Kim Fields Living Single

She took a starring role in the hit Fox sitcom, Living single from 1993 to 1998 as Regina “Regine” Hunter.

Kim Fields Rhoa

Throughout The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8, being a newcomer, she was constantly bombarded with accusations that she wasn’t a good fit for the series. So for this, she just left Rhoa on her own accord by failing to renew her contract. In an announcement on the Ricky Smiley radio show, She compared herself to Brett Favre leaving the New York Jets and simply said, “I’m done.” She further elaborated, “I think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? ‘Get in and get out.’ Listen to your mama.”

She also told The Ricky Smiley Morning Show that she was still grateful for the experience. “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 for the family. Overall it was a really great experience,” she said. That was back in late March 2016, right after Season 8 came to an end. So Kim won’t be back on the series this year, but she’s happy to be moving on.

Even though only a few months have passed since then, she hasn’t been missing out on any opportunities because she opted out of further seasons of RHOA. Right after she made her announcement, she competed on Dancing with the Stars Season 2. Though she didn’t win, she lasted for seven episodes, putting up a solid showing.

More recently, Atlanta’s MJAC reported that she is working on a memoir that will “be a chronicle of living, learning, and ah-ha moments of self-discovery told with humor, transparency, and refreshing honesty by an inspiring woman who found faith at age 14 and has felt God alongside her through every chapter of her life.” According to the report, the book will focus on both Kim’s personal life and her career in the entertainment industry, and while she may have gotten teased a little bit on RHOAfor her attitude about her career, her directorial experience is real, and she’s still working on that as well.

Her next film will be A Question of Faith, which began shooting in Atlanta in September 2016. She’s not directing this one, but she will be acting alongside an ensemble cast. According to Variety, the film will be “a family’s tug of war between career and family priorities. One family examined, the Danielson’s, struggles to have faith in the midst of adversity, and another, the Hernandez’s, embarks quest for forgiveness. More connected than they know, their lives intertwine in prayer.”

And finally, she is actually touring with a performance that seems kind of like a one-woman show. Overall, since leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she has been able to focus less on fitting in and more on being herself, and that seems to be working out well for her so far.

Kim Fields Facts Of Life

She played the role of Dorothy Tootie Ramsey on the sitcom The Facts of Life from 1979 to 1988. Even decades later, many still recognize her catchphrase, “We’re in troouu-ble!” When the show began production, She was so short that the producers put her on roller skates during the first season so that they could avoid difficult camera angles.

However, she later lost a role as Arnold Jackson’s girlfriend on The Facts of Life’s parent show Diff’rent Strokes because she was taller than Gary Coleman, who played Arnold. In 1984, during the run of Facts of Life, Fields released two singles on the Critique Records label: the disco.
