Kim Fields Reveals ‘DWTS’ Partner Made Her Text Photos of Her Meals (UPDATE)


UPDATE (11/3/17 at 11:59 a.m. ET): 

Not only is Kim Fields opening up about her difficult experience filming Real Housewives of Atlanta in her new book, the actress is dishing on her Dancing With the Stars experience.

The 48-year-old reveals her partner, Sasha Farber, made her text him photos of her meals.

“Sasha made me text him photos of myself at each meal to prove that I was eating enough,” she writes.

Then, when it came time for Switch Up Week, Kim was partnered with Keo Motsepe, who she believes made a move on her!

“During one rehearsal, we were dancing close and I felt something hard near his pocket,” she shares.

“’Are you kidding me?’ I exclaimed. He stopped, stepped back, and reached into his pocket, laughing and embarrassed. ‘No, no no, it’s my microphone pack!’”

Original story (11/2/17 at 12:22 p.m. ET): 

Kim Fields did not necessarily enjoy all her time on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The actress is opening up about her time on the reality show in her new memoir, Blessed Life.

Though she had some fun moments with her fellow cast members, she was glad to leave the show after one season.

The Facts of Life star reveals producers really wanted her to join the cast, despite the fact she turned them down initially.

“Besides assuring me that I wasn’t being punk’d, they acknowledged being aware the show was out of my wheelhouse,” she writes in her book obtained by Radar Online.

“They had reasons: the cast was routinely shuffled, and they wanted to add a lighter tone, which they saw me providing. One of the company’s top executives called the next day to emphasize their interest.”

She continues, “They knew what I stood for. They knew I was not going to engage in the show’s trademark confrontations. They were good with that.”

After discussing the opportunity with her husband, Chris Morgan, the pair decided it would be a good move for the 48-year-old.

“I had to admit, after the initial shock, Chris and I saw more positives than either of us imagined.”

However, filming was a whole other ballgame, one that Kim wasn’t necessarily prepared for.

“There were highs and lows, a couple of fun moments, moments of feeling unsure of where I was going, but still in control…and I supposed no adventure is complete without a bit of danger,” she shares.

“The truth of the matter was, I wasn’t going to compromise who I am and what I’m about, how I roll nor my safety for the sake of a storyline.”

She continues, “I tried to be still but ready for anything on this adventure. At times, it was hard to see some of the women, grown women, interacting the way they did on and for the show.”

And, though she’s spent her entire life in front of a camera, the Dancing With the Stars alum didn’t love sharing her personal stories with the world.

“Briefly looking back on the whole season, here’s some of what I discerned: Being myself, sharing my reality in a quasi-real reality can be a bizarre vibe,” she says.
