, you said, ‘you’d have a better time with me,’” Dalis said, and Maci fired back, “I really don’t think you want to go there, because then I’m going to bring something (up) that you really don’t want to hear.”
Although Ryan played dumb to the whole ordeal, Maci dropped a bombshell — it was Ryan who initiated the flirtatious conversation during their vacation.
“I was at dinner with my girlfriends, Ryan called me, said him and Dalis were fighting, and that he wanted to come to my room, and hang out with us and go out with us,” Maci said. She then said Ryan denied the whole conversation, and only told Dalis that Maci had been texting him the whole time.
Ryan’s new girlfriend was not pleased, and accused Maci of still “trying to get with Ryan, texting Ryan.” She added, “I’ve seen the text messages.”
It was very clear throughout this final season that Maci still had some jealousy toward Dalis — remember when she said she “didn’t have a chance” during their beach vacation? — and it seems the resentment hasn’t completely gone away.
Maci and Kyle are back together, and Ryan and Dalis are still going strong, but as co-parents to one toddler caught in the middle, it looks like the arguments are far from over.
