Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards says that he is sober from heroin – his drug of choice – after his rehab stint last summer, but it doesn’t seem Edwards is interested in complete sobriety when it comes to other substances. Was the 30-year-old really drunk and high at his own wedding?
In a new preview clip from the next Teen Mom OG episode, Edwards is drinking what looks like a beer, and before entering the church for his November nuptials with Mackenzie Sandifer, he says, “I want to go get a shot real quick.”
The shocking scene continued when a friend asked him if he had his vows ready, and Edwards replied that he was just going to wing it. Then, when a groomsman told him to say “I love you. I’m here for you,” the reality star said that he wasn’t sure he could make that promise.
Of course, fans know that this is all part of Edwards and Standifer’s large second wedding ceremony that included family and friends. They originally tied the knot last season, in May, and it seemed that day ended up being a wake-up call for Edwards.
Producers featured the May wedding in last year’s season finale, and it had one of the most memorable scenes in Teen Mom OG history. As cameras filmed Edwards driving Standifer to that wedding, he slurred his words and then fell asleep at the wheel while high on Xanax.
After MTV aired the episode, Edwards checked into rehab.
The November wedding wasn’t the first time fans have seen Edwards drinking. In a previous episode, he drank beer at his bachelor party in Las Vegas.
At the time, a source close to Edwards said that he was sober from drugs and alcohol, but recent scenes from the show seem to prove otherwise.
Apparently, Edwards’ ex and baby mama, Maci Bookout, isn’t convinced that he is completely clean. She has refused to let him spend alone time with their 8-year-old son Bentley until he passes a drug test.
Things haven’t been all that great between the exes since Edwards returned from rehab, and that was crystal clear in a recent episode when a communication breakdown between the two resulted in Edwards missing out on trick-or-treating with his son.
Edwards, Standifer, and her son Hudson were supposed to meet up with Bookout and her husband, Taylor McKinney, Bentley, and sibling Jayde and Maverick.
It has been an annual tradition for Bookout and Bentley to join Edwards’ parents, Larry and Jen, for trick-or-treating, whether he shows up or not.
This year, she planned to meet Larry and Jen at 6 o’clock and didn’t see the point in including Edwards in the plans because he never communicates with her.
Somehow, lines got crossed, and Edwards and Standifer texted that they had to leave by 6, which meant they thought Bookout showed up late.
Standifer thought for sure that Bookout was trying to sabotage her husband’s bond with his son.
Fans can watch the ongoing drama on new episodes of Teen Mom OG that air on MTV, Monday nights at 9 pm ET.
