Let’s be real here…
Maci Bookout and Mackenzie Edwards don’t like each other.
It’s clear that a lot of this drama has transpired on the pages of Social Media (again…give it a rest for a week ladies, maybe it’ll improve y’all’s happiness by a bit?).
It’s more than apparent that a lot of this tension has to do with how things are going with Bentley. Many fans were quick to point out how Ryan Edwards was very mean to Bentley during numerous situations that spanned out across the entire show.
Ryan and his parents, Jen and Larry were most recently fired from the show, which led to even more fuel to an already insane fire. Mackenzie would blame Maci for the firing, stating that she had a lot to do with the family's mind-blowing termination from the program. Mackenzie would say the following about the termination:
“Nothing happened, literally, nothing. We just got a call yesterday from [producers] Morgan [J. Freeman] and Larry [Musnik] at MTV. Maci’s agent went above their heads and went to Viacom and said that they wanted to focus on all of Maci’s abilities and whatever she does and that we took up the time on the show that she could be using to show all that.”
Again, most of the tension comes from how Bentley is being raised. In 2020, Maci would reveal she was upset with Mackenzie on how she was handling Bentley’s wrestling and nutrition plan. Maci stated that she supported Bentley’s decision to make weight for the wrestling team and that she was helping him with his diet. Mackenzie would retort and call the idea “extreme” as well as not be too supportive of the whole idea.
Tensions continue to rise…again following the termination of Ryan and his parents. Things don’t look to be getting better and to be frank…this can’t be good for Bentley.
