Gig That Would Have Made Mrs. Garrett Blush--and Secretly Proud: Performing The Vagina Monologues on stage, 2001-2002.
Meet the Real Me, Age 13: "The perfect man for me has to be intelligent, have a great sense of humor, nice eyes, must be easy to get along with and he can't be a male chauvinist," she told Jet magazine in 1982.
Meet the Real Me, Age 33: "I want to be married again. I want to have children and grandchildren and, you know, all of those things," she told Lifetime in 2001.
Quasi-Celebrity I Dated: Jonathan Jackson--the one who's the son of Jesse, not the one who played the son of Luke and Laura on General Hospital.
Celebrity I Had a Crush On: Todd Bridges, of Facts of Life progenitor Diff'rent Strokes. The attraction was short-lived. "Todd and I could never marry because he's a Gemini and I'm a Taurus and we're both stubborn," she told Jet in 1982.
Celebrity I Was Not Allowed to Date: Gary Coleman. While Fields read for the part of Arnold's girlfriend on Diff'rent Strokes, producers rejected her because she was too tall. The two later hooked up as costars in the 1982 TV movie, The Kid with the Broken Halo.
Hobbies: Collecting Wizard of Oz memorabilia, and, once upon a time, roller skating. (Yes, just like first-season Tootie.)
My Little Secret: She once trashed her Facts dressing room, rock-star style, when her mother nixed a trip to, ahem, a roller rink. "I threw books. I threw pillows. I emptied my drawers. I tore my name off the door. I said I was sorry later, but I don't know if I meant it or not," she told TV Guide in 1981.
My Favorite Episode of Seinfeld: "When Elaine has Kramer take her Christmas pictures and her nipple was showing ['The Pick']," she told Entertainment Weekly.
