Teddi Mellencamp slammed Lisa Vanderpump on social media last weekend. Before Vanderpump appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star posted a photo of the cast for Season 9.
Mellencamp subtly shaded Vanderpump in the caption, writing “#BTS #StandInSunday.” The reality star also tagged her co-stars in the pic, but made no mention of Vanderpump. The image did not feature the Vanderpump Rules star and showed somebody else standing in her place.
According to Reality Blurb, Vanderpump skipped out on the cast photo and producers had to photoshop her in the pic, which was taken in September.
“Lisa shot her photo separately after the other ladies shot theirs, so they photoshopped her in,” an insider dished.
The source also revealed that Vanderpump took the photo on the same day she did cast pics for Vanderpump Rules. Although her RHOBH co-stars wanted her to join them for the cast photo, Vanderpump reportedly refused to mingle with them amid their ongoing feud.

Around the same time the photo was taken, Lisa Rinna and Erika Girardi revealed that one cast member refused to pose alongside everyone else. The two shared a video on Instagram confirming the rumors.
After the video was posted, Vanderpump reportedly refused to do any more scenes this season, at least when they involved her co-stars.
With Vanderpump seemingly on the verge of leaving the show, Eileen Davidson recently opened up about what she thinks about the drama this season. Davidson, who was on the show as a full-time cast member for a few seasons, says that she could see Vanderpump calling it quits in the near future.
Not only is she tired of all the drama and refusing to film with her co-stars, but she’s also heavily involved with her own show, Vanderpump Rules.

“Yeah, I do (see that),” Davidson said about Vanderpump leaving. “Because I know that she’s threatened to leave for about 6 years…”
Lisa Vanderpump has not confirmed the rumors that she is leaving the reality show.
Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Feb. 12 on Bravo.
