This is so heartbreaking. Yolanda Foster’s divorce from David Foster came as a shock to her ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ costars and fans alike, but perhaps the person it shocked most was Yolanda herself. Watch her confess to being ‘blindsided’ right here!
Poor Yolanda Foster! Four months after the 52-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star announced her divorce from David Foster, 66, Yolanda revealed that she actually didn’t see the split coming one bit. When she visited Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Yolanda if she felt blindsided by the divorce — and she gave quite the sad answer!
“Yeah, I didn’t think that was the end of the road,” Yolanda told Andy. “I would have hoped to wait until I got 100 percent well.”
Yolanda has been battling Lyme disease since 2012, a crisis that struck within the first year of her marriage to David. In a previous appearance on WWHL, Yolanda admitted that her disease “changed the dynamic” of the marriage, but clearly she didn’t think her relationship would completely crumble. Although Yolanda admitted she was blindsided this time, she stressed that she has no hard feelings against David for what happened.
“You can’t underestimate how much it takes for a man to take care of somebody that’s sick all of the time,” Yolanda said. “David didn’t change; I’m the one that changed. And I guess this is the outcome of that.”
Even if Yolanda was changing as she dealt with her illness, her costars weren’t aware that there were any issues in her marriage. In fact, in the April 12 finale of RHOBH, fans got to see just how blindsided everyone was about the split.
Part of the reason everyone was so caught off guard by the divorce was because it happened after the show had finished shooting, Yolanda told Andy. But even so, Yolanda said she didn’t know her marriage was over until Nov. 15, just two weeks before she and David officially announced their divorce.
As revealed in the RHOBH finale, Yolanda has now moved into her own condo. She told Andy she and David are “in touch a little bit, here and there,” but it sadly sounds like this is one divorce that is final.
