Even before The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has hit the screen, there are controversies galore in the show. The first issue that seems to have caught the attention is Yolanda Foster’s fight with Lyme disease.
Yolanda had been struggling with the disease and the previous season saw her health deteriorate. This, however, isn’t something that the other housewives are very sure about. They feel that Yolanda Foster is faking the seriousness of the disease in order to gain sympathy and footage.
It was Design and Trend who first brought this to the notice. It was Kyle Richards who first broached this issue in front of the other cast members. A preview was released that showed Kyle Richard discussing Yolanda Foster’s disease.
Yolanda had spoken about her Lyme disease in detail, talking about the harrowing time when she couldn’t read, write or watch television.
Yolanda Foster had previously thought that she has a lot of support in the other housewives of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, the sixth season opened her eyes to the fact that not only aren’t they there to see her through her fight with Lyme disease, they are in fact discussing her faking the whole thing.
Yolanda has gone ahead to talk about how her two children Bella and Anwar are also suffering from chronic illness and how traumatic the situation is. The least she could expect from the people who have seen her so closely was some support.
According to Christian Post, Yolanda Foster has decided to go ahead and campaign for the disease, so that there is some headway for the cure and might save her children from suffering from Lyme disease.
When Entertainment Tonight interviewed Kyle Richard and asked her about her behavior, she said that they are confused about the disease that Yolanda is suffering from.
Yolanda has gone through a lot of treatments and all for the disease, but no one understands how sick she is or what treatments she is actually undergoing.
Kyle Richard is always one to give fire to a controversy and she did the same this time round as well when she mentioned that there are some who have different reasons for doubting Yolanda’s disease.
Yolanda feels hurt when she finds out that Kyle Richard along with the others are joking that she might be suffering from the Muchausen disease where the person starts faking about the symptoms of a particular disease.
Yolanda Fosters feels terrible in the preview that is being circulated when she realizes that the other cast members thinks that she has a psychological condition where she needs to feign a disease to get attention.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 is bringing in Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards as guest stars and Brandi stands by Yolanda and talks her out of her miserable feelings.
Brandi Glanville says that the other housewives in the house are very weak and hence they are looking for an easy pick. With Yolanda being sick, they have fund an easy prey and hence have started to pick on her.
Brandi Glanville knows exactly how it feels to be picked on in the series and to be cornered out. It was this reason that prompted her to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She had decided to quit the show because she felt completely alone.
Andy Cohen, the creator of the show knew how important Brandi Glanville was for the upcoming season since she had a huge fan following and hence somehow decided to bring her on board as a guest with an offer she finally couldn’t resist.
