Teddi Mellencamp Won’t Return to ‘Stuffy’ Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Teddi Mellencamp has no plans to ever return to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She held a diamond on Seasons 8 through 10 but was let go in 2020.

While recording their Two Ts in a Pod podcast on June 17, Teddi told Tamra Judge that she didn’t care if she ever returned to the show. She told the Real Housewives of Orange County regular that the RHOBH cast just didn’t get her quirky humor.

“I don’t think I would ever come back to Beverly Hills,” Teddi said. “There’s no self-deprecation in Beverly Hills, and that’s a huge part of who I am. It’s making fun of myself.”

The BH ladies are too uptight

In addition to their inability to make fun of themselves, Teddi called the Beverly Hills ladies “stuffy.” She recalled that her former castmates warned her about making unflattering comments while they were filming.

If she referred to herself as “a hot mess,” they would say, “’Teddi, don’t say that. They’re going to use that.’ Like, it doesn’t make it fun.”

However, she did tell Tamra that, compared to RHOBH, she enjoyed filming an episode of the upcoming Season 18 of RHOC with her.

“I filmed with Tamra once this season, and I said to her [afterward] … ‘The most fun I had filming [Housewives] was doing that episode of Orange County,’” Teddi confessed.

Teddi is not the only one who’s sworn never to return to RHOBH. Franchise OG Lisa Vanderpump has said multiple times she would never come back to the show.

“It would never happen,” she said. “Not in a million years. I left [RHOBH] with a cloud of dust behind me. Never.”

Neither is the Vanderpump Rules producer interested in reconciling with any of her former castmates unless they offered her a genuine apology.

“I think if there’s a true apology,” the restauranteur said. “[If] actually somebody says, ‘You know what? I really regret it, and I’m really sorry that I said that’ … Then yes. There will always be room. But you’ll never get that from them.”

I don’t think Lisa’s holding her breath, and neither am I.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is now streaming on Peacock.
