From the Twittering mind of Lisa Whelchel...Part 2
The other thread seems to have disappeared.\
Apparently Lisa is still the family''s main bread-winner.\
[italic]True story: I just received two residual checks in the mail for one penny each! Just send me the two unused stamps![/italic]\
And she includes photographic evidence at the link!
I have received stock dividend checks for .01 before. I just threw them away until the accounting department called and asked me to PLEASE cash the checks, since it was costing the company more money to draw the checks and mail them than the dividend was worth. And they had to keep issuing checks because they couldn''t just keep even that small amount on their books. My bank said I was not the first person to come in with checks like that.\
Okay, back to your regularly scheduled Lisa Whelchel twattering.

You beat me to it, R24. A seriously classic Lisa tweet.
Do you think she has any clue how much we make fun of her and mock her?%0D
I wouldn''t mind her knowing how much we make fun of her, but I would want her to know that we do it lovingly.
r26 doesn''t get it.\
We don''t mock her. We kind of adore her.
Speak for yourself.%0D\
I mock her. She''s an idiot.%0D\
I mock her and kind of adore her. \
That Christmas letter she wrote about what an utter failure she feelslike on her blog a couple years back was like something out of a David Sedaris short story. \
Personally, I''d love it if she got divorced, gave up being a professional "Lady Christian", and moved into an apartment in Burbank and filmed a reality show about trying to make a comeback into sitcoms.
Lisa is spending the day lounging by a swamp -- apparently in the middle of some clear-cut forest -- reading a book that is NOT found in the Approved Christian Lady Book Guide! And she''s wearing her Lesbian husband''s shoes.%0D\
[quote]This is my view for the day...
Thanks R32..I searched, even via Google, and it didn''t come up\
[quote] Went to WalMart to get Haven''s eyes checked after a run-in with a wave on the jet ski. Diagnosis: eye concussion. Prescription: TLC &drops.\
Walmart? really? Do they not have real doctors in Bumfucke fundieland?
[quote]I''ve been looking all over for the flashlight, and all this time Haven''s been using it as a dildo!
I wonder if she knows Angie Harmon.
How can you not like Lisa? %0D\
The bitch defriended me on facebook!
[quote] The bitch defriended me on facebook!\
Perhaps you were on her original "personal" FB page which she deleted and made a "fan" page instead
Yeah, it was because she switched to a fan page, but I just kind of like having something to be faux-outraged at her about. Lisa doesn''t know dick about "friendship" between adults! I miss her blog and the sister site The Blair Necessities which would eviscerate each entry.
I loved the Blair Necessities. %0D\
I''m counting down the days till Lisa''s Christmas letter this year.
My favorite entry was probably the one about the bike trip she took with her mom...and they ruined it for all the other participants.
Chili And Sea Bass
I miss it too.
Lesbian dad Steve''s figure looks particularly womanly here, as he says goodbye to Clancy, who''s off on some missionary trip to Australia for a year.
"just send me the two unused stamps"\
I don''t think the post office would deliver them, dear.
[quote]This was waiting for me in my hotel room. These women know the quickest way to my heart is a bouquet of chocolate.%0D\
Poor Lisa doesn''t realize those Christian bitches are just trying to sabotage her diet...
[quote]I love chocolate soooo much that I would eat chocolate edible undies off of Haven. Even if they were white chocolate.

It''s only for 6 months. And she has a blog....\
[quote] Clancy just posted another delightful update on her blog, "8,582 Miles From Home." Enjoy
[quote]"True story: I just received two residual checks in the mail for one penny each! Just send me the two unused stamps!"
In other words, she wants more than what she is entitled to.
Lisa's the speaker at a "women's event" in Montgomery, and she's trying to sneak a gay in!
[quote]Been a BIG fan of yours since I was 10 years old! Now you're coming to my hometown of Montgomery & I can't meet you. So bummed
[quote]Lisa Whelchel @LisaWhelchel 39m39 minutes ago Why can't you come? I hope it's not because it is a "women's" event. I would love to meet you.
[quote]guy: That is why :( But, I just bought to tickets to Butterflies for the last show of the run (one of my fave plays!)
[quote]Lisa Whelchel @LisaWhelchel 24m24 minutes ago My ex-husband will be there as my road manager. You could hang with him & we could tell them you are assisting him. Really.
[quote] guy: OMG that would be awesome! I would love to attend! #YouAreAwesome
God love her daffy self. Daffy but genuine.
I can't imagine sweet Lisa as the monster mother (the Eileen Heckart, Gloria Swanson role) in BUTTERFLIES, but an interesting choice for the Alhambra Dinner Theater, which has had plenty of DataLounge faves grace their stage through the years.
At one time or another Pamela Bellwood, Karen Grassle, Blythe Danner and Keir Dullea were in the original Broadway production...like a DL Hall of Fame or something. It ran for almost three years! You'd never see a play run that long on Broadway today.
That's interesting casting...
Fun fact....Pamela Bellwood & Lisa Whelchel co-starred in the 1982 Aaron Spelling civil war-era M.O.W., "The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch."
(Also starring Joan Collins, Pamela Barnes, Lee Horsley, Morgan Brittany, Donny Osmond, Phyllis Davis & Howard Duff....you can't get any more 1982 than that)
It like Lisa, very, very, much. It hopes her sit com is good and gets green light.
I would like to see Lisa with Molly Ringwald in a dinner theatre production of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
Alhambra theater? In America?
What's next, Sharia Law?
Alright, which one of us is going to Jacksonville as a DataLounge representative to see Lisa in Butterflies Are Free? We've got to send SOMEONE. It would be rude for us not to have someone there to send this board's regards.
Edge is a dick
Is she Asian? Or just another WP who looks asian like Zellweger & LeAne Rimes?
Well this is just too much. Now Lisa's at the bar getting wasted with her kids.
Gravy! I am scandalized on behalf of her family, and Gamma Gamma!
R80 - I would love to see a tipsy Lisa.
She is looking really good.
[Quote]Basically, I like the fruity, sparkly one
Well, it explains her marriage to Steve.
It's worse than we feared: now Lisa is experimenting with hallucinogenics!
[quote]Lisa Whelchel 46m46 minutes ago Someone played this song for me and now I'm in love. I want this little girl and I want to be a frog. Wanna join me?
The video she recommended, at the link.
"Who knew I would meet someone in Jacksonville, Florida who owns half the obscure, esoteric books in my personal library. Now, I only have five weeks to read the other half of the books in his. Starting with this odd gem today about a telepathic, mystic gorilla who teaches us how to save the planet. #zengreenmonkey"
This is the same crazy fundie that put hot sauce on her kids' tongues? I thought she was Kirk Cameron-level insane, but she seems more liberal and open-minded. Is that a recent thing?

I believe her divorce made her question and re-evaluate things in a more deeper manner.
She used to be associated with Dobson and Focus On The Family and all their bullshit but has recently come out in support of gay rights as well as getting away from their influence.
I suppose I would describe Lisa and the changes she is going through as someone who was once brainwashed but has now started to accept the truth/reality of things.
agreed. she's a good egg.
R91 - Lisa has a nice voice.

That's good to hear. I'm rooting for her.
Is Lisa dating her co-star (Xander) from Butterflies are Free??!!
I've been watching FOL reruns on Logo and would like to officially declare that Lisa had the best hair in the history of television. This is now law.
R99 - I don't know about the best, but Lisa has fantastic hair.
I like Lisa Welchel, I have no problem with her. She and Nancy McKeon always came across as being nice people.
Welchel really didn't have a lot to gain by, correctly, in my opinion, pointing out that Christianity's reputation for being anti-gay is "well earned".
She has her religious convictions, she did her best to walk it like she talked it, and now with the divorce and getting older she is realizing things.
As we all get older we all realize the same things, I think.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
