Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave got emotional during the May 21 episode of the hit reality show. The Bravo star has been debating taking her All In By Teddi company public to spend more time with her children.
Teddi and her husband, Edwin Arroyave, have two young children. Edwin consoled Teddi as she cried with guilt over her fears that her children will resent her for working so much. Teddi began as an accountability coach and is now CEO of her own team of accountability coaches.
Fellow Bravo star Kate Chastain took to Twitter while the episode of RHOBH aired to throw shade at Teddi’s job. Kate is the chief stewardess of the charter yacht on Below Deck.
Kate tweeted, “I’m still not really sure what exactly an ‘accountability coach’ does, but I’m pretty certain it doesn’t require more time away one’s children than any other job the millions of working mothers have. #RHOBH.”
Teddi has been open about her struggles of balancing her career and her responsibilities as a mother and wife. Teddi responded that millions of working moms struggle with the guilt. She went on to defend herself by saying she “Never said my job and time was any more important or different. But if judging my feelings as a mother makes you happy go off I guess.”
And I’m sure the millions of working moms struggle with mom guilt at some point. Never said my job and time was any more important or different. But if judging my feelings as a mother makes you happy go off I guess. https://t.co/JFhvZnga7H

RHOBH costar Kyle Richards quickly jumped in to defend her friend. Kyle is a mother of five and owns several clothing stores. Several of the stores were recently moved to new locations. Kyle knows about balancing her work and her children.
Not sure if you’re a Mom or not but we all deal with Mom guilt at times when working. Not only does Teddi work her ass off helping people and building her business but also being away from the kids when filming is hard sometimes. There are multiple jobs here https://t.co/zQsHMROmhP

Kyle tweeted, “Not sure if you’re a Mom or not but we all deal with Mom guilt at times when working,” the mother of four wrote to Kate. “Not only does Teddi work her ass off helping people and building her business but also being away from the kids when filming is hard sometimes. There are multiple jobs here.”
Teddi of Real Housewives of Beverly HillsSkeptical of Lie Detector Test
Viewers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know that Lisa Vanderpump has stopped speaking to or filming with the rest of the cast after they accused her of leaking the Puppygate story to the gossip sites. During Tuesday’s episode, Lisa took a lie detector test, a decision widely criticized by her costars. Teddi was particularly vocal about the veracity test.
Kate chimed in on Teddi’s criticism. She tweeted, “Omg so basically now even lie detector tests need accountability training #RHOBH.”

The brief Twitter feud ended cordially with Kate going to eat pistachio gelato and Teddi going to fold towels.
