‘RHOBH’ David Foster Gets Candid About His Split From Yolanda Hadid

Many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans aren’t completely surprised with the split between Yolanda Hadid, 52, and producer ex-husband, David Foster, 66.

The reality couple broke the news on the night of the RHOBH premiere, and reactions were mixed. Nevertheless, despite the big split, the two are on “good” terms. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability gala last week, Foster said,

“Her and I are really good.” He added, “I feel OK about it, and I’m just happy to be here. I’m fine being by myself.”

Yolanda and David wed in 2011, and months later, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. According to Yolanda her illness forced her to take a step back from full dedication to David, to focus on getting well. Then, on Dec. 1, 2015, just months after Yolanda‘s symptoms saw an improvement, the couple announced they were parting ways after just over four years of marriage.

Since their divorce, David has been linked to Selma Blair and the pair were spotted on a date earlier this month. At the time, it was noted that Caitlyn Jenner was also seen chatting with the rumored couple briefly.

When Yolanda appeared on Watch What Happens Live in December, she explained how her battle with Lyme disease played a role in the breakup, she admitted that it definitely placed a strain on the marriage,

“Unfortunately it was not strong enough to withstand the circumstances that came our way,” she continued, and “Well, chronic long-term illness is extremely challenging,” Yolanda added. “Not only for the person sick but also for the caregiver. It for sure changed the dynamic of the relationship.”

Despite splitting from her “love,” Yolanda explained that she doesn’t want to focus on the negatives between the couple, and instead, she wants to honor the good times they shared.

“The truth is that we both worked through the difficult time through the best of our ability, so rather than judging what went wrong, I pick to honor the great times that we shared the last nine years. There were a wealth of good times.”

Yolanda was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 and has since struggled to treat her deteriorating condition. However, in a surprising turn of events, Yolanda shared that she’s made some positive strides in her recovery,

“I am much better since the last time that I saw you,” she told Cohen. “I have about 60 percent better brain function than I did in the last year. I can still only live and plan one day at a time. The exciting thing is watching the episodes and inspiring me, and I could see the progress that I have made. I am excited and grateful for that. I will continue to fight for a full recovery.”

Tell us what you think. Do you think David and Yolanda are on good terms?

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    I have filed for divorce from Yolanda…in my terms she must flock back to her lemon grove FAR AWAY from social media…Never use the words ‘My Love’ again and must treat all her children equally

    • annamaria10

      That “My Love” stuff needs to be banned from the English language….just hideous.

  • chacha1

    Again, who diagnosed her with Lymes ? It never happened. She may be sick with over botoxing and breast implants that exploded (so she says) that were replaced 10 years ago, and from a cow sucking her chin, but, she does not have Lymes ….. nor do her children who both seem just fine to play football and travel the world walking runways as a model

    • Morning Cha! Yo’s quack doc diagnosed her so basically she doesn’t have lymes.

      • chacha1

        Ohhhh LOL my bad 🙂

  • Sandy Wood

    “Her and I are really good”…”I feel OK about it, and I’m just happy to be here. I’m fine being by myself.”
    Sounds like courteous, gentlemanly stock responses. Good for him.

    • chacha1

      ITA

    • sideof Sour Cream

      My guess is that he’s relieved. “Happy” to be away from her insanity. No animosity, just grateful the marriage is over.

  • MidwestMiddie

    “Her and I …….?”
    There must be a song in there ……..somewhere.

    • Hilarious! Good Tuesday morning to you.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Good Morning, Doc!!
        : )

    • OhSnarkyMe

      I think it’s called “My 4th grade English teacher rolling in her grave”

      • MidwestMiddie

        Perfect!

  • chacha1

    Good Morning to everyone, have to leave now but will be back later 🙂

    • See you later Cha! Have a good one.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Have a good one, Chacha.

  • Yolo Idid a Hadid

    Her brain function is 60% better then before, when her brain only had 60% function,

    That means Yolandas brain now works on 120%, she sure IS EXTRA ORDINARY even in her recovery, not only did Lyme make her into a psychic, but now her brain maxes out on 120 % brain-function!!!

    • SassyMcAsspants

      60% of 60% is 36%, therefore, she’s at 96% brain function, lol. Either way, she’s still an idiot. 😀

      • Yolo Idid a Hadid

        OK 🙂

        • SassyMcAsspants

          I do, kind of, like the idea of Yonutter having some janked up “super” powers. Remember the show Greatest American Hero? LMAO.

          • Yolo Idid a Hadid

            She is the best there ever was at being sick, and the best in recovering 🙂

          • Sandy Wood

            In Yolanda’s mind, everything she does is the biggest, baddest, bestest…her Lyme is the most challenging, her implant mess was the worst the doctor had ever seen, her kids are the most talented…ya Yo, we get it.

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            And in her rush to give birth, for the safety of her son, she literally broke her back in the process! Stayed in bed for a year in an Arabian mansion, then got back on the horse…(a real horse!), run up and down stairs, up and down her ridiculous lime grove steps. I thought broken backs caused very real problems, but said, and showed us, that she was in tip top shape for DF.

          • chacha1

            her brain swells bigger than anyone else even though anyone else would have to have a piece of skull removed to relieve the pressure

          • Blackheath

            “Believe it or not, I’m walking on air, I never thought I could feel so free”.

          • SassyMcAsspants

            YAY! That’s for getting the reference, Blackheath. Makes me smile, that show was hilarious.

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            I had a preteen crush on him. William Katt looked like a surfer dude to me.

          • Nick’s daughter

            😅 😆 I remember, too Sassy & Blackheath…

      • RHWOBelfortHills

        lol. I totally do not understand the math. BTW…how in the h#ll does someone estimate their daily brain function? I really want to know.

        • Nick’s daughter

          Great question, inquiring minds Want to Know…me, too!!
          Keep in mind, Yo Knows when her brain is swelling (😂) & can get herself taken to the hospital whenever That happens!! 😉

  • Thomas Crane

    I wonder if David was cool with the ex whore that is Yolanda’s health advocate. If I were him, I would not be happy that she was on the payroll.

    • Nick’s daughter

      Daisy was last seen sobbing at Yo’s ‘Award’ ceremony & before that…making lattes @Yo’s. Some “Health advocate” she is!!

    • chacha1

      I heard Daisy is good at pulling two foot worms out of Yolanda’s ass …. (her words not mine)

      • Thomas Crane

        Bella isn’t good enough to pull the tapeworms out of Yolanda’s ass.

  • Vogue

    Yolanda is professional golddiger with no doubt. I bet she married him to use his name and connection to start something for herself. Remember when she first joined RH, she wanna be Martha Stewart and since that didn’t work out she no wanna find cure for Lyme. She was never diagnose with Lyme diseased by a legit doctor. she said to Andy, she feels better, but even she doesn’t know how. Cause she doesn’t really wanna share her journey. I bet she is trying to get her prenup broken and make some money, that’s why she keep over exaggerating every thing. Another intersting fact, it’s been confirmed that she signed some agreement with David when she got married that she can’t talk bad about him to press, yet she keep saying that my illness cost this separation which puts the blame on David for being an asshole leaving a dying wife. She is some nasty witch.

    • justanothermary

      Where was it confirmed that Yo can’t speak badly of David? I’ve heard the rumors but the prenup has never been disclosed (that I know of) and I would love to see it.

      • Cookie Lyons

        And you never will. These things are not public info. Why do people think they have the right to invade very private things about these reality tv personalities? You are a REAL person, are you disclosing these type things about your life? Jeez…

        • justanothermary

          Wow – you’re a nasty piece of work to me today. What have I ever done to you? My point is, I don’t think it ever was confirmed that Yo has an agreement to not speak badly of David. Someone on a blog suggested it once and people keep repeating it, as if it is true.

        • OhSnarkyMe

          Gee I don’t know, maybe because Yoliar has accepted a paycheck from Bravo to be on a television show that is all about her personal life? Could that possibly be it????

        • Blackheath

          I don’t think justanothermary stated that she had a “right”, she just said she would love to see it as I am sure many would. No different than wanting to see what actors/actresses/singers list of demands on their contract rider or finding out who really shot JFK.

          • JustSayin

            I wanted to post something similar, but didn’t want it to be taken as combative. Glad you said it.

          • Nick’s daughter

            I believe there IS a non-disclosure agreement between David & Yo. The point of having one is to keep Some of their private info from becoming Public! Just my non-combative opinion…😉 & contribution to the conversation. 😊

    • chacha1

      None of David’s “A” list friends wanted to be around her and Brandi

  • justanothermary

    Yoyo has NEVER been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Why do they keep saying this? Chronic Lyme or Neurological Lyme are totally different things and (at least some experts believe) they do not exist! Also, it was proven the date with Selma and Caitlyn stopping by to chat never happened either.

  • justanothermary

    There is nothing “candid” about this article. For some reason it annoys me when someone tries to give a great headline to a nothing piece of writing. Also, when these bloggers continually write things like “she was diagnosed with Lyme disease” some people believe it. Yo does not have, nor has she ever had Lyme disease, by her own admission.

    • Cookie Lyons

      by her own what? lol She has never said she doesn’t have lyme. Stop making things up.

      • UndergroundExpress

        True. But what gets me is that she said she contracted it from a horsefly on Dr. Oz. You get it from ticks not horseflies. So it makes me think she never had it in a way by her own admission.

        • Blackheath

          Frankly I think it was those leaky boobs that caused all of her issues.

          • UndergroundExpress

            Me too. Silicone poisoning

          • Nick’s daughter

            ITA, Blackheath! *and side note to Yo, hers is Not/was NEVER an “invisible illness” that she needs to make “affordable for All”. Not every woman can afford implants, we don’t All need them. Even if she donated funds to reconstructive surgery for women or to CFS Research, She cannot redeem herself!! Yolanda has Gone. Too. Far. Now, her ‘journey’ goes Off My tv 📺.

        • Susan Kevin Simmont

          Your !00% Right… I have Lime and It was from a tick bite.. & Never did I have to sleep for 10 months My brain didn’t freeze so forth Thats what Happen when you have so much money you don’t no what to do with it So Sad….

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            Yeah, but it is not really so sad. She traded her marriage and integrity for it, so it is her choice more than a condition. You tell the truth, and I’ll bet you are healthier and happier for it.

          • chacha1

            and she pays and ex hooker $200 an hour who says she is a health advocate and she spends all day on the internet making up labels for fake test tubes so Yolanda can post it on Instagram and sell the pictures to social media ….. one label was so bad it listed Not GiGi’s birthday as something like 10/234/78

        • chacha1

          I wish she would have told him about her “cow sucking chin disease”

      • JustSayin

        I thought there was an interview where she admitted she was self-diagnosed…

      • justanothermary

        She says she has chronic Lyme and now she is saying she has neurologic Lyme. She has also admitted that no MD was ever able to diagnose her. I am not making things up.

        • Yolo Idid a Hadid

          On Dr Oz she told that the doctors diagnosed her with Chronic fatigue syndrome, but she didnt agree with that diagnose, she desided to go with the quack diagnose of neurological lyme, makes her feel more special and unique.

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            I saw clips of that, with Dr Oz giving the concerned look and hand pats. Chronic fatigue from what? This woman has embellishment issues, entitlement issues, lazy issues… Lisa Rinna really shouldn’t have shouldered or admitted guilt regarding the Munchhausen. The definition on Web MD describes her in every way. How is anyone in the world buying her story? Most of us have worked 12 hour days, picked up infants and toddlers, gone to the store, cooked, cleaned, laundry, purge old outgrown clothes, go get new, keep up with homework and school meeting, taxi children around, etc etc, without the luxury of even being able to schedule a Dr appt. for them to say that we have chronic fatigue.

          • Nick’s daughter

            Yes. I saw that, Also. How OUTRAGEOUS of Yo, she didn’t like her CFS diagnosis, so she picked a Lyme or two!! Yo mocks CFS & infuriates 😠people by choosing Her Own diagnoses as if she were ordering off a Menu!!

          • chacha1

            how she manages with that brain that always swells when she want to stay home or not attend the reunion

        • Susan Kevin Simmont

          I agree….

          • justanothermary

            Thank you! Apparently Cookie Lyons has singled me out for the day – heavy sigh.

  • Cookie Lyons

    Why are we holding up David Foster to such high standards? The man is a serial groom and cheater. zzzzzzzz

    • JustSayin

      That’s how bad Yofo is, she makes people feel sympathy for David, who always came off as an extreme douchebag in my opinion.

      • SassyMcAsspants

        Agreed, JS!

      • BigBrothersMother

        My sentiments exactly, JS.

      • RHWOBelfortHills

        So true. That short marriage had to have cost him a fortune. I wonder if he and MH are still close. Remember he met Yo thru him, because at the time, David was going to move into MH’s mansion. Does anyone think now David has gone back to MH since then and said…WTF man?!

        • JustSayin

          Lol I know I’d hold a grudge, but guys are different. David might be like wtf man? And Mohammad could be like, that’s what you get for taking my sloppy seconds. Eww but yeah lol

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            hahahah! You are so right, that conversation could have actually happened.

          • chacha1

            hahahaaaaa

      • chacha1

        Maybe David just put up with her bullshit because she just had to do the show. She was the one who put all his Grammy’s on display and had those dinner parties when she invited skags like Brandi Glanville ….

        • Viva La Diva

          nah….i think ol’ david pulled a kelsey grammar and set up yo-yo. “here’s a show – see ya!”

    • chacha1

      Doesn’t make him a bad person, his big mistake was not listening to Mohamed when he said to not marry her ….. he knew first hand how nasty and mean Yolanda is

  • Marsbars09

    No, I don’t think David & Yonuts are on good terms. I think David is p*ssed that his marriage did not turn out as “planned” with Yonuts. Also, Yonuts did not want to talk about her divorce on the reunion and broke down in tears at one point.

    • Viva La Diva

      i think the opposite. david has no problem dumping one and moving on to the next. yolanda is the disappointed one.

  • Pandora403

    Yolanda may not have gotten that life and style show she wanted. Her marriage may have crumbled. Her health is questionable, for lack of a better word. But she managed to turn 3 children into big money makers so let’s give the woman credit for that…..lol.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      LOL. You know what really bothers me about the way Yolanda is with Gigi and the other ones? Being a model is really about luck – genes and being in the right place at the right time – than it is about hard work or skill. IMO Gigi is bordering on Zoolander territory when she speaks – her excitement over those cheese dippers and talk about how hard it is being a model and being nice all day cause major side eye from me.

      • RHWOBelfortHills

        I remember there was a small video or something where Gigi said that her mom networked and negotiated her contracts (and no doubt for the other two). She most certainly had all the energy and brain function required to conspire with the likes of Kris Kardashian, and anyone else that would assist in that goal. I remember seeing a tour of her home that she did, right before, or the beginning of her tenure at HW. The interviewer brought up how she was a new housewife and she stated then that there was an ‘endgame’ for going on the show. I heard long ago that she wanted the lifestyle show, but I do not see where she is especially talented or watchable. Anyone with unlimited funds can shop, pick lemons, and arrange vegetables in baskets. I honestly have not seen her do anything worth Pinterest level. So, my theory has always been that this Lymes is Plan B, and there is no one that can stop her in her journey being the self appointed poster woman for her cause. Didn’t she not even show up for some event recently where she even has an honorary chair for the charity or alliance? She has menopause and had leaky implants and wants/needs attention. Ugh.

        • Pandora403

          One of my very best friends lives in Columbia County, NY which is the “Lyme Capitol” of NY. She has had Lyme twice and even her dog had Lyme disease. She went to the doctor, took the antibiotic treatment, and was fine. So was the dog. I live in a different county which is rural and there are plenty of wooded areas. In 15 years I have never contracted Lyme nor have any of my dogs. In fact, no one I know in my area has ever come down with Lyme disease. Are we just plain lucky? Or is Yolanda + 2 of her kids just the unluckiest people on earth? Decisions….decisions…..

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            IKR?!

          • chacha1

            My girlfriend had it 40 years ago, was diagnosed and treated and it went away

          • KKLS30

            Not to mention Yo claims they all contracted it in a way the CDC does not recognize and only has been referenced in one article of The New England Journal of Medicine around 1990. The odds are astronomical for 3 members of a family in California to have contracted that illness in that fashion then add in that Gigi has a diagnosed autoimmune illness too then it becomes clear that Yo isn’t terribly unlucky just a terrible liar. And I loathe a terrible liar because if you insist upon lying to me don’t insult my intelligence too. At least try to be believable.

          • Viva La Diva

            she describes the symptoms of “lupus.” i think she just got her disease names mixed up when running down the list of “what can i fake, what can i fake…”

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          I think something similar – Yolanda is not even likeable let alone relatable so there was never going to be a lifestyle show no matter how many lemons she put on the table. I think she is uber competitive even with friends and when she realized she wasn’t going to win the race she staged a fall so she had an excuse. Her dinner parties were put together by that butler guy Richard – all she did was pick a few things off the menu.

          • RHWOBelfortHills

            ITA. Good assessment. And true about the menu picking. Remember when she ‘designed’ the interior of one of MH’s homes, propped pictures ,whipped out a tape measure, and chastised Spanish speaking men? Remember MH’s reaction something like ‘wow, I didn’t expect this’. I thought then that it sounded like a favor he did her allowing her to show off her skills on her tv show, but not really expecting high end results. And it was very basic imo. Just another expensive sterile and beige type of thing. It also came out that the interior designing part of MH’s business went to Yolanda in the divorce, or something like that. Why doesn’t she ever talk about that?

      • Pandora403

        Don’t most employers expect you to be “nice all day?” Let Gigi try being a customer service rep. Let her try dealing with some of these looney-tunes and I’ll bet she wouldn’t last an hour.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Exactly. Try having to be nice when you are paid not much more than minimum wage and you work in an industry where people treat you like dirt all day.

        • bellota

          RIght? Or try not being born into extreme wealth and privilege and trying to make it in any industry. Try having to worry about how to pay for your housing, education, and food with no safety net.

      • Viva La Diva

        OR when your mom was a former “supermodel” and can open all the doors we plebeians have to bust down over and over.

    • EP

      Welcome back Pandora!! I’ve missed you much. 🙂

      • Pandora403

        Thanks, EP. I’ve missed you very much, too. I know Daisy let you all know why I haven’t been around lately. But it’s nice to be back. I needed to return to some of my usual routines for my own sanity. It’s always good to come here because I know I’ll have at least one laugh for the day. And I can use a little laughter in my life right now.

        • EP

          Yes, Daisy did fill us in, and I didn’t want to mention anything, unless you felt comfortable talking about it. I’m so very sorry, and extend my deepest sympathies. I can’t even imagine how painful this time has been for you. I want you to know(which I think you already do) that if you ever need to talk it through, or just shoot the breeze about absolutely nothing, WE are here to lend an ear, regardless. Big {{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}} & KISSES💋💋💋

          PS I was very very excited to see your name on the board!!!

          • Pandora403

            I truly appreciate your kind words and condolences. I don’t think I could possibly talk about the loss of my husband without turning this place into a grief therapy encounter. People come here to have fun and I don’t want to spoil things for anyone. But please know that I thank each and every one of you for your compassion. It means a lot to me and I thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

          • EP

            No pressure, just wanted to let you know you have friends here and we are always willing to listen, about anything. ❤️

          • Viva La Diva

            sometimes the anonymity of the internet can be nice, as in a place to open up and pour your heart out. i don’t know you but my sincerest condolences on your loss.

          • Pandora403

            Thank you for your kind thoughts. They are truly appreciated. While I know many people are sympathetic this is not the forum for me to discuss my broken heart. I’m certain there are people here who would say “Very sad that her husband passed but there are other forums to discuss your grief.” And they’d be right. The last thing I want to be is a Debbie Downer. So onward and upward with our snarky comments about the housewives.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Seems they are both just churning out the same lines.
    Yolanda has gone to Tahiti on holiday. I’m sure her condescending smug IG posts of the beach etc are great inspiration and motivation for all of her fellow chronic Lyme sufferers, particularly those who have to go to work today, run a home, look after a family…
    Funnily some of her adoring fans thought she was on her way to France to see Ellie as her sister posted that friends and family were arriving to her bedside. Maybe they didn’t raise enough on the gofundme for Yolanda to make the journey.

    • RHWOBelfortHills

      Wow, you are right about Tahiti. Saw the pics and the martyr comments. She can’t make it down the road for her job but needs to go to Tahiti to heal because the same can not be done in Malibu or BH. Who’s holding the camera for the yoga pose and the just the right breeze? Yeah, should be very inspiring for her fellow sufferers at work, running families….just like you said. Gah!

      • chacha1

        she is a cold hearted gold digging ahole ……

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        IKR? I don’t know how anyone with a debilitating illness can follow her or be inspired by her. Debbie Gibson has Lyme too and I read that she said she would never post a sick selfie because she just wants to focus on the positive each day. Yolanda wants to be sick…or at least she did until she filed for divorce.

    • chacha1

      disgusting bitch and her fake ass …..

    • KKLS30

      Wow even I had assumed she was going to be with Ellie as she has reached the point of her illness that she has been most terrefied of. I find her horrid and even I feel bad for what she is now experiencing. Ellie has even designated her as the person to sort of take Gracie under her wing when she dies. She genuinely loves Yo as much as much as one horrible person can love another horrible person. Ugh and as rich as Yo is there was no reason she couldn’t have adjusted her schedule a bit to be with her alleged bestie. Just ugh.

      • bellota

        Yo is selfish and only thinks about herself. She loves to talk about “true friends” and b!tch about which people visited her often enough or at the right moments when she was sick, but she never seems to reciprocate and offer support when other people go through tough times.

        • Viva La Diva

          she only wants true friends that are poorer than her, and have no man. then she can feel like the queen she believes to be.

  • TartLemon

    I think David/Yolanda are on GREAT terms as long as they don’t have to speak to one another or be in the same space. IMO, Yolanda’s Lyme’s symptoms will disappear just like Camille’s IBS suddenly disappeared. They don’t need the excuse anymore.

    • ScrappieONE

      Could you imagine living with Yotnuts and the constant complaining and Lyme talk.

    • bellota

      Well, at least IBS is stress-induced so it is plausible that if you remove the stressor, you get better and don’t have so many problems. So it may very well be BS, but it is way more believable than Yo
