Tamra Judge’s Husband Eddie Judge Responds To Social Media Backlash Over Comments He Made About Ryan Vieth On RHOC, Tamra Weighs In And Defends Eddie!

Eddie Judge, the husband of  Tamra Judge is facing backlash on social media after she made some comments about his wife's eldest son, Ryan Vieth during last week's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Eddie posted a lengthy statement to Instagram on Monday, trying to set the record straight on the topic. “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,” Eddie wrote.

“Has anyone reached out to a villain on a TV show and messaged him/her what a piece of s— 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,” he continued. “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,” Eddie continued the post. “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,” he said.

Concluding the post, Eddie said that production will edit “a touching moment” as a way to get a “max reaction” from audiences.

“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,” he added. “If they do not, then we have no show. Get it? The end!”

On her BravoCon panel on Sunday, Tamra addressed Eddie’s frustrations, explaining that his comment was taken out of context, according to PEOPLE.

If you recall, during the Nov. 13 episode of RHOC, Tamra broke down while attending a group therapy session with her son Ryan, who is battling depression, and his therapist, Dr. Mcayla Sarno.

While processing with Vieth and the therapist, Tamra admitted her worry “that one day Ryan might commit suicide. That’s my biggest fear.”

Tamra reflected on the therapy session during a conversation with Eddie. “When you’re struggling with childhood issues as a man, you’re not a man,” Eddie reportedly said in a confessional in reference to Vieth.
