Eddie Judge Says Reality Shows Are Designed To Get Maximum Reaction
Eddie Judge said to fans, “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.”

The RHOC Star Clarified His View On Mental Illness
Eddie clarified his outlook and his views in a statement on Instagram. He said he stood behind what he said and that he never said people with mental illness need to man up. He said he understands mental illness, but “he also understands when someone uses mental as a scapegoat.”
Eddie said Ryan is neither of these things, he’s just struggling with life. At the end of his post, Eddie said production will edit different scenes to get the best reaction from the audience.
Tamra also spoke out about what Eddie said when it came to her son. She said his comment got taken out of context. She stood by her husband when fans came after him as well. Eddie said, “the TV show will figure out how to get max reaction. They’ll edit a touching moment to get you to watch for more. If they do not, then we have no show. Get it? The end!“ The episode was emotional, however, Ryan is doing well now having recently taken to Instagram to thank those fans that reached out to him. He’s in a good place.
