The acting business is not easy work.

Both Blair and Jo were cute & all, but Molly Ringwald was the FOL girl I had a crush on. I grew up with her.

Also, this would have made my penis explode back in the day:

She also praised her boss, "Tyler Perry is such a brilliant man."

Obviously the butter has slipped off the noodles. Desperate much?

Too bad she didn't stick around for very long on that show.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
