Teddi Mellencamp Addresses Kyle Richards’ Split

When Teddi Mellencamp first joined RHOBH, she clicked with Dorit Kemsley until she was late for drinks. Then, she gravitated to Lisa Vanderpump over their love of horses. Yet, it was Kyle Richards who still owned her own clothing store and was able to help Teddi with fashion. They became so close, in fact, some of the cast questioned it. However, Kyle is the kind that when she likes you, she grabs hold. Even after Teddi exited, they traveled together and are still quite good friends. On July 3rd, it came out that Kyle and her husband, Mauricio Umansky had split after nearly 30 years together.

Though they denied it, they also claimed they had the toughest year of their marriage and were working on it privately. Additionally, there were affair allegations on both sides.

It looked like she might be having her own rendezvous with country singer, Morgan Wade. She claims that they are great friends but no one knows.

Now, Teddi Mellencamp is opening up on her podcast, Two T’s In A Pod. A snippet from it was shared on Twitter. Teddi addressed that many fans were asking about the split between Kyle and Mauricio. However, Teddi explained that along with her co-host Tamra Judge, iHeart Radio, and the producers, this is her boundary. Therefore, she will not cross it and talk about their private situation. She further added that Kyle’s family is like hers and this is not like talking about people she just watches on television and does not know.
