That’s a wrap; Yolanda Hadid bids farewell to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and will not return for Season 7 next year.
The reality TV star wrote an emotional Instagram post detailing why she felt she had no other choice but to resign from the hit Bravo TV show and thanked her fans that supported her.
The post claims that she need to regain some of the privacy in her life, and she says she will continue her fight against Lyme disease. She claims she is excited about her decision, and her future is bright.
“I would have loved a more graceful exit than “Season 6″ but sometimes we don’t get to control the endings of the chapters in our life………… I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is a new entry and with that in mind, I say goodbye to my@Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home……….. Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I’am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life……………… #RHOBH#TimeToSayGoodbye with #Gratitude@evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv#WWHL”
The RHOBH rumors for Season 7 reported that Bravo wanted Hadid to build a storyline around her newly single status and her quest to find love again. At the time, allegedly Yolanda wasn’t sure she wanted to do that because she wanted some parts of her life to remain private. Ultimately, Bravo reportedly issued her an ultimatum that Hadid must either look for love on RHOBH or face the possibility of being fired. Now, it sounds like she decided to walk away on her own terms.

It’s not really a secret that Yolanda struggled in Season 6 after being accused of “faking” Lyme disease. Hadid recalls feeling hurt and disgusted by her fellow cast members as they had doubts that she was truly sick.
Last week, Yolanda’s friend and former cast member, Brandi Glanville reported that Yolanda was “100% cured of Lyme disease.” How does one go from knocking on death’s door to miraculously healed in a matter of months?
Apparently, we’ll find out when Yolanda’s book, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease. Hadid will describe her road to wellness and the struggle to reclaim her health.
Obviously, the fans wish Yolanda well as she continues her quest to bring awareness to those who suffer from Lyme disease. Hadid won’t completely disappear off the earth as her daughters Bella and Gigi are supermodels.
All About The Tea reports that most of the RHOBH viewers are cheering as they learn that Yolanda Hadid will not return next season. Bravo has not released a statement about her departure yet.
When you think about it, Hadid had no other choice but to leave the show. Bravo made her look silly with her ridiculous Lyme disease treatments and medicines.
❤️Thank you to @stmartinspress for publishing my book "BELIEVE ME" It took so much time, research, money and effort to get properly diagnosed…only to find out that there is no cure! It has been an eye opening experience. While I started to uncover the mystery of chronic neurological Lyme disease and the stigma around it, I felt a strong sense of obligation to share my journey with the millions of people suffering from this debilitating disease and world wide epidemic. It feels so good to finally be able to write and share with you the details of my treatments, diagnosis and the spiritual growth I acquired during the darkest days of my live while navigating the uncertainties in the maze of chronic invisible diseases………. #LymeDiseaseAwareness #WeMustFindACure #BELIEVEME Pre-orders available on Amazon, Link is in my bio
So far, it is rumored that Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump, and Erika Girardi have all inked new contracts for Season 7. Kim Richards and Eileen Davidson will return in a handful of episodes as “friends of a housewife.”
RHOBH fans, are you surprised that Yolanda Hadid will not return for Season 7? Do you think she decided to leave after Bravo didn’t buy into her ploy to bring awareness to Lyme Disease as a storyline?
