Lovely and leggy Gigi Hadid, the 19-year-old fashion model who also happens to be “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Yolanda Foster’s daughter, has spoken to People Magazine about her Mom this week. Gigi reports that she’s,

“Very inspired” by how Yolanda is handling her fight with Lyme Disease. “She’s battling a tough one, but she’s helping a lot of people through her personal health journey. I think when she finally figures out how to help herself, she’ll be able to help a lot of other people.”

Gigi was in Miami last week to host Victoria’s Secret PINK Spring Break Bash with her boyfriend, Australian pop singer and actor, Cody Simpson. The 18-year-old, Cody, who is currently not signed to a record company, was last on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, Season 18, where he was paired with Whitney Carson. After being eliminated during week 5, he ended up coming in 9th in the competition. His latest gig is on this year’s season of Cougar Town where he plays a high school student. Gigi can be seen in Cody‘s videos, Surfboard and Flower, which you can find on YouTube.

This week, Gigi posted she’s at home and shows her working out. No doubt, she’ll be a big help to Mom Yolanda while she is there.

    Something is definitely knocking Yolanda down for the count; I do hope she can get through it and live a vibrant, loving life.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      One thing that has always concerned me is her diet. She doesn’t appear to eat balanced meals, she does those lemon cleanses, and she takes a SHITLOAD of vitamins (which can’t possibly be good for her).

      • DLister

        Vitamins and supplements when taken appropriately are definitely good for you to supplement a diet lacking in specific nutrition. That said — too many and irrelevant ones can indeed be damaging. So yes, I agree, Yolanda may be overloading her body. There is truth to “too much of a good thing.” 🙂

        • Sophia Z.

          Plus we don’t get daily insight into Yolanda’s diet. I have seen some episodes where she cooks some amazing and nutritious looking meals. She probably eats like that every day as we really don’t get a glimpse of what she is eating. I think Bravo focuses on some of the odder things she does with Lemons and the vitamins. I would imagine she is under a Doctor’s strict diet and adheres to that. xox

          • DLister

            I agree; I’m sure she is too. She still looks great and seems to have an amazing constitution, which will serve her well.

      • GinaXOXO

        Maybe you’re right. I have always felt that her diet was helping her and that she would be worse of without watching what she eats and taking vitamins.

        I find holistic health very interesting always promise myself that I am going got find a good holistic DR but . . . still haven’t.

  • Sophia Z.

    Yolanda’s journey through her illness has been difficult for her. I wish her recovery from what sounds like a horrible disease. May God bless her always.

    • DLister

      You are so sweet! I agree. Yolanda is a very decent soul.

      • Sophia Z.

        I finally think I figured out why some people don’t like Yolanda. She’s northern European. Northern Europeans usually come off as cold and uncaring when in reality that couldn’t be farther than the truth. Yolanda has great values in life and seems to know what is important; love and compassion.
        You’re very sweet, D. Thank you. 😉

        • DLister

          I agree, and I don’t see Yolanda as cold, in fact, she has a loving heart. She carries herself tall and with dignity. In today’s American culture, I feel that that can be interpreted as “cold” and “snobby.” But I find it to be true class.

          Now, to be silly: If I lived in Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland, I think I would always be “cold!” And I hate herring.

          • Sophia Z.

            LOL, I hate herring also. The food in those places leaves much to desired but they make some incredible desserts.

            I did get upset last year when Yolanda jumped on the bandwagon to do whatever was going on to Lisa V., via Brandi’s “problem” with her. But things seem to have evened out as Yolanda appears to have learned that she will not have that close of a relationship with Lisa V. I’m confused at why Lisa V wants to stay distant from Yolanda – even before Brandi became a leach to Yolanda. Yolanda seems to be an ideal friend to anyone. She is loyal, caring and kind to everyone she comes across.

            As far as a fan base, I’m shocked at some of the things people have to say about her as most people do not seem to like her. It’s perplexing. Other than what I said in the post above, I can’t seem to find anything else people wouldn’t like about her.

          • DLister

            Darling Sophia, as to your first sentence, last paragraph — it’s jealousy. I think many women are threatened by how collected and dignified this woman is, not trashy, and there’s a jealousy — instead of inspiration. Know what I mean? Just my two cent observation!

          • Sophia Z.

            I believe in humanity a little more than narrowing it down to a considerable amount of people being jealous of someone they will never know on a deeper level. I guess I would believe ignorance in their belief that Yolanda is not like them therefore the cold shoulder. I don’t see an overwhelming dislike to Lisa V and when I do encounter it, it’s not about what Lisa has in life, it’s usually complaints of their perception of Lisa and her actions, or lack of. So why would that be different than Lisa V? To me it is ignorance of Yolanda’s culture and perceptions of her behavior or comments in twisting it to fit an agenda of being “against” their favorite housewife.

            If it is indeed jealousy as you have suggested here. I suggest those people stop watching the show and start working on achieving their own dreams in life.

            I am so concerned that Yolanda is going to be the one to announce that she is leaving RHOBH. There was a report out that there is a smoking gun and that someone announces they are leaving. I hope it isn’t Yolanda. If it is I understand that she needs to work on her health. But, by God, when she is well I want her back on my TV doing a show to help us with our health, fashion, style, cooking and maybe loving and supporting other women.

            What do you think?? Would you watch??

          • Sophia Z.

            Ugh, I would be so sad if Yolanda left RHOBH. She is the voice of sanity. Of course I would understand if she did. No one seems to appreciate her for her sweet heart and loyalty. Plus her health is the most important issue.
            Definitely I would watch any show she was on if she decided to do so. I like your idea of a show. It seems to fit her perfectly. Good idea, Gina!

          • GinaXOXO

            My Grandma was Norweagian. And my Grandma would always make herring for Christmas. It stuck. I never even tried it to be honest. But, she also made lefsa (sp) and peppernaughts (sp) and they are fabulous!! I made both from her recipe and never appreciated enough how much time she put into making things for us. XOXOXO to my Grandma.

          • DLister

            Hi, Gina! Please tell me, what are those foods? I love learning ethnic cooking. I so appreciate you sharing! Your grandmother sounds like she was wondrous — aren’t all grandmas? Mine were the best too — my dad’s mom made the world’s best matzoh balls and homemade horseradish! OMG, heaven! 🙂

          • GinaXOXO

            I would like to see your matzoh ball recipe.

            I really did a horrible job of spelling. Pfeffernusse–we call them pepper nuts. BUT here is a recipe I found online. I haven’t compared it to the one I have except I noticed that we use molasses. They take forever to slice and need to be very thin.

          I don’t know–Yolanda doesn’t come off as cold to me at all. She is such a loyal honest friend. She seems to be very supportive of women. I think people quit liking Yolanda when she felt LVP wasn’t a good friend to her.

          • Sophia Z.

            Hi Gina! I used to post on Bravo’s site before they shut down their comments section. Even before the LVP incident, people were saying the nastiest things about her on there. I never got it, how people could be so rude and cruel about a nice person who seems to live her life in a heartfelt way.

    • GinaXOXO

      Absolutely. What a beautiful family inside and out.

      I hope Yolanda gets well and then gets her own show that David mentioned years ago. I would watch Yolanda teach us about health and battling a chronic disease. If they add in some decorating tips and/or fashion it would be a bonus.

      I LOVE her style. Wouldn’t it be great if she would show us how to put together a fabulous look like she always has–I don’t think she has any missteps. She always looks so well put together.

      • Sophia Z.

        Plus she is so likable and lovable.
        I never heard David mention a show?!? Interesting. He seems to support her very well.
        I like her style also. She isn’t cookie cutter at all.
