Lisa Rinna Says She Sensed Something Wrong with Yolanda and David Foster
"Something's going on emotionally that she's not dealing with," the soap star said of filming Season 6 of #RHOBH.
After Yolanda Foster and David Foster announced their divorce last week, the couple has received an outpouring of support from their fellow Bravolebs during this difficult time. Yolanda's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Lisa Rinna expressed her sympathy for the couple once again during the latest episode of Heather Dubrow's podcast released Tuesday. "I'm incredibly sad for them. I'm incredibly sad for anyone that has gone through a divorce," Lisa said. "I have never gone through a divorce, but I have close friends who have gone through divorces recently, and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone, really, to be honest with you. I think it is a very, very difficult, horrible thing to go through."
However, Lisa wasn't necessarily surprised to hear the news of the couple's divorce. While filming Season 6 of RHOBH with Yolanda, she felt like the former model was experiencing pain beyond her battle with Lyme disease. "You will see me sensing something going on, and it's not being talked about, and I keep saying there's something going on that's not being talked about, basically," Lisa explained to Heather. "I always believe, and I truly in my heart know that Yolanda Foster is ill and she does have Lyme. That is no question. But what I don't think that people think about is sometimes you have to connect your head to your heart and figure out what's going on emotionally in your life that you're not dealing with."
Though Yolanda and David have appeared on RHOBH for most of their marriage, Lisa doesn't think reality TV or the pressures of Hollywood are to blame for the couple's divorce. "I think, for me, it has to do with whether you're compatible, whether you put the work in, whether you spend enough time together," Lisa said. "I mean, there's so many variables. What, 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce? I don't think you can blame it on a career, so to speak, as our career, or a reality show. What a reality show does is whatever's going on in your life, it polarizes it. Like, zip-a-dee-doo-dah, you cannot hide anything, and it's gonna come out."
However, Heather said that fame can have an effect on a relationship. "If one person was more famous or one person was the head of the family, and now maybe the wife is famous, you know, something like that, I think when the dynamics change, and it's very public, that's very difficult for people," she said.
Ultimately, both Lisa and Heather wondered why Yolanda and David would choose to announce their divorce on the day of the Season 6 premiere of RHOBH. "I think it's a real interesting choice, to be honest, that you would announce this on the day we premiere," Lisa said. "I was really thrown for a loop [last Tuesday], as I'm sure everyone was."
