Yolanda Foster is currently dealing with rumors regarding her Lyme disease. Although the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been documenting her health journey with fans for the last three years on the show, speculation continues to grow online in regard to just how sick Yolanda Foster really is.
It all started in July, when Radar Online reported news of Taylor Armstrong’s questions into Yolanda Foster’s diagnosis. According to the report, Armstrong made allegations against Yolanda Foster, reportedly claiming she wasn’t as sick as she leads on. The incident took place during Ken Todd’s birthday celebration at the home he shares with Lisa Vanderpump and was caught by Bravo cameras for the upcoming sixth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After Armstrong’s rumored claims were made, Lisa Rinna stood up for Yolanda Foster, claiming Armstrong didn’t even know her and slamming Armstrong for making such outrageous statement about her illness.
The source went on to explain Armstrong’s antics had led Rinna to believe she was brought back to the show strictly to stir the pot and was using Yolanda Foster’s Lyme disease to do so.

Two months later, after Yolanda Foster underwent breast implant removal surgery in an effort to reduce her Lyme disease symptoms, it was reported by Radar Online that she was preparing to confront her co-stars, including Armstrong, about their alleged doubts in her illness.
“[Yolanda Foster] is now firing on all cylinders again. You don’t want to mess with her! She will use RHOBH to continue to raise awareness for Lyme disease, and finding a cure. She doesn’t want anyone else to go through the hell she has.”
While Yolanda Foster’s breast implant removal surgery did help her symptoms, she still suffers from Lyme disease, and remains determined to find a cure. She was also said to be determined to make her co-stars pay for their doubts, and a third Radar Online report claimed Yolanda Foster was going to take aim at Kyle Richards for not defending her. Because Richards failed to stand up for her and her diagnosis, Yolanda Foster was said to be planning to expose her sister Kim’s sobriety issues on the show.

Although fans will have to wait until The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 premieres to find out all the details surrounding Yolanda Foster’s illness, she recently shot down rumors of Lyme disease fakery.
On September 29, Yolanda Foster shared the following message with her fans and followers on Instagram.
“People assume you aren’t sick unless they see the sickness on your skin, like scars forming a map of all the ways you are hurting……. #SadButTrue #InvisibleDisabilities #ChronicLymeDiseaseAwereness #SearchingForACure #AnotherDayComeAndGone.”
Yolanda Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, around the time she began filming scenes for the third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Then, in late 2014, as she continued filming Season 5, Yolanda Foster claimed to have suffered a Lyme disease relapse, which left her unable to read, write, and watch television.
During the Season 5 reunion, Yolanda Foster was forced to make an early exit from the show due to her Lyme disease symptoms, which left everyone wondering whether or not she’d return to Season 6, which she eventually did.
For more Yolanda Foster, tune into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6, when the new installment premieres later this year on Bravo.
