They're all great looking women who would have been great sales reps for pharmaceutical companies and married well if their acting careers failed. So, not a big gamble for any of them to major in theater.

The biyatch cannot act to save her life. We have a 35-year catfight/rivalry going back to our days as child actresses in New Jersey. Let's just say she and her mom weren't exactly ethical. I was then and still am, a better actress. And Harvard is a better school than Princeton.

Laurel "Plutogirl" Kornfeld, Middle East Studies, Harvard University. A milion times the actress that No Talent Shields will ever be!
