The controversy surrounding Teddi Mellencamp’s All In weight loss program didn’t lead to her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, producer Andy Cohen said in a recent interview he wanted to see Mellencamp respond to her critics. He also thought the television series was the perfect method for that response.
Cohen set the record straight on his Sirius XM program, Radio Andy on Wednesday.
“Now there’s a whole controversy online about her business,” Cohen said. “That’s going on now. I do want to say, people are speculating that the online chatter about her business led to her dismissal. I just want to say because I think it’s important that one had absolutely nothing to do with the other.”
He finished weighing in on the issue by saying, “I actually would have liked to see her respond to her critics on the show. I would have liked to have seen that.”
The controversy surrounding Mellencamp’s All In stems from some clients claiming the program literally starves them. Indeed, they claim calorie allowances are as low as 500 per day.
Cohen said he’d only heard good things about the fitness service.

The reality television veteran added positive comments about the service came specifically from people he knew well. He mentioned a colleague, Jeff Lewis talked about it recently.
He did add Lewis and others who used All In felt hunger at times. However, it was a good kind of hunger as they trained to order different foods when they went to restaurants.
Cohen finished the segment by saying he needed to clear up rumors surrounding Mellencamp’s exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. He added that when Mellencamp announced her exit from the show, she did it the right way.
Teddi Mellencamp’s tough year
Earlier this week, Mellencamp made it official. She took to Instagram to put the rumors to bed, once and for all. She announced she wasn’t returning to the program and, in a striking bit of honesty, that her departure was not a mutual decision.
“Of course I could give you the standard response of, ‘Oh we both came to the decision that it would be best.’ Nah, I’m not going to do that — that’s not who I am. Of course when I got the news I was sad. It feels like a breakup, almost,” she said in part of a new video, “because you develop such strong relationships with the cast, with the crew. And you get to do incredible things that you probably never get to experience without the show.”
Cohen liked the way Mellencamp didn’t pull any punches and didn’t beat around the bush. At the same time, there are still plenty of questions about why won’t return.
