Each week Bravo has been doing mini-interviews with the RHOA ladies instead of blogs. Kim Fields has been interviewed every week, helping us to get to know this newbie better. While Kim’s fear of girls trips is a bit troubling, there’s something sweet about her and I’m glad she joined the show. Not only is she new to time away from her family, she’s been thrown into a group of VERY tough women. As Nene Leakes pointed out, there are a lot of single girls in this group, and they were ready to P-A-R-T-Y in Miami! Kim sat down with Bravotv.com this week to dish on all of the first hand details of her first girls trip, plus reveals why she chose Phaedra as her BFF early on in the season.
Bravotv.com: Why did you settle on sleeping in the living room rather than a bedroom?
Kim Fields: Oh, I didn’t “settle”! The bedrooms with water views got snagged; when I discovered the living room and it had everything I needed (especially water views), I was good! That joint had two other fab living rooms, no one saw or missed mine!
I thought this was so strange; she was unpacking all of her clothes in the middle of this room. They should have clarified if there were any bedrooms left when she made this decision or what. To what I understood there were still bedrooms left, which makes the whole thing strange. At least she got her water views!
Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to call out the distinction between information and instigation?
KF: I’m not a “call out” type of woman. It was an observation of the way things were going down at dinner.
I thought Kim made a great point! Phaedra and Kandi both seemed to be laughing inside. Welcome to a world with Kenya Moore!
Bravotv.com: What lead to your breakdown with Phaedra?
KF: Honestly that was so not me. And again with the friggin’ emotion! What the what? Listen, that waterfront spot was the jump off for a grown and sexy good time and I was feeling it, I just wanted to really enjoy it with my husband. It’s truly that simple for me. There came a point in my life when I didn’t think I would be blessed with a husband (and children). It wasn’t about missing my family or the kids. I wanted to be with my man, period. While I’m not crazy about shedding a few tears over it, I am grateful for the lesson I got out of it, working through it with Phaedra, and getting to the other side of it. Watch what happens the next time I’m in a grown and sexy waterfront joint and I’m solo…LOL
I was really glad Kim chose Phaedra to lean on this season. I think she made the right decision; Phaedra can be empathetic, at least when it comes to Kim missing her children since they both have two young boys. Luckily, Kim did realize that Phaedra has a lot going on and to be a friend you must give and take; so she knew to check on how Phaedra is doing also. I hope Kim is able to let loose and focus more on herself as the season goes on, it’s still early!
What do you think of Kim so far on The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Did you think Kim’s comment at dinner was a dig at Kenya? Do you think Phaedra was a good choice for Kim to lean on?
