"Mood: Final night for #RHOBH Season 9 on @bravotv. Thanks to the women whom I've grown so close to, the amazing crew, my family-- basically thanks to everyone. Well, everyone except a few tweeters," she wrote.

Teddi Jo's life has never been ordinary as she grew up as the daughter of a famous father, according to The List.

After her parents called it quits, it was the horses that helped her get through it. In an interview with Sidelines, she said:

"There are some kids that when that happens, they get a little lost, but riding gave me so much to focus on and so much positivity in my life I was unable to ever feel those moments."
