Real Housewives of Atlanta Star NeNe Leakes Hospitalized: “I’m Thankful To Be Alive!”

Things got real for Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes when a recent visit to her physician revealed a life threatening condition.

“Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath,” the 45-year-old reality diva explained on her website. “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.”

The glam-ma posted images of her arms stuck with IV’s and tweeted out the hashtag #blessedtobealive to her 1.3 millions of followers on Twitter. And while she says the experience has been painful, NeNe is on the road to recovery.

“I’m thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening,” she explained. “Contrary to published reports, I did not have a heart attack. I am fortunate to have had a wonderful experience with the doctors and nurses who took care of me.”

Back at her Atlanta home and focused on the future, the brazen blonde is holding on to what matters most: her friends, fans, and family.

“I so dearly love and appreciate each and every one of you for your concern and your prayers,” she wrote on her site, posting another photo with her adorable 17-month-old granddaughter Bri’asia. “I’m blessed to be home with my wonderful husband and family! Look who crawled in the hospital bed with me.”
