The rep says D’Andra’s been admitted into the COVID ward at UT Southwestern Hospital. It’s unclear when she contracted the virus, or how long she’s been at the hospital … but her team says her oxygen levels have been borderline, and she’s starting Remdesivir.
That’s one of the anti-viral drugs President Trump was given when he came down with COVID — part of the cocktail of therapeutics he says helped him recover quickly.
Simmons’ diagnosis and health status is noteworthy — as she appears to be the only ‘Real Housewife’ who’s had to get checked in and treated for coronavirus. Others have had it — including ‘RHOBH’ stars Kyle Richards, Kathy Hilton and Dorit Kemsley, but none required hospitalization.
As we’ve reported … Bravo production crews have taken several steps to help keep the different ‘Housewives’ sets as safe as possible. They’re requiring masks on everyone who isn’t on-camera, they’re doing temp checks, they’re mostly shooting outdoors … and everyone’s encouraged to spread out. Still, despite that, some stars and others on set have caught it.
As for D’Andra … she’s been a staple on the Dallas iteration of the series for years now, and fans love her. Get well soon!
