Ryan and Mackenzie Edwards are often caught on camera fighting on Teen Mom OG – especially at their wedding. But a friend close to the couple exclusively revealed on RadarOnline.com’s podcast Teen Mom Time that she has seen producers create drama between the couple.

“They asked them questions designed to create a dramatic response,” Christian Cooper said of their wedding, which she attended. “They asked about prior relationships. 'How is this wedding different than your first wedding?' Who asks that? Obviously it’s going to upset a bride.”

Cooper, who is a Chattanooga-based photographer, explained how Mackenzie appeared “frustrated” at her wedding because of the questions about her first marriage.

“If Mackenzie drank mimosas at 8am that would’ve been horrible,” she said. “It would’ve been, 'bad Mackenzie!' They played it off like they were getting smashed. Really no! They made it look different than it was.”

Cooper agreed with their decision to not return to the show.

“MTV has no intention of making them a comeback story,” she said. “It was never going to be that for them. They’re the villains for Teen Mom. That wasn’t going to change.”

In their wedding scene, Ryan drank beer and took a shot despite leaving rehab only months later for heroin abuse.

The couple was also filmed fighting about money during the reception.

Ryan was arrested for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation on a past simple possession of heroin charge. He was released on July 31.

One charge of petition to revoke was dismissed, while he received six months probation and five public work days for the second petition to revoke charge.

He was issued a citation on March 12 for simple possession of heroin. The father of Bentley, 9, was arrested on March 27 for petition to revoke when he failed a court-ordered drug test.

Cooper said of how the couple, who is expecting a son is October, is doing after he was released, “They’re doing good. They were just watching TV and hanging out.”
