There was clearly some distance between LVP and the Kemsleys, who hadn't heard from her since the Bahamas. Lisa didn't even text PK for his birthday, which he found odd.
"I love her, but LVP is a genius at manipulation and control," he told his wife. "She's the best in the world at it, and I respect her for it, but it gets a bit different and a bit difficult for me when it's my wife."
Dorit said she just wanted "a little bit of honesty" from her friend, before the couple considered the possibility that Teddi could be lying. In the end, Dorit said she ultimately believed Mellencamp.
PK then urged his wife to seek "one" apology from "your majesty," even though Dorit usually has to apologize "15 million times" to Lisa whenever she screws up.
Teddi told Erika she had been on the outs with Dorit since last season, alleging Dorit also "ignored" her at a few events, too. She then accused LVP of using that to her advantage.
"Lisa knew there was tension between Dorit and I," Teddi explained. "So I get the call from Vanderpump Dogs. They said, 'This thing happened with Dorit and the dog. Can you believe it? It's crazy. Lisa wanted you to know.' And I had a very dramatic response. I was kind of in it, texting with them, being catty back. Like, 'Alright, gimme more deets. Show me the tea!' Not being the most above-board human being."
"She fed me information, and I bit," Teddi continued. "Then Kyle and I get invited by Lisa Vanderpump to go to Vanderpump Dogs. They wanted me to say it. I already know this going into Vanderpump Dogs, and I couldn't go through with it."
When Erika asked Teddi what exactly she was told to say, Teddi replied, "Telling everybody what Dorit did."
"Lisa is now in a full tizzy, 'Don't say anything! Don't say anything!'" Teddi continued, referring to Vanderpump's reaction when the subject came up on camera. "That is when I realized, 'I am set up. Something's going on, and I don't feel good about it anymore.' If I wanted to lie, I wouldn't have said I was petty at the beginning and I was involved. I have the proof, but somehow, she's gonna try to flip it. I know it. In my heart of hearts, I think that's what she's doing right now."

Lisa invited John Blizzard to Villa Rosa to go over the text messages Ken showed her last episode. The texts from Teddi to John read, "Have the dog there and I can say it looks like Dorit's dog."
Lisa said she was under the impression -- from the way Teddi approached her in the Bahamas -- that Teddi had "absolutely nothing to do with this scenario." She claimed the texts shocked and angered her.
"I know I don't know you very well," she began her conversation with Blizzard. "I mean, I don't. I know you've worked at the center. And really, before we even start anything, I really appreciate everything. However, you have kind of complicated my life. Our relationship is not that close, but clearly, you seem to be a lot closer to Teddi."
"Somehow, things got misconstrued," LVP continued, claiming Blizzard must have been confused. "Okay, so you told her. But then you implicate me," Lisa said, referring to the fact Blizzard told Teddi that Lisa had put him up to it.
"I put words in your mouth that were not true," he replied, effectively distancing Lisa from the situation. "And I will own that, and I'm sorry for that ... and that's what everyone at the center is so frustrated about is how this is all being flipped onto you."
"She's not gonna be happy that you showed me the texts," Lisa said.
"Yeah, but at the same time, she shouldn't have brought up my texts," John replied.
After Lisa got confirmation from Blizzard that Teddi was in on the scheme, she invited Dorit and Kyle over to her house -- to throw Teddi under the bus.
At this point, Dorit had no idea Teddi was involved at all, but Kyle did because Teddi had already shown her her texts with Blizzard.
When Lisa laid it all out, Kyle said, "I can see what you're saying. There's no doubt that [Teddi's] hands aren't clean in this, but I think that it's not fair to put that on her when she wasn't alone in the situation." Kyle later told the camera that Teddi absolutely "did not initiate this."
Lisa said that was "absolutely bullshit" and that she had "never spoken to John Blizzard." She also claimed John Sessa had "no idea" Teddi and Blizzard were interacting.
Kyle then asked Dorit how she knew that Teddi knew. Dorit said Lisa called her and told her. Kyle then turned her sights back to Vanderpump and asked, "How did you know that Teddi knew?"
Lisa claimed she didn't know at the time, then backtracked and said she texted Dorit, saying, "You need to get in front of this. You need to clear this up."
Something wasn't adding up. When Kyle pressed her, Lisa said, "Well, I just knew that if Teddi knows, or I know, you know, we all know, we start talking about it, so I said, 'You should go and talk to John.'"
Poor Dorit was stunned and hurt because, up until this point, Teddi had led her to believe that "Lisa Vanderpump and only Lisa Vanderpump" had any hand in the ordeal. Lisa showed Dorit Teddi's texts, and Dorit started crying. "It's disgusting," she said. Kyle agreed, but she also wasn't buying everything Lisa was selling.
"Lisa's saying she never spoke with John Blizzard, but someone told her something because she quickly let Dorit know," Kyle said during a later confessional. "So who told you? Where'd you get the information? Obviously, Lisa and John Blizzard had a whole conversation going on about that."
