Not too long ago, Kim Fields was still a cast member on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and she brought some incredible features with her. Shockingly, the actress’ time on the show was short-lived.
If fans recall, Fields was an exemplary addition to the show, as she had an incredible personality but could never back down from a fight or get bullied into silence.
Recently, she spoke about her decision to exit the show five years ago and why she never intends to return.
The Fields & Moore Drama
No doubt, Fields’ presence on the show was appreciated by fans, but that doesn’t mean she did not face difficulties, especially with a co-star named Kenya Moore.
The pair were constantly at odds with one another, and at a point, fans could tell that they would never be friends, even if they decided to resolve their issues.
The women’s feud last throughout the season after Moore said Fields was not “authentic.” The 2016 season involved major back and forth between the women, until Fields decided to leave the show.
Fields’ Point Of View
The actress and producer explained on the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” that her short-lived presence on “RHOA” was a bad trade she didn’t want to make.
She went on to say that as it got too difficult, she decided that she was done with it, as she only joined in the first place for the experience she was going to get.
“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 noted on the morning show.
In the first place, Fields had no plans to be on the show for a long time, so in a way, she got what she wanted.
Big No’s To Re-Dos
When a loved reality star decides to leave a housewife franchise due to one issue or the other, fans are always curious about when they intend to come back.
In the past, many of these stars found their ways back to the show, but for someone like Fields who detests repetitions, coming back to “RHOA” would never happen.
The star has openly discussed that she has no intentions of returning to the show, and that decision does not seem like it would change anytime soon.
New Opportunities & Goals
Since leaving “RHOA,” Fields has moved on to other TV opportunities, including “Dancing With The Stars,” and she’s making waves in the directing aspect of her career.
These days, the 52-year-old is featuring on an original Netflix comedy program titled “The Upshaws,” and is receiving requests to join in the re-boot of some of her past shows from the 80s.
Still not a fan of re-dos, Fields is a talented actress, who has had a successful TV career, which is not coming to an end anytime soon.
