Is Lisa Whelchel really 60 years old?
May 30th, 2023 under Are they really their age?, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday was Lisa Whelchel’s 60th birthday, and you would never know it by looking at her. She looks exactly the same as she did when she was on The Facts of Life over 40 years ago.

And if she didn’t age and I grew up watching her, then I am not aging either. That is how it goes, right?

Seriously, doesn’t the actress look fabulous? Blair Warner would be proud of how beautiful she turned out—all of Mrs. Garrett’s girls aged fantastically.


A Facts of Life mini-Reunion
September 9th, 2022 under The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

A few months ago, we saw Mindy Cohn, Kim Fields, and Lisa Whelchel reunite for the Live in Front of a Studio Audience reenactment of a Facts of Life episode.

Yesterday, three of the cast members reunited for another Norman Lear special. This time, it was to celebrate his 100th birthday.

Also, this time Nancy McKeon was there, but Whelchel was missing. Where was Blair Warner? The actress said to Natalie Green, “Beautiful! I’m disappointed I didn’t get to see you before you left. ❤️”

Whelchel is 100% right when she said that Natalie, Tootie, and Jo are “beautiful.” Can you believe it has been over 40 years since they started working together? Because it certainly doesn’t look it. And that is just the facts of life!


Janet Jackson reunited with her abusive TV mom’s real-life daughter, Kim Fields
July 5th, 2022 under The Facts of Life, The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]

Over the weekend, Janet Jackson performed at the Essence Fest, and she was reunited with an old friend Kim Fields. Both women share the same mom. How? Chip Fields is Kim’s biological mother, and she played Janet’s mom on Good Times in three unforgettable episodes in 1977. Chip’s character physically abused Jackson’s.

Not only did they share that connection, but Fields also guest-starred on two episodes of the sitcom.

So, they obviously have a connection. Therefore, as soon as they saw each other, it was like no time has passed for the two actresses who have known each other for 45 years. And neither woman looks close to being old enough to have known someone for that long.


Kim Fields still gets excited to see her face on a Times Square billboard
June 30th, 2022 under The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Kim Fields has been acting for 45 years. Therefore, you would think that she wouldn’t still get excited by stuff like new actors do when they see their names and faces in lights for the first time. You would be wrong.

The actress is in NYC and saw a moving poster for her show, The Upshaws, on Netflix in the middle of Manhattan. “I wish I could fully express this surreal stunned joy to be a girl from Harlem and see yourself on a Times Square billboard,” The Facts of Life star wrote. “This is my 3rd time and my mind body and spirit are yet again blown awayyyyyyyyyyyyy.🙌🏽”

Seriously, her reaction was so cute; all I could see was the little girl we got to know with braces who wore pigtails and got around on rollerskates. She might be a little older, but moments like this turn her into Tootie.


BTWF: Nancy McKeon for Best Foods Mayonaise
December 9th, 2021 under Before They Were Famous, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Before Nancy McKeon was playing softball on The Facts of Life, she was doing it for Best Foods Mayonaise. She looks the same now as she did when she was 12 in that 1979 commercial.
