Just like home

I didn’t mention Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel’s hideous childrearing advice when TMFTML did — mainly because, as the product of born-again parents who believed that throwing a glass of ice water in a child’s face was the best way to stop a tantrum, I was largely unfazed — but if you’ve missed her hot-sauce tips, do read Page Six on her new book.

Ms. Whelchel also did a turn as a Christian rock singer.
