The first of those? Her name.

The The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Foster appeared on Watch What Happens Live to dish to host Andy Cohen all about the recent drama in her life, including her illness and how she’s enjoying the single life so far.

I don’t know. I haven’t tried it yet,” Foster said in answer to a question about being single. “I’m still at home trying to get well.”

But the one big change she has made already is reverting back to the last name Hadid, and dropping Foster altogether.

“I talked about it with the kids,” she said. “I never dropped the name Hadid, because I have three children with that last name, and I asked the kids, ‘Should I go back to van den Herik?’ and they said, ‘No! You’re our mommy and we have the same last name.’”

Even while Foster is recovering from her illness, she’s maintaining her feud with fellow housewife Lisa Rinna. Rinna, who has accused Foster of having Munchhausen’s, refused to reveal her source for that information. But Cohen revealed to Foster on WWHL that the rumor originated with Rinna’s hairdresser.

“Are you going to listen to what the hairdresser says if you’re my friend?” Foster said in response. “You should go to the hairdresser and go, ‘Are you crazy?'”

Still, Foster has remained friends with some of the other housewives, namely Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville.

“They’re great,” she said. “Of the whole group, these are the two who deal with the most trouble in their life and they have the most compassion about my journey.”
