Teddi Mellencamp is shedding some light on Lisa Rinna’s recent split from her longtime publicist, Jill Fritzo.
Radar Online recently reported that Lisa and her publicist parted ways in late September/early October. The outlet claims the split was “mutual” despite rumors that Lisa was dropped by her publicist after she was booed at BravoCon.
Now, Lisa’s friend, former costar, and Fox Force Five member is revealing why Lisa and Fritzo parted ways.
“I did see a lot of things recently that Lisa Rinna was fired by her publicist, and I was like, you know what, I just want to get to the bottom of this right now. And I just texted her, I’m like, ‘Is it true that you got fired by your publicist?'” Teddi told listeners on her and Tamra Judge’s Two T’s in a Pod podcast.
According to Teddi, Lisa no longer wanted to work with her publicist because of who else Fritzo represented. Fritzo’s clients include Paris Hilton, former Housewives/Bravolebs Bethenny Frankle, and Denise Richards.
“And she said, ‘Jill and I parted ways. I didn’t want to be represented by someone who represents Paris Hilton, Bethenny, and Denise Richards any longer,'” Teddi explained.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return for season 13 in 2023.
