Gigi Hadid made a rare appearance on the March 22 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ during which she gave an emotional speech about her mom, Yolanda Foster, and her lyme disease. Gigi’s speech was so powerful that she moved everyone at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala to tears.
Before heading to Dubai on the March 22 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, a number of the ladies flew to New York City to watch Yolanda Foster get honored at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala. Even Yolanda’s daughters, Gigi and Bella Hadid, showed up for the special occasion. And, Gigi, who was accompanied by then-boyfriend Joe Jonas, gave a powerful speech that left everyone in tears.
“Tonight, we are honoring the person that, more than anyone I know, is hope for Lyme disease awareness, my mom,” Gigi said during her emotional speech. “For your fight, for your passion, and for making your journey one that will help so many, I’m so proud to honor you with this award,” she added before breaking down in tears. Bella and her mom also cried while watching from the audience.
While talking to the camera, Yolanda said her family’s journey has been somewhere in-between heartbreaking and heartwarming. So sad. As fans of the series know, Yolanda’s lyme disease has been a conflict on the show this season. Lisa Rinna once accused Yolanda of faking her disease, while Lisa Vanderpump came under fire for saying Yolanda’s ex said his kids, Bella and Anwar Hadid, did not have lyme disease. However, after attending the gala, Kyle Richards no longer had any doubts about Yolanda’s condition, and she said she wished the other ladies — specifically, Lisa Rinna — had attended the event.
Days later, the ladies traveled to Dubai, where they were forced to dress modestly and refrain from cursing. It proved to be extremely difficult for Erika, who exclaimed, “f***!” upon seeing Kyle and Lisa’s massive hotel suite. When they gathered for dinner, Lisa Rinna further expressed her doubts about Yolanda, which didn’t sit well with the ladies.
