'Facts of Life' star Mindy Cohn on 'What Not to Wear' season premiere

Remember how Blossom‘s Mayim Bialik was on What Not to Wear before her current gig as Sheldon’s girl-who-is-a-friend on The Big Bang Theory? Let’s hope it works out in a similar manner for The Facts of Life‘s Natalie, Mindy Cohn, who will appear on the TLC show’s season 8 premiere Friday at 9 p.m. ET. Watch a clip below.

At 44, it seems that Cohn — who appeared in the 2007 indie film Sex and Death 101 with Simon Baker and Winona Ryder and has of late been voicing Velma in various Scooby-Doo videos and TV series — buys her clothing two sizes too big. (Though I did kind of like the gray ensemble.) Will she look more fashionable with Stacy and Clinton’s help? Yes. Is Stacy correct when she says, “Mindy, the paparazzi is going to photograph you!” No.

    Is she raising a baby with Snake?

    Mindy’s got a movie coming out (probably on dvd for the most part, but I think it is showing in theatres in NY and LA) that I’m dying to see called “Violet Tendencies”. I saw the trailer on Towleroad and it looks pretty funny.

    Anyway, she’s adorable – hope to see her in more things soon.

      I can’t wait for that movie to come out… looks hysterical!

    • Chris

      I can’t wait to see that movie too. Was searching for it on Netflix but it wasn’t on there. I’m pleased with where her career is going.

  • Sarah

    I was wondering when WNTW would be back.

    I like how it says that she’s been Velma “of late”. She’s been Velma since ’02, was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for being the voice of Velma in ’03, has voiced her in two ongoing series, video games, and nine of the direct-to-DVD movies. Sounds like serious constant work to me.

      Nitpick much?

    • heej

      thanks, Mindy

      • Tuzo

        That is my official “quote of the day”. Too funny!

  • jury’s out

    I love Mindy! Cartoon work is great. It’s steady, good pay, and it doesn’t matter if your clothes are two sizes too big.

  • b

    I think the more interesting news about her is the fact that she is the god mother to some of Brad and Angelina’s children? I had to read that 3 times when I saw it..

    • Sharon

      I read that too – pretty random, right?

      • Gator

        I just read that there was no truth to that rumor, that she doesn’t even know Anelina and Brad.

      • Gator

        *Angelina, sorry.

      • Sharon

        Oh, if only this was a website devoted to providing information on celebrities, perhaps they could clear this up for us…

  • Marta S.

    I’m a full figured lass, too, but dealing with clothing in my own size is difficult enough-women’s petite sizes-size 14 and up,I think?They seem geared to teens-too baggy and too long. I don’t think I could deal with two sizes larger. Hope they find something *do-able* for Mindy.

  • jfms777

    Her new movie does look good.

  • Danna

    Mindy, you are super beautiful!! You have beautiful eyes and cheeks and your enthusiasm is AWESOME!! I adore you!!!

  • Jeni

    I didn’t mind so much the clothes she was wearing before the ambush. LOL I don’t know what that says about my style but I’d love to have some of the clothes they threw away from her wardrobe. In fact, I’m scouring the web, trying to find some cute long & loose fitting tops.

  • Jeni

    If any1 knows where I could find some, pls fill me in.

  • Amy

    Oh no Mindy! I loved your “before” easy, California style. I’m in the middle of watching my DVR’d ‘What Not to Wear’ and I hate to say it– but Stacy & Clinton have it all wrong. I generally love what they do, but you have great style and I think your personality shines through. You could never look ‘sad’. And I LOVE your gold charm necklace. Go dig those clothes out of S&C’s bin except for the hospital gown :)

  • sidney joyce

    Mindy Cohn is one class act. Saw her on What not to wear. Best personality of any star out there. She is engaging and instead of being self serving accepting the $5k, she declined it. Give this gal a new sitcom! I’d rather watch her than any actress on tv. Great role model for females, just an overall sweetheart. We love ya Mindy!!!!

  • 1955

    Mindy you were terrific!! Beautiful and self assured

  • Lynn Angela Pisco

    I think Mindy Cohn looks really good at her age right now also it doesn’t matter how old she is but she still looks like the character of Natalie Green from ” The Facts Of Life ” . Yes I’m truly a big huge fan of this show cause it’s very funny and I think Natalie Green is one of my favorite
    characters . I wanted to ask her : what was it like working with her fellow actors from the show ? Were u nervous on getting the part of Natalie Green as your character that represents who u are right now ? How did it change your life since then when u started to look back over the years ? If u were planning to work with any particular Hollywood actor except for George Clooney, who wouldn’t choose and why ?
