Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: I'm Grateful for Erika's Apology

Teddi thinks there's a disconnect between Erika Girardi's message of empowerment and her actions.

By Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave
Lisa Vanderpump Suffers a Great Loss

I said a lot last week, so I’ll keep it quick here.

How to Watch

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

I’ve only known Lisa Vanderpump a short time now, but anybody who knows anything about her knows that her animals are her world. I think we all could see how much she was hurting and wanted to do whatever we could.

No matter how I or Edwin feel about psychics, I’m happy that I was reintroduced to the memory of my old friend.

I’m not happy that I’ve worn the same earring two episodes in a row. The HORROR.

I have to say, seeing how Dorit has reacted every time I call her doesn’t give me the warm and fuzzies. What else can I say? I called to apologize as soon as possible and that wasn’t good enough. What’s funny though, is that I didn’t mind when she ran to Erika and exaggerated what was said at my beach house. I owned what I actually said and moved on. But my phone call isn’t enough. Okay. Dorit seems to be the conductor of the Gaslight Express.

I am accepting of and grateful for Erika’s apology and am willing to move on and be cordial in return. But what I don't understand is how you can be preaching women empowerment and saying we should build each other up but then liking tweets such as this: 

You can be shady all you want (as I know I can be), but co-signing that you wish another woman would lose her job doesn’t scream “you go, girl!” in quite a positive way.
