The latest lady on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" is a workout junkie… literally!
As filming of the eighth season of the Beverly Hills installment of the series is underway, information about the newest member of the cast has been revealed. Teddi Jo Mellencamp — yes, as in John Cougar Mellencamp's daughter — will be joining the crew this season.https://www.instagram.com/p/BRUqFwRlueO
Though it's not known if she will be a full-time cast member, or just a drop-in like we saw with Eden Sassoon last season, Teddi has recently been spotted filming with cast regulars.
As evidenced by her Instagram handle @laworkoutjunkie, Teddi has a passion for fitness. Her bio reads "Accountability coach and fitmom addicted to sweat and laughter. Writer of honest sarcastic reviews for anything health/fitness" and links to her website, LA Workout Junkie, which explains why she's a health nut. On the site Teddi writes, "After struggling to lose 80+ pounds after having my son, I am on a mission to get into the best shape of my life!"https://www.instagram.com/p/BOr7T1Wgv51
From the looks of the things, Teddi has done just that! Her social media shows off plenty of inspirational before and after photos, motivational fitness quotes, and snaps of the mother of two post-workout.https://www.instagram.com/p/BHKlN9zBlOw
Also popping up often on her Instagram? Teddi's husband Edwin Arroyave, with whom she shares two children, a girl and a boy, and one step-daughter.https://www.instagram.com/p/BJVsmInhX4a
Snaps of Edwin often include hashtags like "#bestfriend" and "#loveofmylife" so we're certain to see aspects of her happy marriage on the small screen.https://www.instagram.com/p/BJdVJeLBIzr
It remains to be seen who Teddi will hit it off with best? Possibly Dorit Kemsley, who also has two kids around the same age? Or maybe Lisa Vanderpump will take Teddi under her wing? We can't wait for Season 8!
