Kim Zolciak-Biermann Withdrawn From ‘DWTS’ After Mini Stroke



If you tuned in for Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, you were probably just as shocked as we were to learn that  Kim Zolciak-Biermann would not be returning.

During the hit ABC dancing competition show, Zolciak Skyped in to talk about her condition after suffering a mini stroke last week. But during the segment, host Tom Bergeron, explained that because the Don’t Be Tardy star was unable to perform due to her health, she was automatically being withdrawn from the show.

“I feel really great. I dont know if you know, but I rehearsed on Saturday,” she explained after after her dancing partner, Tony Dovolani, performed a routine with Olympic Gold Medalist, Jenna Johnson. “I learned that whole dance that Jenna just did, but then my doctor told me yesterday that it’s too soon to fly.”

In fact, Kim, who was reportedly blindsided by the news, shared an Instagram video on Monday night showing her practice with Tony. In the post, the reality star expressed that she was “really sad” to not be returning.

In response to getting eliminated, Dovolani explained “I just wish her well. I mean the family comes first, health comes first. I’m just so glad she listened to the doctors. They said she might be able to fly on Sunday next week, so if the rules could be bent, just this one time?”

Following last week’s taping of the show, Kim flew back to Atlanta where she experienced a TIA (mini stroke). According to the mom of six, the left side of her body went “completely numb” and her “speech was gone.”

Zolciak was released from the hospital on Friday and has been recovering at her home in Atlanta.
