Another one bites the dust. 🙁

Although Rinna’s tweet could have been aimed at other topics, it seems fairly likely that she was speaking of Yolanda Foster. After all, two housewives have already reportedly left their full-time roles, and Foster’s role is the only housewife whose role appears to be unconfirmed.
Last week, Rinna began filming with Kyle Richards, Eileen Davidson, and Lisa Vanderpump, but Yolanda Foster was nowhere in sight, and she has yet to comment on, or share photos, regarding production.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Yolanda Foster’s husband, David, is reportedly hoping she will not return to the show. Earlier this year, a source told Radar Online that David was encouraging Yolanda Foster to quit and focus solely on her health.
“David has told [Yolanda Foster] 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 Foster] 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.”
Yolanda Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, and at the end of 2014, she suffered a relapse, which left her unable to read, write, and watch television. In the months since, Yolanda Foster was forced to stop blogging for the show, and her participation in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 reunion show was extremely limited.
Because of her inability to participate as a typical full-time housewife would, her future with the show has been in jeopardy ever since. Still, Radar Online‘s source claimed the mother of three was hoping to return to the show, where she feels she has a platform to spread Lyme disease awareness.
“It will break [Yolanda Foster]’s heart if she can’t be on RHOBH because she wants to use the platform to raise awareness about the illness.”
Yolanda Foster joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during Season 3 in a full-time role.
