Not only is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Yolanda Foster classy to the hilt and lemon-y fresh, she's also now an American citizen. That's right! The former model and wife of music producer David Foster took her oath for the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services yesterday along with 4,000 other new citizens.
Not surprisingly, Bravo's camera crews were on hand to capture the memorable moment as YoFo shared her excitement with family and close friend and co-star Brandi Glanville. Was the RHOBH star wearing her signature white jeans and Hermes belt for the occasion? No, but close enough–she was clad in a tailored white suit with an American flag scarf. Of course she was…she's always perfectly attired for any major life event!

Speaking to E!, Yolanda shares her excitement about the happy occasion. She tells the site, "As a little girl, it was always my dream to come to America. I am living the American dream every day. I am so thankful," adding, "We worked very hard. We worked for everything we have in our life. We worked hard to get where we are today."
The reality star reportedly wiped away tears at videos from President Obama and "Proud to Be an American" singer Lee Greenwood (that song gets me every time!). She shares that she's very excited to finally be able to vote. Yolanda says, "I've never voted in my life. I left Holland right when I was 16 and I wasn't eligible to vote and when I came here I wasn't allowed to vote. I'm excited to go with my husband and discuss politics."
Yolanda also was thrilled to have Brandi in attendance, sharing, "My girlfriend is here. My really good friend showed up separating her from my other friends." Ouch? Maybe? Was that a dig?
Taking to Twitter, Yolanda expressed her joy while on the way to the ceremony, writing, "On my way to become a American citizen, Wohooooo so exciting!" followed by her daughter tweeting, "Congratulations to my mom!! She becomes a US Citizen today! So proud!" Yes, YoFo, congratulations!
