This is siren blaring breaking news for those of you who learned everything you need to know about life by watching episodes of The Facts of Life. Geri Jewell, who played Blair Warner’s cousin Geri for a few seasons, has fully come out as a labia-loving lesbian in her new memoir!!! Cousin Geri not only talks about being a gayelle, but she also writes about being the first person with a disability to play a recurring character on TV and how she hit rock bottom when she got into the bad shit.
I’m going to need Lisa Welchel to take a moment from blogging about “hot saucing” her kids to fully address Cousin Geri’s coming out party. I’m also going to need another Facts of Life reunion special where we find out that Cousin Geri and Jo fell in love, moved to Massachusetts and opened up a bike shop/comedy club together.
