Yolanda Foster, housewife on RHOBH, has remained remarkably fit and youthful, despite her age. At fifty years old, the dreaded “f word” for many celebrity women today, she is able to pull off the slinkiest gowns and seems to always look flawless. However, it seems that while on the outside she is beautiful and glamorous, the inside is not the same.
For the past few years, Yolanda has been fighting Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease’s symptoms are very much similar to the flu, and can range in severity. Yolanda has reported at different times feeling like she could not think clearly or form thoughts the way she had before. Simply speaking was difficult for her at times.
Back in February of this year, US Weekly reported that they were putting there house on the market, with Yolanda saying, “This is our dream home, but due to my battle with Lyme disease for the past two years I just don’t have the strength to run this almost 5-acre property anymore and should really focus on my recovery with as little stress as possible.”
It appears as if she still has not beaten the disease. Yolanda appeared on KTLA 5 Morning News, where she discussed her current state of health. “I am about 70% on a good day, so I still spend most of my days in bed. When I wake up in the morning my only mission is to find a cure for this disease,” says the RHOBH housewife. She has spent her time in different parts of the world exploring the medical options from holistic to traditional. While she still is not sure when or where she was bitten by the tick carrying the debilitating disease, she will not stop searching for a cure or fighting the disease.
