Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

The New Girl Speaks Out! Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave On Her Famous Dad & Being a Housewife!

I know we all have our favorites and I’m not shy to say my favorite housewives city is Beverly Hills. With that being said I’m always a little skeptical of a new girl coming in; however from what we know, Teddi seems like a natural fit.

Speaking out with People magazine, Teddi describes herself as “straightforward and I tell it like it is.” Well that’s pretty much a pre-requisite for being a housewife so glad to hear!

Teddi, 36, is a mother of two and is a ‘wellness accountability coach’ (whatever that is.) Her passions include “learning about everybody from different cultures, different lifestyles, whatever it is.” As for why she joined housewives? “How could I turn it down?”

Her favs (so far) include Dorit, Kyle and Ms. Vanderpump: “They made it super fun and easy and comfortable for me. I’m not one to force a connection. But I have a lot of fun with Kyle [Richards], too. She makes me laugh!”

In case you may wonder why she is so passionate about wellness, it’s because she has made it a lifestyle as a result of some past struggles:

“I was a weight fluctuator my whole life,” says the reality star, who says she weighed over 200 pounds when pregnant with her son Cruz, now 3. “I thought it was just going to come off, but it didn’t. I was constantly complaining to my husband and my friends. I was angry a lot of the time.”

I’m sure any female out there understands the struggle with fluctuating weight so despite her wealth, she sounds relatable.

As for her famous father, the legendary musician John Mellencamp, she reveals he is the ultimate grandpa. Teddi didn’t mention if he will be making an appearance this season; however can you imagine a duet with Erika Jayne?? LOL

“They call him Peepaw. He’s so much fun with them. We’re excited for the holidays. He told my daughter she can watch a movie and stay up late!”

Personally I’m super excited for RHOBH (especially since I have not been feeling RHONJ or the OC.) We are looking forward to seeing Teddi make her debut with the fabulous ladies of Beverly Hills.

Be sure to tune in to the RHOBH premiere on Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST then come back to AllAboutTRH to discuss!
