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.
Oh Monica. I don’t know if I’m more disappointed to find out that you’re friends with Kim Zolciak-Biermann or that you are okay being a part of last night’s Don’t Be Tardy. Either way, last night’s episode didn’t grate on my last nerve per the usual, and I truly enjoyed seeing a deeper side to Kim and Brielle’s mother-daughter relationship.
As the family jokes about Brielle’s ever present ditziness, Kroy suggests she check out Hooked on Phonics. Thanks for the tip, Kroy, but Brielle is just fine only speaking the language she knows. She’s not interested in learning a new one. When Kroy tries to explain that phonics isn’t a different language, I can actually see a light bulb turn on above Brielle’s head as she slowly whispers, “Oh Rosetta Stone!” Brielle has a new path and a plan. She wants to be the next Guiliana Rancic. Kim offers up her celebrity friends as practice interviews.
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.
