David Foster’s daughters have a lot to say about his ex Yolanda Hadid’s illness, and none of it is nice. Hadid has been publicly struggling with Lyme Disease, a fight that has been documented during her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And right in the middle of Hadid’s health problems came the announcement that she and Foster were splitting up.
“We are grateful for the years we’ve spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best,” they said in a joint statement released in December 2015.
There’s been a lot of speculation about just how bad Hadid’s health has been, and some even claim that she’s been faking her illness for attention on the show. Now, Foster’s two daughters, Sara and Erin Foster, are weighing in.
“Look, this is how I feel. We don’t comment to our friends on Yolanda’s health. That’s not for us to comment on. Only she knows her journey, but what I will say is if you’re capable of continuing to be on a reality show, you’re not dying,” Sara said during the radio interview with Jenny McCarthy on her show, Dirty, Sexy, Funny. “Let’s be honest.”
Erin added, “Again, we are not doctors. We have no idea what goes on, and we don’t wish anyone ill will of any kind. However, I think that from everyone’s experience, if anyone’s ever known someone who is very sick, who has cancer, who is dying, who’s in the last year of their life, the only thing that person gives a s–t about is getting through the day and being treated normally. No one wants everyone to know how sick they are and everyone to see how much they’re struggling, and when that seems to be the focus, making everyone see how sick you are, that’s just confusing to someone who’s trying to be supportive.”
