Tamra Judge Just Met Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and We Want to Know What Took So Long
This is a match made in Real Housewives heaven.
Ah, don't you just love it when Real Housewives from different cities get together? Two Real Housewives worlds recently collided, and we are so into this pairing.
The Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra Judge recently crossed paths with one of the newest ladies on the block, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. The two caught up at Mariners Church in Mission Viejo, California, according to Instagram, along with Teddi's husband, Edwin Arroyave. Tamra had the sweetest things to say about the couple on Instagram. "Look who I ran into @teddimellencamp #GodsWork," Tamra captioned the photo of the trio. "I’ve been wanting to meet this inspirational couple. Even more beautiful in person."
Teddi returned the love. "Loved bumping into the pint-sized and baptized @tamrajudge at church today!" she gushed in the caption to the same photo on Instagram. "Such a strong woman and even more beautiful in person."
Now that we see Tamra and Teddi together we're thinking, "What took so long?" These two seem like they would be the best of friends, considering their faith, the fact that they're both moms, and their love of health and fitness. Teddi even knows a thing or two about O.C. life since she has a beach house in Dana Point, California, which we saw earlier this season of RHOBH.
The Daily Dish caught up with Teddi in February before she had met anyone from RHOC, but she was definitely eager to get to know this crew. "I haven't met any of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but Tamra and Shannon [Beador] and Kelly Dodd, they've all reached out to me, and they're super nice," she said (clip above). "So I definitely want to the next time I'm in town."
Teddi joked that she's hopeful that a visit to her beach house from the O.C. ladies would go more smoothly than when she had The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills over earlier this season. "I'm like, 'How do you guys like a potluck?' I'm pretty sure they'll be fine with it. I think they'd be cool," Teddi shared. "I've started watching O.C., and they seem like a fun group. It seems like a lot of drama as well. Different types of drama, I'd say."
But Teddi said her house in the O.C. really allows her to escape all the stress and drama of daily life in Los Angeles. "What I love so much about when we're in Orange County is truthfully that we don't know a ton of people, so it's really about our family," she told The Daily Dish. "It's our time to kind of go [take a deep breath] and decompress from L.A., from Beverly Hills, from some days that'll feel like a rat race. It takes us out of everything that we know, so what really matters is what we're focusing on."
