Earlier this year Ryan Edwards, his parents, and Mackenzie Edwards were released from the Teen Mom franchise.
The feud between Ryan/Mackenzie and Maci/Taylor had reached a severe boiling point and it appears as though the result was a life-changing termination.
However…it appears as though the termination was a blessing in disguise, as Mackenzie opened up about her current life status.
On an April 5th post, the former Teen Mom star elaborated on the departure.
“I think it’s time to address the elephant in the room and no we are not doing Teen Mom at this point in time… We’ve been having this conversation for a long time but it’s hard to pull the trigger on something like that. But we got the phone call saying we’re not going to be doing Teen Mom anymore and we both felt at peace.”
She also elaborated on how Ryan is now focused on his recovery and building his dune buggies, and she’s directing her focus on a fitness plan.
“I have been putting together a fitness plan since I started my fitness journey close to a year ago,” she continued. “I had decided that I was going to curate a plan with trainers and I got a team together and we are finally making that dream a reality and I’m so excited.”
Touching back on the departure, Mackenzie stated:
“It’s like a weight lifted off my shoulders… We’re gonna move on. We’re gonna live our lives. We’re gonna do our jobs and, you know, have a normal life,”
Despite leaving the franchise and “moving forward” that clearly doesn’t mean that they’re not in the public eye. A recent Instagram post has led fans to believe that she is considering leaving Ryan.
Ryan is a recovering addict with a very daunting prison record. Pictures surfaced of Ryan a few months ago, which led co-stars and fans to believe he had relapsed. The post read as follows:
“…she remembered who she was and the game changed,” Mackenzie shared via Instagram on April 30. The only caption she provided for the post was three emojis: “🖤💥🥊”
Of course fans were quick to scrutinize, with some automatically saying she was leaving Ryan. Mackenzie however, has yet to elaborate on the matter.
