ICYMI: ‘RHOBH’ Exit Due to “Disordered Eating?’
Last month there was a major change to “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” line-up when cast member Teddi Mellencamp, daughter of rock legend John Mellencamp, was let go from the Bravo TV series.
Mellencamp took to her Instagram to release a statement about the departure via video: “This feels like a breakup.” In the caption, she thanked Bravo, producer/host Andy Cohen and Evolution USA “and all of the amazing women for the support (and the shade) for the past three years.”
Some fans of “RHOBH” have speculated that her removal from the show may have something to do with the wellness trainer/certified nutritionist’s lifestyle brand. Cohen has gone on the record to say that All in By Teddi was not the reason for Mellencamp’s leave.
Recent controversy surrounded All in By Teddi, Mellencamp’s “accountability” program. Among the allegations are the pricey programs (upwards of $600) and a food plan that some have estimated between 500-700 calories. Many have compared the food plan in Mellencamp’s program to “disordered eating.” Mellencamp has denied the allegations.— Erin Edmonds
