Ryan Edwards' Wife Mackenzie Cries Over Heroin Relapse Fears: 'It's Scary!'

Ryan Edwards may have completed a stint in rehab for heroin, but is he sober? On this week's Teen Mom OG, his wife Mackenzie feared he could relapse.

After bickering, Mackenzie revealed to a friend that her husband has been "super short-tempered."

"You can be angry, but you can't talk to me like that," she said. "This is hard for me too. I knew it would be hard, but I didn't know it would be like this. It's stress all the time. I'm so exhausted. I'm sad and depressed and angry."

She then explained how she fears he could relapse.

"When Ryan was in rehab it was easy," she continued. "I knew he couldn't get anything. He was safe. When we came home life punched us in the face. If he wanted it he could go get it. It's scary."

While out to dinner, Edwards seemed grateful to be clean.

"It's disgusting I let myself go like that," he told his wife. "It's just pathetic. I'm so glad I listened to you and got help. You've been very, very understanding. I couldn't have done this without you. Is there anything I could do to help you through this?"

She then broke down, explaining how she "lost" herself to be strong for him and their family.

"I appreciate that," he said. "You don't have to walk on eggshells to worry about me. Just because we have a fight doesn't mean I'm going to do something crazy or stupid. I don't want to be selfish."

While Edwards has kicked the habit, Tyler Baltierra told his mother that his dad Butch is using again.

"Everyone has a past, everyone has trauma," he said. "It's like come the f**k on. Get your s**t together."

He then told his wife Catelynn Lowell that he wants to talk to his father about going to rehab.

He told his dad, "A year ago you were working and it just seemed like everything was going pretty straight. It's so crazy how fast everything comes crashing down."

His father blamed his relapse on no longer being on parole.

"Parole makes you do your drug test as far as rehabilitation," Baltierra said. "But parole doesn't do anything for nobody. Maybe you're afraid of your freedom."


Farrah Abraham tried to mend her estranged relationship with her mother Debra Danielsen by inviting her to New York Fashion Week.

But they fought when Danielsen told Abraham that she invited her enemy Amber Portwood to her wedding.

"Welcoming drama," Abraham said. "I go to therapy to rid the negativity and drama in my life. Don't purposely put me in that position. Don't do that to your family. That's why we're not showing up."

In the end, Abraham regretted inviting her mother.

"I don't think my mom is here to be supportive or helpful," she said. "It's another baby I have to babysit. My daughter doesn't act like that. That's how she is."

Also on the episode, Portwood's new boyfriend Andrew Glennon met her baby daddy Gary Shirley.

"He seems nice," Shirley told his wife Kristina. "I want her to be happy."

But not all of her exes want happiness for Portwood, as her ex-fiancé Matt Baier told her, "When you're done with your man your husband is ready to come home."

Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9/8c on MTV.
