Rhodes To The Top opened their doors to the world in a reality television setting. That format of television is often over-produced, but Teil, Cody’s sister, was being very honest about her heat with Brandi Rhodes.

While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Brandi Rhodes opened up about her heat with Teil. Apparently, the two had tension between them since the beginning of their relationship. Brandi gave Teil some credit for maintaining professionalism on Rhodes To The Top, but then she shed some light on the issues between the name.

“I kind of don’t really feel like she said anything. I feel like she danced around it, which is okay. That’s actually a pro move. I dance around a lot of stuff because if you taken a definite stance and say something, then you have to stand by it. So I think she actually made a smart move there and danced around whatever was asked. But yeah, Teil is not lying, we’ve had a very strained relationship since day one. I think I told the story, or if I haven’t told it yet, I think I tell it in an upcoming episode of Rhodes to the Top, and I’ll go ahead and tell it now. So Day 1, Cody and I have started dating and it was around the holidays, so it was very quick that we were going to get introduced to each other’s families. I’m in Atlanta, we’re getting ready to go meet his sister who has two little kids at the time and her husband. I said ‘tell me about your sister, because I don’t know anything about her.’”

“So he launches into this diatribe on this car ride, and he starts burying his sister to me. I mean, just going for it, and in good fun let me say. He does love his sister and they’re good friends. But he just starts saying silly stuff, you know how Cody is, he makes stuff up just to pop me. But I don’t know her, so we get there, we pull into the driveway. He looks at his phone and goes ‘oh crap.’ I say ‘what’s wrong?’  He said ‘I called my sister. And I’ve been recording this entire time. I’ve got to get her to delete this!’ I said ‘well it was just joking. I’m sure she’ll understand.’ He says ‘no, you don’t know my sister. If she sees this message, she will hate you forever.’ Me, who didn’t say anything?! I just sat there in the car listening, and then the door opens and she’s standing there looking like a Stepford Wife. And I’m just like, ‘I’m screwed. This is not going to go well.’ And it never went well from that day. I don’t know if Teil ever heard that voicemail or not. I’m assuming she did, but I feel like the voicemail was the curse of the beginning of our relationship.”


Rhodes To The Top has a great timeslot after AEW Dynamite every week and that is sure to capture the interest of those fans after AEW’s weekly Wednesday show. Now we’ll have to see how things continue on that show and how it mirrors the actual lives of those involved. They seem to be telling an authentic story at this point, complete with all of the family drama.
