Yolanda Hadid Leaves 'RHOBH': "I Would Have Loved a More Graceful Exit"
It's official, the voice of reason in BH, Yoland Hadid, is leaving RHOBH after four seasons. The former model revealed the news via her Instagram page.
Her statement in full: "I would have loved a more graceful exit then "Season 6" but sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life............ I am leaving what's over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my@Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home........... Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I'am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life.................. #RHOBH #TimeToSayGoodbye with #Gratitude @evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv #WWHL"
Executive producer Andy Cohen responded to Yolanda on Twitter: "We love you @YolandaHFoster #RHOBH," he tweeted with a heart emoji.
Yolanda's health was the main story line on RHOBH last season, with almost the entire cast questioning the severity of her ailment, and insulting her integrity beyond repair. It was announced at the end of the season that Yolanda's marriage to songwriter and producer, David Foster, has come to an end, partly due to the strain of her disease.
Yolanda will remain busy off camera, as she is set to release her new memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease, scheduled to be published in February 2017.
We wish Yolanda the best of luck with her next adventure!
