When the Real Housewives cast members go through hardship, trauma, and loss, Bravo knows not to turn the cameras away.
As a result, many of the cast members’ most difficult times have been captured on the show. They’ve shared their truths about divorces, deaths, addictions, and other intense difficulties that they’ve faced over the years. Now, another star is speaking out about a recent death in her family.
Perhaps equally well known for her famous father as she is for her slot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Teddi Mellencamp has been adding her own flair to the show from the moment she was added to the cast. More recently, she shared that she is expecting her third child with her husband Edward Arroyave!
Since Teddi is also an accountability coach who has shown off her incredible weight loss across social media, she was quick to share tips about the process.
“Well, the biggest thing for me has been that I can stay active,” Teddi revealed in a recent interview with Hollywood Life. “Because the other pregnancies, I wasn’t active when I started in the right way and I wasn’t eating the right things either. And I ended up on bed rest and I wasn’t able to do what I had hoped that I could do during a pregnancy. And this one I started healthy. I started being active. So the doctor was like, ‘You can keep it up.’ So really my fitness has slowed down, but I’ve been able to continue staying active.”
Teddi is clearly more confident across social media, as she’s been posting numerous photos of her growing baby bump. She explained that she’s happy she can share more photos this time around.
“I share so much because I think when I was pregnant, I didn’t always share how I was feeling the last time and I feel like I missed out on some things,” Teddi said in the interview. “Because I felt like I… It’s crazy, I didn’t want to be vulnerable. And I think that opening up and sharing how you’re feeling is a great way for other moms to kind of understand that they’re not alone.” She added, “I think I haven’t really had a chance to feel the major pregnancy symptoms that I did before because we’ve been hitting the ground running. We’ve been filming the season, I’ve got my business, I’ve got the other kids. So it’s just getting it done.”
Although Teddi’s pregnancy seems to be going exceptionally well, she recently opened up about a tragedy in her family.
