Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave may have confirmed her departure from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills earlier this week, but that doesn't mean the friendships we have seen her cultivate over the past three seasons are coming to an end.
Teddi took to her Instagram Story on September 24 to answer several of fans' questions about her leaving RHOBH, including how the other Beverly Hills Housewives reacted to her leaving the show. "Nobody really knows what to say. Of course it’s like, ‘I can’t believe this, I’m so sorry, this is so crazy this is happening,'" Teddi shared. "But also, I truly know in my heart that all of the real friendships will continue on show or no show.”
In terms of who she still keeps in touch with today, Teddi said she still very much speaks to pretty much everyone from the cast. "I talk to Erika [Girardi], [Lisa] Rinna, and Kyle [Richards] almost every day," Teddi shared. "Dorit [Kemsley] was so incredible when it came to all the things that went down with my kids this year. Same with Sutton [Stracke]. Garcelle [Beauvais'] reached out.”
She also said that she especially plans on keeping in touch with Erika, Lisa, Kyle, and Dorit, who the group has dubbed the "Fox Force Five," after they traveled together to Provence, France in Season 9 of RHOBH. "I had so many laughs with the Fox Force Five, so I can't imagine not keeping in touch with them," Teddi said in her Instagram Story.
In fact, Teddi named the Provence trip as one of her favorite memories from her time on RHOBH, as well as the camping trip in Season 9. "I wish we could have done more camping trips," Teddi said. "It was so much fun. We learned so much."
Of course, Teddi will also come away with a lifelong friendship with Kyle. “I can’t even put into words what an amazing friend Kyle is and how much I love her family and our friendship," Teddi gushed. "And how crazy that we met on a reality television show.”
Kyle had similarly loving words for Teddi following her announcement that she would not be returning to RHOBH. "To my friend @teddimellencamp who I love [and] adore ... I am so grateful for #RHOBH for bringing you into my life. You are an amazing Mom, wife, sister, daughter [and] friend. You work so hard, always giving it your all. You are so smart, kind, thoughtful, funny [and] real," Kyle wrote in a post on Instagram on September 23. "I look forward to witnessing what the universe has in store for you next. I know it's going to be amazing. You deserve it all. Cheers."
