The Baby-Sitters Club: Where Are They Now?

I saw this link on my Facebook feed yesterday and I knew I had to share it with my readers (who are obvious Baby-Sitters Club fans).

Huffington Post’s The Frenemy writes, “By the time the series ended in 2000, the girls had graduated from middle school at 13. This would make them around 23 now. I decided to catch up with the ladies to see what they had been up to since then….”

Stacey is now a model-slash-actress. Mary Anne dabbles in beauty pageants before moving down to Nashville to focus on her overly-conservative and right-wing life. Claudia continues to embrace the hipster lifestyle. Dawn remains as hippie as ever. Kristy resides in DC where she is working on a political career. Mallory works in publishing. And Jessie? She is clearly ashamed of her past: “Refused to take place in update. Cannot believe she ever lived in Connecticut and worked with a bunch of crazy privileged bitches.”

As funny and relevant to today’s society as these updates are, I couldn’t help but be a bit saddened to see what has become of the group. Yes, I know it is all fictional and meant to be funny, but I am also aware that today’s teenage girls will relate to these updated versions of the BSC more than the original, innocent group that kept so many of us entertained for years.
