Kyle Richards Reacts to Yolanda Foster’s Divorce on WWHL: “She’s Struggling …

‘I didn’t mean her, just women in general!’ Kyle Richards backtracks on Watch What Happens: Live after criticizing make-up free Yolanda Foster.

During the season six premier of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, the former actress made unkind comments about Yolanda, who admitted feeling suicidal amid her three-year struggle with neurological Lyme disease. ‘I’m actually really surprised to see Yolanda, she does not look good at all, I mean she’s got nothing on her face, at all.Tuesday’s season 6 premiere aired just hours after Yolanda Foster and her husband David announced they will be divorcing, and the episode hinted at signs of strain in the marriage. “If it wasn’t for my kids, I would have jumped out the balcony,” a tearful Yolanda confessed to her friend Angie Simpson of battling Lyme disease. “It’s trying to get out of bed every day for my kids.

During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.’ A patron at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills spotted the music producer there on Sunday afternoon, telling ‘There was no sign of Yolanda’. However, while speaking with HuffPost Live on Monday, Kyle Richards clarified those comments, insisting that the 51-year-old ‘100 percent has Lyme disease and is really suffering.’ The 46-year-old added: ‘There’s no question about that at all, so I really want to be clear about that because there have been people thinking I doubted or questioned it.’ The star has been documenting her health journey on her Instagram account, traveling to countries such as Mexico and Germany for experimental treatments, and trying everything from time in a hyperbaric chamber (the medical use of oxygen at a level higher than atmospheric pressure) to ancient treatments such as ‘ozone,’ pumping oxygen into the body. ‘I think they [Yolanda’s co-stars] were taken aback a bit by her dramatic posts on Instagram, which sparked all that stuff, but I mean, she is very sick and struggling every day just to hang on,’ Kyle said. I know they need me, but I can’t participate.” Yolanda and David, who were married in 2011, may now be separated, but they were still together when Tuesday’s episode filmed.

When asked about her time working with British actor Hugh Laurie on the medical drama House she said he was ‘obsessed’ with getting his American accent correct. Viewers of RHOBH have watched Yolanda struggle with her health over the past three years, following her Lyme Disease diagnosis back in 2012, and she has sought treatment from around the world. However she did acknowledge that some of the treatment her friend has undergone seemed a bit suspicious: ‘She was going off to Korea and Germany and Mexico and all these cockamamie treatments.’ She also mentioned visiting the Lyme Disease Gala with Yolanda, and hearing everyone share their similar stories of others – including doctors – not understanding and even doubting their suffering, calling it ‘so frustrating.’ ‘I got married so young [at age 18, divorced four years later before remarrying in 1996] and had my kids so young, so that was the only actor,’ she said. In the episode, Yolanda maintained that she wasn’t letting her disease affect her husband’s life too much, but hinted that they were not spending much time together. “He’s a man.

On February 7, March 6 and April 5, Yolanda was getting treatment for Lyme disease while David was aboard a private jet and marking the occasion on Instagram. ‘My wife loves a love note more than she loves a piece of jewelry,’ he said. ‘It is actually harder to do a love note than a piece of jewelry because I got to, like, sit down and really think about what I’m writing.’ Foster has been married four times and has five daughters while former supermodel Yolanda is a mother to Gigi 20, Bella 19 and Anwar 16 from her first marriage to Mohamed Hadid. Yolanda had to excuse herself from the party because of health issues, causing even more remarks from the assorted guests – including Lisa Vanderpump …

There’s been bad blood between Yolanda and Vanderpump, 55, in the past, and despite the British star indicating it was all water under the bridge, she took a few pot shots at her costar. “I’m not that close to her. She kind of turned on me,” Vanderpump said, before going on to say, “But I have to let that go because the most important thing now is that she is not well.” “I kept thinking there was a mistake and I didn’t believe it,” Kyle said of first learning of Kim’s arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April. “I was just in complete, utter disbelief to be honest.” At her birthday party, Rinna affectionately got called out for having her hubby (Mad Men alum Harry Hamlin) listed 10th on her speed dial.
