Kim Zolciak-Biermann doesn't mince words about her recent health scare.

"I'm lucky to be alive," she tells PEOPLE in this week's issue.

Following the mini stroke that ended her run on this season of Dancing with the Stars and her recent heart surgery to repair the hole in her heart doctors discovered as a result of her hospitalization, she's focusing on the positive, though it wasn't always that way.

"I went from being angry, like, 'Why – during something I love so much and I'm so happy doing – why the hell would this happen now?' " says the Don't Be Tardy star. "I was so sad. I absolutely loved Dancing with the Stars. It was the first time I'd worked outside of my home in nine years. Being able to leave my house for a day and dance in costumes, the makeup and hair, it was the time of my life. I was heartbroken having to give that up. I still am."
