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.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite shots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow, Curtis Stone, and Kim Zolciak, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It is tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.
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?
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.
