So what’s going on with Kim Zolciak and ‘Dancing with the Stars’? Last we heard, she had started a petition for the producers to give her and dancing partner Tony Dovolani another chance that garnered over 20K signatures. However, the dancing competition is pressing on without the duo. So is Kim going to get another chance?
Kim said she IS returning to ‘Dancing with the Stars’… but not as a contestant.
I’ll be back for the finale, which is so exciting. Nobody’s told me what I’m doing. I gave them kind of a suggestion. I just love everybody on the show, I love the whole network, so hopefully they’ll go with what I suggest!”
The competition is going on without Kim, so clearly she isn’t coming back this season. However, maybe she and Tony can get another chance next season?
Unfortunately, that doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen, either.
I asked about that. I think was more heartbroken when I asked that question on Sunday, the day before the actual performance, well I can just come back another season, they said you can’t because you’ve already learned the dances.”
Good grief: couldn’t she just have to do different dances? I mean, really, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ seems to be on thin ice as it is, given that they did make an exception for Melissa Rycroft in season 15 but just don’t seem to be willing to do it for Kim. I agree that the rules are the rules, but if they aren’t enforced equally, then what’s the point? As Kim pointed out:
I feel like you should have made some kind of adjustment because you’ve done it for other people in the past [like with Melissa Rycroft]. They made the exception for her.”
Kim’s got a point there!
Despite this disappointing turn of events, Kim said she still loved her time on ‘DWTS.’
I’m not going to risk my life for anything, but it still doesn’t make it any easier because I really loved the show. I love everybody on the show. I love everything about it. I didn’t think I was going to love it. I think that’s maybe why it’s been so hard for me. They’ve asked me a number of times to do the show, and I always declined, and then I just really fell in love with it.”
At least she’ll be there for the season finale! You can watch more of Kim’s interview at E! Online.
