I’m sure everyone will join me in once again thanking Kyle Richards for bringing Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave back to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Though Teddi is only visiting, her return was anxiously anticipated by literally no one other than Erika Jayne, who is now approving all requests for desperate friendships.
Ahead of being the newest member of the esteemed Fox Force Five, Teddi caught up with an old friend for an interview. She joined Jeff Lewis to bring everyone up to speed on what we’ve missed in her absence. After the crickets chirped, Teddi spoke on what she could have done differently in the Denise Richards drama and how she might have accidentally provided Bravo with her replacement.
Teddi is taking a break from a heavy lunch of looking at photos of hamburgers and choking down a hearty lettuce leaf to briefly return to a show about Beverly Hills where no one actually lives in Beverly Hills. She recently hooked up with former Flipping Out star Jeff on his Radio Andy talk show. Reality Blurb shared the details. Tedster said she felt pressure to perform during her last season on RHOBH. The performance must not have been up to par because Teddi got wished to the cornfield by the big guys. But Teddi’s loss was Crystal Minkoff’s gain and Teddi basically gift-wrapped Crystal in a beautiful bow and presented her to Bravo.
She told Jeff, “Crystal was my friend that I referred to be on the show. They hired her and fired me!” This was probably the best thing Teddi ever did for the program. Teddi has known Crystal for about eight years and they still keep in touch despite Crystal snagging her diamond. Teddi also shared she obviously still
stalks speaks to Kyle every five minutes and she’s close with Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, and EJ. No word on whether or not Erika is currently suffering from pretend amnesia and unable to recall why she didn’t like Teddi in the first place.

Teddi went on to include she doesn’t have much use for Sutton Stracke and Denise won’t have anything to do with her. “I’m blocked on all social media [by Denise]. She’s done with me.” I mean, maybe not. Viewers thought they were done with Teddi too, but here we are! After the fallout from Teddi’s involvement in the scandal with Denise and Brandi Glanville, Denise left the show voluntarily and Teddi did not. Though Teddi does say she gave Denise a break, “I could have blindsided her [Denise] and just talked about her behind her back in confessionals and let her be shocked when she saw it.” How… gracious.
Teddi’s rise from the ashes will probably have to be documented in fan fiction, because it doesn’t seem likely she’ll get her fulltime gig back. Not as long as Crystal has a pulse. As Teddi compliments herself for not talking behind Denise’s back during a sensitive scandal, perhaps her investigative nature will lend itself to pointing out some hard facts to Erika. After all, it worked out so well for her the first time.
