Dream gal’s freedom is kin’s nightmare
Just in time for the holidays. Dream Gal gifted herself with a posh new pad.
At last, DG is free from meddlesome relatives—specifically, Assertive Parent.
Well, DG’s newfound independence is a constant cause of concern for AP.
We can’t really blame AP. DG has always been headstrong and, well, quite rebellious. DG’s rather sketchy love life also gives AP incessant nightmares.
DG, however, is determined to maintain her privacy.

File under B: Short for Banned!
Industry Insiders now avoid Enigmatic Hunk.
They wanted to hire EH for a small production. EH had the temerity to quote a mind-boggling six-figure rate that was way too steep.
IIs scoffed at EH’s talent fee, which would eat up the budget for the entire project.
