Last week, after Kim Zolicak’s performance on Dancing With the Stars, the Real Housewives of Atlantastar revealed she had suffered a “mini stroke.” The reality star revealed via Instagram details of the scary incident.
She posted a snapshot featuring herself in her hospital gown along with the caption, “The last 24hrs have been [a] 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) the left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone. Extremely grateful for @sladeosborne @briellebiermann @nikitpressley @kroybiermann for quick reactions! I have 100% of my feeling back THANK GOD. Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today! #CrazyAgeDoesntMatter.”

Although she received positive messages and suppport from her fans, one person isn’t buying it. During the Wendy Williams Show, the talk-show host claimed she felt Zolciak faked her stroke as a ploy to attain more votes and push her fan base forward in the reality dance competiton.
Zolciak fired back at Williams, calling her claims, “disgusting” and “appalling.” Zolciak has since been removed from DWTS due to rules set forth by the show.
