Fresh off the ending of the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reports are coming in from sources that fitness guru and daughter to John Cougar Mellencamp, Teddi Mellencamp, is getting the heave-ho from Bravo.
According to The Daily Mail, Teddi was fired from RHOBH for an eleventh season. The three-season housewife has not been particularly loved by fans, often deemed as “boring,” but things really took a turn when former clients of her “All In By Teddi” accountability program exposed her problematic tendencies.
Teddi’s “All In by Teddi” program has some problematic guidelines.
Besides the show, Teddi’s main bread and butter is her diet program called All In By Teddi, in which she “empowers” women to lose weight and exercise. Things took a turn for Teddi when social media influencer, Emily Gellis, began to post anonymous screenshots from former clients of Teddi, writing to her to talk about their negative experiences with the diet.
Many wrote Emily explaining that the "All In" plan made them feel extremely unhealthy and teetered on disordered eating. She also obtained videos that Teddi had sent her clients, allegedly instructing them only to eat a small portion of oatmeal for breakfast, 1/2 cup of fruit, 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice with vegetables for lunch, half an avocado for a snack, and “low sodium” soup for dinner.
Along with the strict diet plan, she also wanted her clients to engage in an hour of cardio exercise each day.
For just two weeks of coaching, a client pays $599. Also important to note: none of the coaches who are a part of Teddi’s program have any fitness or health certifications, according to the website.
Teddi recently denied rumors that she was leaving the show.
Rumors of Teddi’s departure started swirling on social media before any “confirmed” sources came forward. Fans even launched a petition to get her off the show due to her being a “bully.”
Fans also blamed Teddi for being the reason fan-favorite Denise Richards left the show after just two seasons.
This is also not the first time there have been rumors that Teddi was leaving RHOBH. On her Instagram story on September 8, 2020, Teddi shared that she would tell her fans if she was, in fact, actually fired.
She wrote, “For those of you messaging me about some rumor posted yesterday re: my return to #RHOBH — zero truth to it so need to message me worried about it or hating on me because of it. I will always be authentic and honest when things occur.”
As for the Daily Mail article confirming Teddi’s departure, Teddi has not commented on the alleged firing.
Fans have mixed feelings about Teddi’s alleged firing.
While some fans are pleased to see Teddi may be exiting The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there are others who do not understand the hate she has received. One fan tweeted, “Everyone's hatred towards Teddi Mellencamp is perplexing. I love how she riles you all up. Rent free in your heads. Now accountability that!”
Other fans are pleased with the news, claiming that someone who allegedly promotes eating disorders should not have such a large platform.
One fan wrote, “Glad to see her go. I just wish they could have addressed her MLM starvation scheme this season. Give her an actual storyline.”
