Our favorite Real Housewife was hospitalized recently, due to a serious health scare.
Nene Leakes responded on her personal blog, after reports surfaced that she had a heart attack, which turned out to be false. However, she did share that she was hospitalized for blood clots, which are very serious! Read what Nene shared with fans below.
"First and foremost, I so dearly love and appreciate each and every one of you for your concern and your prayers.
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.
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.
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.
I’m blessed to be home with my wonderful Husband and family! Look who crawled in the hospital bed with me…."

Blood clots can be very serious and in most cases fatal. If you remember Tamar Braxton's husband, Vincent Herbert suffered from a similar condition, and his blood clots were also due to frequent travel. Vince unfortunately spent months in the hospital, so it's a good thing that Nene found out about it early on. We wish Nene the best and we'll keep the Diva in our prayers.
