Maci Bookout's Ex Ryan Edwards Allegedly Threatens To Shoot Her Husband Taylor McKinney

Plus, Tyler admits he's unhappy in his marriage, Amber gives birth, & more!

The moms are back and the drama is just getting started! 

Maci Bookout’s relationship with her first baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, is worse than ever before following his May of 2017 rehab stint. After last season’s finale, the mother-of-three and her ex haven’t had any contact regarding their son, Bentley. Unfortunately, their relationship is so bad that it resulted in Ryan calling Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, making heart stopping threats. “I just got a pretty disturbing phone call from Ryan,” Maci’s husband said to her. Taylor explained that a tweet he sent out resulted in Ryan calling him and threatening to come to their home and “put a bullet” in his head as well as “shoot up” their family home. Left completely in shock, Maci suggested the two contact the police and file a report so it will be on record. The couple ended up requesting a protection order for their family against Ryan.  Following a court appearance, the two revealed that they were granted a two year restraining order against Ryan protecting everyone but Bentley. They were happy with the result and hoped that it will still give Ryan the ability to start acting like a father.

 

Catelynn Lowell was still in treatment for depression and anxiety, which wasn’t easy for anyone. After realizing that she needed to continue treatment, her husband, Tyler Baltierra, was left to raise their one daughter, Novalee, and run their business alone once again. The reality star opened up to his mother, Kim, about how it wasn’t easy and admitted to being “sucked dry” while trying to balance it all. Throughout Cate’s time at treatment, Tyler confessed that he is struggling with keeping his empathy for Cate. “No it’s not depressing, it’s repulsing,” Tyler said about seeing his wife in her robe on the couch prior to her checking into treatment. He explained, “That’s why I want to go to therapy. I’m losing sympathy and empathy.” Later on, Tyler attended therapy and opened up about how he is “exhausted” emotionally because he is constantly in a “caretaker” position. The therapist explained to him that “everyone has their limits” when it comes to caring for others and he replied, “That’s what I’m worried about.” He added, “I got some scary thoughts in my head as far as everything. Like, are we suppose to be together? I just need change.” The father began to break down into tears saying, “If someone asked if I’m happy in my marriage I would say ‘absolutely not,’ and I haven’t been for a couple years.”

 

Baby James is here! Amber Portwood welcomed her second child, a baby boy, with her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. For some time now, Amber and her first baby daddy, Gary Shirley, have been getting along great and co-parenting Leah has been easy. Following James’ arrival, Gary, his wife Kristina, Leah, and Emilee, all went to visit the newborn in the hospital! Now that their little family has started, Andrew gushed about being a father for the first time and the role he has taken on. He also couldn’t help but reveal some exciting proposal details! “Everyday is tremendous with her to be honest. It’s great,” he gushed to the camera crew. “This is my family. Rock solid. Written in stone. As far as rings go, I’ve already been looking at places.” Now that little James arrived, Amber admitted that she does feel a lot of sadness from the fact that she was not able to be the type of mother she is now for Leah. However, she is looking forward to the future with her new family of four!

 

Bristol Palin has made her Teen Mom OG debut! The mother-of-three had a girls weekend celebrating a Bachelorette party. The new MTV star opened up about the difficulty she dealt with when she welcomed her first child with her now ex-husband, Dakota Meyers, because she was used to being “independent.” She admitted, “It’s been a difficult time for us both in this marriage.” Later on, Bristol confronted her husband after noticing he seemed “quiet” during their daughter’s soccer game. After arriving home, the fight exploded. Dakota yelled that all he hopes for is comfort from his wife during the times he experiences panic attacks, but the way he approaches the situation isn’t what Bristol agrees with. She explained that while he experiences those panic attack moments, he says hurtful things that insinuates she is a “bad mother.” Dakota admitted to saying hurtful things, but explained to the producers that he quickly apologizes for his words. The fight quickly escalated and Dakota left.

 

Cheyenne Floyd made her Teen Mom OG debut! The mother-of-one explained how MTV audiences might recognize her from her previous appearances on Are You The One? and The Challenge. Cheyenne also explained that she and her baby daddy, Cory Wharton, had a one night stand while she also had a boyfriend. Due to the timing, she wasn’t sure who the father was and 6 months after her daughter, Ryder, was born, they took a paternity test and found out it was Cory. Even though Cheyenne and Cory are doing amazing at co-parenting their daughter, they still have to deal with some bumps in the road. For example, Cheyenne’s boyfriend, Zach, lives at her house which Cory isn’t happy about because their daughter is seeing him more. But Cory isn’t the only one struggling with his relationship with Cheyenne and the family. Zach opened up about the role he hopes to play in Ryder’s life and has no intentions on taking anything away from Cory. He explained that he hopes to just be present for support and to be included.
