We're glad she's okay — but we really hope this doesn't get her cast off the show!
Kim Zolciak scared us all last week when she suffered a terrifying stroke upon returning to Atlanta after taping Dancing with the Stars and now her fate on the reality show is up in the air.
That's because the Real Housewives star will not be in El Lay for Monday night's brand-new episode as her doctors warned her about flying after her recent heart procedure.

The 37-year-old Bravolebrity will be Skyping into the ABC show in lieu of actually dancing, but we're not sure whether or not she'll be cut from the cast if she fails to appear next week.
There's no word yet on how Kim's pro partner Tony Dovolani will be involved in the episode, but we're assuming he'll be supportive of her recovery either way.
In cases of injury — like Peta Murgatroyd's broken ankle — DWTS typically substitutes its pros with eliminated dancers, but we're not sure how Tom Bergeron & Co. are going to handle this unique situation.
Get well soon, Kim!
