Mackenzie McKee may be returning to reality TV as Farrah Abraham’s replacement on Teen Mom OG, but could her possible new role put a strain on her tumultuous marriage? While on RadarOnline.com’s podcast Teen Mom Time, McKee exclusively revealed how Teen Mom 3 affected her marriage to husband Josh.
Although McKee could not “confirm or deny” if she’s replacing Abraham, she did open up about her upcoming special with MTV.
“The first person I asked was Josh because I didn’t want to do it if he wasn’t on the same page as me,” she explained of her small-screen return. “We were split up and seeing other people during Teen Mom 3.”
McKee confessed how the couple “pretended to be together” during filming of the show, which was canceled after one season.
“He would run and I just had to cry, ‘Oh my boyfriend is missing,'” she admitted. “It was honestly horrible.”
Although the couple fixed their marriage and welcomed their daughter Jaxie in 2014 when cameras stopped rolling, their marriage soon “fell apart all over again.”
“I was in a really dark place,” she confessed. “Then I had our third child Broncs in 2016 and it got even worse. He actually left and ended up filing for divorce. I think we were separated for two months.”
McKee was accused of cheating on her husband in January 2017 when he went on a social media rant about the alleged affair. McKee denied the allegations against her at the time.
Fortunately for McKee and her husband, they have worked through their issues just in time for their return to MTV.
“Since then we opened up our own businesses and we got a house that’s a very nice home for our kids,” she said. “But we’re still a hot mess!”
