Yolanda Foster, who stars onThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is seemingly at her wit’s end with the swirling rumors about her mysterious Lyme disease diagnosis. On Tuesday night’s episode of RHOBH, Yolanda was alerted to the fact that co-star,Lisa Rinna spearhead a conversation with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump(Eileen Davidson comes in on the tail end) about how her longtime Lyme disease battle could be all made up in her head. Foster took to her Bravo blog to shoot off some heartfelt thoughts and case facts for the confused coffee klatch quartet.
It was pretty apparent, Rinna wanted to make Yolanda’s illness the topic of discussion at the gathering. Yolanda’s Instagram shots were brought up. Rinna seemed to scratch her head as she pondered, why Yolanda posted a series of ailing Instagram shots of herself and then on the heels of these, added fun-filled vacay pics of herself and hubby, David, during an adventurous Canadian trip. Rinna asked the ladies, “How is she on a boat? Why the pictures? and What’s her message?” Rinna could not grasp, why Yolanda has presented such a sick front all along and could then, turn around, and have a rip-roaring time, as if she had been suddenly cured.
Eileen Davidson is not about to get caught in the middle of Munchausen Soup. But in this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she walked right into a steaming hot broth of it being stirred right up – by friend and castmate, Lisa Rinna. In her blog, Eileen comments on the more lighthearted moments of the episode, but does warn that the SH*T is about to hit the fan when it comes to the endless drama ofYolanda Foster’s health, and the myriad of questions surrounding it.
“Ken [Todd] seems to be having the best birthday week ever, right?” jokes Eileen. “He finally got his miniature horse, and his reaction was pretty priceless. But wait, there are two of them! And like he said, twice the poop. Hmmmmm. Maybe not the best birthday after all?”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills the seeds of doubt concerning about Yolanda Foster‘s mysterious illness were officially sewn; woven into the delicate silk fabric of her friendships with almost invisible stitches anchoring tiny beads of suspicion into the internal boning of a couture gown. So – is it Munchhausen syndrome or is Lyme?! OOoOH Goody!
Additionally Yolanda’s motives appear more complex. Could she be amplifying her illness to save a sagging marriage? Possibly give herself a purpose now that her days of a world-class beauty are over? Is it a reaction to Empty Nest Syndrome (do not give Caroline Manzo any ideas!). Yolanda’s Lyme symptoms and the crazy-ass lengths she is going to for treatments seem decidedly elevated from a mere cry for attention. They seem connected to her self-identity.
“I’m sure it’s confusing to some of you as to why I attended the wedding without my husband and two kids. I love Nicky so much, and the idea of not witnessing her walk down the aisle was weighing heavily on me,” writes Kyle. “My husband is the one who pushed me to go. He kept telling me that I will never get that moment back. He said that all families go through tough times but they WILL be resolved, and if I didn’t go we would all look back with regret.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Lisa Rinna lightheartedly meanders through her blog in this week’s reflection on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Giddy up! She gushed, “What a fun episode this was to watch! So many really laughable moments went on this season, and it’s great to see them among some of the drama and speculation we’ve been seeing already.”
On her mani-pedi day with her two daughters, Lisa shares, “Of course, as you know, I love the time I spend with my girls. Oh, the conversations we have! The sassiness coming from Delilah Belle as she tells me her curfew is now 11:10. What is that? Who did that? Why? Was that a Harry Hamlin thing? Was it Delilah Belle? Was it me? I want to know who came up with this 11:10 curfew for her, because it’s just weird. Clearly, the art of negotiation is alive and well in our household.”
Come on, Eileen! Tell us how you really feel. In this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, brokedownTaylor Armstrong reappeared on the scene. And it wasn’t only big hats and big lips she brought with her! Taylor also had some big opinions about sick-selfie-healthy-selfie Yolanda Foster. Eileen Davidson didn’t take too kindly to Taylor’s comments about her ailing friend, though. Eileen opens up in her blog about her feelings on the shenanigans at Ken Todd’s 70th birthday party, Lisa Vanderpump’s little horse debacle, newcomer Erika Girardi, and much more.
Bemoaning her fate as the lone female in her home, Eileen reflects, “I was laughing (crying on the inside) seeing Vince, Jesse, and me in the A.M. trying to get ready for the day. In a house full of boys, I am the lone female voice that calls (screams), ‘Do your dishes! Empty the trash!’ Maybe our house is haunted. I’m the ghost; nobody seems to see or hear me!”
We have a new batch of reality star sightings for you this morning!
