Kim Zolciak-Biermann Withdrawn From ‘DWTS’ After Mini Stroke

Wendy Williams accused Kim Zolciak of faking her mini stroke to get sympathy from the people to vote for her for the “Dancing With The Stars” competition.


Kim Zolciak said she hoped her stint in “Dancing With The Stars” Season 21 will not be affected by her medical emergency and that the stroke she suffered will not make her bid farewell to dancing.

Unfortunately, the reality star wasn’t allowed to fly from Atlanta to L.A. because of the health risks of being in a pressurized cabin, so her partner Tony Dovolani danced with a stand-in.

On Monday night, in her absence, Dovolani performed their samba with another pro dancer, Jenna Johnson.

Sources say that Kim Zolciak was told by DWTS that she needed to Skype in for the show, and that Kim would be giving everyone an update on her health.

During the hospitalization, Zolciak’s fellow cast members and DWTS partner Tony Dovolani rallied around her. And would it have been fair for her not to dance, and still come back next week, and have someone else go home? “I am so happy she listened to the doctors”, he said.

While nothing has been released on Zolciak’s diagnosis or long-term health plan she seems more than ready to get back to the show. “If I lived in Vegas or even 12 hours [away, ] I’d be there tonight”. On Friday, she wrote, “Going in for one more procedure, things are looking up, don’t let the oxygen scare you its just protocol”. “On Tuesday night, when were dancing, I was like, ‘Babe, you’re not yourself. This clearly shows your warped mentality!!” the television personality captioned the screenshot photo showing the invite email.

Dovolani then asked Bergeron if the rules could be bent for Zolciak to continue on “DWTS”. “I can dance”, she insisted on air.

“Kim my thought is, I hope you’re not fibbing about the stroke”, the talk show host stated.


Speaking to Access Hollywood after the shocking news, Tony said Kim was “very disappointed” over leaving the competition. News. “I don’t care what the circumstance is; she’s got six kids”.
