Is Kim Zolciak returning to ‘Dancing With The Stars’ or not?! That’s STILL the question on everyone’s mind just hours before the Sept. 28 live show, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the reality star isn’t even on-set yet. Is she done for the whole season?!
Don’t get your hopes up if you were planning on watching Kim Zolciak, 37, return to the dance floor on this week’s episode of Dancing With The Stars. The Bravo star is still recovering from her TIA stroke, and just hours ahead of show time, she still hasn’t shown up to the stage. But what does that mean for her fate for the rest of the season? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
“They are weighing out options for her to either remove herself from the show, or be given an extra week to heal and then return,” a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Producers are going back and forth with her and their own plans to figure it all out. It’s a bit of an ordeal right now on set.” Kim will reportedly appear on the show via FaceTime tonight, according to TMZ.
This goes along with what HollywoodLife.com suspected after seeing Kim’s Snapchat early Monday morning — she appeared to be at her home in Atlanta at that time, while everyone else was hard at work preparing for the live taping, and it certainly didn’t seem like she’d be making it to Los Angeles in time for the show. Of COURSE, we totally understand if the 37-year-old isn’t feeling up to dancing yet, especially since she just got home from the hospital in the late afternoon on Sept. 25 and she has six kids to worry about at home.
But Kim has made it clear that she really wants to tough it out and get back on the show. “I want to thank everyone for their love and support over the past few days,” she said in a statement to HollywoodLife.com on Sept. 27. “I am now home with my family, resting and taking care of my health. I can’t express how much I love dancing and this whole experience, and I hope this will not be the end of dancing.” She was even reportedly practicing her moves with pro parter Tony Dovolani while in the hospital. Talk about dedication!
