Good special that focused on rich vs. the poor
4 December 2016 | by (Chicora, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Fran Davies (Kari Michaelsen, GIMME A BREAK!) spends the summer at the home of rich girl Andrea Fairchild (Jennifer Jason Leigh) where her mother (Marion Ross) accepts a job position as a maid. This also gives Fran enough time to catch up with her snobby cousin Brenda (Hallie Todd) who frowns at the thought of Fran's mother working for a rich couple. Even Brenda and her friends dismiss Fran when she spends a lot of time with Andrea and Brenda gives Fran an ultimatum, Andrea or her, but Fran discovers that Andrea's parents are too much into their rich background to even raise her and she and Brenda learn a valuable lesson at the end.

James Karen and Julie Pieratski (one of the original Eastland girls on FACTS OF LIFE) make small appearances.
