In all fairness I also forgot about Molly
(Kinda suppressed most of the reunion material)
Was Val born in Nashville ?
No Valene was born in Husky corners in Tennessee.
In all fairness the moderator introduced Joan/Valene and since Val wasn't the mother of Molly there was no point in mentioning her. It sounded like Charlene was supposed to have been at the event but couldn't make it since her plane got stuck in Nashville. So Joan said the Nashville comment jokingly.
I know I'm being pedantic, but she said Val was the mother of Gary's children, so just a tad inaccurate.
