NeNe Leakes Hospitalized for Blood Clots in Her Lungs

NeNe Leakes has explained the mystery illness that sent her to the hospital: blood clots in her lungs.

Yesterday, the Real Housewife of Atlanta uploaded a picture of herself in a hospital bed to her personal blog with the caption, “My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive.”

NeNe Leakes posted this picture to her blog. It shows her arms covered in IVs.

Fans immediately began to offer their support, though it was unclear what was making her so ill. Now, in another blog post, Leakes says that she was able to catch the symptoms early and is now at home.

Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out.

After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung. I’m told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job.

Get better soon, NeNe! We’re sending a bouquet of emoji flowers your way!

UPDATE: NeNe’s Real Housewives co-star Kim Zolciak has offered her well wishes to NeNe, telling Celebuzz: “My thoughts and prayers are with Nene at this time and I know she will be back to her feisty self in no time.”
