NeNe Leakes tweeted that she’s “blessed to be alive” after an undisclosed illness resulted in her hospitalization on Monday.

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” standout included a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed, clad in a pale blue standard-issue gown with a white blanket pulled up to her stomach and both arms covered with intravenous needles.

“My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive,” she tweeted to her more than 1.3 million followers, without giving further explanation.

The previous evening, she revealed that she hadn’t been well for a few days.

‘Thanks 4 tuning into RHOA 2nite! I have been very sick for the past couple of days but I wanted 2 Thank my tweetie pies,’ she tweeted on Sunday.

While the 45-year-old is yet to disclose her illness, she retweeted a message from one of her followers, @maddoxmusic, who speculated that it’s “probably from exhaustion. She has the most grueling schedule of any celebrity.” NeNe’s retweet included the message: “I work my butt off.”

Up until recently, the actress has been working back-to-back on multiple shows, playing Sue Sylvester’s nemesis Roz Washington in “Glee” and Rocky Rhoades in the now-cancelled “The New Normal,” both of which were helmed by creator Ryan Murphy.
