After much speculation that Bravo was desperate to repair Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills after last seasons’ toxicity and Yolanda was fired, today she confirmed her departure. Yolanda implied she made the decision not to return, however a production source claims Yolanda actually quit because Bravo only offered her a ‘Friend’ contract instead of being a full-time cast member.

Bravo reportedly felt they were doing Yolanda a favor because a part-time role would allow her “more free time to address her health issues,” but the former Mrs. Foster was insulted by the consolation prize!
A source tells TMZ that Yolanda considered Bravo’s offer a snub. Apparently Madame de Munchausen did not approve of Bravo demoting her, because her JOURNEY is not boring – it is inspirational, necessary, eye-opening, educational, awareness-raising, and connected to a higher purpose. So how DARE Bravo request that Yolanda settle for being a ‘Friend Of The Housewives’.
Yolanda reportedly attempted to negotiate by offering Lyme-Free storylines – like finding love again – in exchange for returning as a Housewife, but obviously that didn’t work out and it seems Yolanda opted to leave the show instead.
Let’s be serious – Yolanda mostly wanted to return for a platform to promote her Lyme memoir, “Believe Me” – and ain’t nobody – producers, cast, or viewers – excited about feigning interest in that
crap. Can we say YAWN-landa?!
Bravo is reportedly
relieved fine with Yolanda’s decision to part ways with Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (production was allegedly more than sick of her divatude), and told Yolanda she was welcome to appear in future episodes as a ‘Friend,’ if she was so inclined.
Who exactly would Yolanda appear as a ‘Friend’ of? She isolated most of her cast members with last season’s antics like lying about her marriage, incessantly bailing on filming,’ constant lecturing and hypocrisy, and, of course, the Munchausengate!
I for one am THRILLED to no longer have to endure Yolanda – or her ‘side-kick’ Brandi Glanville, who now has no remaining tethers to RHOBH. Let’s hope Bravo improves their casting and brings in uber-wealthy fabulous ladies who know how to have fun!
