“Dancing With The Stars” went for the lamest attempt at drama on Monday night’s episode.
After Tuesday night’s show last week, contestant Kim Zolciak was hospitalized after a blood clot and mini-stroke left her numb on her left side. She was not cleared to fly back for the episode last night.
So, her partner, Tony Dovalani danced with a professional dancer. They did the dance that he was going to do with Kim, but rather than receiving scores and critique, Tom Bergeron announced that Kim Zolciak was Skyping in from her home in Atlanta.
After making some small talk with the reality TV star about her health, Tom Bergeron dropped the bomb that due to the rules previously outlined, any star who cannot perform due to health or injury would be automatically disqualified. Kim Zolciak was obviously stunned, and argumentative. After all, it wasn’t that she wasn’t cleared to dance, the problem was that she wasn’t cleared to travel to do the show.
In any case, Kim Zolciak is out, and the attempt at drama made for a very awkward segment of the show. But we haven’t heard the last from her.
