You Take the Good, You Take the Bad

The 81-year-old grandmother of two resurfaced at a hospital parking lot in West Hollywood last week, looking pleasant.
Charlotte Rae
To bolster ratings in 1985, producers had Mrs. Garrett's bakery, Edna's Edibles, destroyed and replaced by the Over Our Heads gift shop. Rae left the series the following year.

Charlotte's mother was a childhood friend of late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir.

A beautiful lady that has aged the way god intended. You Go! She looks great and I love the way she is holding her sunglasses. I always thought she was a genuine woman when the show still aired and now I am sure.

I thought she was hysterical in Car 54 where are you? The scene where she has to do a job for the Police and she takes the mission as if a secret agent is wonderful. What ever happened to her?

I think Charlotte Rae looks fantastic! I don't understand when these "Hollywood trashmags" pass judgement on these people by saying things like. "Look at them now." How would you like some camera to follow you around all day? To the mailbox for your morning paper? To the Doctor when you feel sick? To the Pharmacy to pick up a prescription for your young child? Do you people who write this stuff look fantastic all the time? DOUBTFUL. You are made out of the same stuff as the rest of us. I think Ms. Rae is a class act and looks fantastic. Kudos to her for not running off to the plastic surgeon and getting results that would scare everyone. She's just being real folks. You ought to try it sometime!

GILF lover    

Her character sometimes expressed comioally on the show her desire for John Travolta, obviously playing off Travolta's celebrated relationships with women in that age demographic. It had been forbidden on TV for a 50-year-old woman to lust openly after a 22-year-old boy, even fictitiously toward an unseen icon of the '70s as John was. To this then-adolescent male, however, it was a revelation to know that older women could be capable of having such fantasies or attraction for younger men. It was a turn-on! Now I find her a hotter GILF than ever!! We'd teach one another a few things about the facts of life! ;-p
