Kyle Richards has been busy in Beverly Hills since the show wrapped last year. She has been keeping her distance from her sister and been working on her business instead. It sounds like things are going great with her store, but Richards is clearly still dealing with some old drama from previous seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. For one, she still hasn’t reached out to her sister Kim after she was arrested at the Beverly Hills hotel.
In addition, Kyle Richards hadn’t talked to Yolanda Foster about her Lyme disease while the cameras were not around. Richards saw Yolanda during Lisa Rinna’s birthday party, and it was clear that she wasn’t doing well. But Richards was very surprised when she learned that Yolanda and David Foster were divorcing.
According to a new Bravo report, Kyle Richards is now revealing that the divorce came as a shock to her, but she knew that they were having problems. While Kyle and Yolanda may not have been close, she knows that Foster’s Lyme disease was taking a toll on the marriage. While David was traveling quite a bit, Yolanda was forced to stay home and treat herself.

Kyle Richards sat down with Andy Cohen for an episode of Watch What Happens Live last night after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 premiere, and she dished on Yolanda’s divorce announcement, which had come hours prior. Andy asked her if she was surprised about the divorce.
“In some ways, yes. Yes, we didn’t know,” Kyle said, adding, “I think that they’ve been struggling, and Yolanda’s been so sick. I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. I have no idea, but it was just really sad.”
Apparently, Kyle Richards had seen David just a few weeks ago. He attended Kris Jenner’s 60th birthday party. Yolanda was not with him, as she was in New York supporting her daughters. Both Bella and Gigi Hadid were walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It is uncertain whether they talked about Yolanda, but Kyle had no sense that something was wrong. Surely, the two knew that the divorce was going to happen back then, given they weren’t spending much time together.
“No, he didn’t share with me,” Kyle said, sharing, “But I do feel very bad, and she’s struggling right now. To have to go through that at the same time as dealing with Lyme disease, it’s going to be hard.”

During the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere, Yolanda did give some hints as to what was wrong with her in her marriage. Foster told her close friends that David had been traveling a lot, and Yolanda was miserable at home. She even revealed that she would have jumped off the balcony if it hadn’t been for her children. So, it seemed a bit immature when the other ladies commented too much on Yolanda’s appearance during Lisa Rinna’s birthday.
“I’m actually really surprised to see Yolanda, she does not look good at all, I mean she’s got nothing on her face, at all. Not even a bit of under eye coverup or anything … maybe you could just take 10 seconds to do that,” Lisa Vanderpump revealed after seeing Yolanda without makeup.
Twitter went crazy with reactions to Lisa’s comment, and Kyle was left sorting out the pieces of the dinner.
“Seems like all anyone could talk about was her personal appearance, Twitter was blowing up,” host Andy Cohen told Kyle during the Watch What Happens Live interview, to which Kyle replied, “I meant women in general. I actually think Yolanda looks great without makeup and not many women can pull that off, just to clarify.”
What do you think of Kyle Richards’ comments about Yolanda? Do you think Lyme disease is the reason behind their divorce?
