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).”
Val considers his hometown New York City. “My parents dropped everything in Ukraine, their job, their friends, and came to New York City with nothing just so that their kids could become something,” shares Val. “Everything I have now is because of them.”
Once again, Val and Tamar butt heads in the rehearsal. When Val explains his vision for the dance, Tamar takes issue with him chasing her around shirtless. Wait, what? A shirtless Val is everything. #FansSelf #Shallow #DontCare I’m not here for Tamar making Val keep his shirt on.
About last week’s abysmal start, Kim says, “It was all kind of a blur – the scores and what they [the judges] said. I am really disappointed in myself because I obviously can do much better. But I mean where can you go from here but up?”
Kim focuses on Atlanta for “Hometown Glory” week.
“I grew up in Connecticut,” explains Kim, “but I have been here in Atlanta for 16 years. Atlanta’s where Big Poppa all my dreams came true. I met my amazing husband here. And I have had five of my children – out of six – here in Atlanta.”
Does Kim dance better this week? Avoid elimination?

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?
When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”
Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.
