It was an east coast/west coast "Real Housewives" mashup as “Extra’s” special correspondent and “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Melissa Gorga interviewed “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Teddi Mellencamp at the “Extra” studio at Levi’s Times Square.
Though it’s freezing cold, Teddi loved being back on the east coast, saying, “I’m like, ‘Is that snow?’” Melissa smiled, asking, “Wait, have you ever seen snow?” Teddi said, “It's been a while, and I'm a total wimp now.”
Teddi’s father, John Mellencamp, is engaged to actress Meg Ryan, but Teddi isn’t helping with the wedding planning. She explained, “They’re not asking me for help. They’re super private and I have to remember that not everyone is like me where my life is being showcased on television.”
John does watch Teddi on TV and texts her “in all caps like, ‘CALL ME.’” Melissa pointed out, “That means he saw something he doesn't like.” Teddi continued, “Well that's what I think, but really he just has the caps lock on and doesn't know how to turn it off… and then I call, and I thought he was going to be irritated by something, and he goes, 'Why are you wearing all these stupid hats?' And I’m like, 'Some days I don’t want to do my hair, dad.'”
The 37-year-old accountability coach and mother of two is back on “RHOBH” for her second season. Caught up in the drama surrounding her friend Lisa Vanderpump’s war with Dorit over a dog adoption gone wrong, she admitted, “I'm not clean in everything… I take ownership. I was petty.”
