Kim Fields wasn't going to let anything keep her down this week on Dancing with the Stars.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

After feeling a strain above her ankles, The Real Housewives of Atlanta rookie and her dance partner Sasha Farber headed to a doctor and found out Kim was suffering from a stress fracture that would sideline her from rehearsals for Week 6. But, Kim wouldn't let anything stop her from dancing on Monday night. Before taking the stage, she vowed that she would bring her all to the show. "People are realizing, 'Oh no, she's one to watch,'" Kim said.

Kim and Sasha ended up performing a jive inspired by the film version of the musical Hairspray, which earned them a score of 24 from the judges.

Perhaps she had the spirit of the Purple One on her side during her impressive routine. Kim covertly paid tribute to Prince, who died on April 21, by painting her nails his signature color. "My lil tribute this eve on #dwts to the One & Only #Prince," she wrote on Instagram.

As it turns out, Kim will dance another week. Former football player Doug Flutie and his pro partner Karina Smirnoff were eliminated from the show on April 25. Following the episode, Kim thanked her fans for their support.

With Kim prepping for another week on DWTS, you have some time to check out these throwback photos of her, below.
