It's been just over a week since "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" stars Yolanda and David Foster announced their divorce. The news caught fans and close friends of the couple off guard, but recent comments from the former supermodel suggest it was a long time coming. With Season 6 of "RHOBH" currently airing on Bravo many are wondering if the show will give a glimpse into the couple's marital troubles.
To date much of the current season of "RHOBH" has centered on Yolanda's Lyme disease battle. David, 69, has made only brief cameos in the show, as he often does. Although Season 6 is just two episodes in, there appears to be no obvious sign of marital troubles between Yolanda, 51, and her now-estranged beau. Neither the reality star nor her Grammy Award-winning husband have revealed if their divorce will be featured in future episodes, but based on her recent comments, it seems unlikely. On Dec. 3, Yolanda told Extra she wanted to "mourn" her marriage in private. It has also been reported that David blames his divorce on "RHOBH." According to Daily Mail, sources have said Yolanda's quest for fame took a toll on him personally and professionally.
Although it is unknown if "Real Housewives" fans will see Yolanda and David split in front of Bravo's cameras, the series has seen several divorces and breakups in years past. Below are some of the more memorable televised breakups and divorces of Bravo's "Real Housewives" stars:
In 2009, viewers tuned in as "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson attempted to save her marriage to Donn Gunvalson. The couple renewed their vows in front of the cameras only to split in 2010.
The following year former "RHOBH" star Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce from her allegedly abusive husband Russell Armstrong. She accused him of domestic violence several times throughout Season 5 of the show. Russell soon after committed suicide, which Taylor also dealt with in front of Bravo's cameras.
In 2014, "Real Housewives of New York City" fans were shocked to learn that Ramona Singer and her husband Mario Singer were going through a rough patch in their marriage. The reality star largely brushed off the claims until she could no longer hide from the truth. In Season 7 Ramona revealed to viewers that she and Mario split after she learned he had been unfaithful.
Ramona's "RHONY" co-star and close friend Sonja Morgan also went through a difficult divorce in front of the cameras. While her estranged husband made no appearances on the show, Sonja often spoke about her financial struggles, which stemmed from the divorce. In Season 7, she was finally freed from her ex's clutches and began to regain financial stability.
LuAnne de Lesseps, another "RHONY" star, split from longtime boyfriend Jacques Azoulay in 2013 after cheating on him during a cast trip to St. Barts.
When Porsha Williams joined the cast of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" she was the doting wife of NFL player Kordell Stewart. She refused to partake in anything her husband hadn't approved, like trips to a strip club, and was always on top of her "wifely duties." The pair seemed to have the perfect marriage, despite Kordell's controlling tendencies, so viewers were shocked to learn that they had split in 2013. Porsha picked up the pieces after the split in front of Bravo's cameras.
Dina Manzo, who made a brief return to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" in Season 6, was very vocal about being a recent divorcee during the show. She spent much of the season trying to get back in the swing of things without her husband by her side.
Camille Grammer spoke very openly about her divorce from ex-husband Kelsey Grammer during her time on "RHOBH." The couple called it quits after Camille learned that her husband had been unfaithful. She allowed Bravo's cameras to tag along as her divorce played out, even filming as she was forced to hand over expensive personal items like purses purchased during the marriage and her wedding ring.
"RHOC" star Tamra Judge opened up about her ugly divorce from Simon Barney during the Season 10 finale of the show. She revealed to viewers that the split created a divide in her family with her daughter Sidney choosing to live with her father and cut ties with her.
