Mackenzie has been trying to set up a private meeting with Maci for weeks and producers are keen to film the exchange, according to The Ashley's Reality Roundup.

However, Maci, 29, is reportedly "refusing" to see Mackenzie, 26, and has been "ignoring" the MTV star's requests.

“Mackenzie reached out to [production] a few weeks ago, letting them know that she wanted to sit down with Maci privately and see if they could resolve some of their issues,” a source told the outlet.

“Maci refused to give the producers an answer on whether or not she was willing."

The insider added: “Mackenzie also reached out to Maci privately via text to see if they could clear the air and Maci didn’t respond.

“In fact, that was filmed for next season- Mackenzie texting Maci, and talking about how she just wants things to not be so tense between the families. She thought a sit-down lunch or something might be a good thing to help them talk out their issues.”

Maci has previously called out Mackenzie for not saying things to her face.

Last month, she slammed the reality star for confronting her onstage at the Teen Mom OG season nine reunion.

“Mackenzie is brave sitting on a couch responding to strangers on social media about my son, but still not brave enough to sit on a couch and talk to me at the reunion,” she wrote.

Maci called out her ex-fiancee Ryan and Mackenzie for claiming in Tuesday's episode of Teen Mom that they don't see Bentley as "often as they used to".

She called the couple "stupid b****es" and "pigs" in a furious rant on Twitter.

The mother-of-three raged: "'Not as often as you used to'… He failed to mention it's because Bentley is in school during the week and out of town for sports two weekends a month."

She added: "The weekends he wanted to and was free to go over there… he was there? I'm confused.

"When that girl says 'if it has any effect on you seeing B' & then he says 'she does that all the time' I’m like hold the damn phone.

"Do I have control over his bio dad showing up to 5 out of the 100 school/sport events Benny has? & why does he never call/text B?"

Fellow Teen Mom star Mackenzie McKee shared her support for Maci after the episode, tweeting: "Honestly though. I couldn’t be as nice as Maci is if I was in her situation."

Maci replied: "The fuse is coming to it’s end.

"I’ll never wrestle with pigs, you both get dirty… but the pig likes it! Truth hurts."

The mother-of-three also referred to the time Ryan and Mackenzie called her "petty", posting: "I’d rather be a petty b***h than a stupid one. #allday."

During the latest episode, Maci also took aim at Ryan's "delusional" parents Jen and Larry for previously claiming they're "not allowed" to see Bentley.

Back in October, Larry exclusively spoke to The Sun about their family's relationship with their eldest grandson.

Larry claimed that Ryan, 33, can't see his son and that his relationship with the Teen Mom star "hasn't been going well."

Ryan has been battling drug addiction for years and recently sparked rumors that he had relapsed.

The reality star's dad also said that he and wife Jen do not see Bentley as often as they used to.

After reading the article, Maci told a friend: "They've been allowed to see him the whole time. They just saw him at Jagger's birthday."
