Auteur Watch - Kim Fields

Hey, it's Tootie from "The Facts of Life"!  You might also know her as Roseanne from "For Better or for Worse," not based on Lynn Johnston's comic strip of the same name.  These days she kinda splits her time between acting and directing... okay, maybe about a 30/70 split.  Dang, but she directs a lot.  Well, producers like her because she gets things done fast, or on time and under budget rather, just like Donald Trump!  And she was indeed a good get for Tyler Perry, as he had her work on both "Meet the Browns" and "House of Payne."  Of course, Tyler's busy with so many projects.  I'll bet he doesn't even show up at the cast reunions anymore.  Probably doesn't even send over a tape of himself, saying "Congratulations on completing another season of [FILL IN THE BLANK].  TBS has announced that we're returning next year for another season of [FILL IN THE BLANK] and..."  Always remember: hold up a card over your mouth for the titles, just like the animated characters do on the Oscars... or do they anymore?  I think they spend the extra $50,000 now and have the characters lip sync every title, and of course only show the winning clip.  The point being........
