NeNe Leakes was hospitalized last week and treated for blood clots in her lung.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star wrote on her blog on Tuesday, “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.”

Leakes added, “Contrary to published reports I did not have a heart attack.”

On Monday, the star posted a Twitter photo of herself on a hospital bed with IVs hooked up to her arms (see below), telling followers, “My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive.”
