Who didn’t love The Facts of Life 35th Anniversary reunion panel? I think it was a highlight for so many people and fans of the iconic series. I can’t tell you how excited I am for the show to be coming to DVD in a full series set. Finally, the full Eastland, Edna’s Edibles and Over Our Heads years!
I hope that the reunion will be on the set as well. That would be be amazing!
Pinky has an awesome recap of her time at the panel, check it out below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here still walking on a cloud after meeting the girls from The Facts of Life. What a great night! Although it was super disappointing that Kim Fields couldn’t join in the fun (really, Tootie?!?!), we had a blast.
I’ve been to a lot of Q&A panels in my day and that was definitely one of the most entertaining – especially seeing “Mrs. G” swear! I loved being able to attend not only with my Mike the Fanboy family members,
but also with my adorable husband, Keith, and my sister, Erin (who watched all the episodes with me growing up – we LOVED that show!!!).
It was awesome to watch the panel among such incredible people and especially to see how well Lisa Whelchel (aka Blair) and Nancy McKeon (aka Jo) got along in real life. While all of the girls got along great, Lisa and Nancy seemed to have a special bond. Lisa posted a picture of them later that night – they could totally have a reality show together! I’d definitely watch!
Nancy came across as the most gracious of the group, followed closely by Lisa. I was really impressed with their answers to the questions and how they treated the fans afterwards.
While it was a bit insane after the panel, I was lucky enough to get pictures with both Lisa and Nancy, who also signed my lunchbox along with Mindy (who was only doing autographs that night, no pictures). I’m so grateful for Mikey and Susan letting me know about the event – thanks, guys! And I can’t wait for the box set of the entire series to come out later this year.
