In her weekly blog, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna claims that she wanted to be there for Yolanda Foster as she received her award at the Global Lyme Alliance. She explains why she wasn’t in attendance and also tries to clarify her confusion over Chronic Lyme Disease.
Lisa shares, “I do wish I could have been at the Global Lyme Alliance in NYC to see Gigi present Yolanda with her award, but I had to remain in LA to work on a new talk show pilot. I wanted to be there, because I always want to support a friend when asked, but even more to just soak up the entire experience. It looked like a lovely, inspiring event and quite informative, too.”
She tries to clear up her position and feelings on Yolanda’s suffering. “Up until recent months, Yolanda wasn’t around us very much, nor was she forthcoming with giving us information when questions would come up. I want to make it quite clear and go on the record to say that I in no way doubt anyone’s chronic illness or severity of what they go through on a daily basis. My deepest sympathy and compassion goes out to everyone suffering with their health. What has gone down between Yolanda and me is in no way associated to anyone else suffering from chronic illness, and I apologize to those of you that took any part of my questions meant for only Yolanda and attributed them to your own personal journey to wellness. My intentions were to never insult or slight any community of people that are suffering in any way, shape or form. Chronic Lyme is confusing for most doctors I have spoken to. So for us to be confused is quite normal, I believe. I have always been concerned for Yolanda and what she is going through.”
Lisa adds, “I was happy to see some of the other Housewives there to support Yolanda and found some of their conversations to be rather interesting… Let’s just leave it at that, shall we?”
Rinna was very serious about wanting to abide by the laws of Dubai. “Let me tell you that the thought of being hauled off to a Dubai prison for shooting off the double bird was all too real for me. In no way was I going to wear horizontal stripes from head to toe in a 110-degree desert for the rest of eternity. So, I packed my ten fanciest kaftans and off I went promising myself I would do my best not to break any of their laws! HA!”
Once again reminding us that things are about to heat up, “Things are just getting started in fabulous Dubai, and we are halfway around the world…Help me! Pray for me! On that note…”
