Kim Zolciak nearly two years ago was competing on “Dancing With the Stars” when she had a mini-stroke.

Her daughter Brielle had a note about identifying symptoms of stroke so Zolciak posted it on Instagram:

Thank you @briellebiermann for sending me this! I wanted to share it with you! As you know I had a stroke in Sept 2015 and when Brielle called Kroy to tell him something wasn't "right" with me I remember him yelling, "Brielle get her in the car NOW and take her to the hospital fast every minute count!" It's TRUE! And Im so thankful for everyone's quick thinking. I've never seen doctors/nurses move as fast as they did the second I was wheeled in. I'm so thankful for my medical team. I have almost fully recovered (sometimes my tongue slips when I speak, and sometimes I have the word on the tip of my tongue but it just doesnt come out) but I feel great!! I had my stroke at 37!! It can happen to anyone at any age!! When in doubt please always check it out!! 💋

“As you know I had a stroke in Sept 2015 and when Brielle called Kroy to tell him something wasn’t ‘right’ with me I remember him yelling, ‘Brielle get her in the car NOW and take her to the hospital fast every minute count!’ It’s TRUE!” she wrote.

The reality star said she sometimes has trouble remembering a word or has a slip of the tongue, which may be a consequence of the stroke. But she said she is “almost fully recovered” and feels “great.”

Zolciak, who stars in the reality show “Tardy for the Party” with her family, is returning to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 10 on a recurring basis.

LAS VEGAS, NV – JUNE 27: Actress NeNe Leakes (R) and her husband Gregg Leakes attend a perforamnce of ‘ZUMANITY, The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil’ at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino on June 27, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Isaac Brekken/Getty Images for Cirque du Soleil)

NeNe Leakes’ husband Gregg had a health scare last weekend that landed him in the hospital, according to her Instagram page.

She didn’t specify what the problem was but said he was okay.

There was a minor to-do in the comments section when a hospital worker asked NeNe for a photo and was rebuffed. The employee later said she had no idea why NeNe was there but saw all the cameras and didn’t feel it was right to ask.

Forthcoming “Celebrity Family Feud” appearance: Kandi Burruss, her husband Todd Tucker, her two aunts and her mother will be playing for her Kandi Cares charity and face off against Cynthia Bailey and Bailey’s mother, sister, daughter and niece, who’ll be playing for Toys for Tots. This episode will air in September.

Sheree Whitfield hosted some sort of 70s-themed party over the weekend at her home that presumably was caught by “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cameras.
