Teddi Mellencamp may not be a key figure on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH), but she is definitely not one you want to miss whenever she is on the screen. Mellencamp is an actress and reality television star who made her debut on The Domenick Nati Show in 2016.
Teddi has been much more visible since she joined the cast of RHOBH in 2017. Since then, she has been more frequent on the screen with appearances on shows like Steve, Flipping Out, and Vanderpump Rules. On most of her television projects, she appears under her real name.
Teddi Mellencamp Bio (Age)
Teddi Jo Mellencamp was born far from the limelight of Hollywood, in Bloomington, Indiana and was raised in Hilton Head, South Carolina. She was born on July 1, 1981. It is not clear the schools she attended for her education.
It became clear early that Teddi has an entrepreneurial spirit, especially given the course her life has charted so far. Mellencamp’s time on television began with talk shows rather than movies. After The Domenick Nati Show, she was on the talk show, The Real, the following year. In the same year, Teddi Jo became part of the cast of the reality series RHOBH. On the show, she got to work with Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, and others. She joined the show ahead of its eight seasons and as of April 2019, has appeared in 33 episodes. This is her biggest television participation yet.
Besides her commitment to RHOBH, Teddi Mellencamp has made time to appear on other shows such as Megyn Kelly Today, Access Hollywood Live, and Watch What Happens: Live, all in 2018.
In 2019, Teddi has been on The Wendy Williams Show, Strahan & Sara, and Home & Family. She has also continued her participation on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Celebrity Page, and Steve, the latter two which she joined in 2018. Teddi Mellencamp officially starred in her debut movie, the family drama Next Level, playing the character, Mrs. Stallings in 2019.
Her Mother, Siblings, and Family
One of the stand-out positives of Teddi’s personality is that since she moved to California at the age of 17, she has sort to make her own name on her own terms. This is especially admirable, given that the reality star comes from a well-to-do home.
If the name “Mellencamp” rings a bell, you’re probably thinking in the right direction. Teddi is the daughter of the famous rock music legend, John “Cougar” Mellencamp. Of course, it would be natural to assume that Teddi received some financial assistance from her father in her early days, but still, striking out on her own is one thing that endears her fans to her.
John Mellencamp used to be married to Teddi’s mother, Victoria Granucci, who is much more anti-social than her husband and daughter. It is not clear when Victoria and John tied the knot, however, Victoria came into the picture after John had split from his first wife and high school sweetheart, Priscilla Esterline.
Through her parents, Teddi Mellencamp has a brother named Justice. Sadly, John and Victoria called time on their marriage in 1989.
The TV star, like her father, has been to the altar more than once. She used to be married to a man named Matthew Robertson who she met through a blind date. They tied the knot in 2006 and divorced sometime later. She eventually met Edwin Arroyave whom she married in 2011.
Edwin is the CEO of a home security firm, Skyline Security Management. Teddi has two kids with her husband, Cruz and Slate Arroyave. She also has a step-daughter, Isabella, from her time with her first husband.
What Is Her Net Worth?
While it is certain that the reality star’s time on RHOBH is bringing in good money, that is not all she does for a living. She took her passion for fitness and her personal experiences with weight problems and turned that into her own fitness brand, LA Workout Junkie.
Teddi Mellencamp is positioned as a fitness accountability coach on her brand’s website where she urges people to be their best selves. This is beyond business for the reality TV star as she has battled with weight fluctuations for much of her life, especially after becoming a mother.
For her work as an accountability coach, the actress probably charges a pretty amount, especially for a business based in Beverly Hills which is one of the most expensive locations on the planet. She is also a social media influencer and makes money from sponsored posts as well.
Add up her time as a talent agent, a reality star and actress, and as an entrepreneur, you will surely see why her net worth is estimated to be around $12 million.
