You take the good, you take the bad, and decades later, you take an amazing selfie.
More than 26 years after “Facts of Life” left the airwaves, former co-stars Lisa Whelchel and Charlotte Rae reunited over a midday meal Tuesday — and couldn't resist snapping a photo to mark the happy occasion.
Apparently Rae hasn’t changed much since her days of playing Eastland School’s sage housemother, Edna Garrett.
"She gave me some good advice. (Just like old times.)" wrote Whelchel, who played snobby rich girl Blair Warner on the hit sitcom.
Whelchel has been on a nostalgic roll lately. Next month she’s set to star with former “Facts of Life” castmate Kim Fields (Tootie Ramsey) in the Hallmark Channel movie “For Better or For Worse.”
You hear that, George Clooney? Might be time to start dusting off the ol' tool belt.
