Yolanda shared the photo above on Instagram. “I am not afraid for you to see me for who I really am and what my days are really like. I have learned to love every part of me without apology… happy selfie – sad selfie, good days – bad days, with make up – no make up, boobs – no boobs,” she added. “I can only hope that by sharing this not so glamorous journey the millions of doubted and neglected Lyme sufferers will gain medical recognition of their illness and the appropriate treatment affordable for all. This is not a pity party, just reality with good intend. #InvisableDisease #ExplantSurgery #NotAVictemButAWarrior”
In her blog, Yolanda wrote, “I hope you all had a wonderful welcome to the New Year. I gladly said goodbye to 2015, officially the most challenging year of my life. I feel inspired and excited about a fresh start – 366 new days and 366 new chances for a full recovery and a life filled with love, health, and happiness!”
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared in a recent podcast interview that it’s hard for her to see photos of her kids having cozy family holiday time with LeAnn Rimes. Brandi claimed that she’s asked LeAnn in the past to please stop posting photos of her kids, but LeAnn does it anyway. Eddie came forward last night to say that Brandi was full of shit and had never asked LeAnn to stop. Well, game on says Brandi because she has proof that she did!
About Rick Hilton‘s claim that Kyle quit RHOBH, Kyle said she hasn’t talked to anyone, including Rick, about her plans. “The truth is, until the show is officially picked up, no decisions have been made.”
That said, Kyle admitted she didn’t want the drama surrounding Nicky Hilton‘s wedding aired, “It’s a hard show, putting your life out there. Obviously, there are things you don’t want out there. You don’t pick and choose. I think it came about because stuff came up about my nieces and the wedding. I really did not want those things in the show, but we signed up for this, and it is a reality show. There is no script, so what can we do? It is our life.”
Earlier this week Brandisat down with Nik Richie to dish on her new reality show, her old reality show and everything in between. Nik started the interview off way back at the beginning of Brandi’s rise to fame (aka Eddie’s affair with LeAnn) and she was candid, as always, about her grievances with their current situation. The two things that bug Brandi the most: the lack of a respectable amount of child support from Eddie, and the oversharing of photos of her boys by LeAnn.
Eileen Davidson managed to dodge most of the drama (what little there was) on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But she still breaks the episode down in her blog, commenting on everything fromLisa Rinna’s QVC hustle to Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction to she and Kyle Richardsleaving their hotel in the Hamptons. As for the not-quite-sober ghost of Kim Richards haunting their Hamptons trip, Eileen supports Kyle’s wish to save her own skin stay mum on the mess, but does admit “the topic keeps getting dragged out” no matter how much Kyle wishes it away.
Eileen calls herself out on letting hubby Vince see her dress’s price tag while packing for the Hamptons. “Having Vincent help me pack clothes with the price tags on? AMATEUR move! Lisa R. texted me when she saw this episode, ‘What were you thinking? You have to cut those suckers off!’ I’ve now learned: Always destroy the evidence. I won’t make the same mistake again.”
When asked if she’s enjoying being a real housewife, Erika shares, “I’ve had a great time.” Andy asks how her lawyer husband, Tom Girardi, feels about the show. “He’s so supportive,” gushes Erika. “I really have nothing negative to say. Everything is okay.” Andy quips, “Well, you’re only four weeks into it.”
The girls are packing, which means a secret and exalted Bravo ritual known as CLOSET TOURS!
First and foremost – unfortunately – we are in the mumu factory. Tucked deep in a corner of Beverly Hill is a tiny, cluttered, neon-covered, eye-searingly printed lair known as Kyle Richards‘ dressing room. Ironically one of the closet rods actually collapses under the kaftan weight and refuses to be put right. Girl – that’s a sign! Even Porsha, aged 7, refused to help Kyle put the bar back up – she shot mama a knowing side-eye that said, “Things happen for a reason.” MmmmHmmmm…
The highlights – OK, lowlights, are below. And no, we’re not bullying Brandi by PULLING direct quotes from her so don’t try it. It’s not our fault her truth cannons sometimes self-detonate!
First of all Nik is so freaking cheesy. He sucks up to Brandi hardcore and she takes the bait. Then they rehash every. single. dramatic moment of Brandi’s life, but I do like Nik’s voice and he asks insightful questions.
