Just yesterday, we mused on what we’d like to see in the upcoming eighth season of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ Fast forward 24 hours and it appears our wish for fresh faces has come to fruition.
A slew of sources are confirming that actress Kim Fields has officially joined the cast of the hit Bravo reality series.
Both the network and Fields have remained notable in their silence, however this is often common-practice with previous recruits; indeed, producers routinely “test” the “talent” to determine whether they become a full-fledge “Housewife” or a supporting “Friend Of” – roles Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney took on respectively last season. Neither have been invited back.
For those who don’t yet know the newest name set to join Nene and co, Fields rose to prominence playing Regine Hunter on hit sitcom ‘Living Single.’ She currently lives in Atlanta with her husband, Christopher Morgan, and their two sons.
After clearly missing the mark with Claudia and Demetria, it’s great to see producers secure a name that is relatively known and a name that has claim to the ethos of the show.
It’ll be interesting to see how she mixes and meshes with
her cast-mates the group.
