Erika Jayne came in to this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend of Yolanda Foster and she’s making sure she sticks by her through thick and thin. Erika reflects on this week’s episode, thankful to spend time with her ailing friend and feels everyone should be nicer to her.
Erika is happy that Yolanda felt up to walking down to the beach, “I want to start off by saying how happy it made me to get out to the beach with Yolanda. I almost forgot how pretty Malibu can be. It was such a gorgeous day, it almost made me miss my old Malibu home. She had not been on the beach in months, so this was really special. With everything she’s dealing with right now, she deserves some time to enjoy herself.”
She continued, “When Yolanda asked what happened after she left the party, I told her. The situation is upsetting to her, and she’s been through enough already. Like I said last week, we should be more sensitive when discussing other people’s children and the challenges they may face. But as her friend, I will look out for her.”
While I would typically agree that kids should be off limits – Yolanda is the one who made the bombshell revelation about the kids and put it out there in the public. So, naturally her friends are going to be shocked if this is the first they’re hearing of a diagnosis that happened more than two years prior!
Erika also thinks it was right for Lisa Rinna to face up to Yolanda for her part in the questioning of Yo’s Lyme diagnosis. “I think Lisa Rinna did the right thing to have a face-to-face conversation with Yolanda regarding her illness. Speculation and “chatter” about something so serious and personal is hurtful, and it causes division within the group. I’m glad they were able to talk it out one-on-one. Perhaps they can move on from here.”
She congratulates the couples on their anniversary milestones and commends Kyle Richards on her flexibility, “I do love Kyle for hitting a split! Werk, Mama!”
She’s hopeful that Kathyrn Edwards and Lisa Vanderpump will forgive and forget where Faye Resnick is concerned, “Kathryn and Lisa Vanderpump are united with their hard feelings towards Faye. It can be hard to let go of bad blood from the past, but they are three intelligent women, and I’m hoping they will be able to take a step forward soon. Time will tell.”
TELL US – SHOULD EVERYONE BE MORE CAREFUL ABOUT SHARING THEIR THOUGHTS ON YOLANDA’S HEALTH? SHOULD IT BE OFF-LIMITS TO TALK ABOUT HER KIDS’ DIAGNOSIS OF LYME?
