Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: Erika and I Ended On a Good Note

"I get why the reunion is necessary — it really opens up the conversation to a place where it needs to go."

The long and short of it is that this season was a fun, educational, emotional time. 100%.

How to Watch

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

I get why the reunion is necessary — it really opens up the conversation to a place where it needs to go. And with Erika, I think we finally find some sort of understanding as to how each of us views the other. Regarding Erika recalling Dorit “hammering” me all season, the reason my reactions weren’t the same than with Erika is because the tone was very different. The only other thing that left me scratching at my extensions is that Erika freely admits that she’s an ---hole yet tries to put my reactions to her as something wrong with me. But we end on a good note, and I’m looking forward to what the future may hold there.

There’s not much else I can say (as you see, my blogs got me in a bit of hot water) other than I don’t regret anything that I wrote here this season. I tried my best to use these blogs as a cathartic way to get across how I was feeling in the moment as well as when watching the episodes back, and I like to think I did that with a lot of humor, no matter how shady they may have been.

I want to thank every single fan of Housewives out there for watching each week — whether you liked me or found me boring, I appreciate all the reactions and feedback, no matter how hard of a horse pill some were to swallow.

I should also thank the people who made sure I wasn’t a hot mess in every episode:
-Alex Taylor (Makeup):
-Laura Rugetti (Hair):
-Josh Ross (Skin):
-Celeste Pino (Stylist and Babysitter Extraordinaire)

Lastly (since this blog has become a Grammy acceptance speech), thank you to my team at for helping me grow the company so organically and quickly and to all our clients who inspire me every day.

Until next time, I’ll be getting in some family love, taking on some exciting new projects, and of course — horses!
