‘Facts of Life’ stars reunite for movie


Move over Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. A couple of other old TV pals are reuniting, too.

Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields, who co-starred on the hit sitcom “The Facts of Life,” are teaming in a new Hallmark Channel movie called “For Better Or For Worse,” airing July 19.

Spelling and Garth, who became stars on “Beverly Hills, 90210” in the ’90s, recently got back together in an ABC Family sitcom called “Mystery Girls.”

Whelchel and Fields go back even further, having shared the small screen from 1979 to 1988 on the boarding school sitcom that first gave a young George Clooney widespread exposure. Whelchel played snobby Blair and Fields was gossipy Tootie.

In the Hallmark movie, Whelchel plays a wedding coordinator and Fields is her friend and co-worker in the romantic comedy about getting a second chance at love.
