Teddi Mellencamp Claims Lisa Vanderpump PAID Raquel Leviss To Cheat with Tom Sandoval For Ratings
Teddi Mellencamp alleges that Lisa Vanderpump was behind the Vanderpump Rules cheating scandal involving Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss. The controversy has been a global trending topic in the Bravo community.
Teddi Mellencamp is facing criticism from Vanderpump Rules fans following her appearance on Melissa Gorga’s On Display podcast, where she discussed the ongoing Bravo scandal, dubbed “Scandoval.”
Teddi, 41, alleged that Lisa Vanderpump orchestrated the affair between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss, suggesting that the restaurateur paid off Leviss to have the affair in an attempt to save the show.
“She probably paid Raquel to do that.” Teddi Mellencamp told host Melissa Gorga.
According to the RHOBH alum, the restaurateur will smooth over the scandal by making excuses for the affair, “She’s going to say the same point that I’ve been saying … they weren’t in a good place for a long time … They fell in love.”
Fan quickly ripped into Teddi Mellencamp over her allegations. One person wrote, “Teddi is a miserable and jealous troll.. Gawd go dafuk away.”
Another fan commented, “So LVP is a pimp now???? Teddi is trying to take Rinna’s place, and as much as I can’t stand Rinna I despise Teddi even more and would prefer the Rinna train wreck over Teddi… I mean at least Rinna was entertaining Teddi is…… well she’s nothing.”
Someone else stated, “Teddi who????She needs to go away.Shes boring & classless.No one cares what she has to say.Is Kyle paying her for ridiculous allegations against Queen LVP?”
“Teddy you is the ugliest woman that walked this earth shame on you.” Another person shared.
After a fan called Teddi a “psychopath,” the former RHOBH star addressed the criticism over her comments via Twitter, she wrote — “LOL all these people upset about my joke and yet I’m sure the were hysterically laughing at the “joke” on WWHL the other night. # hypocrisy”
As reported, Tom Sandoval’s now-ex, Ariana Madix, discovered that her boyfriend was entrenched in a “full-on affair” on March 1, after an explicit video of Raquel Leviss, 28, popped up on Sandoval’s phone. Madix dumped Sandoval, 40, when she realized that the pair had been “communicating inappropriately for months.”
Sandoval wrote on Wednesday — “Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
Leviss apologized to Madix in a statement shared with ET, revealing that she was in counseling for her “unhealthy behavioral cycle.”
Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays, at 9 p.m. ET, on Bravo.
