Aside from her physical beauty, actress Lisa Whelchel has little in common with her Facts of Life character, Blair Warner. A devout Christian, Lisa has recorded several albums of Gospel music and has written many books about homeschooling and religion. During the 1990's Lisa did little acting as she was busy homeschooling her three children, however, she did appear in a 1997 TV infomercial for the SpaceMate Gold Exerciser and in promos for the 2000 Facts of Life Unhidden Mysteries Marathon on Nick at Nite.
In 2012 she joined the cast of Survivor on CBS for the 25th season and announced that she will return to acting. In 2014, she reunited with fellow Facts of Life cast member Kim Fields to star in the Hallmark Original Movie For Better, or For Worse and appeared at the Facts of Life 35th anniversary celebration in Beverly Hills. During the summer she tweeted a photo of herself and Charlotte Rae (Edna Garrett) having lunch, and said 'She's giving me advice, just like old times.'
