Former ‘Teen Mom’ star Mackenzie Standifer Edwards may be done with the MTV series, but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped working. Fans began speculating about her new appearance after she posted a rare selfie on Instagram.
Standifer, 25, posed in her car wearing Figs blue smocks. She leaned her head on her hand and stared at the camera.
Her hair color has also changed since viewers last saw her. In August Instagram posts, Edwards had long dark brown hair. Since then, she’s brightened up her look and either got rid of her extensions or cut her natural hair.
Fans on Reddit predicted she might have landed a job in the medical field, which is why she wore gowns.
“Looks like she finally got a real job. Good for them”, one person wrote.
“Peeling??? Work!? bless it”, another wrote.
Others praised Standifer for appearing “relatable.”
“Honestly, I can’t hate this at all. This is probably the most normal photo she’s ever taken.” Said.
Heavy reached out to Standifer to confirm her new job, but received no response.
Standifer is married to Ryan Edwards. He shares his 14-year-old son, Bentley, with his ex-girlfriend, “Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout.
Standifer and Edwards also have two children: 3-year-old Jagger and 2-year-old Stella.
Standifer doesn’t want to go back to TV
After being fired from Teen Mom in March 2021, Standifer told Debra Danielsen on the first episode of her podcast: RHEB3L – STRENGTHthat she and her husband Ryan Edwards were not interested in returning to reality TV.
“I don’t think television is a place for me or for Ryan anymore,” Standifer told Danielsen. “I think the ship has sailed. I’m not entirely sure I really have anything interesting to do besides just being a mom. And I’m fine with that.”
“But I think because of the show and because of TV, I now have a platform on social media where I can bring positivity, encouragement and empowerment to other people,” she added.
Since that interview, Standifer has been pretty quiet on social media. Her last post was shared on August 26th.
Standifer joked about being “dramatic.”
Standifer’s last Instagram post was a video she made via TikTok. She pretended to be in the back seat of a police car and winked at the camera.
“Me when it becomes illegal to be dramatic,” she wrote on the Video.
In the previous post, Standifer addressed people who commented on their 19-year-old looks.
She kept writing above in the video“If someone pulls out a picture of me six years ago and says, ‘That doesn’t even look like you.'”
She mouthed the video to “burn it,” then added the caption, “But really, internet DELETE.”
Standifer also hinted that viewers did “no idea” what her relationship with her husband is like. “When you read some drama online about your family but people have no idea how good it really is,” she captioned the video.
She leans back in a chair and laughs. “But really,” Standifer wrote in the caption.
