We have yet to meet Yolanda H. Foster, Season 3’s newest addition on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but we are learning a lot about her personal health issues.

In an interview with the New York Post, Yolanda revealed she suffered depression after the difficult birth of her third child, Anwar, 13 years ago. During his delivery, Yolanda’s son had an allergic reaction, and in the ensuing panic, her back was broken in three places. She also discovered a tumor on her thyroid a few years later. Although a surgery determined the growth was benign, it was still a huge scare for Yolanda, whose mom had breast cancer.

“Thank God she is still alive today. But it has been in the family,” she said. As for her own tumor, she admitted she “did have a scare and all the drama that comes with it.”

She also revealed that — besides longtime friend Lisa Vanderpump — she’s closest to new full-time housewife Brandi Glanville. After what we’ve heard about their first meeting, we can’t wait to see how that relationship develops!
