"To me, a stroke is more important than a selfie," Wendy Williams said of Kim Zolciak-Biermann
The Dancing with the Stars contestant blasted Williams in a fiery Instagram post on Monday, calling the talk show host “absolutely appalling” for questioning the transient ischemic attack that left her hospitalized last week.
“How disgusting for you to insinuate I ‘faked’ my mini stroke on your show this morning!! You mad cause I didn’t come on your show! This clearly shows your warped mentality!!” the reality TV personality captioned a screenshot allegedly showing an offer for her to Skype in to The Wendy Williams Show.
Williams discussed Zolciak-Biermann’s condition during the Hot Topics segment of her show Monday.
“To me, a stroke is more important than a selfie. I don’t get where these people get, you know, posting pictures of a serious condition in the hospital,” said Williams, 51, referring to Zolciak documenting her ordeal on social media with photos from her hospital bed.
“But she allegedly suffered a mini-stroke after returning home from Dancing with the Stars last week. Now Kim is 37 years old and, you know, she’s got six children. She looks terrific, you know, and by the way, the reality show it cute but, Kim, my thought is, um, I hope you’re not fibbing about the stroke,” she continued, adding that she also “wanted to get off” the series while competing with Tony Dovolani, Zolciak-Biermann’s current partner, in 2011.
“Kim, at 37 years old, if you did have a mini stroke, I’m sorry to hear about that. If, however, you just wanted to get off Dancing with the Stars, all you had to do was just stub your toe,” she finished, as the audience applauded. “I don’t like talking about friends of the show if it’s in a shady way, but I’m in the purple chair, so it makes me do things.”
Zolciak-Biermann has been getting low scores so far from the judges and cried on camera last week after being frustrated with her performances.
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, though it’s unclear if Zolciak-Biermann will participate.
