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.
Reflecting on this week's episode Yolanda discusses her treatment for neurological Lyme disease and also the treatment of some of the Housewives towards each other.
"I am the shell of the woman I used to be so the hardest thing for me is to accept my limitations and deal with the feeling of inadequacy due to not being able to do all that I used to," Yolandawrites in her Bravo blog. "I truly miss me being me!"
As if she wasn't already lemony and white jeans and perfection,Yolanda Foster proves she's even more lovely by bringing attention to Lyme disease. After having difficulties with memory and speech during the most recent season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda sought medical treatment and was diagnosed with chronic neurological Lyme disease.
It' no surprise that Yolanda is being honored for her work in spreading awareness of the tick-borne disease which does not yet have a cure. As if she wasn't already classy enough, now the beautiful, shushing Yolanda has an important cause to champion. You go, girl!
