Kim Zolciak Stroke


Kim Zolciak-Biermann suffered a stroke, the reality star and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant revealed. Fortunately, after having initially lost sensation on the left side of her body, as well as her speech, she fully recovered. Zolciak’s stroke occurred on Wednesday morning, and she’s being released from an Atlanta hospital on Thursday.

Along with a photo of herself being hooked up to a monitor at a hospital, Zolciak wrote on Instagram, “The last 24hrs have been 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.” She then thanked those who tended to her, including her daughter Brielle and her boyfriend, a makeup artist friend, and her husband, NFL star Kroy Biermann.

Zolciak wrote on Instagram, “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.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, Zolciak has been competing on Season 21 of “Dancing With The Stars.” While she has been consistently on the far lower end of the scores, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has remained safe up going into the third week of competition. It remains unclear whether the mini-stroke will affect her competing next week. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for the show.
