Yolanda Foster announced a few years back that she was suffering from Lyme disease. Yolanda started noticing different things on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and she couldn’t put sentences together. She was truly struggling, and she couldn’t find the right words to say. Foster has since tried to find a cure for Lyme disease.
For a while, Yolanda Foster considered leaving the show behind to focus on finding a cure and getting healthy. But as it turns out, Foster could use The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to share her story and inspire others who are also struggling with Lyme disease. Sadly, Yolanda has been dealing with rumors this season, and she isn’t happy about the rumors that she is supposedly faking Lyme disease.
According to a new Radar Online report, Yolanda Foster is not ready to become the subject of gossip. Yolanda has often revealed that she just wants true friends she can talk to. She has no interest in becoming the topic of gossip on the show the way Brooks Ayers has become the center of attention on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Some of her co-stars have already questioned her Lyme disease, but Foster won’t allow the ladies to make her the focus of gossip. To battle it differently than Brooks Ayers, Foster is ready to produce extensive medical records to prove she really is suffering from Lyme disease.

“She seems to be the center of all of the drama,” an insider told Radar Online, adding, “The ladies have continued to question her Lyme disease diagnosis, all behind her back. Knowing the cattiness of the ladies, Yolanda isn’t surprised about the whispers, but just wishes it would have been expressed to her directly.”
“Yolanda watched how Bravo handled Brooks’ cancer scandal,” the source continued, revealing, “She won’t tolerate this playing out as gossip fodder or allow the show to minimize the seriousness of what she has been through.”
Several of her co-stars are not really sure about Yolanda’s illness. Recently, Kyle Richards told Us Weekly that she strongly believes that Foster is indeed very sick.
“I want to be very clear about this,” Richards told the magazine, adding, “She 100 percent has Lyme disease and is really suffering. There’s no question about that at all, so I really want to be clear about that because there have been people thinking I doubted or questioned it because of a comment made in which I was discussing the trailer for the upcoming season.”

In the trailer for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa is talking about Yolanda’s illness, and Kyle says, “I don’t quite understand what’s wrong with her. I don’t know if it is Lyme disease, but I’m not criticizing her. I’m just questioning it.”
This caused a huge discussion as to whether Foster is faking her illness. While Yolanda herself has never said or done anything to make people question her, Kyle’s comment in the trailer has caused people to go crazy. But Yolanda herself reveals that she is struggling and her life has completely changed. And her children have even shared updates about their mother on social media and during red carpet interviews.
“It’s been a long journey. I look quite normal, but yet I’m so sick. I have weakness in my legs, no brain function. I mean, I haven’t driven a car in three years,” Yolanda has revealed, according to Us Weekly.
Do you think Yolanda Foster is faking Lyme disease? Do you think this upcoming season could be a repeat of Brooks Ayers on The Real Housewives of Orange County?
