Now that Kim Fields has officially been inducted into the shade-throwing world of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, there's one lady that the newbie relates to the most: fellow working mom, Phaedra Parks. While the two women don't face all the same challenges as parents (Phaedra is estranged from her husband Apollo Nida, while Kim is married), Kim explained to The Daily Dish that at their core they are each trying to raise their sons in a complicated world.
"Because we are both moms of very young children, boys, we're committed to what our responsibility is as moms," she said, in the clip above. "And also, as African-American moms with African-American boys — that's very real in our climate right now, in our culture right now. And so [we're committed to] how we are nurturing them and working with them, and growing them as princes and growing them as global citizens already."
Kim went on to describe her take on her other cast members, revealing that Cynthia provides her with "chic inspiration" and Kandi gave Kim and her husband Chris a Kandi Koated "care package" that's, ahem, been put to good use. -Reporting by Andrew Herrmann
