RHOD star D'Andra Simmons reveals she's now wearing cast on BOTH legs following freak accident days after foot surgery
REAL Housewives Of Dallas’ D’Andra Simmons revealed she is now wearing a cast on BOTH legs following a freak accident days after her foot surgery last month.
In December, the Bravo star underwent a procedure to replace her ankle and the same week, she was diagnosed with Covid-19.
The RHOD star opened up about her unlucky streak during the latest episode of the Realitea podcast.
D’Andra said that she is wearing a cast on one leg from her December surgery and is now wearing another cast on her other leg from from spraining her non-injured foot while “hopping around."
She explained: "I had a full ankle replacement right before Christmas, and then I contracted COVID about 3 days later.”
However, the 51-year-old said she is optimistic the cast will come off soon and replaced with a walking boot.
She continued: ”Next week, I'm crossing fingers, I go back to the doctor and he may put me in a walking boot, because it'll be two months.
“But in the meantime, I also injured my other foot because I sprained it hopping around, because I only have one foot.”
As for how the injury occurred, the reality star admitted: “We have this ledge in the shower and I hopped over it and slid and that was the end of that.
“My mother has always called me an accident going somewhere to happen, so she's absolutely right.”
Last month, D’Andra was treated at a Texas hospital after medical professionals found her oxygen levels to be “borderline."
Her representative told PEOPLE earlier today: "D’Andra Simmons has tested positive for COVID and has been admitted to the COVID ward at UT Southwestern Hospital in Texas.
"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.”
Friend of the star, Jennifer Davis, sent her well-wishes via Twitter where she wrote: "Please pray for [D'Andra Simmons], she has COVID, is in ICU on Oxygen.”
Two days later, D’Andra had just shared a holiday photo to her Instagram, where she mentioned how grateful she was for family and showed off her huge leg cast.
After announcing the arrival of her new puppy, Ruby, the star wrote: "She will be keeping me company as I heal from my ankle replacement and foot surgery. Ruby truly couldn’t have come at a better time in my life!”
D'Andra is starring in the current season of RHOD after filming took place during Summer 2020 as the cast battled Covid spreading across the US.
Real Housewives Of Dallas airs Tuesday’s at 9pm EST on Bravo.
