Teddi Mellencamp, former star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” recently shared her unfiltered thoughts on Tamra Judge’s feud with fellow Bravo podcaster Teresa Giudice on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast. Mellencamp explained that Giudice had been poking Judge, and it takes a lot to get her activated. The feud began after Judge invited “RHONJ” alum Caroline Manzo as a guest on “Two Ts in a Pod,” despite Manzo being at odds with Judge’s friend Brandi Glanville. Giudice criticized Judge for this move and called her a “bad friend.”
Mellencamp also responded to Giudice’s previous accusation that Judge and Mellencamp invited her and co-host Melissa Pfeister on “Two Ts in a Pod” to gain more listeners. Mellencamp found the assertion laughable, as her podcast regularly tops charts and consistently surpasses Giudice and Pfeister’s “Namaste B$tches.” She challenged Giudice to beat them in downloads just once before throwing shade.
Mellencamp also talked about her advocacy for skin cancer awareness as the new face of the Melanoma Research Foundation’s #GetNaked campaign. She shared that she was diagnosed with Stage 2 melanoma in October 2022, but successfully underwent surgery to remove 11 melanomas and three lymph nodes from her back. Mellencamp urged fans to stay in the shade or wear SPF to prevent skin cancer, which claims nearly 8,000 lives in the U.S. each year.
Mellencamp initially felt negative and sad upon receiving her diagnosis but quickly turned to advocacy. She hopes to spread awareness and encourage people to take care of their skin.
