After seeing his actions and words play out on the aforementioned Teen Mom OG episode, Mackenzie went on to trash Josh to this tabloid as follows: “I have fought for this marriage for many years, and lately, I’ve really opened my eyes to what a horrible person he is."

Too little and late, dude
Mackenzie recently posted about Josh on social media, Tweeting on Tuesday, September 17: “Only an idiot like you will wait until I’ve fallen completely out of love with you to be everything you were supposed to be this entire time." We don't know to which, exactly, McKee is referring here.

12. It's all about me right now!

It's all about me right now!
"Me and Josh are friends and are on good terms,” she added to The Ashley. “I’m still taking this time for myself. I’m doing counseling, just so an outside eye looking in can give me guidance. I just had so much piling up all at once, I just need time and structure."

13. No negativity here!

“Me and Josh do love one another, that will never change,” Mackenzie emphasized. “God will guide me where I belong and I’m trusting in him right now and focusing on being there for my mom."

“I don’t want to look back one day and say I spent her last days being angry or miserable," she continued. "I think I got so caught up in life I stopped loving myself. If I can’t love myself first, I can’t give it to anyone else."

Are she and Josh still living together?
Yes, "for the most part," Mackenzie says.

16. Really? They are?

Really? They are?
“The home is ours, so it was kind of tough to say who leaves and who stays, because whoever leaves is pretty much homeless,” she explains. “But we have a left wing on the opposite side of the house with a bedroom and bathroom. [Josh] left for 2 weeks and when we decided to be civil he moved back in for the most part.”
