Teddi got straight to the point in her video, defending her decision.
“So I’m going through my DMs doing a little work for Two Ts in a Pod, and someone sent me a message. I want you guys to read it and let me know your thoughts,” Teddi said, sharing a screenshot of the message, which read, “Ur a public figure trying to help women loose [sic] weight yet your getting a face lift to remind those of us who need one who can’t afford one how ugly we are Thanku.”
In response to that comment, Teddi replied, “I am being transparent with my journey. Would you prefer I lie and pretend the loose skin on my neck disappeared? That’s not who I am. You want to only follow people that show themselves through a filtered version of themselves then I am not the person to follow.”
She added, “(Btw, this has nothing to do with going all in on your life – I changed my life 7 years ago and am proud of that and will continue sharing and helping others achieve their goals).”
After sharing her response to the user, Teddi then posed the question to her followers: “Do you appreciate me being open about my journey or would you rather I just pretend I did nothing?”
Teddi left RHOBH in 2020.
