TEDDI Mellencamp Arroyave rose to prominence for her stints on reality television.
In addition to appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Celebrity Big Brother, Teddi is also the daughter of rock music singer John Mellencamp.
Who is Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave?
Born on July 1, 1981, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is an American TV personality from Bloomington, Indiana.
Teddi is John Mellencamp’s first of two daughters from his second wife Victoria Granucci and is the second born of his five children.

From 2017 to 2020, she was a main cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
For three seasons of the series, she was one of the Bravo housewives along with Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Jayne, and Dorit Kemsley.
In an Instagram post from September 22, 2020, Teddi revealed Bravo decided to fire her from the franchise.
The reality star told her followers: “I recently found out my contract as a Housewife is not being renewed.
“I could give you the standard response of, ‘Oh, we both came to the decision that it would be best…’ Nah, I’m not gonna do that, that’s not who I am.”
She added: “Of course when I got the news, I was sad. It feels like a breakup almost.”
Besides appearing on RHOBH, Mellencamp hosts a podcast with fellow Real Housewives alum, Tamra Judge.
On an October 1, 2020 episode of Mellencamp’s and Judge’s Two T’s in a Pod, the former real housewife discussed her firing.
Mellencamp said: “The craziest part about it was, I think it was last Monday, I woke up, I was on the Peloton, and my non-television show girlfriends started texting me … it’s all over the Daily Mail that you’re no longer a housewife.
“I filmed so many amazing things that were never shown on the show…it should have been the writing on the wall.”
The TV personality went on to say: “All the things that make me a likable, redeeming human being were not shown on the season.”
Aside from RHOBH, Teddi also appeared on the third US season of Celebrity Big Brother.
She was the first contestant to be eliminated from the competition program.
