Yolanda Foster’s (extremely confusing) health struggles are front and center on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While some castmates are rallying around Yolanda with words of support and encouragement, others are questioning the extent – and even the validity – of Yolanda’s many symptoms. Alliances are indeed being formed. And despite her “Lyme Brain,” Yo seems very clear about who’s on her team!
After thanking fans for their “unwavering support,” Yolanda expresses compassion for Eileen Davidson’srecent loss. “A big hug to Eileen and Vinnie for their loss of the amazing Dick Van Patten. I know how much they both loved him. Having lost my father at an early age, I have great empathy. The loss of a parent is profound at any age.”
Post-confrontation, Cynthia shares, “I was shell shocked, and honestly could not believe what had just happened. I didn’t know what to do, and I felt lost in the moment. This was my first physical altercation, and before I could process or react, the fight ended as quickly as it had started. An argument is one thing, but to actually get physical with another woman is a disgraceful situation.”
Whether she’s exaggerating the details of her Lyme disease or not, Yolanda Foster certainly has a loyal ally in fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Eileen Davidson. And who wouldn’t want Eileen (You Beast!) on their side during tough times? This week, Eileen discusses how Yolanda’s illness stirred up her own feelings of family loss. She also weighs in on Kyle Richards’desire to keep her family mess swept cleanly under the carpet. Hint: Eileen thinks it should stay there too!
“It’s another emotional week here as Vincent and I continue to deal with the loss of his dad, Dick Van Patten,” begins Eileen. “It was a bittersweet moment visiting his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame. The outpouring of love and support from so many people whose lives Dickie touched has been a tremendous experience. We continue to try to heal after this loss and try to look at the world like Dickie did: hopeful, humorous, and upbeat. But, as we continue with the grieving process, it’s hard not to reflect on all the other losses my family has gone through.”
This just in: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did not name their son John. Or Mark. Or James. But they did apparently consult their Bibles when choosing their new son’s moniker: Saint. (Praise Yeezus?)
Despite rumors that the couple would stick with their trusty pocket compass when choosing their second child’s name, Kim said, “I think it’s so stupid,” in a June interview. “I don’t like South West. North will always be better.”
Season 4 of Tamar & Vince premieres this week. “Tamar is back in the studio recording her latest album Calling All Lovers. With a new album comes a tour to promote it and Vince is by her side every step of the way to offer his wanted – and unwanted – advice, pushing Tamar further in her demanding career to make sure her dreams of superstardom become a reality,” shared WEtv. “When not on tour performing, she is off to co-host the hit daily talk show The Real by day and rehearsing for and performing on Dancing with the Stars by night. The stakes have never been higher and Tamar’s schedule never this booked. What happens that ultimately stops her in her tracks?”

In reaction to her divorce, Yolanda shared with ET, “It’s just life. I’m sure you’ve all witnessed a break-up. It’s life. Work, my health, his job, the children — life is overwhelming for everybody.” Noting that it’s “a lot of work” holding it all together, Yolanda says she is just trying to put “one fut in front of the other” right now.
In the world of Reality TV, most “celebrities” are on a constant mission to stay relevant. In the world of Vicki Gunvalson, she seems on a constant mission to shake off the stank that is Brooks Ayers and his ongoing I Have Cancer, For Reals! storyline. But is she going about it in all of the wrong ways?
Although excited for Lisa Vanderpump’s appearance at a Dodger’s game and for Lisa Rinna’sbirthday celebration, Eileen admits she was really in no mood to celebrate on this week’s episode. She reflects, “Unfortunately, it’s hard for Vince and I to watch it [the episode] without getting emotional. Recently, we lost my father-in-law Dick ‘Dickie’ Van Patten after his health had been declining. I’m so grateful to be his daughter-in-law and to have him be our sons’ grandpa. I was lucky enough to be by his side in the hospital for much of the four weeks until he passed away. He was such a tremendous light in the lives of the people he loved and knew but also the millions of fans who grew up watching him. And, as you may imagine, it’s still a difficult time for our family.”
