Kim Zolciak was forced to withdraw from ‘Dancing With The Stars’ on Sept. 28, but the number to vote for her and Tony Dovolani was still working after the show! In an attempt to keep her place in the competition, the reality star took to Snapchat and begged fans to keep voting…even after her elimination.
She’s not giving up! Even after it was announced that Kim Zolciak, 37, was disqualified from Dancing With The Stars because she didn’t show up to the Sept. 28 live show, the Bravo star held out hope that she could still make a comeback. And when she found out her voting number was still up and running, she petitioned her Snapchat followers to call up!
“Everybody, dial in our number because it STILL works and that way maybe I can come back!” she urged her fans in a video, in which she appeared makeup-free alongside one of her sons. She shared the same message on Twitter, explaining that the call-in number was still working and that fans should show their support by dialing.
The Don’t Be Tardy star suffered a mini stroke 12 hours after last week’s show, and although she practiced her routine for this week, her doctor didn’t give her the okay to fly from Atlanta to Los Angeles so soon. Kim appeared on Monday’s show via Skype, but, unfortunately, the DWTS rules state that anybody who is unable to dance during the show because of an injury or illness must withdraw.
“I feel great. I rehearsed all day Saturday, but then my doctor told me it was too soon to fly,” she explained. “I could go next week, but now, I’m really sad. I can dance, I just can’t fly. If I lived in Vegas, I would be there tonight.” Such a heartbreaking way to go out. And fans were totally in Kim’s corner, too, tweeting their support to bring her and partner Tony Dovolani back next week.
The idea that Kim and Tony’s voting number was still working after her elimination is pretty interesting. People who call in are only allowed a certain amount of votes per episode, so if they were used on Kim, does that take away from votes other contestants could have gotten?! We totally feel for Kim after her elimination, but the show must go on, and it really isn’t fair to put the others at a disadvantage.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kim and Tony should be allowed back on the show? What do you think of her voting line remaining open after the elimination?
