EXCLUSIVE: Mackenzie McKee – I Wanted To Die

Teen Mom 3 alum Mackenzie McKee has always been open about her personal life with her fans. Recently, we caught up with her exclusively to talk about a time in her life when she was suffering with bad postpartum depression (PPD).

“It’s for sure something that took me a while to open up about,” McKee began with sharing. “People take my stories and twist them and people can have such rude things to say about touchy and personal subject.”

“It was the worst case of PPD I knew could exist,” she continued. “I am not a negative person, I’m not crazy, and the actions I was making was just not me. Nothing in me felt worthy anymore, I stopped having a passion for working out (big sign something is wrong with me). I had given up and just wanted to die. It got to a point when I wrote everyone notes because I knew I was coming to an end and needed to figure a way out to end my life.”

“I found myself in my own home, my husband was gone, kids were gone, my parents had had it,” she added. “I was alone and the amount of pain I felt is unbearable.”

EXCLUSIVE: Mackenzie McKee Slams ’16 and Pregnant’ Returning

Back in February, a casting notice for a new season of MTV’s ‘16 and Pregnant’ was circulating. Clearly, MTV is planning to bring the show back – which spawned the TV spin-off hits Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2.

We talked exclusively with Mackenzie Mckee, who was on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 3 to get her advice she’d give to the upcoming stars of the new 16 and Pregnant… with some viewers concerned bringing back this show would cause girls to get pregnant on purpose. McKee shared her thoughts:

“The show was created to show viewers the struggle of what it is to become a mother at a YOUNG age, what you miss out on, and sacrifices you must make to raise your child,” McKee shared. “Going from 16, to mommy as soon as you get pregnant is not easy. This show was not designed for girls to purposely get pregnant for a chance of TV fame.”

“The ladies whom are on Teen Mom did not get pregnant for fame,” she continued, “they had no clue at the time how far with tv they would come. But they do boldly shared their stories to show others what a struggle it is.”

“But,” she added, “I do not think MTV should continue to find new teen moms and show the world they are casting so some 16 year old could possibly purposely get pregnant for a shot of fame.”

EXCLUSIVE: Mackenzie McKee Explains Her View Of Briana DeJesus Joining Teen Mom 2

Recently, The Dirty exclusively posted Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans‘s reaction/refusal to give a reaction regarding Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus joining Teen Mom 2 as a full time cast member.

We caught up with DeJesus’s former Teen Mom 3 co-star MacKenzie McKee to get her reaction to DeJesus being on the show and garner her response to rumors we’ve heard circulating that she’s upset with DeJesus being on the show.

“I don’t read articles,” McKee exclusively shared with us. “So my way of finding out was waking up to hundreds of shocked Snapchat followers messaging me about it.”

“It is a bit of a shock looking at the difference in our following,” McKee began with responding about DeJesus getting cast instead of her, “but Bri is my good friend. I love her dearly, and I am nothing more but happy for her. She knows that.”

“MTV put on the show who they thought people would like best or get the show the best ratings,” she continued. “I think this world really needs to learn to be happier for one another.”

EXCLUSIVE: Mackenzie McKee – I Did NOTHING Wrong By Posting A Video Of My Son Holding Our Dead Dog

Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee took to Snapchat last night to post a video of her son holding their dog who had died. Almost immediately, McKee was criticized for the post, with people claiming it was inappropriate, wrong to animals, and more.

McKee exclusively spoke to The Dirty to defend her post.

“Our chihuhahuha had to have a c section,” McKee explained. “They sent us home with both dogs, and one was dying. The vet said to rough it up to try to stimulate his heart, so we did, but he didn’t make it. My son asked if he could hold him and went and prayed over him to heal and pull through. He was obsessed with and attached to this puppy with high hopes. So yes, I let him hold and kiss on him. I in no way think what I did was wrong. I had a dog die when I was a little girl and I remember laying in the grass beside him sobbing and (was) saying goodbye for hours. But I got closure and that’s what I wanted for my son.”

“I remember a time I lost a baby at 14 weeks and delivered and they just came and took the baby,” she further revealed. “It destroyed me and messed me up for a good while and I wish I could have held my baby and said goodbye.”

“What I did was the right thing to do,” McKee added. “After he loved on him we made a doggy box and buried the dog with a funeral and everything. I got to explain to my son that when we die, we go to heaven forever as an angel.”

“Nothing of what I did was wrong,” McKee wrapped with telling us.

I totally get being attached to your dog, as I am completely attached to mine. Perhaps, though, to avoid fans criticizing her, she could have kept this moment private instead of broadcasting it to the world.

EXCLUSIVE: Teen Mom Mackenzie McKee – Quinn Tilley Broke Apart My Marriage

The Dirty exclusively reported that Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee’s ex friend, Quinn Tilley, had claimed that McKee had cheated on her husband. While McKee denied the allegations, Tilley then told us McKee had threatened her over them. Now, McKee has broken her silence with us exclusively.

While she does note Josh McKee and her had problems in the past, she said things had gotten better.

So what about the cheating rumors? McKee gave us her truth:

“An old friend- well, someone I have known- not exactly a friend (I never trusted her) decided to reach out to my husband and tell him the most down right disgusting lies. She broke apart my whole marriage and family. She wouldn’t answer one of my phone calls but was on the phone with him everyday explaining how I had slept with another man in our home with the kids home.”

“He of course left,” McKee continued. “I would have too. Finally my crazy self showed up at this woman’s house, forced her into telling the truth, and forced her to call Josh telling him the truth. He came home that night and I simply couldn’t stop hugging him and letting go.”

“I had Quinn’s Father and sister reach out to me telling me just how many things like this she has done in her life,” McKee added. “She has a mental illness of ruining peoples lives and they are so sorry for what she did. I’ve always known this girl needed help and never has she ever known how to tell the truth, but never did I think she would go so far to try to split up my marriage. It was the worst week of my life. Passing the kids back and fourth and them screaming when daddy left.”

“I hope she gets help and she will never come near my family again,” McKee wrapped with telling us. “Sometimes being the nice guy isn’t your better option.”
