PureDWTS Season 21, Week 3 – TMZ Claims Kim Zolciak “Will Not Dance Tonight”

Take it with a grain of salt, as the show tends to play items like this pretty close to the chest – cause DRAMA, y’all – but TMZ is reporting that Kim will not dance on tonight’s show after her mini stroke last week:

Kim Zolciak will not appear on Monday night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” because she’s unable to leave Atlanta after her medical emergency … TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Kim flew back to Atlanta after last week’s show and almost immediately went into the hospital … she says because of a mini-stroke. We’re told she had a heart procedure Friday and was released, but doctors advised her not to do anything strenuous or travel.

We’re told Kim will appear on the show via FaceTime. Her long-term prognosis on the show is uncertain.

While it seems rather obvious (to those of us capable of intelligent thought, at least) that there’s just no way for Kim to dance, I would fully expect TPTB to keep pushing the “Will Kim dance or not???” suspense up until the end of the show, when they will inevitably announce that she’s withdrawing – I just don’t see any possible way for her to continue.  But best wishes to Kim as she heals, surrounded by family 🙂

    Bummer. But the best thing is for her to withdraw. They’ll announce it at the end of the show of course for the drama.

    Didn’t really notice it at the time, since I was rushing to get this posted…but anyone else find it rather curious that they say “she says because of a mini stroke” instead of just “because of a mini stroke”? Wonder if they’re kinda skeptical about the cause of Kim’s hospital stay…

    Honestly as much as I like her now I would rather they just get it out of the way early in the show on whether or not She is going to dance.

    Is it possible that they could let her have this week off to rest and then allow her to come back next week? This of course if she isn’t eliminated for having the lowest amount of votes.

    I remember in Strictly Come Dancing, two seasons ago, they let a contestant have a week off and then she came back the next week. Then again, she didn’t have a stroke – she just fainted from fatigue.

    I don’t really see this as a fleeting ailment, though – heart surgery is no joke. There’s a reason they make cardiac patients rest for awhile. I won’t rule anything out, but I just don’t see how Kim could still do the show this season. This is just too major a setback.

    I noticed that too Courtney. It never even crossed my mind that she would be lying about the cause of her hospital stay. I can’t imagine why she would.
