Yolanda Hadid held steady during this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when it came to confusion and chatter about her battle with Lyme disease. Many of women didn’t quite believe all her symptoms, thought her posts on social media were contradicting, and flat out thought the former model was “manipulative!” Click through to find out which housewives doubted her journey and why!
Yolanda turned up to Lisa Rinna’s birthday dinner and shocked most of the women by wearing no makeup. Lisa Vanderpump said in her confessional Yo should have covered up the circles under her eyes while Ken Todd expressed she looked sickly.
To Kyle Richards' surprise, Yolanda revealed that her two youngest children Anwar wand Bella Hadid were both diagnosed with Lyme.
Former housewife Taylor Armstrong told the women she almost had to unfollow Yolanda on social media because of all the “sick selfies” of needles, tubes, and medication she posts.
LVP claimed that Anwar and Bella’s father, Mohamed Hadid, told her the children did not have Lyme disease. After which, Yolanda provided the Brit with their medical records to prove she was wrong!
Lisa Rinna had a conversation during which she brought up the term “Munchausen’s syndrome” to the other women in reference to Yolanda. It is “a mental disorder in which a person repeatedly and deliberately acts as if he or she has a physical or mental illness when he or she is not really sick.”
Rinna became “enraged” when Yolanda went to lunch with Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville instead of going to close-friend Erika Girardi’s dinner party. She claimed Yolanda uses her illness as a convenient way to get out of things.
Kyle was an emotional wreck at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala because she felt guilty she gossiped about Yolanda’ disease and brought up Yolanda’s children.
In one episode, Yolanda brought doubtful LVP and Kyle to try cryotherpay, which is “the use of extreme cold in surgery or other medical treatments” to treat benign and malignant tissue damage.
Kyle insinuated that Yolanda’s symptoms were too broad and maybe she was dealing with something like depression or menopause which made her feel worse.
