Teddi Mellencamp Explains How 'Fluctuating Weight' Led to Her Decision to Get Neck Lift

In an interview, the former star of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' that her 'body had lost that elasticity' after going through a 'multitude of things,' including 'gaining over 80 lbs... and losing it.'

AceShowbiz - Teddi Mellencamp blames loss of elasticity for her getting a neck lift. The former star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star explained that she opted to go under the knife because it morphed into a problem that she "didn't want to deal with anymore."

While being interviewed on "Extra", the 40-year-old reality television personality said the issue, according to her plastic surgeon Dr Sarmela Sunder, probably stemmed a "multitude of things." She explained to Billy Bush, "Add to years of fluctuating weight, you know, gaining over 80 lbs. And losing it, not even just with kids before kids, since pretty much I was 17 years old, that my body had lost that elasticity."

"So not only did I naturally have that slope, then I also added loose skin to it and I got to the point I was like angling myself in certain directions and it became something I didn't want to deal with anymore," Teddi continued in the Friday, May 13 interview. "I work really hard to feel confident, and this is a little thing that I can do and I want to be honest with the people that follow me and give them the good, the bad, and the ugly."

The daughter of music legend John Mellencamp admitted to getting lots of "crazy" reactions, but she "wanted to point out the negative." She reasoned, "Everybody went crazy. I mean, there was way more positive than there was negative, but I kind of wanted to point out the negative because people continuously want to know all the details, but when you give them the details, they are upset about it."

Teddi, who shares 9-year-old daughter Slate, 7-year-old son Cruz and 2-year-old daughter Dove with Edwin Arroyave, believed that the decision to get plastic surgery is a personal decision.

The "All In By Teddi" founder said, "If you don't want to get rid of it, don't get rid of it," before ruling that "we live in a world of fillers," which pushed her to be open about her process. She said, "I work really hard on changing my life and being healthy, but this is something that I couldn't change on my own."

Earlier this week, the "Teddi Tea Pod" podcaster defended her decision by saying she was "being transparent." She said, "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."
