Fussy starlet is richer than you think

Fussy starlet is richer than you think

Lackluster Girl (LG) doesn’t have the best reputation among people who work behind the scenes.

The actress can be overly fussy over the slightest inconveniences. Her snootiness, they say, seem unfounded. After all, the attention she gets from preening on social media has yet to translate into actual TV or movie success.

As it turned out, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

One time, LG arrived in a shoot with her mom in tow. As LG’s hair and makeup were getting done in the dressing room, the stylists tried to engage in small talk and lighthearted banter with the mom. They complimented LG’s good looks and congratulated her for her projects.

“I bet you guys are now rich!” one of the stylists playfully teased LG’s mom.

“Rich-er,” she said dryly, almost haughtily.

And the room fell silent.
