Teddi Mellencamp, 39, weighed in on Denise’s shocking departure on September 10, during an Instagram Q&A session with fans.
Responding to a question asking if she’s happy about Denise Richards, 49, departure from the show, Teddi said, “not surprised. I don’t know when and why the decision was made.”
She added, “but anytime one person wants to be the star of the show and control how they are portrayed when it’s about showing the truth as an ensemble it doesn’t end well.”
Teddi continued, “I wish her the best and hope she is thriving and happy. I also hope she stops referring herself in the third person. But I guess I have to let that go.”
While Denise Richards has yet to comment on the news of her departure, her rep confirmed that she isn’t returning to the show next season.
This news comes following a difficult season that focused on the scandal surrounding the 49-year old actress’ alleged steamy love affair with Brandi Glanville.
During the Q&A, Teddi Mellencamp also revealed that she’s a huge fan of the Real Housewives of Potomac.
“I did not but now I watch Potomac and am obsessed,” she responded to a fan who asked if she watched the show prior to joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She added, “I watch that one religiously. Any of the other franchises I watch when I can. With Cruz as our roommate, it limits the amount of time I have to watch tv.”
When asked which of the Potomac ladies are her favorites, Teddi said, “I cannot answer this. It’s too hard. I love Gizelle Bryant because she gets the job done. Robyn Dixon because I feel she’s a good friend. Monique Samuels because she doesn’t hold back. Ashley Darby for always showing up the newborn and all.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part 3 airs on Wednesday, at 9 pm, ET, on Bravo.
