A Tale of Two Young Women

Tuesday, February 5, 2008

Both blonde, both pretty. But one admitted stealing cookie money from a nine-year Girl Scout while the second is through to Hollywood on American Idol.

Although Simon rolled his eyes over the Wellington beauty pagent winner who tried out in Atlanta, she has been focused and dedicated to achieving her goals. On tonight's episode, she got one of the gold tickets to Hollywood.

Today the so-confessed thief spent her 18th birthday being arrested and booked. In an interview that aired last week, she actually laughed over how easy it had been to steal the money. Unbelievable. Somehow, after hearing her laugh, I don't think she stands a chance of redemption, but here's hoping she gets some help.

But as to the bright note of the day, all the best to our local girl in the Hollywood try-outs. Make us proud! :) Carol
