Kim Zolciak not only suffered a mini stroke this week, but would have died of a serious heart condition, it has been reported.
As ENTmania! previously reported, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and current Dancing With the Stars contestant was hospitalized on Wednesday after suffering a TIA post-show, temporarily losing all sensation in her left side and her ability to speak. She had said that doctors planned to release her on Thursday after her feelings and speech returned, but as is the hospital custom, she must first of all undergo a series of precautionary tests.
Now according to TMZ, one of those tests revealed that Zolciak had an undisclosed, asymptomatic heart issue that could have killed her instantly at any time without warning. To correct the problem, doctors carried out an undisclosed procedure on Friday.
TMZ sources say Zolciak was completely unaware that she had a serious heart problem and would never had known had it been she was not hospitalized for the TIA.
Zolciak is supposed to reappear at Dancing With the Stars on Monday, but with this recent development, that seems unlikely.
