It feels like Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is the cast member that we didn’t know we needed on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (minus the constant horse talk for the first few episodes). She doesn’t have a glam squad or brag about her life (unlike some people). She is also not afraid to call out Dorit Kemsley on her bull shit, as we all say when she left Teddi hanging for fifty four minutes after she invited her for drinks.
Teddi may have been “introduced” to the viewers through Dorit – who she met on camera – but there are other cast members Teddi became close with during her rookie season.
In an interview for the Reality Life With Kate Casey podcast, Teddi admitted, “I had never seen the show prior, but I probably should have.” That is something a lot of Real Housewives say and I very rarely believe them, but I actually do buy what Teddi is selling here.
Speaking of honesty, Teddi opened up about the dinner Dorit
supposedly cooked during their double date. She admitted, “I have to be honest. That dinner was delicious. I have absolutely no idea what it was.” Dorit probably didn’t know either.
Teddi confessed, “I can say throughout that Lisa Vanderpump was constantly very kind to me and checking in to make sure that I was OK.” Teddi also said, “She could tell when I was having a little bit of a hard time.” Aside from discussing the social aspects of their friendship, Teddi also shared, “I also think she’s a great businesswoman and I learned a lot from her.”
Who else did Teddi get along with? She shared, “I had a lot of fun with Kyle Richards. It feels very natural with her. It’s effortless and that’s how I love my friendships to be.”
Teddi did not actually throw any shade in that interview, but it is possible that she had issues with the cast members she didn’t mention in her 2-person list of close friends. Or at least I hope so. I want to see her put some of these women (cough cough Dorit) in their place.
