Teddi Mellencamp Declares That She Isn’t Kyle Richards’ ‘Henchwoman’

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has been busy this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She helped propagate the dumbest storyline puppygate and told off a vulnerable Lisa Vanderpump. Teddi wore out her fingers out texting John Sessa Blizzard (I still don’t care). She also decided to pay a stylist who obviously hates her to try to level up with the other women. Oh, and did I mention she’s busy now Kyle Richards’ mouthpiece?

Remember earlier this season when she was complaining about doing LVP’s dirty work? Now she’s happily doing Kyle’s! For their first night out in Provence, the ladies went all out by wearing black. (I’m still not over the memory of Dorit Kemsely’s feather leather jacket). The women also tried something new by attempting to deliver in a scene. With Kyle at the helm now, she and Teddi tried to start some drama by calling out Lisa Rinna’s behavior at Farrah-ween. Honestly, I think the only person truly offended by Rinna’s awful Erika Jayne impersonation was Kyle. Yes, everyone was cringing. But Kim Richards even forgave Rinna! So, Kyle we get it. You need to harp on this because LVP has left the building you were personally traumatized. The only person on Kyle’s side here was Teddi.

Southern Charm Cameran Eubanks

Cameran Eubanks might be the most even-keeled person on reality TV. She rarely causes any drama and she gets to sit back and narrate Southern Charm. She’s basically been the voice of reason since Season 1 in a cast that is made up of wildly unpredictable people (ahem Thomas Ravenel, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis). For someone who has worked in the reality TV world since she was nineteen, I’d say this is a feat!

I’ve always wondered if Cameran is truly a gem or a producer’s pet (probably both). She doesn’t have to bleed for her spot on Southern Charm the way other cast members do. I’m looking at you Kathryn and Craig Conover. Everyone on the show is so open about the messy parts of their lives, (i.e., business failures, relation-Shep failures, and their overall reality). Meanwhile, Cameran talks about “finding balance” and gets to keep a major of her life private – on a very public reality show. We know she has an adorable baby, Palmer, because we always get to see her, but haven’t you wondered what her husband looks like? Cameran got married in between Season 1 and Season Two. However, we’ve only ever heard her husband on speaker phone! Mmmm Hmmm.
