While "Real Housewives of Atlanta" colleague Porsha Williams jumps aboard the first Trump-less "Celebrity Apprentice," Kim Fields is going to take a twirl on "Dancing With the Stars" for its upcoming 22nd season.

ET broke the news.

Fields - also a producer and best known prior to reality TV as a star on "The Facts of Life" and "Living Single" - joins several "Real Housewives" who have taken part on "Dancing With the Stars."  She just joined the cast of "Real Housewives' this past season and has had to fend off Kenya Moore's bad attitude, rumor mongering and jealousy.

The others from the "Real Housewives" franchise who have taken part on the show:

-Lisa Rinna before she joined "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" finished fourth season two

-Lisa Vanderpump ("Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"), 10th place, season 16

-NeNe Leakes (formerly of "Real Housewives of Atlanta"), 7th place, season 18

-Kim Zolciak (formerly of "Real Housewives of Atlanta"), disqualified 11th place, season 21

The full cast will be announced March 8 on "Good Morning America."
