Jennifer Aydin, who is currently part of the main cast of "Real Housewives of New Jersey," revealed she tested positive for coronavirus.

The 42-year-old shared the news of her COVID-19 diagnosis in a video posted on Instagram.

“I’ve been sick for the past 10 days and Monday is when my test came back positive,” the mother of five captioned the clip.  “But today is the first day that I’m finally starting to feel better. Keeping my kids away has been the hardest and I’m grateful that I have no breathing issues. My days haven’t been so bad, aside from a lot of fatigue and sleeping. At night is when it’s the worst for me because of the mix of sweating and chills. I’m taking my vitamins and drinking hot liquids. We’ll all get through this.”

Aydin elaborated that she had “extreme fatigue” but “no fever” and urged her plastic surgeon husband to bring home a coronavirus test.

“He was reluctant at first because I didn’t have the normal symptoms like a fever or heavy cough,” the Bravo star said. “So by day two, or three I think it was … I insisted he bring home a test.”

After getting the positive diagnosis, Aydin went on to experience “extreme night sweats” and lost her sense of taste and smell.

She’s remained quarantined in her room away from her children and disclosed she is “doing better now.”

While Aydin is the first "Real Housewives" star to reveal they have coronavirus, her boss and executive producer, Andy Cohen, disclosed his diagnosis last month.

The 51-year-old has since recovered after spending 12 days in isolation.
