Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: Dorit Is Looking to Turn the Blame on Me

"It’s the same point I’ve made before: Just own what you said, apologize, and move on."

Every Insult Is Sheathed in a Joke

You finally get to see me with a client, Dana—albeit in the sexiest sweat traps ever—and in my element: supporting and uplifting women. As I say on the show, I know there are some eye rolls about what an “accountability coach” may be, but I don’t care. What I care about are my clients’ successes and transformations that make them happier, healthier women. My team and I are helping women across the country and Canada (note: each woman on my team, which now includes Dana, has completed and continues to live the program!), so please, if you’d like more information, visit to get started.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

At Camille’s charity event (what a strong ass woman, Camille is), I wasn’t going to fall into the trap that is the merry-go-round of Dorit’s mind. We discussed it at length in NYC, I absolutely took ownership of what I said, and I have nothing left to add. It’s the same point I’ve made before: Just own what you said, apologize, and move on. Plus, that wind was about to rip the extensions out of my head! As to Erika’s “don’t get in the fight, then back up”— I didn’t back up anywhere. I was very direct with everyone, including Dorit, in NYC about what was said. So the only thing that needs to be backed up is the bus she’s trying to throw me under.

Also, both ladies use the word “bashing,” but it’s a little extreme and hyperbolic (thanks, thesaurus!). It’s also a word I see used to describe my talking heads sometimes. Yes, I can be shady when speaking my truth and insight into a person or situation, but let’s please not confuse that with “bashing” somebody’s character or person. The irony of this is they’re doing exactly what they say I’m doing— making it much bigger than it was. I told Kyle what was said, and when Lisa Vanderpump asked me about it, I specifically made a point that I do not think Dorit was saying anything to be malicious. I’m not Merriam-Webster, but I don’t think that constitutes as saying Dorit was “bashing” anybody. The only reason this is all now a “big deal” is because Dorit refuses to take accountability (this session is free, Dorit) and is looking to turn the blame on me for the words she said. And remember, Erika, you agreed with me that your feelings would be hurt if you were in LVP’s shoes. “I would be a little pissed. The truth is, yes,” as you and I walked up the stairs in NYC.

Lisa Vanderpump’s birthday starts with us laughing our glasses off, but, after I wipe the brown off my nose (I mean, that pink bareback pad, come on), quickly devolves into a bunch a ribbing and gags, and Dorit’s out the door. But you know what they say—you can’t continue to poke a Teddi bear or that Teddi bitch may bite back.
