Any outburst over weight i might cherish. additionally, it might be nice to work out an actress have a workload meltdown. So probably at 2:00 a few A-lister asserting, "I cannot deal with this s**t anymore." simply because i like whilst actors cannot care for an ordinary workday, and so they imagine within the afternoon is like hour of darkness, so i might like to see someone storming to their automobile, exhausted simply because they have installed a grueling four-hour workday of claiming 3 strains and texting their nanny. Then it is perhaps off to a bootleg affair. on the best of my want record will be following a rapper or a soccer participant over to his child mama's condominium the place a screaming fit ensues to the purpose the place an individual, probably me, has to anonymously dial 911, after which I take a pair photographs, and that i turn into an unannounced big name witness later on the trial, coming into Joan Collins-style in a smashing hat. after which on the finish of the day it is a fit around of clubbing with Janice Dickinson, after which at the manner domestic we visit the Beverly Glen pharmacy and run into Paula Abdul. All 3 people secretly take our small white-paper pharmacy baggage and positioned them at the back of our backs and make uncomfortable small talk.
