Teddi Mellencamp called out Lisa Vanderpump for spreading the gossip about Dorit Kemsley’s Vanderpump Dogs adoption gone wrong! During Monday’s episode, Teddi presented Lisa with text messages that claimed the restaurateur encouraged her employees to bring up the puppy drama with her castmates.
Lisa, 58, called Teddi, 37, over to her room on the March 5 episode of RHOBH. When Teddi arrived she asked Lisa, “Am I here for an apology?” The Vanderpump Rules star allegedly got Teddi involved as a pawn in the feud between her and Dorit, 42.
Lisa claimed all she ever wanted to do was “shut it down,” after the drama escalated.
Teddi then pulled out her phone and revealed her texts with Vanderpump Dogs employee John Blizzard. She asked John, “Didn’t Lisa want you to tell me?” He replied “YES.”
After she exposed the texts, Teddi slammed Lisa, “You are much smarter than you lead on. You are not confused in this situation, and I'm not gonna be your pawn to get at Dorit.”
As RHOBH fans know, Dorit adopted a puppy named Lucy from Vanderpump Dogs but then gave the animal away because it allegedly bit her husband and kids. The new owner then also got rid of Lucy and handed her to a shelter. The shelter discovered it was microchipped and notified Vanderpump Dogs.
Lisa slammed Dorit in the season premiere and said, “It’s not good for us for a shelter to be calling us saying, ‘We’ve got a Vanderpump Dog down here.’” She then revealed her puppy foundation has a strict penalty for situations like this.
