Who is ready for some reality TV six degrees of separation? We know that Linda Thompson is mother to Brandon and Brody Jenner from reality TV fame (including Keeping Up with the Kardsashians) but did you also know she is connected to RHOBH? Yep – the blonde beauty was the ex-wife of David Foster who we know as the ex-husband to Yolanda Hadid. In Linda’s new memoir titled A Little Thing Called Life, Linda paints a picture of what it was like being married to David, and to give you a hint it wasn’t pretty.
Back in happier times, Linda and David were quite the power couple in music. Linda was also once the girlfriend to the King himself: Elvis Presley! Linda is also a big deal in the music world on her own and was married to David from 1991 to 2005 where they collaborated in songwriting.
According to her new book, David was jealous of her history with Elvis which resulted in him being “jealous” and controlling.” Linda wrote that “David was clearly threatened by Elvis’s ghost and never wanted me to mention him.”
Linda also stated that David was jealous of Bruce Jenner and didn’t like him hanging around their home despite them sharing two sons together (Brandon and Brody.) Thompson states that David: “simply didn’t like Bruce being at the house as much as he was, even though his visits were brief.”
Thompson is an accomplished songwriter; however she alleged that Foster preferred her to play the role of traditional housewife: “At times, he had an expectation that I was there to serve and take care of him, to make beds and do housework.”
Linda continued: “He really and truly wanted to be treated like a king, not like a husband or father, which speaks volumes about what he was like to live with, as lovable as he could be.”
Yikes – looks like there is no love lost! David clearly enjoyed having the traditional wife which we saw in Yolanda Hadid on RHOBH. Yolanda loved playing the wife role and adored treating David as her king. It seemed that they had found their perfect match in each other until she fell ill which took a toll on their roles and suddenly David had to be the caregiver.
Seeing how Linda’s marriage to David was certainly paints a clearer picture of why David’s marriage to Yolanda fell apart after she fell ill. David also doesn’t have the best track record as he now has four divorces under his belt.
What do you think of Linda’s portrayal of David? What were your thoughts on him on RHOBH?
