Get ready for the tears, tantrums, and tussles when The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns: For its eighth season, The Facts of Life‘s Kim Fields will be joining the cast, promising new drama for the reality series. 

In the first trailer for the upcoming season below, Fields appears alongside the rest of the show’s stars, including Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burress, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Sheree Whitfield, and Porsha Williams. (Former RHOA mainstay NeNe Leakes departed the show last year.) She won’t be the only one stirring up drama — with Burress pregnant and Whitfield and Moore becoming enemies, there will be no shortage of OMG-worthy moments on the show this year.
