Bravo’s reality series The Real Housewives of Atlanta is only one branch of their ever-popular Real Housewives franchise, but it’s definitely one of the most successful. RHOA was the second show in the Real Housewives franchise to be developed back in 2008, not long before The Real Housewives of New York City. Season 9 is currently on air and features only a few ladies who’ve been around since the beginning. Similar to most of the other Real Housewives shows, RHOA has a lot of former Housewives who either disappeared from reality television all together, or moved onto new opporutnies. Here’s a list of 7 former Real Housewives of Atlanta — find out what they are up to now!
7. Kim Fields
This Housewife was hired on to replace Sheree Whitfield in season 8, but she only lasted one season and Whitfield managed to snag her coveted spot back for season 9. Kim Fields was a good addition to the cast, but she clashed with fellow Housewife, Kenya Moore. Fields is well known as an actress for her roles on NBC sitcom The Facts of Life as Dorothy and Regina on the Fox sitcom, Living Single. Not even a year after announcing she was joining the cast of RHOA, it was announced that Fields wouldn’t be returning. “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 made sense for my team and for the family. Overall it was a really great experience,” said Fields when asked about her departure. Instead of continuing on with Bravo, she joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars for season 22 and was partnered with dancing pro, Sasha Farber. Fields and Farber landed in eighth place after being cut in a double elimination.
