The newbie has spoken! “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Sutton Stracke has opened up about the abrupt firing of her co-star Teddi Mellencamp. Speaking out about the shocking news just days after Bravo revealed their decision not to renew Teddi’s contract, the fashion queen sat down with Derek Zagami on his show “RealiTea With Derek Z” to dish the deets.
Looking fabulous in a light pink tee with her blonde hair freely flowing, Sutton Stracke addressed Teddi no longer being a “housewife.”
The star, who joined “RHOBH” this past season and once said she thought Teddi Mellencamp would be “boring,” spilled the tea. When asked how she felt about Teddi being axed as a “housewife,” Sutton Stracke said the group had a heavy heart over Bravo’s decision. “Well, I think we were all said,” she told Derek.
Adding that “it’s been really fun getting to know Teddi,” Sutton Stracke revealed that she has not reached out to her former co-star about the news.
“I think that we just kind of want to let her have some time,” she stated. Despite giving Teddi Mellencamp space to cope with being fired, Sutton Stracke ensured fans that the next chapter for Teddi will be sweet.
“I know she’s so busy with that little sweet muffin, Dove. I know Teddi is a fighter, literally. I boxed her. So I know that she is a fighter and she’s going to come on top. She’s going to do something great,” Sutton Stracke said before wishing her well.
As The Blast reported, Teddi Mellencamp took to her social media to reveal that her “RHOBH” contract was not renewed for next season amid controvery surrounding her “All In” weight loss program. The star has been accused of providing a service that “starves” paying clients and allegedly sends “abusive” text messages if they step out of line with their diet and exercise.
Revealing she was “sad” over the news about “RHOBH,” Teddi Mellencamp spoke up about her firing and didn’t sugarcoat it.
“Of course, I could give you the standard response of ‘Oh we both came to the decision that it would be best,’ but nah, I’m not going to do that. It’s not me,” she stated on video. Revealing she was “sad” when she first found out, Teddi Mellencamp is deciding to focus on the positive.
“I am really looking forward to the future and being able to focus on my family, my friends, All In,” she added. Teddi Mellencamp was on the cast for three seasons.
