TEEN Mom star Mackenzie Edwards follows a hashtag all about trying to make co-parenting work with a “narcissist” after her husband Ryan’s ex Maci Bookout “got them fired.”
Ryan and Maci share a 12-year-old son, Bentley, and have been feuding over parenting the tween for years.

Mackenzie, 24, and Ryan, 33, got married in 2017, making her Bentley’s step-mother and part of the family’s co-parenting struggles.
Maci has been on the outs with Ryan ever since his jail and rehab stints for heroin abuse over the years.
With all of his personal struggles, the 33-year-old has been estranged from their son Bentley’s life, as well.
Now that he’s “clean,” according to his dad Larry, Bentley has been wanting to repair his relationship with his dad and has requested the two go to therapy together.

In a preview of the reunion episode, Larry and Taylor got into a heated argument, leading Ryan’s dad to lunge at him.
Taylor tried to lunge back, but Maci grabbed his arm to hold him back, just as Larry’s wife grabbed her husband’s arm to get him to sit down, as well.
Ryan and his wife Mackenzie were also let go from the MTV series.
A source told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup: “Ryan and Mackenzie, as well as Jen and Larry, were all on a call with production on Tuesday informing them they won’t be on the show anymore going forward.

“The Edwards were informed that Maci’s reps wanted to go a different direction and showcase all of her abilities.
“Maci went to production and explained she wanted her story to cover all the parts of her life and no longer focus on Ryan and his family.”
The insider claimed returning in the future is an option, as “they were just being set aside right now.”
The source continued to claim: “Ryan and Larry told them not to waste their time coming back to film in the future if they were serious about it.”
The outlet reported the family will make an appearance next season to discuss the reunion show fight.
The Sun was the first to report on the firings, as Larry previously said: “We, the family have been let go from the show by the network. It’s unbelievable.”
