Yolanda Foster is heartbroken over her split from David Foster. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who has been struggling with Lyme disease while seeking to use her health condition to enlighten the world about the disease, just announced the couple’s decision to divorce. And now, says Yolanda, her three children, Anwar, Bella, and Gigi Hadid, are her main reason to move on, reported People.
Foster, 51, explained that she views her offspring as her future.
“My Gigi, my Bella and my Anwar. My forever. I guess that’s my only forever,” added Yolanda.
Gigi is 20, while Bella is 19 and Anwar is 16. Foster described herself as “heartbroken” over the end of her marriage.
“I keep going, one foot in front of the other,” added Yolanda bravely.
Still sporting a band on her wedding ring finger, Foster sought to appear perky despite revealing her emotional pain at the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills premiere bash for Season 6, held in Hollywood.
“I’m so happy to be dressed tonight,” Yolanda confided in People. “I’m even wearing a little makeup. Got my hair done today just to make the girls happy and I’m grateful to have a job and, you know, I hope to be moving forward to a bright future and just trying to get through it one day at a time.”
Regarding Foster’s comment about makeup, some of her Real Housewives co-stars previously criticized Yolanda for not wearing cosmetics to a dinner, as the Inquisitr reported.
Both Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump were critical of their co-star’s appearance at a dinner shown on RHOBH.
“She does not look good at all, not even a bit of under eye… maybe she could just take ten seconds to do that,” complained Lisa.
And Kyle questioned the lack of make-up.
“Not a scrap… that’s borderline shocking,” declared the RHOBH co-star.
When symptoms of her health problems, including coughing and sweating, made her exit, the 51-year-old reality TV star was dissected instead of dessert.
“What the hell is it? What the hell is going on in her life?” demanded Vanderpump.
Yolanda has been candid about her battle with Lyme disease, but some of her co-stars have also questioned her treatment.
And an insider blamed the Lyme disease battle on their marriage.
“Things really changed in their relationship as Yolanda got sick, and then when her health worsened,” the insider told People. “They just grew apart and the intense stress over her health and the disease was very hard on their marriage.”
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star and her 66-year-old husband, David, shared that while they appreciated having nine years together (the last four of which they were married), they had decided to go “separate ways.”
But the Fosters were secretly having financial problems, according to Extra.
Yolanda has sought to keep their reasons for their split private, asking on social media that fans not judge Foster.
“We’ve grown apart but my love & respect for @officialdfoster is still the same, he’s been very good 2 me so pls don’t judge our journey!” pleaded the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.
But were they battling money matters prior to the divorce, which exacerbated their other problems? The Fosters initially asked $23.5 million for their mansion in Malibu prior to accepting the final sale price of $19.45 million, indicating that they may have been desperate for the financial flow.
Yolanda admitted that she is in mourning over the loss of her marriage.
“I share so much of my life, I just want to mourn this in a private way, hope we can remain friends, we really love and respect each other,” Foster said of David.
However, the divorce isn’t predicted to be a focus on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, although problems inside her marriage and her Lyme disease battle are seen as subplots to the popular reality TV show. Yolanda said that she has been improving since her last relapse.
“I feel like better today than I felt 12 months ago when I fell into my last relapse, and it’s taken me a year to get out of the bed,” said Foster.
