Kim Zolciak-Biermann Explains Scar on Her Neck: ‘Had a Couple Herniated Discs Fixed’

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' alum shared a snap of her scar on her Instagram Story Monday

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is opening up about her recent surgery.

After sharing a snap of herself sporting a scar on her neck, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, 45, told her fans about her surgery during a Q&A on her Instagram Story, Monday.

Earlier in the day, the former Bravo star posted a picture of herself pouting and turning her head to the side to reveal a large scar on her neck. “Scar looks amazing,” she captioned the car shot.

Zolciak-Biermann then participated in a Q&A with her 3.4 million followers as she attempted to pass the time while stuck on the runway during a delayed flight with her eldest daughter Brielle Biermann, 26.

“What happened to your neck,” asked one fan, to which Zolciack-Biermann replied, “Had a couple herniated disc fixed by some screws and plates 😝😝.”

One follower also asked Zolciak-Biermann where she and Brielle were heading — a question the mom of six simply answered by teasing, “Werk.”

Zolciack-Biermann has had a number of health issues in the past. In 2015, while flying back from Los Angeles amid filming Dancing with the Stars, she suffered a stroke caused by a blood cot. Surgery followed later that year to repair a hole doctors found in her heart.

Health aside, the reality TV star hasn’t had the easiest time in her personal life as of late. According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, her husband Kroy Biermann filed for divorce for a second time last week.

In the papers, Biermann, 37, stated once that his marriage to Zolciak-Biermann was “irretrievably broken."

Biermann and Zolciak-Biermann both first filled for divorce in May after 12 years of marriage, Zolciack-Biermann calling their marriage at the time "irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.” But in July, the pair decided not to split in an attempt to reconcile.

The Don't Be Tardy alums, who tied the knot in 2011, share four children together: 9-year-old twins Kaia Rose and Kane Ren, and sons Kash Kade, 11, and Kroy Jagger, 12. Former NFL star Biermann also legally adopted Zolciak's daughters Brielle and Ariana, 21, in 2013.
