During one of the recent episodes of the show, chatter at Kyle Richards’ party turned to Foster’s claim that her children Bella and Anwar Hadid were also suffering from Lyme disease — a claim Vanderpump said their father, Mohamed Hadid, had denied.
But Vanderpump now regrets her role in the conversation and took to her Bravo blog on Wednesday to reveal as much.
“I would never delve into the health history of somebody’s children, but now as the subject was brought to the forefront by Yolanda, a week previously, without provocation, then I was asked questions by Kyle, I have no alternative but to speak my truth,” she wrote. “My truth being over the years of interacting with all of the children, there had never been any mention of illness.”
She went on to claim that Mohamed Hadid, with whom she is good friends, had never mentioned his children’s illness, thus leading her to make assumptions about Bella and Anwar’s health.
“Mohamed had always said they were fine, but that is their prerogative as parents, whatever medical issues or information they choose to divulge,” she continued. “I obviously interpreted that as they were not infected by this insidious disease, and as it is not contagious, I understood them to be healthy. I love and adore all three of them, for sure.”
“I regret even acknowledging the subject, but we live and we learn,” Vanderpump concluded.
