"Facts of Life" Reunion - Kim Fields and Lisa Whelchel

Hi all:

Since I list "Facts of Life" (FOL) as one of my favorite oldie but goodie TV shows over in the right side of my blog, I thought I'd share this cute snippet of a reunion between Tootie (Kim Fields) and Blair (Lisa Whelchel).

This happened last Thursday, February 1, on a Dallas morning TV show where Kim was appearing to promote a play she's in down there. The TV host surprised her by bringing out Lisa (who lives in the Dallas area).

Watch it directly from the TV station here.

And watch it on YouTube where a kind fan posted it here.

I'm not sure which video will disappear first so I put them both up.

If you're an FOL fan, try to watch it without grinning! And for you diehard fans, Kim even mentions Julie Pie, who I think is Julie Piekarski.

So here's a trivia question for you:

Which character did Julie Piekarski play during the first season of FOL when there were about 90 girls in the cast before they trimmed it to the 4 girls who would carry the show through 8 more seasons?

Thanks for posting the video clip... I just watched it! They are so cute.
I have no idea which of the nameless horde was Julie Piekarski. Maybe I can do a google and cheat :D
