Yolanda Foster Defends Her Illness After Taylor Armstrong's Comments
"Bad days do exist in Beverly Hills even though no one seems to dare to share," #RHOBH mom says.
Taylor Armstrong reemerged on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with a bang, proclaiming her doubts about Yolanda Foster's ongoing battle with Lyme Disease. "I'm so confused. It seems strange to me that she's like, 'happy selfie, sick selfie,'" Taylor told the ladies at Lisa Vanderpump's birthday lunch for Ken, further noting that she thinks "it's a little much" that Yolanda posts photos of herself getting treatment on Instagram. But, Taylor didn't end there, she added that she is "smelling misdiagnosis" about Yolanda's illness. Her comments made Lisa Rinna feel uneasy — and left an equally bad taste in Yolanda's mouth.
"What I saw on the show tonight was just that, IGNORANCE. Maybe It should anger me but instead it makes me want to fight harder and speak louder for those whose voices can't be heard," Yolanda wrote in her latest cast blog. "Those of you who have experienced chronic illness- you know what I'm talking about. What defines suffering? You will never hear someone who's walked in my shoes speak the way Taylor spoke on tonight's episode. I truly hope she never has to experience the journey she questions me for sharing."
It should be noted that Yolanda was not at the party where Taylor shared her opinions, and the former model revealed that her disease has made it hard for her "to participate in life." "Neuro Borreliosis has severely compromised my brain function and even though at times I feel down because of my inability to participate in life - Depression is not my battle!" she said. "Happy selfie, sick selfie...... That's exactly right, everyday is different and I will not use my social media to convey anything but my truth. Bad days do exist in Beverly Hills even though no one seems to dare to share."
Earlier this season, Yolanda opened up about how hard the disease has continues to affect her life.
