'Teen Mom OG': Mackenzie doubts her relationship with Josh after mom's death, asks 'why can't I talk to you?'
Mackenzie and Josh McKee have been having trouble in their marriage ever since she found out that Josh cheated on her. However, things have taken a turn for worse as the couple tries to reach an understanding after Mackenzie's mother's death. Angie Douthit died after battling cancer and her death has taken a toll on Mackenzie.
In the latest episode (May 5), Mackenzie admitted that she hasn't been doing well ever since her mother's death. She confessed about feeling paralyzed and not having the motivation to stay alive. While she made it clear that she won't be taking a drastic step because she has three lovely children, she did add that her relationship with Josh wasn't going the way it was supposed to.
Mackenzie tried to open up to Josh about how she was feeling but her emotions were not accepted in the way she would have liked. Josh did not seem happy that Mackenzie hinted at having suicidal thoughts. He reminded her that she had three children and decided to walk away from the conversation.
Mackenzie tried to explain it to him how she was more expressive with her emotions as compared to him, who bottles up all his emotions. Mackenzie tried to explain it to him how it is not a good practice and it is important for their children to know that it is alright to express emotions.
Josh did not feel comfortable talking about this on camera and decided to walk away. Mackenzie broke down crying and complained to the producer that this had been his reaction every time she tried to open up about what had happened. She decided to call him and confront him for what he had done.
She admitted she was not too happy to have him walking out of situations like this. Josh confessed he did not know how to deal with her because he did not know the reason she constantly cried. Mackenzie felt helpless and said that she won't tell him anything. The pair later decided to sit together and talk about what had happened.
Mackenzie explained that it did not make sense for Josh to say he is there for her and then walk away from the situation where she is trying to tell him what was wrong. However, the conversation did not go as planned as Josh decided to walk away again and failed to even make eye contact with her.
Mackenzie broke down crying and told Josh that he hates her. She asked him why he could not be there for her when she needs him. "Why can't I talk to you?" she asked. Hearing these words, Josh apologized to Mackenzie and admitted that he had been working on himself while adding that he loved her.
With everything going on around her and things taking place one after the other, it looks like the death of her mother has Mackenzie questioning everything around her.
'Teen Mom OG' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET on MTV.
