Mackenzie Standifer: I’m Standing By Ryan Edwards!
Back in June, Ryan Edwards married Mackenzie Standifer in a rushed ceremony that took place in a parking lot while Ryan was struggling to maintain consciousness.
Despite those auspicious beginnings, married life hasn’t been particularly kind to the Edwards.
For starters, there was the business of Ryan driving to his wedding high on prescription painkillers.
He checked into rehab shortly after saying “I do,” but that’s still a pretty major hurdle for a couple young newlyeds to clear right at the outset.
And things only got more complicated from there.
Most recently, Ryan was caught using Tinder to try and cheat on Mackenzie – who, let’s take a moment to remember, he’s only been married to for two months.
Ryan was caught red-handed soliciting sex from a 19-year-old fan, which is a pretty humiliating development for both Edwards and Standifer.
Quite understandably, Mackenzie remained tight-lipped on the situation at first, but now she’s giving fans some insight into how she feels about her flaming trainwreck of a marriage.
“Strength is what we gain from the madness we survive,” Mackenzie she recently wrote on Instagram, sounding very much like she’s quoting Littlefinger from Game of Thrones.
“The things I’ve been through in my life that were meant to break me have made me who I am today,” Mackenzie added.
It seems Mackenzie meant for the cryptic comments to serve as a confirmation that she and Edwards are still together, but they were widely misinterpreted by fans.
Some felt it was her way of saying that she and Ryan had split, and one went so far as to cite a tabloid story as evidence that the marriage was over.
That’s when Mackenzie decided to get specific and clarify the matter.
“It’s false,” she wrote. “He’s actually right here next to me.”
So there you have it.
For better or worse, Mackenzie and Ryan are still a married couple.
We suppose it’s a good thing that they’re still trying to make it work.
We just hope Ryan realizes he has an insanely deep hole to try and dig his way out of.
