Yolanda Foster chose not to share her thoughts and opinions on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on BravoTV.com but on her own blog set up on WordPress, which she had never done before. Why didn’t she want to put her blog on the network’s website as usual? It seems that she didn’t want the network editing her post.
In her WordPress blog post, posted after Tuesday night’s episode aired, Yolanda said some surprising things, one being that Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump could learn how to behave from Lisa Rinna.
Yolanda also shared the entire email that she sent to Kyle and CC’d the other housewives on. In the email, she accused Kyle of stirring the pot just to manufacture drama for the show and therefore trying to be a co-producer of the show. Yolanda also defended at length her level of participation on the show by sharing the agreement that she made with Bravo prior to filming the sixth season, hinting that Kyle complained to producers about her role on the show.
In reference to the lunch at the Mexican restaurant after their SoulCycle exercise session, in which Yolanda chastised Kyle and Lisa V. for whispering about her drama with Lisa Rinna, Yolanda wrote that Kyle and Lisa V. were stirring the pot.
“Our hug felt right and authentic to me at that time……. Strangely enough even that was doubted and judged by some…even though Rinna and I moved on……… Kyle and LVP felt the need to stir the pot one more time…… Which felt extremely insensitive to me. In my culture whispering in the company of others is considered rude……”
Yolanda Foster surprisingly wrote that at least Lisa Rinna “owns her s**t,” unlike Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, who aren’t upfront and honest.
“Yes, Lisa R has come into this group of woman and consistently labeled people without any qualification to do so but at least she owns her s**t and I trusted we moved on. LVP and Kyle could take a lesson from her in that department as both of them are the Queens of brushing things under the carpet and holding grudges!”
Yolanda also acknowledged that she was wrong for linking Lisa R. and bipolar disorder.
“I solely used the word bipolar for argument’s sake but I realize now that it seems like an eye for an eye, which was not my intent and I apologize if it came across that way.”
Later on her blog, Yolanda addressed the email that she sent to Kyle and CC’d the other housewives after the Mexican lunch. On Tuesday’s episode, the housewives read off parts of Yolanda’s email. In the parts they read, Yolanda scolded Kyle, who at the lunch had pointed out Yolanda’s hypocrisy regarding still being mad at Lisa Rinna for linking her and Munchausen syndrome when she herself linked Lisa R. to bipolar disorder for not having compassion. Lisa Rinna called Yolanda’s email “passive-aggression at its finest” and “projection.”
In her blog, Yolanda shared the entire email, which actually includes her talking about her agreement with Bravo and Evolution, the show’s production company. In several lines, Yolanda makes clear that she does not appreciate Kyle’s expectations of what she should be doing for the show. Yolanda says that she’s helping the show to the best of her ability. Yolanda even tells Kyle, who she thinks is trying to act like a show co-producer, that there are two new housewives, Erika Girardi and Kathryn Edwards, to help make a great season.
“C.C is the producer of our show and as far as i know he is doing an excellent job. I do believe that the show is a collaboration of all of us but trying to co-produce with such a desperate measures felt extremely unauthentic to say the least…I also would like to clarify with you that my deal with Bravo and Evolution was based on ‘the best of my ability’ whether that is filming 3 or 30 times this season so i would appreciate it if you lower your expectations of how much i should participate in filming…i am already feeling unaccomplished as it is, so please don’t make me feel like i am not holding up my part of the bargain here…So Please trust me when i say; I am doing the best that i can! Like you I want to make the best show possible but I can’t do more then i do for reasons you will probably never understand. We have 2 strong beautiful new housewives (Erica & Kathrine) that given a chance could help make a great season.”
Why did Yolanda feel the need to explain her contract with Bravo and Evolution to Kyle? Why did Yolanda feel as if Kyle was making her feel that she wasn’t pulling her weight when it comes to making a good season? Did Yolanda hear that Kyle was complaining to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers about her level of participation for the season? Did Kyle, in fact, do so?
On Wednesday morning, Lisa Vanderpump tweeted that her own blog will be posted on BravoTV.com, hinting that she has heard about or even read Yolanda’s WordPress blog.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kyle Richards, who live-tweeted Tuesday night’s episode, told a viewer that she has “no clue” why she has been singled out by Yolanda Foster.
