SheWired Shot of the Day: 'Facts of Life' Cast Reunites for TV Land Awards

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value.

Hopes of a Facts of Life reunion movie set years in the future with Jo and Blair happily in love and raising their twins (one girl, one boy) on a ranch in Santa Fe were dashed years ago when Lisa Whelchel announced she was a born-again Christian, but at least she’s here posing with her TV lesbian cousin Geri – although it does look as though Cloris and Charlotte are absorbing any lesbian / conservative Christian tension that might be occurring.
