“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Teddi Mellencamp says she is receiving death threats after confronting her co-star Denise Richards and the trolls are even coming after her children. The 39-year-old Bravo personality addressed the scary comments she’s been getting from followers who “wish I was dead.” Taking to her Instagram on Thursday, August 13, one day after the group’s heated conversation with Denise about Brandi Glanville‘s affair allegations, John Mellencamp‘s daughter spoke out against the hate she’s collecting and said it has gone too far.
Wearing zero makeup while in her car, Teddi Mellencamp turned the camera on herself and revealed that she had to start deleting comments on her last post because haters were taking their comments “to the next level.”
Trying to find common ground with those who follow her, the “RHOBH” star said that she too finds reality TV an escape. “I have always loved doing Real Housewives – the good, the bad and the ugly – because I know it’s an escape for so many people watching,” she said. “I know when I watch Potomac, I am laughing, I am loving it, I am picking my favorites, all of those things that you’re supposed to do on these television shows.”
Teddi Mellencamp made it clear: she’s had enough after trolls came for her three children. “But what’s happening right now is taking it to the next level. I had so many comments on my last post saying they wish I was dead, wishing harmful things on my children and that’s really where like enough is enough,” she continued.
“You guys tune in for drama, then enjoy the drama, but coming after people you do not know and wishing they die has gotta stop,” Teddi added. She captioned the video by writing, “You don’t always have to agree with me. You don’t even have to like me but wishing someone would die is taking it to the next level.”
Teddi Mellencamp concluded her stern plea by stating in the caption, “Please watch the show. Enjoy it. It’s entertainment and our lives can be crazy! Pick your faves and your villains, laugh, cry, relate etc but wishing death on another human is just wrong on so many levels. I hope those that follow me or those that just come on to troll can understand and respect that this needs to stop.”
Her bestie Kyle Richards showed Teddi Mellencamp some love by commenting with a single red heart emoji. “RHOBH” airs on Bravo every Wednesday at 8/9 central.
