... and she's back!
On Monday night's brand new episode of Teen Mom OG, Mackenzie McKee made her return to the franchise that made her semi-famous all those years ago as a cast member on Teen Mom 3.
And she wasted no time stirring up the sort of controversy that Bristol Palin, who McKee has basically replaced, could never bring to the series table.
After filling viewers in on the major changes in her life — such as her relationship troubles with husband Josh and the health status of her mother, Angie Douthit, who has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer — Mackenzie jumped right back into the swing of things.
By which we mean the following:
She accused Josh of cheating!
McKee explained on air how she's struggling to keep up with her children while they were home for the summer.
Moreover, since rodeo season was approaching (meaning Josh will be on the road for long stretches of time), the reality star was unsure how to handle all these kids and keep up with work.
And then the real drama kicked in...
After Josh left to compete in a rodeo, Mackenzie received a text from a woman who alleged that her husband went out to a bar and cheated on her -- and Josh was with him at the time.
Because their romance had been solid for awhile, Mackenzie had no idea how to react to this claim.
But she chose to be direct.
When Josh arrived home, she grilled him about this supposed night out without her.
What happened? Did he cheat on her?!?
“There was no affection or anything like that there,” he said.
“I’m just here to tell you that I was at a bar, and I’d like you to trust me when I’m getting a few drinks at a bar . . . I was just avoiding the fight, and I was wrong.”
Josh tried to reassure his concerned wife that he’d never go behind her back by being with another woman -- but McKee didn’t seem convinced, especially once Josh said he couldn’t promise he’d always tell her where he was going.
(Editor's Note: What the heck, dude?!?)
Fromt here, Mackenzie went to see her parents to discuss the situation, getting an update from her mom in the process.
It turns out that doctors wanted to start Angie on a new type of chemo, yet she wasn’t sure she wanted to go through with it.
Why the heck not?!?
“I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that only God can heal me,” Angie said, continuing as follows:
“The only reason I’m continuing with all these treatments is, yes, I want to live, but it’s for you guys. I don’t want you to think, ‘Mom gave up. Mom quit. Mom stopped.’ I’m not gonna do that.”
We really can't imagine going through anything like this.
“I just want to see you get better. That’s all I want, and if it doesn’t happen I’m gonna get really mad,” Mackenzie said through tears.
“It’s like all my siblings were this perfect cup of glass and I was a cup of glass that was shattered, and you were the glue that was holding it all together. When that glue melts, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Quite the debut of Mackenzie McKee, huh?
Are you glad she's back on screen?
