'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Season 10 Reunion: Teddi recounts how her daughter almost lost a finger
While Teddi and her husband were fretting over their daughter's injured finger, the little girl chose to see the silver lining in the situation
The 'Real Housewives' are known for having strong ties with their plastic surgeons, thanks to the countless botox and fillers they have gotten over the years. Thankfully, these connections came to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's rescue. During Part 2 of the Season 10 reunion, host Andy Cohen asked Teddi about her daughter Slate.
Teddi then launched into explaining how at the beginning of the lockdown while she was at home, Slate insisted on following her everywhere. So, when Teddi stepped out to throw the trash, Slate followed the housewife. While Slate was at the main door getting ready to step out after her mother, unfortunately, a gust of wind flew by right around that time. The wind ended up pushing the door, which slammed shut on Slate's finger.
Teddi revealed that the finger was amputated following the door slam. Andy was shocked on hearing Teddi recount the incident. He then asked her what she meant by amputated and questioned if she had to pick up the remains of her finger from off the ground. While the other housewives and Andy watched in horror, Teddi said yes. She shared how she had to wrap her daughter's hand up and then put the finger in an ice pack.
She later called 911 and the operator asked her to remove the finger from the ice pack and wrap it in gauze and store it in a bag.
A panicked Teddi began calling her fellow housewives for help and references to surgeons so that she could rush to get her daughter treated. Thankfully in no time, former housewife Adrienne Maloof's former husband, Dr Paul Nassif, came to her rescue. He operated on Slate and fixed her finger in such a way that nobody would know about any injury to her finger.
Teddi also shared how while her husband Edwin Arroyave and she were worried about their daughter and were feeling bad about it, Slate was reportedly very optimistic about the situation. She thought that the injury was a perfect excuse for her to sleep in her mother's bed.
