Kim took to Instagram to ask fans to sign a petition to bring Kim and Tony back on the show. “I was cleared to dance on Friday when I was discharged from the hospital, so Saturday morning I was up rehearsing not even 12 hours after,” added Kim. “I had no restrictions BUT flying until today. Yes the timing sucked but ultimately my health is first. I wanted to dance here in ATL via satellite. I could dance just not fly. I’m forever grateful for my dance partner Tony who has always supported me and all of my amazing fans!!! Regardless I will be dancing my ass off at the finale!”
Up next for the former Real Housewives of Miami star is a supporting role in a film titled Another Day in Paradise, which will focus on three generations of a family involved in a famous water park. Joanna plays Stacy, a first aid nurse, and stars alongside Pretty Little Liars star Brendan Robinson and Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz.
Did I mention this is the third movie Joanna scored just this year? #winning

Backtracking to Saturday, Kim explained via Dancing with the Stars, “I had a blood cot which caused a mini stroke – TIA – and then I ended up being in the hospital for three days. I have not had time to even think about rehearsing. If I can dance, and I get a clean bill of health, I absolutely will because I love it. But my health comes first. It’s kind of up in the air.”
“You may remember I did this show – this little show on a major network – called TheCelebrity Apprentice,” said Lisa. “The year that I did it, it was definitely, because of me, called Celebrity Fight Club because I hated everyone. What makes it worse for the women celebrities is that we have to spend two hours in hair and makeup every day because we look so bedraggled. One morning, like six weeks into the show, I am super tired and at 4 a.m. my makeup artist comes in and she goes, ‘Lisa, listen to this, everyone in wardrobe is saying Teresa – From the Real Housewives, who was also on the show with me. You know, the one in jail now. – is definitely pregnant because her stomach appears to be getting bigger.’ I’m like, ‘I need to investigate this because I need to be in on all the tea, honey.'”
On her show today, Wendy reportedly called out Kim for sharing a selfie from her hospital bed and implied that Kim might be faking an illness to get out of the dance competition. While Wendy admitted that she hated her time on Dancing with the Stars and would have done anything – but fake a serious illness – to get out of it, she said Kim should have just stubbed her toe, called it a day, and went home. Kimignored it lashed out at Wendy on her Instagram.
