Yolanda Foster: Lyme Disease changed everything

Yolanda Foster feels her Lyme Disease diagnosis changed the "dynamic" of her relationship with David Foster.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star announced she had split from the 66-year-old musician last week after three years of marriage and now claims her chronic illness put stresses on their relationship beyond repair.

Speaking to Watch What Happens Live, she shared: "We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever. Unfortunately it was not strong enough to withstand the circumstances that came our way.

"Chronic, long-term illness is extremely challenging. Not only for the person sick but also for the caregiver. It for sure changed the dynamic of the relationship.

"The truth is that we both worked through the difficult time through the best of our ability, so rather than judging what went wrong, I pick to honour the great times that we shared the last nine years. There was a wealth of good times."

Meanwhile, the 51-year-old television personality previously admitted she was "heartbroken" following the pair's break up.

She said: "I keep going, one foot in front of the other. Obviously, this is a difficult time and I'm heartbroken.

"I hope to be moving forward to a brighter future and I'm just trying to get through it one day at a time."
