Yolanda Foster


“Character isn’t what you have, it’s who you are.”

“Don’t tell me you’re my friend, act like one.”

“I like to have fun, but I don’t play games!”

Birthday: January 11th, 1964
Sign: Capricorn

Yolanda was born and raised in Papendrecht, a small farmer’s town in Holland where she rode horses, milked cows and loved the farm. She grew up rather fast after her father passed away when she was just seven years old and, feeling the need to provide for her brother and her single mom, she became a dishwasher at the local Chinese restaurant at the age of 13. At age 16, she was discovered by world-famous modeling agent, Eileen Ford, and left Holland to become an international model living and working in Paris, Milan, Hamburg, Sydney, Tokyo, and eventually New York City. In 1994 she moved to Los Angeles and started her family with former husband, Mohamed Hadid, with whom she has 3 children, Gigi, Bella and Anwar. On the mystical day of 11-11-11, Yolanda married the love of her life, producer, songwriter, and 16-time Grammy Award-winner, David Foster. Yolanda juggles a blended family of her own children plus five stepdaughters.

    I am a big fan of Yolanda’s. I saw her daughter is an equestrienne, (as mine was, she rode about 6 months in Echten, Holland after graduating from high school) and I would like to ask Yolanda if there may be any possibility of Yolanda wanting to help me with a fundraiser for some carriage horses here in Antigua, Guatemala? I live in Guatemala, but will be in Los Angeles on the 21st of April until the 27th. If there would be any possibility of meeting with anyone from her team, so I could explain myself (and what I do for the horses) a little more in depth. Thank you so much, Suzanne

      Dear Yolanda,
      I have never sent an email to a person on TV before. But I was very touched by your post re Brandy’s difficulties and your remembrances of your own dark times. I have had a hard time myself. My husband suffered a mental break 6 years ago and though I tried to save our marriage – very much for the sake of our son – I was not successful. Now, my son’s father lives all the way across the country. It is so hard. Fortunately, I have created a new career for myself and am supporting our family. It is so odd to email someone I’ve never met, but but here I am. Thank you for not succumbing to the viciousness.

    It’s THAN, Yoyo, THAN!! You are making that mistake all the time – surprised, no one has pointed that out to you before!

    I’m not on Facebook or Twitter and I hope this gets to Yolonda. If she would get on the Lincoln County Newspaper in Maine today’s March 11, 2015 edition there is an article on Lyme Disease and they have a website and lots and lots of news. Perhaps one little thing can help her on this. Also I live in the Southwest in the winter and there is a disease here called Valley Fever and I wonder if she has been checked for that. The tests on it (also Lyme disease) come out negative a lot. I hope this helps.

    In the book by “Health Sciences Institute” —– “Miracles From The Vault” (Amazon.com ) there is a whole chapter on Lyme disease which is Very Interesting. The title of the chapter (page 410 ) is “Peruvian herb completely eliminates Lyme disease———————–no matter how long you’ve had it ” I think it would be well worth the read even if only a small fraction is gleaned from it. My best wishes for a complete recovery. Dee
