Kim Fields wants no more of the tomfoolery.

The former child actress, who went on to play Régine on Living Single and then raised a few eyebrows when she became a cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, said that she will not be returning for another season of the reality show.


Apparently her mother was prescient and had warned her not to get too comfortable with the gig.

"Think about […] at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? 'Get in and get out'—so listen to your mama!" Fields said during an interview on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.


Despite all of the drama that surrounded the stint, including her having to endure accusations that her husband was gay, Fields said that she feels grateful: "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 that makes sense for my team and my family. Overall, it was a really great experience.”
