In a recent interview, she shared:

“I have one of the top cardiologists in the country who’s amazing. Anything that has to do with you heart and brain is pretty scary, but heck, I’ve been through it. I’m okay.”

We commend Miz Zolciak’s bravery during this intense time!

In case you forgot, the blonde beauty was hospitalized after suffering from a TIA upon landing in ATL after her last performance on the hit dance competition. Due to the mother of six’s hospitalization, doctors were able to detect that she had a small hole in her heart.

In fact, this specific hole caused her stroke since the opening allowed a blood clot to travel to the other side of her body. Ugh!

She explained:

“My aunt also has the same exact thing with the same exact story at the same exact age which is crazy. It was a blessing in disguise. The minor TIA revealed that I have a PFO, which is like a hole in your heart. I was born with it and it never closed. That’s what caused it, basically.”

Whoa. How scary!

It’s said that the scheduled heart surgery will correct this problem. Well that’s good to hear!

Our thoughts are with Kim and her family during this trying time!
