"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Teddi Mellencamp is hitting back at trolls for leaving hateful and vile comments on her Instagram.
On Aug. 13, the reality TV star noted that she had to disable comments from a previous post after people wished death upon her and her family.
"Hey guys, I just wanted to record a quick message here for a second. So I'm sure some of you've noticed that I had to delete commenting off my last post, and there's something I wanted to say about that," she said in a makeup-free video. "I have always loved doing 'Real Housewives' – the good, the bad and the ugly – because I know it's an escape for so many people watching. I know when I watch 'Potomac,' I am laughing, I am loving it, I am picking my favorites — all of those things that you're supposed to do on these television shows."
She continued, "But what's happening right now is taking it to the next level. I had so many comments on my last post saying they wish I was dead, wishing harmful things on my children, and that's really where like enough is enough. You guys tune in for drama, then enjoy the drama, but coming after people you do not know and wishing they die has gotta stop."
Teddi's comments came after a fiery episode in which the "Housewives" vacationed in Rome and questioned Denise Richards about her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville. Prior to the episode, Teddi had teased on Instagram that it was a "good one."
After the episode aired and she saw her social media account, she was less enthusiastic.
"You don't always have to agree with me. You don't even have to like me but wishing someone would die is taking it to the next level," she wrote on Instagram, essentially echoing what she said in the adjacent video. "Please watch the show. Enjoy it. It's entertainment and our lives can be crazy! Pick your faves and your villains, laugh, cry, relate etc but wishing death on another human is just wrong on so many levels. I hope those that follow me or those that just come on to troll can understand and respect that this needs to stop."
