When a fan asked Teddi Mellencamp if she was happy that Denise Richards left ‘RHOBH,’ she just unleashed her brutally honest opinion without thinking twice.
On September 10, just two days after Denise’s departure from ‘RHOBH’ was announced, one fan asked Teddi in an Instagram Story Q&A a very sensitive question: “Are you happy Denise has left the show?” Teddi didn’t bother sugarcoating things but just revealed her true thoughts about the matter.
The star already had an essay prepared, one that seemed to also reference the former Bravo star having left RHOBH on bad terms with the cast.
Teddi was using two inside jokes here: one, the fact that her co-star once boldly referred to herself as “Denise F–king Richards” after Kyle called The Bold and The Beautiful star a “ragamuffin.” The second joke was a reference to Denise yelling “Bravo, Bravo, F–king Bravo” after trying to avoid a confrontational conversation at a cast dinner.

While Teddi didn’t drop Lisa Vanderpump’s name, her mention about certain stars wanting to “control how they are portrayed” and that not “end[ing] well” brings to mind the cast’s frustrations with both LVP and Denise.
Throughout Season 10, Denise was wrapped up in an affair scandal with Brandi Glanville that had the cast questioning if Denise was trustworthy.
Meanwhile, in Season 9, many cast members were uncertain if they could trust LVP after the Vanderpump Rules star denied a rumor that she leaked information about Puppygate to Radar Online. The outlet’s report didn’t paint her co-star, Dorit Kemsley, in the best light since the headline alone read, “Lisa ‘Extra Hurt’ By Longtime Friend Dorit Over Abandoned Dog.”
Like Denise, LVP had to fight off her co-stars’ suspicions, which even ended her longtime friendship with Kyle. Now, it’s no surprise that Teddi in particular had harsh words for Denise, since Brandi accused Denise of saying that Teddi is “obnoxious” because she “would do anything to be in this group [the RHOBH ladies]” in an effort to get out of the shadow of her famous dad, John Mellencamp.
