‘The Facts of Life’ Cast To Reunite
You take the good, you take the bad, you take mostly the bad and there you have the Facts of Life. The Facts of Life. There’s a time you gotta go and show the world that you’re all still alive but twice as large and unattractive and that’s why you have Nick at Nite. Nick at Nite. TV Land. Whatever.
Either TV Land’s audience is getting younger or we’re getting older. (Don’t answer that.) The network has announced that the cast of The Facts of Life will reunite next month for the first time in 20 years to accept the Pop Culture Award at the 2011 TV Land Awards.
I’m getting up off my knees. I’m praying no more. For the Lord has answered my nightly wish that I’ve been whispering to the ceiling above for the past twenty years. “Sweet and merciful God. Please bring Natalie, Tootie, Jo and Blair together one more time. For the world. Not just for me. For the world.
In other TV Land Award news, Gabe Kaplan, co-creator and star of Welcome Back, Kotter, has been added to that cast’s reunion to receive the 35th Anniversary Award, as has Robert Hegyes (Juan Epstein). They join their previously confirmed castmates John Travolta, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Ron Palillo, and Marcia Strassman.
Golden TV moment possibility. Hear me out on this idea; Facts of Life chicks versus the Sweat Hogs from Welcome Back, Kotter in a WWE Survivor Series type wrestling match. Winner is crowned TV Rerun Champion. Loser spends five minutes in a steam room with John Travolta. Unless it’s one of the Facts of Life chicks. Then he will pass.Speak Your MindTell us what you're thinking... and oh, if you want a pic to show with your comment, go get a gravatar!
