Why Kim Fields Finally Said Yes to Joining Real Housewives of Atlanta

Kim Fields’ First Reaction to Learning The Real Housewives of Atlanta Wanted Her Is Great.

Yes, Bravo is carting out the eighth season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Sunday with a “super-sized” 75-minute version. The newest Atlanta Housewife Kim Fields should be familiar to audiences thanks to her work on classic sitcoms like The Facts of Life and Living Single. And joining the new Real Housewife is Fields’ husband, Christopher Morgan, who is also a performer and has been in films like Romance and Cigarettes in addition to spending some time on Broadway.

Real Husbands of Atlanta are expected to fully participate in the season’s activities, and while Morgan doesn’t seem like he’s going to be as dramatic as some of the other RHOA husbands over the years, I’m hoping that he rises to the challenge of the season and provides some exciting moments. While a juicy trailer for Season 8 has been released and we got a sneak peek at this year’s signature taglines, the anticipation of seeing all those mansions, cocktail-throwing, and lavish lifestyles is almost too much to handle. They weren’t trying to change her or have some sort of “reality manufactured version of Kim,” she said. “They wanted who Kim is in this environment, and that was interesting to me.” Kim decided to play in the RHOA playground while maintaining her other gigs.

Kim has been open to having her family on reality TV for years, but says she never got the right opportunity in an interview with Huffington Post. “I’ve been asked for years to do a reality show. She is headed to Broadway to play Matron Mama Morton in Broadway’s “Chicago” from Nov. 23-Dec. 20, she has guest-hosted “The Real” and she appears on HSN to sell pieces from her fashion line: From formidable fashions, to expensive nights in the club, to impressive real estate, to fancy cocktails (both thrown and imbibed), the RHOA ladies bring drama and fun to our screens, but at what cost? But RHOA is kind of all about the family unit — both Phaedra and Kim (and now Kandi) have documented their pregnancies on the show, NeNe, Cynthia, and Kandi got married onscreen, and Porsha showed her divorce.

The site also notes that Parks was a legal analyst for Fox News and NBC, and had some big name clients like Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, and Ludacris, surely adding to her earnings. The best thing about Kandi & Todd’s new marriage is that when all is going smoothly between them, they try to support one another’s careers the same way Christopher and Kim do. She tells Kandi to slow down because of fibroids and the fact she is 39. (My colleague Jenn Brett has an update on Kandi’s pending baby’s gender.) Bounce back. After getting pushed down to a recurring role last year, she has secured herself a full-time job (“Dish Nation” with Rickey Smiley) and a younger boyfriend Duke Williams to boot (24), a safety for the Buffalo Bills. Her previous husband Kordell Stewart was also a football player so she is clearly into this type. “Now I’m living in my truth and without apologies,” she said.

Peter was defensive with Cynthia, saying the video was not a big deal, that nothing was going on. “Your hand braised over her breast,” she said. “It looks inappropriate.” He said it wasn’t how it looked. But they have other issues since he spends so much time in Charlotte overseeing a sports bar there. “There’s no real communication,” Cynthia said. Kenya quickly throws shade at her in this episode, wondering as neighbors whether she might come by to ask for coffee or “money for the light bill.” Ouch!

Phaedra Parks, now nearly a year since her husband Apollo Nida was imprisoned, still feels Kandi didn’t support her as much as she could have over the ordeal. And now there are some unresolved money issues, too, regarding Kandi’s husband Todd Tucker helping Phaedra out with a workout video two years earlier but not getting paid.
