‘RHOD’ star D’Andra Simmons hospitalized with COVID-19

“Real Housewives of Dallas” star D’Andra Simmons is thankful for her health after being hospitalized with COVID-19 in December.

The Bravo star, 51, took to Instagram to express her gratitude on Tuesday, posting a quote from Oprah Winfrey, “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”

“As it was for many others, for me 2020 was a year filled with losses, disappointments, and defeat,” she wrote alongside the quote. “This year has truly tested my strength to embrace the positive in life.”

She explained that getting coronavirus forced her to slow down and re-evaluate what’s important to her.

“It has given me such appreciation to be alive and thankful for everything I have, and for everyone who cares for me,” she continued. “For those who took the time to reach out when I was in my darkest hour. I am grateful to be here! Welcome 2021! I have so much more to do! God isn’t finished with me yet!”

Simmons said that she is “so excited to reconnect” with her loved ones as Season 5 of “RHOD” kicks off.

She was released from the COVID ward at UT Southwestern Hospital just in time for New Year’s Eve.

“I want to send so much love and gratitude to all of the staff at UTSW Hospital,” she said upon her release on Dec. 31. “From the nurses, techs, doctors and everyone in between who helped me throughout my time at the hospital. I want to say THANK YOU for taking such good care of me and putting your own health on the line to make sure I recovered safely. ❤️🌟 Yay, this is the BEST New Year’s Eve night I could have ever imagined.”
