Amid her feud with Bookout, Mackenzie Standifer, Ryan Edwards’ wife was portrayed as the bad guy on Teen Mom. Now, in a new blog post, she slammed the popular TV show for faking scenes to ruin her image.
She started by explaining that being on TV is ‘very, very lonely,’ adding that ‘It is about showing the world the ‘story’ while knowingly opening yourself up to hatred and vile comments at your expense.’
Mackenzie reminded people that behind the cameras, the ‘reality’ TV stars are still human with real emotions, suffering, families, and opinions.
That is when she went on to slam the hit show for fakery.
‘Another common misconception… that what’s shown is 110% true. It is easy to believe that, but it is not right. It is easy to show the ‘half-truth’ and portray it as a whole. But that is ok because regardless of what happens, whether right or wrong, you are considered scum.’
For Standifer however, the show was never about getting famous, as she really wanted to give an accurate enough depiction of what’s like to be a teen mom.
‘I do this so that it is documented that just because you and your ‘baby daddy’ do not get along, you can still make it work.’
She then talked about that fact that she still has a lot of dreams and goals that make her all excited but all of that gets dimmed by the hateful words and even lies from people she’s never met but also from some that she knows very well.
As for why she decided to write such a passionate blog post, the reality TV star told us: ‘I wrote it because that is how I feel. I felt like that is what I needed to say to viewers.’
