Yolanda Foster: ‘I have lost the ability to read and write’

‘RHOBH’ star Yolanda Foster reveals lyme disease took away her ability to read and write.

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star opened up about her battle with Lyme disease in a heart-filled blog post, in which she describes the frustrating affects she has been experiencing. “It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back just to watch and see life go by without me participating in it,” the 51-year-old mother of three wrote. Although Foster described the debilitating changes the disease has caused her, the reality star hasn’t given up hope and has made it her “life mission” to find a cure. “As tired and hopeless as I feel at times, I have an undeniable spirit that will continue to fight and travel the world until I have the proper answers,” she wrote. “I keep reminding myself that I was given this task for a greater purpose.” Foster shared a photo of herself Monday on Instagram at the Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital in Singapore, where she captioned the photo: “I guess God gives his hardest battle to the strongest soldiers.” Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60% recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back.” Other than passing references to her illness, Foster’s ongoing battle with the Lyme disease has largely been avoided in the current season of Real Housewives. “The most frustrating thing is that there is medical data on Lyme and spirochete infections going back all the way to 1908, but yet we still don’t have proper diagnostic testing, a vaccine, or a cure for Lyme disease while we are living in the United States of America, the most extraordinary country in the world,” Foster wrote. Talking to the New York Post on Sunday, Jan. 18, Hibbard revealed contestants sent evil texts, informing them of their imminent death and telling them they’ve picked out “fat-person” coffins to bury their bodies in. Calling the show a “fat-shaming disaster,” Hibbard said she only didn’t abandon her place in the program because she was brainwashed to feel “so lucky to be there.” “I know that one of the contestants’ children became very ill and was in the ICU,” Hibbard said. “He was allowed to talk to his family, but he didn’t want to leave, because the show would have been done with him.” Once at the ranch, contestants are thrown instantly into a 5-6 hour-a-day workout regimen. “My feet were bleeding through my shoes for the first three weeks,” she said.

And according to Hibbard, trainers enjoyed seeing contestants collapse mentally and physically. “They’d get a sick pleasure out of it,” she said. “They’d say, ‘It’s because you’re fat. Look at all the fat you have on you.’ And that was our fault, so this was our punishment.” Hibbard revealed her own health was severely compromised by being on the show. “My hair was falling out,” she said. “My period stopped.

Not to mention the mental torture. “They would say things to contestants like, ‘You’re going die before your children grow up.’ ‘You’re going to die, just like your mother.’ ‘We’ve picked out your fat-person coffin’ — that was in a text message,” she said.
