"Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel says she was minutes from death after suffering an allergic reaction Sunday.

Frankel was rushed to a hospital after mistakenly eating soup containing fish at a Massachusetts restaurant.

She tweeted Monday night that she fell unconscious for 15 minutes before being saved by paramedics and an EpiPen. Frankel said she briefly believed she was suffering from a stroke.

"

Told if 5 mins later I'd be dead," she tweeted.

 

She said she has a rare fish allergy that led to her blacking out. She stayed in the hospital for two days with a blood pressure of 60/40.

Frankel was aware of her fish allergy. It actually came up from an episode of her reality show when she and the ladies were in Mexico.
