Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Baltierra gathered in Puerto Rico on Monday’s episode, a rare Teen Mom OG escape from the everyday.
Maci Bookout used the opportunity to confirm info about her ex — rumors more blistering than the sunburns that colored the cast red.
Maci finally addressed the whispers of drug use swirling around the father of her son, Ryan Edwards. Ryan’s filmed behavior has raised suspicions for months, and viewers have pointed to alleged drug use as being part of Ryan’s picture.
Maci revealed that she had received upsetting information about Ryan during last week’s episode — and has confirmed that drugs have her worried sick about Bentley’s dad.
Amber Portwood first pointed her finger at Ryan’s alleged problem, opening up the dialogue.
“I watch it. I see it. I know it. Where he’s at right now when I see him, I know where he’s at,” Amber said.
“He would do it. It’s everyone else around him that’s afraid to admit it. He’s got me,” Maci responded, when asked if Ryan would consider treatment. “Everyone else around him is too afraid of what it will look like more than his health. It’s all denial. The hardest thing is to see Ryan not love himself. He’s a person who deserves to love himself.”
Ryan was skewered by fans last season, when he was captured on film bug-eyed and slurring his words. He flatly denied the drug rumors, and has since become engaged to his girlfriend, Mackenzie Standifer.
“You are so in love with the drugs that you feel that when you wake up in the morning without them you want to die,” Amber added. “He needs to find where his bottom may be.”
“I’m going to be like, you have to go to rehab,” Maci later told her husband, Taylor McKinney. “Right now it’s about saving his life. Most nights I’m crying in our bed talking to you about whether or not today is the day he’s going to die.”
Mackenzie gave one nod to the drama on Twitter, Tuesday morning.
Time to get Rhine to rehab. Are you ready to spend the rest of your life wondering if Rhine is high?
