Fields, 48, met Janet Jackson while her mom Chip appeared on What’s Happening!! In 1977. Chip had Janet come to their house to rehearse cenes for the show, much to young Kim’s delight.

“I had a nearly impossible time picturing my celebrity hero walking through our front door and saying hi to me,” she wrote. “A few days later, though, that’s exactly happened: Janet walked through our front door and said hi to me. Her big sister La Toya dropped her off….over the course of several weeks, I got used to Janet’s presence. Sometimes La Toya stayed. But more often than not, she dropped Janet off and my mom and I took her back to her family’s Tudor mansion in Encino.”

“The Jacksons respected my mom, and they became friends of ours,” Kim added. “Janet and I, in particular, became very good friends. Like a big sister, she taught me fun tween makeup and hair tips. When I had a costume party, she let me wear one of her famous Mae West costumes from the family’s TV show. Her generosity blew me away.”

“I remember playing with Janet one day at her family’s house when Michael was filming the movie The Wiz,” she said, later adding, “Once, I went to Disneyland with Janet and Michael. His chief of security drove us in a brown Rolls-Royce. Michael wore a hat and sunglasses, and that seemed to be enough to avoid getting recognized. The Enchanted Tiki Room musical attraction was his favorite. I remember laughing the entire day.”

But, not all of her celebrity encounters were as pleasant. “When I guested on Diff’rent Strokes, I saw firsthand the show’s star, Gary Coleman, go off on the director,” she noted.

Kim also revealed that she was closest to Mindy Cohn on the set of Facts of Life because they were the closest in age and attended set school together. Nancy even taught her how to shave her legs for the first time.

But, the easygoing set took a turn shortly after Joan Rivers made a joke about Mad magazine’s “The Yaks Of Life” spread in 1982, calling the girls “the Fats of Life.”

“Given that she was raising her own teenage daughter, Joan should have known better than to make fun of young, developing women that way,” Fields wrote. “I was dealing with sensitive weight and body issues, and putting out there as she did was unnecessary and hurtful on many levels.”

“Apparently somebody with influence heard the comedian and decided she had a point,” Fields continued. “One day we returned from a break and found the chips and cookies and yummy snack food at the craft services table had been replaced with celery, carrots, jicama, and other vegetables. They brought in a scale and made us all weigh in each week. Lisa Welchel was also sent to several so-called fat camps and someone from the network suggested I see a therapist. When I asked why, I was told, ‘Because of your eating.’”

She went on to interview Michael Jordan while she was a student at Pepperdine, and dated Reverend Jesse Jackson’s son Jonathan. She began hosting a campus-wide TV show after their split, and got Montell Jordan, Darryl M. Bell to help her start the program. Celebrities including Whoopi Goldberg, Betty White, Blair Underwood and Jason Bateman appeared on the show.

“Briefly looking back on the whole season, here’s some of what I discerned: Being myself, sharing my reality in a quasi-real reality can be a bizarre vibe,” she affirmed.
