Fans were shocked when the divorce between Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills‘s Yolanda Hadid and David Foster was announced via a joint statement last December. Cast members have talked about how they were surprised to. And now Yolanda says that she never saw it coming either.

“I didn’t know it was ended until Nov. 15. We had already wrapped shooting and the show as done,” she said on Watch What Happens Live last Tuesday.

Host Andy Cohen asked whether Yolanda’s Lyme Disease played a role into her divorce.

“You can’t underestimate how much it takes for a man to take care of somebody that’s sick all of the time. David didn’t change; I’m the one that changed. And I guess this is the outcome of that,” said Yolanda, and defended her ex against critics who are disparaging Foster for not being able to handle Yolanda’s illness.

However, after four years of marriage, Yolanda did admit that she felt “blindsided.”

“I didn’t think that was the end of the road,” she explained. “I would have hoped to wait until I got 100 percent well.”

David has asserted that the couple is still on good terms. He praises her strength in living with her illness. Yolanda has said that he will always have a place in her heart.

“If you stop making each other happy, you shouldn’t be together. My life has changed 180 degrees. In time, David and I are going to be great friends. Just because the marriage didn’t work anymore, it didn’t change the fact that I still love him,” she explained.

The divorce is not yet finalized.
