In recent weeks, Ryan Edwards might be the worst dad in the Teen Mom franchise.
But now, Mackenzie Standifer is telling the world that he's a better father than he appears.
During an Instagram Q&A session earlier this week, Mackenzie defended Ryan's parenting and attacked Maci Bookout's approach to raising her son.
Topics of conversation included Maci pressuring her son to lose weight for wrestling, as well as Bookout's newly-expired restraining order against Edwards.
Mackenzie usually doesn't hold back in interviews, but this time, she really let Maci have it with both barrels.
And the result may be an ugly feud between Ryan's ex and his current wife.
Take a look:
1. Mack Defends Her Man
Mackenzie Standifer is sick of all the criticism that Teen Mom OG fans direct at her husband — and now, she’s speaking out in Ryan Edwards’ defense.
2. Mack Stands Up
In a new interview with Katie Joy of the Without a Crystal Ball vlog, Mack addresses a wide array of topics, including Maci’s parenting techniques and the recent controversy surrounding Edwards’ alleged drug use.
3. Perfect Timing
The interview took place in the aftermath of a Teen Mom OG scene that sparked an intense debate among fans.
4. Dueling Parents
On Tuesday’s episode, Maci encouraged her son to lose weight so that he could wrestle in a less-competitive weight class. Ryan took issue with this practice.
5. Throwing Shade
Asked what made her the “most upset” about the episode, Mackenzie replied, “I just never want any of our kids to ever feel like they need to go to those lengths to be successful.”
6. Shots Fired
If you think it sounds like Mackenzie is throwing some shade at Maci’s parenting, you’re absolutely right. And that comment was just the tip of the iceberg.
