‘I do not like her’
If you’re eagerly anticipating a reconciliation between Vicki Gunvalson and Teddi Mellencamp, you may be disappointed. During an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Gunvalson, who has been feuding with Mellencamp since June 2022, reaffirmed her dislike for the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star. In a game of “Truth or Your Amigas Take a Shot,” Cohen asked Gunvalson and Shannon Beador to rate their annoyance with co-star Tamra Judge’s friend, Teddi Mellencamp, on a scale of 1 to 10. Gunvalson expressed her dislike for Mellencamp by giving her a 10 out of 10 and taking a shot. However, Beador disagreed and gave Mellencamp a rating of 1 out of 10, stating that she actually likes her. Later, when asked to name the “rudest housewife from another city,” Gunvalson wasted no time in shouting out “Teddi Mellencamp,” which caused Judge and Beador to react strongly and refuse to answer the question. Gunvalson’s animosity towards Mellencamp stems from a social media feud they had last year. Mellencamp posted a video of Gunvalson saying that she doesn’t “like” her, and Gunvalson responded by criticizing Mellencamp’s brief stint on “RHOBH” on Twitter. The feud escalated when Gunvalson made negative comments about Mellencamp during an episode of “WWHL” with Judge. Despite Gunvalson’s harsh words, Judge and Beador had only positive things to say about Mellencamp. Gunvalson claimed to have never met Mellencamp and criticized her for questioning her whereabouts on January 6th, referring to the Capitol riot. However, Judge defended Mellencamp, stating that her comment came after Gunvalson had attacked her and emphasizing that Mellencamp is a good person. Gunvalson maintained her dislike for Mellencamp but suggested discussing it later and advised against defensiveness. She previously stated that she wants nothing to do with Mellencamp following their clash, citing Mellencamp’s ignorance as the reason for her dislike.
If you’re waiting for Vicki Gunvalson and Teddi Mellencamp to bury the hatchet anytime soon, don’t hold your breath.
Appearing on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” Wednesday night, Gunvalson, who has been feuding with the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum since June 2022, doubled down on her dislike for the Bravolebrity.
During a game of “Truth or Your Amigas Take a Shot,” Cohen asked Gunvalson and Shannon Beador how annoying they find co-star Tamra Judge’s pal Teddi Mellencamp “on a scale of 1-10.”
If a housewives star refused to answer a question, the other two had to take a shot.
“I do not like her, so give me a shot,” Gunvalson, 61, declared, giving Mellencamp a 10 out of 10.
But Beador disagreed, saying, “I really like Teddi. She’s been nice to me. I’m going to give her a 1 [out of 10].”
Later, the trio was asked to name the “rudest housewife from another city.”
Without hesitation, Gunvalson yelled, “Teddi Mellencamp,” prompting outrage from Judge and Beador, who refused to answer the question.
Gunvalson and Mellencamp’s feud made headlines last year when rock n’ roll hall of famer John Mellencamp’s daughter posted a video of Gunvalson claiming not to “like” her.
“Hope this post doesn’t have her calling my @iheartradio boss to try and take my job again,” Mellencamp, 42, captioned the footage at the time.
Gunvalson, who denied Mellencamp’s accusation, dissed her fellow Bravo personality’s short-lived time on “RHOBH” on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Well if we’re talking numbers, could you let us all know where you were on January 6th?” Mellencamp replied, referencing the date former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol.
The pair’s feud reached new heights the following month when Gunvalson slammed Mellencamp during an appearance on “WWHL” alongside Judge.
When Judge told Andy Cohen that it is “very awkward” to be friends with the feuding women and that she wants “them to get along,” Gunvalson clapped back.
“I’ve never met her,” she chimed in. “You can not like people you’ve never met.”
“She asked me where I was on Jan. 6,” she went on. “That’s an idiotic thing to say to somebody. I know where I was. I was in Puerto Vallarta.”
Judge clarified that Mellencamp’s dig came “after [Gunvalson] went after her,” calling the accountability coach a very “nice” and “good person.”

“I don’t like her,” Gunvalson replied. “That doesn’t mean I’m after her. … We can talk about it later. I don’t like her. Don’t be so defensive.”
Gunvalson previously told TheFantasyTimes that she wants “nothing” to do with Mellencamp after their clash.
