Meet New Beverly Hills Housewife Yolanda Hadid!

 

 

From RealityTea.com

Rumors have been circulating for weeks that Yolanda Hadid, ex-wife of Lisa Vanderpump‘s good friend Mohamed Hadid, is the newest co-tart on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Further cementing that Yolanda has joined the cast is the report that she was spotted filming with the ladies at Lisa’s Villa Blanca restaurant on Wednesday night.

However sources tell E! News that Bravo has yet to confirm Yolanda’s involvement and they aren’t sure if she’ll be signing on as an official housewife or be relegated to the “Friends Of The Housewives” role. Apparently while Yolanda was mic’d and filming with the group where she “seemed to fit right in,” (according to a witness) – this was a trial run and she has not signed a contract yet, only an appearance release for that particularly day of filming. A video of Yolanda at Wednesday’s event is below!

Disputing this, RadarOnline claims Yolanda has not only joined up as a full-on Housewife, but that her husband music producer David Foster is more than supportive of his wife’s aspirations to get drunk and act catty on national television. For more information on Yolanda and David – keep reading below!

 

 

“David and Yolanda got married late last year, and he encouraged her to join the show because he thought it would be fun for her to do,” a source close to the couple reveals. “He is extremely proud of his wife and wants the world to see how lucky he is to be married to her. David is no stranger to reality television; when he was married to his third wife, Linda Thompson, they were both featured on the Fox reality show The Princes Of Malibu, which dealt with his relationship with his then step-sons, Brody and Brandon Jenner.” The delicious Linda has also made some charming and hilarious appearances on RHOBH. I kinda wish she was joining the show, in fact!

Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out, she is no shrinking violet,” the source adds.

So who is Yolanda? Well, she’s a veteran on the reality television circuit! Reality Tea’s source tells us that Yolanda, who is Dutch, is currently starring in a reality show called Hollywood Vrouwen (Hollywood Women). “It’s basically the same concept as Real Housewives, but about four Dutch women who live lavishly in he LA area,” our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “There isn’t nearly as much drama though.”

Yolanda, a former model, appears on the show with some pretty well-known Dutch women. Two of her fellow cast-mates are: “Prinses Inge (once married to an Arab Prince, separated but kept the title), Concheta Leeflang (mingles withe the likes of Eva Longoria, Elton John and Oprah).”

In addition to the famous friends and the reality TV pedigree, Yolanda’s expansive spending and over-the-top tastes make her a perfect addition to this group! “Just know Yolanda is crazy rich and David basically puts no limit on her spending. Also as his wife you already know she’s very well connected,” our source tells us.

“Her wedding, which she produced (yes, it was a production) herself was attended by Oprah, Heidi Klum and Barbra Streisand (among others) with performances by Michael Buble, Andrea Bocelli and Donna Summer.” Well, gee – where was my invite, Yolanda?!

Interestingly, it seems Yolanda was once involved in a love triangle of sorts between her former hubby and her current one! “About her and Mohamed; he is actually the father of her three children,” our source shares. “She met David through Mohammed. They met at David’s $85 million dollar house, which she fully decorated.”

David and Yolanda still live there together and that is where David asked her to marry him! Strangely, the couple also actually held their rehearsal dinner at Mohamed’s house!

Wow – so, that’s all very interesting! And I can totally see why the producers chose her to join the cast – and why there’s some serious tension between Yolanda and Lisa!

Filipino singer Charice Pempengco has scored another triumph in her international career when her single “Note to God,” released only in the United States, broke into the Amazon.com and iTunes music charts.

Amazon is America’s largest online retailer, while iTunes accounts for 70 percent of worldwide sales of digital downloads and is the No. 1 music vendor globally.

“Note to God” is currently No. 2 on Amazon’s MP3 Downloads Bestsellers and Hot New Releases section, and No. 1 on the Movers and Shakers, or the biggest gainer in sales rank as of Tuesday. It is also No. 9 on the iTunes chart.

The song is partly an emotional prayer whose lyrics are about what one would say in a letter to God.

It’s the first single in her forthcoming debut album being produced by her musical mentor, David Foster.

It is actually a cover version of a composition by Diane Warren (who also wrote Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing;” Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me;” and Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart”).

The 16-year-old Charice first sang the song on America’s highest-rating TV show “Oprah” only on Monday—the day it was also released as a digital download.

On the Amazon Bestsellers chart, “Note to God” ranks behind the Black Eyed Peas’s “Boom Boom Pow” but has overtaken Lady GaGa’s “Poker Face,” Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb,” Taylor Swift’s “Love Story,” Beyoncé’s “Halo,” and Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida.”

On the iTunes chart, Charice’s single is ahead of Eminem’s “Beautiful.”

Charice was again featured in a high-profile show on May 9 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she performed with Foster in a tribute concert for Celine Dion.

On May 23, Charice made her second appearance as a guest on the Italian musical variety show “Ti lascio una canzone” (“Leavin’ You a Song”). Its producers reportedly insisted that she return after having sung in the program’s season premiere in April.

Teenage star Charice Pempengco was one of the many performers who appeared at a concert organized by David Foster on Saturday, May 9.

The 17-year-old joined Cher, Clay Aiken, Donny Osmond, Brian McKnight and Paul Anka at the David Foster & Friends concert at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas to raise money for the David Foster Foundation, an organization established by the legendary composer and music producer in 1986 to provide financial and emotional help to the families of children needing organ transplants.

During the show, Charice thanked Foster and Oprah Winfrey for their help in her career.

“I would like to mention these people who are very special in my life,“ she said. “First, he is my fan, my producer, my mentor. He taught me a lot of things and of course he is my hero — David Foster. And of course I want to thank Oprah for believing in my dreams and of course believing in me. Thank you so much. I love you both.“

Foster has a long history of charitable efforts to help children. In 1997 he was honored with the United States Children’s Choice Award for his work supporting research into children’s cancer, leukemia, and AIDS.
