You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have The Facts of Life! The classic show began in 1979 and thanks to nine great seasons it became a cultural icon.
We were all super invested in these characters after spending the better part of a decade with them, but have you kept up with them all? What have they been up to since?
Charlotte Rae - Edna Garret
She was the cornerstone of the show after it was spun-off from Diff'rent Strokes. She went off to live at Eastland School with all these other characters, but what has the actress been up to since?
After The Facts of Life ended, she has been doing a fair number of voice-over work. She even played Nanny in the cartoon TV show version of 101 Dalmations. More recently she has appeared in ER, Pretty Little Liars, and Girl Meets World.
Lisa Whelchel - Blair Warner
The rich and rebellious girl was eventually rewritten to be more or "daddy's girl" after Jo was introduced.
After the show ended she too a long break from acting. She returned in 2001 to play Blair once again in the The Facts of Life Reunion, but then didn't do anything else until 2013. She has however, started doing a few TV movies. Instead of acting, she spent a lot of time writing music and books on parenting. She also had a run on season 22 of Survivor, where she came in second place.
