Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: These Ladies Move Fast
New 'Wife Teddi gives her first impressions of the other RHOBH ladies.
Hello RHOBH fans! I am so excited to share this journey with you. I hope you all enjoy this season more than ever.
Yes, I have that famous last name, but I grew up with very grounded values and was taught that money isn’t everything—something I like to think I’m teaching my own children, Cruz and Slate, whom you briefly met on tonight’s episode.
I don’t know what I’m teaching them by revealing that their father/my husband Edwin was supposed to be a one-night stand, other than life doesn’t always go how you expect it and you should always learn somebody’s name when you first meet them. We’ve been together for nine years and have our beautiful children, so the story definitely has a happy ending.
I love spending time with my family and am always looking to make new friends with moms who have similarly aged kids. So when a mutual friend suggested I invite Dorit and the adorable Jagger to The BeatBuds’ music class, I said of course! Dorit and I hit it off immediately, and the conversation flowed nicely, so when she told me about Lisa Vanderpump and her love of horses, I knew I had to meet her as well. I was a professional equestrian for over 10 years of my life and still ride faithfully. Sometimes I think I like horses more than people!
Lisa Vanderpump was so warm and welcoming, and I think our sense of humor is very similar, although she probably can get away with more with that accent. The two of them wasted no time filling me in on some of the girls. I listened and gave a bit of advice as if it were me in the situation, but I definitely wasn’t going to allow that to cloud my judgement. Besides, I’ll be able to make my own impressions when I meet the rest of the girls—in Vegas! I thought it was so great of Dorit and Lisa Vanderpump to invite me on this trip and share in celebrating my birthday.
I already get a bit anxious meeting new people, and I tend to try and observe first and not force friendships, but these ladies move fast. When I met Kyle, Camille, and Erika at the airport, they all seemed nice and open. I may have lost them a bit when Dorit revealed my dislike for shopping, but hey, at least Lisa Vanderpump now has somebody to carry her bags. And from what she says about me, looks like I may be carrying them naked.
There’s a lot of underlying tension within this group from previous issues and it starts to get resolved next week when Lisa Rinna joins us in Vegas. But new issues also start to arise, and they definitely don’t stay in Vegas.
Thank you for following along with me on this wild ride. I’m looking forward to sharing more of my life, family and business (more on that soon!) with you. In the meantime, please visit my website www.laworkoutjunkie.com to see what I am so passionate about: wellness and accountability.
