Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's Invitation to Her Retreat Is "a Disaster Waiting to Happen"

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has a perfect set of pearly whites, but that wasn't always the case. In grade school, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills accountability coach had an accident that shattered her teeth, leaving her with no option but to replace the original set. She opened up about the whole ordeal in a recent Instagram Story.

During an Ask Me Anything session, a follower wrote in to say: "Your teeth are amazing. Tell me they are au natural." Alas, "thank you; no, they're not," Teddi confessed. She didn't leave us hanging, though, and quickly spilled the backstory behind her falsies. 

"I knocked my teeth out in the eighth grade," the South Carolina native revealed. "I was pretending to be a horse, and was carrying somebody on my back leaving a Widespread Panic concert, and I tripped over a railroad track." Whoops! Well, all's well that ends well, and Teddi's smile is no worse for the wear:

In the past, Teddi's come clean about other cosmetic enhancements she's had done. "I had my boobs done back before I started housewives and I don't regret it but that's just me," she wrote, when pressed on her feelings about plastic surgery. 

And when it comes to getting that perfect smile, she's certainly not the only one in Beverly Hills who's gotten a little assist. Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, and even Dorit's hubby, PK, have opened up about their cosmetic dentistry.
