Maci and Taylor met up with Jen and Larry while filming the season nine reunion show this week, according to The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
Producers reportedly tried to get the couple to face off with Ryan and his wife Mackenzie at first but they refused.
“You could cut the tension with a knife when they were all sitting out there,” an insider told the outlet.
“But everything was OK until the very end of the segment.”
Jen was reportedly concerned that Maci was acting angry and distant and kept asking her what was wrong.
“Maci kept giving vague answers and was making it clear she was upset but would not say why,” the source said.
Taylor finally "exploded on" Jen and Larry, the source said, and slammed Ryan's parenting of his 12-year-old son, Bentley.
“He told them Ryan is a ‘piece of s**t’ and that he, unlike Ryan, has been there for Bentley for a long time,” the source said.
“He told Larry and Jen that Ryan should be more like he is.”
“[Taylor] kind of got up and eventually asked Larry if he wanted to take things outside. It didn’t get that far, though. Nothing got physical.”
Maci then allegedly came to blows with the Edwards, calling Jen a "manipulative b***h" before they stormed off the stage.
It is not known if they later returned to resume filming of the Teen Mom OG reunion.
Earlier this week, Maci clapped back at Ryan for calling her a "spiteful b***h".
"I really wanted to post some 'petty b***h' (and hilarious) comments, but I'll wait until they can tell me the definition of 'petty' without googling it and reading it aloud," she tweeted.
In the latest episode of Teen Mom, Ryan accused Maci of holding their son Bentley hostage from his family.
Mackenzie told Ryan: "I am responsible for these kids' emotions and feelings and they don't deserve that. It's one thing to be a petty b**ch, fine, but when you're including my kids, that's not okay with me."
"She's just a spiteful evil b**ch," concluded Ryan.
Ryan's hurtful comments were made as he relayed to Mackenzie that Bentley would not be attending his half-brother Jagger's birthday at their house and would be going to his grandparents' house instead.
He shares Jagger, two, and daughter Stella, one, with Mackenzie.
Bentley had been setting boundaries with his father, including choosing to not visit the house and asking his father to attend therapy sessions with him.
