RHOBH's Teddi Mellencamp Accuses Denise Richards of Taking a "Cheap Shot" With Claims of Living in Her Dad's Shadow and Reveals Denise's Kids Will Likely Grow Up With the Same Stigma, Plus Accuses Camille Grammer of Twisting Things

Teddi Mellencamp was “not surprised” by the news of Denise Richards‘ exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

During a recent Q&A with fans on her Instagram Stories, Teddi accused Denise of trying to outshine the other women of the show, addressed a question about the start of filming on season 11, and shaded Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer over their recent tweets regarding her new home in Encino, California.

“Are you happy Denise has left the show?” a fan asked Teddi on September 10.

“Not surprised,” she replied.

According to Teddi, Denise wasn’t a good fit for the group because she was trying to be the “star” of the series.

“Anytime one person wants to be the ‘star’ of the show and control how they are portrayed when it’s about showing the truth as an ensemble it doesn’t end well,” Teddi explained. “I wish her the best and hope she is thriving and happy. I also hope she stops referring to herself in the third person but I guess I have to let that part go.”

After poking fun at Denise and her many comments about being “Denise f*cking Richards,” Teddi admitted that when it comes to a future friendship, there likely won’t be one between her and her ex-co-star.

“I never say never about anything but neither of us are banging down each other’s door to be in one another’s life,” she noted.

“When does filming for season 11 start?” another fan asked.

“Unclear. My guess is another month or so but truly I do not know,” Teddi replied.

When another Instagram user asked Teddi if she was a fan of RHOBH before she joined the show in 2017, Teddi confirmed she was not before adding that she is an avid watcher of The Real Housewives of Potomac.

“I watch [The Real Housewives of Potomac] and am obsessed!!! I watch that one religiously,” Teddi admitted. “Any of the other franchises I watch when I can.”

As for Teddi’s comments about Lisa and Camille, they came after a fan questioned her about whether RHOBH should be renamed as The Real Housewives of Encino now that she and a number of the women, including Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley, reside in the area.

“Is this Camille and LVP tweeting again?” Teddi asked.

At the end of last month, after news of Teddi’s move from the Hollywood Hills to Encino was confirmed, Lisa and Camille weighed in on Twitter.

“So most of the cast now lives in Encino? They need to change the name of the show to ‘The Real Housewives of the Valley,’” Camille suggested on Twitter on August 27.

In response, along with a photo of the Beverly Hills sign edited to read “Vanderpump,” Lisa reminded Camille and her online audience that she still resides in the ritzy town.

“Hello….from BH,” she wrote.
