What Yolanda Hadid Has Been Doing Since Leaving RHOBH

When Yolanda Hadid walked away from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she left a hole in the hearts of every single one of her fans. First joining the popular reality show in 2012, the Dutch native let us into her life for four years, taking viewers on her journey as a mother, wife, friend, and sufferer of Lyme disease. By the end of 2015, Hadid announced her divorce from husband David Foster, and the following year she made the decision to quit the cast to focus on her health and wellbeing. 

Since leaving the series, Hadid's life has changed in more ways than one. Earlier this year, Hadid admitted she's done with Botox and fillers, sharing on her Instagram that it took her years to undo some of her bad choices. "Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, exstensions [sic] and all the b****** I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me," she wrote. She's also remained open about her struggle with Lyme disease, releasing her memoir Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme in 2017 and continuing her work as a Lyme disease activist.

Yolanda Hadid has moved to the East Coast

She's left California and moved to the East Coast to go back to her roots and live on a farm. Talking to The Daily Dish, Hadid reveals she was never a huge fan of Beverly Hills or its lifestyle. "It's funny because I never really liked it; even when the father of my children and I got divorced when my kids were very little, I packed up and moved to Santa Barbara because I didn't really like living in Beverly Hills," she said. "Somehow [I] came back 12, 14 years later and did it just for a couple of years. But you know, I'm a country girl, and I'm kind of back exactly where I started in Holland. I live back on a farm with goats and horses and cows and chickens and a vegetable garden and I'm kind of back to my old life." 

When she's not playing 'momager' to her model children, Bella, Gigi, and Anwar, Yolanda has kept her TV career alive as the host of Lifetime's Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, which sees the former housewife coach aspiring models. While the series was only picked up for one season, we can't wait to see what this Hadid does next.
