Yolanda Foster has been very public about her battle with Lyme Disease. Now Yolanda is part of a new campaign to raise awareness for Lyme Disease, which affects millions of Americans each year. Yolanda has enlisted her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills stars to snap a photo for the ‘Take A Bite Out Of Lyme’ challenge, which is also supported by Dr. Oz.
“It takes a village, please pass it on…….. #WeMustFindACure #LymeDiseaseChallenge #TakeABiteOutOfLyme I challenge @Lisavanderpump @kylerichards18 @lisarinna @eileendavidson @brandiglanville2 @kimrichards11 @bravoandy @dr_Oz,” Yolanda shared on instagram with a photo of herself and the ever-supportive David taking a bite out of a lime.
The RHOBH ladies, plus other reality stars got in on the action to raise awareness. You can see the photos below! And if you want to contribute your own photo to the challenge, simply bite a lime, snap it, and caption it with #TakeABiteOutOfLyme on twitter or instagram.
In her Bravo blogLipsa Rinnaweighs in on the “Hunger Games” this week that was part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. She entered the reunion as a newbie, and with much trepidation. She hadn’t seen any of the ladies since filming for RHOBH had wrapped months before and says, “I could have gone another few months, or really, another few lifetimes without seeing them.” But see them, she did! And they lived up to her very low expectations about as well as she anticipated. “It seems some came in ready to toss out passive aggressive insults about how much better they were than the rest of us, and others came in with a more direct approach, shooting out insults the whole way through. Just as classy as I had anticipated it to be,” she quips.
Rinna first addresses the garbled, mumbly jab Kim Richards’attempted over Rinna doing a Depends commercial, which she claims earned her at least 7 figures. She says YES, not NO to 7 figure gigs! Meanwhile, Kim says YES to Diving with the Stars. And Drinking in Her Closet (allegedly). Apparently, as part of Rinna’s commercial contract, Kimberly Clark (Depends parent organization) donated a quarter of a million dollars to the charity Dress for Success: “a global not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Lisa adds, “The fact that I got paid handsomely and Dress For Success did as well is worth any teasing or taunting I may get. If ‘not taking pride’ in the jobs I choose means this worthy charity gets a hearty six figure check and some recognition, then so be it!”
Yolanda Foster hasn’t been able to blog much throughout season five of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills due to her struggle with Lyme disease, but she managed to write a doozy of a blog following part one of the reunion. The blog is more about Lyme disease, which she compared to the AIDS epidemic, than the reunion, however. Yolanda also told us a little story about another infection she is battling due to letting a baby cow suck on her chin.
Yolanda explained why she felt it was necessary to attend the RHOBH reunion despite her setback with Lyme disease, “I know the reunion is an important end to the season, so I felt the need to pull up my bootstraps and show up, no matter what. In my mind, keeping my commitment to Bravo and Evolution was very important, even though my body wasn’t ready to get dressed and all dolled up after living in my robe and pajamas for the past four months.”
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion filmed last week and many were confused about why it happened so early in the season – the reason: shooting was changed to accommodate Yolanda Foster‘s ongoing battle with Lyme Disease.
Yolanda, who says she suffers from a spirochete infection caused by Chronic Lyme called Lyme Neuroborreliosis, which has affected her memory and brain functionality, and has been traveling all over the globe for unconventional treatments in search of a cure. As a result, producers made “several changes” to the schedule in order include YoFridgidaire’s health!
As the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star shared in a blog last month, she has a chronic form of the disease Lyme Neuroborreliosis, which is a spirochete infection that affects the brain. Despite the fact that we’ve been watching Yolanda on our televisions for the past three years, she talked of her struggles to read, write, watch TV, or talk because her brain was “confiscated” and she couldn’t “process information or any stimulation.” Except for dinner parties.
Yolanda has been traveling to Asia for treatments with David by her side. The almost E.G.O.T. reveals he’s doing his best to stick by his ailing wife, because wedding vows love and all that!
Yolanda Foster has traveled the world in search of treatments and/or a cure for Lyme disease. Late December, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star suffered a “very serious” relapse, and she recently shared that she has lost the ability to read, write, watch television, or process any other kinds of stimulation. Somehow she’s able to tweet, text, and post pics on Instagram. #SideEye
Yolanda recently traveled to Singapore for a pricey treatment which is not FDA approved. While there, she shared pictures of herself alternating between lying in a hospital bed and hanging out with David Foster on the set of Asia’s Got Talent. Now home, Yolanda has shared several messages about her current condition – “I don’t remember what it is like to be normal” – and thanked fellow famewhore Kris Jenner for sending her flowers. Follow her journey below.
As a mother with 4 daughters Kyle is worried for her fellow-Housewife Teresa as she prepares for prison. “I can’t imagine what she’s feeling right now – every day must feel like a countdown,” Kyle expressed.
Personally I LOVED it when the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswould film at the incredible Malibu mansion that belongs to David Foster and his wife, Yolanda. The glass fridge, ocean views and personal lemon grove — it looked like it was out of a magazine. And when the couple listed it earlier this year for a jaw-dropping $27.5 million, housewives fans — me included — wondered why they would ever want to leave paradise.
There was speculation that it had to do with Yolanda Foster’s battle with Lyme disease, but now her husband is opening up and explaining why they are selling their dream house. And the reason, actually kind of makes sense.
