Carrie Ann Inaba Feels It Would Be “Unfair” For Kim Zolciak To Return To Dancing With The Stars

Carrie Ann Inaba sounds off Kim Zolciak's DWTS return

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.

Whether you want to see Kim Zolciak back on Dancing With The Stars or not, it doesn’t look like the show is going to allow her to come back. But it’s not personal, at least according to Carrie Ann Inaba.

Chatting with US Weekly earlier this week, Inaba explained: “Well, I’ve always loved somebody who doesn’t give up, okay? I think that that’s a wonderful spirit to have. You should never give up. However, I also like rules, and our rules say that she has to be out. I think that it would be unfair for the other competitors if she came back because she did not compete, and it’s like she got a week to rest.”

Zolciak noted that whether or not they allow her back into the competition, she will still be dancing at the finale.  But, Inaba reiterated that she likely won’t be allowed to return: “Our show is tough, so having a week to rest could make a huge difference in the future for competitions. So, I kind of think that it’s okay the way it is and I wish her well, though, and I’m very glad to hear that she’s doing well health-wise.” 

As for Zolciak’s health scare, she seems to feeling better now, and even took some time to thank everyone for their support. She also shared this photo on Instagram (while thanking everyone in her life):
