After only three seasons on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it looks like Teddi Mellencamp has been fired. The DailyMail has reported that the RHOBH star is getting the ax after being branded as, “stale,” and, “boring.”
Mellencamp’s Time on the Show Was Underwhelming
Ever since Mellencamp joined the cast of RHOBH, she’s struggled to find a niche. According to a production insider who spoke to DailyMail, “‘She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members.’
‘The issue is, the other cast members don’t particularly like her and beyond Kyle [Richards] no one is friends with her.
‘Kyle will most likely dump her, when Bravo does.'”
As Mellencamp struggled to make friends and didn’t impress fans with her personality, Bravo eventually had to reexamine whether she had a place on the show moving forward. It seems that their answer has become a resounding no. Mellencamp has a strange talent for being central to drama while simultaneously being boring about it.
Mellencamp’s Beef Over Fitness
Recently, Mellencamp has come under fire for a fitness program she offers to women and new moms. Mellencamp herself dropped an impressive 80lbs, and worked to create a fitness and nutrition program that other people could follow to do the same. However, critics including Camille Grammar have challenged the restrictive regime for her All In fitness program. According to DailyMail, the producer insider said, “‘It is concerning that she is pushing a business that young women, Bravo‘s key audience, are claiming is unhealthy and downright dangerous.’
‘Regardless of how much Teddi begs to keep her job when she is told, the network will not change their mind. She’s done.’
Alleged former clients of Teddi’s program have come forward with their experiences, shared by Gellis, claiming that they were initially restricted to approximately 500 calories while being required to do a daily hour of cardio.
The program, which prides itself on ‘accountability’ has four different levels starting with a two-week Jumpstart plan before clients can move to the Monthly program, Weight and Workout and then maintenance.”
Mellencamp Received Death Threats over Season 10
This isn’t the first time Mellencamp has brought drama that she may not be popular enough to withstand on the show. During season 10, the cast was divided over allegations by Brandi Glanville that she and castmate Denise Richards had an affair. Richards denied it, and the women weighed in. Mellencamp’s reaction to the affair was accused of being bi-phobic, and fans on the internet blasted her for the way she treated the rumors about the pair. Angry with her for her behavior, trolls responded to an Instagram post by Mellencamp about RHOBH with death threats to the reality star and her children. Mellencamp was forced to close commenting on the post and clapped back in an Instagram video addressing the trolls.
Time for Teddi to Go
With Mellencamp potentially selling a dangerous weight loss program to their target audience, Bravo has had to consider if the mother of 3 brings enough to the show to be worth it. Apparently, the answer is no. With Mellencamp’s, “meh,” performance and inability to fit in with the cast aside from Richards, it makes sense that it’s time for her to go. Bravo has not officially responded to the rumors, but all signs point to Mellencamp being out. Although there have been rumors of her firing flying for months, it seems as though Bravo has finally had enough of her drama to boring ratio. We will follow this story and share updates as they occur.
