Former “The Facts of Life” co-stars Kim Fields and Lisa Whelchel are reuniting for a Hallmark movie, “For Better or for Worse.” “Good Morning America” had the two actresses on to talk about the program on Wednesday (July 16).
One of the highlights? Their former co-star, Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett), showed up in a video message to congratulate her girls on the upcoming movie.
Whelchel and Fields played Blair and Tootie, respectively, for 9 seasons of “The Facts of Life” between 1979 and 1988. Their reunion project, “For Better or for Worse,” is a romantic comedy about wedding coordinators getting a second chance at love. It will air Saturday, July 19 on the Hallmark Channel.
