Watch: Sara Gilbert Channels 'Facts of Life's' Lesbian Crush Jo for Halloween
The ladies of The Talk go all out for Halloween. And this year, with Lisa Whelchel as a guest host, the women donned schoolgirl uniforms and dressed as Facts of Life characters with out co-host Sara Gilbert channeling the show’s butchy character Jo Polniaczek (played by Nancy McKeon).
Whelchel, who’s appearing on this season’s Survivor dressed as her memorable Facts of Life character Blair Warner while Julie Chen took on Mrs. Garrett, Aisha Tyler dressed as Tootie and Sheryl Underwood was “black Natalie.”
With a wink and a nudge to the tens of thousands burgeoning lesbians who crushed out on Jo back in the day Gilbert said that “of course” she would dress as Jo, which prompted Chen to ask Whelchel if the character Jo was a lesbian.
Whelchel replied that Jo had “a million boyfriends” on the show and was the only character who got married, to which the other cohosts joked that boyfriends and marriage don’t mean anything.
Tyler kidded that Gilbert probably had loads of boyfriend before coming out as a lesbian.
