Taylor Armstrong Clarifies Her Yolanda Comments: “I Was Concerned She Had a Misdiagnosis”

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?

    We have it on good authority, that Taylor Shana Hughes Ford Armstrong is not an “authority” on what constitutes an illness just because she once sold medical equipment. she is an authority on alleged spousal abuse, conning people out of money & pretending to be someone she is not. Having been close to a person who suffers from neurological problems & receiving a diagnosis of MS, there is always that one person who enjoys giving an arm’s length medical diagnosis. Meaning, unless you have the letters M.D. behind your name you don’t know crap.

    Shut up Taylor, Shana, moron…… your not entertaining and I for one would be happy to never hear your name again. Take a little air out of those lips and you will come down off your high horse.

    Anyone else think Taylor needs to just move back to COlorado and stay there.

    Yo has severe psychological problems I think her marriage was going down the drain a long time ago and this so called illness got David to stay by her side a lot longer than he would have. David is a pig (fabulous musician) four wives but never has time for them. I only ever saw them be kind to each other right when she supposedly got her diagnosis. When there is money involved Dr’s are happy to provide whatever the patient is looking for. The leakage in her silicone looked bad but that is NOT what made her sick. No one even knew who Yo was prior to the HW;s. I didn’t who the hell was Yo Hadid? She had her 15 minutes od fame and now it’s over and she needs to fade into the woodwork. She and Shana both need to take a long walk on a short pier….. go away!!!!

    Wow. Taylor was drunk, like she always is on film and wanted some airtime. It’s indeed possible she actually cares that Yo may be misdiagnosed but that isn’t the way it came off on tv. She brought up the selfies in an obviously disparaging way so even if somewhere in that wet brain of hers she was truly concerned she didn’t pick her words right.

    Everyone so obsessed with selfies of her on her good days. Look at her actual face on the show. Does she look like the picture of health? No! She looks totally different from the first 2 seasons. She is sick!

  • michers

    Taylor is never concerned for anyone else, ever. She looked like pure poop on WWHL the other night. Whoever she pays to touch her face should be fired.
    This one is always going and giving opinion when its not her place to – is she doing as a viewer or acting like she knows things when she has no clue? Its pretty bad when Lippy Rinna even says this comment from her is bullshit.

    • I agree. Taylor really only cares about herself and getting back on the show. She knows now that she has to suck up to other cast members so that she will be invited to their parties and events. That’s the only way she can get her ugly mug on camera

    This is a shocking moment when I agree with Taylor. Yo has clearly been misdiagnosed and is being taken advantage of healthcare providers who cater to the worried well. My own diagnosis from my sofa is that she was suffering from the silicon leakage and perimenopause/menopause. Half the damn symptoms she describes are perimenopause–hot flashes, brain fog.

    It just breaks my heart that she’s dragging two of her kids along for the ride and is shooting them up with who knows what. I just wish Mohamed would step in.

    • michers

      I can agree to someone stating misdiagnosis but it depends on what other BS they are pushing with that kind of comment and how they are putting it out there. Duck lips just sucks, IMO .It was clear when she had her five minutes this season that she just wanted to be ugly, and find somewhere/way to get in the with the ” cool” kids.

    • omg

      Dragging two of her kids along for the ride? Wow. That’s an amazing accusation.

      • Shipp

        omg – so “Wow…..amazing accusation”. But, you feel free to drag Kyles minor daughter into a conversation, on the other thread, when it had absolutely nothing to do with the conversation. Interesting….

    It seems that Yo is mistaking negativity with actual concern. I believe Taylor.

    • Shipp

      Taylor said what everyone else was thinking.

      • Shipp

        correction – what MOST everyone else was thinking.

        Yo still has her die hard fans who believe the crock of crap she’s pushing. Just sayin’

        • Jarlath

          I love how the Lemon Queen has made this “invisible Illness” her storyline but then claims it’s a private matter … GTFO!
