Yolanda Foster’s continuing battle with Lyme disease is taking its toll on her body and mind. While the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star reportedly wants to return for another season, her husband is urging her to quit the show so her vicious co-stars cannot use her health issues against her.
Because her condition continues to deteriorate, David Foster thinks it is time for Yolanda to quit the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, a source close to the show tells Radar Online. The loving husband is concerned Yolanda’s “vicious co-stars” can, or will, use her deteriorating health against her while filming.
“David has told Yolanda there is just no way she can return to the show because her condition is just getting worse. The Lyme disease is just ravaging her, and traveling for the international medical treatments is taking a toll. Yolanda is extremely weak, and her memory is suffering. David is just being protective because he doesn’t want any of the ladies to use her illness against her, as he knows those women are vicious.”
Filming is set to begin this summer for the sixth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Bravo producers are currently reaching out to certain cast members to gauge their interest in coming back, the insider tells Radar Online.
Whether Yolanda Foster is even healthy enough to come back for another grueling season of the show is debatable. According to ET Online, the RHOBH star continues to search for a cure nearly two years after being first diagnosed. Fighting the disease has become a nightmare.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the disease has taken such a toll on the reality TV star that she admitted earlier this year she lost the ability to read and write, and her memory is suffering. As Us Magazine reports, Yolanda left the RHOBH reunion very early on in filming due to her ailing health.
The show insider tells Radar Online that Yolanda Foster will be devastated if she cannot return to the show, as she uses her position on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to raise awareness about Lyme disease.
“It will break Yolanda’s heart if she can’t be on RHOBH because she wants to use the platform to raise awareness about the illness.”
Although rumors are swirling about who will be asked back for another season of the show, no concrete decisions have been made or announced by Bravo producers as of yet.
