Former "Facts of Life" star Geri Jewell acknowledges in her upcoming memoir, "I'm Walking As Straight As I Can," that she's gay--and TooFab has the first words of support from any of her former castmates. Paging Natalie Green, aka Mindy Cohn...
A rep for Cohn, 44, who was on the show from 1979 to 1988, exclusively tells TooFab of Jewell's acknowledgement that she's a lesbian, "She's in 100 percent support of Geri."
Jewell, 54, who has cerebral palsy, played Geri Tyler, a cousin of Lisa Welchel's character Blair Warner, from 1980 to 1984.
According to her book's publisher, Jewell's memoir will also detail her drug addiction, tax problems, and marriage problems.
