She's not embarrassed about the cosmetic procedure she had done.
The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Teddi Mellencamp has spoken up about a cosmetic procedure she had done on her body, particularly her neck.
This week, Teddi Mellencamp disclosed on her social media that she just underwent a neck lift and defended her decision, citing her insecurity over her appearance as a reason. She subsequently shared photos of her scar after the operation and assured followers that she is doing fine.
“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,” the reality star began.
The self-professed accountability coach then published a screenshot of herself responding to an Instagram user’s DM, 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.”
Mellencamp replied to her message, saying, “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.”
“(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),” she continued, adding, “Do you appreciate me being open about my journey or would you rather I just pretend I did nothing?”
The former housewife had undergone different surgeries throughout her life, including having a mole removed from her back following a melanoma scare and breast implants, which she isn’t hesitant to share with her fans.

I get why some go the plastic surgery route because some of the comments on social media about celebs is downright cruel, but therapy to learn acceptance and how to block the outside noise is needed, not going under the knife— Kim Marie (@KimMari15039764) May 10, 2022
