Yolanda Foster may have been the picture of peace on prior seasons of the RHOBH, but not anymore. Recent reports claim the Dutch beauty is ready to take on everybody who had something to say about her battle with Lyme disease this season.
It’s official. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has finished production for its upcoming reunion special. With so much drama going down between the ladies this season, fans can expect an action-packed affair. In addition to the regular cast members, the reunion featured a few cameo appearances while Yolanda “came ready to fight.”
An insider told Radar Online that the biggest drama went down between Yolanda Foster (Hadid) and pretty much everyone else who has doubted her this season. In fact, Foster is the one cast member who arrived “ready to fight” as she confronted her cast members about her Lyme disease and the Munchausen rumors.
“She looked each of the women in the eye that had questioned her Lyme disease diagnosis and told them they were horrible for doing that,” a source told the outlet. “This was a side of Yolanda viewers haven’t seen.”
Yolanda Foster had particular venom for Lisa Vanderpump, whom she “tore into” because she “questioned her kids’ Lyme disease.” While Vanderpump attempted to diffuse the situation, she only made things worse and added more fuel to Foster’s outburst.
“Lisa kept telling Yolanda to calm down, which only made the situation more tense,” the source added.
In addition to Lyme disease, the topic of Foster’s divorce was also treated heavily during the reunion. Yolanda attempted to keep a strong demeanor throughout the sensitive discussion, but it was clear that the break up still affected her deeply.
As far as cameos are concerned, fans can expect to see Kim Richards make an appearance at some point during the reunion. Fortunately for Kim, she was actually paid for her appearance on set, although she didn’t receive anything for her spot on Watch What Happens Live.
“Kim was paid to do the reunion, so she agreed to do it. She wanted to be paid to do Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live last week, but was told no,” the source stated.
Despite her status as a part-time cast member, the source revealed that Kim played a large role during the special. In particular, the reality star worked on her relationship with Kyle Richards. During the entire season, their relationship was strained in light of Kim’s problems with substance abuse.
“[Kim is] working on her relationship with sister Kyle, and that the two are in a good place now,” the insider shared. “There were tense moments with Lisa Rinna because of their bitter past.”
Speaking of Rinna, E! Online is reporting that the lasting feud between Rinna and Kim was also a major talking point for the ladies. Apparently, things got so heated that Kim eventually broke down and cried during filming.
“Kim Richards broke down crying at one point over how much she said Lisa Rinna had hurt her,” a source told the outlet. “Lisa Rinna apologized to her.”
Along with Kim, Brandi Glanville also made a short appearance for a pre-taped portion of the special. The other cast members present at the reunion included Kyle Richards, Kathryn Edwards, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson.
According to Reality Tea, filming for the special lasted all day long, with the women starting at 7 in the morning and going until 7 at night, the result of which was an exhausting day of production that even Cohen had a hard time getting through.
Despite the arguing and emotional exchanges, the insider went on to admit that it was more productive than last season’s reunion. Thankfully, it appears as though some of the ladies were able to resolve their differences and move on.
“Overall, the reunion was rough. There were a few walk-offs,” a source shared. “But it was not as vicious as last season.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continues Tuesday nights on Bravo.
