With his long hair, the husband of a RHOBH alum looks completely different.


RHOBH season 10 cast.

Fans were taken aback when Teddi Mellencamp shared a picture of her husband, Edwin Arroyave. The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star shared a throwback photo of her husband’s previous, longer hairstyle on Instagram.

When Mellencamp first met Arroyave, she was taken aback by his expression. The Bravo alum revealed in an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle that she met the Skyline Security CEO at a Hollywood nightclub more than a decade ago, but she didn’t realize he had long hair at the time because it was hidden.

“I was slightly duped because Edwin was wearing a beanie cap when I first saw him,” she explained to the outlet. “Then the next morning, I saw him with the beanie off and a ponytail hanging out the back,” says the author.

Mellencamp admitted that she saw Arroyave as a one-night stand and didn’t expect them to become more than friends.

Teddi Mellencamp posted a photo of Edwin’s long hair on her Instagram account.

Mellencamp posted a throwback photo of herself and Arroyave posing in 2010 in an Instagram post in June 2022. The father of four wore a white t-shirt and sported long hair, a beard, and a mustache in the photo. As he posed with a blond Mellencamp, Arroyave’s face was partially obscured.

Mellencamp captioned the photo, “#happynationalbestfriendday to this guy under the condition that he never grows his hair out like this again.”

However, some commenters praised Arroyave’s appearance, including Mellencamp’s former RHOBH co-star Erika Jayne, who called her “hot.”

Mellencamp responded, “I know who to blame if [Erika Jayne] grows his hair back out to a bob.”

Arroyave appeared to be a celebrity to some of his fans.

One fan wrote, “He looks like Milo Ventimiglia here,” with a series of fire emojis.

“Jack and Blonde Rebecca #thisisus,” said another, agreeing with the “This Is Us” star’s comparison.

Arroyave gave off “Dave Navarro vibes,” according to one fan.

Mellencamp responded to the remarks, “For Pete’s sake.”

Edwin Arroyave Changed His Look in 2019


During his RHOBH cameos when his wife was a cast member, Arroyave wore a variety of hairstyles, but Mellencamp never concealed her disapproval of her husband’s long hair.

“Not into threesomes but Ed insisted on bringing his ponytail… #datenight,” she captioned an Instagram photo of herself and Edwin from 2018.

Arroyave and the couple’s son, Cruz, collaborated on a father-son haircut in 2019 to get rid of Arroyave’s ponytail. Arroyave shared before and after photos of himself and Cruz getting matching mohawks, as well as a video of the two at the salon with a shout-out to the stylist, in an Instagram post at the time.

“Our first father-son cut,” Arroyave wrote, revealing that Mellencamp was pleased with the pairing. “It took over a year for @teddimellencamp to persuade us to cut our hair,” he continued. “If Daddy does it, I’ll do it,” Cruz says.

Mellencamp approved of her boys’ new looks, according to Arroyave, who also used the hashtag #happywife.

In a new photo with her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton, Kim Richards looks unrecognizable.
