Kim Fields: I’m ‘Done’ With ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’

One and done! Kim Fields announced that she will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta for another season during a chat with the hosts of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show on Monday, March 21. The Facts of Life actress, 46, joined the cast in 2015 for season 8 of the hit reality show.

“It feels more like Brett Favre and the Jets, you know  I'm done,” Fields said, referencing the quarterback’s single season with the NFL team. "I think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? ‘Get in and get out.’ Listen to your mama.”

Though she won’t be back, the TV director said she’s thankful for her time on Housewives. "It was for the experience,” she told the radio show. "It was to be able to do a genre that I’d been asked to do before and finding a way to do it that made sense for my team and and for the family. Overall it was a really great experience."

Fields also discussed her ongoing feud with Kenya Moore, who bashed her success in an episode earlier this year. “I don’t think we can really always judge how people feel about their own successes,” the Living Single actress said. "Just enjoy what you got!”

This week, Fields kicked off her stint on season 22 of Dancing With the Stars. The reality star received mostly positive reviews for her cha-cha with partner Sasha Farber.
