And the saga continues. In a move we definitely did not see coming, Maci Bookout has filed for an order of protection against her ex, Ryan Edwards -- actually, make that two orders. One of them has Maci's husband, Taylor McKinney, listed, and the second is the one that lists Maci and her three children, Bentley, Jayde, and Maverick. 

  • Apparently a judge is going to hear the case in court on April 2, so it looks like next week could bring some more answers as far as whether or not Ryan's visitation with Bentley will be affected.

  • One thing's for sure though -- Ryan is having one heck of a few days.

    When the news broke that Ryan's wife Mackenzie Standifer is pregnant with the couple's first child, it sounded like things had potentially turned a corner for Ryan, as far as getting his life back on track goes. But then we learned that Ryan was arrested on a drug-related charge the same day the pregnancy news came out -- and then claims surfaced that Ryan is back on Tinder and trying to stray from his marriage even though he has a baby on the way. 

  • We kind of wondered why Maci had not reacted to the news that Ryan is going to be a father again.

    And now we know the answer. While we aren't sure when the orders of protection were filed, or what exactly prompted Maci to file them in the first place, it's safe to assume that she wouldn't have taken such drastic measures unless she felt it was absolutely necessary for her safety, as well as the safety of her children. 

  • We'll be keeping an eye out for updates on the status of the case as they are available.

    In the meantime, we sincerely hope that Ryan and Mackenzie are taking the week's turn of events to heart, in terms of making sure he's getting the help he needs to be on a path to sobriety once and for all.
