Teddi Reveals What It Was Like to Be Sober During the RHOBH Santa Barbara Trip

Tedd Mellencamp Sober

While filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave didn't exactly consider sobriety to be a perk of pregnancy.

How to Watch

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

After inviting her followers to ask her anything via Instagram Stories, Teddi got real with one fan who asked how hard it was to be sober with the group during their trip to Santa Barbara that was shown on the May 27 episode. "I mean, I had to be sober the entire season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Teddi said before sarcastically quipping: "It was thrilling."

Still, sticking to sparkling water did have a benefit as the drama of the trip unfolded. As Teddi explained: "My memory was on point."

Although she didn't drink any alcohol on the trip, she was definitely excited to chow down on the food, as she joked about when another Instagram user inquired about her favorite snack during pregnancy. "On this week's episode it appears I'm taking down every charcuterie tray I could find," Teddi said after deeming cashews her "number one go-to" while pregnant. 

While Teddi joked about getting through the season sober, she previously admitted it wasn't as challenging as she once expected.  "I thought it was going to be harder than it actually was," she shared in a separate Instagram Q&A. "There were times like when we went on our international trip where I was like, this would've been nice. But it became kind of a running joke, like, 'Everyone needs to ask Teddi because she'll remember everything.' And I do!"

When the cameras aren't rolling (and she doesn't have a baby on the way), Teddi keeps her drinking to "maybe once a week," she shared. "When I'm filming Housewives, not pregnant, it tends to be more. We do a lot of dinners and drinks and events so it goes up, but I balance it when I'm not filming."
