‘Real Housewife’ Yolanda Foster Claims She Has Lost The Ability To Read, Write, Watch TV


The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster is currently in the fight of her life. As some of you may know, the 51-year-old reality star has been battling Lyme disease for three years now. She was recovering very slowly and showing clear signs of improvement, but then she suffered a relapse in December of last year.

And things are pretty bad this time. In a blog post on BravoTV.com, Yolanda updated her fans on her condition and apologized for not blogging as frequently.

“I would like to apologize for my lousy participation in the blogging department at the moment. Although writing is usually my favorite thing to do, I unfortunately have lost the ability to do so in an intelligent matter at this time.”

She then continues by explaining how difficult the past few weeks have been for her:

“Most of you know I have been battling Lyme disease for the past three years. I wasted the first year trying to get diagnosed and spent the next two trying to find a cure. I have gone from the conventional long-term antibiotics to about every holistic protocol there is to offer.

Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60% recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back. I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.”

Even though she is struggling with the disease, she did manage a trip to Singapore last week to watch auditions for Asia’s Got Talent, a show her husband has been working hard on. During her visit, she had to visit Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital. She posted the photo you see down below to her Instagram account.


Yolanda hopes sharing her story will help her fellow “Lymies,” and she explained that one of the reasons she travels is because the FDA blocks the medicine she needs to recover.

“A lot of great medicines and ancient therapies are blocked by the FDA, so that’s why I choose to travel and recognize the value of diverse points of view in medicine.”
