Did anyone think he recent appearance on Suvivor was anything OTHER than a desperate attempt to re-launch her career?   And she's likely got a shot, decent name recognition, and the years have been relatively kind to her.

I wonder if her separation from her pastor husband was the beginning of a separation from her fundamentalist mindset.

In her defense she was a actually a big fan of the show and a decade ago was getting autographs of people from the show. Didn't know how to play the game (despite her 2nd place finish), but like Jimmy Johnson was a fan that happened to be famous.

So what the hell did the Pastor do to warrant a divorce? That's what I wanna know. She talks about the "years leading up to it" but not really alluding to wtf this guy did. I bet it was something horrendous to end a 24 year marriage...

In her 2001 book, "The Facts of Life," Lisa wrote that she felt pressured to marry Steve after their engagement was announced in front of the entire congregation - even though she says she hadn't accepted any of his proposals. Feeling she had no way out, Lisa went through with the wedding, despite admitting she was never attracted to Steve. They tied the knot just two months after her hit TV show ended in 1988.

Wow an arranged marriage to his buddy in the church. Way to fark over your daughter you douche bag.

/would still hit it.

here's a good vehicle for her...

She can play a 40's something recently divorced Mom who needs to move in with another 40's something divorcee..except the 2nd woman is a satan worshipper and Lisa is a Bishop's daughter.

So the pilot can contain her Dad coming for a visit, but she has to hide her satan worshipping roomate before Dad finds out!

Hijinx, galore!

I've been catching up with The Facts of Life recently as it is airing again on the HUB. I used to love that show. I used to think Blair was the most beautiful girl in the world. Honestly, Lisa Welchel did the character right - she's got quite a good comic timing. I'm totally rooting for her. She could def do well in another comedy.

/right now they are doing late 80's episodes when they opened the "Over Our Heads" store and introduced the Andy character + young George Clooney (my first crush). Unfortunately, this is when the episodes start to fall down in quality. Hopefully they will renew it when they are done and go back to the awesome Eastland episodes.

He had a very serious crisis in faith following an incident on a golf course where he was struck by lightening. The ironic thing was he was in contention to break the club record at the time.

Nancy McKeown looks younger now than she did in the mid-1980's. She really looked awful during those years.

She was married to a fundy? She probably got tired of him only wanting to put it in her ass and calling her "Timmy", "Johnny" and varied boys names.

She should be talking to the people over at TV LAND network if she's not already.  If they could convince Nancy McKeon to be on it with her, some kind of Kate & Allie re-boot for the 21st century, I think they'd have a big hit on their hands.

It could have been as simple as different goals (she wanted to work again and he didn't like that), or as complex as the Pastor having a complete midlife meltdown with girls and blow.

I'm not surprised she hooked up with Perry. He has a very strong church background and they would have a good work fit.

I don't have any, unfortunately. I had a few once upon a time but a subsequent girlfriend made sure they were disposed of properly...if you know what I mean.

Lisa also won the 'Survivor' fan favorite prize worth $100,000. The money is likely to come in handy for the newly single woman who divorced her Pastor husband just before signing on to do the reality show in March, 2012.


That is what I have noticed about christer women: that if their husbands got the ghey, they pray to make them straight.

Cool. She should have no problem, as the one thing everyone in Hollywood agrees on is that there are waaaaayyyyyy too many roles for 50 something women out there.
