Mackenzie McKee has experienced all the downsides of Teen Mom fame with few of the benefits.
She's been living in the public eye and has often found herself at the center of heated controversies -- but all the while, she wasn't receiving a paycheck from MTV.
That's soon to change, as it was revealed on Monday that Mackenzie will be joining the cast of Teen Mom OG.
The news has received a mixed response from fans, with many applauding the Teen Mom 3 alum for finally making her way back on TV full-time -- and others wishing she'd remained out of the spotlight.
As for McKee's TMOG colleagues -- well, it seems she'll have to work hard to win them over.
Here's everything we know about the situation thus far:
It's official -- Mackenzie McKee is once again a member of the Teen Mom family.
Of course, Mackenzie is not totally inexperienced when it comes to reality TV stardom. Like Briana DeJesus, she got her start on the short-lived Teen Mom 3.
Fighting For Her Spot
For several years, every time there's been a cast shake-up, McKee's name has been bandied about as a possible replacement. But she always came up empty-handed -- until now.
An Odd Arrangement
In an unexpected twist, however, McKee will not be appearing on the show at the start of its upcoming season, which premieres on June 10.
A Late Start
“Mackenzie has been filming,” a source told Radar Online. “She will appear in a few episodes towards the end of the season.”
And it seems McKee is not yet guaranteed a full-time spot on the show.
