Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes had to postpone her scheduled appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael last month due to blood clots in her lung. Luckily, she’s feeling a lot better these days and was able to appear on the show this week.
NeNe was a guest on the daytime talk show on December 4 and explained about her health issues. "I got really sick," NeNe says. "Just one night, I started feeling a pain under my breast and in my back, and then it moved to my shoulder.”
"Gregg kept saying, 'You got gas,'” NeNe says. "And I was like, 'I do not have gas. Not in my shoulder and under my breast.'"
NeNe was hoping to avoid going to the hospital, in order to keep the situation out of the press, but she finally had no choice. "It was so excruciating," she says of the pain. "I went to the emergency room, and I have pulmonary embolisms, which are blood clots on your lungs. It was from flying; I fly a lot."
NeNe is still recovering, as she is on medication to thin her blood. However, she seems to be in great spirits as she enjoys the holidays, and she just got done hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for a whopping 30 people. "I'm a holiday girl, to be honest,” NeNe says. “I really love the holidays!"
It’s great to hear that NeNe is feeling so much better. We continue to wish her the best as she recovers!
