REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp found out she was fired from the show online but admits “the writing was on the wall.”
It was actually the Daily Mail that broke the news of Teddi being fired from the show.
Teddi, 39, revealed that Bravo producers didn’t tell her about being from RHOBH, but that her non-televisions friends told her when they read it off the news.
The fired star said on Thursday in her podcast Teddi Tea Podcast: “The craziest part about it was, I think it was last Monday, I woke up, I was on the Peloton, and my non-television show girlfriends started texting me … it’s all over the Daily Mail that you’re no longer a Housewife.
“I think for the last couple of months, I was preparing myself. I filmed so many amazing things that were never shown on the show…it should have been the writing on the wall.
“All the things that make me a likable, redeeming human being were not shown on the season. So if you only see a certain part of somebody, it’s really hard to connect with them.”
Despite the fact that she wasn’t shocked, she did admit that she still gets sad.
She said: “I’m still on a group text with Erika Jayne, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna, and there are days when I’m like ‘why do I feel sad today.’
“It really does feel like a breakup. I reached out to Dorit Kemsley.
“We’ve had extreme highs and lows on the show, but I told her I wanted to let you know that I just want to wish you the best. Dorit has a good heart.”
The former housewife also slammed former costar Camille Grammer as someone who tries to stay relevant in the RHOBH despite not being part of the show.
She said: “I don’t want to be the ex-Housewife that is tweeting on the show years after I have been on the show about other people’s problems.
“I never want to be that person. I never want to be the person shading somebody years after … Camille Grammer makes it her sole mission in life to try and put me down on Twitter.”
Camille had actually attacked Teddi on social media after people who had tried Teddi’s weight loss program claimed they suffered terrible side effects.
Just a few weeks ago, news broke that Teddi was not going to be returning for the next season of RHOBH after her contract wasn’t renewed.
A source close to Bravo’s production team revealed to the Daily Mail that Teddi might be getting axed in the next couple of weeks.
The source told the outlet: “The network has not been impressed with her performance on the show.
“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.”
In fact, this is not the first time that the mother of three has been called boring.
This season, RHOBH friend Sutton Stracke called her “a little bit boring,” which made the pregnant star burst in tears.
And at another point, Brandi Glanville alleged that Denise Richards had said Teddi was living in her father John Mellencamp’s shadow.
Teddi has also had to deal with the demise of her weight loss program, All In, as people who took part of the program claim they suffered “dizziness, diarrhea, and weakness.”
According to their website, All In strives to “provide our clients a pathway to self-accountability through personal one-on-one support, guidance and tools that inspire a complete – and lasting – lifestyle shift toward health, fitness and achieving one’s best self.”
The program is available at various-priced tiers – with the most expensive “Jumpstart” option being $599 for two weeks of “detoxifying” and “resetting” the body.
Other options include a monthly program for $399 every 30 days or the Weight and Workout package for $165 a month – which requires proof of the scale number and finished cardio regimes.
People who took part in the program have since criticized it for it’s alleged promotion of minimal food consumption and harmful messaging.
One woman who signed up in 2019 but quit during the first two weeks told Daily Beast: “They don’t let you know the menu before you start.”
“I was really surprised at how little I was allowed to eat,” she added.

The same woman also told the outlet that she was on an “approximately 500 calories a day” diet while also “burning 500-600 calories a day through cardio.”
In just 11 days, the client – who wished to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation – claimed she lost 11 pounds.
The reality star joined the Bravo show in its eighth season.
She married Edwin Arroyave in 2011 and the couple shares three children: Slate, seven, Cruz, five, and Dove.
