“The Facts of Life” alum Kim Fields has joined the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and her presence is already causing a stir.

The actress, who found fame as a child star on the hit sitcom as Tootie Ramsey, is helping to fill the massive void on the Bravo reality series in the wake of NeNe Leakes’ recent departure.

“This is Hollywood royalty, everybody knows Tootie,” Fields is told by the other women as she sashays onto the show in the first teaser for Season 8.

Fields is joined by another familiar face, Sheree Whitfield, who is returning to renew her rift with cast member Kenya Moore.

Other dramatic developments include Kandi Burruss sharing the big news that she’s pregnant, Cynthia Bailey‘s marriage crisis, Phaedra Parks struggling as a single mother while husband Apollo is behind bars, and Kenya attempting to date while building the dream home that she has dubbed “Moore Manor.”

Former Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Hawks Cheerleader Shamea Morton will also be joining the women for Season 8, which premieres Sunday, November 8 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
