Yolanda Hadid knows exactly what Kathy Hilton is going through on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because she’s been in those shoes many seasons ago.
The RHOBH alum admits she feels “sorry” for Kathy amid her drama with Lisa Rinna.
“Well, the first season I went on, I was diagnosed with neurological Lyme disease and a lot of narratives that were created by the women… but those things were very hurtful. I was fighting for my life,” the former Bravo star told Entertainment Tonight.
“I feel sorry for Kathy because I been in her shoes,” she said of Rinna’s allegation that Kathy had a breakdown in Aspen. “I feel sorry [for] what it does to her family with Kyle [Richards] and Kim [Richards]. It goes deep, right? And why? Because you want camera time.”
When asked if she would ever return to RHOBH, Yolanda revealed why she has closed the door on the Real Housewives for good.
“I’m too sensitive,” she confessed. “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.”
Back in September, Yolanda admitted that RHOBH was not a good experience for her.
“It wasn’t a good experience for me. I think that women shouldn’t treat each other this way,” she said.
