In addition to Lisa Vanderpump, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz, there's one more familiar name who became a part of the Tom Tom team: Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's younger brother, Hud Mellencamp. Earlier this season of Vanderpump Rules, we saw Teddi swing by SUR to ask Lisa if she would consider giving her brother an interview for a position at one of her restaurants since he just moved out to Los Angeles. "He's at the place where he needs to start making money but also meeting people," Teddi said.
Lisa agreed to give Hud a chance, especially since she was feeling sentimental about siblings following the sudden passing of her older brother, Mark Vanderpump, just a few months prior. We saw Hud sit down with Lisa and the Toms later on in the season as they interviewed prospective employees for the new bar and restaurant. And Hud got the gig on the spot, which you can see in the above video. "That was like an immediate hire," Sandoval said sounding impressed during the episode.
Teddi came out to support her brother in his new job at Tom Tom during the DailyMail.com & DailyMailTV Summer Party in July. "This is officially the first time my brother has ever picked up after me so I had to document it with a photo. You looked super cute working at Tom Tom last night @hudmoney," Teddi captioned a photo of herself with Hud and her husband, Edwin Arroyave, at the event. "Love you and so happy you are living in LA so we can spend more time together aka I can bug you as much as possible. #bestoldersister aka #mostannoyingoldersister #loveyou #siblings."
But since then, a lot has changed for Teddi and Lisa. The two would go on to come at odds over what happened after Dorit Kemsley and her family adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dog Center, which we're seeing unfold this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
So when The Daily Dish caught up with Teddi in New York City last week, we had to know whether Hud was still working at Tom Tom and if he was impacted at all by her tension with Lisa. "He doesn't work there still, but that's completely separate," Teddi said, noting that whatever's been going on on RHOBH is between her and Lisa and doesn't have anything to do with her brother's job. "He got a job working like an office job, and he couldn't do both. He was like the hours were too crazy to work day and night."
If his sister is any indication, we're sure Hud has a bright future ahead of him, no matter where he's working.
