The Cast Of The Facts Of Life REUNITED!

Filed under: TV NewsAwardz

Wow! This is truly LOVELY!

Check out all of the original castmembers from the classic '70s-'80s sitcom, The Facts Of Life - including Charlotte Rae, Lisa Whelchel, Nancy McKeon, Mindy Cohn, Kim Fields, Cloris Leachman, and Geri Jewell - reuniting all-together for the first time since the series ended at the TV Land Awards, thanks to Good Morning America (above)!

It's so amazing to see everyone looking so well and happy to be spending time together again!

And we do think that it does say something that none of the child actors on the show seemed to face the struggles that many of their peers during that time period did!

Too bad they couldn't have gotten George Clooney though, right?! LOLz!

Either way, we think it's about time for a reunion movie! Just saying!

Cousin Geri From Facts Of Life Comes Out!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayEtc.Inspiration

Oh, we're defintely going to read this. Such an inspiring story.

Geri Jewell, best known for her role as Cousin Geri on The Facts of Life, will be releasing a memoir in April called I'm Walking As Straight As I Can: Transcending Disability in Hollywood and beyond.

In her book, Geri recounts her difficulty breaking into Hollywood with cerebral palsy, her pride in opening the doors for future generations of disabled actors and, for the first time, her admittance to being gay. It's a one-of-a-kind story from someone who has seen it all in this business (and in life) in a very unique way.

Wow. We can't even imagine the hardships she's had to face. Thankfully, she's come out the other side stronger, wiser and braver than most people will ever be. Definitely give this book a read!
