D’Andra Simmons of The Real Housewives of Dallas has been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19 at some point over the weekend.
Just ahead of the season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of Dallas, D’Andra Simmons has apparently been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to People. After testing positive for the virus, Simmons was hospitalized and is currently in a COVID ward inside of the UT Southwestern Hospital in Texas. Kelly Brady, a rep for Simmons, told the magazine, “Her oxygen levels were borderline and she will start remdesivir. At this time we ask you to respect her and her family’s privacy and to send your prayers for a speedy recovery.”
Jennifer Davis was the first to spark rumors when she posted on her Instagram story asking for prayers for Simmons. The post has since been deleted, which caused even more confusion. Simmons most recently posted on Instagram on Saturday, after spending the Christmas holiday with her close family. She thanked her husband for her new Chanel bag in the post.
It isn’t clear when Simmons started feeling ill, but she is recovering from having an ankle replacement and foot surgery before the holiday. None of the other wives have spoken out about her condition but Simmons was active on Twitter earlier today. A commenter noted that she might not run her own Twitter account at times, so perhaps she was not personally sending out the tweets. Hopefully, the hospitalization was just out of an abundance of caution.
The Real Housewives of Dallas is set to premiere Tuesday, Jan. 5, at 9 p.m. ET. on Bravo, where we will get a look at how the Texas ‘wives dealt with the pandemic at the start of it all. Get well soon, D’Andra!
