Andy Cohen responded to Yolanda on Twitter, writing, “We love you @YolandaHFoster #RHOBH.”

Yolanda was a full-time cast member since she joined the show in season three. Viewers followed her battle with Lyme disease, her daughter’s GiGi and Bella’s modeling careers and even witnessed the demise of marriage to David Foster.

Last season, her cast mates debated whether or not she was actually sick and Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump argued who was responsible for bringing up the word Munchausen, as most of you remember.

Update: Sources tell TMZ that Yolanda decided to leave the show because she was demoted from being a full-time Housewife.

Production sources tell the site that Hadid was offered a role as a “Friend of the Housewives,” to give her more free time to address her health issues. She saw the role as a demotion and refused to take the part.

Bravo is not angry about the split and has let Yolanda know she is still welcome to appear on future episodes… as a friend.

Will you miss Yolanda?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
