Nobody ever expected Kim Fields to be the new NeNe Leakes, but after just a handful of RHOA episodes, it’s already obvious that she’s failed to fill the giant shoes left by one of the Bravo franchise’s most iconic gals. Not only is Fields a bad replacement for Leakes, she’s completely wrong for the show.
When Fields first joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she seemed like the perfect person to mix things up a bit. Fans assumed that she would balance out a group of ladies that are incredibly prone to drama. But instead of bringing a refreshing new sense of perspective to the show, Fields has decided to whine endlessly about how awful it is to spend time with other women in Miami.
The vast majority of the Atlanta Housewives are annoyed with Fields at the moment, but none more than Kenya Moore, who believes that Fields owes her a little gratitude. Moore feels that she “brought [Fields] to the group,” so she hates the idea of the new cast member throwing shade at her benefactor. To be fair, Fields’ critique was nothing new; she called out Moore for instigating instead of investigating. It’s common knowledge that Moore is RHOA‘s chief pot stirrer, and now, Fields has finally acknowledged what everybody else has known for a long, long time.
The brief skirmish between Fields and Moore was annoying, but more fans were in agreement with Porsha Williams’ critique. Williams doesn’t take issue with Fields trashing Moore, but she is sick of hearing her complain about spending time with the Housewives. Williams admitted, “This little homesick routine is wearing me out.”
The Housewives are clearly not fond of Fields — and they’re not alone in their disdain. During tonight’s episode of RHOA, several fans spoke ill of Fields. Like Williams, these haters were most annoyed by Fields’ whining. It’s natural to miss the family while away from home, but there are far worse things than spending a little time in Miami while earning a nice paycheck from Bravo.
All in all, fans of RHOA are very disappointed by Fields thus far. She was supposed to be a breath of fresh air, but according to disgruntled viewers, she’s just as annoying as the other Housewives, if not worse. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to spend time with the family, but in the future, it might be better for family-oriented gals like Fields to avoid shows that involve extensive travel and lots of bickering with drama-prone women.
