Kim Zolciak posts glamorous hospital-bed selfie, says she's on the mend

Kim Zolciak, who was was forced to withdraw from “Dancing With the Stars” after doctors banned her from flying following a mini stroke she suffered, is on the mend and invites fans to check out her new initiative, the "Ask, Believe, Receive" tour event. (Details below).

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum now appearing in a spinoff "Don't Be Tardy," posted a radiant post-operative selfie with the happy news that she's doing well.

Best wishes for continued recovery, Mrs. Biermann!

As my vacationing colleague Rodney Ho previously reported, Zolciak performed three dances over three episodes the first two weeks of DWTS. After a slow-motion salsa that scored a mere 12 points from the judges, she recovered with quickstep that drew a 19 and a foxtrot that brought in an 18. She said she felt more comfortable dancing with Dovolani and improved accordingly.

But the mini-stroke, which was caused by a blood clot, led to her premature departure from the show. She was at Northside Hospital for three days.

Up next is her "Ask, Believe, Receive" tour. If you want to attend, register here.
