Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster and husband David Foster have decided to call it quits after four years of marriage.

“We are grateful for the years we've spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best. I hope that we can pave the road ahead of us with all we've learned and with the love and respect we will always have for one another,” she said in a statement.

"Accept what is, Let go of what was and have Faith in what will be," she captioned an Instagram photo over the weekend.

I want to shine a light on a disease that so many know so little about."
