On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 2, Teddi Jo Mellencamp learned the hard way that not all of her cast members were going to be welcoming her into the group with open arms.
We get it, it’s difficult being joining a new clique of friends, but Teddi’s nerves are getting the best of her, and she’s not exactly showing herself in the best light thus far.
When the ladies wanted to gamble, she did not seem impressed by it, and it certainly makes one wonder why she agreed to join the show if she was not prepared to take part in all the activities.
Maybe she’s been living under a rock, or she just needed a quick buck and signed up without a second thought, but we’re not seeing the real Teddi, and it seems like it’s going to take time for that to shine on through.
The sad thing is, viewers make decisions early on about new cast additions, and Teddi runs the risk falling into the sidelines. You know something’s wrong when Adrienne Maloof returned for two scenes and had a more prominent presence than Teddi.
The ladies were still in Las Vegas, and it became apparent that Erika is always going to be a tough cookie to crumble. Her icy demeanor has landed her in hot water with the ladies in the past.
For the most part, she changed things up and reacted well to Lisa Vanderpump telling her that friendship is a two-way street, but she was not that nice to Teddi in the closing moments of the episode.
Teddi was trying to find out some information about Erika because she wanted to get to know her, but in true Erika fashion, she iced her out and treated her like crap.
This did pave the way for Erika to drop a stunning revelation on the ladies: She met her father for the first time when she was 18 years old.
“It was like meeting a stranger. I shook his hand,” she said, and the others quickly speculated that it could be the cause of her not letting people into her life.
“I don’t have this relationship, but I have a lot of other fabulous relationships,” Erika said to the camera.
Elsewhere, Dorit and Lisa Rinna finally had it out over all the comments they made about one another. It was a very one-sided debate, and Rinna was in the hot seat.
Dorit denied that PK made several comments about Rinna, and said that it was all Rinna’s doing. Thankfully, Bravo was on tap with flashbacks of PK saying all of the horrid stuff about the soap star.
Rinna ultimately had to be the bigger person and take all the blame.
“I don’t want to feel like I am in danger,” Dorit said at the start of the slow Ferris wheel ride. “Your words and your actions are so low that they can really affect people’s lives.”
Ultimately, the warring women put the past behind them and decided it was time to stop fighting.
But then Kyle Richards had to ruin all of it by telling Lisa R about Harry telling her that Kim needed to be kicked out of the group for good.
Lisa already knew about it, and the ladies shrugged it off. Could this be the season of the women playing nice with one another?
The show is at its best when they are fighting, so we hope not!
