As the disease ravaged her body and caused her to take drastic measures to treat the illness Bravo cameras were rolling and capturing every extreme treatments she tried to do, and this has been a central theme for season six of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
"Yolanda is really mad about the editing that she is getting because she feels like Bravo is making it look like she's faking her disease," a source close to the 51-year-old reality star told Radar.
"She has fought so hard to get better and to portray her as exaggerating the disease is insulting her. She feels like she is being exploited."
However, the source told Radar the situation is a double-edged sword.
"The attention Yolanda has been getting from her illness and her divorce has made her a bigger star, and she really likes that. Since she's getting divorced she is thrilled that she is a famous name in her own right."
And Foster is also pleased with how the drama is playing out with regard to her co-stars.
"Yolanda has always wanted to outshine the other women. She wants to be as famous as Kyle Richards or Lisa Vanderpump and now that they're talking about her all the time she is becoming the bigger star."
