Andy Cohen says Teddi Mellencamp wasn’t fired because of the allegations by her former clients against her fitness company.

The Bravo exec spoke on his Sirius XM radio show about Teddi’s contract not being renewed for a fourth season. Andy said, “Now there’s a whole controversy online about her business. I do want to say, people are speculating that the online chatter about her business led to her dismissal. I just want to say, because I think it’s important, that one had absolutely nothing to do with the other.”

Andy said he would have liked to see Teddi address the scandal on next season, but it was out of his control. He defended her fitness program, All In By Teddi, saying he’s only heard good things. He said, “I remember them saying they went through the All In program and they did not have bad things to say about it. I think they said they were hungry, but he said that that program taught him how to order food in restaurants.”

The problem is many former clients accuse Teddi of promoting a dangerous diet plan. Clients claimed Teddi’s program had them eating only 500 calories a day.

Many fans believed the growing scandal over Teddi’s business caused Bravo to ax her from the show. Andy seems to be shutting down that talk. He spoke highly of Teddi’s departure announcement on social media. He said, ““I thought it was one of the most no-BS ‘I’m leaving’ announcements on record. That was really good. I have to say, everyone has just been through it. The year, like it’s not many people for whom this year has been good for. She had some major health stuff with her kids.”

The reality star told fans, “I don’t want to BORE you, but I figured I could give you a little update on what’s going on. I recently found out that my contract as a Housewives is not being renewed.

She continued, “of course, I could give you the standard response of “we both came to the decision that it would be best”, Nah, I’m not going to do that. That’s not who I am. Of course, when I got the news, I was sad. It feels like a breakup almost because you develop such strong relationships with the cast and crew. You get to do incredible things that you probably never get to experience without the show.”
