‘RHOBH’ star Teddi Mellencamp and dad, John Mellencamp, are clapping back at Denise Richards after she alleged that Teddi lives under John’s shadow.
Teddi got some unsettling news during the July 22 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that Denise had been viciously backstabbing her. Former show regular Brandi Glanville, 47, alleged that Denise told her Teddi would “do anything to be in this group” of women because she was desperately trying to get out from under her famous dad’s shadow.
The news didn’t sit well with both Teddi and her dad, and the 39-year-old Bravo star shared a conversation between them, where John had a snarky question about who Denise was.

The top of the text showed “Dads new cell” and he wrote to Teddi, “I know you are busy living in my shadow but…” Then he shared a photo of himself with Teddi and dissed the former Bond girl by botching her name, adding “Dennis Richards. Never heard of him.”
Teddi kept the laughter going, writing, “You know who DENISE is dad.” She then took a swipe about how Denise drops her ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s name. “She is the girl who mentions Charlie Sheen every episode,” Teddi added before telling her father, “Love you, call you tomorrow.”
Teddi snarked the Twitter post caption showing their text exchange, “Got my sense of humor from my dad’s shadow. #RHOBH.” Fans loved it, with @lizabeth_kb replying, “@TeddiMellencamp Pretty clear Dennis is jealous of everyone else on the show. Especially you,” while user @momofky331 wrote, “@TeddiMellencamp I think bravo should do a episode with you and your dad watching an episode of Beverly Hills!”
