The Ricki and the Flash premiere happened in NYC on Monday night and that’s like 4,000 years ago in Internet years, so if my 80s self could, it would pull a switch off of a tree and whoop my ass good for not posting these pictures earlier. Mrs. Garrett from Facts of Life graced the premiere with her star power, because apparently she’s in that movie. THE HELL? I only learned that highly important fact today. They play the trailer for that movie at least 500 times an hour on TV and not once have I seen Mrs. Garrett’s face pop up under the words, “STARRING THE LEGENDARY CHARLOTTE FUCKING RAE.”
It’s illegal that Charlotte Rae didn’t get any billing at all. She should get billing over Meryl Streep. Sure, Meryl Streep has won 45 Oscars and is the God of Hollywood, but did she star in not one, but two, television jewels of the 80s? Nope! I swear, Hollywood is so disrespectful to real legends. I hope Charlotte used her cane to beat some ass over not getting the billing she deserves.
Here’s Charlotte working a memaw pimp look at the premiere. I also threw in pictures of Meryl, Rick Springfield and others. I can’t with any of them, because I couldn’t find one picture of them getting on their knees to worship at Charlotte’s Easy Spirits.
