On the season premiere of the ABC’s reality competition show, Kim Zolciak bombed on Dancing With the Stars, earning truly terrible scores.

It was so bad that she even considered leaving the show, but she bounced back and survived not one but two elimination episodes this week.

Unfortunately, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star might have to leave the show anyway, and not of her own volition or America’s.

Multiple sources report that Kim has had a serious health scare.

After flying home from Dancing With the Stars on Wednesday, the mother of six suffered a transient ischemic attack (a.k.a. a mini stroke).

Kim revealed the news of her scary condition with … a selfie.

She captioned the pic, “The last 24hrs have been whirlwind!"

"I landed yesterday morning from LAX (took the red eye right after DWTS) I got home and within minutes suffered a TIA (mini stroke).”

The stroke was severe enough to cause numbness and a loss of speech.

Kim added that when the frigthening episode took place, “the left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone.”

The 37-year-old also thanked her husband, NFL star Kroy Biermann, and her oldest daughter Brielle for their “quick reactions.”

She ended her Instagram post with a set of prayer hand emojis.

"I have 100% of my feeling back THANK GOD," Kim informed her fans. "Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today!”

Kim has struggled with her routines, as we said earlier, on Dancing With the Stars. Monday night’s show, she told host Erin Andrews:

"I still have a heart even though I’m, like, bad. I still have a heart.”

Let’s hope she keeps that positive attitude as she recovers, and can return to the ballroom for next Monday’s show. Get well soon, Kim!
