Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: She Takes Every Opportunity to be Passive Aggressive

" matter how much you want to keep your hands clean, there’s always at least a fingerprint left behind."

By Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave
This Is What Lisa Vanderpump Looks Like on Laughing Gas

I write this blog as I listen to Michael Bolton’s, "A Symphony of Hits," which was released earlier this month just in time for us to talk about him at Rinna’s house (loved doing the chocolate heart!).

How to Watch

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

"Time, Love and Tenderness"

That’s what it takes. When I moved to Los Angeles, I had big dreams to be an actress and a singer. Soon, the comments on my weight came. Then, I booked a pilot. But I will never forget the call—I would only be cast with the stipulation that I must lose weight before filming. That was the final straw for those dreams. I was sad, angry, and my confidence suffered.

I share my story because I know many suffer from the stigma that our appearance justifies how we feel about ourselves. For years, I would alternate between overeating and under-eating. I am thankful for this platform and any opportunity to share my story, because I know there are many others out there dealing with the same thing. In the end, this all resulted in All IN, because after having my kids I knew I had to change my life; and now I want to pay it forward by changing others.

"Soul Provider"

That’s what Amelia is being to so many young people out there. Her story resonates with me as I’m sure it does with many of you. Amelia, a gorgeous, successful woman, opening up about her struggle with anorexia at such a young age is incredible. She is so strong to take back the power in her life and let so many people put a face to the disease. I hope people hear her story and embrace her with open hearts and minds. That she is open and confident enough to share with Lisa Rinna, her mother, shows what an amazing relationship they have.

"To Love Somebody"

Seeing Kyle tear up over her daughter going to college has me saying, “Why am I crying?” all over again! I know how much she loves her children and I know I’m going to be just as emotional when my little ones finally grow up and move out.

"Said I Loved You... But I Lied"

I need to say this regarding Dorit and the dog. Without spoiling much, when I initially found out, I was definitely not nice about it, especially since the story I was told was highly exaggerated (and continues to change—keep watching!). Dorit and I were not in a good place, so I wasn’t coming into this season as the president of her fan club. People knew that. However, once I saw what was happening, and after seeing Dorit and how our boys were getting along, I realized that it wasn’t for me to judge her decisions, especially since we all saw the dog was doing great.

The thing is Lisa Vanderpump and Dorit spoke about the situation off camera before we even filmed at Vanderpump Dogs, we find out. Lisa told Dorit everything was good. But then why does it seem like she takes every opportunity to be passive aggressive with resentment in her words and actions towards Dorit? Lisa says she’s trying to protect Dorit, but it sure feels like she’s trying to punish her. Because no matter how much you want to keep your hands clean, there’s always at least a fingerprint left behind. Lisa has a right to be upset about the dog, but then she should be forthright with her feelings and intentions.

"When a Man Loves a Woman"

He shaves off his ponytail for her. Period. And so we come to the climax of this blog. I need to get going... it’s Tuesday, and I’ve penciled some sex in on the calendar!
