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.

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. 

Lala Kent & Billie Lee

So much happened on last night’s Vanderpump Rules but the only things we really need to talk about are Brittany Cartwright being told by her doctor that she can’t drink on the cast trip to Mexico(!) and Lala Kent turning into James Kennedy by unleashing an unholy fury of meanness on James and Raquel Leviss (again), which finally had James seeing the light about the changes he needs to make in his own life.

I personally think all Brittany’s sudden health problems are a psychosomatic response to realizing she’s engaged to Jax Taylor!

Other things happened, though. Like I cannot look at Beau Clark without seeing a grubby, truck stop dirtbag. His pasty, grimy pits and flabby arms hanging out of that dirty tank top as he swung around a handle of tequila Stassi Schroeder was bedazzling for Scheana Marie as a peace offering was… well all the karma Stassi has ever deserved. Beau seems sweet and very nice, but he joins the unhygienic mass of menfolk on this show who look like walking staph infections and probably need their own file at the CDC.

Lala Kent - Vanderpump Rules

On tonight’s Vanderpump Rules things get super wild at SUR when Lala Kent takes out her grief and aggression on Raquel Leviss after Lala accuses Raquel of talking about her deceased father.

This comes after James Kennedy was cruelly uninvited from the cast trip to Mexico, which was supposed to be about Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz celebrating the opening of TomTom. Then while James is at SUR DJing Billie Lee‘s boozy brunch, he and Raquel have a run-in with Lala that goes all kinds of wrong. This has Tom 1 questioning why Lisa Vanderpump isn’t pulling out her pink slips to fire the future Mrs. Randall Emmett. 

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.
