Kim Zolciak seems intent on proving her doubters wrong. On Sunday, a day that she probably would have spent in Los Angeles rehearsing for Dancing with the Stars with her partner Tony Dovolani had they not been forced to withdraw last week, Kim promised her fans that she’ll “kick a**” on the dance competition’s finale episode.
Earlier in the day, Paula Deen, the TV personality and celebrity chef currently competing on the show with pro Louis Van Amstel, tweeted that she and others miss Kim. Attached to Paula’s tweet was a photo of herself standing behind a parking space sign designating the area for Kim.

Kim appreciated Paula’s support. Kim told Paula that she misses them so much that it hurts her heart. Kim added that she’s rooting for Paula and reminded her that she’ll see her at the finale.
I miss you guys so much!! It hurts my heart! I'm rooting for you see you at the Finale
Kim later posted an Instagram message that highlighted Paula’s support. Kim wrote that while her “heart is so heavy” not being able to be on the Dancing With The Stars set with everyone else, she’s “healthy and happy” and was finally able to see her husband, Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann, play in a game live. Kim added that she’ll be back on the dance competition’s finale episode, where she’ll “kick a**.” Kim’s hashtag described the dance show as the best experience she has ever had.
“How sweet is@pauladeen_official @paula_deen 😍 my heart is so heavy not being on the set today of DWTS with everyone, but I’m healthy and happy I finally was able to attend my husbands game! I’ll be back for the finale in NOV I’ll kick ass 😎😎#BestExperienceEver#IAdoreEveryoneOnDWTS#BackSomeday.”
Kim Zolciak, and her partner, Tony Dovolani, were forced to withdraw from the show last Monday after Kim didn’t appear to dance following a mini-stroke in Atlanta. Tony instead performed their rehearsed dance with another dancer from the show. Kim did make a video call to the show from her home in Atlanta, during which she explained that her doctors didn’t clear her to fly yet. She said that had she lived closer, such as a few hours away, she would have driven to the set to perform with Tony.
After Kim and Tony were told the news that they would have to withdraw from the competition in accordance with the rules, they both asked their fans to petition for them to be brought back on by calling the show.

Kim, who starred on five seasons of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta and can be currently seen on her spin-off show, Don’t Be Tardy, even posted a short video showing her and Tony rehearsing their dance on Saturday, shortly after she went home from the hospital on Friday.
Kim and Tony received dismal scores for their first dance but showed improvement for their second dance. Despite Kim’s improvement, there has been speculation that she faked suffering a mini-stroke in order to get out of the competition. In response to one person who questioned why she would risk her health after supposedly suffering a mini-stroke, Kim said that she was cleared by her medical team to dance.
I was obviously cleared by my medical team!!!!!!!! https://t.co/5KBwQoL8Rk

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, even TV talk show host Wendy Williams publicly wondered on her show whether Kim Zolciak faked her mini-stroke. Kim responded by lashing out at Wendy and saying that Wendy’s just mad that she didn’t want to go on her talk show.
