‘RHOBH’ Season 5 Reunion: Yolanda Foster Attended And, Along With Kim Richards, Tried To Defend Brandi Glanville

Yolanda Foster

Since the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 reunion filmed last Friday, one of the biggest questions that may be on viewers’ minds is whether Yolanda Foster attended. According to a source who spoke to E! News, Yolanda did attend, but not for the entire filming.

“[Yolanda] wasn’t feeling great. But she looked good and was articulate and well spoken while she was there. Instead of staying the whole day and not functioning the way she’d like, she stayed as long as she could and was solid.”

The source added that Yolanda, while she was there, defended Brandi, as did Kim Richards. While Yolanda and Kim still see the good in Brandi, the other women, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Eileen Davidson, put Brandi in the defense.

“There was definitely no love lost between her and several cast members. Kim sided with her — so did Yolanda for a bit.”

A day after the reunion filming, Yolanda posted a message on Instagram about women supporting one another. The message stated that “confident women don’t hate.” Yolanda added that confident women “love and support one another.”

As previously reported by the Inquistir, a day after the reunion filmed, Brandi Glanville tweeted that she was physically and mentally “exhausted” from the day prior and that she even had a sore throat. Prior to the reunion, she expressed fear that she was going in without any friends, since Yolanda Foster may not attend due to her Lyme disease relapse and Kim Richards was mad at her because she felt betrayed.

The source also said that the Season 5 reunion was “more emotional than past years” and that “the drama was real, it wasn’t just about petty stuff.”

Two people who got really emotional were Kim and Kyle Richards. As viewers have seen this past season, there has been a lot of conflict between the two sisters. Their relationship deteriorated at Eileen Davidson’s poker party, when Kyle became alarmed at Kim’s behavior after she took one of her ex-husband’s pain pills.

The source said that both Kim and Kyle broke out in tears at the Season 5 The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. As for the question of Kim’s sobriety, the source said that Kim was lucid, composed, and “appeared completely sober” during the filming.

Viewers will apparently see the relationship between Kim Richards and Kyle Richards only get worse. After the latest episode, in which the women arrived in Amsterdam and Kim Richards lashed out at Lisa Rinna and snapped at Kyle Richards, Kyle wrote in her blog that “things only get worse from here on.” Kyle even teased that “next week is the most intense moment [they] have ever had in five seasons of RHOBH.”
