The 51-year-old tells People it all started with a sudden fatigue in 2012:

"I was walking around my neighborhood in Los Angeles and I suddenly got so tired. I just couldn't go anymore. This was before Uber was really a thing, so I texted my friend Helen Hunt and said, ‘Something's wrong with me. I need help.'"

So scary! Sadly, the diagnosis was breast cancer, and the treatments — radiation, chemo, and a double mastectomy — were like fighting back a "siege." Mindy recalls:

In an interview with People, the beloved comedienne revealed the awful news:

"Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer. About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually it's too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew."

But Charlotte hasn't let illness cost her the pep in her step. She's facing this new challenge bravely and openly. She explains:

Kim Fields Explains Her Decision To Go From 'Real TV' To Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Can Wendy Williams Dig Up Any Dirt??

no title

This actually makes a lot of sense.

We were pleasantly surprised — yet worried for her sanity – when we first heard that none other than Kim Fields would be joining Real Housewives of Atlanta this season.

While Bravo has had established actresses like Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson join their casts before, the Facts of Life and Living Single star is a full-on icon, so we were left wondering why she decided to join the ranks of reality TV.

Luckily, Wendy Williams was there to ask the tough questions, because on Thursday's Wendy, she put Kim in the hot seat about abandoning "real" TV for reality television.

Kim was quick to point out that as a celebrity, she's already done all the acting she wants to do and that just hanging out with a group of girlfriends is the bigger adventure for her!

Ch-ch-check out Kim's decision to join the Bravo franchise before RHOA's premiere this Sunday at 8 p.m. EST (below)!!!

The Cast Of The Facts Of Life REUNITED!

Filed under: TV NewsAwardz

Wow! This is truly LOVELY!

Check out all of the original castmembers from the classic '70s-'80s sitcom, The Facts Of Life - including Charlotte Rae, Lisa Whelchel, Nancy McKeon, Mindy Cohn, Kim Fields, Cloris Leachman, and Geri Jewell - reuniting all-together for the first time since the series ended at the TV Land Awards, thanks to Good Morning America (above)!

It's so amazing to see everyone looking so well and happy to be spending time together again!

And we do think that it does say something that none of the child actors on the show seemed to face the struggles that many of their peers during that time period did!

Too bad they couldn't have gotten George Clooney though, right?! LOLz!

Either way, we think it's about time for a reunion movie! Just saying!
