Yolanda Foster Pleads With Bella To Change Her Life After DUI Arrest In Shocking Email – Email Enclosed!

This week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” showed Yolanda Foster receiving a shocking phone call regarding her daughter, Bella Hadid’s DUI. In her Bravo blog, Yolanda Foster details her emotions in the aftermath of learning the news. She questions her parenting skills in her blog this week:

“Bella has been an extraordinary child for 17 years–always edgy but living a very disciplined life as a equestrian competitor–so this reckless choice was so shocking and disappointing to me. I raised her as a single mom most of her life, so immediately I started to take it personally, blaming myself and doubting my parenting skills. Where did I screw up?! We covered the subject of the dangers of drinking and driving a thousand times! Her integrity and philosophy on life were always so right on and beyond her years that this crucial mistake was a shocking blow to digest for me as her mommy.” 

Our friends over at Blind Gossip had the tea on Bella’s DUI long ago and recently cracked this case wide open by solving their blind item entitled, “Mom Pleads With Her Dangerously Spoiled Child,” regarding a rich TV star whose kid was dangerously out of control. The site published an email Yolanda sent to Bella shortly after her DUI incident:

RHOBH Bella Hadid DUI

 Yolanda was obviously shaken by the news, in her blog she wrote: 

“When my phone rang and I heard David’s voice, I knew in my gut something was really wrong. My adrenaline started rushing through my body, and the greatest panic attack of my life set in, like a train ran over my heart. “DUI……….”, “drinking and driving………….” OMG, what if she had hurt someone?! What if she had crashed and gotten killed?! My “what if” button went from zero to 10 in a split second, because my greatest fear is to lose any of my children in a car accident the way I lost my father when I was only seven years old.”
“But then again, being a mother is discovering strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you never knew existed. I could not shake my emotions and cried the entire plane ride home from Spain to LA. Embarassing, to say the least, in front of the other passengers, but I was so overwhelmed with a sense of vulnerability that I had never felt before and couldn’t control. I got out my laptop and wrote Bella the longest letter I have ever written and shared with her all that I felt in my heart and needed her to know. I explained to her how much she meant to me and how fatal this mistake could have been. At the same time putting my thoughts in a row and digesting all that had happened in the past 24 hours made me realize that I had to accept the fact that she had made a human error and that it was up to me to show the lesson and the consequences that were going to come with this eye-opening experience in a way that she would never forget.”

          • twifan2

            IK!!!
            I barely had time to get my sprinkle cookie ring on!

  • Yo strikes me as the type that thinks things like this could never happen to her. Sorry her wake up call had to come this way but what does she expect leaving a 17 year old home alone all the time.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Agree, agree!!! Every time I left any of my 17 year olds home alone, it was like a nightmare!!!! Neighbors love to tattle!!!

  • Bad Barbie

    Hope Bella learns!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I loved reading the e-mail!!!! Hope it is a real one and not a fake!!!! Very cool!

    • twifan2

      NAWS!!!! How’s youses doing? The Pennster?
      I kept missing you yesterday. I even posted to 4Hs thinking it was you?! 0.o This cold has me all whackadoodles! 😀
      How you like the voicemail greeting?! 🙂

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I couldn’t get it to work!!! (I don’t have voice on my puter) I tried calling you but to no avail :(((

        • twifan2

          It’s on my phone.
          I wonder what’s up with that??? I’m getting calls. :/

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Well, maybe you can just call me when you get a chance–No news really just wanted to hear your voice!!!!

        • twifan2

          That is SO weird!
          I got a voicemail that you left the other day. :/

          • noarguingwithstupid

            The other day I had no problem!!!!

          • twifan2

            I wonder why now? :/
            A confuddlement!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Sometimes I think the powers that be do not want me to talk on phone!!!!!

      • noarguingwithstupid

        The Pennster has been bad—barking and bothering me and neighbors, I am sure. I am ready to strangle her!!

        • twifan2

          Want me to send Chats over there & have him sit on her to quiet her down? 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Yes!!!!!!!!! I think that’s an excellent idea!!!! She has really been bad. I had to take out a lot of garbage and she was so bad not letting me out of the door without running!!!! Bad Penny, Bad Penny!!!!

          • twifan2

            😀
            That’s Chats when I go out in the evenings to get my mail downstairs. HE tries to run out the door. UGH! Little booger thinks he’s going to go for a walk!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Oh she was just sooooooooooooo bad!!!! Just like having a 3 year old child!!!!

          • twifan2

            I have a FAT 2 yr old here! ;D
            Throws tantrums at a drop of a shiny penny! 😀

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I understand her pain and horror but why is EVERYTHING about Yolanda? I mean–obviously Bella has some problems but Yolanda kept drawing the attention back to herself in a way that made me uncomfortable. (I couldn’t help think that Yolanda was more interested in how it made HER look as a mother than to deal with Bella’s obvious problems. Perhaps Bella is acting out because her mother is more interested in her “King” than she is in her children.

    Also, Yolanda must be mortified (as must Bella) that this email was published. I’m sure she didn’t want that.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      ITA!!!!!!! YOYO is first, then everyone else!!!! (Except King David, of course!!!)

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Exactly.

    • twifan2

      I see more ‘rebellious’ acts from Bella coming. 🙁
      Wonder how that email got out?

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh definitely. This seems like a cry for attention. I mean–her mother is never home with her kids and those kids need guidance. If she did this (plus the state of her car)–well it seems to me that her head is pretty messed up. And that usually doesn’t just ‘fix itself.’

      • I’m sure she’s into heavy drugs too. She’s exposed to the lifestyle and has the money to support it. And Yo pushing her into the dangerous world of modeling is not helping her kid. Most models are druggies.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      ITA.

  • ZammyB

    I am very much NOT a Yoyo fan. She has to be my least favorite HW and I mean both Kenya Moore and Brandi Glanville and MelGo are also wives. However, I love that she is a GOOD mom. She really worries and it isn’t all for show.

  • Anne Green

    There is more to this story than just the DUI. First, that 17 year old was operating on a suspended license but was allowed access to a vehicle. Second, why was her license suspended? Third, the condition of her vehicle is a huge red flag. Fourth, why was this Yolanda’s “spiel” in the form of an email? This should have definitely been a face-to-face conversation. This girl is crying out for help…..I hope it doesn’t go ignored.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Don’t hold your breath, Anne!!!! YoYo doesn’t have a lot of time to waste on this!!!!

      • Anne Green

        Sadly Naws….I agree with you. Just because she lives a privileged life does not exempt her from social and emotional problems.

    • Dave

      Clearly Yolanda and Mohammed are not parenting this young lady like Yolanda wants us to believe. She’s acting out for attention and love. Expect more bad things from this kid.

      • Babson_Chick

        Bella better watch out or Mohammed will send her off to some harem.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Well said. This is what happens when you raise your child as your best friend instead of a parent/daughter relationship.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Yep Yep—My kids didn’t start liking me til they were about 21 years old!!!

        • RealitytvJunkie

          You’re a good mom. Yolanda is failing miserably. She loves and adores one daughter more than the other. This one is the dark sheep .Yolanda only cares about Gigi the one who is a model in NYC and has sleeps around.

        • Babson_Chick

          LOL!! I’m with you on that!! They appreciate us now – yeah!!

  • ZammyB

    Now reading some of your comments…it has me thinking…did BELLA leak the email?!

    • twifan2

      YES! I think she may have.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Isn’t it a great e-mail ???

    • Dave

      I have a feeling Bella sold the email to the tabs.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I bet her Mom wants to die!!!

        • ZammyB

          Yes, this is NOT in her PERFECT, MY LOVE, MY KING, let’s be LOVERS kind of world huh?

          • Dave

            You got it. This just blows the lid off Yolanda’s sham of a perfect life.

          • Babson_Chick

            yep – the lemons are getting too sour

          • BINGO!!!!!!!!!

        • Dave

          The embarrassment is killing her. No Rodeo Drive or Malibu Country Club for a month.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          She gets a DUI following her high school graduation and then she gets to move to her own apartment in NYC to model. I don’t see any problems there????

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Nope, Mom is just a joke!!! And remember, education comes second to modeling!!!!!

          • RealitytvJunkie

            Her mother wants to be her BFF and thinks giving her everything is the way to raise a child. Bad parenting!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            When you are a parent it always seems easier to say yes than no!!!! No brings along a lot of whining and grief!!!!!

          • Addie2U

            Sounds like another “reality” mother who’s been crying for the past few months “we don’t have a dime put away for our dawteers futures”. (But these kids have walk-in closets full of clothes — many “too ugly to wear” & cellphones, & battery operated cars, & endless supplies of hair ribbons, & . . . . . . ! Then this family has the nerve to beg for money on a site that’s used for those is actual need → so she can put out “another” music video!☺ (And to think this same 13yr old child is publically asking her parents to buy her a $5,000+ Cartier bracelet for Christmas!)

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Your posts are so insightful regarding the kids with the walk in closets and wanting ridiculously expensive gifts. Addie, I swear it seems as if someone is making that family’s story up–it is so overblown, and unbelievable!

          • Addie2U

            It’s mind blowing that Teresa actually has fans! When did it become admirable to be a lying, cheating, scam artist? And for all those that say “well, she’s such a good mother” → she’s NOT. She’s a lousy, rotten, horrible, atrocious mother that’s teaching her 4 daw-teers to be exactly like her! Pray tell, who in their right mind would continue to flaunt their wealth then cry they have no money put away for their kids futures or encourage their child to beg for money on a public domain set up for those in NEED! If Gia knows the truth & is as “devastated” as Teresa wants everyone to believe, WHY is this child asking for gifts that could feed a family for a year?!

          • WestCoastFeed

            That gift wish list just left me shaking my head again. Gia has to know that the family finances are in shambles, yet still asks for that Cartier bracelet and Louis V luggage? And Gabriella who maybe they’ve been able to shelter more, asks for the Apple watch? And what’s even worse, those kids will probably get what they wanted.

          • Addie2U

            Teresa’s stated repeatedly that Gia’s known for a while & re Milania & Gabriella → the kids have been talking at school so she told those two → “Mommy’s going away to learn” (i.e. to college)!!

          • Mary Stonehouse

            All I see in that family is overspending, and greed for material possessions that is escalating in defiance of the judge’s orders. Tre and Joe are thumbing their noses at the many victims of their felonious behavior. I am not up to writing all my feelings about these people, so I appreciate reading our Addis, our very own Knight in Shinning Armor, battling all the ‘huggers’! Makes me think that the Huggers think that they will benefit in the future from the scams that are created by their rotten heroes!

          • Addie2U

            It may be best not to put too much thought into what the Tre-Huggers are thinking. I’d hate to go “there” & not come back!☺

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Hi Mary, hope you are feeling better & well on your way to a speedy recovery. Have a lovely evening.

          • Addie2U

            I know right?! Forget the silver platter; everything was handed to these kids on a gold gilded tray. What responsibilities did these kids have? Staying on top of the maid that turned their beds down every night or that their drivers kept their rides clean & polished?!

          • MorningYawn

            Does. Not. Compute. No way in HE!! My parents would have allowed a sweet apt in NYC if I pulled that! And I promise, my kids won’t either!

    • I was wondering the same thing myself.

  • Dave

    Yikes. In CA an underage DUI is actually worse than if she was an adult because she gets the additional charge of underage drinking. I think Bella sold the email to the tabs to embarrass her mom.

  • Yolie

    Welcome to the real world Yolanda. It’s not all fun and games and yes it will knock you to your knees when you get the call. But Bella needs to be the one to man up, take responsibility and take her punishment. The best thing you can do is support her and shut up.

  • WestCoastFeed

    I hope Teresa is paying attention and sees what happens when you never so nay to your children.

    • twifan2

      Tre neva listens to other people. She does what she wants & the heck with the consequences.

      • Exactly and she lets her kids do whatever they want to.

      • Addie2U

        “What are consequences?” “I don’t know what that means, so it doesn’t count.”

        • twifan2

          Ding! Ding! Ding!
          You have won a FREE one-way ticket to Trelandia!
          Have a pleasant journey! 🙂

          • Addie2U

            I’d like to trade that in, please. ☺

    • I think we can expect the same from Gia soon. Especially her parents are skilled with driving with suspended driver license.

    • Addie2U

      This email could be placed on a recording & piped into her home on a continuous loop (at full volume) AND she’d still think this doesn’t apply (or could never happen) to her!

      • EXACTLY!! You have an awesome way with words!

        • Addie2U

          Not really, but what I do have is a low tolerance for liars, cheaters, scammers, grifters, . . . . ☺

          • Trippinhhard

            I’m with you on that..

  • noarguingwithstupid

    If you haven’t read the email, please do!!! It is really great!!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I wonder if the kids Dad knows anything or cares?????

  • Babson_Chick

    Another kid that is not so perfect afterall. Sad but overly spoiling your child doesn’t work IMO.

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    I hope & pray that Bella realizes how lucky she was to get caught BEFORE she killed someone or herself. Drinking & driving. A tragedy waiting to happen.
    Hoping this was the reality check she needed to never make such a foolish mistake & deadly choice again.

  • Trippinhhard

    I feel for her as a parent, we can only teach our kids right from wrong, and what to do just in case.. Thank you I didn’t have this mess with my kids. But how did she not know her child couldn’t drive, was a slob, had drugs in the car etc.. Don’t she look at their car in the driveway.. Oh maybe she too busy, to have a look inside her car… I hope Bella get it together, because she will be on her own soon, it will only get worse, if she don’t stop now.. One of those drugs is used as a diet pill.. Adderall (sp) Yoyo knows well, she doesn’t allow her kids to eat… Smh

    • Addie2U

      I’ve seen kids (not as wealthy as these), but whose parents live very well & have always bought them extravagant items. The kid ends up rebelling & eventually look at wealth as the enemy. They feel all the parents ever cared about is the almighty dollar. It’s then worse when the kid screws up (rebels) & the parent says “after all I did for you / gave you / blah, blah, blah. All it does it push the kid further away.

      • Trippinhhard

        I know that’s right, have seen it with my own eyes, they are always too busy to spend time, but always leave cash or a credit card for them to use..

    • noarguingwithstupid

      When I saw YoYo cut a tiny piece of cake in HALF!!! for her daughter I could not believe my eyes!!! Sick, Sick, Sick!!!! She is just teaching how important it is to be thin, not any other virtue!!

      • Trippinhhard

        She will not have 1oz of body fat and neither will her daughters..
        I’m not starving to stay thin..

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Do you think she could love her kids if they got fat???? I think she would ignore them and be very mean to them. Sad really.

          • Trippinhhard

            I think she would watch every piece of food intake and complain..
            I don’t know how people starve all day.. I have a stomach disease at times I can’t eat but a few crackers for weeks.. I be so hungry my stomach making noises, but I can’t eat food.. If I do it comes right back up.. No way, it’s too taxing n malnutrition sets in.. I know for a fact..

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I am in the process of trying to gain weight. I lost 50 lbs. and now I am paying for it!!! I didn’t mean to lose the weight–it just happened with arthritis.

          • Trippinhhard

            The medication and PAIN dealing with arthritis is something, I have knots on my arm, mine is getting worse… I gained 30 lbs, thyroid problems, MEDS have kicked and I have 10 lbs left to lose. I feel for you NAWS, but he’ll mine don’t make me loose one pound.. lol

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I think I have become immune to Pred and all the side effects!!!! Congrats on losing the weight 🙂

          • Trippinhhard

            I tell anyone, I just deal with the hand I dealt, and do the best I can..
            I’m happy you are doing better and stock up on those carbohydrates to gain some weight.. Holiday is coming soon, so you eat up..
            But the sad part is, it’s going to be hard to gain, because your stomach is smaller, so don’t get sick eating…

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Lately I have really been enjoying fruit cake!!! It’s one thing I love and I think it is full of calories–I guess I will need to buy a few cause after the holidays–no more fruit cakes!!!!

          • Trippinhhard

            You and my husband eat all the fruit cake you can.. Eat enough for me, I don’t eat that.. I don’t know how to make them, my mother did and she’s dead.. So my husband buys himself several, to have with coffee in the mornings..

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Yum, Yum–Sometimes in the middle of the night, I will wake up and get a slice!!! I guess I will have to go search on how to make them.

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            There’s a place in I think Texas that makes a real good one. I research it and see if I can turn you on to it NAWS!
            I’ll be back.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thank you sweets!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            NAWS, I didn’t get anything from Doc. I still want to be able to order the fruitcake to be sent to you, but if you don’t want it now just let me know. It’s okay if for some reason you don’t want it.
            I’ll go ahead and order just the one for me…I’ll order it Friday after I get home from work. I’ll check in to see if there is a response either from Doc or on this thread before I put in the order. If it doesn’t work out, I’m sorry…I just wanted to send you some Christmas Cheer.

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            NAWS, I’ve found it. If you want one and we can figure out a way for me to get your address in a safe way, I’d be happy to have one sent one to you.
            Let me know if you want to do this.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Oh yes!!!!! I have to be home almost every day–especially in the a.m. What a neat thing that would be!!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Maybe you can let Doc know that we want to contact each other and we can do some emailing. She has my email address.
            That would give me great pleasure to do that. I’d be happy to send one to Trip too if we can contact as well!
            I’ve tried other fruitcakes, but this one by far was my favorite!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Will do. I will let her know now!!!! What a nice surprise!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            You just make me SMILE REAL BIG! 🙂 🙂 :)’s

            I’ll check my emails and see about putting in an order as soon as well get it all together.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I just gave her my address to give to you!!!! Thank you a billion, billion!!!! Wish we could share a slice together!!!!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Oh we will!
            I’ll will have mine and you’ll have yours when we both get them and we can share a chomp at the same time.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            ((((((Hugs))))))) Can’t wait!!!!! Who would have guessed a stupid fruit cake could bring sooooooooooo much joy!!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Well, I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed them. Years ago I actually had a number of them shipped to me and gave some to my family members at Christmas. They looked at me sort of side ways because you know what folks say about fruit cakes. But I think if they actually tasted them they may have actually liked them.
            My Mom really liked a little fruitcake during the season while she was with us here on the face of the planet. She was the one that turned me on to them. Loved my MOM and I still talk to her and my sis too even though they’re both soaring Angels now.

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Hey Girl…I keep checking my email but haven’t seen anything yet from Doc.
            I’ve started an order but I’m waiting to finish it because I’m going to have them send a fruitcake to me and then I want to send one to you.
            Is there a problem?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Maybe we could secretly tell YoYo’s kids about the cake too!!!! YoYo would go ballistic!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            That would be funny!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thank you–You are too sweet!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Well, to me, it would be such a treat to send you a treat. To be sure, I’ll send one to myself at the same time. Now you’ve got me all wound up for a good one! And I think it’s the bees knees.
            I can’t wait…I’m so stoked to have you test drive one!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I can’t wait!!!! We have really monopolized this post on fruit cakes and not the Treape kind!!!!!!!

            Heh Heh Hah Hah Hah Hah. You crack me up.
            I hope that Trip is reading our back and forths here because I’d like to send her one too if she wants one!

          • Raine Woman

            NAWS, no one is more deserving of a fruit cake than you! I hope you enjoy every bite! 🙂

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Raine,
            I couldn’t agree with you more, but for some reason somebody must think I’m some kind of pariah now and I really don’t know why.

            This actually hurts because I wanted to share something that has a little bit of remembrance for time with my Mom, with NAWS. While my Mom was here on Earth, she and I would have fruitcake. But, I’ll get over it.

            I’m going to order one for me anyway. For your information if you actually like fruitcake there’s a bakery in Corsicana, Texas that makes it. It’s called Collin Street Bakery. I’m not advertising for them but just sharing about a fruitcake that doesn’t have too much dried fruit in it. To me it has the perfect combination of ingredients.
            Happiest Holidays to YOU, Raine!

          • Raine Woman

            Tre’s – you really are one in a million. This world is a better place with you in it. The world…not just this site! 🙂

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            You’re too kind to say that. Bless your Sweet Heart!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            I love it NAWS. You are one of the few people I have ever known that admits that they actually like fruit cake. I like it too but not the kind that is overly filled with the “fruit” bits.

          • Poo

            With ya gal but we gotta keep fighting.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I am so sorry to hear that. I know you probably have tried everything. You are in my prayer Trip. (((((Hugs))))))

          • Trippinhhard

            You know it, I just deal with it, because there is nothing they can give me to stop it…. Going to the hospital is a waste of time and money..
            Thank you I need those prayers bad…

          • noarguingwithstupid

            It never ceases to amaze me how many really strong peeps are on these boards. And you are right–hospitals are huge money wasters!!!!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Ahhh Trip…I agree with what NAWS said below. I’m so sorry that this is happening to you. Sweetest Blessings and I keep you on my prayer list to get you some assistance…hopefully.
            Major Hugs during this Holiday Season!

          • Trippinhhard

            Thank you Tre I need those prayers badly, as soon as I think I’m doing better, something else comes up.. But I’m not giving up or giving in, I’m fighting at the way…

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            Keep it up Girl. We need you here with us on these Boards!

          • MorningYawn
          • I’m keeping you in my prayers. You’re a fighter, keep hope alive. I’m pulling for you. ♥︎

          • Tigdi

            I believe that is probably true. Don’t forget the big deal she made when Gigi was wearing basketball jerseys causing Yolanda to say she was “worried that her daughter was gay”.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Unfortunately, I think all of her kids are pretty much on their own now!

      • Trippinhhard

        Her son also, how old is he??

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Don’t know–she has really protected him and I am glad. I assume he is much younger than others.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I really can’t figure YoYo out. I think she might be a little bit, well, dumb!!!!

    • Tre’s Going to Prison

      Unfortunately, models aren’t always blessed with a bucket load of intelligence.
      But they’re easy on the eyes…so the guys don’t much give a flip about that part.

      • Ben_Dover

        In other words, pretty girls, overall aren’t intelligent. Nice stereotyping. Ship that thought off to Gloria Steinem, Loren Bacall, Sophia Loren, Helen Gurley Brown and any other ground breaking feminists who happened to be attractive.

        • Tre’s Going to Prison

          Uh no. I mean what I say and I said “models”. There are plenty of pretty and not so pretty people who are very intelligent, intellectual, smart, funny, goofy and yada yada yada including all of the so called negative stuff as well.
          Now Ben…howz about you bend over and take your stupid comment and well you know what comes next…don’t you Mr. Dover….

          • Ben_Dover

            Oh, please do spank me!

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            I wouldn’t touch that action with any length of rope.

      • gessiewtf

        She is not that pretty. I don’t think she really wants to be a model. She is at Parsons school of design, so I think she has other interests. You shouldn’t push your kids into being something. You should let them pursue their own dreams not yours.

        • Tre’s Going to Prison

          Great Points!

    • She strikes me as self-entitled who thinks her money can fix everything even a bad child.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        She has mentioned many times that her Dad died because of a drunk driver when she was seven years old.

        • Yes, so sad that’s why it’s ironic she would allow Bella anywhere near a car with a suspended license.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            With that in mind I can’t believe she doesn’t go bat S***** at the mention of a dui!!! It usually hits a family profoundly and the family members also.

          • Yeah…I would have said nomore NYC apartment. Come home and go to school locally.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I totally agree!!!!(That would imply that YoYo made a big mistake, though!!!!!!!!)

          • So true!!! Her inflated ego won’t allow her to.

          • Tre’s Going to Prison

            You know, those car services (uber?) is used by all sorts of people here in the L.A. areas. The clown should have done that instead of been such a wienie and driven her own car!

  • MorningYawn

    Whether you like the email or not (I thought it was incredibly heartfelt, I could feel her pain), my question is this… AN EMAIL!?!?!? Have a conversation with your child! Let her see your pain and fear AND disgust! I know it’s not very “Dutch” but it will offer connection! YOu can’t heal as a family through email. You can’t completely reprimand your child through email! Does the email go into a vacuum and is ignored in real life? Are their real life repercussions? Or only in cyber space?

    • 3!13

      Sometimes talking is not enough. I write letters via email or text to my husband when Im extremely hurt and angry. IMO, I think it sinks in better and you can also avoid the shouting match that may come with it

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Interestingly a poster on another blog pointed out to me that Yolanda makes out in her blog that she wrote this letter to Bella on the plane – yet she refers to collecting the car from the pound. Sounds like Yolanda is not being very honest.

      • Janice hammond

        I wondered about that statement also…

    • I just posted the same thing MY. Totally agree.

    • Juliana

      I am a true believer that in a moment of hurt or anger one should never put pen to paper (in this case even worse in a email). I wish she took out about 1/2 of what she wrote because her thoughts were in so many different directions. Is she upset more about the car representing the chaos of Bella or is it the drinking and driving she’s trying to hit home with?

      I feel that such a private thought expressed is now a public post to be picked a part by people like myself.

      I also find myself very disgusted by Bravo in how they handled this with their creative editing. Just the week before’s episode she’s having this lovely lunch with Bella, telling her she never has to worry about “her Bella” because she’s a old soul or some such wording, how she knows she will always be doing great in life because she’s always been like a independent person all her life. Then bam, this happened and knocked the wind out of Yolanda’s sails in the very next episode. Talk about the 1 millionth time Bravo has turned something tragic into a rating.

    • LaurenAnn

      Bella might have been in rehab or another program. Sounds like she was out of the house, probably out of the area…

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I wonder whether Gigi or Bella would have become models if it wasn’t for Yolanda’s determination? She seems quite pushy and her expectations of what these girls should become in life might be a lot of pressure to bear. I see Lisa’s son Max works as a server in SUR at times and is a musician. Kyle’s daughter Farrah works with the Agency as a realtor. I just can’t see Yolanda being proud if one of her offspring decided they wanted to just do something quite ordinary. Perhaps I’m wrong but I feel like Yolanda is so much more conscious of presenting this perfect package and her perfect successful offspring that it must be a lot to live up to. There’s a lot of emotional blackmail in that email “the life I have given you” and “poor Anwar his life is going to be miserable”?!!! Also why would Yolanda still be pushing Bella in to the murky world of modelling after this discovery?

    • Yes she does! I found it very odd that a mother would push her daughters into modeling the way YoFo does, on top of the fact she encourages them not to eat. That’s beyond selfish IMO. Seems borderline obsessive too. Like she wants to relive the wonder years through her daughters.

    • jane grey

      Massive emotional blackmail!

  • TartLemon

    Yolanda, you had a plan for your girls and tried to bully them into following YOUR pla, but did you ever really listen to what they had to say? I’d bet a mint Bella has tried to talk to you, but YOU DIDN’T LISTEN.

    • Yolie

      I agree, Yolanda has said repeatedly that her girls are better versions of her. It’s as if she’s living her dreams to it’s full potential. She’s forcing her dreams for herself on her girls.

    • Ben_Dover

      So, in other words, a bad decision on the part of a teenager can always be linked back to the mother? It is all Yo’s fault? Some shrinks and geneticists may beg to differ with you, as do I.

  • DLister

    I hope Bella is doing much better now and on a healthier path.

    • Ben_Dover

      So nice to see a kindhearted comment versus the hateful ones from perfect people posters. Addicts/substance abusers DO sometimes come from good, loving families.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Holy $hit…it seems like Bella was on everything!!

  • Honestly, I’m not trying to undermine YoFo’s parenting, but why didn’t this conversation happen face to face? All what she said was true. Bella could have not only hurt herself, but others, as well, if not killed them, and you can tell this came from a mother in a place of hurt, seeing her daughter spiraling out of control. My son is only 8 so I can’t even fathom us ever being in this position, however, I do think this conversation should of taken place face to face. Not saying it didn’t but …

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I take everything YoYo “says” she says as a grain of salt. I don’t think she even knows what she’s talking about half the time!!!

  • Used tampons in the car? There’s just no excuse for that kind of nastiness. Come the hell on, Bella.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      Agreed. That made me retch! Oh Jeezus!
      How old are you that you can’t clean up after yourself? Makes me question that person’s ‘personal’ hygiene too!
      Come on girl we learned the chit in 6th grade health class. GTFU!

      • Harleygirl0685

        Wait….what? That’s gross! Is that in the email? I’m on my phone and can’t read it cause it’s to small!!!! I just wanna know why anyone would have them in their car? WTF !!! Second thought no I dont…LOL

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          Yes it is & No, you don’t. LOL!

    • Harleygirl0685

      Hi Doc! Hows it going? Thanks for Spreading The Holiday Cheer! It inspired TigerLilly to spread it to me with a video so now I can spread it! I thought I was never gonna get in the spirit! But I am now! Happy Holidays!

      • Hi my Harley Girl! I’ve missed you. Hope you and Mr. Harley are doing well. How is his recovery coming along? I’m very happy to hear you’re getting into the spirit of the holiday. I’m doing my little part to spread the holiday cheer.

        • Harleygirl0685

          Hello my favorite Doc! We are all doing good thanks! Mr Harley…that just cracks me up by the way, is still not 100% only because of the dizziness he still has from the concussion! im pretty sure Santa is bringing us new helmets for Xmas ! I’m trying my hardest to get in the spirit, I don’t know what the hell is going on, I’ve never been like this! Im getting there though! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  • gessiewtf

    Yolanda, it’s not all about you. Maybe you should live in the dorm? Ya think? Maybe you should remove the stick from your butt, and parent in a genuine way. You had never seen the inside of her car? That’s odd. Maybe if you took a little bit of time away from worshiping My Love and being addicted to being sick, you would have noticed you had a middle child who wasn’t going to follow in your exact footsteps like Gigi-two almonds. Maybe you should have appreciated her for who she was and wanted to be. Maybe you should have gotten an education so that you would know how to spell and compose an e-mail. You should send Bella and your son to live with Muhammed. He was the one that insisted that his children go to college. You still don’t really believe it is necessary to be educated, that one should get through life on their looks. Maybe they don’t want to hear you go on and on about what a genius David Foster is, or listen to the Canadian Cantors. Bella is at a good school, and being away from you will do her some good.

    • sunnydays

      I wonder if selling Bella’s horse had something to do with this?

  • Brattus Rattus

    On a catty note, Yolanda clearly doesn’t write her own blog for Bravo. Now on to the email to Bella…
    If I received an EMAIL like that from my mom at that age, I would have read about one or two sentences and hit the delete button. An email? Seriously? You leave your “Love” and fly to where the hell ever your kid is and talk to them face to face. Yolanda is so superficial I can’t stand her. I’m not saying she has failed as a mother but I don’t think she’s concentrated on the right things. For her kid to have had all that crap in her car is a sign that things aren’t right and was screaming to be noticed.
    She needs to do a different job with her kids. Not better, but different. Stop worrying about how they look and worry about how they feel.

    • doja_cat

      So its ok to have drugs and blood stained pantys in ur car? All u ppl defending bella is just as nasty

  • no name

    I give Yolanda and David about 3 more years (and that is stretching it). Can’t see him staying with someone with such spoiled kids. What is Yolanda, his 4th wife?

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Ugh! Ikr? That is soooooooooo vile. Makes me ashamed to be female! LOL!

  • deb

    it seems Yolanda is more upset about the messy car than the DUI. not to mention the entire email goes on and on, how the DUI affects Yolanda, and not Bella. who leaves a 17 year old girl home alone while the mother is out of the country for weeks at a time. I myself think Yolanda does deserve a huge amount of the blame. get out of your LOVES ass for two minutes and pay attention to your children.

  • Vesper

    This email was composed in CA. It states at the beginning that Yolanda just picked up Bella’s car from the pound.

  • doja_cat

    This is fcking disgracful. Nasty!
