Posted on


Kim Kolciak-Biermann had quite a scare following Tuesday’s installment of Dancing With the Stars: the co-star of Real Housewives of Atlanta suffered a mini-stroke after returning home from her night of hoofing.

“The last 24 [hours] have been whirlwind!” the 37-year-old reality star posted on Instagram. “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 … I have 100 percent feeling back back THANK God. Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today.”

She ended her post with #crazyagedoesn’tmatter.


Kolziak-Biermann and her partner, Tony Dovolani, performed the foxtrot on Tuesday as part of Hometown Week. They earned 18 out of a possible 30 points.
