LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, a reality TV star and member of the cast of the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', recently opened up about her experience with skin cancer. In March 2022, while exercising with a co-star, she was told that one of the spots on her back looked different and had a black dot in the middle. This prompted her to visit a dermatologist, who confirmed it was melanoma, a type of skin cancer.
