Teddi Mellencamp says she and Lisa Vanderpump have settled their differences and are ‘healed-ish’ years after their infamous puppygate drama
Teddi Mellencamp revealed that the long lasting feud between her and Lisa Vanderpump has finally been settled.
Speaking with Tamra Judge, 54, on her podcast, Two Ts in a Pod, on Tuesday, Mellencamp, 40, shared that she and Lisa, 61, talked things out at an afterparty for the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
‘We did have a nice conversation. We were respectful to one another, I haven’t talked to [Lisa] in years. The last time that we had any conversation was not good,’ the reality TV star shared, adding that the two are now ‘healed-ish.’

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star further stated that the meeting – which was captured by Judge in a photo she shared to her Twitter – felt similar to a show reunion.
‘Ultimately, we just went through it. It was mainly, like, all the things we probably would have said to each other at the reunion, had we had the reunion,’ she said of their nearly 40-minute conversation.
The two stars met at TomTom in West Hollywood, which Vanderpump co-owns with her husband Ken Todd, 64, along with their Vanderpump stars Tom Sandoval, 38, and Tom Schwartz, 39.

Mellencamp – who left the series in 2020, after three seasons – said that she asked Lisa’s husband if he thought it’d be a good idea to ‘try and clear the air’ and that he agreed.
And though they are now on speaking terms, Mellencamp added that she doesn’t think the two stars will grabbing lunch together in the near future.
Their infamous feud started in 2019 after co-star Dorit Kemsley, 45, adopted a dog from Vanderpump’s dog rescue center, but then ended up giving it away to another family.

The dog was then placed in a in a kill shelter. When Lisa found out about it, she went on to confront Kemsley in regards to the situation.
The story was then leaked to the press by an anonymous source, who many of the cast mates believe to have been Vanderpump.
Teddi was roped into the drama by two Vanderpump Dogs employees, and the two women eventually began feuding as Teddi felt like a pawn in Lisa’s scheme to expose Dorit.
Vanderpump has denied the allegations and left the show halfway through Season 9 and did not show up to the reunion.
