NeNe Leakes: “I Kind of Miss the Old Girls” on Real Housewives of Atlanta (VIDEO)
Earlier this year NeNe Leakes had quite the health scare when she headed to the hospital after experiencing severe pain in her arm and back and doctors discovered that she had several blood clots in her lungs. At first, NeNe and her doctors assumed the clots had formed because of her frequent air travel, but when The Real Housewives of Atlanta star stopped by Good Morning America on December 18 she revealed that the clots might be unrelated.
According to NeNe, the docs now think the clots may be genetic. “They’re doing further testing on me to see if it’s genetic or not. Right now I’m currently on blood thinners,” she revealed.
And although NeNe has been recovering for several weeks, she admitted that she’s not quite feeling like her old self just yet, noting, “I have good days and bad days.” The recovery has been long, and NeNe said that even though she was only in the hospital for a few days, it’s been very difficult for her family — including sons Bryson and Brentt — to process. “It was tough, because I had never been in the hospital before, ever. It was just really hard.”.
Health issues aside, NeNe made a surprising admission when the topic of conversation turned to this season of RHoA. “I never thought in a million years I would say this, but I kind of miss the old girls a little bit,” she began. “We started together and it’s sort of like a journey we had together, and so I kind of miss them in that way. I’m working with a bunch of new girls now and it’s OK...I don’t love everyone.”
We have a sneaking suspicion that Kenya Moore is on the list of people that NeNe doesn’t love, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens as we get further into Season 6!
