Erika Jayne Girardi isn't thrilled with the news of Yolanda Foster's exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
During a couple of recent interviews, the newest addition to the cast spoke of Foster's decision to leave the reality series, as well as her ongoing battle with Lyme disease.
“It’s terrible, but she has to do what’s right for her,” Girardi told Access Hollywood, according to a report by All About The Real Housewives on Monday. “That doesn’t stop my friendship from her. I was just on the phone with her like two days ago anyway, so nothing changes except she’s not on camera.”
Days prior, Girardi spoke with Jenny McCarthy on Dirty, Sexy, Funny, telling her that while Foster is doing better as she continues her fight with Lyme disease, her battle is far from over.
“She feels good. She’s getting better,” Girardi noted.
Then, after McCarthy pointed out that Foster's “recovery happened awfully quickly,” Girardi confirmed she is not 100 percent quite yet.
“She is not 100 percent better. No, she’s got a long way to go. She just had another surgery, like, two weeks ago. I don’t want to say what it is because that’s not fair for me to say. But she’s not 100 percent. She’s still in there. She’s still fighting,” Girardi said.
Earlier this month, Foster's exit was confirmed.
"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," Foster explained to her fans and followers on Instagram earlier this month. "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 taught me. I'am excited about this CHOICE and look forward to the next chapter of my life."
