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.
Lisa Whelchel's sumptuous feasting continues...

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.

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.

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.

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??

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.
