Previous thread maxed out at 599. The last post there was a scan of her People magazine article which notes internet speculation that the cause of her divorce might have been her husband Steve's sexual orientation or her demanding personality. She could be flakey sometimes in her blog posts, but I don't think she came across as demanding.
I can totally see her as demanding. Lisa's personality is to create an image. She creates the best image for the public. When she's around those she's closest to, the image falls away and there you have a demanding personality. She values what you do, not what you are and those types of people can be very demanding.
However, I also agree that's not the case. Her husband is a flamer.
You know her, R1? Do tell!
Clearly r1 does NOT know her.
Remember the controversial blog post where she answered a mother's letter thinking her son was gay? In it (I don't have the link right now), she mentions it is totally normal for a boy to not express interest in girls or date as a teenager, and she cited her own husband as an example.
After reading all 600 posts in the previous thread, and both People magazine articles, I love her more than ever.
Can someone give me a quick rundown of the 600 posts on the previous thread? I missed it in real time and don't have the energy to read through it. Basically, do we hate her for being a fundie? Or do we not? TIA!!!
Not anymore. She has evolved.
We still love her, and she doesn't believe in praying to god to help win sports games or Survivor.

She sure is tacky, and she sure embraces her dull, middle-class, devoutly Christian, middle American existence. Her ambitions are limited, and she has an incredibly tiny worldview. On the other hand, we have to love her because she was Blair on 'The Facts of Life,' plus she seems to have faint glimmerings of awareness there's more to life than the banal suburban world she constantly talks about.

[quote]Easy-going Lisa has adopted the motto “take the good, take the bad,” from her old TV show, but the harrowing incident frightened her family and friends, said an insider.
[quote]“Since Lisa has been back in the spotlight with ‘Survivor,’ she has been getting crazy mail, and there’s always the fear that some nutcase might be trying to get to her,” explained the insider.
[quote]“She’s getting popular again, but fame comes with a lot of headaches. And since she’s still very attractive and divorced, she’s going to get a lot of attention. In the wake of this latest mishap, friends are telling her, ‘Next time, take a plane!’”
[quote] Guess why I'm in Atlanta? I'm filming a movie! I'm SO excited& having so much fun. TylerPerry is hysterical&brilliant!
I guess I'm going to have to finally watch a Tyler Perry movie.
Will Lisa play a nasty church lady?
Did anyone watch her co-hosting the Probst show this week?
I did -- she is far nicer to to that host than he deserves
Did she give us any news, R37?
J always talks over her.
[quote] I guess I'm going to have to finally watch a Tyler Perry movie.
Don't bother..they're dreadful.I've only ever watched one, and it was enough.
The next Tyler Perry movie will feature Kim Kardashian, another reason not to watch. Oh, and her acting was dreadful in the trailer.

Could someone explain to me why DL has a troll obsessed with this woman?
OP posts thread after thread and it's one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen on DL.
I initially had to look-up this woman to know who she was. The fact she's an official nobody, a 1980s sitcom ensemble member who rarely if ever finds herself mentioned in any mainstream media makes it extremely weird that somebody here would be so obsessed by her.
Apparently she's a fundie whom the OP finds loathsome; and she probably is. So why is the OP so absorbed with her??
What is Tawny's issue with Lisa? Did Lisa cut in front of her at Whataburger or something?
What's with the white people who look Asian like LW and LeAne Rimes? They both look like shit with blonde hair. Embrace your asian selves bitches!
The picture @ R51 makes me smile. It's almost as if time has stood still, and the two of them stepped straight out of 1988 -- minus the big hair, of course. How did they not age, and the rest us did?.
R47, you must be new around here....or just trolling.
R49, Whelchel is part Cherokee Indian....and looks infinitely better as a blonde.
R48, I read somewhere that Crazy Tawny is friends with Probst's wife (who is a producer of his talk-show): I guess she took exception to Jeff's apparent fascination with Lisa??
well if probst is gay, that would explain the fascination with Lisa.
Seriously, she looks AMAZING. Wow. Divorce has actually improved her looks.
I watched the Probst show that had Jenna Fisher as a guest. Gawd, Probst is extremely tedious. Luckily, one of Lisa's most developed characteristics is grace.
I watched her on the Survivor preview show. She did a pretty good job.
R52, are you legally blind? They both look old and Fields is balding.
Did I hear my name?
Who knew Lisa was really the scat troll?

she is really turning into someone i would enjoy hanging out with. who knew?!
Wow. That acting class was terrifying & alluring & I wanted to be on stage & I wanted to run out the door. I think it's just what I need.

I'm fairly certain I've heard the "F" word more in the last half hour than in my whole life. Who knew it was such a multi-purpose adjective
[quote] Just finished season 1 of Downton Abbey & completely hooked. I feel sorry for Edith. My favorite character is Mr. Bates. Who is yours?
I so wish there was a way to rescue people like her brother and ex-husband. It seems such a sad, tragic, unnecessarily miserable existence. What's the deal with her new gay BFF? Where did he come from?
What evidence is there that Lisa's brother is gay?
Another question: Am I the only person who wonders if Justice is Lisa's son, not her half-brother?
He just looks really gay to me, R85. I don't know if anyone has anything more than that. About Justice being her son...is there any evidence for that? For a half-sibling relationship, they seem unnaturally close, especially when considering the age difference. Her reaction to him on Survivor was more like a mother reacting to her child.
There is no evidence of Justice being Lisa's son that I know of, r86. I just wonder about it for the reasons you listed. It doesn't help that Justice and Lisa have a fairly strong resemblance. Maybe they both favor Lisa's mother, the parent they have in common?
Does she acknowledge being a lesbian icon?
She's more a gay icon than a lesbian one.
Nancy McKeon would be the only member of that cast to be considered a lesbian icon...
Is Lisa going to be in anything else right now? I can definitely see her on a TVland show. Her kids are gorgeous and Clancy looks exactly like her.
Yes, I do have it on good authority, that Justice, is Lisa's son...
Second the question about if she's going to be in a show or anything. She looks great.
The only thing I've heard is that she'll be in a Tyler Perry movie. I'd like to see her on TV too. Maybe she could host Survivor.
R93 - You never saw Facts of Life?
Um, yeah, R94, I've seen many episodes of FOL. 30 years ago! What does that have to do with anything?
