"Honey. Time marches on, and eventually it is marching across your face."

It's been 24 years since Dolly Parton as Truvy Jones uttered those words in Steel Magnolias. Time has indeed marched on, but now, according to People Magazine, the Steel Magnolias house is for sale. Shield your faces for the oncoming gay gasps!

The historic house and everything inside is being put on the auction block on Oct. 26, antique furniture and all.

Built in 1840, the Natchitoches, LA (central Louisiana between Shreveport and Alexandria) house served as a hospital during the civil war and recently as a bed-and-breakfast. It has 5,900 feet of living space, 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, a grand staircase, several fireplaces, a separate three-car garage with its own 800-square-foot apartment, a swimming pool, portico and patio. The property was listed a year ago with an asking price of between $949,000 to $1.175 million.
