The season 6 stars of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" are having skeptical thoughts with Yolanda Foster's 2012 Lyme disease diagnosis. According to Design & Trend, some of the cast members of the reality television show are wondering if the Dutch-born interior designer has been exaggerating her sickness.
The issue was revealed in the preview clip released for the sixth season of RHOBH. It showed Kyle Richards discussing with some of the cast members about the severity of Foster's condition. In a report by Reality TV World, it detailed that Foster previously admitted that she went through a bad phase with her Lyme disease. She said that she wasn't able to write, read and watch TV for a while. She also revealed that two of her children have the same condition as hers.
But instead of giving out support, the housewives of Beverly Hills questioned her sickness. They even went as far as saying that Foster has Munchausen syndrome, which is defined as a "psychiatric factitious disorder wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves."
"They like to prey on the weak. You're sick, so let's go after you," friend Brandi Glanville tells Foster in the clip. In another cut scene, Foster demands, ""You have some balls, tell me you said it!"
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Richards spoke up about the issue that emerged. According to her, Yolanda's condition is very confusing for a lot of people.
"A lot of the things she's gone through and the treatments she's done, for some of the cast members they were questioning exactly what she was doing and exactly how sick she was. It was not a good situation," stated Richards.
She also mentioned that she and the other girls have their own reasons for questioning, hinting that something came up that initiated the doubt. Fans will have to watch out for the whole story when "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 6 returns on Dec. 1 on Bravo.
