Real Housewives of Dallas star D’Andra Simmons is in hospital with COVID-19, her rep confirms to the Observer.
Simmons was inducted into the UT Southwestern Medical Center.
“Her oxygen level was borderline and she will start Remdesivir,” her representative wrote in an email. “At this point, we ask that you respect the privacy of her and your family and send your prayers for a speedy recovery.”
Simmons posted on Twitter at Christmas and thanked her husband for a Chanel bag. On Christmas Eve, she wrote about her new puppy to keep her company while she recovers from ankle and foot replacement surgery.
I am especially grateful that my family, friends, and the two newest fur babies have joined the Simmons-Lock household! Thanks also to Jeremy for my gorgeous @CHANEL bag! I think I was a good girl after all ???? Hope everyone enjoys this great vacation. Merry Christmas! #RHOD pic.twitter.com/AWRWBw1bph

The Real Housewives of Dallas shot their fifth season this summer. Bravo told us that the production followed a “comprehensive health and safety plan”.
“The plan was developed in accordance with CDC guidelines, all state and local regulations, and NBCUniversal’s own safety guidelines,” the statement said. “The health and safety of the cast and crew is Bravo’s priority for all of its shows.”
In December, Bravo stopped production on season 11 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after star Kyle Richards and her daughter tested positive for COVID-19.
