If you watch Teen Mom online, then you’re likely aware of the recent drama surrounding Ryan Edwards’ alleged substance abuse.
This week’s episode saw Maci Bookout breaking down in tears over what she feels is her ex’s potentially deadly downward spiral.
Bookout vented her frustrations over the lack of concern demonstrated by the other members of Edwards’ inner circle, including his parents, Jen and Larry, and his fiancee, Mackenzie Standifer.
Ryan and Mackenzie got engaged back in December of 2016, and they’re scheduled to tie the knot in November.
Initially, Mackenzie seemed to be in denial about Ryan’s drug use.
During this week’s episode she took to social media and slammed fans for their “ignorant” comments about Edwards.
She also fired off a tweet that seemed to be directed squarely at Maci:
“Here’s a thought … maybe instead of making assumptions and tearing people down, you could spend that time praying for us instead,” Standifer wrote.
Now, however, it seems Mackenzie may have done an about-face and finally come to recognize the severity of her fiance’s problem.
She has yet to speak openly about her change of heart, but according to members of her family, action is being taken to ensure that Ryan sobers up before he and Mackenzie exchange vows later this year.
“We’ll get together and talk about it,” Mackenzie’s father, Bob Standifer Jr., recently told Radar Online.
“Mackenzie and Ryan are adults. I won’t talk without them present. Anything that we talk about, we’re all going to sit down together.”
For her part, Mackenzie is reportedly taking part in the effort to convince Ryan to enter rehab, but she’s still not publicly acknowledging that her relationship is anything less than perfect.
“Come talk to me when you’ve walked one damn mile in my shoes. Then see where you’re at. Until then, hush,” she tweeted yesterday.
Hey, as long as she’s finally understanding that her soon-to-be-husband needs help, she can deny whatever she wants to fans.

Here’s hoping he’s able to find the help he needs.
