This is Brigitte. She's from Philly, born in the 60's with dreams of a fabulous life where she can make it as a model. She years for clothes, designers and flashbulbs.
But, for the past 30 years, she's been in a relationship that kept her dreams far from reach. Until today when she decided that she couldn't deal with the situation. And she left.
On the street, she ran into my most amazing and wonderful friend Elizabeth, who decided to bring her home. Walking down the street, Brigitte confided to E all her dreams. E, being an optimist and a true friend to anyone, told Brigitte not to let anyone stop her.
That advice came none too soon for as E & B turned the corner and came down the street, the neighbours saw them and started to make comments. Other neighbours joined in. And then, as luck would have it, she ran into her past "friends" - the one she wanted to leave Philly for.
But E was able to sweet talk them all and they even helped B into the house. And now she's here. Waiting for me to tell her stories about Hollywood, dressing up, and west coast dreams.
She's ready for the big time.
