The 46-year-old star most recently appeared on the small screen in the 2014 TV film For Better or for Worse big screen. Her last big screen role was in 2012's What to Expect When You're Expecting. Speaking of which, if it's true that Kim has officially joined the other peach-holding cast members, then we already have a few expectations about how she'll fit in with the other ladies.

Since resident twirl master Kenya Moore is determined to spin her "Gone With the Wind Fabulous" behavior into a scripted TV series, she'll likely be the first to pitch a collaborative business venture to Kim, who also has multiple directing and producing credits. Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey typically play the neutral role, so it doesn't seem likely that either of them will clash with Kim. However, when it comes to Phaedra Parks, the sorceress of side-eyes and shade, we can totally see the potential for sparks to fly between the two ladies — and not in a good way. And given the fact that NeNe Leakes revels in reciting her resume (Glee, The New Normal, Cinderella on Broadway), she might not take too kindly to sharing the spotlight with an actress whose accolades outnumber hers.
