Doxy's Daybook: A friday in two acts
Call me Roz. All of my fans do…
Rosalind "Roz" Hayes was born to be a star, so when she chased her passion from her daddy’s little clapboard church to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, she expected to see her name in lights over the big city. But Broadway’s dark and dreary without the sparkling Julliard credentials to brighten the way.
Determined to let nothing keep her from her dreams, Roz writes a play of her own: a one-woman show where naughty fantasies are spun into filthy realities for private audiences throughout the city. A show so wildly successful, it’s been running for twelve years straight.
Until this Friday, when Roz becomes a costar in someone else’s production.
Can our talented actress rise to the occasion, or will stage fright bring the curtains down once and for all?
Different shades of gray
It started with a favor…
When aspiring model Charlene Roberts is running late for an audition, she begs her reliable sister to stand in for her at the casting for the reality show Free Money. Of course Charlotte, a.k.a. Charlie, can’t say no. She could never say no to Charlene, whose agent believes a television appearance will boost her modeling career. Free Money is much like all contemporary dating shows: twenty hot women living in a mansion doing everything they can to catch the eye of one filthy-rich bachelor.
And that bachelor is the media’s favorite bad boy, the insanely sexy Jake Logan. The thirty-something business tycoon only wants one thing—to get his parents to stop meddling in his love life. What better way than to be trapped in a house with gorgeous women for two months, right? He’s already done the relationship thing, and has no intention of doing it again. That is, until he meets Charlie… who he thinks is a model named Charlene.
