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.

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?

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

Yes Jen. I agree wholeheartedly with you.

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.

Good riddance.

I comply

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.

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

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

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!

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

You just did.


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.

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

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.

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! 🙁

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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️

So much venom women are cruel to each other

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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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

♥︎❀❌⭕️⭕️⭕️⭕️ ♈︎❤️♊︎

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.

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!… Read more »
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… Read more »

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.

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

You know I agree with you Rain! XO

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

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

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

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❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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

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!!!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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”!

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

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.

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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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

Not her choice to leave – what a surprise – NOT

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… Read more »

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

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.
