Not surprisingly, last night’s Teen Mom OG reunion focused largely on Ryan Edwards’ struggles with addiction.
If you watched the show this season, you know that Maci Bookout wanted Ryan to take a drug test before she would allow him to spend time alone with their son, Bentley.
And if you’re up on the latest reports about Ryan, you know that her fears were completely justified.
Last month, Ryan was arrested for a probation violation stemming charges of possession of heroin.
As we learned last night, Maci’s not saying “I told you so,” but she’s also not backing down from her assertion that Edwards is not fit to be a dad…
1. Facing the Music
The reunion was taped before many of the latest revelations about Ryan came to light. Still, it wasn’t an easy night for Maci’s baby daddy or for his long-suffering wife, Mackenzie Standifer.
2. What Maci Knew
Even before Ryan’s latest arrest, Bookout maintained that he was back on drugs. She insisted that he submit to testing as part of their custody agreement, but Edwards refused.
3. Where There’s Smoke
When Edwards refused to be tested. Maci concluded that he was still using. The past few weeks have sadly validated her claims.
4. Some Things Never Change…
On last night’s reunion show, Maci revealed to Dr. Drew Pinsky that she still believes Ryan is in no position to properly care for his son. Ryan basically confirmed as much in his own interview with Pinsky.
5. Reunion Ryan
Ryan spoke about his struggles with substance abuse, and even though he made it sound as though his addictions were well behind him, he also revealed that he’s putting very little effort into maintaining his sobriety.
6. A Troubling Revelation
Along with much of the audience, Pinsky was stunned by the revelation that Ryan has virtually lost contact with his therapist just months after leaving rehab. Dr. Drew was also shocked by the fact that Ryan blames the show for his inability to continue treatment.
