Facts Of Life Reunion!


Cloris Leachman (84), Mindy Cohn (44), Kim Fields (41), Charlotte Rae (84), Geri Jewell (54), Lisa Whelchel (47) and Nancy McKeon (45) reunited for the taping of the TV Land Awards here in New York on Sunday night. A couple of thoughts:
  • You all know that Geri Jewell recently came out, didn't you? Yep - GERI ... not Nancy McKeon!
  • I don't have any recollection of Cloris Leachman ever being on Facts of Life, but my goodness she looks fantastic. Actually, they all look pretty good.
  • I once saw Charlotte Rae walking down the street in NYC. Scratch that - I HEARD Mrs. Garrett, looked up, and there was Charlotte Rae talking to a friend. Her voice is unmistakable.
And here is Mrs. Garrett and the Girls back in the day...

Cloris replaced Charlotte near the end of the series. This was also when George Clooney joined the show and that little twink Andy.

Charlotte Rae got sick of the show and left. CL played her sister who came to help run the shop. They also added a cute little blond boy and George Clooney!

I recall CL replacing Charlotte and George coming aboard. I barely remember Geri's character and definitely would have thought Nancy McKeon would have been the carpet muncher. Just goes to show you just never know whose family and whose not........LMAO!
