Andy Cohen is setting the record straight on Teddi Mellencamp’s firing from ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’
Earlier this week, Teddi confirmed reports that she was fired from the show after three seasons.
Her firing comes amid online chatter about her All In accountability program.
Andy Cohen took to his SiriusXM radio show to make it clear that those rumors had nothing to do with her exit and ultimately he would’ve preferred for her to address them on-camera next season — but her firing wasn’t his decision.
“Now there’s a whole controversy online about her business,” Andy elaborated. “I do want to say, people are speculating that the online chatter about her business led to her dismissal. I just want to say, because I think it’s important, that one had absolutely nothing to do with the other.”
Andy also praised the way Teddi came clean about being fired and didn’t attempt a ‘BS’ story.
“I thought [it] was one of the most, no BS I’m leaving announcements on record,” he said. “That was really good.”
In an Instagram video confirming her departure, Teddi explained that she was indeed fired.
“I could give you the standard response of, ‘Oh, we both came to the decision that it would be best,’ I’m not gonna do that, that’s not who I am,” she said.
Are you sad to see Teddi go?
