Fields co-starred in a short-lived sitcom called Baby, I’m Back with Demond Wilson and Denise Nicholas, and she appeared in a television commercial for Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup before appearing on The Facts of Life. She later appeared on two episodes of Good Times as a friend of Penny Gordon Woods, played by Janet Jackson.

From 1979 until 1988, Fields starred as Dorothy “Tootie” Ramsey in the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life. Many people still remember her catchphrase, “We’re in trouble!” even after all these years. Fields was so short when the show first started filming that the producers had to put her on roller skates for the first season to avoid problematic camera angles.

Fields co-starred in a short-lived sitcom called Baby, I’m Back with Demond Wilson and Denise Nicholas, and she appeared in a television commercial for Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup before joining The Facts of Life. However, she was later cast 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. Fields released two singles on the Critique Records label in 1984, during the run of The Facts of Life: the disco/Hi-NRG “He Loves Me He Loves Me Not” (which became a modest club hit) and “Dear Michael” (which became a minor R&B hit, reaching No. 50).

From 1993 through 1998, Fields played Regina “Reginé” Hunter in the hit Fox sitcom Living Single. Following the cancellation of Living Single, Fields formed Impromp 2 and began performing rap and R&B music. Fields began directing after graduating from Pepperdine University with a degree in filmmaking. Fields directed a number of All That! episodes. She also appeared in two episodes of the Kenan & Kel spin-off. She has directed sitcoms Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, and BET’s Let’s Stay Together.

Fields has collaborated on projects with her husband, Christopher Morgan. Holiday Love, a Christmas television show she produced and filmed with Christopher, aired in 2010. The entire show was shot in three days. A second episode of Holiday Love aired for Christmas 2011 on TV One. Fields characterized the Christmas program as healing and transforming of her Christian faith in an interview that featured information on Holiday Love. Fields relaunched Holiday Love on the Internet in 2013.

 

Fields portrayed Theresa Newman in the Christian drama A Question of Faith in 2017. Fields’ first co-starring role in a feature film was in this picture, which released in theaters on September 29, 2017.

Fields is now starring in the new Netflix series The Upshaws.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Storyline for Kim Fields

She joined the cast of Bravo’s reality television show The Real Housewives of Atlanta for its eighth season on August 18, 2015. It didn’t last long, however, with Fields exiting after just one season. On March 21, 2016, she revealed that she would not be returning to the show for another season. 

Throughout Season 8 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, newcomer Kim Fields was continually berated for not being a suitable fit for the show.

Rather than waiting for Bravo to determine whether or not to renew her contract, Kim took the risk of quitting the show on her own, according to People.

Kim has been able to focus less on fitting in and more on being herself since leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and it appears to be working extremely well for her so far.

But despite all this being said and despite the fact thather stay lasted for only a season, her time in RHOA did not go down without beef.

Kenya Moore was first ecstatic to learn that Fields would be joining the cast. They met and discussed the possibility of collaborating on a television project. Fields agreed to see and analyze Moore’s pilot, Life Twirls On, and cameras caught the two discussing it.

When Cynthia Bailey invited the two to co-direct a commercial for her eyeglasses brand, things got a little tense between them. Moore declined to attend the meeting, allowing Fields to make the final decision.

Moore refused to participate in the commercial while it was being shot on location in Jamaica, despite Bailey’s request that the entire cast do so. Moore also started circulating sexuality rumors about Fields’ husband. Fields was also accused of leading a double life, according to her. Moore yanked Fields’ chair out of a sit-down discussion in Jamaica, escalating the situation.
