The word on Yolanda Foster and David Foster’s surprise divorce announcement was that her Lyme’s disease, which she was diagnosed with soon after they married, put a lot of strain on their marriage. Now someone is saying that the Lyme’s disease wasn’t the problem: it was Yolanda’s pursuit of fame that caused problems. Regardless of the reason, Yolanda reportedly thinks this divorce may actually be the best medicine for her illness.
A source (who I’m guessing is close to David) said:
Yolanda’s obsession with fame for her and her children is the cause of the split. David didn’t want to be part of the show, but he knew how important it was to her. He wanted to make her happy.”
But she left ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ so if that was the issue, then wouldn’t her departure take care of that? A source close to Yolanda objected to the first source’s claim.
David enjoyed being on the show. He gained a whole new set of fans through Housewives.”
Oh boy. It sounds like this split might be a bit nastier than it seemed. A source said:
What’s so hurtful now is that there are these stories perpetuating that he’s a horrible guy, who’s left her out to dry. David would have probably worked on the marriage. He’s 66 and he doesn’t want to be alone and on his fourth divorce.”
Then why didn’t he? This is odd. It sounds like David doesn’t like the perception that he basically abandoned his ill wife. That is how it looks, although the truth of the matter is that no one knows what’s going on in a relationship besides the two people in it. I’m sure more than that happened between them.
Regardless of the reasons for the split, Yolanda is said to anticipate getting better now that she no longer has to deal with marital stress. A source claimed that she leaned heavily on David, but when he started traveling a lot for work, she “couldn’t handle the change and got sick as a result.”
Apparently now that she doesn’t expect him to be there, she’ll get better. Stress is said to aggravate Lyme’s disease. I hope Yolanda’s condition does improve: she’s really been struggling over the last few years.
