Behind the curtain

Braving blinding camera flashes from behind the dark oversized diamond-studded glares; dodging paparazzi who chase her round the clock seeking titbits of her clandestine affairs.

Strutting down the red carpet in sky-high Christian Louboutin(s), flaunting perfectly bronzed décolletage in long curve-hugging velveteen(s).

Smokey eyelids; lips painted with the deepest shade of crimson; wavy locks gathered up in French-style high buns.

Her beautiful face, with a carefully crafted smile, staring back from the covers of glitzy celeb mags, asking readers to donate funds to her charitable organizations.

    1. Thanks, but I liked your take on the prompt better and again I couldn’t comment on your blog 😦 This time I tried from my phone, but the message didn’t go.


      1. Oh really, again!🤦
        And I wonder why coz I haven’t changed anything on my blog.. Plus, there’s nothing in the spam folder too!😕

        I remember, when this happened with me I also did drop a mail to Akismet support.. You may wanna try that and see what they have to say about it (that is if you have it installed at first place)😕
        I am so sorry that this is happening – I know its really frustrating!😕
