John Blizzard Releases Text Messages with RHOBH's Teddi Mellencamp and Calls Her a "Manipulator! Plus John Sessa Calls Her Out

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp is being called out by the employees of Vanderpump Dogs over her role in the Puppy Gate debacle.

First, John Blizzard, Lisa Vanderpump’s employee at Vanderpump Dogs, is releasing his own text messages with Teddi in an attempt to show that she’s a “manipulator,” as John Sessa is also calling her out for going public with certain details about the situation that he says were meant to remain private.

Teddi has released a number of text messages exchanged with Blizzard in the past couple of weeks, both on and off the show, and yesterday, Blizzard took to his Twitter page to release some texts he exchanged with Teddi.

In the texts, Teddi, who has insisted she did not have a close friendship with Blizzard, appears very friendly with him as she joked about her plans to try to get her brother, Hud Mellencamp on Vanderpump Rules.

In the screenshot shared by Blizzard, Teddi lets him know that Hud is single and Blizzard informs her that another Vanderpump Dogs employee named Hannah was interested in him and was wondering why Teddi had yet to set them up. Teddi responds by telling Blizzard that her main focus was to first try to get Hud on Vanderpump Rules, jokingly adding that trying to get him on Lisa’s spinoff takes priority over any romantic relationships. 

“Bc I am booked up trying to get his a** on Vanderpump Rules first,” wrote Teddi, adding “#AlwaysSlanging.”

A screenshot of the texts is below. Blizzard shared them on Twitter with the caption: “Because we are in the business of leaking text messages… #TheRealManipulator.”

It’s not exactly clear what Blizzard is trying to prove with these text messages. In the comments under his Twitter post, some fans think it shows Teddi might have been getting close to Lisa with an ulterior motive.

Others noted that Teddi might have downplayed her attempt in trying to get her brother a job with Lisa. In a recent interview, Teddi stated she was simply trying to get her brother an interview at SUR, while these texts show she actually had a goal of getting him on the Vanderpump Rules show. 

Hud did end up getting a job at TomTom, but he has since stopped working there. Teddi has however stated that her feud with Lisa did not play a role in his departure. 

Sessa, Lisa’s partner at Vanderpump Dogs, also took to Twitter following Tuesday’s episode to accuse Teddi of bringing negative publicity to his dog rescue.

“I’m aghast at the fact that Teddi would continue to [reveal] more information regarding a matter that has become very uncomfortable for our foundation,” tweeted Sessa. “We never intended for the extent of Lucy’s journey or the entirety of what was told to us by the shelter manager to be revealed.”

During the recent RHOBH episode, Teddi stated she had been told false information about Puppy Gate which included someone telling her that Dorit Kemsley allegedly locked the dog in a basement for months. Sessa appears to be insinuating that the information wasn’t false, but just wasn’t meant to be made public. 


As it’s been recently reported, there is currently a possible spin-off about the Vanderpump Dogs rescue in the works. 

There is also somewhat of a happy ending regarding this never-ending saga, as Teddi’s brother Hud and the Vanderpump Dogs employee Hannah are currently a couple!

The RHOBH airs Tuesday nights at Bravo at 9/8c.
