Get To Know RHOBH’s Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

On the season eight premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills we met the newest addition to the cast, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and I have to say I’m very intrigued by her already.

So, let’s get to know Teddi. Here are some facts about the new Beverly Hills Housewife.

She’s John Mellencamp’s daughter
Teddi was raised in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, by the famous recording artist and her mother, Victoria Granucci. But that doesn’t mean she liked her father’s music… she admittedly was not a fan when she was younger! As a kid, she spent her time as a competitive equestrian, beginning at age 4.

Teddi is married to Edwin Arroyave
Teddi currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband Edwin, who is the founder of Skyline Security Management, Inc.

She’s a mother – and a stepmother
Teddi and Edwin have two children, Slate, 5, and Cruz, 3. Additionally, she’s a stepmother to Isabella, Edwin’s daughter from a previous marriage.

She’s very open with her struggle with weight.
On her website, Teddi revealed that she’s always struggled with gaining and losing weight. “At my heaviest, I felt lonely, sad and angry. At my smallest, I felt panicked, stressed and worried that I would gain the weight back. I very rarely felt great in my own skin,” she wrote. This inspired her to launch her own company.

She’s more than a housewife
Teddi created LA Workout Junkie, a program to help others by offering fitness tips and ultimately, assisting people in discovering the best versions of themselves. She is now an accountability coach.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Time will tell with this one. She seems down to earth. The dress she had on for the first Vegas night? I’ve never seen one that short. How the heck do you sit down in something like that?

    • Rain

      That dress was atrocious and yes she’s down to earth . Somebody needs to adopt her fashion wise

  • Maria Skinner

    Teddi, hope you don’t put up with any crap specially from Rina.

  • Amanda Bates Barnette

    I think Teddi has a good vibe about herself. Really hope she’s not the punching bag of the season.

    She looks fresh…unlike the other women who look like the pastry sold at Starbucks

      Well, except for that hair. Too much. My husband said it looked like a 6×8 rug on her head.

      • Frank Van Der Heijden

        Maybe her husband likes the hair…we do not know

    So far I like Teddi! She seems down to earth.

    I don’t know that I could love Teddi as much as Vanderpump seems to, but I’m a close second.
