“Before that, Vicky came to our podcast and told me to my face that she didn’t like me,” the fitness blogger continued. “She [was] like:”I really don’t like you, I’m jealous. How much are you guys paying me to be here?” I’m like… “Do you want me to venmo you?” And then she got mad that I didn’t do it! I’m like, “I’m not paying anyone. Talk to [iHeartRadio].”
Speaking about her podcasting ventures, Teddy attributed the success of “Two T’s and a Pod” to her and Tamra’s ability to “push each other,” especially when discussing housewives.
