Did you wonder if perhaps Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett on "Facts of Life" and "Diff'rent Stokes") had passed on?
Bite your tongue! Mrs. G lives! I kind of cracked up at her comment about Mindy (Natalie Green) Cohn. When "Facts" was starting up, they went to the L.A. girls' school Mindy was attending to get some ideas about what girls' schools were really like. Mindy entertained and impressed them so much that they ended up writing her, a non-actress, into the show. But apparently she doesn't like to be reminded of that fact.
