Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is the newest member of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Welcoming her into the family, the ever-investigative internet has dug up paperwork revealing that she was secretly married and divorced a few years ago.
While Teddi, her husband Edwin Arroyave, and their children have been in front of Bravo’s cameras a few times now, she never led on that she’s a divorcee. What else is she hiding?
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave — alongside her husband Edwin Arroyave and their kids — was introduced to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans at the start of season eight late last year (December 2017). As viewers are getting more acquainted with the 36-year-old mom-of-three, so are the gossip outlets.
According to documents discovered by Radar Online, the star was married to Matthew James Colbourne Robertson for a little over two years.
Marriage After Marriage
Robertson and John Mellencamp‘s daughter married on June 3, 2006. Two-and-a-half years later (Dec. 1, 2008), they separated, and Teddi officially filed for divorce a year later.
They didn’t have any children together from their short-lived marriage, so the split was fairly clean. Citing “irreconcilable differences,” the Beverly Hills housewife filed for divorce in California on July 29, 2009. The Los Angeles Superior Court document shows that Teddi did not request spousal support.
She also declined help for her attorney fees. On the paperwork, she checked the box that read, “There are no issues of child, spousal, or partner support or attorney fees and costs subject to determination by the court.”
Wendy Benge, Teddi’s attorney, served her ex-husband with the papers a month after the star filed. However, the divorce took months to go into effect. Though no children were involved and no assets needed to be split, Teddi wasn’t officially a free women until February 14, 2010.
Teddi and Edwin — who is raising his daughter Isabella from a previous marriage — exchanged vows in 2011, not too long after the divorce from her first marriage finalized. The founder of Skyline Security Management and Teddi have two of their own children together, Slate and Cruz.
