Teddi Mellencamp owns her bad behavior after making some not-so-nice claims about Lisa Vanderpump’s relationship with her late brother, Mark Vanderpump.
The All-In accountability coach took a few minutes at the start of the latest episode of her Two T’s in a Pod podcast to say “I’m sorry” to her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star and friend.
For weeks, there had been endless chatter and comments about how LVP was treated during season nine and the loss of her brother versus this season of Beverly Hills and Rinna dealing with the loss of her mom,” Teddi said.
“I made some comments on this podcast to give some clarity and perspective of the women then versus now, and also mentioned how I now would have reacted differently if I could go back,” she continued. “I had no intention of trying to hurt LVP. When I said nobody knew she had a brother, I meant because she never spoke about him to the group before his passing. While I met no ill intent with my words, I realize grief is a delicate thing. And I, nor anybody can determine or dictate how anybody should react. So I truly apologize.”
As we previously reported, Teddi claimed that LVP wasn’t close to her brother Mark prior to his death. She said that LVP never talked about her brother, which is why she and other members of the RHOBH cast were shocked that she was so upset over his death.
While Teddi meant for her comments to be an example of why you don’t judge someone’s grief, which is what she learned after watching back season 9 of RHOBH. However, Teddi’s comments didn’t come across that way and infuriated Bravo fans who rallied around LVP. Said fans then went after Teddi on social media and bashed her up and down.
Teddi reacted to the attacks on her Instagram Story, saying, “So after this morning’s online attacks, death threats, you know, the works. Exactly what LVP wanted to happen is happening. I called my producers and asked what exactly did I say?”
“Their words, not mine, you actually kinda trolled yourself,” she added. “And you said after the season with LVP, where I did not know that she had a brother, and I watched back that she was grieving, I am unable to comment on somebody’s grief other than it is hard to say it is OK to hurt others when you are grieving.”
“That being said, that’s why I didn’t want to comment more in regards to Lisa Rinna grieving her mother,” she added. “I don’t know what it’s like to grieve, so I’m unable to speak to it.”
LVP responded by telling her fans not to be vicious to Teddi, tweeting, “Ok, let’s move on…I said what I had to say… No viciousness, please…”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
