Teddi Mellencamp Defends Walking In Kyle Richards’ Fashion Show After She’s Bombarded With ‘Negativity’ and Nasty Comments!

Teddi Mellencamp may be no supermodel but she went “all-in” when she walked the runway in co-star Kyle Richards’ fashion show during NYFW.

Despite being 15 weeks pregnant and giving it her best Cindy Crawford, some fans, maybe haters is a better name for them, still bombarded Teddi with “negativity.”

Now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is defending herself in a post on Instagram.

“Last weekend I had the opportunity to walk in a fashion show during NYFW. Now, I am no model— I can barely walk down the street properly— but I walked out there feeling good and excited to support my friend. That quickly shifted when I was hit with the barrage of memes and insta comments throwing negativity at me and my walk,” Teddi explained.

She continued, “I can definitely make fun of myself and am in on most jokes but sometimes it just gets to be too much. So I had a big ole cry and felt truly embarrassed— until I remembered this @brenebrown quote: “If you aren’t in the arena getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback.”

“And you know what, I am so damn proud of myself for having the courage to step out of my comfort zone, especially at 15-weeks pregnant in a flesh-colored bodysuit, and do my very best. We cannot control other’s actions, we can only control our own. So now, I’m just gonna smile brighter and keep on strutting. Shoutout to @kylerichards18 for absolutely killing it with @kyleandshahida! Such an amazing accomplishment #nyfw #babyonboard #bucketlist,” Teddi concluded.

Fans, celebs, and several Real Housewives rallied around Teddi and sent her messages of support and love.

Okay, Teddi’s walk wasn’t the best, I get it, but she’s not a model. She’s a reality TV star who’s walking in a fashion show. She’s not Gigi Hadid and she’s most likely never modeled before unlike some of her co-stars. People need to cut her some slack.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo for season 10 in early 2020.
