The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to have some fresh faces in the upcoming season, one of those will be Housewife, Yolanda Foster. Yolanda is married to David Foster, a grammy award winning music producer and songwriter. Before the premiere of RHOBH, Yolanda spoke to The New York Post about some of her personal health issues and struggles.
Yolanda revealed she suffered from depression after a difficult birth of her third child, Anwar, 13 years ago. During delivery, Yolanda’s son had an allergic reaction, and in the ensuing panic, her back was broken in three places. She also found a tumor on her thyroid a few years after her son’s birth. Luckily, a surgery determined the tumor was benign, it was still a huge scare for Yolanda, whose mom is a breast cancer survivor. “Thank God she is still alive today. But it has been in the family,” she says. As for her own health, she admitted she “did have a scare and all the drama that comes with it.”
Yolanda has been a long-time friend of Lisa Vanderpump’s, and she also revealed that besides Lisa, she built a great bond with Brandi Glanville while filming the show!
Yolanda also has a daughter named GiGi, who has taken after her mom who was originally a model in Holland. GiGi signed with IMG models and just did a stunning photo shoot for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. GiGi is just 17-years old!
