Kim Fields says she's saying goodbye to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The 46-year-old Dancing With the Stars contestant broke the news during a call-in radio interview with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show on Monday when she was asked if she'll be returning to the popular Bravo reality show.

"[It] feels more like Brett Favre and the Jets...You know? I'm done," Fields revealed, referring to the NFL star's single-season run with the New York Jets in 2008.

"At the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? 'Get in and get out.' Listen to your mama," added Fields, who went on to explain that she did the show "for the experience."

However, the Facts of Life star seemed more open to the idea of returning when she spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner backstage at Dancing With the Stars after Monday's exciting premiere.

"I would not want to squish anyone's creativity by starting out with, 'I am not going to do this, I am not going to do that.' Always stay open," Fields said. "See what happens."

"There are so many factors involved," she added.

Fields only appeared on season 8 of RHOA, which concludes April 3 after a three-part reunion special. During her short time on the program, Fields clashed hard with fellow Housewives star Kenya Moore, who recently spoke with ET about Fields' participation on the show.

"[Kim] was just not a good fit," the 45-year-old former Miss USA said, adding that she wasn't surprised Fields might not return for a second season. "I just feel like, you can be a good person. You can be cool with people at church… but this show and this dynamic? I just think you have to be interesting to be a reality personality."

Fellow Housewives star Cynthia Bailey shared Moore's sentiments, telling ET she didn't feel Fields was "comfortable in this group."

"I love Kim," Bailey added, "but [people] hadn't thought about her a lot until she came on the show. It was a great career revival for her and an amazing platform for her to be on."

Bailey said Fields needed to "play ball" with the dramatic nature of the hit reality series, but she wasn't able to "figure out how it works."

Fields made her DWTS debut Monday night, dancing a fun cha-cha with her pro-partner, Sasha Farber. The actress earned a formidable score of 20 out of 30, and her bubbly personality won over the judges.
