The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast trip to Berlin was going pretty well…. and then Erika Jayne confronted Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave over her that “pretend amnesia” comment at a group dinner with the entire cast during the last episode. She could have just discussed it privately with Teddi instead, but in front of the camera crew, of course.
Erika has every right to be upset that Teddi accused of having “pretend amnesia” i.e. being a liar, but she just had such an over-the -top reaction that was way too much for the new Housewife to handle. That theatrical display completely detracted from Erika’s original grievance. Erika made things even worse when she snapped at Teddi during a group dinner for the second time. She has a valid point, but her delivery is just not right.
In her Bravo blog, Teddi wrote, “This trip has been a lot of fun, and I’m glad Erika and I seem to be getting along like a panda with bamboo.” If she is comparing a panda eating bamboo to Erika chewing Teddi up and spitting her out, then yeah, that metaphor can apply to their relationship.
Teddi continued, “But the long and short of it (shoutout to those who love when I use that term!) is that ‘pretend amnesia’ hasn’t been forgotten, and it rears its head while we’re are at dinner.” Well, yeah, Teddi accused Erika of being a liar, so of course Erika was upset. Erika really should have pulled her aside though. Why did she have to do that in front of the other women in the cast? The most loyal Erika Jayne Stans will always have her back, but Erika snapping at Teddi is really damaging her status as a fan favorite.
Teddi wrote, “Erika brings it up with that glare, and I’m as breezy as Monica Geller leaving Richard a voicemail (any Friends fans out there?). But we squash it — until the reunion, of course!” Of course. Nothing is ever “squashed” on a Real Housewives show until the reunion episodes.
TELL US- DOES ERIKA HAVE A RIGHT TO BE MAD ABOUT TEDDI ACCUSING HER OF HAVING “PRETEND AMNESIA”? DO YOU WANT TO TEDDI TO RETURN FOR A SECOND SEASON OF REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS?
