These b-tches are awful.
Taping for this season’s reunion of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills turned out to be a disaster emotionally, if the reports are anything to go by.
But hey, RATINGS.
Yolanda Foster has had to defend her battle against Lyme disease while Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump continue to fling accusations that she’s exaggerating her illness.
A source from the set told Radar Online that Foster "initially didn’t want to participate in the reunion taped last Thursday.
"But Bravo reminded her that it’s part of the contract."
In the real world, people don’t often search for clues that someone is faking an illness because that’s just wrong.
In Bravo’s world, everything is fair game.
"She knew the women were going to be coming at her, but she had no clue how vicious it was going to be," the source continued.
"Yolanda was getting very defensive, and started crying, as if that might stop the barrage of questions.
"It didn’t, and it ended with Yolanda storming off the set."
This is a complete 180 from the way Foster was treated at last year’s reunion, when she stayed for only a short amount of time because she wasn’t feeling well.
At last Thursday’s taping, Foster "said she felt ganged up on, and it took more than twenty minutes of producers cajoling Yolanda to get her to agree to come back to the set and finish filming."
Rinna, Vanderpump and Richards had no sympathy.
They "didn’t feel sorry that Yolanda felt attacked," the source pointed out.
"Lisa Rinna said she felt Yolanda used her as a scapegoat all season to deflect from what was going on in her failing marriage to David Foster."
Andy Cohen tried to strip Foster of any dignity she had remaining by pushing her "to confess what wrong with the marriage to David.
"Yolanda blamed her illness as a contributing factor leading to the divorce. But she refused to reveal any details beyond the barest of details about the divorce to David."
Yeah because she has respect for her ex-husband.
"It was frustrating for everyone else, because she just wasn’t willing to discuss the personal details of her life," the source said.
Erica Girardi was the only one sticking up for Foster while the others (Kathryn Edwards and Eileen Davis were not mentioned in the report) went HAM on their co-star.
Girardi got "very defensive about Yolanda and felt it was her duty to stand up for her friend," the source said.
It sounds like things went well.
