Tamra Judge‘s husband, Eddie, is catching heat after he appeared to not support her struggling son after he poured his heart out in therapy. “Real Housewives of Orange County” fans watched in disgust as Eddie said some pretty harsh words about Ryan Vieth after Tamra revealed she went to therapy with him and stated she was worried he’d commit suicide. Bravo watchers are used to bashing Ryan for his strong political views and often outspoken beliefs, but this time they targeted his stepdad for not being supportive during this difficult time.
During Tuesday’s “RHOC” episode, Tamra discussed her emotional joint therapy session with her 33-year-old son. Telling her husband how hard it was to hear the negative outlook he has on himself, the 52-year-old star revealed it’s hard for her to share because she feels like she failed him. Tamra is so worried about Ryan’s state of mind that she revealed she’s scared he may commit suicide. “It just makes me want to die,” Tamra stated on camera. “I struggled with depression, I was sad, I had no self-worth. To hear Ryan say that, it scares me. I worry that one day Ryan might commit suicide. That’s my biggest fear.”
Dayum @TamraBarney, Eddie speaking on your son like that…. grown or not me as his mother, would have had a problem, with Eddie and his 2 cents that nobody asked for 🥊

After she filled Eddie Judge in on the therapy session, he appeared in the confessional and seemed less than impressed with Ryan and their breakthrough. “When you’re struggling with childhood issues as a man, you’re not a man,” he stated about his stepson. Fans are up in arms over the insensitive comment and are taking to social media to bash the “RHOC” star’s husband.
“Eddie saying your son isn’t a “Man” because he is struggling with childhood issues and needs to get over it???? What a cruel, careless, A$$!!! I’m disgusted by his lack of empathy,” one angry fan wrote on Twitter. “@TamraBarney your son is stunted because you’re stunted. And Eddie – you’re a douche. Not everyone has the same experience and processes it the same way. F—ING DOUCHE. I CANT,” tweeted another.
Others are questioning how Tamra feels about her husband’s lack of sympathy and support. “Dayum @TamraBarney, Eddie speaking on your son like that…. grown or not me as his mother, would have had a problem, with Eddie and his 2 cents that nobody asked for,” stated a fan. “@TamraBarney so what do you think of @eddiejudge not supporting Ryan? I get your son can’t use his childhood as a crutch but Eddie was downright wrong with his words and delivery. Are you going to have your kids back or husbands?” another wrote.
As The Blast reported, Tamra was the focus of Tuesday’s “RHOC” episode. Bravo cameras rolled as she and Ryan sat down for a therapy session together. They talked about the negative feelings he harbors towards his mother for giving his siblings a better childhood than she gave him. Tamra talked about the struggles of raising Ryan after she gave birth at just 17 years old.
Tamra Judge’s emotional struggle with her son wasn’t the only confrontation she faced during tonight’s episode. She also came face-to-face with Shannon Beador and denied all rumors that she was talking smack about Shannon behind her back. Things between the two got heated after Kelly Dodd found out Tamra was the first person to mention the “train” rumor on camera and spilled the tea telling Shannon all the horrible things Tamra has said about her behind her back. The two, who are best friends, talked it out during a coffee session but later both didn’t seem like they believed the other in their separate confessionals. “RHOC” is on Bravo every Tuesday at 9PM PT.
