'Facts Of Life' cast reunion on 'Good Morning America'The Eastland School girls were back together with their housemother today on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) for a 'Facts Of Life' cast reunion. Lisa Whelchel (Blair), Kim Fields (Tootie), Mindy Cohn (Natalie), Nancy McKeon (Jo), Geri Jewell (Geri), Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett), and Cloris Leachman (Mrs. Garrett's sister Beverly) joined Cynthia McFadden of 'GMA' for a conversation about the show.

The group was already together for the TV Land Awards Sunday night. Rae had expressed how proud she was that her former castmates had turned out so well, saying at the awards show Sunday they had all turned out "straight." McFadden cleared that up; some in the crowd had misunderstood Rae's intentions. "I was thinking of a tree that grows up straight to the sky," said Rae. "Why, what did you think?" Rae seemed genuinely embarrassed when it was put to her that some thought she meant straight vs. gay.

All was forgiven, though, when the cast begrudgingly sang a tuneless rendition of the 'Facts of Life' theme song. The prospect of being asked to sing the song may have been what had kept them apart since 1988 when the show ended.
