RHOA notes: Kim Zolciak on her 2015 stroke, Gregg Leakes health scare, Kandi & Cynthia on 'Celebrity Family Feud'

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:

“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.


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.
