Who is Kim Fields?

Kim Victoria Fields, born on the 12th of May, 1969, is an American actress and director who became famous for her roles in the television series “The Facts of Life” and “Living Single.” She also became known through directing various television series, and appearing in the reality shows “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Dancing with the Stars.”

Kim Fields’ Early Life

Born in Harlem, New York City, Fields is the daughter of Laverne “Chip” Fields who is also an actress and a director. She has one older sister, Alexis. Her father, on the other hand, was not present while she was growing up, as her parents divorced when she was young.

Despite being an actress from a young age, Fields was still able to continue her education, attending Burbank High School in her younger years, where she was able to join the school’s baseball team as well as various theater productions. She then attended Pepperdine University, from where she graduated in 1990 with a degree in communications and film.

Kim Fields’ Career

Fields’ career started way back when she was five, with some of her earliest projects including the sitcom “Baby, I’m Back” and a commercial for Mrs. Butterworth’s pancake syrup. She also appeared in the series “Good Times” with Janet Jackson, as well as having a short stint in “Sesame Street.” Her early years as an actress helped jumpstart her career even as a young kid, and also established her net worth.

In 1979, Fields’ career breakthrough came when she became part of the sitcom “The Facts of Life”, playing the role of Dorothy “Tootsie” Ramsey. She was then cast in the sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” and reprised it later in its spin-off “The Facts of Life.” The latter revolves around the life of Edna Garrett, a housemother who looks after seven girls in an all-girls school, one of whom is Fields playing the role of Tootsie.

Aside from her braces and roller skates, her wit, comedic timing, and catchphrase “We’re in troouu-ble!” made her a household name thanks to the show’s success.

During “The Facts of Life”, Fields also released two singles entitled “He Loves Me Not” and “Dear Michael” that achieved minor success. The show stayed on air until 1988 and helped her tremendously in boosting her wealth.

Kim Fields after Career Break

After the success of “The Facts of Life”, Fields decided to take a break from acting and continue her education at Pepperdine University, but where she also started her own production company, Victory Entertainment Inc., which specializes in film, theater, and television production.

Once done with her education, Fields came back to acting. After a short stint in “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, she had starring role in the sitcom “Living Single” with Queen Latifah, which although short-lived, helped introduced her to more mature roles, and also increased her net worth. Other projects that Fields appeared in include, “Kenan & Kel”, “Cupid”, and “Uninvited Guests.” She also had a brief time in being a rapper, performing with her group Impromp2.

Kim Fields as a Director

Years after enjoying success in front of the camera, Fields decided to use her degree from Pepperdine University and become a director. Some of her earliest projects included directing multiple episodes of “Kenan & Kel”, a spin-off of “All That!”. She also directed some episodes of the sitcom “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns”, “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne”, as well as the BET show “Let’s Stay Together.” Her successful transition from being an actress to a director also increased her wealth.

Some of her current appearances include joining the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in its eighth season, as well as competing in the reality competition show “Dancing with the Stars” in its 22nd season, where she came in 8th place.

Kim Fields’ Net Worth

As of 2018 and based on authoritative sources, Fields’ net worth is reported to be over $5 million, acquired from all her years working as an actress and as a director.
