Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville has been hospitalized for a mystery infection that made her hand swell up.
On August 2nd, she shared a post on Instagram with the caption: “Hey guys yes I was admitted to the hospital yesterday and I have amazing first responders taking care of me! We are not exactly sure what we are dealing with we believe it may be an infected spider bite. More tests to run.”
