There hasn’t been much interesting to report in entertainment news today. The only two Bravo blogs I’ve seen so far for RHOA have been Sheree’s and Kim’s. Sheree’s blog is a joke after she tried to write the first one herself and then hired a ghostwriter. So that leaves us with Kim’s for now.
While we are talking about Kim, I am surprised you guys are struggling to see what is real and what is storyline this season. Let me help you out. I’ve figured out why production was so excited to have Kim Fields this season. They are sadists. The one true thing that is happening on this “reality show” is that Kim is having a really hard time, and a lot of regret about signing up for this ratchet mess. She’s been thrown in with a group of women who have their roles carved out. We have the THOT(s), the religious hypocrite, the beleaguered wife with the cheating husband, the former musician trying to stay relevant, the drama queen in search of love… one bit hotbed of crazy town. Finally, they found one sane person with a name and dropped her in.
You will notice that no one is really trying befriend either of the new ladies this season. Kim is crying on a boardwalk until production sends Phaedra after her. Tammy literally jumps overboard, only to return to the boat and sit below deck alone sipping beer and hunting for tequila all alone. Meanwhile the other girls are talking about how weird they both are. It’s new girl hazing. Kim has to tolerate conversations about Tootie on roller skatesas if she had no career after that. Meanwhile, she has a happy home with a husband and two kids and misses them while stuck in the viper pit, and housewives (all of theme) are mocking her because she checks in with them frequently. And you guys think she is acting when she is crying? As someone who has stopped socializing for the most part, I can tell you that NORMAL social situations are stressful, let alone being dropped into a room/boat/house with a bunch of attention whores literally BRAWLING for attention.
Anyway, on to Kim’s Bravo Blog for this week….
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 think this was a genius move. She got the largest room and the ocean views in a part of the house they stayed out of for the most part. Unless you are Tammy who was also so lonely that she sought out other people she knew to hang out with since the women were ignoring her.
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.
Clearly, she sees what is going on. I don’t think anyone with a brain believes that Porsha and Kenya planned a trip together. Do you really think that Kenya is sincerely interested in being around the thug that dragged her by the head? Did you also believe it when Phaedra called some African King in West Africa about a trip five RHOA were taking to South Africa? Because…
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!
Translation, I was in a beautiful (yet very crowded) place with a bunch of crazy bitches who were not being welcoming while surrounded by cameras and just wished I had an ally around. I was way out of my comfort zone. I just wanted to go home. And when things get worse, I do.
Oh and P.S. I freaking LOVE Kim’s hair.
