Kim Zolciak heart surgeryIt's been a wild few weeks for this reality star. After appearing on Dancing with the Stars and suffering a mini-stroke, Kim Zolciak says she's prepping to undergo heart surgery but feels great. 


While most people would be freaking out about this prospect, the mom of six and star of Don't Be Tardy has the procedure already scheduled and seems to handling it like a champ! She explained to E! News:

I have one of the top cardiologists in the country who's amazing. Anything that has to do with you heart and brain is pretty scary, but heck, I've been through it. I'm okay.

Pretty brave, huh? So just what will this surgery do exactly? It'll close the hole in her heart that she was born with, the reality star explained. Interestingly, she says her aunt suffered from the identical condition -- at the same age! If anything, it has to make her feel better to know someone who's been through the exact same thing.
