Besides the mainstays, a new Housewife will be joining them in season 8. E! News reports that Teddi Jo Mellencamp will be the new addition to the cast in the upcoming season, although it's currently unknown if she will be a full-time Housewife or appear as a friend of the Housewives.
Teddi is the daughter of music legend John Mellencamp. In her Instagram bio, she describes herself as an "accountability coach and fitmom addicted to sweat and laughter. Writer of honest sarcastic reviews for anything health/fitness." She is married to Edwin Arroyave and has two children and one step-child.
