Yolanda Hadid Explained Why She Told Daughter Gigi Hadid To Eat Two Almonds On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
Almost 10 years later, Almondgate rages on. Yolanda Hadid was considered controversial on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her stoic persona and quest to improve her health after a Lyme Disease diagnosis divided both cast members and fans. But nothing follows Yolanda around like a comment she made to her now-supermodel daughter, Gigi Hadid.
In one infamous scene when Gigi called her mom from a modeling shoot, Yolanda gave some terrible advice. Gigi told Yolanda, “I’m feeling really weak, I had like, half an almond.” Yolanda, who had just finished surgery to get her breast implants removed, advised Gigi to “have a couple of almonds and chew them really well.”
Now Yolanda wants to explain herself. The former housewife told People, “This is taken so far out [of context]. This was a small little clip from [Real] Housewives. Gigi was calling because she wasn’t feeling good and I apparently said, half asleep, ‘Have two almonds.’ I don’t even remember why two or what. There was no rhyme or reason to it. It’s such a silly narrative that is out there, that has nothing to do with the reality of our lives.”
