Eleven months after accusing her sister of stealing donation money meant to support her recovery after a devastating car crash, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Apple Watts is sharing an update on her progress.
In addition to discussing how she’s gradually gaining more and more mobility, Watts is thanking The Shade Room‘s very own Roommates for coming thru with the support when she needed it the most.

The Reality Star Thanks The Roomies For Helping Fund Her Recovery
Apple Watts shared the development during a recent chat with Justin Carter for TSR Investigates Updatez, and she happily shared that — nearly a year and a half after the accident — she’s up and movin’ with the assistance of a specialized walker.
“I’m able to stand on my own now. I’m able to walk — I can do everything by myself.”
As her physical therapy runs her a bill of $195 a week, Apple Watts says she’s leaned on donations from people like the Roomies to help cover the cost.
“The Shade Room helped me a lot. It gave more people knowledge of what’s been going on with me.”
Watts went as far as to say, “I am where I’m at because the people been donating.” Additionally, she acknowledged how, while her sister was defrauding her, “strangers” and “people with regular jobs” were the ones to offer their support.
“I depended on my sister — I depended on her. I depended on my family to help me. But strangers helped me. People with regular jobs helped me.”
She powerfully wrapped up by declaring, “I’m at where I’m at because of them.”
So far, Watts’ official GoFundMe — which readers can access here — has raised nearly $30K.
Apple Watts Plans To Get Plastic Surgery & Will Soon Return To TV
While Apple Watts’ recovery journey isn’t complete yet, she says she should hopefully walk independently by late 2023.
“Probably by the end of the year, I’ll be without a walker. But I won’t be all the way corrected, but I’ll be somewhat.”
She also noted that she plans to get operations on her arm and hand, along with some plastic surgery to “lift [her] eye up.”
As for what the future holds for her career, Apple Watts says she’ll soon be jumping back into reality television thanks to two upcoming projects: Hustle and Gamble and The Heart of Apple.
