Teddi Mellencamp‘s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-stars are flocking to her side and showing her support after the 39-year-old revealed her five-month-old daughter, Dove, will have to undergo neurological surgery following her Lambdoid Craniosynostosis diagnosis. Taking to her social media to reveal the devastating news, Teddi Mellencamp posted a lengthy statement explaining the situation while keeping a positive outlook for her baby’s successful recovery. “RHOBH” fans left thousands of comments for the star and so did her co-stars ahead of the season’s return tomorrow.
Describing Dove’s diagnosis as a “very rare type of non-syndromic craniosynostosis [which] occurs when one of the lambdoid sutures at the back of the head fuses before birth,” Teddi Mellencamp told her followers they thought she needed “a doc band for re-shaping,” but “a CT scan showed Lambdoid Craniosynostosis.” As far as recovery goes, the Bravo personality said it’s “about a week in the hospital and a couple weeks at home,” adding that the surgery has “a very high success rate.”
Ending her post, she stated, “although we are filled with nerves as neurosurgery sounds scary, we have our faith that she will be ok.” Almost immediately after her post, Teddi Mellencamp’s “housewives” showed up for her when she needed it most. While fans have watched several of the co-stars bicker with Mellencamp this season, almost all of them left her and Dove words of support. Her bestie, and “couple’s therapy” partner, Kyle Richards, was among the first to drop Teddi Mellencamp and Dove some well wishes.

“Love you guys and baby Dove ? ❤️,” she commented. Erika Jayne left several red love heart emojis while Lisa Rinna opted for pink love hearts. The trio wasn’t the only one who gave Teddi Mellencamp words of encouragement. Her frenemy, Dorit Kemsley, thoughtfully commented with love hearts and prayer hand emojis. Newcomer Sutton Stracke wrote, “Sending prayers up. ?? Y’all got this! ???.” The only two who appear to not have commented include Denise Richards and Garcelle Beauvais. “RHOBH” fans will recall that Teddi Mellencamp faced off with Denise, accusing Richards of “mom-shaming” their group. The “housewives” return to the screen after a brief hiatus on Wednesday, July 8 on Bravo.
