Facts of Life Facts of Life

You take the good, you take the bad, you reunite them merely for the sake of nostalgia and there you have the video from today's episode of Good Morning America below. In it, The Facts of Life's principal actresses--Charlotte Rae, Lisa Whelchel, Kim Fields, Mindy Cohn, Nancy McKeon, Cloris Leachman and Geri Jewell--reunite for the first time on camera since the series ended, in advance of their scheduled appearance at the TV Land Awards (Sunday, April 17, 9/8c).

A clip from their taped awards show appearance is easily the best part of this video-- in it, Charlotte Rae says she's so proud of her girls because, "They all turned out to be straight! Straight!" I guess that clears up the longstanding rumors about Jo, but it does not account for Geri Jewell's recent coming out. (I kid, I kid: Rae goes on to clarify that she wasn't referring to sexuality.) Mostly, it's just great to see the gang back together, answering the same questions they have individually for years and will undoubtedly go on to answer in the years ahead. After this video, just one question remains: where's Pippa?
