Zolciak, who is partnered with Tony Dovolani this season, shared the news herself via Instagram, saying that after she arrived home following a red-eye flight Tuesday night, "the left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone." She thanked her husband Kroy and daughter Brielle for "quick reactions."
According to her Instagram post, Zolciak was still in the hospital as of Thursday morning, but was scheduled to be released that day.
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
In Dancing's second week, Zolciak and the rest of the celebs were required to learn two dances, to be performed on Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday's show, she and Dovolani received a fairly low score from the judges on their foxtrot.
