Yolanda Hadid Leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills


Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid took to Instagram today to announce that she will not be returning to season seven of the show.

In a statement, Hadid wrote, “I would have loved a more graceful exit then “Season 6″ but sometimes we don’t get to control the endings of the chapters in our life………… I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my@Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery and bring back the privacy within our home……….. Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I’am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life……………… #RHOBH#TimeToSayGoodbye with #Gratitude@evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv#WWHL”

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.

  • Jen

    Yolanda has more class, Grace and intelligence than all the remaining BH Housewives put together.

    • Jody

      Yes Jen. I agree wholeheartedly with you.

      • One Rotten Egg

        Totally disagree with yo being full of class–NOT. Where was her”classy” post when all those people got attacked in Florida? Oh, that’s right, it was Lisa Vanderpump who showed hewhat class is like. YO was aid a jealous greedy person by what Shen is played to the world in my opinion. yep, we all have them. Hope she finally recovers though.

    • @ Jen. My sentiment s exactly. Grace & class .

    • She certainly held herself a step above most on this show, no doubt. I will miss her…..sad to see her leave.

    • I agree with Jen 110% Yolanda, is a true Lady and there are a lot others I would love see go and Yolanda stay. I pray she gets well and finds true happiness. And a man that will truly love her.

  • Max

    Good riddance.

    • I comply

    • Anonymous

      Totally agree with you. Good riddance and LONG overdue. I, for one, will not miss her pity party, her jiffy pop selfies, her faux lyme disease, etc, etc, etc. The only thing this woman needs is a flea and tic collar.

  • VaNonna

    Will I miss her – NO. Thank goodness, long overdue.

  • Suze☕️

    I can’t say I’m sorry she is gone but I won’t say anything bad about her.

    • VaNonna

      Hello Suze, I tried not to as well. Though I did get a chuckle when she said to bring back privacy in her home.
      Just a quick hello to you and hope you are doing well!

      • Suze☕️

        Hi yes good and bad days but changing treatment so hopefully not as many side effects! I hope you are good to! Xoxoxoxo

    • Jody

      You just did.

      • Suze☕️


  • Espistar

    I’m glad she’s going. I was sick to death of hearing about her journey. Hopefully, she can recover in peace and more importantly in private. Not sorry to see her go.

  • patricia

    Don’t wish her any harm. But I am so glad she will be gone. Sick of the story line.

  • Jody

    For Yolanda’s sake I’m glad she’s leaving. When she first joined RHOBH I was concerned for her knowing the history of this wretched group. God bless Yolanda for what she contributed spiritually. Best to you, Yolanda.

    • Misty K

      I T A Jody . .. I will miss yo

      • Good bye Yo I’m glad your leaving. I hope Andy isn’t giving you a spin off like you and Ericka wanted. I will not watch it.

    • I will miss her! 🙁

  • Rain

    I LOVE YO!! Always been team Yo. But I’m glad and relieved she’s leaving. She needs to get her life back on track, not to mention all the venom thrown her way !!! Love you YO ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • Misty K

      So much venom women are cruel to each other

      • Rain

        i think she will find her footing and be happy xoxo and I think now that she’s gone , everybody will just wish her well and let go of any issues they had with her.

      • I don’t see any cruelty here. It is no different than any other housewife leaving that posters were not a fan of simply because she had been ill. I have not been a fan, but never have I been cruel. I always thought she was a pompous, condescending bitch.
        While telling others what to wear in certain locales, when to go to bed, what to do to entertain themselves on vacation, how to speak to one another, she was speaking offensively at Joyce’s dinner party, acting like a mean school girl toward Joyce, making sure whoever wasn’t part of her “dream team” knew it and basically telling everyone how to behave, even to the point of what they were allowed to recall about her king before she even met him. Her advice for everyone, minus herself, was to do everything in the way she said it “should” be done. I think she is the biggest hypocrite, maybe minus Luann, of all the housewives. She expected everyone to understand her journey, without giving the least thought to trying to understand that maybe those who in her announcement should have “asked me the questions” might have felt as though they were being intrusive asking all the time. She went all over the world preaching without ever one time filming or bringing attention to the ACTUAL victims of chronic illness minus, again, herself. I have never once seen her at a charitable event that wasn’t hosted by someone else, including her husband. The fact that her “journey” sent her first class all over the world from limo to private jet to exclusive doctor, back to limo-private jet, had very little, IMO, to do with the victims of illness who actually suffer at way more than the illness itself. She never once shed light on the struggle of parents who battled daily just to get their child into a doctor, much less to get them tested for anything. I am pretty sure she never offered them a ride on her private jet, or in the private limo where she then was practically carried up to the podium to give her oh so humbling speech.
        So, if you believe that to be cruel….I wish the very best for her. I sincerely hope she recovers and never relapses from the silicone contamination. I genuinely wish the absolute best for her children, and in fact, her entire family. That has exactly nothing to do with who I think she is.

        • Misty K

          I didn’t say your cruel . I don’t know why you took that personally . Sorry that you did

        • starr

          3 D’s, I bow before you. You are GREAT.

          • Wow, I am humbled for real. I wanted to be a writer, truthfully. But one can not insure an income with a dream, and I had my 3 children young, 21, 24 and 26. I wrote poetry mostly, but I started a novel, many people do I hear, finishing the novel is what I always thought was what would give me the title of “Writer.”
            But, about 4 years ago, I wrote the poem inside each of my Daughter’s BD cards, and my S-Daughter, ( I gained 2 Step Children, adding to my blessings many times over, when I was 28 ) heard me say that after she got her card. She was in town on her BD that year and had the card in her bag, which brought joyful tears to my eyes, she took it out and said “when a person writes and finishes a poem like this, they have the title already, you are a Writer.”
            So, when anyone tells me I have said what they would have said, or wanted to say, it really has much more to do with the writing of it than the opinion of it. So, thank you so much, Starr of the Skye.
            How goes it over your way? I have no memory till after about noon, and even tho the time stamp on here shows after the noon hour, it is 10:40 A.M. here now. So, If I ever knew I don’t now recall where you live or if it is hot or humid there? It was super hot last week here, but got windy and actually cold last night. That is desert weather. How have you been? Good I hope.

            • Suze☕️

              3D writes the most beautiful poems. She wrote one for me and made me cry it was so beautiful! Love you Lady xoxoxoxox❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

        • Suze☕️

          Well said I don’t wish her harm but just because she has left it doesn’t mean I have to start saying good things about her! I just won’t say bad things.

          • Aunt Bee

            I feel the same way Suse. I just got so tired of “the journey”. Now just get rid of Rinna and ED and bring Kathryn back with Erica,LVP, Kyle and see what the new season will brings.

        • Oh, BTW, Suze, even tho I am sure you already know, the reference to ironed sheets was never a dig at you. It was the memory of when Joyce set up that beautiful trip at the compound in the desert. Yolanda gets to her beautiful room, and first thing she says is “where are my ironed sheets and something else which I think….meant where is the little point they put on the toilet TISSUE in hotels!! I am not sure, but it was some uppity comment as though Joyce herself should have ironed the sheets and pointed the toilet tissue! Unfuckingbelievable. Yolanda was a total bitch the entire trip, telling Joyce it was her party and she should “run it.” At the same time she was telling her HOW TO RUN IT, which meant if she didn’t get in the pool she wasn’t being a good hostess. Hey, maybe I am weird, ( for sure I am ) but I always thought on vacation we do WHAT WE WANT. Not what some pompous bitch wants us to do. Brandy too, on & on & on about Joyce getting in the pool. Joyce was relaxing on the lounge chair, maybe she was tired, ever think of that, Brandy? Not everyone gets false energy from xanax with a many wine chaser. And, I know most folks get zoned out from benzos, but I am backwards, even though they stop the panic attack, they don’t make me sleepy. Or hi. Just a little extra calm energy because when it does come time that I need one, I am so hyped up, calming down is at the correct energy level, I know TMI. Anyway, I would like to sleep on pressed sheets just once, and go very first class for a few weeks. First class jet, hotel, food, clothes, just more money than I likely spend in a few years to live on, for one trip.

          • 3D’s that is exactly the YoYo I saw 2 a mean girl she has class thing is it is all fake
            YoYo is the biggest fake there is she grew up in a small apartment and wanted out and she did just that she is not very bright as you can see with her Journey
            she not only acted better than everybody ,she actually thinks it… but hangs with people lower than her maybe that is where she gets the I am better than yous from
            I am happy she is moving on maybe she thinks they will beg her to stay

          • Suze☕️

            It’s ok I coped with it! I can’t help it if I like my ironed sheets but I I was staying elsewhere I would never mention it! Xoxoxoxox

        • So well stated, 3D’s Forever. Cannot disagree with one single thing you wrote.

    • @ Rain. How r u? Hope u r having a great day.

      • Rain

        Hey Plaid, I’m hanging in there, thank you for asking ❤️❤️❤️❤️ How are you? Hope all is well

    • kt

      You know I agree with you Rain! XO

      • Rain

        So nice to see you kt ❤️❤️❤️ I know you’re busy with family and work. Xoxo

        • kt

          You know me too well, Rain!!! I’ve missed my HW friends! Things have been a little crazy!

      • Suze☕️

        Hi Kt, haven’t seen you around for a while how’s things going? I hope the floods have stopped.

      • Suze☕️

        Just to add have you eve been to Gaceland? That one of me regret that I ha e never been. They say it’s quite small. Xoxoxoxoxoxo❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

        • Suze☕️

          Sorry my typing is sh*t at the moment due to the dizziness.

          • kt

            Suze, Good morning my sweet friend, I hope the dizziness goes away!!!! I have never been to Graceland, although it’s on my list. We have family who now lives in the area, so here is our chance. The floods are gone and now we have the heat – 100+! God Bless Texas ;0)
            I hope RHOBH replaces Yo with someone who has some class…some of the other shows – yikes!!!

            • Suze☕️

              I would like to think that as well but anyone with any class wouldn’t be interested. I have always wanted to go to Graceland, he was my first hero at the age of 8-9! Xoxoxoxoxox

              • kt

                We have an Elvis bell in our Rock and Roll room. Neither of us are sure where it came from or how we got it.

                • Suze☕️

                  NOOOOOOOOOO! I am so jealous. All I had years ago was a cupboard full of pictures! Xoxoxoxox

  • Melodie

    REALLY!!!!!!! HERE’S a very graceful exit………… GO AWAY YO….. your boring and whiny. It’s Beverly Hills there are lots of shallow, transparent, narcissistic, ego ridden women I bet there is one who would love to take yo’s place.

    • Gale

      Totally agree………GOOD-BYE TO THE YO-YO.

  • starr

    So Long, Farewell, I’m so happy for you to go Yo. Again I say, good riddance to bad rubbish.
    She wants to bring back privacy in her home??? What’s with that?! she exposed every moment of her fake journey, no one but her self did that. Her “Journey” wasted an entire season. Too little too late to need privacy all of a sudden. She was fired, bottom line. Hear me say loud & clear, Happy for her to fade into the sunset.

    • VaNonna

      She wants her privacy now that people realize she is a fake, just like her “illness”. That will be her new excuse – “I can’t discuss, I want my privacy”!

  • Cin

    Wishing her the best. I think it was time for her to go.

    • Cin

      Sorry… way too nice of me. YES I’m glad she’s going. She got on my nerves big time. I also did not like David. Ego toooooo big. He’s a big time turd.

  • Miss Moneypenny☂

    Good decision, Yolanda, wishing you wellness.

  • The ‘journey” is finally coning to an end…thank the good Lord! I cant stand the thought of another entire season of her fake moaning and complaining about some fake nonexistant illness that drove her husband off into the sunset running for the Hollywood Hills with whats left of his sanity and his finances! This past season was the most nauseating waste of air time Bravo has put out to date.This woman basically hijacked an entire season of television to garner pity for her at best self induced breast implant plastic leakage problem done all in the name of vanity to begin with. Goodbye YoLymer Muenchuesen (sp) lady! It’s off into the “privacy” you say you seek but gave up for vanity and to be seen to begin with. Oh and you can have your glam squad do your nails and makeup again, no need for the zombie iv therapy pictures on the internet any longer!

  • cyn

    I will really really miss her. she had such class!

  • Nada Adelle

    I’d never watched reality crap shows, but I’ve watched TRHOB since season 3, because Yolanda was so different from all the other attention seeking loud ladies. Very down to earth. What Kim said “she has a beautiful aura”. But she don’t need TRHOBH its way too trashy. She really is a pure, beautiful spirit with elegance and a lot of class. Look at Gigi, Bella and Anwar all supermodels with sweet and humble personalities. Can’t say that about the other kids from RHOBH. Although the lime thing annoyed me sometimes…She brought class, elegance and spirituality to the show. I’m not gonna watch anymore….I salute you Yolanda!

  • ChristopherM

    I’ll miss you!!! Just kidding…bye Boring!

  • Binky

    Not her choice to leave – what a surprise – NOT

  • Ronnie

    Yolanda, please take Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna with you!!! What will Erika do without Yo around? Perhaps now she may get along with Lisa Vanderpump!? Glad Lisa V. and Kyle are back. Could care less about Erika returning or not. Sad Kathryn will not be returning; even though she didn’t have a storyline, I liked her. I enjoy the show when they all get along and do fun stuff together the Beverly Hills way. I hate when they turn on one another, especially over silly things, like the “sorry” Lisa V. repeatedly gave to Eileen but Eileen was never satisfied…YAWN! Hope they find a few friendly and fun women to replace those now gone. And, please, no more appearances by Faye, Brandy or Kim.

  • AT LAST…. So long fake poser—-the fans tired of your endless, senseless sick selfies—bye felicia……….

  • Skeptic

    I see on TMZ that Yo is angry with Stephanie Seymour, a true supermodel, who said that Yo’s kids are basically the flavour of the week and not real models. No kidding they’re not. They were bought a career as a model, they certainly didn’t work for it like real models do.
