“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Foster revealed that she had been struggling on previous seasons of the show, because she had lyme disease. She learned of her illness while filming the show after experiencing some unusual symptoms. However, it sounds like she is getting full support from her husband. According to a new Bravo report published on March 26, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Foster is now revealing that her husband has been everything for her during her fight against lyme disease.
"The symptoms started four months before I married my husband, David Foster," says Yolanda while visiting “The Doctors” to talk about her lyme disease. "I started having a hard time multitasking, reading information...I didn't remember how to write the alphabet...One night, I woke up and I said to my husband, 'I feel like I almost passed to the other side.' Just talking about it still gives me goose bumps." Of course, she has shared some of her struggles on the show. When she confronted her co-stars about being her friend, she revealed that she had spent upwards of 9 months in her home in bed.
"Thank God for my husband. I just kept telling him, 'Babe, something is in my brain. I'm sick in my head. Keep searching.' He finally found a professor in Belgium,” she reveals. And it sounds like he has been very supportive of her. The couple has recently listed their home in Malibu to get a smaller space, because Yolanda can’t take care of the massive home by herself. Instead, the couple is thinking about moving to Beverly Hills.
And it sounds like David isn’t going anywhere, despite rumors of marital problems. "Just seeing his picture makes me emotional!" she says. "He's been extraordinary. You say when you get married, you stand by each other, and when it hits you...He's the guy that gets my antibiotics four times a day; he's the guy that did it, and he's the guy that stood by me, every night, 24 hours a day. And I'm blessed,” she reveals.
