Teddi Mellencamp claims Vicki Gunvalson called her boss at iHeartRadio and tried to take her job as a podcast host.
The 40-year-old “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” made the claim on Instagram Wednesday, posting an “Entertainment Tonight” interview in which Gunvalson, 60, seemed annoyed that Tamra Judge was hooking up “Two Ts in a Pod” hosts. at Mellencamp.
“I don’t know Teddi Mellencamp, but I don’t like Teddi Mellencamp,” the Real Housewives of Orange County alum said in the clip.
Mellencamp responded in the caption: “I can only hope @vickigunvalson was paid with gas cards as her love tank seems to be running out lately,” referencing Gunvalson’s famous line about her “love tank” being full when she’s in a relationship .
She added: “I hope this message doesn’t make her call my @iheartradio boss to try and take my job back… 😂.”
Gunvalson denied the claim in the comments section, writing: “What the heck?? I never tried to ‘take your job’. I’m fine honey…I have a career @coto.insurance and work with @debtcom.”
The “OG of the OC” concluded, “Oh…and my love tank is full and it’s not empty at all. That was rude! Please don’t use me for content on your podcast.”
The feud spread to Twitter, where Mellencamp shared that she’d watched “I Love That for You,” a Showtime series starring “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Vanessa Bayer, and compared the storyline to Gunvalson’s cancer-causing ex. Brooks Ayers.
Gunvalson fired back, “Wow… Low blow! You don’t know anything about what happened to my x [sic]† That’s why you only lasted 3 years… ME…14!”
The tweet then prompted Mellencamp to make a bombshell innuendo about Gunvalson, writing back: “Well, speaking of numbers, can you let us all know where you were on January 6?”
There is no evidence that Gunvalson was in the United States Capitol on the day of the attack, and she did not respond to the tweet.
“Two Ts in a Pod” debuted on iHeartRadio in December 2021, more than a year after Judge, 54, and Gunvalson were not asked to return to “RHOC”.
However, the “RHOC” alums are now part of a cast of former “Housewives”, along with Dorinda Medley, Taylor Armstrong, Brandi Glanville, Phaedra Parks, Eva Marcille and Jill Zarin, who star in “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex Wives Club,” which premiered on Peacock on Thursday.
