Kim Zolciak Suffered a Paralyzing Mini Stroke Hours After ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Scary health news from Kim Zolciak!

The Dancing with the Stars contestant revealed that she suffered a stroke yesterday that left her temporarily paralyzed on her left side and unable to speak. She’s okay now.

After filming DWTS, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star took the red-eye from Los Angeles to Atlanta, and within minutes of landing suffered a transient ischemic attack (“mini stroke”).

She wrote:

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. 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

On Monday, Zolciak had said she “needed Botox desperately” before her DWTS performance. Unclear if there’s any relation to her stroke:

She told Fox411,

I had to get Botox. I needed it. So my doctor came in for me last night. He just had a baby two days ago [but] he came in for me. On a more serious note, it does help with my migraines. I’ve got it since I was 23 and so I’m at the 90 day mark—if I go past that, I end up in the bed with the migraines. I have to hurry up and get it but it works.

Although she’s still in the running with partner Tony Dovolani, Zolciak’s scores on DWTS have been very low.
