All season long on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” fans and cast mates alike have been debating whether newcomer Kim Fields was a good fit with the other ladies on the show. Although there were definitely valid arguments on both sides as to why Fields was or wasn’t a great addition to the cast, there won’t be anything for fans to debate next season about her because Fields recently revealed that she’s walking away from “RHOA.”

According to media reports, Fields recently spoke about her freshman venture into reality TV and when she was asked about whether she plans to return to “RHOA,” she explained that her time on the show is done.

“Feels more like Brett Favre and the Jets, you know — I’m done,” Fields said. “I mean, and think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? ‘Get in and get out’… listen to your mama!”

Fields then explained why she decided to join the show and why she doesn’t feel the need to continue her journey on “RHOA.”

“It was 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 makes sense for my team and my family… Overall it was a really great experience,” Fields added.

We can’t say that we’re surprised that Fields is giving up her “RHOA” peach after just one season on the show. While she did present a more laid-back, stripped down and “normal” persona for “RHOA” fans as opposed to her glossier cast mates, it never seemed like she had the shady attitude or fire for confrontation that makes for good reality TV. But fans will still get to see her on TV now that she’s a cast member on season 22 of “Dancing with the Stars,” which began last night on ABC.

    So glad she decided to leave. Every woman on that show could’ve learned something from her. She’s on her grown woman ish.

      Wow…GLAD TO SEE Black WOMEN taking a stand for their IMAGE.

      Lately you BLACK WOMEN have been getting BEAT DOWN in White Media.

      Kim Fields, should have never STOOPED SO LOW…she should have produced her own show…REVIVING “Living Single,” would have been an EXCELLENT MOVE. Hint…hint.

    I’m glad to see her walk away from this drama filled show. Kim is to grown for the likes of most of the cast.

    I’m so glad Kim Fields is leaving the show. Not because I have issue with her because I don’t, I just think that it’s not a good fit for who she is and her personality. I love Kim Fields and what she represents and wish her the best in all her future endeavors.

    It’s nothing but a show for broke, fake, buffoonery. Sad that they would want to depict themselves in a 21st century minstrel show. Good for you Kim …

    You were too good 4 them. I did like the times you put Kenya in her place.

    Kim just doesn’t have the “killer instinct ” the other ladies have. The others are tough and hard. Not so Kim. Glad she left before she became one of them

    Iam so happy that she is leaving the show she was very boring

    • lorene on March 25, 2016 at 6:51 pm

      YES, THAT bore thought she would be accepted because she is Kim fields. hahaha. Those ladies on the show had to work hard and go through shame to get their recognition and MONEY on this show. She gets no EASY PASS.

    Kim thought that because she was “miss Fieldss” that the ladies would give her a pass and ‘bow’ down to her and her arrogant husband. She should have known better. she and her husband was so full of themselves. They were arrogant and condescending to those ladies. I hated that she treied to act like she was soooo holy, but was soooo ready to curse and put her religion on the shelf. she made a fool out of herself and her family for that money.

      Sorry she didn’t tap dance for you boo. She never acted holy. If you cannot tell the difference between decent and Housewifey and Holy, perhaps it’s time you turned off the TV and stepped into the real world.

    She should have remained a friend of Kenya on the show and put that pilot together. No, she thought that she would get more acceptance from the ladies (who didn’t like her or her arrogant husband) and the audience if she went against Kenya. Well, it didn’t work, and she blew her chance to show us if she really did know how to direct a pilot. Her commercial for Cynthia was not original, and I really believed that Kenya would have done a better job. At least we know that Kenya was able to write, produce, and direct her own pilot. She introduced Kim to the show and wanted Kim to share in her success. Kim is overrated and she should STOP looking in the past and remember that this is the 21 century. I AM SO GLAD THAT SHE IS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE.

      Kim Fields has 16 Directorial credits on http://www.imdb.com , including a movie and a miniseries. She needed nothing from Kenya, including her 3rd rate acting “talents”.

    Kim, you were far too classy for these people. Glad you got your paper and got out before any of their BS stuck to you. Keep Dancin’!
