Don’t ever expect to see Yolanda Hadid on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ever again.
In a recent interview, the former Bravoleb made it clear that she could NEVER return to RHOBH after her former c0-stars called her a liar amid her battle with Lyme Disease.
“The first season I went on, I was diagnosed with neurological Lyme disease, and I struggled every day of the season,” the 58-year-old told Entertainment Tonight. “I kind of stayed on because I thought, ‘OK, I’ll be better next season.’ I didn’t know Lyme disease was a life sentence. And now, here we are 10, 12 years later, I’m still struggling with it.”
She continued, “I always thought, ‘Next season, I’m gonna do better. Next season, I can fully understand.’ So I was never [working] with a full set of brains on the show.”
During the end of Yolanda’s tenure on RHOBH, she fought with many of her co-stars over her battle with Lyme Disease. Some of her former c0-stars questioned if she was really sick and even accused her of suffering from Munchausen syndrome, which Yolanda said was “very hurtful.”
“Not just hurtful to me, but hurtful to my children and my family who loves me,” she explained. “And they knew I was fighting for my life. So, from that perspective, it wasn’t a good experience for me. And, you know, that was the taste I was left with.”
When asked if she would ever return to the Real Housewives, Yolanda said, “No, I wouldn’t.”
“It was an experience you take on, but at this point in my life, I couldn’t,” she elaborated. “I’m too sensitive. I couldn’t deal with that back and forth-between women. It’s not my communication style or something that’s good for my life.”
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 12 reunion airs Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
