Yolanda Hadid Shares New Health Update On Lyme Disease Journey


Yolanda Hadid has always been candid about her journey with Lyme disease and while she’s been out of the pubic eye for awhile, taking care of herself and traveling, she gave fans and update when she appeared on the red carpet Thursday night at the Uniting for a Lyme-Free World Gala in New York, hosted by the Global Lyme Alliance.

“I’m actually feeling really good. I’m probaby at 85, 90 percent,” she told the Daily Dish. “I just started a new clinical trial and I’m really excited because I’m on day 12 and I’m feeling strangely good. So hopefully after 60 days this might be the end for me. I mean that’d be perfect but I don’t know. We don’t know.”

Yolanda was joined by her daughter Bella, who just started the same trial. “I just started [the same trial], so hopefully I’m getting there,” she explained.

“We keep trying. There is no cure. In the medical business, the pharmaceutical business is a $700 billion business and yet there’s no cure for Lyme disease, even though the first case was diagnosed in 1972,” Yolanda said. “I mean, you go and figure why is there no cure, why is this room full of people that are struggling and suffering? We don’t know.”

“It’s almost like a lifestyle,” Yolanda said. “She just came back from Tokyo. She’s been in bed for three days, complete resting, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping,” her mom said. “And then she’ll get up and go to work and do what she has to do. I mean, obviously, at this age there’s so many obligations I think that for now we’re juggling until we can find a cure and get back to real life.”

Wow–wonder if Bella’s advertisers and promoters think she is a business liability–never knowing when she will do the job

Models don’t have promoters or advertisers. They are represented by modeling agencies and assigned a booker in their gender division responsible for fostering relationships with fashion industry clients on their behalf, and taking care of all details of jobs they book. I have been on all sides of the booking table from internships under iconic modeling agents, to being represented as an artist, to casting in production, to being at the decision making table as an actual client: what I can say is that mine is a very unconventional business where what drives a lot of what we do is… Read more »

BonVivant ! You are so helpful with all your inside knowledge of the model/entertainment industry. I have no idea what you do or if you’ve ever stated it and I missed it, but I trust your experience and I always learn something new from your comments thank you. 🙂

Good to know

I have no idea why her kids are “models” since they have those dead eyes. I don’t see it. As for Ho? It’s too early to comment on her.

Who cares? Go away

Sorry. I don’t buy it. Especially after seeing pics of Bella smoking cigs and boozing with Kylie Jenner over the summer. One minute she’s posting pics of an IV in her arm, the next she’s jetting all over the world.

Queenie, isn’t that the same behavior that Bella’s mother, Yolanda show all of last season on RHOBH? Many question marks still.

One could ask “why is there no cure for cancer?” or any number of debilitating diseases that have been around for centuries? If Yo wants to bring awareness to Lyme disease, fine. I just don’t like her comment about there being “no cure” when big Pharma has sooo much money. A lot of money goes into research not just for Lyme but for many, many other diseases. My comment is not about defending the pharmaceutical companies but is directed more toward Yolanda and her ‘everything should be about me and my problems’ attitude. Have a great day everyone!
