The TV personality also shared that she has been welcoming visitors and also been trying to go out and about when she can. 

“I have good days and bad days but…yeah. They say it’s normal,” she said in the video. “Some days I’m up, some days I’m down. Today I felt like going to the salon so that was good. I normally don’t go to the salon. I usually let people come to my house, so today I decided to drive to the salon and actually sit in the salon with other women. And that was good, to be around other people.”

Leakes also uploaded a selfie photo on Friday (Sept. 17), captioning the post: “Pushing thru.”
