Glam and Gloss
What's it like being a contract girl? In my limited view, being a contract girl is like being in a polygamist marriage: We get involved because there is a mutual attraction that doesn't quite resemble true love (the company is attracted to our waist-to-hip ratios and marketability, we are attrac...

It's Like Watching Hot Dogs Being Made

It's Like Watching Hot Dogs Being Made
