Dancing With The Stars often showcases the contestants’ trials and tribulations throughout the season. This season, Kim Zolciak, 37, has faced the ultimate setback — she had a mini-stroke that landed her in the hospital. She plans to continue on in the competition, though, and the show would love to feature her recovery process with behind the scenes footage, according to a HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVE insider.

“The show is trying to set up with Kim to film some of the recovery from inside the hospital but they haven’t gotten clearance yet with the hospital. They would like to film and keep it a secret from fans until the next show,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Kim should definitely take her time recovering, but according to doctors, she should be fine to return to DWTS soon! “If Kim has been evaluated and put on blood thinners if need be, there is no reason she can’t return to her regular routine,” Dr. Bruce Lee, M.D. told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She could return to the strenuous activities involved with Dancing With The Stars if she gets the OK from her doctors.”
In case you missed it, Kim suffering a transient ischemic attack (mini stroke) after returning home from her Dancing With The Stars performance on Sept. 23. “The last 24 hrs have been whirlwind!” she wrote, alongside an Instagram photo of herself in a hospital bed. “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.”
We are so happy to hear Kim is ok! In her caption, she explained, “I have 100% of my feeling back,” she explained. “THANK GOD. Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today.”
