From one Housewife to another! Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer opened up about Yolanda Hadid’s exit from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“I think Yolanda is a very warm, down-to-earth, wonderful woman. And I think right now she just needs to take a break. She needs time for herself,” Ramona revealed to Us Weekly.
Yolanda, who publicly battled her Lyme Disease on season seven of RHOBH, also had to deal with her marriage crumbling before her eyes at the end of the season.
Ramona believes that Yolanda just needs to focus on herself after her difficult year saying, “She went through a lot of health issues, a lot of relationship issues. And I think she just wants to spend time with herself and just take care of herself and her family.”
Ramona herself has been through her fair share of ups and downs on RHONY as her marriage to former husband Mario Singer imploded.
As for Yolanda’s decision to walk away from the spotlight, Ramona gets it saying,“I can understand that because the show is — it can be very all-encompassing and overwhelming.”
Yolanda announced her exit from RHOBH on Instagram saying,“I would have loved a more graceful exit than “Season 6″ but sometimes we don’t get to control the ending of the chapters in our life………….. I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is a new entry and with that in mind, I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home……….. Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past four years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I’m excited about this CHOICE and look forward to the next chapter of my life……………… #RHOBH #TimeToSayGoodbye with #Gratitude @evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv #WWHL.”
I love seeing Housewives support each other. So many Housewives have been through some tough times during the last few years, so it’s great to see them support each other.
