The 39-year-old reality star responded to those rumors. On her Instagram Story, she announced that she’s not leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

You don’t always have to agree with me. You don’t even have to like me but wishing someone would die is taking it to the next level. Please watch the show. Enjoy it. It’s entertainment and our lives can be crazy! Pick your faves and your villains, laugh, cry, relate etc but wishing death on another human is just wrong on so many levels. I hope those that follow me or those that just come on to troll can understand and respect that this needs to stop.
Teddi addressed the death threats in an emotional Instagram video. She has since disabled her comments and asked fans to enjoy the show, as well as to “pick [their] faves and [their] villains, laugh, cry, [and] relate,” but not to wish death on any of the cast members, including Teddi herself.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
