Yolanda Hadid’s Memoir Slams Ex David Foster For Saying “Your Sick Card Is Up”
Yolanda Hadid is opening up about her four-year marriage to David Foster and why things suddenly ended in 2015.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star spills all her secrets in her new memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease.
From her ongoing health battle to the troubles in her marriage, the mother of three holds nothing back in the book, which is expected to be released this September.
The 53-year-old’s Lyme disease battle has been well documented on RHOB, but very few know just how painful and emotional the journey has been for the former model.
“Too many nights I found myself lying naked on the bathroom floor, the only relief being the cold tiles on my bare skin, wondering how much more pain I could take and how many more days, months, and years I could suffer,” she writes in the book, which was obtained by the Daily Mail.
“There were plenty of times when I thought that I wouldn't make it through the night alive, and others where I wished and prayed that I would die.”
Not only would she spend days inside, she experienced hair loss, among other grueling symptoms.
“My migraines become much more severe, lasting three to four days...I experienced severe hair loss but I fixed that with hair extensions.”
“Plus I have so many crazy symptoms like joint pain, cramps in my toes and fingers, exhaustion, insomnia and anxiety — all of it is overwhelming my entire system.”
Unfortunately, the blonde beauty’s health struggles took a definite toll on her marriage to David, whom she wed around the same time she was diagnosed with the disease.
However, the music composer filed for divorce in 2015 after four years of marriage and told Yolanda, “Your sick card is up.”
And, to top it all off, her co-stars on RHOBH had a hard time believing her illness and even went so far as to say she had Munchausen syndrome, which is when someone feigns illness to receive sympathy.
“I am starting to feel the very toxic energy that has entered my atmosphere, mainly from being on the Housewives and probably my children's visibility in the world,” she shares.
“I kind of expected the women to have my back while filming in the same way I've protected them throughout difficult times in their personal lives on the show.”
She continues, “I have a lot of factual information in the vault that could discredit them and their lives, but I've chosen to work with integrity and point out their strengths instead of their weaknesses."
