Celebrity Survivor Lisa Whelchel George Clooney Facts of Life ABC Jeff Kent

Survivor has a new celebrity castaway!

Remember Facts of Life?? The Diff'rent Strokes spin-off from the early '80s??

You'll never guess who CBS plucked from that old show and dropped on a deserted island!

Hint: It's not George Clooney!

Aww!

It's Lisa Whelchel, the blonde bombshell who played Blair!

She will join baseball player Jeff Kent and 16 other people who aren't yet famous!

It's been awhile since we've caught a Facts of Life marathon on TVLand but isn't Blair the spoiled, prissy one?

How will she to eat bugs, wipe her butt with leaves, and go an entire month without curling her hair!?

We cannot wait to find out!

What a mystery!

Entertainment Tonight interviewed Gary Coleman's Diff'rent Strokes co-star Todd Bridges and he revealed that Gary not only recently had open-heart surgery, but he also had a some secret last wishes!

Here are some HIGHlights from Todd's interview, airing tonight!

On the good times they had together:

"We had an exceptional time as kids. We always had fun in our dressing rooms, we'd always roller skate together around [the studio lot], we always hung out… we went to school together. He was a precocious, fun little kid that was very bright for his age."

On Gary's behavior as an adult:

"Imagine having major health problems. Imagine getting ripped off of all your money. Imagine being raised in a household where he wasn't taught how to love himself or to love others around him. So when he hit the world at an adult age, he wasn't prepared."

On Gary's open-heart surgery:

"Physically, he wasn't in great shape. He had a valve replaced, and people didn't know that."

On Gary's last wishes:

"[A friend of mine and I] have paperwork, and we'll bring it out soon, that will show what his wishes were and what he wanted. There's a big fight going on with his parents and some other people involved, and after we bring this paperwork out, everybody's going to shut up.

"Gary had certain wishes [excluding his parents]. I'm not going to go against a dying man's wishes. … There's a reason why he didn't speak to them for 23 years."

Sounds intense!

We wonder what the big news is!

Poor thing.

Diff'rent Strokes star Todd Bridges has opened up about his past as a victim of sexual abuse and drug addiction in his new book, Killing Willis, and now has revealed he became a drug dealer at 22 to work off his $30,000 debt!

However, he couldn't stop doing the drugs he was selling!

Bridges says:

"I worked four different hotels and I had five girls that worked on the streets. I hated myself. I hated the way I looked in the mirror. I believed everything people said about me."

We're so glad he was able to clean up his act and get his life together! That's a lot better than most in his position seem to do.
