Kim Zolciak Starts Petition To Get Back On Dancing With The Stars After Injury
Kim Zolciak is not taking her Dancing With the Stars elimination lightly! After being axed from the competition, the former Real Housewives star started a petition to make her return!
As of Wednesday morning, more than 19,000 fans have signed the petition to bring back Kim and partner Tony Dovolani to season 21.
She wrote: “Sign this petition to bring @tonydovolani and me back. I was cleared to dance on Friday when I was discharged from the hospital, so Saturday morning I was up rehearsing not even 12 hrs after. I had no restrictions BUT flying until today. Yes the timing sucked but ultimately my health is first. I wanted to dance here in ATL via satellite last night I can dance I just couldn't fly. I'm forever grateful for my dance partner @tonydovolani who has always supported me and All Of you my amazing fans!!!!!!!!”

While host Tom Bergeron said the rules wouldn’t allow her to compete, other stars have been allowed to return after being injured. Last season, Sasha Farber replaced Derek Hough as Nastia Liukin’s partner after he was injured.
Whether or not DWTS decides to allow her the chance to compete again, the Don’t Be Tardy star said: “Regardless I'll be dancing my ass off at the finale.”
