Yolanda Foster has been defending her and her children’s diagnosis with Lyme Disease to everyone this season including her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Taylor Armstrong. Taylor was surprisingly critical of Yolanda and her illness during an appearance on RHOBH at the beginning of the season. When Taylor stopped by Watch What Happens Live! she clarified her comments to Andy Cohen. Taylor contests that her remarks stemmed from genuine concern for Yolanda.
“I hope that no one else has to experience what she was experiencing. I feel horrible for her, but at the same time, I was concerned she had a misdiagnosis because I have family members who have had neurological diseases. They were misdiagnosed for a very long time, and they ended up having multiple sclerosis. So I was just concerned. It really was out of concern. I wish the best for her,” Taylor explained.
If you recall at Lisa Vanderpump’s Birthday party for Ken, Taylor questioned Yolanda’s diagnosis to Lisa Rinna saying, “It seems strange to me. It’s like happy selfie sick selfie. I don’t like seeing the whole needle in the arm thing. It seems like there’s a lot of back and forth and I don’t understand. I smell a misdiagnosis.”
Yolanda has been vocal about her illness and in her Bravo blog this week, opened up about the questions she faces regarding her health.“The debate on this very personal matter has affected me deeper than I was willing to admit. Even though my reactions are to others’ actions, it still doesn’t make it right for any of us women to get tangled in this unpleasant web. It is time for me to let go of any negativity. I feel for not only some of the women in this group but for those in my life who choose to judge my journey. In order to get to the finish line, I must address forgiveness and practice love starting in my own heart.”
I’ve never doubted Yolanda’s illness, but I do kind of agree with Taylor that perhaps Yolanda could be misdiagnosed. I’ve had family friends be diagnosed with Lyme Disease, and it has turned out to be multiple sclerosis. Whatever Yolanda’s diagnosis I wish her nothing but good health and happiness!
Do you think Taylor was legitimately concerned for Yolanda? Or was Taylor trying to cause drama? Do you think Yolanda could have a misdiagnosis?
