Despite her release from the hospital, the Real Housewives of Orange County star tells E! News that she is not feeling much better. The reason she was hospitalized? Internal bleeding due to ulcers in her colon.
Vicki also denies reports that her hospitalization was caused by anxiety from her divorce. “It’s not due to anxiety,” says Vicki. “It’s not due to a divorce. I’m very sick. I was hemorrhaging. It was very scary. I have internal bleeding in my colon, and they fixed it.”
Vicki tells E! she had surgery on Friday and is now home on required bed rest. “I’m not feeling good,” says Vicki. “They said I’ll be OK. It could flare up again, but I’m very healthy and I didn’t do anything to cause this. People just get sick. I’m going to be OK.”
E! also reports that Vicki’s soon to be ex-husband Donn Gunvalson paid her a hospital visit despite their pending divorce. “It’s amicable,” Vicki said. “We’re perfect. We’re not fighting.”
According to E! Online, Vicki, who filed for divorce from husband Donn Gunvalson just a little over a week ago, was hospitalized for internal bleeding, confirms an employee from her company, Coto Insurance & Financial Services.
Though the general consensus seems to be that the 47-year-old reality star’s condition is not that serious, Vicki will remain in the hospital for further tests so that doctors can determine the source of the bleed.
Vicki’s cast-mate Jeana Keough posted the following on her facebook page yesterday – “Vicki Gunvalson rushed to the hospital, she is fine resting comfortably with her beautiful daughter by her side. Prayers always help but I am assured she is spending the night and it’s not serious, how do you say whoo hoo!”
