A lot of Bravoholics and Bravo bloggers have been wanting this day to come for a long time, because they were tired of Yolanda’s Lyme disease journey, and a lot of people thought that she was simply faking her illness. Whether that’s the case or not, a lot of people simply didn’t want to see her return for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7, and it looks like their prayers have been answered.
In case you haven’t seen it, Yolanda took to Instagram to announce her departure from Bravo. Now, a lot of people think that she was fired, but if you read the entirety of her post, you’ll see that she says it was her choice:
Now, that’s all fine and dandy, but why did Yolanda quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
It’s been revealed that Bravo approached her, and told her that she could still appear on the show, but she would be featured as a “friend of,” on the show, rather than being a main cast member. That way, she’d be able to focus more on her health, rather than being so involved with the production of the new season. This didn’t sit well with Yolanda, so she decided to peace out.
There’s no hard feelings on Bravo’s behalf in the situation, and they’re open for Yolanda being featured on the show in the future, but only as a “friend of.” type role.
