Taylor Armstrong Mocks Yolanda Foster's Lyme Disease, Ignites Feud With Lisa Rinna

by at .

Last week, we learned that Taylor Armstrong will return to the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a replacement for fired cast member Brandi Glanville.

Lisa Rinna wasn't on the show during Taylor's first stint, so the two are just getting to know each other for the first time - and according to reports from the set, they really don't like each other.

According to Radar Online, the problem began when Taylor openly mocked Yolanda Foster's illness and suggested the 51-year-old former model is faking it.

As fans of the show know, Yolanda was diagnosed with Lyme disease back in 2012.

In the years since, Foster's Instagram diary has served as an inspiration for thousands of Lyme disease patients - and offered bravely candid updates on the severity of her worsening condition. 

Needless to say, the other ladies didn't take kindly to Taylor's suggestion that Yolanda is exaggerating for attention, and Lisa was the first to make her feelings known.

“[Taylor] was openly questioning how sick Yolanda was,” says one insider. “Taylor said she was having major doubts about how serious the Lyme disease was for Yolanda, who wasn’t at [Lisa Vanderpump's anniversary] party.”

“Lisa Rinna was openly seething with anger because Taylor doesn’t even know Yolanda, and shouldn’t have even gone there! It quickly became obvious to Lisa that Taylor is being brought back this season to stir the pot.”

Well, if it that was the goal, it seems producers are getting their wish.

Taylor has already extended an olive branch to Lisa, tweeting, “@lisarinna I just saw Lip Sync Battle @SpikeLSB #LipSyncBattle hmmmm…why haven’t they invited us to face (I mean lip) sync it off? #RHoBH,” 

Rinna ignored the reference to their shared fondness for collagen, but tweeted shortly thereafter, “My mom always said if you can’t say something nice about someone don’t say anything at all. #fail.”

Hopefully, Lisa won't continue taking the high road when the cameras are rolling.
