The Wannabe Socialite

Sophia is a wanna be socialite. I say wannabe because this city, not the place that really caters to socialites.
Sophia has watched too many gossip shows and read too many fashion magazines. She's barely 5 foot 2 inches tall, 28 years old and native. Her hair is the only thing that really has people stopping to look. It's her glory.
She has a few minor issues, like drugs. Sophia has bought into the idea that to be someone you have to be doing someone who is doing someone etc. She has her dope dealer on speed dial. No pun intended.

My sister the Goddess has been friends with Sophia for going on 13 years. And my sister the Goddess has cleaned up Sophia's messes more then once. She has driven her to rehab and back more then once.
Sophia tried being a singer when she was a teenager. It didn't work. It didn't work because Sophia can't carry a tune if it was in a lunch pail. Now she's trying to be an actress. It seems to be keeping her out of rehab but she's only doing community theater.
She keeps telling us all that she will make it big one day.

None of us are really holding our breath.

I made the mistake of working on a project with Sophia few years ago. She kept making me promises that never saw any results. She kept hiring her girlfriends because they were pretty.
Sophia and I are not really friends anymore, we only keep in touch once a year on Facebook.
