“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes has been very open about her recent health scare, because she was tweeting pictures of herself in the hospital. She later revealed that she had blood clots in her lungs. If that wasn’t enough, she was completely shocked that she had been diagnosed with such an illness. According to a new Bravo report published on Feb. 6, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is now speaking out about her health issues.

She is all about her health these days. "I'm coming back,” she revealed. "Whenever you have an episode of being sick, especially when you think you could lose your life, you think, 'How do I live a healthier life?'" NeNe says. "So that's what I've done. I eat better, I'm taking my vitamins and making sure I'm getting checkups with my doctors."

Of course, this kind of diagnosis is scary, especially since she has two children and has a grandchild already. She was immediately planning on changing her lifestyle around to better suit her career and health.

“I had my moment where I broke down into tears. When you’re in the hospital, your thoughts are: 'Am I going to live?' and 'Are my children going to have their mother?'" Now that she is focusing on her health, she has new rules for career. "Now my team knows I don't want to meet after 6 PM. I have to give my body a rest." She is now listening more to her body.
