Tamra Judge The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Eddie Judge Goes Off on RHOC Fans and Ryan Veith Drama!

So far, Eddie Judge has been able to stay in the OC spotlight with no major story lines (and when you’re a housewives husband – that’s a good thing!) Only recently has Eddie been criticized for his actions which included his comments on step son Ryan Veith and what he revealed in therapy.

Taking to Instagram, Eddie attempted to clear the air by saying:

Time to move on… just because you see it on TV doesn’t mean it’s real! I’m happy most of you understand this and those that do not, you need to learn how it works. Reality TV is not Reality. These shows are designed to get maximum reaction from the viewers.
Has anyone reached out to a villain on a TV show and messaged him/her what a piece of shit he/she is because of what they saw that person do or say to someone else on that show? Oh yeah, no. Because someone wrote that script. Well, someone writes the script on reality TV. Just not exactly the same way a scripted show is produced. I stand behind what I said and never did I say that people with a mental illness need to man up. I understand mental illness. I also understand when someone uses mental illness as an scapegoat. Ryan is not mentally ill and he is not using it as an scapegoat. He is struggling with life. And, you don’t have to be mentally ill to feel depressed. However, the TV show will figure out how to get max reaction by editing a touching moment in such a way to get you to watch for more. If they do not, then we have no show. Get it? The end!

If you missed the show, Eddie comments refer to Ryan Veith opening up to his mom in therapy about feeling worthless and depressed. Ryan claims his issues stem from his unstable childhood. Eddie, in his talking head, said that Ryan needed to man up and that he wasn’t a real man if he was still focusing on daddy issues from his past.

Depression is real and can be very debilitating so I understand why there was so much backlash with Eddie. On the other hand, perhaps Eddie’s comments were taken out of context as in a talking head we don’t know what he was commenting on or what he was asked by the producers to prompt such a response. From what we’ve seen, Eddie seems to be pretty level headed so I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
