D’Andra Simmons was discharged from the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19. The Real Housewives of Dallas star confirmed the news with her followers on Instagram ahead of the early Season 5 premiere, which aired on New Year's Eve. 

“Who’s ready to watch SEASON 5 of The Real Housewives of Dallas with me tonight!? I’ll be watching the premiere from the comfort of MY HOME!!! Also, I want to send so much love and gratitude to all of the staff at UTSW Hospital,” she wrote. “From the nurses, techs, doctors and everyone in between who helped me throughout my time at the hospital.”

She continued, “I want to say THANK YOU for taking such good care of me and putting your own health on the line to make sure I recovered safely. ❤️🌟 Yay, this is the BEST New Year’s Eve night I could have ever imagined. I’m so happy to be home and with my #hotthubby @jeremytlock again!”

She added, “I’m out of the @utswmed COVID Ward and taking time to relax and recover at home. Finally something good to come out of 2020! God Bless 🙌 #RHOD #BravoTV #Dallas #Texas #NewYearsEve #2020 #2021 #Grateful.”

Prior to Simmons' post, her rep Kelly Brady released a statement. “D'Andra is set to be released from the hospital today as she was able to sleep last night off of oxygen for the first time, and she will be receiving her last remdesivir treatment this afternoon,” according to a statement via PEOPLE. “The doctors plan to collect the last of the research data for the Regeneron trial study before the end of the day. They anticipate sending her home later today with oxygen in case she has any setbacks.”

“The good news is she should be home in time to watch the sneak peek of RHOD season 5 this evening! Her family looks forward to celebrating the new season and the improvement in her condition together this evening.”

On Monday, it was reported that Simmons was being treated at a coronavirus ward in a Texas hospital after her oxygen levels were found to be "borderline."

Simmons' rep, Kelly Brady told PEOPLE at that time. “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.”
