‘RHOBH’: Teddi Mellencamp Left Crying After Nasty Memes Poking Fun of Her Walk at NYFW
Teddi Mellencamp is best known for being part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. The Bravo star will be coming back for Season 10 and will join Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Denise Richards.
For the upcoming season, the ladies fly to New York City and participate in a fashion show that Richards collaborated in. The criticism was not great for Mellencamp who was horrified with the jokes and memes about her online.
Teddi Mellencamp expresses her feelings
Following her strut down the runway, Mellencamp was greeted with a lot of negativity on social media for the way she walked. The mother of two took to Instagram to address the terrible comments and pushed back on all the trolls.
“Last weekend I had the opportunity to walk in a fashion show during NYFW,” she wrote on the social network with photos of her on the runway. “Now, I am no model— I can barely walk down the street properly— but I walked out there feeling good and excited to support my friend. That quickly shifted when I was hit with the barrage of memes and [Instagram] comments throwing negativity at me and my walk.”
Mellencamp expressed that she is “in on most jokes” and can “make fun of herself,” but “sometimes it just gets to be too much.”
“I had a big ole cry and felt truly embarrassed— until I remembered this Brené Brown quote: ‘If you aren’t in the arena getting your a** kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback.’ And you know what, I am so damn proud of myself for having the courage to step out of my comfort zone, especially at 15-weeks pregnant in a flesh-colored bodysuit, and do my very best,” she added.
“We cannot control other’s actions, we can only control our own. So now, I’m just gonna smile brighter and keep on strutting. Shoutout to Kyle Richards for absolutely killing it with Kyle and Shahida. Such an amazing accomplishment.”
Teddi Mellencamp is pregnant
Mellencamp recently announced on social media that she is expecting her third child with husband Edwin Arroyave.
“I’m in my second trimester, 14 weeks,” Mellencamp told Us Weekly. “Everything’s good and I’m in the clear, so I’m just starting to get to that point where I’m sharing with everybody. Plus now I have a bump, so there’s not much more hiding I’ll be able to do!”
The life coach is already a mother to 6-year-old Slate and 5-year-old Cruz.
“They’ve been talking about it for a long time and actually it’s been my son who’s been like, ‘Mom, we need to have another baby,’ and I never wanted to get his hopes up. So when we told him, he was through the roof. So excited. They’re already calling it ‘their baby,’ and they have names picked for if it’s a boy or a girl — they’re ready!” she told the publication.
Mellencamp had conceived her two other children via IVF and this pregnancy came as a total surprise.
“This time we really weren’t doing anything! I was on vacation! Just having fun with my family! It was a complete surprise. I didn’t even know I was because I didn’t have a regular cycle,” she also told Us Weekly.
