Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is officially done with her first season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and she learned a lot about herself!
Teddi had a pretty wild debut season on RHOBH. She made some good friendships and had a little drama with others. The one thing that Teddi learned though, was to go with her instincts – no matter the situation. Teddi said, “I learned that I should always trust my gut. I do that in my day-to-day life, but going into the show, I hesitated with my gut a little bit. That led me astray, but then I was like, ‘No, go back to trusting your gut and what works for you.'”
She opened up to AOL, “The biggest thing for me is, when you’re living it, you think that maybe you’re being too much in your own head or too self-critical, but when you watch it back, it’s like, ‘No, this is actually happening, this person is actually treating you this way and you’re really feeling this way.’ In a way, you feel almost validated by your original thoughts, but sometimes it doesn’t feel great. The biggest thing I can say, whether it was when I started the season, watching the season or living it, is that I was completely myself the whole time. I can be embarrassed by something, but I can’t really have any regrets because I’m being honest.”
Going into a reality show, she discussed that you think it’s scripted or edited. However; Teddi said it’s “a true story.” The Real Housewives are indeed real. Teddi opened up, “It’s actually what’s happening, and it plays out the way that it actually happened. Nobody is coaching you. You’re going in blind, living your life the way you’re going to live it and that’s how it’s shown. The only person you can be upset with is yourself. It’s truly is like therapy.”
I have to say, I think Teddi was a great addition to RHOBH! I enjoyed her on the show. It seems like she developed a genuine friendship with costar, Kyle Richards. She, of course, had some moments with Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi. Overall though, I think she had a good first season for Real Housewives. We’ll have to stay tuned for more!
