Still A Rumor Yolanda Foster Faking Lyme DiseaseAnother day, another Real Housewives health scandal! After months of the RHOOC ladies accusing Brooks Ayers of faking cancer, a new supertease for RHOBH season six suggests Yolanad Foster's co-stars accused her of faking Lyme disease, which she was diagnosed with in 2012. In the trailer for the upcoming season, the Bravolebrities even mention Munchausen syndrome, a mental disorder in which someone falsely believes he or she is physically ill. "They like to prey on the weak. You're sick, so let's go after you," Foster's friend Brandi Glanville told the 51-year-old. "You have some balls, tell me you said it!" the mother-of-two quips back. Yolanda's other RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards recently opened up about the rumor during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "A lot of the things she's gone through and the treatments she's done, for some of the cast members they were questioning exactly what she was doing and exactly how sick she was. It was not a good situation," she said. "Some things came up that made some of the Housewives question exactly what was really going on."

Yolanda Foster Faking Lyme Disease: True Or False?

The latest news on the reality star's disease was last year when she took to her blog to open up about the horrible turn her illness had taken. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says it feels like someone “tied my hands behind my back, just so she can watch life go by without me.” She continued, “I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter,” Foster wrote. “It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.” “Unfortunately I have lost the ability to do so in an intelligent matter at this time,” Yolanda says, explaining to fans why she didn’t write earlier. “Most of you know I have been battling Lyme disease for the past three years,” she wrote. “I wasted the first year trying to get diagnosed and spent the next two trying to find a cure. I have gone from the conventional long-term antibiotics to about every holistic protocol there is to offer. Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60% recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back.” “The most frustrating thing is that there is medical data on Lyme and spirochete infections going back all the way to 1908, but yet we still don’t have proper diagnostic testing, a vaccine, or a cure for Lyme disease while we are living in the United States of America, the most extraordinary country in the world,” Foster wrote. “Something doesn’t add up here, and I will make it my life mission to figure this out, because nobody deserves to suffer this way in 2015.”
