Following the divorce announcement, several of Yolanda’s RHOBH costars sent her messages of support via social media.
“I was so sorry to hear about @YolandaHFoster and David. My love to them both,” tweeted Eileen Davidson, while Adrienne Maloof tweeted she was “Sending positivity and love.”
David is father to five daughters and has been married four times.
“Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement Tuesday. “We’ve shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.”
Early Thursday morning, Yolanda tweeted, “What defines us is how we rise after falling….. #GoodNightNoteToSelf” with a heart emoji.
