9:39 A.M. PT --
  NeNe just posted a message on her website saying she went to the hospital after feeling short of breath... and was diagnosed with blood clots in her lung. She says she's recovering at home now and she's "thankful to be alive." She also reassured her fans she did NOT have a heart attack.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes was hospitalized this week for a mystery illness ... and the reality star says she's "blessed to be alive."

NeNe posted a photo of herself in a hospital room on Monday with IVs in her arms along with the caption, "My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive."

Just one night before she tweeted that she had been sick for the past couple of days ... but never specified what she was suffering from.

There's one more clue -- one of NeNe's followers tweeted that he thought Leakes was suffering from exhaustion due to her "grueling schedule" ... and NeNe rewtweeted the message, adding, "I work my butt off."

Story developing ...

Is she a smoker? Smoking plus birth control pills = blood clots that can kill you.

They MUST be filming. All for the cameras, like her break-up, drivorce and re-marriage. Anything for the cameras. She could be a Kartrashian.

Wow I don't care how you feel about a person and yes she is a person with feelings and for some of you on here to tell her to die is crazy, this woman is a mother and a grandmother not to mention has a husband and other family who loves her so for you to say that is very nasty. How would you feel If someone told you to die. her show is a job and someone likes it or it would not be on if you don't like it just don't watch it but never wish someone to die seriously who does that.
