Alek Skarlatos may be busy dancing his way into our hearts on Dancing With The Stars, but did you know that he could have very well been involved in the recent Oregon campus shooting? It may sound crazy, but it is true. Skarlatos was actually enrolled in the school, but then got an offer to hit the dance floor.
Now, Skarlatos, who gained international recognition for helping to stop an armed terrorist on a French train in August, is giving credit to Dancing With The Stars for saving his life this time around. That explains why Alek bolted out of rehearsals when the shooting happened.

Kim Zolciak had to bow out of the Dancing With The Stars competition this week, as the Don’t Be Tardy star recently suffered a mini stroke. But despite her recent health scare, Zolciak assured producers that she was cleared to dance, just not to fly, so she was hoping to dance in Atlanta (via satellite). The show, however turned her down, and Kim and her partner Tony Dovolani have been petitioning to get back on the show.
Regardless of how many signatures she manages to gather, it looks as though the show is not budging on allowing Zolciak back into the competition. In fact, long time judge, Carrie Ann Inaba recently spoke out, admitting that it wouldn’t be fair for Zolciak to come back now.

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!”
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.”
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.
Originally, the Don’t Be Tardy star expected to be released from the hospital on Thursday. That didn’t happen. On Friday, Kim shared that she was going in for “one more procedure” but “things were looking up.” TMZ has since learned that the procedure Kim had done wasn’t for the stroke, but for a serious, underlying heart condition which was discovered while Kim was in the hospital.
Yikes! Kim Zolciak has suffered a Transient Ischemic Attack, aka a mini stroke. Since signing on as a contestant on the current season of Dancing With the Stars, Kim has been trying to figure out the logistics. Kim has been flying back and forth from her home in Atlanta and the DWTS studio in Los Angeles. And this week Kim’s body seems to be telling her enough, already!
Kim shared that right after arriving home on Wednesday morning, she was rushed to the hospital. She posted the selfie above, writing, “The last 24hrs have been whirlwind! I landed yesterday morning from LAX (took the red eye right after DWTS). I got home and within minutes suffered a TIA (mini stroke).”
