Kim Zolciak suffered a mini-stroke that made her unable to talk and lose feeling on one side of her body. This was so bad that Kim couldn’t fly, and it actually took her out of Dancing with the Stars, which made it where she ended up going home way earlier than planned. Now the rumors are flying that Kim Zolciak’s waist trainer could have been the cause.
Kim is constantly posting photos on her social networks of her wearing the waist trainer and has never been shy about using it to help keep her body amazing after six children. Us Magazine shared that Kim is insisting she would never do anything that wasn’t safe and that this waist trainer didn’t cause her any problems.
Zolciak shared a photo of herself in the waist trainer and looking great. Along with it, Kim shared a caption speaking out to everyone who had something negative to say about her choices.
“Good morning!!!! You guys know I love my @nowaistclique waist trainer, I have heard all sorts of ppl commenting on ‘what might have caused my mini stroke’ let me be real clear, I am a very healthy woman who takes great care of myself.
“I was born with PFO (a hole in my heart) which enabled a clot to cross over and stop oxygen to my brain for a very short time in turn causing me to have a TIA, I will be having heart surgery to repair it. By no means did my waist trainer cause my blood clot or my TIA.
“I would never use anything nor promote anything that I personally didn’t love or something that was dangerous. I LOVE LIFE WAY TOO MUCH! and I have a whole lotta living to do.”
It does turn out that Kim Zolciak had a heart condition, and she didn’t even know that something like this could happen at all. Things are going great for Kim since getting kicked off of Dancing with the Stars, and People shared that Kim has decided to move on and is actually doing something new. She is going to be a motivational speaker. This is kind of surprising after Kim Zolciak had such a hard time doing her first speaking event. They showed it all on Don’t Be Tardy, and Kim almost didn’t go through with the event, but it turned out great and seems like she may have found her calling.
Kim shared with her fans letting them know the news. She sounds really excited about this new journey that she will be going on.
“I’m so flipping EXCITED!!!!! I have talked about this for years and I’m finally doing it! You guys really motivated me after watching some of my speech on Don’t Be Tardy the comments/emails you guys wrote me were awesome.”
Kim Zolciak was cleared to dance again, but she wasn’t able to fly, which made it where she could not perform on Dancing with the Stars at all. Zolciak has shared that she will be back once again for the finale to show off her dance moves. Kim really improved a lot in just her little bit of time on the show, so hopefully she has an amazing dance to show her fans on the final show. There is no way she can win now, but, of course, Kim can show off her dance skills and have fun doing it.
Do you feel like Kim Zolciak could be wrong and her waist trainer was part of the problem that caused her stroke? Would it be best for her to stop wearing it just in case? Sound off in the comments below on your thoughts.
