Despite her crumbling marriage and her questioning co-stars, there’s no doubt in my mind that Yolanda Foster enjoyed every second of attention she got this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Yolanda live-tweeted during the reunion (because, attention), thanking Eileen Davidson for being a “good friend” and shading her doubting co-stars for not visiting her when she “dropped off the planet” because of Lyme disease.

To Eileen, Yolanda tweeted, “Thank you for being a good friend and standing up for what’s right, I admire your integrity. #LoveYou”
Yolanda went on to Tweet, “My baby girl @bellahadid just said it all; If they had visited you, they would have understood how sick you were. #Clarity #Truth”
Truth. Ha. Like the time Yolanda was sitting up (after not sitting up for 2 years, I’m sure) and reading (after not reading for 4 years, I’m sure, as well). Then, when Daisy announced she had visitors, she slumped down and pretended to be sleeping.
Shockingly (sarcasm) the subject of Yolanda‘s health came up at the reunion. When Lisa Vanderpump said Yolanda goes up and down hormonally, Yolanda boasted that her hormones are perfect because she has a pellet in her butt.
Yolanda made a point to say the “bioidentical hormone pellet” is natural and urged her co-stars to ask Daisy about it. Um. Call me crazy, but I wouldn’t take health advice from someone who wrote a chapter in the book Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys: Professionals Writing on Life, Love, Money, and Sex.
What YoYo fails to acknowledge is that “natural” does not mean “safe.” A quick Google search brings up several articles that debunk the benefits of Yolanda‘s butt pellet, which costs hundreds of dollars a month.
“Promoters of compounded hormones claim that their products reverse aging, enhance sex, prevent cancer and, unlike FDA-pproved commercial hormones, have no risks or side effects. It all sounds pretty good. But like most things that sound too good to be true, it’s important to separate fact from the myths propagated by clever marketing,” wrote Lauren Streicher, MD, in an article titled Buyer Beware: “Bioidentical” Hormone Myths.
Since the FDA doesn’t regulate compounding pharmacies, they can make whatever claims they want. So, they tell women what they want to hear – namely that compounded bioidentical hormones have fewer risks, fewer side effects, and are more effective than standard hormones even though there is no scientific evidence to prove that claim.”
