Yolanda Foster's Shocking 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Moment Isn't What You'd Expect

When it comes to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, sometimes you just can't win. In the season premiere Yolanda Foster dared to attend Lisa Rinna's birthday dinner despite feeling horribly ill, and the group's response was kind of bizarre.


Yolanda has been battling Lyme disease since 2012 and despite every effort to find some relief, her health appears to have declined severely. While the women openly discuss the fact that she never leaves the house and doesn't feel well enough to socialize, they were pretty darn critical when she actually did show up to Lisa's intimate soiree.

From the fact that she wasn't wearing a stitch of makeup to her coughing fit and inability to stay for the duration of the evening, the rest of the cast had a lot to say. People, give the woman a break. If you were battling a debilitating illness you wouldn't feel like throwing on mascara either. Can't we just appreciate the gesture of Yolanda trying to celebrate her friend?

Maybe we took it the wrong way, but it just felt like the other Housewives weren't quite as sympathetic toward Yolanda as they could have been. Let's not kick the woman when she's down.

It appears as though Yolanda's health battle will be the focus of her story line this season, although we're curious to see if any footage is edited in a different light now that she has announced her divorce from David Foster. This season looks as though it will be her darkest yet.
