Never saw it coming!
A week after announcing her exit, Teddi Mellencamp is opening up about her departure from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“This past week has been such craziness around here,” she started off before revealing how she found out she had been kicked the curb by Bravo.
According to Teddi, she didn’t find out about her firing by Bravo; instead, she found out from her friends and via the press.
“I woke up, I was on the Peloton, and my non-television show girlfriends started texting me, and they’re like, ‘Hey, is everything cool?’ And I’m like, ‘Why?’ And they’re like, ‘Well, it’s all over the DailyMail that you’re no longer a housewife,'” she recalled. “And I was like, ‘Ugh, come on! Whatever.’ And then I went on DailyMail and looked. Then I sent the message to my manager, agent, publicist, and was like, ‘Hey guys, what’s up?’ And maybe three hours later I got the phone call, and they’re like, ‘Hey… so your contracts not getting renewed as a Housewife.'”
She also admitted that she went through “different stages” of processing the shocking news.
“We all hate to admit we have one. But it’s like, ‘What is happening? How did this happen? How did I have no idea?'” she said. “Of course my heart broke because I was like, ‘How was I blindsided by this? How did this happen? How didn’t I know?'”
While the news was shocking at first, Teddi says the longer she thought about it, the more it made sense.
“I think for the last couple of months, I was preparing myself… I filmed so many amazing things that were never shown on the show… it should have been the writing on the wall,” she said. “All the things that make me a likable, redeeming human being were not shown on the season. So if you only see a certain part of somebody, it’s really hard to connect to them, I think.”
“I’m not blaming production, or Bravo, or whatever it is, but I was there to do a certain part, and that part I did,” she continued. “But if you don’t see the other part, it’s hard to relate to a person.”
Teddi went on to say her exit from RHOBH is like “a breakup.” And while Teddi is still emotional over her exit, she has no plans to share that emotion on Twitter.
She then took a swipe at Camille Grammer by vowing never to be that former Housewife tweeting about the show’s current drama.
“I’m really excited not to be a part of Twitter… I’m putting it out there to all my Tea Pod listeners and to you. I don’t want to be the ex-Housewife that is tweeting on the show years after I have been on the show about other people’s problems. I never want to be that person,” she said. “I never want to be the person shading somebody years after.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
