RHOBH’s Teddi Mellencamp says Denise Richards STILL has her blocked on Instagram and reveals how the Wild Things star tried to set her up to look bad on the show
Teddi Mellencamp and Denise Richards memorably butted heads during season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
And now Teddi has opened up about the real reason behind their falling out, claiming it started when Denise tried to ‘set her up’ to look bad on the show.
Discussing the situation on her podcast Two T’s In a Pod, Teddi said she and Denise were originally ‘close-ish’ for a while and ‘never had any issues’.

However, things changed when the pair were seated together on a flight for one of the cast trips and Denise allegedly asked Teddi to bring up her ex-husband Charlie Sheen on camera.
‘She was going through stuff with Charlie and she said to me, “I don’t want to have to bring it up, can you bring it up?”‘ Teddi explained.
‘I said, “Yeah, no problem! I’ll bring it up.” I felt similar because I didn’t like having to bring up stuff in regards to my dad [John Mellencamp], so I was like, “I get it.”
‘And then when I did it she had this shocked face, like, “Why would you bring that up? I don’t want my kids…”‘
‘Can you bring it up?’ Teddi claimed on her podcast that Denise had asked her privately to bring up some issues she was having with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen on camera, but when Teddi did it, Denise acted shocked and pretended she didn’t want to discuss it
Teddi’s co-host Tamra Judge then interrupted: ‘Shannon [Beador] used to do that to me. “Bring this up,” then I bring it up, and she’d be like, “Why would you say that?”‘
After seeing Denise’s reaction, Teddi said she stormed off in a rage once the cameras stopped rolling.
‘And then I was like, “I did you a favour!” We weren’t on camera, I threw all my stuff down and I walked out,’ she said.

‘Then I said to Garcelle [Beauvais], “What she just did there was f***ed up. You better never do that to me. You saw the whole thing go down; you saw her asking me to do it. I don’t play that game.”‘
Brandi Glanville, who was a guest on the podcast, chimed in: ‘[Denise] just likes to play the victim. I feel like she just likes to be the victim, a lot.’
Teddi then admitted that Denise still has her blocked on Instagram after the feud escalated during season 10 of RHOBH, which aired last year.

Both Teddi and Denise exited the show after season 10, although Teddi went on to appear briefly in season 11 as a guest.
Since leaving the show, she has teamed up with former Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge to launch a joint podcast called Two T’s In a Pod.
Meanwhile, Tamra will be back on the small screen next year as part of the next Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip cast.
