To say Ryan Edwards dislikes his ex, Maci Bookout, would be an understatement. He made his feelings for her very clear during the Feb. 23 episode of ‘Teen Mom OG’.
Ryan Edwards still seems to believe that Maci Bookout is the source of all of his problems. He made that very clear during the Feb. 23 episode of Teen Mom OG, when he blamed her for their son, Bentley, wanting to back out of going to a party at his house.
After Ryan learned that Bentley didn’t want to attend his brother Jagger‘s birthday party if it was going to be held at Ryan’s house, Ryan told his wife, Mackenzie, “I know [my mom] wants to see Bentley, but there comes a point in time where you can only take so much of Maci’s bulls***.”
Mackenzie said she was “over it” and felt that the whole situation was unfair for Ryan’s other children. “I’m responsible for these kids emotions and their feelings and they don’t deserve that,” she said. “It’s one thing to be a petty bitch, thats fine, but when you start including my kids, that’s just not okay with me.”
Ryan then called his ex a “spiteful, evil bitch … that’s exactly what she is.”
"I haven't seen him in forever, and then that'd just be a big jump from just like, not seeing him." 💔 When there's a change in plans, Bentley has a change of heart when it comes to seeing his dad on tonight's #TeenMomOG. pic.twitter.com/jdvTGvgXM1

While Maci’s been allowing Bentley to make all of his own decisions pertaining to visits with his dad amid Ryan’s struggle with addiction, Ryan consistently blames Maci for the choices that their son makes. But he refuses to acknowledge his own behavior. Just like this week, Bentley said Ryan was acting odd at the birthday party, so maybe Bentley’s decision to distance himself from his dad was a wise choice.
After returning home to Maci and stepdad Taylor McKinney, Bentley told them that Ryan showed up to the party 30 minutes late and by himself. Bentley also said that Ryan ran off to a bedroom for an extended period of time after Jagger opened his gifts. “There was like no interaction, me and daddy, we didn’t really talk much,” Bentley explained.
Maci and Taylor weren’t happy with what they had heard, but they praised Bentley for understanding that the party was about his brother, and not him. They then commended him for being a good big brother.
Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell suspected she was pregnant this week. And because this episode was filmed a few months back, we don’t suspect this is the pregnancy she just announced in real-time, earlier this week. Especially because — even though she was feeling symptoms of being pregnant — she took a bunch of pregnancy tests and most of them turned up negative. Catelynn felt a few appeared to have a positive result, but Tyler just thought she was seeing what she wanted to see. And a few days later, Catelynn had her period. We also could soon learn that this was the miscarriage that Catelynn revealed just a few months ago.
