Kim Zolciak Rocks a Waist Trainer to Prove It Didn't Almost Kill Her (PHOTO)

Kim Zolciak, GMAJust weeks after her hospitalization for a series of mini-strokes, Kim Zolciak is on Instagram showing that nothing will stand in the way of her desire to look like a hot mama. Nothing.


Kim posted a picture of herself rocking one of her trademark wigs as well as a bright purple waist trainer. For those of us who aren't into the next generation of girdles, a waist trainer is something that celebs like Kim Zolciak, Khloe Kardashain, and that other famous Kim (you know, Kardashian) swear by to give them a flat tummy and hourglass shape.

But if you are worried that a garment that squeezes her middle had something to do with her health scare, Kim wants to make sure you know that her corset did not cause her strokes.

Good morning!!!! You guys know I love my @nowaistclique waist trainer, I have heard all sorts of ppl commenting on "what might have caused my mini stroke" let me be real clear, I am a very healthy woman who takes great care of myself, however I was born with PFO (a hole in my heart) which enabled a clot to cross over and stop oxygen to my brain for a very short time in turn causing me to have a TIA, I will be having heart surgery to repair it. By no means did my waist trainer cause my blood clot or my TIA. I would never use anything nor promote anything that I personally didn't love or something that was dangerous. I LOVE LIFE WAY TOO MUCH! � and I have a whole lotta living to do �� #KeepItTight #Hourglass #CommentRudeIBlockYou #HeartAwareness #THANKYOUFORALLYOURPRAYERS

The Don't Be Tardy star shared that her mini-stroke was actually caused by a hole in her heart and that she's treating it with medication and will correct with surgery.

Of course, I believe that her health scare wasn't wardrobe related, but I have to say that it is interesting that she doesn't address the fact that she's had a long history as a smoker and smoking is a leading cause of strokes. Just saying. I hope she's decided to lay off the cigs now that she knows about her condition.

But I digress ... Kim still plans to return to Dancing with the Stars for the season finale later this fall. And we hope Kim and her (trained) waist are ready.
