Not so fast, Perezcious readers.
The Don’t Be Tardy star was booted from the dancing competition after she was forced to miss an episode since her doctor hadn’t cleared her to fly from Atlanta to LA.
That was because she had recently suffered a scary mini-stroke and her health had to come first.
So, the blonde beauty decided to pitch the idea that she could be a contestant next season instead. But, sadly, the execs still said no. She explained:
“I asked about that. I think was more heartbroken when I asked that question on Sunday, the day before the actual performance, well I can just come back another season, they said you can’t because you’ve already learned the dances.”
What a bummer!
The 37-year-old admitted that she was hoping the producers would cut her some slack, saying:
“I feel like you should have made some kind of adjustment because you’ve done it for other people in the past.”
Although she agrees with the rules, Kim is devastated she won’t be able to compete alongside partner Tony Dovolani, saying:
“I’m not going to risk my life for anything, but it still doesn’t make it any easier because I really loved the show. I love everybody on the show. I love everything about it. I didn’t think I was going to love it. I think that’s maybe why it’s been so hard for me. They’ve asked me a number of times to do the show, and I always declined, and then I just really fell in love with it.”
But the good news is she’s not finished just yet! The reality TV star confirmed that she will definitely return for this season’s final episode, adding:
“I’ll be back for the finale, which is so exciting. Nobody’s told me what I’m doing. I gave them kind of a suggestion. I just love everybody on the show, I love the whole network, so hopefully they’ll go with what I suggest!”
Well, even though that wasn’t the ideal outcome for the RHOA alum, at least she gets to go back, even if it’s only temporary!
