  • Love Teddi!

    Great Podcast for Teddi. Never Change my mind in housewife more than Tamra. Tamra is vial to all her friends and then has selective memory about it. She is so awful to Danielle, Jen, Teresa and protects Margreat & Melissa. Teddi has a open mind about things. I appreciate her opinion on things. Love Teddi!
