Denise Richards is seeing Teddi Mellencamp‘s diss and raising her a dad. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star’s father is going to bat for his daughter amid accusations that she’s lying about her alleged affair with alum Brandi Glanville. Days after Teddi Mellencamp’s father, singer John Mellencamp, took a jab at Denise, the “Wild Things” actress showed that he’s not the only father fiercely defending their daughter. The 49-year-old star shared a sweet throwback posted by her pops, Irving Richards, who shot down rumors that she’s the type of person who would lie.
Sharing the black and white wild west photo, Denise Richards’ dad declared he was proud of his daughter for how she’s handled the drama with her fellow “Housewives.” This season, fans have watched Denise Richards take it from every angle. The latest issue is Brandi Glanville’s accusation that the “RHOBH” star hooked up with her multiple times behind her husband Aaron Phypers‘ back.
In the latest episode, Brandi Glanville confided in Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp about the alleged affair and warned them to be careful around Denise Richards because “she’s not who she pretends to be.”

Admitting that he’s been keeping up with the “RHOBH” drama this season, Denise Richards’ dad said he’s proud of how his daughter has handled herself against her co-stars and the rumored scandal.
“After watching a few RHOBH episodes I think we did a damn good job,” he added. “Stay strong, push forward, don’t live in fear. Life is short.” Denise Richards reposted the photo and sweet message while thanking her dad for his support.
“My dad posted this❤️.. love you Pa. thank you??,” she captioned the snap. “RHOBH” fans will watch even more drama unfold on Wednesday’s episode where the girls confront Denise Richards over the Brandi Glanville affair rumors during their all-girls trip to Rome.
