Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge Praise RHODubai’s Taleen Marie

Real Housewives of Dubai star Taleen Marie is getting noticed in a good way. The newbie housewife caught the attention of Two T’s in a Pod hosts, Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum had some high praise for the actions Taleen took when speaking with Caroline Stanbury. Take note OGs and Housewives-to-be, this is how you handle a sensitive topic.

Tamra and Teddi think Taleen is “authentic” and a “great housewife”

One of the top complaints from Real Housewives is getting blindsided. This usually happens when someone airs another person’s dirty laundry to the entire group. Eventually the two will make up, but with a disclaimer to tell them privately next time. And that was just what Taleen did, however she got it right her first go around.

While everyone was complimenting one another at Chanel Ayan’s queens dinner, Taleen pulled Caroline to the side to discuss her husband Sergio Carrallo. Taleen informed Caroline that Sergio had expressed concern how Caroline’s children speak to him. Caroline was taken aback, but admitted she appreciated how Taleen had spoken with her privately.

Tamra and Teddi also agreed that was the way to handle that conversation. On their podcast, they discussed how Taleen brought up the information to Caroline, and how that made her a top tier housewife. High praise indeed!

Teddi asked Tamra, “How did you feel about this? Taleen pulling Stanbury away from the dinner to have a conversation privately about Sergio and her husband’s conversation?” Tamra replied, “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.” Teddi concurred there’s nothing wrong with having a private conversation.

Tamra added, “But it just shows what a great housewife Taleen is to think to even do that, most people wouldn’t even touched it.” Perhaps, or more likely they would have outed Sergio’s comments to the group at large. Not very classy, but entertaining none the less. 

Teddi said, “Those are questions you actually, not on a television show, you probably would ask somebody if these things were happening. So I appreciated the authenticity of this conversation, and I also appreciated how Stanbury handled it.”

It’s not every day you get compliments from an OG housewife like Tamra. Taleen is well on her way to being a successful housewife and RHODubai star!

Real Housewives of Dubai airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
