Yolanda Foster Making ‘RHOBH’ Reunion, Says Having Almost Full Recovery From Lyme Disease

Yolanda Foster has been battling Lyme disease for a long time, even to the point that she was only part-time on this current season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now that it is time for the reunion show, it turns out Yolanda is doing a lot better and has even told Bravo that she is almost fully recovered from the symptoms of Lyme disease. Radar Online shared that Yolanda will be making the big reunion show.

An insider revealed that Yolanda Foster is not going to miss the reunion this year and will be there for all of it.

“During the reunion last year, Yolanda was only able to film for under an hour because she was suffering from the effects of her Lyme disease. But this year she feels like it’s almost a full recovery.”

The source went on to explain that Yolanda is obviously upset about a few things that came up this season regarding her Lyme disease.

“With the Lyme disease controversy being Yolanda’s storyline this year, she is ready to fight back against accusations she has been faking it. Yolanda won’t allow the other ladies to bully her about the hell she has been through. She’s feeling much stronger than she has in months, and the ladies are going to be in for a big surprise when Yolanda lights into them.”

When it comes to reunion shows, the spouses usually show up for a little bit. Now that David and Yolanda Foster are getting a divorce, there is no reason for him to be there. David and Yolanda decided to get a divorce after four years of marriage. Yolanda will be on her own talking to these women, but it sounds like Yolanda is ready to handle it all. The source shared that Yolanda Foster doesn’t want to be the victim anymore. Some of the housewives have been questioning exactly how sick Yolanda really was this season.

Yolanda Foster recently shared that before being a housewife, she was a super mom. Now that she is dealing with a chronic illness, she has had to miss a lot of things when it comes to her kids, including ball games and runway shows. Yolanda is still fighting hard though, and it sounds like she is finally seeing improvement.


Fox News shared that Yolanda’s ex David has allegedly been saying that she is actually exaggerating her illness. If this is true, then that would explain why Yolanda is feeling so much better now that it is time for the reunion show, and that she needs to get back on the show full-time so that she will have a great income again.

A source shared that Yolanda’s ex David, and his family, both think that Yolanda likes the attention from being sick. A lot of people do give her extra attention with what is going on. In reality, Yolanda doesn’t have a legit diagnosis and has been trying a lot of different kinds of treatments. The source went on to explain what David thinks about her doing the show.

“He didn’t understand why Yolanda wouldn’t leave the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ if she’s in so much pain and so tired. He’s famous and private and rich, so it was frustrating that Yolanda wanted to do this show so badly.”

Sources have recently reported that Yolanda Foster only started the show to help out her daughters Gigi and Bella with their careers. If that was the plan, then it has worked out for her because they are both doing great. Now Yolanda is going to need the paycheck from the show as well.
