Teddi Mellencamp Recalls Dad John Reaming Her Out "Badly" Amid Christmas Feud, Reveals If Garcelle Follows Her, and Says Kathy's Publicist Wouldn't Allow Her on Podcast

Teddi Mellencamp looked back at a holiday dispute she had with her father, John Mellencamp, during the latest episode of her podcast.

After her guest-host and longtime friend Kyle Richards spoke of her complicated dynamic with sisters Kathy Hilton and Kim Richards, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member recalled being reamed out by the famed rocker as her siblings, who had enlisted her to approach him, “left [her] hanging.”

“It was maybe two Christmases ago. I’m on a group chat with all my siblings, there are five of us, and they’ll kinda always ask me to be the ringleader of the ones who will talk to my dad about something and I said something, and it pissed my dad off and immediately, I could almost cry just talking about it right now, immediately, he reamed me out so badly and told me that he was canceling Christmas on all the siblings because of me,” Teddi revealed on the October 28 episode of Two Ts in a Pod.

According to Teddi, she and her siblings had agreed to confront John about a topic that was not explained. However, once she took the initiative, they backed down and failed to support her amid the family feud.

“None of the siblings said, ‘Actually we all called Teddi. We all came to this agreement together.’ They left me hanging,” she explained.

Then, after joking about the many follows and unfollows amongst the RHOBH cast, which most recently saw Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke unfollowing Lisa Rinna, Teddi surprisingly revealed, “Garcelle follows me,” before noting that she failed to appear on her podcast at BravoCon because she arrived late to the event.

Also, at BravoCon, Teddi said Kathy nearly agreed to be featured on her show. As she recalled, she and Kathy had a friendly discussion, during which Kathy expressed empathy for her melanoma battle. However, when Teddi invited Kathy to appear on Two Ts in a Pod, Kathy’s publicist quickly intervened.

“[Kathy] was about ready to say yes, and then her publicist looked at me and said, ’No, she needs to eat a burger.’ So she sat right next to where my podcast table was and ate,” Teddi revealed.

“But she was very kind to me in the moment,” Teddi added.
