Yolanda Foster Reveals She Can No Longer Read or Write

Yolanda Foster is keeping the last name of her first husband, Mohamed Hadid.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star split from her David Foster this past year and wants to now be a Hadid like her three children, Gigi, Bella and Anwar. "I talked about it with my kids," she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday. "I never dropped the name Hadid because I have three children by that last name. I asked the kids, 'Should Ii go back to van den Herik?' and they said, 'No. You're our mommy and we have the same last name.'"

EXCLUSIVE: Gigi Hadid Breaks Down Over How Lyme Disease Has Personally Affected Her Family

While Yolanda is ready to give up her second husband's last name, she says her battle with Lyme disease has kept her from getting back out into the dating scene. "I haven't tried it yet," the 52-year-old model admitted. "I'm still at home trying to get well."

Her daughters, however, are in very public relationships, with Gigi, 20, dating Zayn Malik, and Bella, 19, seeing The Weeknd. "It's their choice," she said. "As long as they treat my daughters with great respect and love them, it's all good for me."

When ET spoke with Yolanda back in December, she had yet to be introduced to Gigi's beau. "I haven't met him yet," she shared. "Gigi's 20 years old, loving life, shopping like she should. I haven't met him yet, so I can't say anything about him."
