Who wouldn’t want to be best friends with one of the Facts of Life stars? They learned everything they need to know over nine seasons and can boil it all down into one song. (You take the good; you take the bad…) Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are rumored to be such close friends with one of the ‘80s ladies that they shower her with diamond rings and asked her to be the godmother to their children.
These reports have been around since 2010, so when Andy Cohen had a mini Facts of Life reunion with Mindy Cohn (Natalie) and Kim Fields (Tootie) on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live! on May 31, he had to ask Mindy Cohn to play “Plead the Fifth.” Though she was happy to answer which Facts of Life episode made the series jump the shark (“When Edna’s Edibles turned into a friggin’ store!”), she said “Plead the fifth” when Andy asked about the rumor.
It wouldn’t be so strange if it turned out to be true. The degrees of separation between Mindy and Brad are negligible — Brad’s good pal George Clooney was on several episodes of Facts of Life. Ah, memories.
