Yolanda Foster is taking to her Bravo Blog to share information about her family and dish on her day celebrating David getting a star on The Walk of Fame. Yolanda says neither her, Lisa or Giggy should be expecting to get a Star anytime soon, because The Walk of Fame isn’t for wannabes. Read what else Yolanda had to say below.
Yolanda writes, “I am excited for you to finally meet two of the most important people in my life. My father died when I was seven years old, so my brother Leo and I were raised by our extraordinary single mom, Ans, who dedicated her life to both of us. Our life was extremely humble so at an early age she taught us to work hard with great pride and integrity. Getting out of my little town in Holland to provide for them was one of my greatest accomplishments.
Watching myself goof around with my brother just makes me so happy because no one knows me like that guy does, and even if I don’t see him for a year, our banter continues exactly where it left off. People probably perceive me as a bit boring, because I am a little slow in the humor department but it’s just hard for me to get jokes when they’re told in English. I am always the last one to get it. Still today after speaking English for 30 years, I cannot translate all the fun little words I use in my own language — and boy do I enjoy my sense of humor in Dutch! Nothing better than a good laugh and giggling over a whole bunch of nothing.
Anyway, even though my whole family lives far away in Holland, it has always been a priority for me to keep them part of the most important moments in our family and my personal life. Gigi’s graduation and David’s star ceremony were two of them. Unfortunately, my sister-in-law Lisette and my nieces and nephew were stuck in school and unable to join us.
I had never been to a star ceremony celebration but, as you can imagine, we had an incredible day celebrating my husband and his 40 years of accomplishments in the music industry.
To me, he is my love, the extraordinary man that nursed me through the darkest year of my life while battling Lyme Disease. But today we are celebrating the music genius and the extensive body of work he has created for the world to enjoy. He is one of the most brilliant musical minds of our time and has created the soundtrack to our lives. After 16 Grammys, one Emmy award, a Golden Globe and three Oscar nominations, in 2010 he was inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and I was just so excited to be out of bed and by his side to see him get his well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was a very exciting and memorable day spent with our big, unconventional family and a few close friends. Thanks for letting me brag about my hubby for just a little bit.
Sorry Lisa, but neither Giggy, you, or I will ever be considered for a star or nominated for being a Beverly Hills housewife. With all kidding aside though, I actually might be wrong about that. I guess these days, wannabes become famous for all kinds of crazy things. But at the end of the day we are all a bunch of clowns running around to make a living. It’s sad that people forget sometimes that there is a whole legitimate world of artists and actors out there that work their entire life, every day on perfecting their craft, but yet don’t get any acknowledgement for their extraordinary commitment to their profession.
Some might be working on being famous but my husband still works seven days a week to stay relevant in the music industry and trump his own lifetime achievements. He is always humble and understated, which is a quality I truly admire and respect in him everyday.
OK, sorry enough about my love, back to the episode. . .It’s hard to really know what goes on in Beverly Hills behind all the smoke and mirrors and lives full of pretend, but trust me when I say we all struggle with all the same issues you do.
Kyle and Mauricio seem great and are dealing with their crisis close to their beautiful family.”
