It was the news that kind of threw everyone for a loop, as Yolanda Foster and David Foster confirmed on Tuesday, Dec. 1 that they are divorcing. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple said in a statement "sadly we have decided to go our separate ways" after four years of marriage. And while RHOBH pal Kyle Richards shared on Watch What Happens Live that "they've been struggling," Heather Dubrow is surprised by the news.
"It’s sad. When I hear people are splitting up [it] makes you feel like, is anyone gonna make it? It makes you look at your relationship: Are we stable and good? I am heartbroken," the Real Housewives of Orange County actress told The Daily Dish at The Abbey in Los Angeles, where she was hosting an event for The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. "We met them before the show. Yolanda is an amazing mother [and they are a] nice couple. Marriage is hard in general — especially in the spotlight. They both have huge careers."
Heather's husband, Terry, however had a different take on the situation, noting that David had been married three times prior to his relationship with Yolanda, who was married once before to Mohamed Hadid. “This may be controversial — maybe I shouldn’t say it. I think people who have a history of being married and divorced, get married and divorced," he said. “If you’ve been married and divorced, two, three times, is it surprising? We are zebras; we have stripes. I think people are people [who] have patterns. If you get married and divorced, that’s what you do.” -Reporting by Paul Zahn
