In this success, Mindy also got a role as Natalie Green in the sitcom “Facts of Life.” There she starred alongside Nancy McKeon, Lisa Whelchel and Molly Ringwald.

Most recently, she played the role of Dylan’s mother in “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Zelda in “A Cinderella Christmas,” Thelma in the ongoing “Hollywood Dirt,” and an air traffic controller in the television series “Fly” from 2018.
She is one of the most famous American voice entertainers for her role as the voice of Velma Dinkley in the Scooby-Doo franchise (animation and video games) from 2002-2015. Notwithstanding Scooby-Doo, she played the role of Nancy Francis’ voice in the animated series “The Kids from Room 402” (2002-2006), Ms. Whisp in “Kim Possible” (2003), and the librarian in “Dexter’s Laboratory” (2003), Natalie Green in “Family Guy” and Velma Dinkley/Ticket Girl in “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.”

Is Mindy Cohn Gay? Does She Have a Wife or Husband?
Mindy Cohn has kept her private life moderately quiet. Although she always dreamed of starting a family, her total concentration on her career has fundamentally ruined the realization of this dream.
The actress has two meters tall with brown hair (which is sometimes dyed blonde and purple). She has never been married and has no children. Her single status and feelings for the LGBT community have warded off rumors of her lesbianism. Until April 5, 2016, she went to Twitter to deny such rumors and accusations.
Rumors about sexuality (gay or straight) have not the slightest bit prevented her from supporting the LGBT community. Mindy was most recently on the show “Gay for Play” hosted by RuPaul after watching the music/film “Grease” in 1978. She admitted that she had masturbated. She also publicly showed her support for her partner Geri Jewell (who played the role of Geri Tyler), star of “Facts of Life.”
Geri Jewell recently emerged as a lesbian in her book “I’m Walking As Straight As I Can.” She openly refers to herself as a “Fag Hag” (a woman usually seen around gay and bisexual men or has relational relationships with them).
Most would agree that the jury is still talking about her sexuality. She also has left fans and viewers alike in limbo.
