When Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave first joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there was one question on everyone’s minds: What is an accountability coach? She has explained it several times over with countless self-promotion tactics, but it’s still perplexing to some people.
One of those people is Below Deck star Kate Chastain. Not only is she a Bravolebrity, but she’s also a Bravo fan herself. She has been keeping up with Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and she has a lot of opinions, as per usual.
During the last episode of RHOBH, Teddi discussed her struggle to achieve work/life balance in a conversation with her husband Edwin Arroyave. Her business is growing
thanks to the show and she’s not spending as much time with her kids as she would like.
That’s where Kate comes in. She reacted to that scene with this tweet: “Im still not really sure what exactly an “accountability coach” does, but I’m pretty certain it doesn’t require more time away one’s children than any other job the millions of working mothers have.
Teddi loves responding to shade on Twitter, especially when she can defend herself. She is an accountability coach, after all. She replied, “And I’m sure the millions of working moms struggle with mom guilt at some point. Never said my job and time was any more important or different. But if judging my feelings as a mother makes you happy go off I guess.”

The exchange continued with Kate’s rebuttal. She tweeted, “I accept accountability for all of my
#RHOBH tweets- past, present and future. Also I’m about to eat a pint of pistachio gelato.”
Teddi just has to have the last word, doesn’t she. She came through with a clapback about Kate’s job as the First Stew on Below Deck. Teddi responded, “Great, and I’m gonna go fold some towels. Have a nice evening.”
At some point, a Bravo viewer called Kate out for “mom shaming.” Kate responded to that with even more shade aimed at Teddi. She tweeted, “What about ‘desperate for screen time shaming’…is that okay? Asking for a friend.”
Kyle Richards swooped in to defend her girl Teddi. She tweeted at Kate, “Not sure if you’re a Mom or not but we all deal with Mom guilt at times when working. Not only does Teddi work her ass off helping people and building her business but also being away from the kids when filming is hard sometimes. There are multiple jobs here.”
Kate also made fun of Teddi’s criticism of lie detector tests. She tweeted, “Omg so basically now even lie detector tests need accountability training
I love some fun shade. The only thing that would have made this exchange more entertaining would be some video footage of Teddi reacting to Kate’s tweets. Especially since she wasn’t even tagged in any of them.
