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.
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.

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).”
