RYAN Edwards’ wife Mackenzie shared a cryptic quote about ‘not giving up’ amid their feud with Maci Bookout.
The Teen Mom stars have been in a nasty back-and-forth over Maci and Ryan’s 12-year-old son, Bentley, as well as the firing of the Edwards clan from Teen Mom.
On Thursday Mackenzie, 24, shared on Instagram: “Not seeing results? Feel like giving up? Consider this: The LAST thing to grown on a fruit tree is the fruit.”
The hopeful quote comes after the Teen Mom OG premiere on Tuesday showed the feuding continue.
Maci accused Ryan’s parents, Jen and Larry, of “blatantly ignoring” her son Bentley’s feelings, which led to the big blow-out fight during the reunion.
After the 30-year-old called out Mackenzie’s in-laws, Ryan’s wife tried to go a different route and posted a more positive cryptic message on her Instagram.
She shared a quote attributed to Zig Ziglar that read: “Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.”
Mackenzie, Ryan, and his parents were fired from the MTV reality series following a fight between Ryan’s dad Larry and Maci’s husband Taylor McKinney during last season’s reunion special.
But now The Sun can exclusively reveal tensions were already running high between the show’s producers and Ryan before that.
He claimed the last straw for him came when he found out that they had taken down a US flag on his front porch, as production said it was “in their way.”
Ryan told The Sun: “What got me is when they took my flag down off the porch. They laid it on the ground and when I went down to pick it up they told me it was in their shot.
“I got real angry because it was an American flag and they said it was in their way. I said ‘Either put it back on the post or leave’ and that was the last time they ever came back, I guess.”
Ryan added that he and his wife Mackenzie were contemplating leaving the show before the firing.
Speaking about his life since moving on from Teen Mom, Ryan said: “We’ve been doing good since leaving the show, just kinda hanging out. Everybody’s happy and enjoying not dealing with MTV.
LIFE AFTER MTV
“I’m not resentful, MTV is all about making money and s***, and that’s all right.”
Despite their exit from the series, that hasn’t stopped the ongoing fighting between exes and co-parents Ryan and Maci, along with their families.
Mackenzie recently slammed Maci as a “hypocrite” who ignores her calls and refuses to make peace.
The reality star exclusively told The Sun that she has twice tried to contact Maci to overcome the bitter feud between their families.
It comes after Ryan, 33, exclusively told The Sun that he hasn’t been able to see his and Maci’s 12-year-old son Bentley for over a month.
Mom-of-three Mackenzie told The Sun that since then she has tried to mend the relationship for the sake of Bentley and his half-siblings, but has received nothing but silence in return.
‘I REACHED OUT’
She said: “I have reached out to Maci to make peace and settle the score a couple of times and I’ve heard nothing back.
“I sent her a text a couple of weeks ago and one in March.
“I just said I would love to meet up and talk over lunch to clear the air and make things better.
“Maci is all about Maci and anybody that gets in Maci’s way or doesn’t do what Maci wants gets cut out.”
