ATLANTA- A stroke may have saved “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak Biermann’s life.

Biermann suffered a mini stroke, or transient ischemic attack, after appearing on “Dancing with the Stars” Wednesday night. She said the left side of her body left numb and she lost the ability to speak. Since then, her feeling has returned.

According to TMZ, doctors also discovered Biermann has a serious heart issue. If she didn’t receive treatment for the stroke, she would not have know about this life-threatening problem.

TMZ did not report on the exact name of the heart condition.

It is unlikely Biermann will perform on “Dancing with the Stars” Monday night.
