In a post on Instagram Teddi poked fun at LVP’s diva ways and the fact that she refused to shoot the season 9 promos with the rest of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast.
“#BTS #StandInSunday,” Teddi captioned the post, which features all of the RHOBH except for LVP, who has someone sitting in her place. Oh, the shade!
Teddi also tagged all of her co-stars in the post but not surprisingly left LVP out. Burn!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that LVP was photoshopped into the season 9 cast photos after refusing to shoot with her co-stars.

“They won’t do a group shot with us. So we’re sequestered in a room. But somebody’s holding out and won’t come out and shoot with us, can you imagine? Who is that?” Rinna told fans back in September during an Instagram Live with Erika Girardi. “They’re going to have to, like, put her, in a computer-like way.”
As for LVP, she was in the middle of feuding with several of her co-stars and “couldn’t imagine” shooting the promos with them.
“There is beef between Dorit and LVP, and LVP and Teddi Mellencamp,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “They did a cast shoot for the new promo shots and Lisa wanted to shoot separately and do hair and makeup separately.”
Meanwhile, another source confirmed the rumors that LVP asked to “shoot separately” telling Hollywood Life, “She did it the same day that the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ cast photos were taken. A lot of the fights were still fresh and Lisa couldn‘t imagine having to take a photo with the other ladies. The other ladies were hoping Lisa would join, but ultimately, Lisa asked Bravo to allow her to take her photo separately and they allowed her to do so.”
This incident had a snowball effect and from this point on, Lisa Vanderpump refused to film with the rest of her RHOBH co-stars which should make for quite an interesting ninth season.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
