Yolanda Foster has revealed that she is not the only member of her famous family to be battling Lyme disease.

Two of her children are also battling the illness, she revealed while speaking at the Global Lyme Alliance in New York this week.


The 51-year old was diagnosed three years ago and accepted the Power of One award at the gala as she vowed to continue her fight to find a cure for the tick borne illness.

"When my two youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me," the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said.


Bella, 18, and Anwar, 16 were both on hand to support their mom, along with sister Gigi and her boyfriend Joe Jonas.

Gigi, 20, was given the task of introducing her mother to the stage and commented on Yolanda’s decision to star in the reality TV series:

"I remember when she was going into the first season of filming, she said to me, 'I don't know why this show was brought to my life, but for some reason, I think it will lead to something bigger.”


Her mom chose to dedicate her award to her children who also live with Lyme disease and promised:

“I will not allow you to live a life of pain and suffering. I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure so that you can live a healthy life that you deserve.”

On the red carpet, Gigi gave an emotional interview with Entertainment Tonight about being the only one of her siblings to not have Lyme disease:

“What's been hardest for me is just trying to find a way to be their hope and kind of be a strength for them even with the disease that I can't understand fully because I haven't been through it.”


Not too long ago, singer Avril Lavigne made a return to music after she was forced to step away from the stage following her diagnosis.

"I thought I was dying … There were definitely times I couldn’t shower for a full week because I could barely stand," she said of her illness earlier this year.


Gigi Hadid's career has skyrocketed in recent months, with catwalk appearances for Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Sonia Rykiel among others. But the model's personal life has not been quite so positive of late, as she has watched her mother struggling with deteriorating health.

Gigi's mum Yolanda Foster, known for her work on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, recently revealed that her three-year battle with Lyme Disease has been getting increasingly difficult, since a relapse of her symptoms occurred in early December.

In an emotional blog post, Yolanda opened up about the terrifying symptoms of her illness, which took a year to diagnose "I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can't process information or any stimulation for that matter," the 51-year-old wrote to fans. "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."

Lyme Disease can usually be treated quickly if caught early, but if left untreated can affect the brain and nervous system.

Although Gigi's modelling work means she can't be at home as much as she would like, the young model says she keeps in touch with her mother daily. "We try to call her and FaceTime her with what's going on and keep her feeling like she's not too far away," the 19-year-old told Us Weekly.

"I think that she kind of looks forward to it," she said. "Right now she's going through a lot, so even a little FaceTime once in a while helps."

Sounds like a tough time – our thoughts are with Yolanda and her family.



A Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills viewer created a petition to have controversial Brandi Glanville booted off the show.

A girl named Lori Chase titled the petition ‘Remove Brandi Glanville from ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ and had it sent to Bravo TV Casting Office.

With over 1,000 signatures, the organiser made it very clear why she wanted the former model off the show.

She wrote: “Brandi Glanville has made repetitive comments in the open media, social media, the actual television show and interviews which are distasteful and offensive to many groups of people.

She jokes about racial stereotypes and child molestation among other very serious issues.  Her behavior and words are hurtful, offensive and repulsive beyond the point of entertainment or good TV”.

In the past, Brandi took to Twitter to joke about a young suicide and she also made a racist comment towards a cast mate.

No wonder views want her out of the show!
