Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid has made it public knowledge that she suffers from Lyme disease, and she also revealed last year that two of her children – Bella and Anwar – have the disease.

And while Yolanda’s health has improved from treatments to help manage it, poor Bella hasn’t had the easiest ride.

Appearing on Good Day New York on Tuesday morning to talk about the upcoming Global Lyme Alliance Dinner, Yolanda was asked how her kids are managing the disease.

“Bella, you know, Bella is struggling. It’s hard to imagine that this beautiful bright light on the cover of magazines that she could struggle the way that she does,” she revealed.

“You know she’s always tired. She could sleep for 10 hours and wake up (and say) ‘I’m still tired.’ In the younger generation it comes up like anxiety, severe exhaustion, joint pain, flu like symptoms and they just keep struggling over it.” Poor B!

17-year-old Anwar is a little luckier than his model sister though…

“My son, who has been home with me, is doing great. I think he’s about 90 percent and he’s very determined to get 100 percent and he does the work and does what needs to be done,” Yolanda continued.

Let’s hope Bella can make a full recovery too!
