Lisa Vanderpump was on the same page with a fan who said that Season 9 of ‘RHOBH’ was full of ‘lies and deception.’ That’s because she watched a certain throwback clip between Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp!
Lisa Vanderpump, 58, doesn’t think Kyle Richards, 50, and Teddi Mellencamp, 38, told the whole truth about that one scene at Vanderpump Dogs on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The accusation was first made by a fan, who tweeted a clip of Lisa’s rivals chatting about the encounter with Lucy Lucy Apple Juice from the Season 9 premiere. “#RHOBH season of lies and deception. They all need to go,” the fan tweeted over the throwback video on Aug. 13. With the shade thrown on her behalf, Lisa simply replied, “Exactly.”
In the clip under question, Teddi and Kyle took a trip to Vanderpump Dogs in the beginning of Season 9. John Sessa, the executive director at the rescue organization, brought out the dog that Dorit Kemsley originally adopted from Vanderpump Dogs but gave away (the pooch, named Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, accidentally ended up at a shelter before it was returned to Lisa’s organization). Teddi recognized the dog as Dorit’s former rescue, and she and Kyle discussed this the next day over breakfast. “I never said anything until we get invited by Lisa to go to Vanderpump Dogs,” Teddi said, and Kyle added, “And they’re like, do you recognize this dog? Dorit gave it to someone I guess.” Of course, Lisa wasn’t too happy about her co-stars implying she set up the scene with Lucy Lucy Apple Juice to shine a bad light on Dorit.
Lisa and her fan also took issue with Teddi suggesting it was LVP’s idea to invite Teddi and Kyle to Vanderpump Dogs. “LIES!!! Production invited them and Teddi was the first to say ‘is that the dog’ AND No mention of Blizzard text msgs#RHOBH,” the fan tweeted. The aforementioned “Blizzard texts” refer to the messages that another Vanderpump Dogs employee, John Blizzard, exchanged with Teddi about the PuppyGate drama before it became a scandal (Teddi confessed to this).

John, will all due respect, they ALWAYS have us sign location agreements before every season. At my stores as well.

On July 23, the Vanderpump Dogs executive director also released alleged emails to prove that LVP was not conspiring to make Dorit look bad. One of these emails allegedly came from RHOBH production (dated July 25, 2018), which stated Kyle and Teddi were already set to visit Vanderpump Dogs before Lucy Lucy Apple Juice’s whereabouts were learned (that information came from an email allegedly sent from Newport Beach Animal Shelter on July 29, 2018. That would be four days after production allegedly sent the location agreement about Vanderpump Dogs).
John also claimed that the intention of Kyle and Teddi’s visit to Vanderpump Dogs was to groom their canines (not for Lisa to expose Dorit, since the trip was allegedly scheduled before Lucy Lucy Apple Juice was found at a shelter). However, HollywoodLife has not confirmed that these emails are authentic or accurate, and they could have been doctored. We have reached out to Kyle and Teddi’s reps for comment. Kyle also didn’t deny that she saw the alleged location agreement. She tweeted on July 24, “John, will [sic] all due respect, they ALWAYS have us sign location agreements before every season. At my stores as well.”
