Teddi Mellencamp will reportedly not be appearing on upcoming seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Beginning with season 8, Mellencamp has been a regular member of the RHOBH cast. The finale of season 10 recently aired, leaving fans waiting for filming to begin again. According to an exclusive source with Dailymail.com, Mellencamp will not be returning.

The anonymous source, who was listed as a "production insider," told Daily Mail that the RHOBH producers found Teddi Mellencamp to be "boring and stale." They also noted that the other cast members do not particularly like her.

The insider said:

"She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members."

Mellencamp was reportedly almost cut last season but the producers decided to give her a second chance. At this point in time, the decision seems final.

Bravo has yet to comment about the casting decision.
