Teddi Mellencamp has Lisa Rinna’s back as the former soap star endures a rollercoaster of emotional ups and downs following the death of her mother, Lois Rinna.
On a recent episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa had the meltdown of all meltdowns at co-star Dorit Kemsley’s charity event. Lisa screamed at Sutton Stracke as the rest of the party watched on in horror. Eventually, Lisa was forced to put the kibosh on her meltdown as Dorit introduced the event’s musical guest, Melissa Ethridge.
The All-In accountability coach addressed Lisa’s emotional outburst on her and Tamra Judge’s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod.
“I haven’t had anyone immediate pass away either but back at the beginning of my and [my husband] Edwin’s relationship when I first started having kids when we were having issues, I took it out on everyone as well and myself, and beat myself up and had big emotions over things that had absolutely nothing to do,” Teddi explained, noting that she has sympathy for the 59-year-old actress.
Despite Teddi’s support for Lisa, she insists that she’s not c0-signing the former soap star’s behavior.
Teddi said: “I don’t think us saying we empathize with Rinna is us saying that we think what she did was right. But I also don’t understand why none of the other women were like ‘Rinna, enough! Obviously, you’re going through something right now; let’s go.’”
The mom of three then shared her own theory about Lisa’s anger. Teddi believes Lisa was hurt that the RHOBH cast hadn’t “reached out” more following her mother’s death.
“I think also the problem is she has additional resentment that none of these women reached out to her about her – like all you are seeing is what’s happening on camera, there’s like no extra ‘how are you doing since your mom,’ I think that’s also what she’s pissed about. And it’s just coming out in really jacked up ways,” Teddi shared.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
