The Facts of Lisa Whelchel’s engagement!
November 18th, 2019 under The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Lisa Whelchel grew up learning the Facts of Life, and one of those facts is getting engaged to the person you love. The actress did just that! She said yes when her boyfriend Dr. Pete Harris asked her to marry him. She moved to Nashville to be with him and that is where he got down on one knee.

Blair Warner had this to say about her good news, “I said, “Yes!!!!” to spending the rest of my life loving this man. To marriage as a spiritual path with this true companion. To belly laughing over sophomoric humor and word nerd puns. To never-enough couch cuddles and kisses on curbs. To creating memories while on a bi-coastal family adventure. To soul growth within the crucible of intimacy. And, fun – lots and lots of fun! I love you, @lovemattersmostyall and I am grateful beyond words for the Grace that led me to you. 📸: @keno1947”

This will be her second marriage. She was married to Steven Cauble for 24 years and they have three kids together.

Welchel will next be seen in You Light Up My Christmas, December 1st on Lifetime with her three other FoL co-stars Nancy McKeon, Kim Fields and Mindy Cohn.


Lifetime brings The Facts of Life girls together for Christmas
October 21st, 2019 under Lifetime, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1979, we got to know Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Jo on The Facts of Life. This Christmas, Kim Fields, Mindy Cohn, Lisa Whelchel and Nancy McKeon are going to have a 40th reunion on Lifetime in the movie You Light Up My Christmas.

Fields, who is starring and producing the telemovie, explained why she asked her classmates to join her. She said, “We’re sisters. We have a ball when we get to hang out personally and holidays are about family, memories and fun. So, when the opportunity came up to combine all of that with You Light Up My Christmas, I invited Lisa, Mindy and Nancy to make some fun, Christmas cameos and was thrilled they all enthusiastically jumped on board.” Maybe Lifetime will see how well the four of them still work together that they will consider giving them a revival. How awesome would that be?

Charlotte Rae, who passed away last year, will also be part of the film. They named an ice rink after her. Therefore, you should look out for it when the movie debuts on December 1st.

February 28th, 2019 under MeTV, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Lisa Whelchel is returning to TV on a station that airs The Facts of Life. MeTV, the channel that airs classic television shows, is getting into the original programming business.

On April 7th, Collector’s Call is coming to their network. Each week, they will feature people who collect some of the most amazing things like items from The Wizard of Oz, KISS, presidential artifacts and so much more. We learn about their collections and then they will have to make a big decision. Trade one of their iconic items for something even more iconic or keep what they have. Anyone, who has collected anything, knows that is an impossible decision.

What was not an impossible decision for them was to get Blair Warner, I mean, Lisa Whelchel to host the show. Facts airs on their channel every morning, so it is a match made in TV heaven. To make it even more heavenly for us, they are going to air a special 3-hour marathon of the classic sitcom that will include her 5 favorite episodes. To make it even more enticing, she will tell us why each episode was so memorable for her. What a perfect way to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary. Who feels old now?

Although, watching MeTV makes us feel young again. Thus, Collector’s Call is the perfect mix of old and new for us.


The World’s Largest Disco celebrates with the era’s biggest stars
November 26th, 2018 under The Brady Bunch, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Over the weekend, Buffalo held the World’s Largest Disco and several ’70s icons came out to put on their boogie shoes. The groovy celebs are The Brady Bunch’s Barry Williams, Mike Lookinland, Chris Knight, Susan Olsen with “Fake Jan” Geri Reischl, Howard Hesseman and Loni Anderson from WKRP in Cincinnati, Lisa Whelchel from The Facts of Life and Deney Terrio from Dance Fever.

What a neato lineup of actors who look just as great now as they did then. Plus, they did it for a good cause because the event was to raise money for Camp Good Days & Special Times. That’s the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it.
