Yolanda Hadid is less than two months away from her memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease, hitting shelves, and fans are getting a taste of just what the former model has to say in a new report about the September 12 release. According to The Daily Mail, Yolanda speaks candidly about everything from her marriages or her fight against Lyme disease.
"Too many nights I found myself lying naked on the bathroom floor, the only relief being the cold tiles on my bare skin, wondering how much more pain I could take and how many more days, months, and years I could suffer," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum reportedly shares, according to The Daily Mail. "There were plenty of times when I thought that I wouldn't make it through the night alive, and others where I wished and prayed that I would die."
Yolanda openly discusses the ups and downs she faced in trying to find a diagnosis for her illness (she was eventually diagnosed with chronic neurological lyme disease in Belgium in 2012) and how she refuses to stop looking for more information about the disease. "I'm going to find a cure for this disease and nothing and nobody is going to stop me. I will not allow anyone to shut me up or shame me into silence, and I'm not going to rot away behind closed doors," she says.
In addition to speaking candidly about her disease, as well as her life as a mom, Yolanda also reportedly discusses her marriages to Mohamed Hadid and David Foster. She shares she met Mohamed in Aspen in 1993, and together they had three kids before splitting in 2000. "He's a good human being and provider for his children," she writes. "But unfortunately for me, he's not a faithful husband."
She writes that it was "a big blow to my ego. I thought I was a pretty good catch: financially independent...and loving my home life and roles as wife and mother."
Next, she met David at a dinner party hosted by Mohamed. The couple married in 2011 before separating in 2015. She writes that he was not always by her side through her health struggles and adds that when she met him he was a "diamond in the rough" and that "he needed polishing." She continued, "I put him on a healthy diet, helped him lose twenty-five pounds, redid his wardrobe, and never missed one of his doctors' appointments."
