MTV always seems to show ‘Teen Mom OG’ dad, Ryan being unpleasant, complacent or absent all together… but finally a scene in which we see the softer side of Mr. Edwards!
Not only does Ryan show up to Bentley’s birthday party without a fuss but he gets along well with Maci and actually contributes socially to the get together! He holds baby Jayde (which is the cutest thing ever by the way) and jokes around with Bentley. Maci even allows Bentley to go to his dad’s house that night as long as Ryan takes him to school the next day. Progress!
Ryan has made great strides in his parenting since Benny was in diapers. Lets hope that he and Maci continue to get along and co-parent!
Midway through ‘Teen Mom OG’ season 5 Maci Bookout decided to remover her son Bentley from the show when she found out that Farrah Abraham was going to be brought back on by MTV. He didn’t appear on the rest of that season the whole situation caused a lot of tension and drama between Farrah and Maci.
Thankfully though we WILL be seeing Bentley in the upcoming season of the show. We caught a few glimpses of Bentley in the new Extended Trailer and according to WetPaint.com (who was lucky enough to watch the first new episode already!) Maci explains right off the bat why she has decided to allow Bentley to film.
While Maci and Bentley are getting their mics on in the first episode Maci says “that people know who he is anyway (with or without association with Farrah), so she made the executive decision for everyone to film as a family this time.“
Yay! We will see the adorable Benny and his new baby sister Jayde in the new season!
‘Teen Mom OG’ star Maci Bookout and son Bentley posed for a quick hospital bed selfie this morning before Bentley headed off for surgery. According to Maci’s instagram post Bentley is scheduled for a tonsillectomy today. Which is a pretty common routine surgery that we are sure will go just fine. Benny seems to be in good spirits!
During last week’s episode of ‘Teen Mom OG’ Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell were all informed that their old co-star Farrah Abraham would be returning to the show. Amber and Catelynn were okay with Farrah coming back but Maci was devastated. She told ‘Teen Mom OG’ producer Morgan Freeman that her “feelings were hurt” and that she was “pissed off” that MTV would do that behind her back. (Because obviously Maci runs this show!) So she decides that she no longer wants to be a part of the show and kicked out her film crew.
Thankfully Maci had a change of heart and on the next ‘Teen Mom OG’ after show Maci explains why she decided to return to filming. “After I left the show I was able to move away from my emotions and my anger from MTV kind of throwing me a good look loop and decide that I wanted to be on the show. I think it is important for all four of us to be on the show. I was able to create a situation that I thought was good for Bentley and good for myself and the show.“
That situation will be filming without Bentley being shown on camera. “It had been a previous conversation when they first approached me about doing the show in the first place. They knew that my only concerns were if all four of us were gonna be on the show together that I would just take Bentley out of filming.“
Thankfully Bentley doesn’t care much about fame or being filmed, according to Maci he loves the crew but hates the filming.
