The special, E! Entertainment Special: Nene Leakes, airs tonight on the network at 10 p.m., and reporter Marc Malkin chatted with the reality star.
“I’m not 100 percent, but I’m trying to get there,” The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared. “It’s been tough, but I’ve been pretty strong. I’m coming back.”
“It takes about six weeks to really get back to feeling yourself, but I’m on blood thinners now,” she said in the interview. “I would have to say I’m about 80 percent. I’m doing a lot better.”
Nene also added that she’ll spend Christmas at home, but then she’ll head to Las Vegas for New Year’s with family and friends.
