Yolanda Foster's marriage ends at possibly the worst time for her
More bad news for Yolanda Foster.
In the midst of failing health and rumors that she's been faking her Lyme disease diagnosis, the 51-year-old The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has just announced that she and her husband, David Foster, will end their four-year marriage.
"Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways," the couple said in a joint statement. "We've shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues."
The announcement came as Yolanda is due to return to film Season 6 of the hit reality series, and rumors that she's faking her serious illness, like Brooks Ayers, have been plaguing her, sure to become central to the plot of upcoming episodes. Now, add a divorce to the mix, and it looks like the upcoming season could be the most contentious yet for Yolanda and her family.
"We are grateful for the years we've spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best," the couple's statement continued. "I hope that we can pave the road ahead of us with all we've learned and with the love and respect we will always have for one another."
At their wedding in 2011, David told Yolanda, "Tonight, I'm the luckiest man on the planet."
Their split comes after one major clue that their marriage was coming to an end: They recently put their Malibu mansion up for sale. At the time, however, neither star hinted that the sale was happening because their marriage was ending.
"Beautiful ending to a beautiful chapter of our life," Yolanda captioned a photo on Instagram of herself and her husband at the house.
