Kim Fields Quits ‘RHoA’ Over Gay Rumors About Her Husband — Report
Though Kim Fields hasn’t officially confirmed she won’t be back for Season 9 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, she seems less than enthused about the possibility of returning to the Bravo hit for a second year, and now we know why.
Apparently the root of Kim’s RHoA dissatisfaction stems from the unsettling rumors Kenya Moore brought up about her husband Chris’s sexuality.
An insider tells Life & Style, “The rumors spread on the show, that Christopher is gay, were absolutely unacceptable. Her kids will have to deal with the fallout for years to come.”

According to the source, the mother of two even asked Bravo to edit out the footage where Kenya and many of the other women questioned Chris’s sexuality, but her request was completely denied.
Gay chatter aside, it was pretty obvious Kenya had an issue with Kim from the get-go, and the former child star is disappointed the execs never stepped in.
“Kenya just kept coming after her,” the source says. “Kim felt the network did nothing!”

Bravo has said nothing about Season 9 casting — in fact, they haven’t even confirmed another year of RHoA is on the way — but Kim said of her turn on the show, “Maybe this is a a Brett Favre with the Jets one and done kind of thing.”
Seeing as how the 46-year-old is currently kicking ass on Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars, we don’t blame her for considering all her options!
