According to insiders, if Zolciak can’t rejoin the show then she is hoping her daughter, Brielle Biermann, can take her place.
“If Kim can’t stay in the picture, then why not replace one Zolciak with another,” a source told Hollywood Life. “It would make Kim and her fans happy and pull in ratings. Plus, Brielle is gorgeous and would be a shoo-in for the show! Imagine if she won?”
Brielle even suggested on Twitter that she could take her mom’s place. “@DancingABC let’s just throw a wig on me until Kim can fly… no one will ever know the difference!!”
Zolciak was unfortunately disqualified from the show after she suffered from a ministroke last week that prevented her from traveling and performing.
Her pro partner, Tony Dovolani, is also extremely disappointed about the disqualification and hasn’t given up yet either.
“I think the producers were fighting until the last minute to keep us in the competition,” Dovolani revealed to Us Weekly. “I want to continue so bad, it’s not even funny. That’s why I put a tweet out there saying, ‘Bring us back!’ Producers want us back, I want to be back, Kim wants to be back — so the only people they needed to convince [were] the lawyers.”
Of course, Dovolani fully supports Zolciak’s decision to focus on her health and not get on a plane as a doctor recommended.
“She did the right thing. It’s her health and she’s got six kids and her husband to think about,” he said.
But since Zolciak is showing signs of improvement, Dovolani is standing by his claim that it’s time to get Zolciak back on the show.
According to People, Zolciak currently has over 19,000 signatures on a petition rallying to get her back on the show.
