The latest Dancing With the Stars show, which is now at its 21 season, saw reality star Kim Zolciak get eliminated from the competition for the mirrorball trophy.
Fans were saddened to learn that Kim Zolciak-Biermann will now have to withdraw from “Dancing With the Stars“. She added, “I am now home with my family, resting and taking care of my health”.
Zolciak-Biermann was unable to dance in Monday’s episode since she is still stuck in her Atlanta home after suffering from a ministroke. She appeared via satellite after Dovolani danced with a stand-in, Jenna Johnson, and insisted that she felt “really great…”
Bergeron explained that the show’s rules require that in the event of a health-related matter affecting a participant’s ability to participate in the game, the participant must withdraw.
Kim Zolciak Biermann is no longer in the running for the mirror ball trophy.
The 44-year-old DWTS alum told ET on Monday night that, despite the mini stroke that prevented the reality star from making it back in time for competition, it wouldn’t have been unfair to the other competitors to make an exception. Kim had a health issue that prevented her from dancing!
When Kim stated, “I hope this will not be the end of dancing”, she most likely meant dancing in general. Doctors kept her in the hospital and she told friends the docs performed a procedure Friday.
After the ruling was announced, Kim took to Twitter to campaign for a second chance on the show.
Meanwhile, Dovolani tried talking to management to bend the rules but his request was denied, ET added. I had no restrictions BUT flying until today. “I practiced for hours Saturday I was so excited to be there tonight!” she captioned a video with Dovolani.
“I’m forever grateful for my dance partner @tonydovolani who has always supported me and All Of you my fantastic fans!!!!!!!!” she wrote on social media with a link to the petition that is not affiliated with ABC.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays, 8 p.m. on ABC.
