Lisa Whelchel of 'Facts of Life' Fame Compares Daughter’s Wedding Photo to Her Childhood Pic
Time flies! The actress, best known for her role as Blair in the popular comedy “Facts of Life”, compared her daughter Clancy Cauble’s wedding pictures to a childhood photo of herself.
Lisa Whelchel’s daughter Clancy is a married woman now!
The “Facts of Life” alum shared an adorable picture of herself as a kid alongside Clancy’s wedding picture on Instagram.
“I blinked and…,” she captioned the post, which featured little Lisa clad in a wedding dress alongside the picture of her daughter as a real bride.
A daughter’s wedding is an emotional affair for any mother, and judging by the post, Lisa was presumably thinking about how fast time goes by.
Clancy followed in her mother’s footsteps to become an actress. At 23, she made her debut alongside her mother in “Hearts of Spring.”

I got to dress up in a fancy red dress, rub elbows and learn from some of the most phenomenal experts in the field of malnutrition, hear stories from countries like South Sudan and the DRC, and ALSO witness our amazing partners @actionagainsthunger raise enough money to help MILLIONS of children around the world. Wow. What a phenomenal evening. ...also, never thought I’d post a mirror selfie but the story alone was worth it.
After that, she appeared in two other movies, “Separation Anxiety” and “Sunburst,” both of which were released in 2016.
Although Clancy hasn’t been busy with acting in recent years, the possibility of seeing her on-screen in the future cannot be denied.
LISA’S TRIBUTE TO COSTAR CHARLOTTE RAE
Last year, Lisa’s “Facts of Life” costar Charlotte Rae passed away at the age of 92.
In her memory, the actress wrote an article for Hollywood Reporter as a tribute.
“But we were friends for almost 40 years. The last time we spent some time together, I really got to experience more of what most people presumed our relationship to be. And as I’ve gotten older, I learned to really appreciate so much of the wisdom that she had, wisdom that really came from life experience. I'm 55 now. The last time I saw her I was probably as old as she was when I first met her. There was a real coming home in our last meeting.”
The actress further mentioned how she realized that her costars from “Facts of Life” were like family and Charlotte was a big part of it.
