Jen and Larry Edwards have always stood as pillars of support to Teen Mom OG star, Maci Bookout McKinney — but according to a released preview clip, the family love is collapsing between the parents of Ryan Edwards, and the mother of their grandson.
Fans will see Ryan, and fiancee, Mackenzie Standifer, discuss the development with Jen and Larry, after a filmed lunch revealed Maci shading Bentley’s grandparents. Maci implied that the couple thwarts Ryan’s ability to parent, and claimed that Bentley, 8, routinely cries in protest when anticipating grandparent visits. Maci also revealed that Jen does not allow Bentley his own bed, instead insisting on sleeping with the child.
“They’re the most wonderful people on the planet, but as selfless as they are, when it comes to Bentley, they are selfish,” Maci remarked, as MTV cameras roll.
Mackenzie blabbed Maci’s cutting jabs — the duo was being filmed, after all — and her future in-laws lashed back. In a follow-up scene, Jen labels Maci’s claim “bullcrap,” and Larry fumes, sounding off about Maci’s comments.
“This is coming out of nowhere…left field, and it’s just bullcrap,” Jen says.
“Bentley has always been our number one best interest, period,” Larry adds. “It’s crawling up the back of my neck right now.”
Viewers have watched Jen care for not only Bentley, but also for the daughter whom Maci shares with now husband, Taylor McKinney. Maci finally has a ring on her finger — are Jen and Larry’s helping hands no longer needed — or wanted?
Watch Teen Mom OG and make the call — Monday night, at 9:00 p.m. ET, on MTV.
