The hit 1980s TV series “The Facts Of Life” is one of the most beloved television shows of all time. If you’re a fashion maven who grew up in the 80s or a fan of the reruns, you most likely admired “Blair’s” amazing style! She had the most fabulous clothes and hair. I’m excited to announce that “The Facts Of Life” cast is reuniting on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” show tomorrow morning and I have a few sneak peeks to share with you including a video clip of co-star George Clooney sharing a favorite memory with Charlotte Rae. Enjoy!
Don’t forget the Home & Family “Facts of Life” reunion episode airs Monday, February 15th at 10 am ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.

GEORGE CLOONEY SURPRISE CLIP
From 1985 – 87, future Oscar winner George Clooney starred on “The Facts of Life” as hunky handyman George Burnett. It’s been decades since Clooney’s seen his former co-stars, but the kind-hearted star never forgot his humble beginnings. George surprises Charlotte Rae, Kim Fields and Lisa Whelchel with a taped greeting in which he recalls his favorite backstage memory with Charlotte. And it’s a doozy!
TODD BRIDGES SURPRISE CLIP
The last two times Kim Fields saw her “Diff’rent Strokes” pal Todd Bridges were during dark days — visiting Todd in prison, and at a memorial service for actress Dana Plato. So it’s no wonder Kim screams in shock when Todd walks in to surprise Kim, Charlotte Rae and Lisa Whelchel. Todd, who now hosts a live Las Vegas game show, and Kim – now appearing on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’, reminisce about a crazy fan who attacked Kim.
Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family quizzes “The Facts of Life” cast about the sitcom’s catchphrases — and gets Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields to revisit their character’s memorable lines: Blair’s “I’m having another one of my brilliant ideas,” and Tootie’s “We’re in truuuu-ble.”
