Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster Make Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion
Kim Richards didn’t let a little thing like getting fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stand in the way of having her own little reunion with former cast mates Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster. The trio got together to help Kim celebrate her birthday.
Despite some rough times lately, it looks as if things may be looking up for Kim. After months of public struggles with substance abuse and being cut off by her family, the reality star had a very public celebration with her family, including sister Kim Richards who had previously stopped speaking to her. Now the celebrating continues as Kim got together with BFF Brandi and Yolanda, who may be on her own road to recovery.
The friendship between Kim and Brandi created conflict on the RHOBH set. Brandi believed that Kyle was jealous while Kyle believed Brandi was a bad influence on her sister. Many of the Housewives believed Brandi had a drinking problem, something she adamantly denied. They did not think she was the best person to help Kim through her struggle to stay sober.
For her part, Brandi believed that she was the only person sticking by Kim in her times of trouble and she accused Kyle of being a terrible sister who only cared about Kim when the cameras were rolling. She supported Kim after her embarrassing arrest at the Polo Lounge and later visited her at her rehab facility.
Yolanda had her own issues. She was struggling with Lyme disease and had hoped to raise awareness for silent illnesses through the show. Her health deteriorated with her leaving the reunion special early. She shared how devastating the illness was confiding that it was affecting her ability to speak, write, and even remember things.
More recently she had her breast implants removed after discovering that they were leaking, possibly adding to her health woes. Since having them removed her health appears to be improving.
Yolanda was the one housewife who never seemed to be in the middle of the drama though she always had a soft spot for Brandi. She was the only one who ever seemed able to give it to Brandi straight. She also appeared to genuinely care for Kim. While the other Housewives were all about the cameras, Kim, Brandi, and Yolanda, seem to be the only ones with a friendship that continues once the cameras stop.
