Prayers up! A new member to the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, Tanya Sam has been hospitalized due to a car accident she was involved in. Initially, Sam thought the car accident was minor, but- in fact, the accident was more serious than she thought.

The reality star took to her Instagram to inform her fans, “So, remember that car accident that I was in Friday?” said Tanya on her InstaStory while in the hospital. “Turns out it might have been more serious than I thought. Turns out I was having some bleeding probably from the seatbelt impact trauma.”

She also revealed that she suffered from gastrointestinal bleeding, “Saturday I had that [Wearable Art] gala and I was actually pretty sick, turns out I was having some GI bleeding.”

She remained in the hospital for 36 hours, but appears to be making a full recovery.

We wish her well!
