The Facts of Life Cast Reunite on Home & Family; Jamie-Lynn Sigler Guests on Baby Daddy

The Facts of Life Reunion on Home & Family

It's The Facts of Life reunion show this morning on Hallmark Channel's Home & Family! Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare welcome actresses Charlotte Rae (Mrs. G), Lisa Whelchel (Blair), Kim Fields (Tootie), and Geri Jewell (Geri). In the episode taped on Friday, Lisa cooks a delicious Mexican cornbread, while decorator Ken Wingard and Kim make DIY blinged roller skates. Hollywood beauty specialist Kym Douglas and Lisa show you how to achieve her character Blair's fabulous hair and a prep school inspired fashion show from lifestyle expert Debbie Matenopoulos and men's fashion expert Lawrence Zarian. And wait there's more, singer Gloria Loring performs The Facts of Life theme song, too. There will be a few guest surprises along the way...see below.

From 1985-1987, 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! Then, 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. Watch all of this today at 10am ET (and repeating at 12pm on Tuesday) on The Hallmark Channel!
