‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’: NeNe Leakes hospitalized with unknown illness, ‘blessed’ to be alive

What's next -Over the course of this season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” we have seen NeNe Leakes take on a pair of situations that range form the interesting (adjusting to life following the cancellation of “The New Normal”) to the mundane (trying to get her friendship with Kenya Moore back on good standing after a little bit of a spat).

But compared to both of these problems, what NeNe has gone through recently when it comes to her health easily takes the cake as the most serious situation that she has been a part of in a while. While the reality star is still not disclosing just what she is suffering from, she did claim on Twitter that she is “blessed to be alive.” She insinuated that exhaustion may be one of the reasons why she ended up with an illness, but that is not confirmed by any means.

In the end, it feels like NeNe is going to emerge from this just fine, which is great news for both her and obviously the Bravo franchise. She is the biggest star of the Atlanta-set show and one of the most-popular in the entire franchise, and also receives a pretty hefty salary for her work. She also is coming off of the spin-off show “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding,” which chronicled her ceremony to Gregg Leakes. This marks the second time this year that Bravo has aired a special series regarding a star of one of their shows, as they aired “Tamra’s OC Wedding” earlier this year for Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will continue airing on the network Sunday nights, and NeNe should remain a big part of it. The next time that she will actually need to film something related to the series will be next year, when the show chooses to film the annual reunion show.
