As Yolanda Foster enjoyed the company of her co-stars, including Kathryn Edwards and Kyle Richards, her husband, David, chatted with a friend, admitting he was unsure if he and Yolanda Foster could get back to the way they were.
During last night’s show, Yolanda Foster and her co-stars were seen flying to New York City, where she was scheduled to appear at a Lyme disease gala. However, while the trip was supposed to be a good one, it now appears to have been the beginning of the end for the former pair.
“I guess the only thing constant in life is change, and boy did I experience change in 2015,” Yolanda Foster wrote in her Bravo blog on March 15. “I fought to live, I loved, I lost, I missed, I hurt, I trusted, I made mistakes, but most of all, I learned…and with that knowledge I choose to move forward, one day at a time.”
On December 1, 2015, after four years of marriage, Yolanda Foster revealed she and David were parting ways. Prior to her marriage to David, Yolanda Foster had been married to Mohamed Hadid, and the former couple shares three children, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar. As revealed on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6, both Bella and Anwar are also suffering from Lyme disease.
“A divorce, regardless of how it happens, is still the closing of the chapter, a separation from your life partner,” Yolanda Foster continued. “We can’t help but feel the loss and wonder when and how things went wrong. Long-term illness brings challenging hurdles to a home, a family and a marriage. It affects many lives, but I have to believe we’ve all done the best we can. Rather then getting stuck on what went wrong, I choose to focus on what was right and cherish the many great memories we shared.”

Also in her blog, Yolanda Foster addressed her decision to formally change her name back to Yolanda Hadid once her divorce from David is finalized. According to the mother of three, her decision to revert back to Hadid instead of her maiden name was due to her children’s wishes.
“I chose to keep my married name for my children when their father and I separated in 2000. It was important to them and we decided this as a family,” she explained. “When I married David, I honored his and went by both. I was Yolanda Hadid-Foster, and now I have dropped Foster for obvious reasons. Honoring my children’s wishes on this subject is important to me.”
Months after Yolanda Foster announced her divorce, her former partner, David, reportedly went out on a date with actress Selma Blair. According to a Radar Online report earlier this month, the possible new couple was spotted at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, California, and were also joined briefly by Caitlyn Jenner, who just happened to be at the restaurant at the same time.
