Yolanda Foster is taking to her Bravo Blog to dish on the drama this week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Yolanda says she believes that Kim and Kyle Richards are driven by jealousy and insecurity. She also explains exactly what happened after Carlton’s lunch and why she cannot pretend like nothing happened with Kim and Kyle.
Yolanda writes, “I’m not very diplomatic and wear my heart on my sleeve. I cannot fake, make nice, or even pretend nothing ever happened between the Richards sisters and I. They insulted my integrity and they continue to do so. I always wonder, what drives women like that? I assume the sad answer is insecurity and jealousy.
As a woman, I am very proud of Kim’s personal accomplishments and will always root for her sobriety. I don’t particularly care for the way she spoke to me and repeatedly told us how to behave at an afternoon of adult women’s gymnastics. I just don’t agree with her lack of wanting to resolve issues, but rather choosing to swipe them under the carpet and fake OK for the day! I certainly wasn’t trying to be rude; I just have a strong need to communicate on a deeper level to get clarity. I had hoped to resolve some issues by the end of the afternoon so that we could finally move on but I guess we continue this superficial bulls— for a little while longer.
I strongly believe that a lot of problems in this group would disappear if we started to talk to each other rather than about each other.
After our lunch at Carlton’s house, Kyle, or someone in her camp, told the press that Brandi, Lisa and I bullied her. Really?!? The definition of bullying is: to use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants.
It’s such a strong and serious allegation. None of us has any malicious intent when it comes to Kyle. I agree with Lisa, she could have easily retracted that statement and cleared up the situation by tweeting about it but she chose not to.
Brandi brought up Mauricio’s situation at lunch because it was all over the press and everyone was talking about it — except in front of Kyle. Mauricio seems like an honorable man to me, so the truth lies between him and God. Yes, I insinuated that where there is smoke there is fire, because I believe that to be true. As a woman who experienced infidelity firsthand, I will always advise my girlfriends to only trust their husbands 95 percent and leave 5 percent for human error.
Anyway, the conversation was never meant to hurt Kyle in anyway, but rather to show her support, share experiences, and give her an opening to talk about it. Isn’t that what these girlfriend lunches are for?
The statistics that I have read show that 70 perecent of married men admit to cheating. So let’s not sit here and pretend everything is so perfect because life just isn’t!
No matter what my issues are with Kyle, I feel for her and I truly wished the Umansky family was spared this public embarrassment, as their children did not ask to be in the public eye and I can only imagine how much pain this caused their beautiful girls. My heart goes out to them and I only wish them love while they continue to recover from this low blow.”
