So long, farewell! Yolanda Foster and her husband David officially said goodbye to their enviable Malibu, Calif., home — which Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans have gawked at over five seasons — after what the former model called “a beautiful chapter.”
“Beautiful ending to a beautiful chapter of our life,” she captioned a snapshot she posted to Instagram on Sunday, Oct. 25. “Colorful memories of Love, Life and Family will live within our hearts forever… #SaluteToMalibuMagic #ByeByeHomeSweetHome #OverAndOut.”
The stunning image features Yolanda, 51, in an embrace with husband David by their infinity pool at sunset, with a palm tree adding a dramatic silhouette to the image.
In February 2014, the couple opened up to Bravo about why they had put their sprawling 11,622-square-foot home on the market.
“This is our dream home, but due to my battle with Lyme disease for the past two years, I just don’t have the strength to run this almost 5-acre property anymore and should really focus on my recovery with as little stress as possible,” she said at the time, adding that with her daughters out of the house, she and David didn’t need such a large home.
“My daughter Gigi moved to New York last July and my Bella will move this July, so it will be just the two of us with my 14-year-old son, Anwar,” she added.
Earlier this month, Yolanda revealed that both Bella and Anwar had been diagnosed with Lyme disease four years ago too.
"I honestly don't have the proper words in my vocabulary to describe to you the darkness, the pain, and the unknown hell I’ve lived these past years," she said during an emotional speech at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in NYC on Thursday, Oct. 8. “I actually did not live. I just existed in a jail of my own paralyzed brain. This disease has brought me to my knees. Many nights I wish to die. I pray that I will just wash away into heaven, where there will be no pain.”
Knowing that her children were suffering too, however, kept her afloat.
“Watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me and my journey struck the deepest chord of hopelessness inside of me, and it’s because of them that I’m motivated to stand here in front of you today," she said.
