Teen mom Maci Bookout breaks down in angry tears over her “hostility” towards troubled ex Ryan Edwards in new video
TEEN mom Maci Bookout broke down in tears in new video over her ex Ryan Edwards’ behavior.
The reality star opened up about her feelings towards her baby daddy in the latest episode of Teen Mom: Family Reunion.
On Tuesday night’s episode, following the exit of Briana DeJesus and Ashley Jones, the remaining ladies gathered for a group exercise with life coach Cheyenne “Coach B” Bryant.
The girls were commissioned to write their traumas on a hatchet to bury it in the dirt – a symbolic way to free them from their pain.
The activity quickly became emotional for Maci, 31, as she cried over her teenage son Bentley’s strained relationship with his father.
“I want to let go of the anger I have towards Ryan, but I don’t feel like I’m angry at myself. I feel like I’m angry at Bentley so I’m not sure I can bury that. ‘ she admitted.
The young mum then mentioned the 14-year-old’s reluctance to work to reconnect with his father and said he was considering giving up.
“There were times when he wanted to throw in the towel to Ryan,” Maci confessed of her son.
Then played a throwback scene from Teen Mom OG in which Bentley refused to go to his half-brother Jagger’s birthday party after finding out the place was at Ryan and his wife Mackenzie’s.
Maci’s admission prompted Coach B to ask if she feels guilty about the father-son couple not having a relationship.

“I feel like it just hurts everyone because of my choices in relationships. Everyone who loves me hurts because of it,” she said, wiping away tears.
Coach B then asked the mother of three to write on her hatchet what she wanted to bury.
Maci revealed her words were: “unrealistic expectations” and “hostility toward Ryan,” before adding “self-blame” with Coach B’s encouragement.
Young and pregnant star Kiaya Elliott praised her castmate in a confessional for taking the steps to “move on”.
“Good for Maci, because it was a rollercoaster ride for her. She has a teenager now so it’s just time to move on,” the 21-year-old commented.
Maci then ended the drill by placing her hatchet in the empty hole in the ground while her co-stars clapped from the sidelines.
Teen Mom fans have watched Ryan’s complicated relationship over the years, and the teen admitted to Dr. Drew even admitted during the reunion special that the pair didn’t speak to each other.
Another troubled relationship for Ryan appears to be with his wife Mackenzie, as the 35-year-old lashed out at her in a surprise social media rant over the weekend.
On Sunday, the former MTV star returned to Instagram for the first time since 2018 to accuse Mackenzie, 26, of cheating on him in a heated outburst as he also threatened to divorce her.
Ryan exclusively told The US Sun that the two have resolved their issues and he has no plans to end the marriage.
He told The US Sun: “I was wrong. She’s not that kind of person.
“For a relationship, it’s a work in progress.”
In the early hours on Sunday, Ryan posted a now-deleted photo of a couple kissing with a caption that read, “I trusted you but now your words mean nothing to me because your actions spoke the truth.”
He captioned his post: “Your regrets are coming… the good god showed me what i need but not what i wanted.”
Additionally, Ryan took to Mackenzie’s Instagram to scathingly comment on her latest post about the two together.
He wrote: “Take your wife down I’m not proud to be married to someone who stays in bars and goes home with other guys…
“Tomorrow can’t be here soon enough!”
Ryan continued, “Don’t you know what happens when you lie with dogs? Wait, look who I’m talking to. And then I blame my addiction—yes, divorce is the right thing to do.”
STARTED BY MTV
Ryan has been in rehab and jail for the last several years as he has been open about his heroin addiction.
As of 2021, he has claimed to The US Sun that he is sober.
Ryan, Mackenzie and his parents Jen and Larry were fired from Teen Mom OG in 2021.
The Edwards family was fired from the series after an argument between Ryan’s father, Larry, and Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, during the reunion special, which saw the two men compete and almost get into a physical fight.
Ryan blamed his ex-Maci for the firing, saying it was “retaliation” for spitting on the air.
Ryan also revealed an argument he got into with MTV producers just before he was kicked out of the hit series for refusing to lower the American flag at his home in Tennessee during filming.
