On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, newcomer Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave tried to get her co-stars to relax and let their guards down a bit by having a low-key get together at her beach house. She says the ladies were to bring a dish to pass, but instead of food, they brought plates piled with drama.
Teddi shared in her newest blog, “I love that Dorit and I could joke about being late and stemless glasses. But soon, we were in a situation with Kyle, Dorit, and Lisa Vanderpump, which I found out had to do with Kyle “defending” me. I was so wrapped up in unpacking groceries and saving those brown Whole Foods bags (those bitches cost me ten cents!) that I missed a lot of the conversation. I really appreciated Kyle trying to help me out on the boat, so I was baffled at why Dorit was so upset that Kyle “butted in” on our conversation when Lisa Vanderpump did the same thing first.”
She continued, “I knew I’d get mocked for the idea of a potluck (everybody knows the jello with the pretzels on the bottom is the way to go, Erika), but I wanted to keep it real and see if any of these women would partake and just be easygoing about it. Little did I know that their idea of a potluck was for each to bring a plate of drama.”
Teddi isn’t pretending that she’s poor, but she wants us to see the REAL her. She shares in her blog, “I know what you’re thinking: ‘I didn’t realize Teddi was so down-to-earth. Man, if only she would have told us in previous episodes how laid back she is.’ I just want to be clear: I’m not saying I don’t have money—I’m just saying I’m frugal. And I don’t flaunt things because I don’t care. This is The REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills, so I’m just being me. Five bedroom beach house/cottage/whatever and all.”
Tonight is an all new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Teddi’s beach house weekend ends abruptly—and disastrously—when Dorit reveals to Erika what was said about her after her unexpected departure. The ladies descend upon New York for Fashion Week. Lisa Rinna helps her daughter, Delilah, get settled in New York City. Private information about Lisa Vanderpump is revealed publicly—and some of the ladies worry how she’ll react once she finds out.”
