Yolanda Foster reveals she joined RHOBH to benefit everyone but herself

Yolanda Foster didn't have herself in mind when she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In fact, a source revealed that the now-reality star had just about everyone's future except her own in mind when she agreed to appear on the show, according to E! News.

"At first, Yolanda's children were a big reason she decided to do the show," the source said. "She wanted to boost their careers and she definitely succeeded. Bella and Gigi have become household names."

According to the site, Bella and Gigi Hadid were just high school students and modeling hopefuls before Foster joined the show three years ago. As a former supermodel herself, it appears Foster realized the good she could do for her daughters' careers by joining RHOBH.

Clearly, it paid off. Gigi and Bella, 19 and 20, respectively, are definitely household names after locking down ad campaigns for Maybelline and Guess, and walking for brands like Victoria's Secret and Chanel. They've both appeared on countless covers for fashion magazines in the U.S. and abroad. Even their lesser-known younger brother, Foster's son Anwar Hadid, has appeared in Nylon and seems to be about to launch his own successful modeling career.

And now that her goal of building careers for her kids has been achieved, Foster has a new purpose in mind: to spread awareness of Lyme disease, the ailment she's been suffering from for years.

"Now, one of the reasons she remains on the show is to help shine a light on her disease," the source told E! News.
