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).”
When one plastic surgery obsessed Kim seeks solace in another! Kim Zolciak is currently in LA appearing on Dancing With The Stars, and while in town she had an emergency of the facial droop-age sort. Describing herself as desperate for Botox, she turned to a source she knew could help a girl out in a jam: Kim Kardashian! Well, Kim Kardashian’s facial scientist, at least.
Kim Z praised Dr. Ourian‘s amazing cool laser skills on instagram and gushed about his flawless skin creating abilities. I guess these things matter when dancing on national television. Kim has visited Dr. Ourian before – she and Brielle flew out there for some facial work and schmoozed with Khloe. Kylie Jenner also credits Dr. Ourian for being the one who ‘fixed’ her crazy lip injections.
On last night’s Don’t Be Tardy, we were treated to a trip down memory lane for the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star. The photographs (oh the photographs!) alone were enough to make it a fabulous episode. Kim Zolciak Biermann with dark brown hair and braces? Yes please! The episode begins with Kim and Kroy heading to Connecticut, leaving Gloria and chef Tracey in charge of the brood. Not only is Kim scheduled to do an appearance at a casino, she’s also returning to her roots. The casino is in her hometown!
In their absence, Kroy has charged Slade with building a shelving system for the boys’ playroom. Wait, what? Slade is unsure as to whether he’s capable of constructing furniture, but he concedes that it shouldn’t be impossible. After all, he can read. Just not well, right? Returning to the town where she grew up, Kim is overwhelmed by the time warp. Nothing has changed, except her nose. Seriously, does she think we are that dumb? As the couple cruises the main drag, Kim remembers working at every fast food restaurant from Burger King to Taco Bell to Krispy Kreme. She always got fired for giving out free food to her friends.
Kim accused Delta Airlines of intentionally trying to “separate” her and her luggage, which contained “very expensive items,” (her wigstand?!) when they informed her she arrived to too late to check bags. Did she believe the airline employees were trying to set her up to have items stolen during her flight from LA to Atlanta?
There’s a lot of good TV on tonight – Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives of Orange County, and Ladies of London, oh my! Thank goodness for the DVR! – but Kim Zolciak‘s debut on Dancing with the Stars is my top priority tonight. And I assume the live TV seven second delay will be ABC‘s #1 priority.
While Kim‘s #$@%! mouth will keep ABC busy Monday nights, Tony Dovolani has been tasked with trying to keep the Don’t Be Tardy star on her toes (well, anywhere but on her ass, eating pizza and drinking wine).
Tony said he’s happy with Kim so far, adding, “She’s got a great attitude. Just getting to meet her was a pleasure because in watching her show over all these years, you kind of have an idea of what this person is. And then you meet them and you go, ‘Oh, OK, hold on they’re different,’ or, ‘They’re the same.’ And in this particular case, she is exactly what she’s like on TV. And that’s pretty cool.”
