Eileen Davidson hasn’t been involved in the Munchausen drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season, but she has clearly taken a side. Davidson is in full support of Lisa Rinna, who merely felt bad about engaging in a conversation about Yolanda Foster’s illness. Someone from her group of friends had questioned whether she was suffering from Lyme disease or from Munchausen. According to a new Bravo report, Eileen Davidson is now revealing that she just wants her co-stars to settle the drama, forgive one another for the misunderstandings, and move on.
“If there is anything everyone should take away from this, it is these two things:
1) YOLANDA IS SICK AND NEEDS OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT.
2) LISA RINNA NEVER SAID THAT YOLANDA HAS MUNCHAUSENS”
“The only reason Foster ever found out about it is because Lisa R. told Lisa V, Kyle, and me that she felt tortured by “engaging” in a conversation that she did not start about Yolanda. She did not originate this, nor perpetuate it, save for telling us about it,” Eileen Davidson continues in her blog, hinting that she has not experienced a moment where Lisa actually questioned her co-star’s illness.
Eileen admits that she also convinced Rinna to be honest with Foster about the conversation she had with someone else. Rather than listen to her side of the story, Foster assumed that her co-stars were out to get her. Of course, she had been absent throughout the season because she was focusing on her recovery, so she may have felt a bit on the outside.
“I honestly believe that if Yolanda hadn’t been so separate from the group during her recovery, Lisa R. would have talked to Yolanda about it first, and there would be no issue,” Eileen Davidson reveals, adding, “I understand why Lisa R. wouldn’t name who said the “M” word in the first place. It’s definitely not relevant, because she said that Yolanda didn’t even know the person. That right there should say it all. This accusation didn’t come from anyone who knows Yo, or is important to her.”
It seemed like a big misunderstanding when the ladies started discussing Foster’s health. Rinna merely told her that someone had brought up the Munchausen idea to her, but she didn’t want to believe it. Foster understood the comment as being that her friends didn’t believe her, so she went on the defensive. And Davidson simply wants the ladies to hear one another’s stories so they can put this to bed and move on. It is no secret that Eileen Davidson just wants everything out on the table.
“It’s very frustrating for me, because I care deeply for both of these women. I want forgiveness all the way around, but I’m afraid I definitely don’t see it coming any time soon,” Davidson points out, hinting that the drama will only get worse from now on.
Last night on Watch What Happens Live, the mother of three sat down with Andy Cohen to discuss the show. As it turns out, Andy is under the belief that the other housewives want to believe that Foster is faking her illness. This has been a trending topic in the Real Housewives franchise for a while, especially following Brooks Ayers’ cancer scandal last year. She told Cohen that she doesn’t disagree with his statement. She points out that the ladies may just be ignorant like many people in the world when it comes to illness and Lyme disease. While Eileen may be on Rinna’s side in this case, she’s never questioned the fact that her co-star is indeed sick and needs their support.
What do you think of Eileen Davidson’s hope that the drama will be settled? Do you understand why Foster is so angry with her co-stars?
