Oh man...imagine...just imagine, that one person who made your life hell back in secondary school, is now going to marry your brother/sister???? ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL NOOOOOOOOOOO~~~~~~~~
This is going to happen to Marni, a successful, confident PR exec who's into upscale fashion, good-looking guys and being part of the "in" crowd. Thing is, she didn't have such a rosy past. In high school, she was THE geekette (that's a female geek, by the way), she wore braces,had no fashion sense, and was unfortunately the school mascot for all her high school games, and she had the nickname "Moo". If being her won't attract bullies, I don't know what will.
|Marni, played by Kristen Bell. A far cry from her bimbotic comedic role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, eh? =D|
For those of you still unfamiliar, she's THAT narrator in Gossip Girl who always start the show with "XOXO, Gossip Girl"!!!! YUP THAT'S KRISTEN BELL!!!!!!!
She's heading home for her brother's wedding when *horrors* she found out that her brother's fiancee is none other than that b-i-a-t-c-h who made her high school life hell - Joanna, the cheerleader captain and prom queen who spent her free time bullying Marni, and enlisted her popular friends to pull cruel pranks on her in front of EVERYONE in school (I meant it when I said biatch~)
|Joanna, played by Odette Yustman|
Then Joanna's aunt Ramona enters the picture and Marni's mum Gail finds herself face-to-face with HER OWN arch rival! The twist is this: Gail used to be THE cheerleader captain, prom queen, homecoming queen, class president...yada yada...while Ramona used to play 2nd fiddle to. Now Ramona is listed as one of Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women who owns a chain of hotels, while Gail is just happy as a homemaker, that is, until Ramona shows up...

Who wore it better? Bring on the claws man!
Personally, I hail from a girls'school. Bitch fights aplenty? Maybe I'm oblivious, but I haven't gotten into any. Or maybe because it's a Chinese girls' school which happens to be prestigious, so discipline is there, and virtues are in place. Physical bullies? Nope, didn't see them. What I DID encounter, plenty of times, were verbal bullies. I was often gossipped about back in high school, and people would spread strange unheard-of rumours about me and getting others to dislike me as much as these girls do. (Oh it happened even more fervently when I was in the airline due to my so-called celebrity status then~ Maybe it's just me...*shrugs*) And when I say strange, I meant the kind that would make the gossiped-to raise eyebrows and go "Who are you talking about??? Silver? She's not like what you made her out to be what..." if these people personally knew me. Many times, I've found out who these reputation-burners are from mutual friends (the gossiper usually had no idea me and the said party were friends), and honestly, though they irk me cos all the while I had nothing against them while they were trying to poison my reputation and name. Best thing was? Usually I don't know these girls personally at all. *rolls eyes*
And honestly, if I should see any of them again, or should they *sighs* become my in-law SOMEHOW, I'll let it go. Because I'm so confident that once they know me, they'll like me. Lol!!! What? I'm a nice friendly person okay?? Let it go, and things will be easier for me. I will even try to like that person, since if my brother likes her, there must be something about her that's attractive and positive. The thing about humans is this - once people feel that you like them, they will like you too. Doesn't apply to stalkers and their subjects though, but that principle is true in most cases. I will be nice, then they'll feel bad and come to my side. Smart right!? I never liked rivalry, especially unpleasant ones, so getting involved in one won't be on my agenda.
But how about you guys? School bullies? I heard of a friend hitting a famous local celebrity's sister because she was so cocky and said things like "You know who I am not? I am so-and-so's sister!" I can't even differentiate who's the bully here. Lol.
