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.


Nancy McKeon has seen better days
November 19th, 2018 under The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Nancy McKeon looks like she was struck by lightning, so what is going on with her hair? While lightning did not strike for her on Dancing with the Stars this season, a blowdryer did. Well, The Facts of Life are you cannot do the ABC dancing competition show without a spray tan and huge hair. In other words, she had to get her ’80s on for tonight’s season finale.

Even with the hairsaster, the actress still looks gorgeous. Hopefully, some show will hire her because TV has been missing her.


Nancy McKeon is learning the facts of Dancing with the Stars

For years, Nancy McKeon has been out of the spotlight, but not anymore. Good Morning America revealed that she will be on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. Her partner is the recently engaged Val Chmerkovskiy.

She is the second actress from The Facts of Life to appear on the dancing competition show. The first was Kim Fields. Tootie saw her career have a jumpstart after she was on DWTS and hopefully the same will be said about McKeon.

Can you believe she is 52 because she looks even better now than when she was on the classic sitcom?

Can you guess who has my vote? McKeon of course. I cannot be the only girl who did not want to be Jo when she grew up. I still want to be here. Us Bronx girls stick together.

Who will she be competing against? The full DWTS cast will be announced next Wednesday on GMA and season 22 will debut September 24th on ABC.
