Yolanda Foster is the resident Dutch on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but the former model is now a citizen of the United States! Yolanda took her oath Wednesday morning in Los Angeles, accompanied by her husband David and cast-mate/friend Brandi Glanville. Yolanda tells E! News, “As a little girl, it was always my dream to come to America.”
Yolanda has lived in Beverly Hills since 1994 while married to Mohamed Hadid and currently lives in Malibu, CA with her husband David! She adds, “I am living the American dream every day. I am so thankful. We worked very hard. We worked for everything we have in our life. We worked hard to get where we are today.”
Yolanda reveals that becoming a citizen will make life so much easier for her family. “When we would arrive in America, I would go in one line and they would go in another line,” she said about the inconvenience of traveling with her US-born children and having to be separated all the time.
Yolanda is also looking forward to voting for the first time in her life and being a voice in politics (and not the Housewife kind!). “I’ve never voted in my life. I left Holland right when I was 16 and I wasn’t eligible to vote and when I came here I wasn’t allowed to vote. I’m excited to go with my husband and discuss politics,” says Yolanda.
E! News reports that Yolanda shed tears while watching videos of Obama and listening to “Proud to be an American” at the ceremony! Congratulations Yolanda! It will all be shown on season four of RHOBH, as the cameras filmed the ceremony. Are you looking forward to seeing this?
