During the Bravo series’ episode, talk at Kyle Richards‘ party turned to Foster’s previous claim that her children Bella and Anwar Hadid had been diagnosed several years ago with Lyme disease. Vanderpump told the ladies at the party that Bella and Anwar’s father, Mohamed Hadid, who is close friends with Vanderpump, had denied that they had been diagnosed with the illness. Yolanda and Mohamed are also parents to Gigi Hadid.

Vanderpump wrote in her Bravo blog on Wednesday, January 27, that Foster had allowed the topic of her kids’ health to become a point of discussion by claiming that they had the disease.

“I would never delve into the health history of somebody’s children, but now as the subject was brought to the forefront by Yolanda, a week previously, without provocation, then I was asked questions by Kyle, I have no alternative but to speak my truth,” she wrote. “My truth being over the years of interacting with all of the children, there had never been any mention of illness.”

“Mohamed had always said they were fine, but that is their prerogative as parents, whatever medical issues or information they choose to divulge,” continued the Vanderpump Rules star, 55. “I obviously interpreted that as they were not infected by this insidious disease, and as it is not contagious, I understood them to be healthy. I love and adore all three of them, for sure.”

Vanderpump concluded her post by writing, “I regret even acknowledging the subject, but we live, and we learn.”

In her own blog, Foster, who has publicly battled Lyme disease for years, wrote that discussion of her children’s health should be off-limits among the other women, as she and Mohamed are the only ones who know the details of their kids’ health scare.

“It is up to no one but [Mohamed and me] to make claims toward their health status,” the former model wrote. “Shame on those who think it’s OK to spread rumors and provoke doubt about something so heart wrenching.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Bravo on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.
