NeNe Leakes Diagnosed With Blood Clots In Her Lungs


Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is recovering from a recent health scare, as she was diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs. After NeNe tweeted a photo of herself in a hospital gown and IV’s, fans showered her with well wishes. “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,” NeNe shared. “After some routine tests, I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung… Contrary to published reports, I did not have a heart attack.”

“I’m told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job,” she explained. “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.”
