90 Day Fiance: Cortney Spills on Network Editing
Network frauding is a common topic of discussion every season among 90 Day Fiance viewers. How production edits scenes to push a certain narrative comes up regularly among cast members, too. And, Cortney Reardanz talked about tactics producers use to get the scenes they want in an interview with Domenick Nati.
Cortney said “editing can create a whole storyline”. And, that the 90 Day Fiance audience doesn’t see the “entire picture”. In addition, she talked about the long days in front of TLC cameras – with some days lasting up to 13 hours.
90 Day Fiance stars certainly have no control over their edit. And, it’s common for the network to splice scenes together to maximize drama. But, along with creative editing, Cortney Reardanz also dished on clever tactics TLC uses to get even more of what they want during scenes.
TLC Manipulating Stars?
90 Day Fiance celebs like Steven Frend said in the past that production made him repeat certain lines over and over again. TLC made him look like the bad guy on his season with Olga Koshimbetova. And, he got a bad rap among viewers because of it.
Meanwhile, Cortney Reardanz said something similar. She said production makes 90 Day Fiance cast do “repetitive things” like have the same argument several times over the course of filming. Cortney said this is “brainwashing” by producers in order to get what they want.
Along with getting the scenes they want, the repetition agitates stars. And, along with the grueling film schedule, that often puts stars on-edge. Moreover, this in turn creates more drama for the cameras.
On top of that, Cortney Reardanz said producers play on emotions to get the scenes they want. So, it’s clear there’s definitely an element of manipulation at work to maximize the drama. And, that combined with misleading storylines and editing certainly makes for tense scenes in the final product.
