“Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” Alum Teddi Mellencamp Thinks Lisa Vanderpump Paid Raquel Leviss To Start An Affair With Tom Sandoval To Boost “Vanderpump Rules” Ratings

Teddi Mellencamp is utterly forgettable, so any time she gets a speck of attention for trying to say something provocative–like defending the neck lift she got that pretty much no one asked her to–people still need to be reminded of why she assumes anyone should care what she has to say. So for good measure: she’s John Mellencamp’s daughter, she used to be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she’s a fitness accountability coach who hates food and joy, and she was on Celebrity Big Brother only to get booted first. So since she and Lisa Vanderpump both used to be on RHOBH, she’s been dishing room temperature takes about the Vanderpump Rules Scandoval saga on her own podcast. But the other day on Melissa Gorga’s (of The Real Housewives of New Jersey) podcast, Teddi decided to go “All In” and declare that she thinks Lisa paid Raquel Leviss to creep around with Tom Sandoval in an attempt to keep the lights on at VPR. The lesson here? Let’s just stop handing out podcasts to everyone.

Page Six says Teddi and her Two T’s in a Pod co-host, The Real Housewives of Orange County’spint-sized, baptized and highly prizedTamra Judge, sat down to record a chat about Scandoval on Melissa’s On Display a few days before Lisa sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live to react to the whole damn mess happening with the VPR cast. So, Teddi saw an in and got to work poking at Lisa.

“She probably paid Raquel [Leviss] to do this,” Mellencamp, 41, suggested of the SUR server’s recently revealed affair with co-star Tom Sandoval.

After “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Judge, 55, insisted that Vanderpump only “wants the best for her cast,” her “Two T’s in a Pod” co-host retorted, “I think she wants the best for herself, as I would as well. You guys wouldn’t? You’d want your shows to tank?”

Judge pointed out that “Pump Rules” is “skyrocketing right now,” prompting Mellencamp to reply, “Which is my point, which is exactly what [Vanderpump] wants.”

Teddi also said Lisa always capes for men and predicted she’d defend Tom in her sit-down with Andy.

The fitness mogul also predicted that the “Pump Rules” boss would stick up for Sandoval — who was in an almost 10-year relationship with co-star Ariana Madix while he was secretly romancing Leviss — because she feels Vanderpump “always takes the men’s side.”

“She’s gonna say the same points that I’ve been saying, like, ‘Listen, [Sandoval and Madix] weren’t in a good place for a long time. His needs weren’t met. [Sandoval and Leviss] fell in love. They couldn’t help themselves,’” Mellencamp told host Gorga, 43, and fellow guest Tamra Judge while impersonating the English restaurateur.

Teddi was wrong, but while probably barely containing the giddy excitement that has to be bubbling beneath her hoity-toity British façade due to this ongoing lucrative, juicy shitshow, Lisa did try to put the event that’s blown the lid off of the Bravoverse into proper perspective; and likely make a veiled attempt to get people to stop leaving bad Yelp reviews for her and Tom Sandoval’s/Tom Schwartz’s restaurant, Tom Tom, so she can compensate her employees.

While Vanderpump didn’t necessarily defend Sandoval, 40, on “WWHL,” she did argue that “it’s not like [Sandoval or Leviss] murdered anyone” and pointed out that there’s “so much infidelity in the world.”

She also begged outraged fans to scale back their “vigilante justice.”

“These are people that are living their life in a public forum, which is very difficult,” she noted of the love triangle’s participants.

Condemn their actions, but don’t condemn the people, OK?” she advised. “All this aggression … it can have serious ramifications. I really mean that. I think everybody should be careful with that.”

After a few people laid into Teddi for this take, she tried to LOL it off after saying it with her whole chest on Melissa’s pod:

Anyone familiar with the Scandoval players knows that none of them are smart enough to come up with all of the fine details that keep coming into play here. I mean, Tom and Raquel have been wearing matching lightning bolt necklaces for months. MATCHING NECKLACES, OKAY?! But I wouldn’t expect Teddi to actually know how the sauce is made since her breakout RHOBH scene was just her slowly and calmly drinking water while waiting for someone who also found her forgettable and stood her up!
