Real Housewives’ Yolanda Foster Calls Out Lisa Rinna For Suggesting She Has Munchausen Syndrome
On Tuesday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. In the past few years, Foster hasn’t been featured on the show because of her poor health. When asked about Lisa Rinna’s comments that Foster may be suffering from Munchausen Syndrome rather than Lyme Disease because of rumors from her hairdresser. Foster said, “Are you going to listen to what the hairdresser says? Because if you’re my friend, you should go to the hairdresser, like, ‘Are you crazy?’ ”
Foster did not known Rinna’s hairdresser. Rinna initially did not state a source for her comments, citing her hairdresser only in a later interview.
Host Andy Cohen said that he thinks the other Housewives “want to believe you’re faking your illness.”
Foster didn’t disagree. “There’s such ignorance when it comes to invisible disease and millions of people are suffering with those problems, of family members, friends and people out in the world judging them by the way they look,” she said. ‘So, maybe they’re just voicing what a lot of people are thinking.”
Fellow guest Craig Ferguson suggested, “I think people get frustrated and they want it to be something they can explain away so that it doesn’t frighten them. So they get, ‘Oh no! She’s just making it up. Or maybe just b-ch-s be jealous.”
Foster cited Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards as her most supportive former costars.
When asked how single life was treating her, since the last time Yolanda was on camera Foster was soon to be divorced from music producer, David Foster, she said, “You know, I don’t know. I haven’t tried it yet. I’m still at home trying to get well.”
Foster has two daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid who are both supermodels dating big names in the music industry (Zayn Malik and The Weeknd respectively). About her daughters’ relationships she said, “As long as they treat my daughters with great respect and they love them, you know, it’s all good for me.”
