Kim Fields comes from a family that is cut out for acting. Those who have a thing or two to say about her would acknowledge her directing prowess and then tell tales about how her mastery of acting was evident in 1979’s The Facts of Life, 1993’s Living Single and 2012’s What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
Of course, there are much more items in the list of films that Kim has appeared in. Most recently, we saw her in the 8th season of the reality television series, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

If she was cherished for playing the chitter-chatter buddy of Khadijah James, the publisher of Flavor magazine in the situation comedy, she was idolized for being Dorothy Ramsey, the youngest, gossip-loving and only African-American main character in the NBC sitcom, The Facts of Life.
