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.”

Eileen continues, “My sister Connie passed away a year and a half ago, and seeing Yolanda going through her illness…it’s hard for me not to be reminded of Connie. Because my sister tried to cure her cancer holistically, seeing Yolanda’s closet full of vitamins and supplements took me aback. But Yolanda is dealing with Lyme disease and not breast cancer, thank God.”
Eileen maintains in her blog that “Yolanda is a force. When Yo feels beaten down, it’s up to the people who care about her to continue rooting for her recovery. ‘Don’t worry about the beauty,’ was the quote that got to me this week. What an inspiration; doing everything she can to return to wellness.”
Turning to attention to happier scenes, Eileen laughs over Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump’s Italian follies. She comments, “Kyle and Lisa V. are a hilarious comedy duo. Watching them together cracks me up, especially when they take a ride in the Ferrari. Best quote ever: ‘Apparently, if you have a penis, you never get lost.’ I may have to steal that one from you, Kyle! Still laughing.”
But not all is perfect in the land of rose’ and butlers. Eileen admits, “As great as this vacation is, it takes a turn during the dinner, and not just because of the mosquitoes. It’s unfortunate that the issues around Nicky Hilton’s wedding and the invites (or lack thereof) were discussed in front of the kids.”
“It’s obvious Lisa V. cares about Kyle, and her intention is to stick up for her,” continues Eileen, “but it seems like discussion of some family dynamics may be best left private. Sometimes the best thing you can do for a friend is respect their boundaries, especially when it comes to family.”
