Lisa Rinna Declares Teddi Mellencamp ‘One of the Greatest Housewives of All Time’

Um … Lisa Rinna has been keeping busy since departing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to Rinna, she’s beyond happy without being burdened by the anchor of a Bravo paycheck. And we’re happy she’s happy.

Rinna has been traveling the world going to avant-garde fashion shows and serving unusual looks. She’s also still flexing those thespian chops in Season 3 of American Horror Story. In what might be Lisa’s greatest acting role yet, she’s declaring Teddi Mellencamp one of the GOATs of Real Housewives.

Do we need someone to do a wellness check? While Rinna was on Amazon Live, she answered some fan questions. After working with Teddi for two seasons on RHOBH, the fans pretty much wished Teddi to the cornfield in 2020.

When a viewer wondered why everyone sees Teddi in a negative light, Rinna backed up her fellow Fox Force Five member. “I don’t understand that because I think Teddi was one of the greatest housewives of all time.” To my knowledge, Lisa’s nose did not grow several inches in the moment. But I’ll have what she’s having because that’s some strong stuff.

She added, “Nobody can ferret out the truth like Teddi Mellencamp. Any time we forget something, or someone has called us out on something, you call Teddi and ask ‘what happened here?’ and she knows everything.” That’s because Teddi doesn’t have a job filming and has tons of available time to Google.

“I love Teddi Mellencamp – you guys don’t understand, I don’t think. Everyone has their own opinion,” she said. Is … is Teddi in the room with a menacing look on her face?

“I think to each his own. I will stand by saying I think Teddi is one of the best Housewives we’ve ever had – totally misunderstood, I think… She knows how to stir it – you need people who are not afraid to stir it… I’m not sure anyone’s over there stirring it right now. Otherwise, it’s boring,” Rinna continued. Really Lisa? No one is “over there stirring it right now?” Name ’em. Name ’em.

This makes little sense because much of the audience complained that Teddi was boring. No offense to current Teddi, but she gave nothing to the show other than support of Kyle Richards’ ego. Maybe Rinna was watching a different timeline featuring Teddi than we were, but like she said, “to each his own.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
