Herc Is Smitten With Showtime’s New Naked Billie Piper Show SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL!!
I am – Hercules!!
25-year-old Billie Piper, who also plays the hottest of the “Doctor Who” sidekicks, gets naked assaying the title role in Showtime’s “Secret Diary of a Call Girl.” Great news, as there are few people we more want to see naked than Billie Piper.
Piper plays Hannah. Belle is Hannah’s hooker name.
The show works for lots of reasons, not the least of which is Hannah is an extremely likable hooker. She’s funny, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, she’s kind to her customers (even the ones who don’t deserve it), she seems to love her work and she has a great work ethic. She reminds me more than a little of Inara Serra, the gorgeous space-hooker on “Firefly.”
Crucially, Belle is an expensive hooker. A recent university grad, she doesn’t have a history of childhood sexual abuse, she’s not addicted to narcotics, and she doesn’t have a real pimp. She has an “agent” named Stephanie, who takes 40 percent off the top and can be more than a little rude, but generally proves an efficient procurer of wealthy clients. Belle made north of ₤100,000 last year.
Based on a blog-turned-book said to be written by a real high-priced London call girl, “Secret” teems in its early episodes with fascinating and surprisingly authentic-sounding details of Belle’s trade.
Hannah apparently got into hooking because it was more fun and paid much much much better than office temping. She seems to like most of her clients but also revels in the challenges of the job and in her skill-set, which includes a faculty for discovering and exploiting her clients’ psychosexual triggers.
Conflict comes with trying to balance her professional life with her personal, which proves more difficult when her ex-lover (now best friend) in a later episode announces his intent to marry his new girlfriend.
The opening credits, set to an Amy Winehouse tune, are supercool.
“Diary” garnered the highest ratings ever for an original series on Britain’s ITV2 late last year, and has already received orders for second and third seasons.
Entertainment Weekly gives it an “A-minus” and says:
… any viewers of Secret Diary of a Call Girl will swear this is a slippery male fantasy. I say take Belle at her word, in her world, and you will find a rather fascinating drama. … The series shows the darker side of Belle's work without getting into that porno-punishing crap so often disguised as morality lessons. The series, like Belle, is far too smart to succumb to such an average attitude.
TV Guide says:
… that rare show that can balance sophisticated humor with graphic vulgarity. It’s titillating without being truly trashy, because it also has heart—for that, thank Billie Piper (formerly of Doctor Who), who brings wit and warmth, but also a crisp and unpredictable edge, to the tricky role of Belle by night/Hannah by day. … Her torrid misadventures have a comically surreal quality, and yet the character is grounded in a pragmatic realism. …
Time Magazine says:
… most fascinating simply as a story about work. In TV comedies, the nuts-and-bolts details of jobs tend to fade into the background. In Call Girl, you learn that prostitution at Belle's level comes with the same demands and annoyances as any other career catering to the high-maintenance wealthy. The show is, in a way, not about sex but about making it (so to speak) in the service economy. …
The New York Times says:
… X-rated chick lit with lots of attitude but not much affect. …
The Los Angeles Times says:
… "Call Girl's" greatest flaw is not that it's exploitative but that it's surprisingly dull. … If anyone can breathe new life into the world's oldest stereotype, it's Piper, last seen in "Doctor Who." With that luscious angular face and knowing sidelong glance, her Belle is quite convincing, to us and we suspect herself, as she explains not only the allure of prostitution but also its various rules and foibles. …
The Chicago Tribune says:
… It tries for depth once in a while, but the occasional moody, wordless montages of the show’s title character, Belle (“Doctor Who’s” Billie Piper), are just self-indulgent, not indicators of complexity. The real pleasures of this half-hour show come from its sly sense of humor and from Belle’s practical yet adventurous approach to her job. …
The San Francisco Chronicle says:
… an intriguing and eminently watchable half hour that has a lot going for it … The series works well on a number of levels. Piper will no doubt be the new nerd queen for sci-fi fans in this revealing portrait (though, truth be told, the nudity is limited, though present). She's excellent as Belle because she has a dry wit about her. …
The Denver Post says:
… The story as adapted to TV is cheeky, funny, intelligent, nasty and boasts the presence of distinguished actress Cheri Lunghi as Belle's madam. …
The Detroit Free Press says:
… if brisk, eloquent writing, and sharp, ironic humor don't bother you, "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" is one of the most imaginative and dryly witty grown-up shows to come along in a while.…
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says:
… As she charms clients, haggles with her madam and tries to hide her secret life from her family, Belle is such an intriguing yet understandable character that her story would be riveting even without the sex scenes, which are stylized and sensual, even comical — and abundant. With "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," Showtime lives up to its promise to give subscribers TV worth paying for. …
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says:
… an intelligent and funny comedy/drama … I’ve seen eight episodes and highly recommend them to those who can appreciate this sort of show, especially when Belle frequently breaks the fourth wall to address the camera. The sex scenes are tastefully filmed and edited and not gratuitous. Pursuers of the purely prurient should seek elsewhere. The occasional bare breast or naked backside hardly even registers. …
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says:
… both addictively entertaining and purely fantastic. …
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says:
… Future episodes elevate the Belle and Ben relationship to a more complicated place, which bears some promise and may give "Secret Diary" the distinction it lacks in early episodes. …
The Hollywood Reporter says:
… You would hope the result might be thoughtful and revealing, but the series is really just a tame peep show for fans who think Piper is a cutie. … Piper milks what she can from trite dialogue by raising her eyebrows to the camera or simply leering. …
… The show has a smart approach similar to that of AMC's conman drama "Hustle," playing off staid British manners and a star character at peace with living on the wrong side of the law. … Piper is a commanding presence …
Showtime sent AICN all eight first-season episodes. You can watch the first two right now.

This has been on in Canada for a while. She is a mega babe!
June 16, 2008, 1:05 a.m. CST
This has aired all the way through in the U.K., Herc. I realize it just came to Showtime, but come on-- You're supposed to be the "TV guy" with all the connections. How is it that other yanks have already seen this and you have not? <p> Yes. It's good. Yes. Piper is hotter as a whore than she was as a chav. Yes, I'll still be cheering her return on Doctor Who-- Maybe moreso know I've seen her in this.
June 16, 2008, 1:42 a.m. CST
But she's not $100,000 a year worth of cute unless you're a REALLY big Doctor Who fan and you're getting the real Piper.<p> Are whores really making this much? Seems hard to believe.
June 16, 2008, 1:55 a.m. CST
June 16, 2008, 1:57 a.m. CST
Seriously... she's a well built woman that makes me laugh my ass off. What more in life does a man need? Knockers? SHE'S GOT'EM! WOO! I may watch this show, but it does look dull.
June 16, 2008, 2:13 a.m. CST
Some 'Ladies of the Night' charge $1,000 per hour. Some $100 an hour. And some charge $10 for 10 mins. There's a sliding rule. L

Like any profession, prostitution has its superstars and its low achievers..but there is serious money to be made if the prostitute has no pimp, is in control of her business, and has loyal customers. I know this 'cos I work for a company that entertains clients - sometimes by wining and dining, and sometimes by the 69-ing.
June 16, 2008, 2:31 a.m. CST
Quite a few Piper fans were angry with her for taking such a negative sleazy role when so many kids so her has a role model after Dr who. Secondly the show is based upon suppoed memoirs of a "real" prostitute who remained anonymous. But their has been suggestions that this person doesnt exist and the books were written by a man. so the ooks and the show are quite divisive and controversila in the UK. IMO its a crap show. Piper is deserving of better and she needs to sack her agent.
June 16, 2008, 2:44 a.m. CST
...just as you're getting to the vinegar stroke, but Piper is very Pregnant at the moment so I suspect the 2nd and 3rd series will have to wait a bit

too bad I don't have Showtime.<p>Didn't Eros Comics do "Secret Diary of a Dominatrix" like ten or fifteen years ago?
June 16, 2008, 3:11 a.m. CST
I just don't get the attraction of Billie, I just don't think she's that hot at all. Plus, her mouth looks weird in the latest season of Doctor Who, like she's had some plastic surgery or something.
June 16, 2008, 3:57 a.m. CST
I've liked her ever since she did the Charlotte Church show looking hot with glasses. Shes pregnant but a body double will be used for the naked scenes for the next series
June 16, 2008, 4:31 a.m. CST
I couldn't give two shits about her, but she does some damn dirty stuff in this..
June 16, 2008, 4:31 a.m. CST
There were the pervs - and not many - watching a tedious show with a very dodgy view of whoring for the T&A - and there was the rest of the country pointing out it was kak. It got massive press because of Piper in underwear and a second series - but viewers were few and far between, even for the minor freeview channel it started on. Big start then fell apart. No wit, no class, poor acting, bad writing. Watch only if male and can't access your normal online porn.
June 16, 2008, 4:38 a.m. CST
I'm having trouble reconciling "“Diary” garnered the highest ratings ever for an original series on Britain’s ITV2" with "viewers were few and far between, even for the minor freeview channel it started on".
June 16, 2008, 4:43 a.m. CST
just in lots of sexy outfits and stuff. So if you're tuning in to specifically see Billie's T&P then you'll be disappointed. <p> Oh, and highest rated ever on ITV2 is a backhanded complement.<p> Bionic Woman was a ratings smash on ITV2 (a minority digital channel) with 2.2 million viewers. <p> On the terrestrial channels, home grown fair like Eastenders and Coronation Street can pull TEN TIMES that audience.
June 16, 2008, 4:45 a.m. CST
I can't find anywhere on that site to watch them. There are a couple very brief previews, and that seems to be it to me.
June 16, 2008, 4:49 a.m. CST
its already been on brit tv...its only new to showtime...and the show is ok, but kinda boring, and when does piper really ever get nude?
June 16, 2008, 4:53 a.m. CST
and fell off after that. <p> Typical viewing audience in the UK on a Saturday evening is around 20 million. The bulk of this is split between BBC1 and ITV.
June 16, 2008, 4:54 a.m. CST
That's worth mentioning up front.
June 16, 2008, 4:58 a.m. CST
ok, so this isn't "showtime's" show, it's just being aired by showtime in the US?
June 16, 2008, 5:08 a.m. CST
herc is promoting this as billie piper gets nude...i saw the first 3 epis, and while she wears some nice outfits, we dont even get to see as much of a nipple...and honestly, im not sure why the critics are raving...its an ok show, but why not do something original based on american callgirls...such as the dc madam, or anyone else with a big name here in the states...the amount of hypocracy surrounding prostitution in the states is amazing...they dont care about it as much in britain, so where is the danger...and with the economy the way it is now, watch for more girls to go into the biz...even when the economy blows, the biz of sex always remains very lucrative...i hear all the flights out of los angeles and nyc to the repug convention are booked with the best girls
June 16, 2008, 5:11 a.m. CST
"home grown fair like Eastenders and Coronation Street can pull TEN TIMES that audience (of 2.2 million)". In this decade? I thought the best performing shows were pulling ratings like 10 million, maybe 12. I am probably wrong though.
June 16, 2008, 5:56 a.m. CST
She looks like a shaved monkey man! Really you want to get out more,there`s real woman out there too you know!
June 16, 2008, 6:23 a.m. CST
Because you know that'd pretty much kill off half the geek population with one episode... lol
June 16, 2008, 6:48 a.m. CST
im not a perv or anything, seriously, but there is some piper nudity in this if you watdch beyond the first three episodes. girl on girl action with her and some girl from the bill. It was the only one I actually saw - luck of the irish.
June 16, 2008, 6:53 a.m. CST
You're pretty much right. In a normal week in Autumn/Winter, the highest-rating shows will be Coronation Street and EastEnders with about 10 million. The highest-rating show this week was the final of The Apprentice with 8.9 million. The highest-rating show so far this year is, I believe, the final of Britain's Got Talent with 13.1 million. Doctor Who regularly pulls in over 7 million.
June 16, 2008, 7:12 a.m. CST
it's 100,000 GBP not USD, and yes there are some escorts that make that much, a good example would be the one that led to Eliot Spitzer's downfall, she got 4000 USD a night, that's 200,000+ USD a year, working weekends.
June 16, 2008, 7:21 a.m. CST
When do we get to see her naked?
June 16, 2008, 7:25 a.m. CST
I completely ignored it when it was on
June 16, 2008, 7:59 a.m. CST
True Blood and Fringe are both out there on bt...anyone watched it? It is the season for all pilots to leak online!!

non-damaged goods hooker is complete. Just this description is laughable when compared to anything in the real world: <p> Crucially, Belle is an expensive hooker. (not unusual) A recent university grad (please!), she doesn’t have a history of childhood sexual abuse (highly unlikely), she’s not addicted to narcotics (hah!), and she doesn’t have a real pimp (ooo, girl power!). She has an “agent” named Stephanie, who takes 40 percent off the top and can be more than a little rude, but generally proves an efficient procurer of wealthy clients. Belle made north of ₤100,000 last year. (Wow, the fantasy continues!) And don't tell me it's a victimless crime, I've known of too many families broken by this crap.

This show is clearly science fiction, because the notion that any prostitute who looks like Billie Piper could get more than $5 from any client for her “services” is simply deranged, and anyone who thinks this creature is “hot” is either A.) legally blind or B.) legally insane. Billie Piper is possibly the single ugliest lead actresses I’ve ever seen on a TV show. Hell, you could cast her in a “Planet of the Apes” remake and you wouldn’t even have to put prosthetic makeup on her. Great Leaping Jebus, folks, this girl is FUGLY. She wasn’t just beaten with an ugly stick – apparently Geordi re-wired the Enterprise’s main navigational deflector to broadcast high-impulse Ugly-tomic radiation, and she took a full dose right in the head. Her bleached-blonde hair, black eyeliner, Minnie Driver chipmunk cheeks, player piano teeth and Cockney accent make her amazingly repugnant, especially to American audiences. (I wonder if British audiences would think an American “trailer trash” chick like, oh, the current Britney Spears, is remotely appealing? Then again, the Brits have Amy Winehouse, who went from being almost-semi-attractive to a skanky crack-whore trainwreck faster than any celebrity I’ve ever seen.) Billie Piper needs to go to France and hook up with those doctors who did that face transplant, stat, and you people thinking Piper is even remotely humanoid-looking should have your eyes replaced with frozen melon balls, because you’re clearly not using them.
June 16, 2008, 8:22 a.m. CST
And if all else fails, make a tenuous link to a Joss Whedon project...

I thought Fringe was OKish, the lead is kinda stiff and there are to many TV moments, still pretty promising

I've already seen the series as well, and there were several times that she did some honest-to-God no body-double nudity...so nice, it has a special place on the hard drive. ;)
June 16, 2008, 9:03 a.m. CST
$100,000 a year for high priced hookers is not unbelievable. in fact i would expect there are several who make more than that. strippers alone can take in over $1000 a night and all they do is dry hump and give kiddie hand jobs.
June 16, 2008, 9:21 a.m. CST
They should just incorporate her pregnancy into the show. In the first season she is nude on several occasions. Are they allowed to show nipples on US television? I can't believe they can't give us nudity on Galactica. I bet Tricia Helfer would have gone with it, she's done topless shoots! I'm such a sad pathetic fuck.
June 16, 2008, 9:29 a.m. CST
How does dick taste? Just wondering, I would love to see what you pork at the end of the night and your calling Piper ugly LMAO.
June 16, 2008, 9:47 a.m. CST
probably all body doubles or soft lights.
June 16, 2008, 9:48 a.m. CST
Sorry to say, they do exist. Many do have low self-esteem, but to that I say (1) many women period have low self-esteem for a variety of reasons, and (2) if we weren't so repressed we may get more women with confidence to be hookers. <p><p> Attractive and skilled women can make $500/hour and up without any pimp (or even agent). Why wouldn't you choose that job if you could get it?
June 16, 2008, 10:56 a.m. CST
I really thought the show was dreadful. <p> Which episode does she get naked in?

I've been happily married to a beautiful lady for almost 16 years now, and unlike you, I get great sex for free, and not from Madame Palm and her Five Daughters. Sorry you didn't win this argument, but thanks for playing, and you can tell the rest of us how dick tastes, fuckface.
June 16, 2008, 11:07 a.m. CST
There is no argument. beauty is an opinion. Either you think Billie Piper is hot or you don't. You have not won a darn thing, so quit flattering yourself.

You have a cool screen name, but NASA just released a 2-year, peer-reviewed, multimillion-dollar study that conclusively proves, using the most sensitive testing instruments and rigorous scientific data, that Billie Piper’s looks can make milk curdle, wilt plants, kill small amphibians within a range of 5 meters, make small children cry, and instantly mitigate the effects of Viagra within minutes. So, who do I believe – some dude on the Internet, or the greatest engineers at NASA? The defense rests.
June 16, 2008, 12:27 p.m. CST
Because Piper is indeed hot, unless you prefer women that look more like teenaged boys or airbrushed Barbie dolls, which I suspect you do. My wife of 16 years agrees. So, too, does a large part of the population who supported her career, made her a star, and breathlessly watched her in tight jeans for two seasons on Doctor Who, even if she was playing a chav. <p> You don't "win" arguments about something that is, indeed, subjective. Your opinion is your opinion, and in MY oh-so-humble opinion, it doesn't mean dick when it comes to beauty. You're a poor judge of looks if you think Piper isn't attractive. I bet your type looks more like Jessice Simpson or some other cookie-cutter bimbo, whom I don't give two glances toward. You want ugly? Look no further than Sarah Michelle Gellar, Brooke Burke, or the Pussycat Dolls. Now THOSE women are ugly by the sheer virtue of being as plain as a Nilla Wafer cookie. You could have pulled their faces out of a box of Cracker Jacks, for how common and bland and plastic they are. <p> I'd take a single night with Billie Piper over a year with a fake, bland slattern like Jessica Simpson. <p> To each their own, but it sure says a lot about your character that you feel the need to attack a woman's looks in such a violent, almost misogynistic manner. It's almost as if you have an aversion to women that don't resemble inanimate sex dolls. . . <p> Tell your wife "Hi" for me the next time you blow her up.
June 16, 2008, 12:36 p.m. CST
first off, one of my clients is a former madam, whose girls made well above 100k per year...and it should not be a crime...it should be legal and taxed...and it wasnt prostitution that destroyed the families, it was the wife or hubby

Yeeeup- it's totally fictional alright.

Dude, jokes aside -- don't assume you know my taste in women because I don't like *one* Cockney bimbo who looks like an albino chimp (as several other people here have also attested.) And don't try to guess or tell me what kind of women you think I like, because you're way off. For the record, all the women you mentioned also do nothing for me (Gellar, Simpson, Burke -- I have no fucking idea who the Pussycat Dolls are; never seen them.) Who do I find beautiful? Catherine Zeta-Jones. Penelope Cruz. Winona Ryder. Aishwarya Rai. Halle Berry. Julianne Moore. Rebecca Romajn (one of the few Hollywood blondes with interesting looks.) About 100 Bollywood actresses who could stop traffic, while Billie Piper would get ignored in a Texas biker bar. Actual women, not skinny waifs or talentless blonde singers. If you find Billie Piper's "Eraserhead/lady in the radiator" balloon cheeks and protruding player-piano teeth and bad skin attractive, then hey, dude, go for it, but to me, she's genuinely the most unappealing excuse for an ingenue I've ever seen in a TV show. (And props to you for using the word "slattern" in a sentence, but I would've applied that to Piper, had I thought of it first.) As for my wife, she laughed at your statement and suggested that you need to get a life -- and both she and I fail to find any "violence" in my statements about Piper's looks -- merely asthetic judgments. Sorry if this seriously damages your worldview, but I think I'll live.
June 16, 2008, 1:16 p.m. CST
How's that for a polite euphemism? Speaking from two years' worth of hobbying--and I'm single, for those who care--I've been lucky in that about 95% of the encounters have been either good or otherworldly. Two or three of the ladies could probably have been legitimate models; though interestingly the best performance has consistently come from one who physically maxes out at about a 7.5 out of 10. But what an appetite, holy Christ...clearly she enjoys what she does! I don't have Showtime, but I admit I'm curious to see how accurately they protray this sort of thing...and regarding exceptionally beautiful women, I like the Admiral's list very much but commend one more name to everyone's attention: SHEETAL SHETH. It may not exactly roll off the tongue, but this woman is STUNNING, especially if you have a weakness for eyes that look as if they can see through you! Enjoy...http://www.sheetalsheth.com/photogallery.htm

saw the whole series, very good. Loved the attention to detail and her little asides. My fave episode was where she had the 4some with her best friend. and 2 clients.
June 16, 2008, 1:52 p.m. CST
When she hooked up with Chris Evans, Billie Piper became gutter trash. Sorry to all her fans out there.

June 16, 2008, 3:15 p.m. CST
While she doesn't do hustler type nudity, she does do several nude scene that are "carefully" shot, so it's more like a lite playboy nudity than porn nudity. There are few times she's shown having sex which are fairly entertaining. <P><P>On the whole, it's an OK series, but not nearly enough nudity to fit the bill for most guys.
June 16, 2008, 3:53 p.m. CST
I really enjoyed it, very interesting, great casting. any chance of a review Herc?

She has a great body and an attractive face. She is kinda weird in a geeky sort of way, too, so she is probably cool to hang out with, to boot.

Billie Piper is hot in her own right. She has a killer smile and a killer ass at the very least. Come to think of it, Gene Simmons' daughter looks like she could be Billie's younger sister.
June 16, 2008, 6:38 p.m. CST
Tried watching when Showcase started playing it up here in Canada ages ago. Didn't last one episode.

Find a good photo of Laura Dan Giacomo's face - that muzzle, those teeth, those bushy eyebrows and subhumanly low hairline. Squint and she looks exactly like a Planet of the Apes character. And that's HOT!<p>Now Billie Piper may have more bumps and pits than we're used to seeing - it's like all the cosmetic surgeons in show biz are so busy with the implants, lipo, collagen and botox that they've forgotten how to remove warts and unsightly moles. But to say her lips are too thick or her teeth too big - bugger off. She's adorable. I just want to nuzzle her ear and pick fleas out of her hair.

On the terrestrial channels, home grown fair like Eastenders and Coronation Street can pull TEN TIMES that audience." Bullshit. Those soaps average 8-10 million at best, Eastenders has dropped to 5 million on frequent occasions probably due to the endless misery it portrays. Just admit you prefer naked guys OK ;-)
June 17, 2008, 7:35 a.m. CST
First off, I find Billie Piper attractive. Not smokin'-hot, mind you, but attractive. There's something a bit weird going on with her cheeks and mouth, but the overall effect is not unpleasant. Having said that, to call her the hottest Who companion just boggles my mind, given that she was replaced by Freema Agyeman, who is *smoking* *freaking* *hot*.

Not sure if you realize this, but there are no awards here for bad taste or ignorance. So perhaps you might consider not advertising yours quite so much. Just a thought. The comments about your "wife" are kinda cute though. Maybe if you keep believing it, someday it will come true. Nah...

leaving only the pervs watching the most ridiculous presentation of a prostitute this side of Pretty Woman because it was cheaper than forking over the cash for the pay channels further up the dial. Fanny Hill - also a mediocre sex romp, also set a non-terrestrial record. Notice the connection? Do we think it was artistic merit, mmm? Seriously - I don't have a problem with guys watching this crap. But trying to somehow sell it as quality programming is just a little silly - be proud of your hormones. Don't make excuses.

First, she's really not that attractive. I guess some of you guys levels of attraction are very low. Geezzz, there are tons of hotter average looking women(if I got to say it) out there. If she's considered the hottest woman in England. That place is full of ugly women!<br><br> As for show, I left it on after watching the way better Weeds! And I got say, I wasn't impress by the show or it's star. <br><br> Some of you are getting use to all the mediocre shit out there. But I don't blame you, when it's only mediocre shit that's being made.

how many times does it have to be said - she is naked in it! its around the 4th or 5th episode and involves a threesome with a girl from hard-hitting cop show "The Bill". Hows that for a slice of fried gold?

And although it was a shit show, we did get to see soft-focus Billie writhing around semi-nekkid every week. Personally, I'm a horsey-saddle kind of guy. That shit looked fierce.<P> FIERCE!

Just like they make Dial soap for men, suave for men, heck, even "Men's Pocky"...what a concept huh? I'm willing to give it a...poke.

twist on traditional sexual mores and traditional career personal life balance. Piper's style of humor and vulnerability seem well fitted to a jaded call girl afrad of the day her secret professionall life collides with her public personal life. the previews looked promising. Though I have to agree with BYTor and some of the others, Freema Ageyman is so much hotter than Billie Piper and frankly most other women in the world it aint even close. The Legs, the figure, gorgeous, extraordinary eyes. Billie's got that pout naughty glint thing going, but Freema's the full package, and she seems like she'd be a hell of a fun person to hang with too.
