After hearing the news on Friday that the Facts of Life was the next show to get the reboot treatment, sadly we found out that on Sunday, Charlotte Rae, who played Mrs. Garrett on the original show passed away at her home in Los Angeles at the age of 92. Rae was battling bone cancer. She wrote a memoir in 2015 called The Facts of Life where she detailed her life, her 44 years of sobriety, and finding out that her husband was a bisexual. She also spoke lovingly about the young women she worked with on The Facts of Life. Charlotte will be missed.
