Was it just me or did Kim Fields seem to be trying to earn her peach on the first part of the RHOA Reunion? Well, she sure fooled me. She does something that is rarely done on the housewives franchises. She quit the show. I would not believe it if I didn’t know that pickup letters have not yet gone out for the RHOA. She really did quit.
Yesterday on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Kim said she was done with the show.
“I mean, and think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? “Get in and Get out”… listen to your mama! It was for the experience, it was to be able to do a genre that I’d been asked to do before and finding a way to do it that makes sense for my team and I and the family. Overall it was a really great experience.”
I think when Andy polled the women on camera about whether or not Kim was a good fit for the show, it was all downhill from there. I mean have you ever gone to work where a bunch of people didn’t want you there? Even if just your boss doesn’t like you, it’s a miserable experience going in to the office every day. You need to be comfortable around the people you work with and they just weren’t feeling Kim.
I’ve also heard from a source today that Kim really was a diva on the set. I had heard this rumor before, but I didn’t really believe it. She likes to brag about how professional she is. I suppose I should have known that if you have to brag about a certain characteristic, then it’s probably an area of weakness. Professionalism is like etiquette for the workplace. It’s kind of unprofessional to tout your own professionalism.
I also got more insight into why none of the women were not very fond of Kim. We saw several times Kim leaving trips and baby showers and other events early. She would have to be home in time to tuck in her kids and help them with their homework. I thought that was kind of cute myself. But it seems the cast and crew took it as “leaving work early.” She signed up to film a TV show and coming and going as you please seems to only be acceptable if you are Bethenny Frankel.
So I guess the ladies won’t have Tootie to kick around anymore, as she is taking her skates and going home.
Will you miss Kim?
