Kim Zolciak’s stroke and subsequent hospitalization may have saved her life.
It was revealed shortly after, that while hospitalized doctors discovered Kim suffers from a pre-existing condition. Now we know that she was born with a PFO, which is basically a little hole in her heart.
‘It was a blessing in disguise. The minor TIA revealed that I have a PFO, which is like a hole in your heart,’ she told Michael Strahan on Good Morning America.
‘I was born with it and it never closed,’ Kim explained. ‘That’s what caused it basically.’
Kim also addressed accusations that she lied about the whole ordeal just to get out of her sting with Dancing With the Stars:
‘I think it’s sick that somebody would ever think that and some of the people that have said that, it just shows me their mentality.’
As always, we wish Kim the best and we’re glad she’s on the road back to good health. We’re looking forward to seeing her hit the dance floor one last time during the DWTS finale in a few weeks!
