Remember rich kid Blair Warner on the ’80s sitcom “The Facts of Life”? In real life, Lisa Whelchel was far removed from her snobby character — in fact, shortly after the series ended, she had blown through all of her TV earnings. Whereas Blair probably would have been devastated at the thought of living with less, the mother of three (and, more recently, one time “Survivor” contestant) tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” that losing it all was the best thing that could have happened to her. Well, as long as she’s happy!
