From the moment I first read The Baby-Sitters Club #1: Kristy’s Great Idea what seems like a zillion years ago, I was hooked. I devoured the BSC books, reading all about Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, Dawn, Mallory, and Jesse: back before I had “girls,” these ladies were my girls. So I pretty much happily squealed and shrieked when I found this article discussing the likely present-day whereabouts of the club members (you know, if they were real):
Well obviously Kristy is a lesbian. She and her partner, Tori, started up a gay softball league when they moved to Baltimore in 1999, which Kristy coaches. Reminds her of her old days with The Krushers! I guess now we know how she really felt about Bart.
Tori and Kristy met while doing Teach for America. Kristy is active in the Baltimore public school system where she works in administrative policy.
Kristy reconnected briefly with her estranged father, Michael, who owns a small bar and grill just outside Boston. She stopped communication with him after learning that he had borrowed money from Kristy’s brother Sam, which he said he needed for an operation. He then squandered the money and never paid Sam back.
Tori works at Archiver’s and is forever trying to get Kristy more involved in her scrapbooking.
