The one time I watched Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season was when the astrologist was on. That was episode six in season ten (thanks Lisa!) and it reminded me so much of the drunk vaping psychic on season one! The astrologist did everyone’s charts and seemed like he loved sowing feuds, which is the whole point of this show. They did it at Erika’s house and my god her husband is OLD! He’s 81, I just checked, and he talked about meeting John Wayne when he was younger. I could not get with a dude that old, but I’m not a gold digger like so many of these women. Anyway the woman who was definitely the blandest was Teddi Mellencamp. Her main plotline was that she was besties with Kyle Richards, which is super boring. They tried to make some kind of “more than friends” story out of it, but that wasn’t flying at all. Plus we know the real hookup was between Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville. We recently heard that Denise is leaving RHOBH, and now there’s news that Teddi probably won’t be coming back either. Outlets are reporting that she’s about to be fired after three years.
Teddi Mellencamp is set to be axed from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” after three seasons on the show, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.
“The network has not been impressed with her performance on the show,” an insider told the outlet. “They considered cutting her last season but gave her one last chance.”
The insider added, “She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members. The issue is, the other cast members don’t particularly like her and beyond Kyle [Richards], no one is friends with her.”
Mellencamp, 39, joined the show in 2017 and struggled to fit in with the women. She found her footing with her close relationship with Richards this past season, but it seems that was not enough to save her diamond…
Mellencamp took to Instagram to defend the program and told Page Six: “We realize that social media is a blessing and a curse, and it can bring out the best in people and the worst. We have so many fabulous friends and fans on social, but there are also detractors, and there will always be people who want to feel better by making other people feel worse. That makes me sad, but it’s the way it is.”
“I decided to start All In when so many of my Instagram followers started reaching out and wanted to achieve the same level of accountability, I had found for myself,” she concluded. “I realized this in fact is my purpose and what I love doing. Helping others feel their best.”
Teddi is younger than the other housewives at 39, she’s sort-of a self-made businesswoman apart from the fact that her dad, John Cougar Mellencamp, is rock royalty, and she’s married to a guy who is only four years older than she is. She’s boring comparatively and she wasn’t good at getting in feuds with the other women either from what I could tell. We just talked about her extremely expensive diet coaching plan, which former clients say boils down to eating 500 to 1,000 calories and exercising for an hour a day. That’s very unhealthy and borderline starvation, but even her response to that was predictable, defensive and not that interesting. Everyone says the same thing about haters trying to bring them down because they’re successful. So she’s getting fired for being boring on the show. The fact that she didn’t turn that PR disaster into some kind of lifestyle content with People or US likely just reminds RHOBH producers that she’s not going to change.
