On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 Episode 4, questions about Yolanda Foster's health sparked drama in the 90210.
The accusation that Yolanda Foster is faking Lyme Disease wasn't overtly made, but Lisa Rinna sure was interested in the topic.
Bizarrely, Rinna began an intense analysis of Yolanda's Instagram, detailing what she felt was a very confusing use of social media.
The long and short of it: Why is she not acting sick!?
Foster's vacation photos also offered a glimpse into her divorce from David Foster, which at this point had yet to be public knowledge.
"The minute David and I got married, I got sick," Yolanda reflected. "David gets impatient and he's allowed to get impatient."
"It's a tough deal for him as well."
Too much that he ultimately felt she was exaggerating it and that it led to their split? It's unclear, but Rinna had a different theory:
In other words, "those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves."
Rinna read this off her phone - totally unscripted, of course - not to suggest that Yolanda had this. Oh no. But because others might.
Yes, Rinna then pivoted back to the point where she admitted she betrayed Yolanda for even bringing up gossip she did not believe.

To make a long story short, the soap opera star was likely urged by producers to talk about it in detail, while hedging on her own "opinion."
Her co-stars summed it up best.
"Now may be a good time to keep those big lips closed," Kylie Richards said after Rinna went on just a little (or a lot) too long.
"To get involved in gossip about Yolanda's illness, there's no upside," Lisa Vanderpump agreed, adding, "This is going to explode."
