Teddi Mellencamp dished that backstage drama went down at the MTV Movie & TV Awards last week, between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars, Lisa Rinna and Kathy Hilton. Teddi spilled the tea during the June 7 episode of the podcast she hosts with Tamra Judge, “Two Ts in a Pod.” 

Lisa and Kathy were both accused of teaming up with an alleged marketing manager to smear the other in the press. Teddi offered listeners her opinion on the controversy after observing the duo at the awards show. 

“The Beverly Hills cast was a little split up,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum said. “Not all of them sat down prior to presenting.”

Teddi shared that the ladies sat down at a table with Crystal Kung-Minkoff and her husband, Rob, after completing their on-stage obligations.  

“Rinna sits down at that table. She’s told by her PR person or whomever it is, ’Sit there.’ [Next] I see Erika start to walk to the same spot and then Kathy came and sat down next to Rinna,” Teddi revealed.

Teddi explained that things then took a turn.

Rinna got up and left. Then Kathy walks over to Paris Hilton’s table, where [Bethenny Frankel] is, and then proceeds to use a hand fan the entire awards,” Teddi explained.

A since-deleted Instagram post initially seemed to confirm that the PR pro, Patrick Somers, was in cahoots with Kathy to drag Rinna’s name through the mud. 

“My latest assignment was executed against Lisa Rinna. I never reveal a clients [sic] personal information per my NDA agreement,” Patrick wrote. “My latest marketing campaign was to draw attention away from my client … That’s exactly what I did. All narratives associated with my latest campaign are false. I was compensated $27,527.72 for my work.”

He added—“And frankly I’ve never met Lisa Rinna.”

Patrick later alleged that he was in cahoots with Rinna to manufacture a future RHOBH storyline.

“What was put in front of you was all manufactured in hopes of pushing [Rinna’s] storyline for next season,” Somers alleged in a video posted on Instagram last week, in response to rumors claiming that Kathy had hired him to harass Rinna on social media. 

“It’s not true. Kathy Hilton did not have any involvement,” Somers stated, adding— “It was strictly me and Lisa Rinna concocting this plan. It just went south really fast and so did our friendship. We’re no longer friends.”

“I truly believe neither of these women know this person,” Teddi said about the situation.

Teddi revealed that she and Tamra sat at a table with RHONY alum, Dorinda Medley, Dorinda’s niece, Taylor Armstrong, and the RHOBH alum’s husband, John Bluher.

“And of course the table next to us is Teresa Giudice, Luis Ruelas, Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga, and Kristin Cavallari. She looked beautiful and she’s so funny. We loved chatting with her… and the table next to that was Garcelle Beauvais, her two sons, Sheree Zampino, and then coming in later was Sutton [Stracke] and her daughter,” Teddi said.

“She wasn’t very friendly to me. Was that because of you? She’s friendly to me on social media,” Tamra asked. 

Erika Jayne

Teddi said that she believed that Sutton was chilly toward them because she had accused her of calling Erika Jayne “white trash” in a previous podcast.

“She wasn’t very friendly to me either. My guess is she’s annoyed about the, there was all the clickbait about her calling Erika and I, saying [we’re] white trash’ where they didn’t air it… She said to us, while we were filming, ‘I didn’t come to those white trash towns,’ and then they [took] it out of context.”

Sutton Stracke

Teddi dished that Sutton didn’t seem impressed by the production, adding that she had a lot of fun with Garcelle.

“[Sutton] was kind of making funny faces about the music being played because of her daughter and I’m like, ‘You know what you’re coming to. Of course, they’re gonna play this music.’ We [danced] the whole time but she was just kind of making these faces. But you know who I was dancing and having a nice time with? Garcelle,” Teddi revealed.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8 pm, ET, on Bravo.
