During last night's second part of the Teen Mom OG reunion, fans got to see the entirety of the fight between Larry and Taylor as the two fought over Ryan's broken relationship with Bentley, 12.

After Taylor and Maci walked out following his claims that Larry and Jen needed to put Bentley over Ryan, the grandparents chuckled in triumph.

Dr. Drew then interpreted Taylor's outburst as his anger for Ryan coming through, saying: "What I saw Taylor doing is that he's angry at Ryan."

Jen quickly chipped in and said: "Is he angry at Ryan or is he jealous of Ryan? What is it?"

Dr. Drew quickly shut down that notion and said: "Well no because before you guys sat down, he opened up with a bunch of things he saw Ryan say about Maci and he was hot."

Jen, who still doesn't believe her son has ever spoken badly about Maci, said: "Let me see what Ryan said about Maci because I have no idea."



Larry added: "We don't have a clue. But there again, we have no control over what Ryan says."

As fans watched at home, some couldn't help but wonder why exactly Taylor would be jealous of Ryan when Maci's current husband is preferred over the father of three.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "Why on earth would Taylor be jealous of Ryan as yeah ok Ryan may be Bentleys biological father but Taylor is the MAN raising him, Taylor is the Dad who stepped up! I would say Jen and Larry are jealous of him!"

A second one agreed and said: "I am just watching the #TeenMomOGreunion and it's disappointing to see Jen and Larry say the things they are saying about Taylor. Jealous of Ryan?! WTF."


A third one chimed in, tweeting: "@TeenMom_OG reunion, the AUDACITY of ryan’s mom, Jen, to even UTTER the words, “is taylor doing this because he’s JEALOUS of RYAN?”

"how much more delusional can a parent possibly get!? you’re son is a piece of garbage and so are jen and larry for creating such a monster."

Other fans slammed Jen and Larry as parents, commenting: "Jen and Larry are sorry excuses for parents! Taylor jealous of Ryan are you on crack Jen. Get some brains."

And a fifth one tweeted: "Taylor and Maci are 100% right in this situation and Ryan, Jen and Larry are 100% wrong.

"Thank goodness Bentley has Taylor for a dad. And no Jen, he’s not “jealous” of Ryan. Who would be?? Ugh."


Fans will know that following the filming of the reunion, Jen and Larry – along with Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie – were all fired from Teen Mom OG.

Ryan called being let go from the show a “blessing in disguise.”

He said in an exclusive interview with The Sun: “We are so happy that we are no longer doing it. This is the happiest I’ve been since before I started taking pain killers. It makes me real happy to see my wife so happy so I couldn’t ask for much more.”

Ryan added: “Mackenzie’s doing her thing with her business and I am starting my own fabrication business building off-road race cars and racing them as well.”


Ryan previously told The Sun Maci got the family fired out of “retaliation” after Larry fought with her husband at the reunion. 

Ryan, who is also dad to son Jagger, 2, Stella, 1, and stepson Hudson, exclusively told The Sun: “Maci is in fear that my mom and dad will start telling the truth. She will always fight to have us off the show.”

Ryan’s father told The Sun in October that the Teen Mom OG dad is “not allowed” to see Bentley, as the family “hasn’t gotten to see him very much.”

He previously said of Ryan and Maci: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed. 

“Ryan wasn’t going to comply with everything she wants and needs and we’ve been shut down.

“Bentley right now, we can’t even see him, they’re not even allowed to see him. It is what it is.” 


Maci has been on the outs with Ryan ever since his jail and rehab stints for heroin abuse.

On the most recent season, Bentley refused to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their strained relationship. 

Maci has taken to Twitter to slam Ryan and Mackenzie, who blamed her for Bentley's decision. 

When Ryan called Maci a “spiteful evil b***h” because Bentley didn’t want to go to his brother Jagger’s birthday at their home, Maci tweeted: "I really wanted to post some 'petty b*tch' (and hilarious) comments, but I'll wait until they can tell me the definition of 'petty' without googling it and reading it aloud.” 

Then, when Mackenzie called Maci a “petty b***h” for keeping Bentley from them on last week's episode, she went off after the episode. 

Maci fired: “When that girl says 'if it has any effect on you seeing B' & then he says 'she does that all the time' I’m like hold the damn phone.

"Do I have control over his bio dad showing up to 5 out of the 100 school/sport events Benny has? & why does he never call/text B?”

She added: "I’d rather be a petty b***h than a stupid one. #allday.”

On the reunion, Taylor said: “Bentley is becoming a young man. I think he’s shown the Edwards that he’s found his voice. He can think for himself.”

He said of Ryan: “Ya’ll saw the clip. He sat there and called my wife a b***h. In past seasons the things he’s done to Bentley, poking fun at him, making fun of him, calling him a cry baby. Enough is enough. Grow up and be a man. Don’t be a coward. Come sit out here and sit on the couch with us.”

He said how Ryan won’t speak to them because Maci is a “trigger” for his sobriety. 

When asked if they think Ryan is sober now, Taylor responded: “No I don’t. This is our opinion. It’s based on when he shows up to something or when you see him sitting there in a scene and he can’t hardly keep his eyes open. That’s not a place I feel safe to send our son with that guy.”
