Even when Yolanda is congratulating her co-stars, she makes it all about her, “My first call out is Kyle‘s line about 20 years married in Beverly Hills being like 100! That line made me smile, because it’s true. I have not gotten there, but I can say as a hopeless romantic, it was always my intention. One thing I will carry for the next hundred years are the good memories that each experience gives us and the hard lessons that later become gifts! Congratulations to Kyle [Richards], Mauricio, Lisa [Vanderpump], and Ken!”

Moving on to her talk with Lisa Rinna about Munchausen, Yolanda shared, “I feel reluctant, because even though it is hard to look back, the truth is that I’ve let it go. I don’t have an ego in this or the energy to hang on to negativity. The short of it is that I felt tremendous disappointment in hearing the women continuously cast doubt on my health journey especially that of my children. It doesn’t feel good. But it’s real life, and I will only seek to control what I can. The best apology I could hope for is changed behavior, so let’s see what the future brings.”
Yolanda went on to say she chose to share her “not so glamorous” journey because those suffering from invisible diseases, like Lyme disease, need help. “We become victims of criticism, as shown in my own group of friends. I hope to shine light, bring awareness and be a voice for those who can’t be heard,” she said. “Google might provide you with information on Chronic Neurological Lyme disease, but it will never provide you with wisdom – that requires experience.”
“Heart doctors treat the heart, bone doctors treat the bones, and brain doctors treat the brain. Who does one call when it all falls apart at once?” she asked.
(An expert on menopause?) “Who do you call when your body gets invaded by this silent killer called Lyme disease? Where do you go when you have been suffering, and the medical community tells you your disease does not exist, so your insurance company does not have to pay for your treatments?”
Yolanda made it be known that she is not afraid of “uninformed people” being judgmental or “nasty and uneducated comments” on social media. She warned, “They just encourage me to fight harder and make my voice louder.”
“I’ve chosen to turn a mess into a message and use my platform for this cause. Yes, fashion, jewelry, shoes or handbags would be more rewarding for some. Not for me,” said Yolanda, “because I accept the cards life has dealt me, and I understand the higher purpose of my journey.”
Yolanda said finding a cure is “a mission” that requires all she has. “I feel like I operate on a different vibration, though, so it’s hard for me to comprehend a lot of the negative thinking around all of this,” she added.
“The other day I heard a line in the news… It said that where there is fire there is always wind (speaking on recent California fires). Wind is the number one cause of fire. Somehow this line completely resonated with me and gave me a visual of the conversation I saw Lisa provoke about me. If we do not produce the wind, we can avoid the fire,” preached Yolanda. “The last thing I will say on tonight’s show is, all of us represent such blessed lives. Use celebration time to celebrate. I hope to join all of you very soon.”
