Edwards causes his fiancée to question his sobriety on the way to their elopement
As Edwards was behind the wheel, Standifer looked visibly worried and tight-lipped. Keeping on eye on him, she had to tap him several times to get him to focus on the road; his eyes visibly looked dazed and slightly shut. At one point, she took the wheel in her hand from the passenger seat to straighten their car on the road.
Turning toward the cameras placed inside the vehicle, she began to shut them off. Although the cameras were turned off, the audio continued to roll and caught what she asked her soon-to-be husband.
“Did you take Xanax again?” she was heard asking.
“Um, I don’t … I don’t have any,” he responded with a mumble.
“You did,” she stated.
“I put that on my kid’s life,” he answered, denying he took any form of drugs or medication.

After Monday’s episode was taped, Edwards decided to enter rehab.
“A little over 30 days ago, I made the decision to check myself into a rehabilitation facility. I am back home now doing well, and life could not be better,” he said in a statement. “Without the support of my wife and parents I would not have been able to do this. Thank you all for your well wishes.”
Edwards and Standifer were married in Monday’s episode in front of their respective parents. Edwards’ son Bentley, 8, was not present at the ceremony.
