Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Fields


Bless you, Tootie.

We've been pretty high on Kim Fields since she made her debut on The Real Housewives of Atlanta earlier this season, but on tonight's episode, in the aftermath of the Great Boat Fight of 2015, she firmly cemented her spot at the top of our faves list by saying everything we were thinking, right after we thought it.

Seriously, we're not sure that Kim's cut out for the Housewives life (which is so not a bad thing), but we're so glad she's here for now.

So, just how good was Ms. Facts of Life tonight? Let us count the ways.

1. Immediately after watching Cynthia Bailey kick Porsha Williams in the stomach as her verbal sparring partner lunged at her, Kim broke down into tears, lamenting the fact that it always "has to go there." We're right there with you, Kim.

2. Still on the boat, talking about how this wasn't the day she signed up for: "I'll take my kids and I'll take my book." Which prompted even the infamous Housewife fight champ Sheree Whitfield to quip, "You got another book?"

3. While recounting the drama to new bestie Phaedra Parks (who had enough sense to stay from Lake Lanier, what with all the "weird death stuff in that water"): "After a while, it was like seeing kids argue."

4. Reacting to Phaedra's analysis of Porsha's wounds: "This is being treated and analyzed like it's the JFK assassination."

5. After she and Kandi Burruss are the first to arrive, and made to wait for some time, at Kenya Moore's unity brunch organized to help Porsha and Cynthia reconcile: "I ain't gonna be around this group too much longer if they can't just be on time. Come on now, we ain't just gonna be hours late like we got nothing to do."

6. In the previews for next week's episode, in tears after a trip to Miami goes very bad, very quickly: "I want to go home. I don't get all of this."

She may not get it, but we certainly get her.

What do you think about Kim on RHOA? Is the voice of reason these ladies desperately need or is she too far out of her element? Sound off in the comments below.
