Lisa Vanderpump has responded to Teddi Mellencamp’s comments that she believes she paid for Raquel Leviss to have an affair with Tom Sandoval to boost show ratings.
“Ok no …#PumpRestaurant will be open as normal…#fake-news Oh and no I didn’t pay cast members to sleep together for ratings #pumprules they do that on their own…#fake-news Have a beautiful day everybody,” she tweeted.
“She probably paid Raquel [Leviss] to do this,” said Teddi., who believes she did it to boost ratings of her show. She added “She’s gonna say the same points that I’ve been saying, like, ‘Listen, [Sandoval and Madix] weren’t in a good place for a long time. His needs weren’t met. [Sandoval and Leviss] fell in love. They couldn’t help themselves,’” she said on Melissa Gorga’s podcast.
Tamra Judge then told Teddi that LVP just wants what’s best for her staff. Teddi disagreed.
Fans are upset that LVP is defending Tom but everybody is tuning in to watch the Scandoval unfold.
