Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Says Lisa Vanderpump & Dorit Kemsley Drama Is “About Making Your Friends Look Bad” NOT About The Failed Dog Adoption

Last season, Lisa Vanderpump referred to Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave as her “little Teddi bear.” After this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season, LVP will never say that again. Teddi (and allegedly Lisa) was in on a scheme to expose Dorit Kemsley for a failed dog adoption.

Now, Teddi is coming out guns blazing against the RHOBH OG. Is Teddi going to make it out alive? LVP is playing chess while these other Housewives play checkers. Plus, she has a very avid fanbase. This is going to be a major uphill battle.

Kyle Richards

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards keeps insisting that she doesn’t want to take sides between Lisa Vanderpump and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. She must have forgotten that actions speak louder than words. 

Kyle repeatedly tried to get Lisa to talk about puppygate even when she didn’t want to. She also manipulated advised Teddi to think of what Lisa’s next move would be. It’s pretty clear that Kyle has picked a side and it’s not her best friend Lisa’s. And if Lisa won’t talk about puppygate, Kyle will.

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave - Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave may be on her second season as a Housewife, but she’s making some rookie mistakes. Going up against Lisa Vanderpump is a daunting task. No matter how manipulative LVP may be, that’s not enough to turn the majority against her. No one can take down Lisa. No matter how many people have tried. Have any of them actually succeeded? Nope.

She arguably has the most loyal fans out of all the Real Housewives. She also has some very loyal employees. Between the LVP loyalists and John Blizzard, Teddi is up against a lot. Or at least that’s the case on social media. Get ready for more “textesses,” as so many Bravolebrities like to say. Why can’t anyone on this network correctly pronounce the word “texts”? Anyway, I’ve digressed. Let’s get to the latest piece of evidence in the never-ending dog drama.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills - Teddi & Dorit

I started this season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills planning to keep an open mind, but the plotting is just so sloppy and transparent. And not the plotting Lisa Vanderpump is doing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has, by now, told about 15 renditions of her involvement/non-involvement in DogGate. In each version, she becomes increasingly naive and played for a fool. Also each time one of her versions doesn’t coincide with the revision, the other women conveniently brush it aside and double-down on the narrative that Teddi is the victim. Or Dorit Kemsley is. Really?

For instance tonight Teddi told her therapist she never spoke directly to Lisa about Doggate (Why are we still talking about this?!), then told Dorit and the other women that she was on a three-way call with Lisa and John Sessa which proves LVP is directly involved. Isn’t the  whole point of Teddi’s argument that LVP isn’t owning her part and wants to frame Teddi? Well, it sounds like Teddi is doing the same exact thing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Tonight the axis of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills officially shifts when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, a turtle of accountability, cements her very misplaced alliance with the rest of the cast against Lisa Vanderpump. All this over Dorit Kemsley (who has a deflated bank account to go with her droopy ethics and very drooping bikini tops) mistreating a dog and a friend.

I mean, when you (Teddi) are basing your rejection of a friendship based on said friend’s (LVP) possible collaboration in exposing a really shitty, contract violating, grifting, lying animal mistreating, a-hole, you probably need to reexamine your priorities in life and your version of morality. Just my opinion! But there goes Teddi throwing accountability to the wolves of Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit. Girl… have fun with that til they turn back on you. 

Taylor Armstrong Says Daughter Kennedy Doesn’t Miss Her Late Dad Russell

Taylor Armstrong was one of the original Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Taylor instantly made a splash thanks to her oversized pout and over-the-top birthday parties for her daughter Kennedy Armstrong. Additionally, she was known for a dark storyline that involved a toxic marriage to Russell Armstrong that ended in his suicide and her own very public nervous breakdown.
One month before Russell killed himself in August 2011, Taylor filed for divorce, citing physical and verbal abuse. After Russell’s death, Taylor remarried John Bluher and started a new life in Colorado. She and John appeared on the show Couples Therapy together. Taylor has also appeared on RHOBH since her departure after season 3, and rumors swirl periodically that she will return as a full-time Housewife.  Recently Taylor has opened up about how Kennedy, now 12-years-old, is doing years later after the loss of her father.

Dorit Kemsley Lisa Vanderpump RHOBH Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion

Last season the cracks started to form in Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship. However, this season it looks as if they’ve reached a point of no return. So far nobody knows exactly what happened with Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. Nobody wants to accept accountability for this mess. Did Dorit really let Lisa know that she was giving the dog to another home? Is LVP “hell-bent” on getting this Dorit story out there?

We saw Lisa try to punish Dorit last season, so it’s not too far fetched to think she’s doing it again. That being said, there doesn’t seem to be any concrete proof against LVP. Hopefully, we get clarity on the situation at some point throughout the season. Things are looking rocky for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars right now, but maybe they can repair their friendship. Thankfully, Dorit is giving us her stance on the future of her friendship with Lisa. 

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

I feel like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was told to take it up a notch this season. Last year, she was super chill. Her main conflicts were upsetting Dorit Kemsley for using the wrong stemware, and upsetting Erika Girardi because she has a famous dad. Also knowing nothing about fashion. 

This season, Teddi 2.0 showed up. And she came in hot! All glammed up and gunning for her former friend, Lisa Vanderpump. After all, a storyline against Lisa equals more camera time. Hence #puppygate was born. And like a dog with a bone (sorry, I had to), Teddi is not letting go anytime soon.
