After revealing on Friday (September 25) that she was undergoing a procedure after being hospitalized earlier this week, Kim Zolciak-Biermann is getting lots of love and support from her Dancing with the Stars partner, Tony Dovolani. The Don't Be Tardy mom entered a hospital on Wednesday (September 23) after suffering from transient ischemic attack (a mini-stroke) and Tony has since been by her side. "He even brings me my favorite coffee," Kim shared in an Instagram she posted on Thursday (September 24). "Although he is always dancing around the room lol he keeps me smiling! So blessed to be surrounded by such great people."

Tony had equally kind words for his dance partner. “After spending only a few weeks with Kim, it is evident of how much of a fighter she is," he told The Daily Dish in a statement. "Her humor and positivity are still shining through, and it’s amazing to see the love and support of her family. We are hoping for a speedy recovery.” No further update on her condition or how her health scare will affect her time on DWTS was provided as of press time. However on Friday afternoon, Kim responded to a Tweet from fellow DWTS competitor Gary Busey.

She also received support from Real Housewives of Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson.

A new episode of Don't Be Tardy airs this Sunday, September 27 at 10/9c. Watch a preview, below.
