Any outburst over weight i might cherish. additionally, it'd be nice to determine an actress have a workload meltdown. So possibly at 2:00 a few A-lister announcing, "I cannot deal with this s**t anymore." simply because i like while actors cannot care for a standard workday, they usually imagine within the afternoon is like nighttime, so i might like to see a person storming to their motor vehicle, exhausted simply because they have installed a grueling four-hour workday of claiming 3 traces and texting their nanny. Then it is probably off to a bootleg affair. on the most sensible of my want checklist will be following a rapper or a soccer participant over to his child mama's condo 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 photos, 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 luggage and placed them at the back of our backs and make uncomfortable small talk.
