Everyone's Favorite Long Islanders

Like many other 17 year old male Long Islanders at the time, I had a minor obsession with "The Long Island Lolita," Amy Fisher back in the early 1990's. Well, Amy went away for awhile, then resurfaced a few years back when she got out of prison. She landed a job as a columnist for the The Island Ear, and appeared on Oprah Winfrey last year to talk about the whole ordeal (and to promote her autobiography). Meanwhile, Joey and Mary Jo divorced, with Joey he moving out to Hollywood to try and pursue an acting career. So far, not much has happened there.

Well, I guess the trio feels they haven't received enough publicity, because they've gotten together to plan a TV reunion!

"It's been nearly 15 years, so it's time to just put it behind us," Fisher, now 31, told the New York Post.

Why is it that some people think the best way to "put something behind them," is to appear on national television to talk about it?
