Kim Fields Explains Why She Didn’t Return to ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’


Real Housewives of Atlanta fans surely noticed actress Kim Fields’s absence from the roster during the Season 9 premiere Sunday night.  

While many feel the low-key mom and wife is a little too calm for the show and doesn’t quite make the drama quotient like her costars, most reality stars try to stick around for at least two seasons, for no other reason than to stack up their cash.


The former “Living Single” actress clearly isn’t worried about that, as she voluntarily left the drama to those built for the messiness.

Many believe it was mainly due to other “housewives” implying Kim’s husband Chris Morgan is gay, which could very well play a part.  According to Bustle, however, Kim says she’s ultimately taking her mother’s advice.

"I'm done.  I think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? ‘Get in and get out.’ Listen to your mama.”



While she did just that and parted ways with the Bravo mainstay, she claims to have enjoyed the experience and accomplished her ultimate goal on the 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 for the family. Overall it was a really great experience."


Kim has since competed on Dancing with the Stars, and according to Atlanta’s MJAC, 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."
