Former RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson has revealed that she battled cancer for two years.
“I had cancer! I just had my whole f*cking uterus taken out,” she told Jeff Lewis on his Sirius XM Rado Show.
In a statement to Celebuzz!, she said: “I was diagnosed with uterine cancer almost 2 years ago and I did share it on Jeff Lewis’s Podcast when I appeared last week. Due to the diagnosis, I had to undergo a non-elective full hysterectomy. I was fortunate to catch it early thanks to always adhering to my annual exam schedule.”
She continued, “While I have lived my life in the public eye for over 15 years, at this point in my life, I decided to keep this particular health diagnosis private. I also wasn’t looking for sympathy by revealing this, but most importantly I encourage women to get their annual pap smears, as I had no symptoms whatsoever. If I didn’t, most likely it would have been much more serious.”
