'Facts of Life' mini-reunion on 'Watch What Happens Live'

Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields dished on "The Facts of Life" when the two sitcom actresses were reunited on "Watch What Happens Live"
Actresses Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields (better known as Natalie and Tootie from "The Facts of Life") sat down with "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen on Thursday night for a mini "Facts of Life" reunion.

Cohen couldn't help but pepper the two with questions about the sitcom, which ran on NBC from 1979 to 1988.

Which of the actresses was the first to lose her virginity? Cohn, whose character was the first of the Eastland girls to have sex, told Cohen that art really did reflect life. (An admission Cohn said would probably upset her parents, who were watching).

Was there a moment when the actors knew the series had jumped the shark? Cohn admitted to remembering "a few." Including the time, "when Edna's Edibles turned into another frickin' store."

Which actress was the biggest partier? Cohn. (Both Fields and Cohn agreed on that one).

Who did Fields prefer? Charlotte Rae or Cloris Leachman? Fields had to go with Rae, because she was there at the beginning.

Was there anything the girls didn't want to reveal to Cohen? Yes. The gabby Bravo host asked Cohn about the rumor that the actress is godmother to Brad Pitt's and Angelina Jolie's kids. Cohn chose to take the 5th on that one.
