Yolanda Foster encourages model daughter to keep dieting

Yolanda Foster and Gigi Hadid at a Guess photo shoot during 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Yolanda Foster is the newest housewife on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and while she seemed quite reserved and quiet during episode 1, the same can not be said for her appearance on episode 2. During the new episode which aired last night, Yolanda was seen attending one of her daughter’s photo shoots and while she clearly knows her way around the biz, she may have went a bit too far.

Gigi Hadid, who has been modeling since she was just 3-years-old, was shooting an overseas ad campaign for Guess and proud mama Yolanda dropped in to make sure everything was going off without a hitch. While she claimed that she didn’t want to be an overbearing stage mom, she seemed to be just that.

When Gigi expressed her excitement about the food that would be available to her during her birthday party later that night, Yolanda told her, “You can have one night of being bad and then you gotta get back on your diet.”

Yolanda also added that in Paris “they like the girls a tad on the skinny side” and pointed out that her make-up was too “Chinese-looking.” It may be offensive to some, but Yolanda claimed that her criticisms were made because she knows what looks best on her daughter and what photographs best.

What do you think? Did she go too far or is she just trying to unsure her daughter continues to have success in the world of modeling?

    Yolanda, sweetie, you are a stage mom, why micromanage?

    Yolanda’s haircut really, really gets on my nerves… It is not cute, nor fashionable.

      It seems a little “Joe Dirt”

    • JJ L

      lol like in the 80s when she was a model

    • Kiki

      It is actually quite European and classic…instead of trendy hair idiot.

      • Sam

        Definitely rich woman hair, many don’t get classic style anymore.

  • JJ L

    would hate her to be my mom!

    I think the media is making it a bigger deal then it is. Like she said she knows what looks good on her daughter and she’s been in the biz long enough to voice her opinion. I don’t think the “Chinese lookng” was meant to be offensive. Especially when her own eyes are Chinese looking

    Modeling is a dangerous industry for a young woman…and mom definitely knows it.
