Teddi Jo Mellencamp Is Joining ‘RHOBH’ Season 8 — Report
Get ready to see a new face in Beverly Hills.
Teddi Jo Mellencamp is joining the cast for the eighth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Though you may not know her, you may have heard of her father.
The 36-year-old is the daughter of music legend John Cougar Mellencamp, who’s been nominated for 13 Grammys and won one.
Teddi’s also married to Matthew Robertson but not much is known about him or what he does.
It’s unclear right now if Teddi will be a full-time Housewife or just a “Friend of the Housewives,” as Eden Sasson was last season, but E! News confirmed she will be a part of the new season.
Though she comes from music royalty, Teddi has kept out of the spotlight for most of her life.
According to her Instagram bio, she’s an accountability coach and fitmom who’s “addicted to sweat and laughter.”
She also refers to herself as a “writer of honest sarcastic reviews for anything health/fitness.”
The mother of two runs a fitness blog called LA Workout Junkie, where she talks about everything from staying fit to life as a mom and wife.
Besides her two kids, she also says she’s a “step-mom of 1” on the blog’s “About” page.
Prior to her fitness journey, Teddi was a nationally renowned equestrian, however, after having children she decided to “focus my time on motherhood, family and fitness.”
She’s now on a “mission” to stay in shape.
RHOBH fans first began to suspect there was a new cast member when Camille Grammer shared a pic of the housewives out in Las Vegas and a mysterious blonde was amongst the group.
The mystery woman was in fact Teddi.
