Teddi Mellencamp says she and Lisa Vanderpump have finally settled their feud – years after the infamous ‘Puppygate’ scandal.
“We had a nice conversation. We were respectful to each other,” the reality star said on Tuesday’s episode of her “Two Ts in a Pod” podcast with Tamra Judge.
“I haven’t spoken to [Lisa] in years. The last time we had a conversation wasn’t good.
Mellencamp, 40, explained that she reconciled with Vanderpump, 61, at an afterparty for the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The party took place at TomTom’s in West Hollywood, Calif., including Vanderpump is co-owned with Ken Todd, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz.
The former ‘RHOBH’ star said after walking in, she asked Vanderpump’s husband if he thought it would be a good idea to ‘try to clear the air’ – to which he told her. given the green light.
“In the end, we just got through it,” Mellencamp recalled. “It was mostly, like, all the things that we probably would have said to each other in the meeting, if we had the meeting.”
Mellencamp added that while she and Vanderpump are “healed” after their nearly 40-minute conversation, she doesn’t think they’ll be having lunch together anytime soon.
As Page Six previously reported, “Puppygate” began in 2019 when co-star Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog named Lucy Lucy Apple Juicy from Vanderpump’s dog rescue center. Kemsley, 45, ended up giving the pup to another family, saying at the time that he was unsuitable for his family.
Unfortunately, this family also abandoned the dog and placed her in a killing shelter, which alerted Vanderpump Dogs. The situation prompted Vanderpump to confront Kemsley directly about the poor pooch.
Shortly after the incident, Kemsley’s story was leaked to the press by an unnamed source, whom many of the “RHOBH” cast members believed to be Vanderpump.
However, the restaurateur — who abruptly left “RHOBH” midway through Season 9 amid the drama — vehemently denied that claim for years.
Vanderpump has yet to respond to Mellencamp’s version of the story.
