Vicki Gunvalson’s son-in-law Ryan Culberson has had a lot of backlash come his way after his appearance on the season eight finale of Real Housewives of Orange County this week! Ryan was shown cursing at Judy, Lydia McLaughlin’s mother, after she rested her feet on one of Vicki’s couches at her party.
Ryan is now speaking out to Marine Corps Times, saying “There was so much more … that led up to that incident which they fail to include to make me look like the crazy Marine. It definitely was a crazy night and I cannot get over how the producers edited it.”
Producers might edit scenes out of sequence but I doubt they animated Ryan to make him look like he was cursing out a woman and acting like a lunatic! And claiming that it was his house, before correcting himself?
Ryan adds, “I said somethings in the heat of the moment that I wish I hadn’t. But if the true story had of been painted it would be a lot more justified.”
I’m not sure I buy this. Editing can do a lot of things but Ryan still said those things and they were caught on the mic.
“I think you just need to make sure you steer clear of any drama that would make you look bad or bring discredit on the Marine Corps,” Ryan said about appearing on TV. “I think, unless it’s something positive, it’s just not a good idea. Putting anything negative out there is only going to create problems.”
Vicki also spoke to the site, telling them that Ryan told her off-camera that Judy was being very rude and disrespectful during their exchange, leading him up to that level of anger!
Do you think Ryan had a right to speak that way even if something had led up to this that was not shown? Do you believe Ryan that Judy was being rude and disrespectful to him?
UPDATE: It turns out that Ryan has a past with domestic violence! In 2010, his ex-girlfriend Rachel Lawrence had him charged for domestic violence and he was arrested for it. Check out the screen caps from the Orange County Superior Court of California web site:
