While she originally said it was revisiting the location of her 2016 wedding to Tom D'Agostino — which ended in divorce seven months later — that drove her to drink that night, therapy made the 52-year-old realize another life event factored into her drinking: a scary car accident she'd gotten into almost twenty years ago.

According to a recent report, a pregnant Mackenzie Standifer is in total "denial" about the Teen Mom OG star's drug issues. As you surely know, Mrs. Edwards defended the MTV vet after he was arrested last month on a petition to revoke warrant. Following the highly publicized arrest, Mackenzie shared that "everything is fine" and claimed the recent jail stint was a part of a previous legal case.

On Friday, MTV released a deleted scene from the car trip that Miz Bookout took with Teen Mom OG costar Tyler Baltierra to visit
