Tanya Sam Talks IVF Journey, Upcoming Nuptials & More With BOSSIP
The nurse turned tech entrepreneur was able to hold her own among the group and Sam has confirmed that we’ll be seeing more of her soon because RHOA will be back for another season – with her on it.
“We were just in talks and figuring that out, Sam told us. “What’s interesting is that production came back and said they want us to start filming ASAP. From what I understand, it’s pretty early, but I think because there’s so much stuff going on post-reunion, and they want to capture that.”
Sam said filming is set to begin in the next couple of months, and everything – including her upcoming wedding to fiancé Paul Judge and their ongoing struggle to conceive via IVF – is fair game.
“If you’ve learned anything from past ‘Housewives,’ what happens in your life, happens on the camera and you have to share,” Sam said. “So I’m totally open to sharing that.”
Sam, 40, said she’s done nine cycles of IVF so far, enduring up to ten injections a day in her bid for pregnancy. Although she said the experience has been “intense,” she said she hopes that her story will help normalize the procedure in the African-American community.
“I have cousins and family members (who’ll say) the answer is ‘Pray on it,’” Sam said. “And I’m praying on it, but sometimes you need a little more medicine and science to add on that because there’s something going on there.”
