Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was ready, and feeling strong, for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion!
The Bravo beauty was ready to dive in and discuss this season, for her first ever RHOBH reunion. She especially wanted to go over the drama she had this year with fellow co-star, Dorit Kemsley. In her Bravo blog, Teddi wrote, “I’m coming in brave — I got a fresh spray tan and still wore a white dress. Come at me!” She wasn’t going to back down from anyone, and she was prepared to discuss the tension with Dorit. The two lovely ladies don’t exactly see eye to eye. In fact, Teddi said, “I really think that after her run on Housewives, she should go into politics, because she can masterfully spin any situation.”
Teddi addressed the reunion in her blog, of course, and said, “Going into the reunion after having watched the entire season back, it’s hard not to drudge up feelings for things that you thought you were over.”
Dorit has a swimwear line that she designed, called ‘Beverly Beach By Dorit.’ In honor of RHOBH, Dorit decided to name a swimsuit after each of the ladies – except for Teddi. It wasn’t exactly a shock, since the two aren’t friends and don’t get along very well. Teddi commented on the situation, “So when the swimsuit naming situation comes up with Dorit, it’s our first chance to try and clear the air. Honestly, watching all of the times Dorit dismissed me, rolled her eyes, and basically just had an air of dislike towards me, I felt like I should explain that.”
Teddi explained, “I know that I’ve had some interview moments when I’ve said some shady things, but that’s what those are for, to express to the audience what we were feeling in the moment, and I always tried to do so with a sense of humor. But I never, in times with anybody when Dorit wasn’t around or in interviews, said anything to make it seem as if I actively disliked Dorit. I have even said multiple times that I don’t think she’s malicious, and we have a good time together.”
