Kim Fields is on Wendy Williams today! I’ve notice that Wendy has started to mention the housewives shows again. She totally had to get in on the reunion and tried to comment about Brooks and the fake cancer story after reunion part three. Of course she had no idea what she was talking about. I don’t mean about whether or not he had cancer, She admitted she wasn’t watching the season and she then went on to try to say what she was told to say but got it totally messes up. Anyway, the fact that she talked about a housewives show at all was shocking because she stopped talking about them at all after THIS FEUD between Andy, Bethenny and her falling out with Nene and her banishment of Brandi Glanville from her premises . Oh and her trash talking Kim Biermann during her heart problems. So something has occurred to change her mind because suddenly she is all fine with interviewing a housewife. Maybe Tootie is the only one she will be having on. We’ll see.
Anyway, it’s always fun to see interviews with a brand new housewife. Often they give away information even when they are trying not to. While I am waiting, I am going to be the sole defender of Kim’s hair. I love it! What is wrong with you people? I saw your beloved sneak in today and her ONE comment was to mock Kim’s hair! With TeeCee hating on it, I’ll never have anyone on my side, you bunch of twatwaffles! Moving on…
First, she plays most of the RHOA trailer and it is even more ratchet on the big screen, honey. It ends with Porsha talking about wanting sperm “up inside of her.” The audience moans and Wendy shakes her head.
Kim comes out looking drop dead gorgeous. She’s in a full length black dress that says “blessed” down the right side in big sequined letters. Ya’ll are going to hate her hair because he wig is the biggest blond quasi afro you have ever laid eyes on. I think it is spectacular. Wendy says WOW! several times.
Kim wants to start the discussion right away to thank Wendy for trying to talk her out of doing housewives. She says Wendy was so protective and loving toward her. But she did it anyway. She says she received it as a big sister looking out for her. Apparently, there was some issue with how someone else received it (Andy? the Public?) and she says the only thing that matters is how she received it because it was for her. Apparently, they are talking about Wendy saying in hot topics when she was being considered that she was too good for the housewives. I think that is a fairly popular sentiment for a lot of people. But, Kim supposedly has some money problems (which they don’t mention) and girlfriend needed a paycheck.
Wendy’s first question, ” You carry yourself in such a way, why would you want to swim in the gutter?” (Groans from the audience) Kim says, ” No, no, you know at the same time it’s the biggest platform.” She says that she has been asked to do reality TV for years and either the platform wasn’t right or the timing wasn’t right. She’s really trying to sell RHOA as a great platform. A platform is something you use to deliver a message. These people say ‘platform’ and mean “marketing opportunity.” It seems that this periscope may have been a rehearsal for her to get her answers together. She’s using her whole dip a toe in the ocean thing here. So far nothing has been said that is off the cuff.
Kim talks about not having a social circle. She wanted to work with an ensemble again. Girlfriend, you picked one crazy ass social circle to use to improve your social skills. She says she has friends. Because, Wendy basically heard she didn’t. But this was a social adventure she wanted to try. She didn’t get the concept of getting her nails done “Just cuz” or go to brunch? for what? girlfriend trips, what? So now she is doing that stuff.
Wendy brings up that in the clip Porsha says she wasn’t even born when Kim was famous. The audience boos and she laughs and says, “You guys are so funny.” Side note, she is totally Tootie right now. Not the woman we see in clips. Wendy asks Kim how she is dealing with the cattiness? Kim says she thinks part of it is that she thinks the ladies are just so used to being that way on the show. She says she really has to applaud Bravo and Andy and True Entertainment for throwing something different in the mix. (That would be her.) She says she doesn’t take it as shade, if Porsha wasn’t born then, then she’s right. Oh honey you better learn to recognize shade or you are in for a world of hurt. She says in the same breath she said that Ragine is her favorite.
Speaking of shade, Wendy says in that clip were you at Chateau Sheree? Kim says no she has not been to any of the Chateaus or the Manors or any of that. Audience dies laughing. Also, Kim didn’t see the clip so she says she was in Miami, even though they didn’t show that part. Kim says she has been to Phaedra’s house, and it was lovely and they had a play date with the boys. Wendy then says that Kenya is calling Chateau Sheree “Chateau She Can’t Pay” or something like that. That’s bullshit, Wendy. I have never heard Kenya say that. Kenya is actually going to be nice to Sheree this season, much to my chagrin. Why doesn’t Wendy have to make mean shit up like that?
Wendy asks if she ever watched RHOA before she signed up? She says she certainly knew of them and knew of the show. She saw some clips, but she is a mom and her world has been inundated with kid TV since her kids were born. I’d like to take this time to point out that RHOA airs at night when children should be in bed. Why do these women always claim they never saw what they were signing up for? Kim is not that stupid. Kim didn’t know the terminology like “throwing shade.” That I could see. She said and then when she was talking they would say, “that’s shade!” and she would be like “Oh Jesus no! It’s not! I just don’t know!”
Wendy is a one note pony with this. Every question is subtly about why she is on this ratchet mess of a show. I want her to talk about filming, not defend her business choices, Wendy! So Wendy wants to know what her mother thinks about her being on RHOA. She said her first reactions was, “They called YOU?” Then she said, ” Baby if you can be liked. Be liked. Take care of my babies, take care of your man, do what you want to do.”
Sidenote: And that is the advice that has all of the housewives calling her “boring as a bowl of oatmeal” behind the scenes according to Tamaratattles sources. She refuses to get in the mud with them and they can’t stand it. And she has stuff to say about their mud rolling.
She says her mother also advised her to get in and get out. It sounds like she may be foreshadowing not coming back to RHOA for another season. Wendy picks up on this too. She tells Kim that she should only do one season. She says everyone is likeable their first season (Have you met Meghan? Or Kenya? Or Camille for that matter?) and then… she changes course to divorce and asks what her husband said about doing the show. She asks if he is a part of the show she says yes the whole family is on. Wendy says “oh no!” And she is right. But happy Tootie, I mean Kim says her sister Alexis is on the show via Facetime and Skype. Wendy says, “Something is rotten here, I’m sorry. I’m scared for you.” Kim says don’t be scared, “We are true to us! The woman that you all have helped to raise in some way by pouring into my career and my spirit, that’s the same woman that shows up. So I’m true to myself. ” She says when they try, we remain true to ourselves.
Wendy says that she read in Mrs. Garrett’s autobiography that Tootie was fat shamed on the set. And they would keep a scale on the set and the audience groans. Kim busts out laughing as she finally spots Suzanne and says, “You have a HYPE GIRL on the set!” and laughs even louder. Kim says that is no secret. She said they were called the Fats of Life all the time. Kim says she does watch Facts of Life with her kids and they laugh and say, “Look at mommy’s hair!” So, at least she will be used to it with you guys.
Wendy ends by telling Kim to watch her back! Kim says she will come back and talk more.
So to answer my first question, she has a real housewife on to make sure she knew what a mistake she was making by being on RHOA. Typical Wendy.
