Yolanda Hadid Opens Up About Her Battle With Lyme Disease, Awarded Lifetime Achievement Award for Advocacy

Yolanda Hadid is contining to be a strong advocate for Lyme Disease. Right after announcing her the release of her book, she has been awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award by ProHealth, Inc.

The press release states, “We’re honored to award Yolanda Hadid with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her efforts to foster awareness about chronic Lyme disease and for her courage and willingness to share her story publicly, as she also battles to recover from Lyme.”

Hadid shared the story about her initial diagnosis with Lyme with Pro Health.

“Before I got sick, I was a hardworking multi-tasking butterfly that could do anything. Nothing was ever too much for me! I was a single mom raising three kids in Santa Barbara. I was a busy bee, always going, 24-7.

Then, I started to have flu-like symptoms that were cyclical; I would have severe joint pain, and it was as if I would get a bad flu every two weeks. But when you are such a high functioning person, as I was, you always find an excuse for the symptoms. I told myself that I was working too hard, or that I was driving too much, or that I wasn’t getting enough sleep—things like that. So I went through a whole denial stage at first.

I went to Germany and tried lamb stem cell therapy, which ended up helping me remarkably. Literally overnight, the joint pain disappeared. But I continued to have severe fatigue, as neurological and brain symptoms started to set in. For instance, I started to not recognize people, was suddenly bothered by noise and began to have memory issues—that sort of thing. I saw many doctors, all of whom tried to treat the symptoms rather than get to the root cause of what was wrong with me.

I did that for maybe a year before moving to Malibu in 2011, right before I got married. Then, I remember being in the gym one day, getting ready for my wedding, and all of a sudden I realized that I couldn’t do one more push-up. I looked at my husband-to-be (David Foster) and said, “You know what? I’m done. I can’t work out one more day.” Five years have passed, and I haven’t been to the gym or worked out like that since.

In the meantime, while I was in Malibu, I continued to see doctors but everyone around me was saying things like, “You are (feeling badly because) you’re doing too much; between getting ready for your wedding, doing your show in Holland, and so on…you are overworked.” But I knew this wasn’t true, because I used to thrive on that kind of lifestyle. I told them, “That’s not what is wrong with me.”

The doctors at that time gave me a whole rundown of antidepressants and medications; things like Ritalin and Adderal, to try to speed up and improve my brain function, but none of their treatments resonated with me or made me feel better. Yet I knew something was really wrong, because I would get circles, or rings, under my eyes every 3-4 weeks that would come and go. I would tell the doctors that it was as if something like a bacteria, was growing in my brain. But the doctors would tell me that I was wrong.

At times, I would go to the hospital with severe migraines, but the doctors would always just send me back home and tell me that I had chronic fatigue syndrome. However, I knew that because of the cyclical symptoms that I had, that it wasn’t chronic fatigue syndrome; that there was something in my brain that was causing symptoms to come and go.

Then I went to Belgium to see one of the top chronic fatigue syndrome specialists in Europe, and he ran some tests on me. Six weeks later, he called me and said, “You have chronic neurological Lyme disease. You need to get a port and start intravenous antibiotic therapy.” And that’s where my healing journey really began. This was in 2012.

At the time, I didn’t know much about the difficult detoxification reactions that could happen with intravenous antibiotic treatment. These reactions occur when microbes die in the body and release neurotoxins into the bloodstream. If I had known then what I know now, I’m sure it would have been a totally different experience for me (because I could have prepared for those reactions).

Once I started the antibiotics though, it was as if my body just shut down. I would be sweating on bathroom floor, feverish, sick, and in the end, the medications didn’t really get me much better. And, as I started researching—and I’m a pretty matter of fact kind of person—I realized that there is no cure for Lyme.

Once I really started educating myself about it, I thought, okay (the research shows that) they can’t kill Lyme in a test tube, which means that popping antibiotics for long periods of time doesn’t make sense. Doing antibiotic therapy never really felt right to me, anyway.”

Yolanda also shared how she is currently doing with her Lyme battle.

“I’ve pretty much traveled the world and exhausted every possibility of being able to figure this disease out. In the end, I took the road of “underground medicine” and studied and tried just about any and every (treatment) out there outside of conventional medicine that I thought could rebuild my body and make my immune system better. Those were a crazy five years, but now, I’m pretty stable compared to where I once was.

I continue to see a renowned integrative Lyme specialist, Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, every six weeks, for treatment. I also have a health advocate who works with me daily. I do a variety of treatments to eliminate the infections and rebuild my body; drips, shots, homeopathy, low-dose immunotherapy—many different things. I feel that if I keep hitting the infections from different angles that it will be beneficial and I hope and pray that one day, I will just wake up and be ready to get on with my life.”

She also shared how her children Bella and Anwar are doing with their Lyme battle.

“They are doing good. They are also under the care of Dr. Klinghardt. Looking at them keeps me extra motivated every day. They are young, and much more resilient than I am, fortunately.”

But Hadid is still motivated to find a cure.

“When I get words of ignorance from the world, it makes me stronger and just creates in me a desire to fight harder. I feel very strongly that God gave me the gift of being able to deal with all of the adversity, criticism and nonsense around me. It doesn’t make me angry. Somehow, I have the ability to just let it roll of my back and keep trekking forward.”

Yolanda has been doing some soul searching on vacation in Tahiti. Check out her photos below.

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.

  • One Rotten Egg

    Something very off out the thisshe says she hasn’t gone to the gym or worked out hard since the day she got married, het has a body liken that? I say, she is finding her next meal ticket

    • You are very right…she even did yoga with Brandi on the TV at one point.

    • VaNonna

      I was thinking the very same thing. I’m sure Yoyo has a reason for that!

    • Binky

      She’s ALREADY found her next meal ticket. Check out AGC Blind June #115. She sure ain’t paying for this trip …

  • Cin

    Yolanda has brought the spotlight to Lymes and continues to do so – good for her. Having said that – I don’t care too much for her on the housewives – she’s annoying.

      My very thoughts, Suze. Don’t believe anything she says. Blatant liar. The only good out of her grand pity party, is awareness of Lymmes disease which I highly doubt –actually–which I totally doubt that she has ever had. Waste of our good time.
      How r u sweet Suze? Pray every day for you. God bless you always. .

    Good luck to Yolanda . I wish her well

  • Jack

    I’m happy to see the mostly positive comments for Yolanda. She really has fought an almost impossible battle and I’m so proud to see it pay off for her!

    • Melodie

      Jack I think your perception of positive vs negative comments is a bit misconstrued. People are not the least bit interested in a story about her so called journey to “Wherever”

      • Anonymous

        Agreed .. The journey she has been forcing down everyone’s throat is over. No one cares any longer

    • Misty K

      Jack how messed up is the fact that you tried to be nice and get nothing but a hard time in return

  • GIGICAT

    we can all look like that via photoshop. there is something severely mentally wrong with her. very insecure and craving attention at any cost. vile, typical BH, over 50, desperate gold-digger.

    • The inconstancies are just tiring. People may say that she might feel good one day and rotten the next so what about her statements after the fact. She should quit making bold statements that she hasn’t done something for a damn year or two, when her activities are on film.

    • exactly what i think

  • Roxanne

    Oh my goodness, what an honor! And they have free shipping when you purchase $79.99 too! She must be so proud!

  • I don’t believe a word Lymebrains says. I have seen her lie too many times on TV. I can’t stand her at all, and never did like her.

  • VaNonna

    Lifetime achievement? For what? Is Pro Health made up of all the quacks Yoyo went to see over the years? What a joke!

    • Melodie

      When I saw that she was having all of her fillings taken out because they had something to do with her illness I realized at that point this chick is grasping for anything she possible can to get attention. No way do those fillings cause any illnesses. She is just trying to stay relevant and it is not working, I think she desperately needs a therapist .

  • Looks like she still has the dough to travel to the mot exclusive places on Earth to get healed. Wow, I wonder how many of the masses she supposedly helps are treated to that level of grandeur?

  • Jack

    Said it once, i will say it again. Haters.

    • I have never shown hate to Yolanda. I have never been a fan, I think she is a pompous, condescending bitch. Her illness has nothing to do with it. She expects everyone to understand her journey, when most ill people’s “journey” is hundreds of times worse than hers. She went to that 1st scene at Riina’s BD with no make-up for pity. She has had make up and hair people doing her up since she was 18. She could have been asleep and had her face done. I totally am empathetic for the chronic illness. Totally. I don’t care for the attitude where you go all over the world on a private jet, 1st class all the way and then make a parallel to other sick people to your own. It was awful, she had to be so sick, it was sickening the way she handled it. She expected way more from everyone than she ever gave, and when pity didn’t work, she got angry. She would never give anyone the benefit of being honest about the many, many inconsistencies in her illness. She speaks to and treats others as if they are beneath her, tells others how to live, what to where, when to wear it, what to do on vacation, then expects everyone to literally come take care of her. What could they possibly do? Besides what they did do, her friends anyway, not Rinna, but the other girls visited and called. She was taken care of round the clock by health care professionals and treated in places all over the world. People with children, who work their asses off to provide and then find that their child has some rare illness are the ones I have actual sympathy for. The ones who do anything they can just to get their child seen by a doctor, much less get the testing and medicine needed. They are the ones whose illness bothers me. Not some lady who hasn’t worked in 30 years, who has been provided with the very best money can buy since she was 20, who expects everyone to live how she thinks they should. Speak the way she think they should. Dress how she thinks they should, treat other friends how she would, speak of her husband in hushed voices, earn her trust when she sat at a table and treated the hostess in a mean girl capacity worse than any housewife I have seen, then tell others how to behave. And worst of all think that her “journey” was the most important one in the world.
      I have always wished health and peace for her and her children.

      • Jack

        I didnt realize you had such a close, intimate relationship with Yolanda to know all this! Thank goodness Ive been enlightened by all your solid knowledge about this person you must know so well since you know everything about her intentions!!!

        Its so ridiculous to me that some people really still compare other people. Not saying you are unhappy but man, it just would be so hard living life comparing it to everyone elses. Itd be impossible. Everyonr has a different story. Sure Yolanda has it easier than a single mother with no health insurance blah blah blah but you know what, Yolanda is handling it how she knows how to. Would it make you happy to see her stripped of her wealth and watch her struggle to find healthcare? Would that be satisfying to everyone?? Idk it all just seems like so much hate to me when this article is literally something positive and there isnt positivity found just because yall dont like her. Just be happy for someone it literally takes absolutely no money, no energy, no anything to just. Be. Happy.

        • You have a very unusual understanding of my post. I have never wished ill on her, or hoped she lost her wealth, Although she didn’t work for it herself. That still doesn’t make me feel like she doesn’t deserve it. I also don’t need to “know her” to see her as totally pompous ad condescending from the words I hear her speak. In Ojai, the girls were not dressed properly for an Ojai day. They were told in the a.m. they stayed up too late to have an “Ojai morning” This kind of schooling and scolding went on for her entire run on the show, minus, IMO, of course BG and KR, who were the weakest of the cast and therefore easy targets for her allies. She sat at Joyce’s dinner party in the desert and acted the mean mannerless woman she was always pointing out as beneath her, and when the girls went to the pool she was downright rude and crass in her attempt to get Joyce to go swimming, who BTW, didn’t want to swim and was enjoying her own party by sunning herself. Then she gets on the band wagon with the always oh so uptown Brandy and the mean bitch Carlton to shame her into swimming. Joyce was basically told she should run her own party, which Joyce was having no trouble doing, until it was pointed out yet again it wasn’t how Yolanda thought it should have been done. So my apparently annoying opinion of her comes from what she herself said and did on the show. The only thing I am sure I did imply in this entire post is that she went to Rinna’s BD party in that condition to make it be KNOWN that she was ill. If she hadn’t then continued throughout the season in every scene starting with commentary about her illness, I might not have drawn that conclusion, ( not the illness of others BTW, like she implied she had during that tearful exchange about people selling their homes to care for their family ) Illness, especially when a person has the kind of help she had, doesn’t necessitate going totally free of make up, which has not been her style, EVER, or the wearing of clothing she likely didn’t own. Her entire style changed, and I believe, maybe I forgot to include IMO enough, that she purposely did that to make the change very noticeable.
          It is not necessary for me to have any relationship whatsoever with her to see her filming herself going all over the world being treated. I won’t go back into the obtuse nature of those decisions (IMO) It took 106 doctors to order a MRI. The “journey” ruined her marriage, destroyed her health and damaged her reputation. I find that to be very sad, and unnecessary as I have said many times in many posts since the season started. I don’t need to know her to see her as pompous and condescending when she says things to Taylor, who is a close friend of Linda Thomas, the wife who was married to David longer than anyone like “you have no right to speak of David, as he takes good care of his ex’s. ”
          I do have some unhappy things happening, which by mentioning, you made yourself out to be the one who doesn’t care about others, not that it bothers me, I just pick up on it. But whenever a post has a comment like that the poster, IMO, is trying to get under someone’s skin, and sometimes you manage it, I hope that makes you feel good about yourself. I have a friend who is very, very ill, who doesn’t go around with dirty hair telling the world how her journey is worse than anyone else’s on Earth. Another girl (woman actually) who has some pretty serious stuff going on and still finds a way to make my life fuller just by the knowing of her. I can say I have a wonderful life, and I also share it with these friends of mine whom I cherish, and when I had money it was spent on something so important it would be above you. If wealth fixed ANYTHING important, it’s true, I would have liked to have some of Yolanda’s, but alas, it does not.

        • Jack, these are opinions and if you are reading them to the point where it is making YOU unhappy, it seems silly to try to come on a blog to school people on their opionions. You, of course, are entitled to your opinion of Yolanda as well. That’s the great thing about America : D

          • Anonymous

            Obviously not. Jack was verbally attacked twice for his/her opinion . So it seems one can have a opinion only if it matches certain people here . A few here think that their opinions are truth

            • I did not attack anyone, ever here for any reason. I wish when anonymous posters made a comment they would refer to who it is they are making accusations about. Bad enough no one can tell you all apart from all the other anons.

              • Skeptic

                3 D’s, stop feeding that troll. It doesn’t matter what you say, s/he will start feeding on your statement again. Don’t waste your time or breath. (BTW I agree with everything you wrote, and it was well written. Cheers.)

            • Suze☕️

              Cobblers!!!!!

              • Suze, no button under the ironing comment. If anyone remembers Yolanda repeating her working farm girl beginnings, watch that episode where she gets to Joyce’s compound in the desert. She says “where are the ironed sheets with the corners…..” “And the (some other thing that was apparently absent from what she had become accustomed to.”) I have wondered, Suze, not being snarky either I genuinely wonder if you can tell when you get in the bed? I know it must look sharp, really nice, but I did wonder if it feels different. Because I am pretty picky about my sheets, other than the best fruit and food, really nice sheets were one of the luxuries I afforded myself when my kids were growing up. Good shoes, coffee and nice sheets.

                • Suze☕️

                  To me they do feel different and also look different! Clean ironed ones going on tomorrow!

                  • Daisy

                    Suze , I think you ironing your sheets is the cutest thing ever

                    • Suze☕️

                      Why cute?

                    • Daisy

                      Oh Suze I didn’t mean anything bad by that . I’ve just never known anyone that has done that . I have a vision of a clean comfy crisp bed

                    • Suze☕️

                      I know you didn’t mean anything bad! You would never say anything like that. All my friends here iron their bedding so I just wanted to understand! My Daughter Is doing it and thinks i’m mad. Xoxo❤️❤️❤️❤️

                    • Daisy

                      That’s ok Suze my chubby hubby thinks that I’ve completely lost it because I’m washing walls. I do this twice a year…. Funny he has never noticed before

                    • Suze☕️

                      Now it’s my turn to think you are cute!

                    • Daisy

                      Lol fair enough , with the dogs bumping up against them they get really dirt

                  • Thanks for answering, I wondered that now for years. Line dried sheets are what feel and smell the best to me. But woe is me, I live in a place that is too dusty and windy to have a clothes line. I have a small one for the old dish towels I use in the garden, because they are much more absorbent than dryer dried, and it is much cheaper. They are washed with my garden gloves besides, which can never be dryer dried. Not my kind which are the ones with the rubber palms anyway, they don’t last long as it is. Once I was out at the telephone pole beside my compost heap. I noticed the electric meter ring going around so fast I couldn’t see it. I wondered about it all day. Then at the end f the gardening day, it was all slow again. I went in and put the last load of the day in the dryer, and went out to look! Sure enough, it was the dryer that pulls a disturbing amount of power.

                    • Real Sandy⛱

                      Just a note. Hi 3D’s. If you want absorbent towels, skip the fabric softener. I never use any fabric softener, it is not great for the skin either, but towels, especially, lose their absorbency with softener.
                      I use unscented Free types of detergents.

        • Rain

          Jack just stop it ok? I am team YO , and always have been ! But there are all kinds of opinions and that’s ok! It doesn’t make others ‘haters’ , just a difference of opinions. Not anybody who disagrees with your opinion is a hater :). I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ me so YO but I know not everybody does and Lord know I can’t stand other HWs that some posters adore. It’s all cool and we are all just expressing an opinion .

          • Mornin’ Rain. Hope it’s lovely in beautiful SF.

            • Rain

              It’s gorgeous in SF, wish you were here ❤️❤️❤️❤️ How’s Reno? Hope all is well

              • 65 and sunny. My “DeAnna” red roses are in their first flush of Summer bloom and besides the stuff you already know, all is well. She loved tiny flowers, and these are the deepest red with tiny buds, but the flowers cover that bush all summer. I have 2 canes pinned down to clone it, as I have no idea what cultivar it is to get more.
                Once in a while I still remember the best fish and chips I ever had, 50 years ago now, on the SF dock. Until then my relationship with “fish” had been fish sticks, but my brother talked me into it. They were wrapped in newspaper, and the guy’s brother and him had a fishing boat and caught and breaded the fish themselves. Funny what we remember.

                • Oh! I wish I was there, too.

                  • Daisy

                    Hi 3D’S and Rain I hope both of you ladies are having a great weekend

                    • Daisy

                      A perfect weekend Rain . …. spring cleaning and dealing with my 18 year old niece

                    • Rain

                      Perfect indeed Daisy LOL! My boys are home from college so I’ve put them to work and things are looking a lot cleaner . Their future wives can send me a thank you note later and bake me a pie ❤️❤️❤️

                    • Daisy

                      Your too funny Rain. I’m a strange person because I love to clean

                    • Rain

                      It’s not strange at all lol, I LOVE doing laundry!! Separating, washing, folding , everything about it

                    • Suze☕️

                      My daughter is doing all of my cleaning! It’s lovely! I do not enjoy cleaning ever! I prefer to get out in the garden. Xoxoxoxox❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

                    • You too, Daisy. My kids, though grown, call me the laundry “QUEEN” I kept a pretty nice house when my kids were growing up, and it’s still clean, bathrooms, kitchen and beds, ( linens ) but now that I have a huge garden and two kitties, the floors are not vacuumed quite so often, and the amount of books and garden and art supplies on tabletops
                      are not quite so considered. My kitties are inside kitties, and their facilities are in our attached garage, so I keep that very clean, twice a day. So, I guess that goes with my pickiness about bathrooms! My Daughter told me a trick to put the kitty box inside a small kids pool, 3′ round, and it keeps the litter from going all over the garage floor. Jim found one about a month ago, and wow was she right. Otherwise, I don’t mind cleaning. Suze irons SHEETS!!!! But she said they have smaller washers and dryers there, so they have to be, but the day I iron a sheet I guess will be the day I get to live in Scotland.

                    • Daisy

                      She irons her sheets. How adorable. I suck at ironing to be honest so mine would be wrinkled. My big thing is floors. I can’t stand for the to be dirty and with 5 dogs it can be challenging to keep them clean

                    • No button under your floor comment, but that is amazing, 5 dogs!! And, keeping the floors done up, wow. I have no carpet anywhere in my house, we had it built that way purposely. We were going to have hardwood floors put down, but the money was spent on something much more important. So, thank goodness for clorox easy mops, which I use as a dust mop in between and brush off the sheet thing until it is pretty bad. It would be wasteful and expensive, not to mention bad for the Earth to change it every time. Just 2 Kitties find any dust anywhere, like under the dryer etc., for me to see. If there is one thing I have that is expensive, a pain in the ass, a lot of work and sometimes cause problems, but more than worth it, it is my Kitties. They are just now a year old, I had waited a few years after my last Kitty went. Animals make life way, way better. Little furry balls of love.

                    • Suze☕️

                      3D I always iron my bedding! I don’t iron the kids now. I think because our bed is so big the sheets even when they are outside on the line still are creased! Our machines are smaller than your top loaders. My neighbour brought hers back from US when they moved back.

                    • Daisy

                      3 D’S I don’t have carpet either . I’m constantly chasing the dogs around with my Dyson and my mop , good thing like to clean . I have a cat also but Mr. MO MO Kitty is much easier than the dogs to look after

                • Rain

                  I would so LOVE to someday see your flowers and all your garden ❤️❤️❤️ I’ve pictured it a certain way in my mind and I’m sure it’s even more beautiful . I’m sure DeAnna is smiling from Heaven ❤️. I can’t make ANYTHING grow 🙂 , whatever the opposite of green thumb is, that’s what I got !!
                  Fishermans wharf has changed dramatically but yes it’s funny what you remember. The last 2 years have seen a construction boom like we have never seen before. It’s getting super crowded, noisy and hectic now, at least for us old timers. But some things stay the same, like today, meeting some friends at GG Park for a picnic. All spontaneous and everybody just decided this morning/ it will be a fun day . My boys are home from college but they are with their girlfriends! Lots of love , hugs xoxxoxo

                  • Suze☕️

                    I remember going to Fishernmans Wharf when I was in SF! Xoxoxoxox❤️❤️❤️

                    • Real Sandy⛱

                      You are very welcome. I wish it was more. I am glad you liked it.
                      I hope you are having a very nice day. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

                  • Thanks, I would love, love, love to meet at either place. The garden is thriving from the heretofore neglect it suffered after I was injured. The front and side yards are doing really well, but the back and other side are simply weeded and that’s it. There is no lawn, lawns don’t grow well here, and the only flat place is the front, hilly all around. It is a cottage garden with lots of raised beds made with different materials. Rocks, which I am now replacing all the other materials to, concrete blocks that kinda fit together was making it look mish mash. I went nuts when I started and planted like a crazy person for years. It is a lot of work but now that I am back, I enjoy it again. I LOVED it the years before I was injured, and now that is returning!
                    I would love to see your place, and pic-a-nic with you and yours anytime anywhere.

                  • Real Sandy⛱

                    Hey Rain. How are you? I hope you get to see the boys. What year are they in at college. Are they finished now for the summer? I hooe you are well and have a great day. XOXO

            Opinions should not disparage someones character though, thats the thing. There are hateful, hateful comments on this blog saying no one cares about yolanda, shes a liar, this that and the other, the worst one being from queen Gigicat or whatever herself that Yolanda is a hoe. These are not OPINIONS, they are vitriolic, hateful words meant to belittle a human being who is living the life she knows. An opinion would be the things 3Ds was saying about Yolanda obvious displays of pompousness in Ojai and her tendencies to be holier than thou throughout her 4 seasons on the series. These are things that can be discussed, disagreed upon, agreed upon whatever. I happen to agree upon some or most of these things. But calling her a crackpot and liar and saying things disparage a person are not opinions. They are hate. To answer 3D, i do care a tremendous amount about everyone. I would not be successful in my career if i didnt care about people. This is why i feel so strongly about assumptions being made about others (you do not know where her money comes from; despite what you see, you do not know her intentions). I dont feel attacked by anyone. I like to hear what y’all have to say. My OPINION is that there are hateful things being said on this website and i dont think i need to name names for you guys to know who these comments are being made by. I appreciate the time you guys take to respond and tell me your side of things. But no, i will not stop when i see beligerent, hateful comments. The funniest thing to me is that almost everyone who responds to my comments has absolutely no part in where my comment came from in the first place.

            • I guess saying “Queen GIGICAT ” in that tone, is different, in your OPINION, than GIGI saying ho. It seems to be her opinion, ( not that she needs me to stick up for her either, I just feel like saying what I think she means, then if I am mistaken, she will tell me what she really meant ) that when a very young woman puts a price on her looks, and instructs her children to do the same, it is similar to prostituting oneself. For a few years, when she was very young, as she reminds us constantly, she was a naive small town Dutch farm girl, who was discovered, and then walked the runways of Paris and Milan. Then she married Mohammed Hadid, for love? Who knows, certainly there was a LOT of money. When they divorced, he set her up in a way very few divorcee’s are. She no longer modeled, that is a fact, not GIGI’S opinion, and she did not “work” outside the home, another fact. So far we have a woman who did have a working skill, and that was farming, which when she left it behind, she never looked back. Her next skill was how to walk to make clothing look good. How to place her face so the camera catches the beauty. Is it hard work, I am sure it is. I am not sure about this part, it is somewhere in Wiki, but I believe she “worked” consistently as a model for 4 years. Part time after as she was having her children. Apparently somewhere along the way, maybe the 50,000 square foot estate she lived in gave her some kind of attitude toward herself and others that looked to me like, she was a pompous, uppity, holier than thou princess.
              Now, as far as who has more guts, heart, smarts and beauty, GIGICAT wins in every category.
              She then went on to build a mansion, brick by brick to hear her tell it, which she did tell at one of the dinner parties she held. What she had going for her was her beauty, her style and her ability to get a group of beautiful dinner guests, with her then husband, David Foster, musical genius at her side. Also, to have entrance to the most exclusive places. These things were not brought onto her because of her charitable work, her diligence, her strong feeling of using her wealth or prestige for any cause. As a matter of fact, I never saw her, until her illness, do anything charitable aside from what her husbands did. I honestly never heard her say a kind word. I never saw her do a kind thing or try to make anyone in her presence feel warmth.
              I did, however, see her do and say things that were cruel and entitled. Many many scenes where she was mean and pompous. Now you might say we can’t possibly know them from what we see on camera? Well, if what they know is going to be seen by the world is her hypocritical, preaching ways, then I know her as well as I would ever want to.
              GIGI, on the other hand has shared with us some of what her life has been, is funny and kind, hard working and has a deep regard for her family. She rescues animals, and takes care of them. I find so much beauty in that alone that it brings tears to my eyes. If that was all, that would set her higher in what matters that Yo could ever hope to attain. But she also takes care of her aging relatives, daily. Her life’s work is inextricably bound to the things of the heart and soul. If money could truly fix or change the real tragedies of life, I could understand Yolanda’s constant need for more, but it does not.

              • 3 D Forever everything you seem to write s exactly how I feel. Your brilliant. Thank-You. You can read my mind.

                • Thank you so much. I find that to be such a compliment, you can’t know how much. I love reading and writing. This blog is so much more than “housewives of Bravo.” I write way better than I speak at times, unless it is with my children, family or close friends. Hearing that makes me look so forward to seeing your next opinion to see if you can also read mine! 🙂

        • GIGICAT

          Hi Brandi/Jake,
          This is a blog and we are ALLOWED to write what we think without scoldings by anyone, nor do you have to feel the need to stick up for her. We all have our opinions on this crack-pot. You have your opinions, 3D and I have the same opinion. We’ve watched her lies for years now, her dumb blond act, her pushing her kids to be models (why any mother would push her kids to be models so that they can hook up with STD ridden little boys who think they are men and sitting around in clubs doing lines of coke anyway), we’ve seen her talk down to people, scold workers who carry furniture into a house because they don’t speak English properly (she doesn’t either by the way), act like a diva, insist on EVERYONE hear about her illness when, honestly, nobody tunes in to watch some menopausal, fake-titted wanna-be roam around the world looking for answers to her problems which were sitting there the whole time after being injected into her chest years ago and her inability to support herself. That ridiculous house in Malibu, her arrogance while talking to the poor guy selling stuff on PCH at the end of her property, and I could go on and on about why she is not a nice person, she is not a real person and she is not anyone to emulate, worship or adore. There is no need for you to try to convince us, or scold us, or attempt to make us think any different. We aren’t going to change our minds. And by the way, 3D is a well-educated woman who has plenty of $, loves animals, lives in a great neighborhood, worked her ass off for what she has and doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. Not to mention she is one heck of a gardener. When did being able to speak what you think become a reason to be attacked just because you don’t like what we have to say? If you don’t like what somebody writes, pass it over and keep reading.

            GIGICAT, WELL SAID!!!

          • Wow! Thank you, GIGICAT. I just saw this, and I am truly honored in your view of me. As you know the respect goes right back at you. You just made my day! ♥︎

      • starr

        3 D’s as always, perfect.

        • Hi, Starr. I haven’t seen you in a few days. It might be me or you haven’t been around. How goes it? ✫❈✥❆❌⭕️

          • starr

            Doing good, 3 D’s Thanks for caring.

    • Suze☕️

      Just because some have a different opinion to you! If you don’t like it don’t read it! I don’t think any one here ‘hates’ as it’s such a strong emotion just they don’t believe or don’t like her.

      • Suze, I agree 100% : D

      • Queenie

        For me, it’s the different opinions, that make it all interesting. How boring, when everyone agrees and says the same thing over and over. It’s gives us all an opportunity to think and see things from someone else’s point of view. That’s never a bad thing.

        • Yes, me too Queenie. Otherwise it would be “If you think Bethenny is crazy and you have season 7 on Prime or anywhere, watch episode 7, and you will get a tiny education on child abuse, hers”
          And the rest of the page would be “Ditto”, ” I see what you mean”, “I agree” , “You are right” and yuk.
          But, for real when you see Bethenny be how she can be, watch that episode if you feel like it, wow. S-7 Ep.-7

    • VaNonna

      Jack, it’s not about hate. It’s about lying. All one has to do is look at all the inconsistencies in her stories. She used her “illness” for only one benefit – hers. To throw her children in the mix is horrible as well. She is no better than Brooks. When people started questioning her “illness” and “doctors”, that is when she suddenly recovered.

      • Misty K

        Sure seems to be about hate to me . So many morality police here so glad all of you have perfect life’s

        • starr

          Misty K, JUST SO YOU KNOW, Us police do not have perfect lives. Because of our own pain and suffering, we spots fakes many miles away. You are the judgemental one. If you perceive us as “HATERS”, then the answer for you is plain as day.

          • Very eloquent, Starr of the skye. ❈

          • Suze☕️

            Well said Starr xxxooo I can only ish I had a perfect life!

            • Suze☕️

              Wish!!!!! Xxxooo

        • Suze☕️

          You are so wrong! I do not have a perfect life in fact totally opposite! This is a blog for people to state their opinions. If I don’t agree with a commenter I don’t read their opinions. I never call others ‘haters’ because they don’t agree with me.

          • Daisy

            Suze don’t give them a second thought . You know the saying bird’s of a feather flock together . Hope you’re having a great day lovely lady

            • Suze☕️

              Yes I am sweet Daisy, I have had two seperate deliveries of flowers from my daughters friends I am so lucky! I hope you have a lovely restful weekend. Xoxoxox❤️❤️❤️❤️

              • Daisy

                Suze, you have just made my weekend. It warms my heart to no end knowing how caring your daughter and her friends are. I know I’m still new here but I truly do care about you and think of you often through out my day

                • Suze☕️

                  Thanks Daisy, I am lucky and also I don’t think of you as new here just someone has been here ages! Xoxoxox❤️❤️❤️

                Suze that’s so nice . Thank you

                • Suze☕️

                  ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

        • Rain

          It’s not ‘hate’ or about having a perfect life Misty. I am and have always been team YO ! I disagree with some posters but they’re stil my friends and I know they are NOT haters. It’s just a show dear and I think all of us have more important things in our lives than to ‘hate’ someone on a ‘reality’ show LOL! There are alllllllll kinds of opinions on any board and you will find out you are not the only one to love or dislike a certain HW. Have fun and GO YO!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

          • I only hated one person in my life, and he is dead. I can hardly even go for the word dislike, more like I just don’t have the feeling of liking the woman. It might seem the same, but it isn’t. I never wished Yolanda any harm, I wanted her to get well, I felt suffering in my heart for her pain. I simply was not a fan from way before she got sick, and I do not care for hypocrites, which I believe she is, IMOpinion. I genuinely hope she is getting better every day and that she never relapses. I want the best for her family and always have. I have never said an insulting word about her children. I very simply do not care for her. It’s ok, tho, she probably wouldn’t care for me either.

            • Skeptic

              I don’t hate Yolanda. Hate is a strong emotion and I don’t wish to have such strong emotions against somebody I do not know. I don’t dislike Yolanda either, again, because i don’t know her. I do not, however, respect her. She has shown too many inconsistencies in her statements over the years that I cannot respect anything she says. She and the truth seem to have never met each other.

              • That was a great post, saying you don’t respect her spoke what I couldn’t seem to find the words for.

        • Why thank you as we ARE enjoying our perfect “life’s”, signed…..the morality police 😀

          • Freedom, you ALWAYS have a cool way of looking at things, thanks for my first laugh of the day, many more to come I am sure. 🙂

            • It just seems silly. It’s a darn tv show for Pete’s sake and this is just a forum to discuss it. Lol. I’m pretty sure every housewife is grateful for it because if people aren’t watching/discussing their shows, they are out of business 😀

        • That is so fucking hilarious, Misty K, if there was any morality worry, none of would watch housewives, much less comment on them.

        • VaNonna

          It’s called an opinion. It doesn’t constitute hate. Also, not even claiming anything about morals, but anyone who fakes and illness obviously has no morals or character. As far as my life – it may not be perfect, but I make the best of what I have.

      • starr

        Well said, VaNonna, well said.

      • Jack

        This is the kind of stuff im talking about ^^^^^^^ that right there is an OPINION!!!!!!! i get this, this comment makes me want to hear more about why you feel this way. What about saying “That’s her lifetime achievement, marrying rich men, then when divorce is near, find a way to get out of the prenup,” is productive?? That isnt an opinion its just straight bs cause you dont like her! So yes ma’am VaNonna. It is about hate as much as it is about you feeling like she lies. The difference is i want to have a conversation about what you see in her lies vs you saying shes a golddigger.

        Not sayinf anyone is a bully so beforw anyone comes at me for that, i am not saying you guys are bullies. But when a bully says “youre fat” thats not an opinion. When someone says “i think so and so lives in an unhealthy way based on the things ive seen” we can talk about that opinion. Hope that makes sense.

        • You weren’t addressing me, Jack, but yes, it does make sense. On the other hand, it might not be productive to you, and maybe it is for VaNonna. It is your OPINION that speaking about Yolanda in that way is not productive, or, was that a non-rhetorical question? And, BTW, who said we needed to always be PC and worry whether our opinion or comment is productive for others to read? Maybe it produced relief for the commentator to say what they really think of her. Yolanda went on 3 ( I believe ) reality shows, showing her real life. What she does during her days and her life. These blogs are set up for the viewers to reveal their opinions or thoughts on that very thing. I have written many times in the way you describe, though, and I have only rarely had anyone say to me “why do you feel that way or think that?” The posters who do communicate in that way have become friends here. I often ask questions, sometimes they are answered. I LOVE having those kinds of discussions here, so feel free to ask me if you want to have a true discussion.
          I think this, allthingsrh, is the best blog about housewives. We self moderate, all of us, we often disagree and even when there is an outright debate, almost every single person here does it with respect and without personal attack. Occasionally a hostile person decides to let loose, and either attacks or starts preaching. From the time I have been here, the people who tell us we need to share love and light do not then do that themselves, they just tell us we need to and move on. When the attack breaks the rules the blog owner steps in and takes care of it.
          So, to reiterate, any time you are in the mood for a discussion on anything I have posted, I genuinely look forward to it.
          🙂

          • VaNonna

            Thank you 3D’s. You said it much better.

            • Sometimes I get really effing tired when something I am passionate about, like illness or hypocrisy comes up, and another poster will say what I was just to tired or busy to say. If I can do that once in a while too, then it really gives me a sense of accomplishment, for real, so thanks, VaNonna 🙂

          • Jack

            I respect where youre coming from and i get very passionate about things and that can come across a certain way on this blog. I am a teacher, i deal with kids every day so i have an extreme soft spot for everyone. I always want to see the good side in people. Maybe Yolanda is a big ole liar and shes just going through menopause and being the most extra extra read all about it queen on the planet about her “journey”. But i am one of those people that just wants to believe she really is sick and really is fighting for a better cause. And i can tell all of you are like this too, its why I love being a part of this community even if i am a black sheep and on the outside most of the times. I love seeing what people have to say, I love the passion here, i LOVE there are stories behind the commenters and such. You guys channel your passion different from how I channel mine. My mouth gets me in trouble sometimes (most of the times tbh) but I dont want you guys to feel personally attacked by me. Thats not ever my intention.

            • Rain

              We are all black sheep in one way or another babe! Just say your piece and don’t over process and what everybody else says . As a teacher, maybe you can better edit so that your mouth doesn’t get you in trouble as you say. However, you’re NOT in trouble and nobody is. We are all adult with different life experiences and perception and opinions . You’re fine , now let’s all just let it go and go on! Things like what happened in Florida today should put things in perspective for all of us! Xoxox ❤️❤️❤️

              • Suze☕️

                Florida shootings were apalling! Sickening! You are right it does bring things into perspective.xxo

              • Jack

                That is honestly why I came back on here. As a member of the LGBT community, and I know a lot of you are allies or have family members that are part of this community, it feels personal. To all of us near and far. It is such a tragedy. It makes me appreciate everyone that I come in contact with that offers support and love. Thank you all for listening to me and allowing me the chance to listen to you. Thank You.

                • Suze☕️

                  Yes Jack my Daughter is and I know it feels more personal to folks who are or have family or like Rain has friends who are gay. Glad this here is all sorted here xoxoxo❤️❤️❤️

                  • Real Sandy⛱

                    I just found out that a nurse at the hospital’s (where hub works) daughter was there with 3 girlfriends to see the drag show and all three friends were killed. The daughter escaped without injury. It is known to be a popular after hours place in Orlando. It is all over the news…on World News right now. The FBI followed the suspect for 10 months, so they just stated on the news as I typed this. Still…it happened. Sad for all of us. You don’t have to be gay or be related to someone who is either to feel this, and maybe you feel it more, but some of us feel for others’ pain no matter what their sexual orientation, etc. Just saying. It hurts the world. Not everyone at this place was gay either, not that any of that even matters. It is humanity we are talking about. It hurts us all. ❤️

                    • Rain

                      So sad Sandy! Every life has value and nobody deserves this , regardless of who or what they are. ❤️❤️❤️

                    • Real Sandy⛱

                      How true.
                      How are you, Rain. How is everything. Are the boys home for the summer now. I think I asked this to you somewhere, but I did not see a response from you. I hope all is well with you and yours, Rain, my friend. xoxoxoxoxo

                    • Rain

                      Hey Sandy , thank you for asking ❤️❤️ I must’ve missed your first question. Yes the boys are home for the summer, they usually get some sort of job or another plus time with their girlfriends etc. it’s nice having them around and I actually like both their girlfriends so I like to when both or one of them are here . My daughter is ramping up the prep for her wedding in September so she’s running around like a crazy chicken lol. How are you and how’s your hubby?? I hope you are all well and hopefully no more bad weather for you guys xoxo ❤️❤️

                    • Real Sandy⛱

                      You are lucky that you like both your boys’ girlfriends, Rain. I am happy for the boys and you, too. It must be lots of fun to plan a wedding, and of course, stressful at times, too, but worth it in the end. It sounds like you have a nice family.
                      Everyone is fine here, including hubby, barring his side effects from the pills…like hot flashes at times. He is doing okay. So far, so good, thank goodness.
                      The weather here is beautiful today. I wish it would stay like this. If only the landscaper would show to do some weeding, etc. Now he put me off another week again. Such is life.
                      I hope you have a lovely week and Happy Flag Day today! 🙂 xoxoxo

                    • Rain

                      I’m soooo happy your hubby is doing well, that’s great ❤️❤️❤️❤️ My daughter is super organized and opinionated so there is no burden on me really other than nodding here and smiling there LOL. Yes the boys fill the house with noise, fun but also laundry and food left overs :). Enjoy the lovely day xoxo

                    • Real Sandy⛱

                      Well, it sounds like your daughter has it all together. That is the best! It should be a breeze. 😉
                      I know the noise of the boys is wonderful too, bar the laundry. Leftovers with the boys home or no leftovers?
                      I love it when both my boys are home, and I do hope to see them both on the weekend.
                      Glad all is well with you and yours. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

            • Misty K

              Please guys please stop . I didn’t want one stupid comment to start all of this . Everyone likes who they like end of story . Everyone has value points on who they like and don’t like . With what happened in Florida and all can we please agree to disagree . Please

            • I am so glad you explained that, because I used to get in a lot of trouble from my mouth too. I had never even seen a blog before, much less realized regular folks cold just write in it. That’s the honest truth. But many here forgave my initial hostility, and it has become a very important part of my life. So, hopefully we can discuss some stuff soon.

            • Suze☕️

              Jack as well as having he same name as my son! This comment is lovely!

            • Real Sandy⛱

              Hi Jack! We may not agree about Yolanda in this case, but we can always agree to disagree.
              As for what happened in Orlando, it is a shock, a tragedy, and a sad, sad time for all of humanity. It is a horror that Christina Grimmie was shot right before all of this too…not related, but just a random act of extreme violence that saddens and horrifies us all, and in the same city. My heart goes out to all the families and people affected, and I pray those injured recover and are able to cope.
              After hearing that the crazy gunman was watched closely by the FBI more than once and yet still was able to purchase a gun, it makes me even more ill, knowing how much the government knew and yet they let this happen as a result of their negligence in this case. I am appalled. It is sad for all of us.

          You are correct Jack, I don’t like her. I don’t like anyone who uses an “illness” as their own convenience, i.e. when to film, when not to film, can’t film the whole reunion, always an excuse. I don’t like anyone whose stories have so many inconsistencies, i.e. lies. Yoyo seems to have a pattern of her marrying rich men, having prenuptial agreements, then coming up with an “illness” when the marriage starts going downhill. Those are MY reasons on MY OPINION. My OPINION of her is exactly as I stated, she lacks character, especially for one who tries to be so high and mighty to others. Again, not sure when you grew up, but everything is not about bullying. Just because my opinion differs from yours shouldn’t be threatening. I believe I’ve given examples of why I feel that way.

            Wow!! This is the most intense thread of reponses in a while. Hopefully we all reached a good place with our differences. I’m going to play devils advocate her and say yes Jack,, bullying is a strong word and doesn’t really apply here , IMO. It’s all about perception and how we react and respond to things. However, VaNonna , implying Yolanda is lying about her illness (whatever that illness is) can also be hurtful to some people . Is she dramatic, annoying and over the top? HECK YEAH LOL!!!! And as far as i know , she’s been married twice , so that’s not a ‘pattern’ , and I’m sure many many models and actresses have all marred very rich men and divorced them, so she’s not the first and won’t be the last . That’s my 2 cents and just MY OPINION Xoxox and as I always say, everybody’s entitled to MY OPINION 🙂

              Did we all read the part about how i made sure to reiterate that i think no one is bully here? .

              • Yes. 🙂

                I am late to this thread, mostly because I am tired of the topic, and am glad to see your nice comment too. 🙂

    Yolanda looks stunning. She doesnt need fake boobs to look great. I pray her health returns 100%. I just read they thought Kris Kristofferson had Alzheimer disease and it was LYME!!! Thats how serious Lyme disease is. I wish people wouldnt mock her.

    seems to me she just told the entire story. Why buy her book… it’s all right here. Dummy.

  • VaNonna

    Yoyo has a way of needing a way out of all her prenups with her rich husbands. Seems to be a pattern there. That’s her lifetime achievement, marrying rich men, then when divorce is near, find a way to get out of the prenup.
