Kim Zolciak Biermann has been eliminated from Dancing With the Stars after she was unable to perform on Monday, 28th September. The Don’t Be Tardy star didn’t compete due to being hospitalized for a blood clot which caused a mini stroke.
During Monday night’s broadcast, Zolciak appeared via Skype from her Atlanta home and explained that her doctor didn’t clear her to fly, and that if she had lived closer, she would have driven to Los Angeles, where the show is taped.
Host Tom Bergeron explained that according to the ABC show’s rules, since she couldn’t dance because of medical reasons, she had to be eliminated. Her partner, Tony Dovolani, danced their scheduled I Dream of Jeannie routine with a fellow pro and the show’s dance troupe instead.
Kim is disappointed as she had hoped producers would use a video of her practice session to score her this week which they have done in the past for Melissa Rycroft in 2012 and Amy Purdy in 2014.
