Happy Birthday Gina/Gia!!!! April 6th

Liver Onion2My real life sister Gina, is the character Gia in The Vampire Dancer Saga.  She is the same age as Vanessa Williams, so I was glad to make them “friends” in Miss Vampire America dances to win the Crown, the 1980s in the Vampire Dancer Saga (Part 1). 

The last meal my sister Gina cooked me was Liver and Onions.  I remember going over to her apartment for a meal cooked by her and then-boyfriend Sam.  They served me Liver with Onions, gravy and rice.  It was SO GOOD!  I licked my plate clean and sopped up the remaining gravy in the pan with some bread!!! I’ve never had Livers & Onions that tasted so good!  I think that Gina cooked them better than my mom, even though my Mom probably taught her how to make it.Mary J2

Gina LOVED music by Mary J. Blige.  But my mom was “old school” and thought that Mary J was a horrible singer.  Mom thought she was a good performer, but said that if you listen to her songs without looking at her, that she was not a great singer.  But I’m glad that my mom let me play “No More Drama” at Gina’s funeral.

Gina was the BEST dancer in our Dance Troupe.  And she was so pretty.  I really envied her looks and wish I looked more like her.

 

 

 

Happy Birthday my beautiful and talented little Sister!  I know that you are dancing and serving up some great Liver & Onions in Heaven!!!  I love you!!!!

Miss Vampire America dances to win the Crown, the 1980s
Copyright 2012

“Hurry up Gia! You don’t want to miss my mom’s piano lesson. We have to finish on time so we can practice our dances for the contest,” said Vanilla. Gia and Vanilla were best friends at Syracuse University. Gia was visiting Vanilla the week before they were due to compete in the Miss Vampire America contest. Gia had won the state contest in Missouri and Vanilla was representing New York.

This was Gia’s first time in a national contest so she was surprised at how friendly the other contestants were. This year’s pageant would feature 13 unlucky competitors. Gia and Vanilla met 10 competitors one night at a pool party 2 days before the big contest:

Creep Kampvand
Susie May
Lynda Savage
Die U-British
Savvy Gavvy
Disgusting Bette
Vivid Wolf
Suzy Can’t Pass Up
Suzy Charlene Backstab
Marla Shrivel

They joked around, had some Margaritas and told everyone which dances they planned to do for the Dance Competition of the contest.

Vivid was going to show her best Cabbage Patch dance moves. Disgusting said she was the queen of the Moonwalk. Both Gia and Marla had the ability to see past and future events. So Marla bragged that one day she will marry The Running Man. Savvy liked doing the Roger Rabbit, Slam Dancing and the Sprinkler. While Vanilla admitted to doing the Robot and the Worm when no one was watching. Each lady took a turn showing off their favorite dances.

But when it was Gia’s time to demonstrate the Electric Slide, she accidentally “glamoured” instead.

Gia began predicting future events during the glamour dance and since Marla was so near their combined supernatural abilities combined and shifted the 12 ladies into an Alternate Universe.

They looked around and noticed they were in a kitchen watching a woman cook some very Soulful Food. The lady’s arm caught on fire and Vivid was the first to react and help her. Fat Momma said, “You feel right at home in this kitchen Vivid”. Vanilla got mad at Vivid because she just remembered when Vivid stole her man. Vivid decided to stay in Fat Momma’s kitchen and told the remaining 11 to press on.

Stop the Presses! Eliana Girard is my new casting choice for Elly Powers! Also new script for Chapter 1 The Vampire Dancer Saga!

Eliana Girard1I take back my casting choice for The Vampire Dancing Saga, Chapter 4, Dancing with Flair at the Fair, the 1930s! A new dancer has arrived on the scene from the last episode of So You Think You Can Dance: ELIANA GIRARD!

Eliana is one of the best dancers on reality TV dance shows in many a moon. I predict so much future success for this very talented dancer. One day she will be in movies just like Julianne Hough, or my favorite dancer of all time: ELEANOR POWELL!

I have been rooting for Eliana since SYTYCD Season 9 started in May of this year.

She was the ABSOLUTE BEST DANCER from last Wednesday’s show. Even Nigel admitted that she was his favorite girl and that was her night. Indeed.

 

Tice Diorio’s Eliana Girard3opening number for the August 22nd show was SPECTACULAR! That was my all time favorite choreography by Tice! His best work, in my humble opinion. His group dance: “The Cool World Stomp” should win an EMMY award! Did you notice that Eliana was the lead dancer in that number?

 

 

I had previously mentioned casting:

Dancer/Actress Character – The Vampire Dancer Saga
Vivian Nixon Elly Powers
Sabra Johnson Phina Brown or Triple T Debs

Now that I have watched Eliana Girard on the August 22nd episode of SYTYCD, I change my casting choices to:

Dancer/Actress Character – The Vampire Dancer Saga
Eliana Girard Elly Powers
Vivian Nixon Phina Brown
Sabra Johnson Triple T Debs

VivianNixon1Vivian Nixon is the SPITTING image, MINI-ME of her famous mom, Debbie Allen, so wouldn’t it make more sense to cast her as Triple T Debs? Maybe not? That would probably freak Vivian out to play her mom and Debbie out to have her daughter playing her.

Here is out next script for Chapter 1, part 1: Dancing Makes You Buff! Another great job by the scriptwriter. It’s great to have a different set of eyes look at your book. I would have never thought to split up the dialogue among the judges. But hey, that’s what scriptwriters are for. To make it make sense as a TV episode or movie scene.

The setting is a large athletic competition. In the stands, the crowd is filled with interesting looking characters: people with cloaks, clothing from various eras of history, hair styles of every shape, size, color and description. The host, BOM TERGERON steps to a podium in a central location on the playing field. As he steps up, the cheering fans quiet.

BOM

Quiet Everyone! Let’s take our places, please.

Dichen LachmanKAR ANNA, BLEN, RUNO, LIGEL NITCHGOW, MURPH MARE and TRIPLE T DEBS all take their places at the judges table. Each seat has a name plate, microphone and clipboard.

BOM

It is time to explain the rules for this very special, year 3000, Vampire Olympics. As you know, the Vampire Olympics occur every ten years. This year’s competition will include the following events:

KAR ANNA

Part 1: Supernatural Protection skills.

Category A: Vampire defense which includes defending oneself against wooden stakes, silver, garlic and decapitation.

Category B: Best Power which will include witchcraft, potions, spells, premonitions and Voodoo.

Category C: Best Shifter which includes mummy, zombie, wolf, ram or hart.

BLENEnver Gjokaj

The four teams who earn the highest scores will be moving on to the semi-finals. Part two of our competition is World Transformations. Each team will be required to go back in time and alter certain events from the way they happened.

RUNO

The remaining three teams will go on to compete for the winner of the 3000 Vampire Olympics. Part three will also be World Transformations, but it will be returning the previously changed events from part two to the way they originally occurred.

LIGEL

Anthony HeadThird place winners will receive a wooden mini-coffin filled with vials of A, B, AB and O blood.

Second place winners will receive purple rhinestone mini-coffins with a built in television.

First place winners will receive a tricked-out black coffin with special vampire sensitive lighting, with a built in entertainment system, laptop pc, kitchenette completely stocked with vials of blood to suit every

LIGEL cont.

preference, full bathroom—and what luxury coffin would be complete without a Voodoo doll head with special powers?

MURPH

Winners from our last competition, the Collins Family, are on hand and have picked this year’s location.

MURPH indicates a large stadium box where we see LA BELLE, JACK, ED, LISA and BARNABY seated.

LaBelle, would you please tell our contestants what time and destination they will be traveling to.

We see LA BELLE step to a microphone situated in the stadium box.

Summer Glau

LA BELLE

I’d love to. Our contestants will be traveling back to the year 1900 to exercise their skills in St. Louis. Each team will have one hour for each of the competitions in part one with ten minutes to prepare.

Each team will first have ten minutes to use their best power to shift them to the time and place of the event. Once there, they must glamour the location so that ordinary citizens are not able to view judges or audience members from the future.

After all judges and audience members have teleported, then each team can start the first competition: Vampire Defense.

BOM

Thank you, LaBelle. Triple T would you explain what will take place once the competition begins?

TRIPLE T

Of course, Bom. The judges will eliminate one of the seven teams during the ten minute intermission after the Vampire Defense competition using a combination of scores and audience votes. The remaining six teams will then go on to the Best Powers competition. After which the judges will eliminate another team using the method previously mentioned. The remaining five teams will compete in the Strongest Shifters competition after which one more team will be eliminated. The remaining four teams will go on to the semi-finals.

LA BELLE has appeared next to the stage where the podium and the judges’ table sit. With her are MEDDLING GRANNY, PRUNES, PIPPA, FEEBLE and PAGEANT.

BOM

Thank you Triple T. Now it should be explicitly understood that no cheating of any kind will be tolerated at this competition. And to ensure that the rules are adhered to, we have a special enforcement team of super witches to oversee this competition. LaBelle, would you like to introduce the Charming Ladies?

The ladies step up to the platform and LaBelle takes the mic.

LA BELLE

I certainly would, Bom. May I present the Special Witch Police for the 3000 Vampire Olympics: Meddling Granny, Prunes, Pippa, Feeble, and Pageant! Aren’t they charming?

BOM

Ladies and Gentlemen, please standby for the lighting of our Olympic Flame.

A torch is passed from team to team. The last team hands the torch on to BOM who lights the cauldron. The crowd goes wild.

The Vampire Dancer Saga back coverNow let’s meeting our contestants! Please give a warm welcome to each of our teams!

First up is the Mutant Weirdos!

As each team is named, they come trotting across the field, wearing shirts with the team name on the front and the contestant’s name on the back. Crowd goes wild as each team is announced.

The Vampire Dancer Saga

The Vampire Dancer Saga Chapter 9 Script: Miss Vampire America Dances to Win the Crown!

VanessaHope you enjoy this brilliant script for Chapter 9

COPYRIGHT 2012: SHALIMAR ALI

Twelve ladies in their twenties wearing sashes and bathing suits all gather around a pool. On the sashes are names like Creep Kampvand, Susie May, Lynda Savage, Savvy Gavvy and Die U-British. Some of the ladies are sitting on the edge of the pool chatting and drinking fruity looking cocktails. Some are standing. Some are sitting on deck chairs. A couple of ladies are leaning against the bar where the drinks are being made although there is a butler with a tray serving drinks. There is a photographer and his assistant present. The flash goes off several times as he takes pictures.

PHOTOGRAPHER

Thank you, ladies. That will do. I think I have what I need. Enjoy your evening.

PHOTOGRAPHER and ASSISTANT pack up their things and go.

VANILLA

So what dance is everyone doing for the competition?

DISGUSTING BETTE

Check this out. I’m the queen of the Moon Walk.

MARLA SHRIVEL

I can see the future. And one day, I am going to marry the Running Man.

The ladies all giggle.

VIVID WOLF

See if you can guess!Vanessa1

VIVID does the Cabbage Patch.

GIA

Cabbage Patch! Nice one. How about you Savvy?

SAVVY GAVVY

How about me?

She does the Roger Rabbit, followed by the Sprinkler.

VANILLA

I do the Worm when no one is watching.

VANILLA proceeds to demonstrate.

SUZY CAN’T PASS UP

Uh-oh! Look out girls. There she goes!

SUZY CHARLENE BACKSTAB

I want to see what Gia can do.

GIA

You asked for it! Marla, why don’t you come help me do the Electric Slide.

Soul FoodMARLA

I may have had just enough tequila to make that a possibility. Move over, girl.

As the two women begin to do the Electric Slide there is a flash of light and suddenly all the women find themselves standing in a kitchen where an over-weight woman is cooking something deep fried.

GIA

You guys, I think I glamoured us.

The woman catches her arm on fire. The ladies look on in shock for a moment and then VIVID jumps up. She grabs a dish towel, wets it and throws it around the fat woman’s arm.

She and VIVID look each other in the eye for a long moment.

FAT MAMMA

Thank you, Vivid. That oughta just do it. You feel at home in this kitchen.

VIVID

Hey guys, I think I’m going to stay. Go on ahead without me.

There is a flash of light and suddenly the girls are in the living room of a tiny house. There are several people already in the living room when they get there, including: IGNANT, HILDY, MARCO, JUSTY and DANNY MEAD.

SAVVY

Pointing and screaming at IGNANT.

Don’t you molest me one day in the Wistful Lanes, you pervert!

DANNY

To HILDYBetty

I’m sorry. I’m afraid you are just not qualified to apply for the secretary position.

DISGUSTING BETTE

I will make a good secretary for you one day, Danny.

MARCO

I’m a good secretary, too, as long as I don’t have to work for people like Vanilla.

DISGUSTING BETTE

Girls, I think I’m going to stay on here and help Danny out. Why don’t you just go on without me?

There is a flash of light and the ladies find themselves on a lovely suburban street. Behind them a sign says “Wistful Lanes.” Several of the houses have “For Sale” signs in the front yard. As they look around them the girls begin to giggle and point.

VANILLA

Why not? It’s your fantasy. You can have anything you want.

CREEP

Okay, then, I want that one.

SUSIE MAY

No fair. . . I wanted that one. But that’s okay. I’ll take the blue one.

LYNDA SAVAGE

Oooo, my turn. I want that one. I like the rose bushes.

DIE U-BRITISH

Well, as long as we can have anything, we might as well go for the best. I like that rather modern looking one. It appeals to me.

SAVVY

DesperateYou know, I may have to take the tall one right there. Call my solicitor and have him make the arrangements.

The girls all laugh but then two beautiful men, HAPPY LEO and BOB HUNT come running out of one of the occupied houses with papers in their hands.

LEO

Ladies, are you thinking about buying?

BOB

We have some of the greatest mortgage deals in the area.

CREEP

Taking one of the papers and looking it over.

And the fantasy becomes a reality . . .

LYNDA

Why not? I’m in.

SUSIE MAY

I’ve always wanted my own home.

SAVVY

In for a penny, in for a pound.

DIE

Give one of those here and let me look it over.

MARLA

I don’t know if you should do that, Die. If you stay, you will be killed and Vanilla will get your house.

DIE

We are all going to end up being pretty desperate at these rates, but I’ll chance it. I think we’re set here. Why don’t you girls go on.The Jackson 5

There is a flash of light as the remaining ladies are transported to Motown Records. They stand outside of a recording booth watching five boys record a song. They are the Jackson 5.

SUZY CAN’T PASS UP

I’m going to stick around and help these boys with their costumes and dance moves.

VANILLA

One day I am going to play you in a movie.

SUZY 1

Maybe you will. But for now, I am going to stick around here to help these boys. The rest of you might as well go on.

There is again a flash of light as the remaining four now find themselves in a tiny doll house. There is a fake refrigerator with plastic food, a plastic stove and computer. Vanilla notices a very real CD, however, and slips it into her purse. Just then an android with a machine gun for an arm, broke into the room where the dollhouse was being kept.

ANDROID

EraserGive me that CD or there is going to be TROUBLE.

A secret agent comes through the door of the doll house.

ECKLES

Don’t worry, ladies, my name is Eckles. I’m with Vampire Witness Protection. We shrink vamps and transport them into doll houses to hide them. In this case, though, that doesn’t seem to have worked, so I am going to teleport you to Exterminators of the Future.

GIA

To Vanilla.

One day that Eckles is going to end up with Foxy Ricky.

There is another flash of light. The ladies are all dressed like Terminators. They are on a street that maybe Rodeo Drive. Marla notices a tall, muscular, male Terminator and steps up to him.Robocop

MARLA

Back off, girls, this one is mine. Hey, there, handsome what is your name?

TERMINATOR

I’ll be back.

He disappears.

MARLA

Who was that man?

ECKLES

That was the Governator. The first and original Terminator.

SUZY 2

Hey, what about the contest? We need to get back.

ArnieECKLES

Don’t worry. We just have to find the secret contestant, Sara Cunning. It should only take a few minutes and then we can go.

They hear a scream and then see TERMINATOR standing over the bleeding corpse of Sara Cunning.

SUZY 2

Laughing.

Well, I guess that’s one less person to compete against.

GIA

Yeah, well, don’t forget: a mystery contestant can be replaced by any other competitor’s relative.

MARLA

It’s going to be your sister Sherry. She will replace Sara Cunning. Now, if you girls Arnold Mariawill excuse me, I think I’m going to stand by my man. I don’t care what he’s done. He’s mine.

There is another flash of light. The remaining ladies return to the pageant where SHERRY is waiting nervously in the wings. She is dressed in full Belly Dancer attire. The other girls go back to the dressing rooms to get changed. Once SUZY is dressed, she pulls an envelope out of her bag and quietly slips it under one of the clipboards on the judges table before going back stage to wait in the wings with the other contestants.

ANNOUNCER

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s welcome our judges:

Judges enter and stand behind the table as their names are announced. When all the judges are present, they sit.

Okra Belfry . . . Terry Pliers . . . Triple T Debs . . . Margo Derek . . . Dulla Plaudool . . . Pinky Jade . . . Mob RaShell . . . and Laz Burman.

Vampire America PageantA montage ensues in which each contestant is seen showing off her talents. After each contestant we see the score each judge gives the contestants. Sherry does a belly dance but drops her cymbals and receives the lowest marks. Finally, the girls are reassembled on stage as the winners are announced.

ANNOUNCER

Our fourth place winner is Sherry!

Coming in third is Gia!

That only leaves two contestants, ladies and gentlemen. Our new Miss Vampire America is Vanilla Willis! Congratulations Vanilla!

SUZY

Hold on! Ms. Belfry, if you will look under your clip board, I think you will find something very interesting.

BELFRY looks under her clipboard to find the envelope SUZY stashed there earlier. She opens it and gasps.

BELFRY

Oh My! I think this definitely disqualifies Vanilla.Vanessa3

BELFRY passes the photos on to the judge next to her. More gasps.

BURMAN

She’s not wearing any clothes! I’m afraid nude photos disqualify you.

JADE

That makes Suzy our new Miss Vampire America!

SUZY is crowned as the other three huddle, watching.

To GIA

VANILLA

I never took any nude photos!

GIAMiss America Vampire

I know, honey. But don’t you worry. This day will wash away. One day in the not too distant future, you will have a successful music and acting career that will overshadow this day, completely. So don’t you worry about it.

SHERRY

Gia, I’m tired.

VANILLA

Me too.

GIA

VampireDancer1Let’s go home.

SHERRY

I’ll meet you in St. Louis.

FADE.

Would you cast Katarina Graham (The Vampire Diaries) to play Vanilla in The Vampire Dancer Saga?

The Vampire Dancer Saga Front

Casting Call: Which actors would you cast to play DWTS (Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke), SYTYCD (Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy or Cat Deeley), or Buffy characters in the Movie Version of The Vampire Dancer Saga?

The Vampire Dancer SagaI’m working on having a script written for my newly published book, The Vampire Dancer Saga.  Who do you think will be great to cast in the spoofs of Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and Buffy the Vampire Slayer BTVS cast members?

Let’s see if you agree with my cast suggestions:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
This casting is super EASY!  Let’s put most of the actors from the cancelled The Secret Circle back to work:

Mutant Weirdoes (SunniHell, CA)
Buff Dude (Vampire vanquisher)Chris Zylka
Angela (Vampire)
Zanadu (Glamour dancer)
Will Potter (Male witch from London)
Wiz (Werewolf)

Phoebe TonkinYou may have noticed that Buffy is now a Buff DUDE (she’s a man, baby) and Angel is now a GIRL (Angela).  Also Xander and Willow have switched genders as well.  With that in mind, here are my choices:

  • Buff Dude is now Chris Zylka (who played Jake Armstrong on The Secret Circle)
  • Angela is now Phoebe Tonkin (who played Faye Chamberlain on The Secret Circle)
  • Zanadu is now Shelley Hennig (who played Diana Meade on The Secret Circle)
    Will Potter is now Thomas Dekker (who played Adam Conant on The Secret Circle), hope you don’t mind a bit of red hair dye to look more like Willow, LOL
  • Wiz is now Gray Damon (who played Lee LaBeque on The Secret Circle)

Shelley HennigNext, let’s take a look at the “So You Think You Can Vamp” cast:

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

  • For Mare Thomas DekkerMurph, I would recommend an actress who can dance such as Summer Glau.  We’ve seen her dance in episodes of Firefly, Angel and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  She is a bit young to be Mare, but I bet she can shout HOT TAMALE TRAIN just like Mary!
  • For Ligel Nitchgow, I would recommend Anthony Steward Head from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Anthony is only 5 years younger than the “real” Nigel, so that would be perfect.  What is he up to these days anyway?
  • For Bom Tergeron, I would recommend Sean Maher from Firefly, Warehouse 13 and The Playboy Club.  He is 20 years younger than the “real” Tom but with a bit of gray hairs (ala George Clooney), he will look very handsome.Gray Damon

Kat Dealy replaced Rook Rurke as the co-host alongside Bom Tergeron for the 3000 Vampire Olympics Finals.  “Welcome Hepcats to our 3000 Vampire Olympic Finals. Let’s give a big hand to our JEEJEDGES,” announced Kat as the Special Guest judges took their seat. Bom cracked and said, “No one can understand your cockney British accent Kat, why don’t you just say: Judges?”

  • ForSummer Glau Kat Dealy, I would recommend Kaley Cuoco from Charmed and The Big Bang Theory.
  • For Rook Rurke, I would recommend Morena Baccarin from Firefly, V and Serenity,

Wow!  I just can’t get Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly out of my head.  I love ANYTHING by the master producer JOSS WHEDON!!!

Part 9 – Miss Vampire America dances to win the Crown, the 1980s

“Hurry up Gia! You don’t want to miss my mom’s piano lesson. We have to finish on time so we can practice our dances for the contest,” said Vanilla. Gia and Vanilla were best friends at Syracuse University. Gia was visiting Vanilla the week before they were due to compete in the Miss Vampire America contest. Gia had won the state contest in Missouri and Vanilla was representing New York.

This was Gia’s first time in a national contest so she was surprised at how friendly the other contestants were. This year’s pageant would feature 13 unlucky competitors. Gia and Vanilla met 10 competitors one night at a pool party 2 days before the big contest:
Creep KampvandMJ Smooth
Susie May
Lynda Savage
Die U-British
Savvy Gavvy
Disgusting Bette
Vivid Wolf
Suzy Can’t Pass Up
Suzy Charlene Backstab
Marla Shrivel

MC HammerThey joked around, had some Margaritas and told everyone which dances they planned to do for the Dance Competition of the contest.

Vivid was going to show her best Cabbage Patch dance moves. Disgusting said she was the queen of the Moonwalk. Both Gia and Marla had the ability to see past and future events. So Marla bragged that one day she will marry The Running Man. Savvy liked doing the Roger Rabbit, Slam Dancing and the Sprinkler. While Vanilla admitted to doing the Robot and the Worm when no one was watching. Each lady took a turn showing off their favorite dances.

But when it was Gia’s time to demonstrate the Electric Slide, she accidentally “glamoured” instead.MJ Moon2

Gia began predicting future events during the glamour dance and since Marla was so near their combined supernatural abilities combined and shifted the 12 ladies into an Alternate Universe.

They looked around and noticed they were in a kitchen watching a woman cook some very Soulful Food. The lady’s arm caught on fire and Vivid was the first to react and help her. Fat Momma said, “You feel right at home in this kitchen Vivid”. Vanilla got mad at Vivid because she just remembered when Vivid stole her man. Vivid decided to stay in Fat Momma’s kitchen and told the remaining 11 to press on.

BettyNext they glamoured into a tiny house in New York. There was a crowd of people in the room, including Ignant, Hildy, Justy, Marko and Danny Meed. Savvy Gavvy screamed and shouted to Ignant, ‘Don’t you molest me one day in the Wistful Lanes, you pervert!” Then Danny told Hildy she was not qualified to apply for the secretary position. Disgusting stepped up and said, “I will make a great secretary for you one day Danny.” Marko cracked, ‘I’m a good secretary too, as long as I don’t have to work for people like Vanilla!” Disgusting Bette decided to stay and help Danny, but urged the remaining 10 to press on.

Then the ladies were teleported to a beautiful suburban street in the Wistful Lanes. They saw For Sale signs on 5 of the houses on the block. Just for fun, Creep Kampvand, Susie May, Lynda Savage, Die U-British and Savvy Gavvy picked out their favorite house. Just then, Happy Leo and his handsome husband Bob Hunt ran out and passed out mortgage contract offers to the 5 ladies. But then Marla had another prediction that Die U-British will get killed off and Vanilla was going to end up with her house anyway. So DieDesperate told the remaining ladies to press on as they planned to stay behind and be very, very Desperate!

Gia, Vanilla, Marla, Suzy 1 and Suzy 2 were now in Gary, IN. They were watching the Jackson 5 sing at Motown Records. Suzy Can’t Pass Up started helping the J5 with choreography steps and costume ideas. Gia told Vanilla that she will portray Suzy 1 in a movie one day. Suzy 1 said she needed to stay J5behind and help the Jackson 5, but told the remaining 4 to press on.

Suddenly Gia, Vanilla, Suzy 2 and Marla were teleported to Detroit, MI. But they felt like they were shrinking at the same time they were being teleported. They found themselves in a Dollhouse that was beautiful, but not functional. The refrigerator had fake food. The toilets did not have water and did not flush. The computers were only plastic, except for the CD on the computer desk. Just then a man burst in the room and said, “Give me that CD, or there’s going to be TROUBLE!” The ladies screamed because this man looked like half robot and half cop and his arm was a machine gun. Only EraserVanilla had the courage to slide up the computer table and hide the CD in her purse while she tried to distract the RobotKopper. Then Eckels came into the Dollhouse and explained how the Witness Protection for Vamps had the ability to shrink people so they can hide them in a Dollhouse. Gia told Vanilla that she had another prediction that one day Eckels will end up with her man Foxy Ricky. Eckels said, “Fear not ladies. I have another way to protect you from the RobotKopper. I will teleport you Robocopto Exterminators of the Future!” Eckels transformed into an Exterminator right in front of the ladies, then she glamoured them to go to LA.

By this time, it was the day before the Miss Vampire of America contest and Suzy 2 was getting nervous about making it back in time to compete. Eckels, said it will only take a few minutes for her to find the mystery contestant, Sara Cunning so she could teleport her safely to the contest. Then the ladies noticed a very handsome and muscular man. Marla shouted, “Back off bitches. This one is mine!” Marla asked the Sexy man his name and he said, “I’ll be Back!” They asked Eckels who was that sexy man that had on the same Exterminator outfit like hers. Eckels said, “He is the Governator the first and original Exterminator”! They heard Sara screaming and before they knew it, the Governator killed her. Suzy 2 laughed and said, “One less person to compete again in the contest!” Gia reminded Suzy 2 that a mystery contestant can be replaced by anyArnie competitor’s relative, even if they are from the same state. Marla announced that she was going to Stand By her Man and stay in California with the Governator; even though he was caught having sex with the maid. Before Marla left, she told Gia her prediction that Gia’s sister, Sherry will replace the mystery contestant.

Gia glamoured everyone back to the pageant just in time to complete. Conniving Suzy Charlene Backstab was determined to win at any cost. She got on her PC and photoshopped Vanilla’s head onto the body of a nude woman, then gave the nude “photoshopped” photos to the judges the day before the contest.

Each contestant performed their best song and dance during the competition. Sherry, Gia’s sister was the worst dancer of all. She performed a Belly Dance, but dropped her finger cymbals during the dance. She vowed to come back the next year and try harder.  Gia predicted that she will win next year, which she did.

Bom Tergeron announced the esteemed judges before crowning the winner. Please welcome our judges:
Okra BelfryDollhouse
Terry Pliers
Triple T Debs
Margo Derek
Dulla Plaudool
Pinky Jade
Mob RaShell
Laz Burman

Sherry noticed that the judges were her favorite TV and movie producers, dancers and directors. She planned to contact them about producing her book into a movie or TV show one day: Hint, Hint!

Bom was ready to announce the winners. “Our 4th runner up is Sherry. Our 3rd runner up is Gia.”

TerminatorThen Vanilla & Suzy 2 held hands, as they knew that one of them was about to be crowned Miss Vampire America.

Bom announced that the new Miss Vampire America is: Vanilla Willis!

The crowd went wild, as Vanilla was the first African American to win Miss Vampire America.

Suzy 2 got mad and snatched the mic from Bom, “Hold on everyone. I believe the judges have some very interesting photos of Vanilla.”

The judges looked at the fake “photoshopped” photos and announced that Vanilla had to give up the crown.MJ Thriller Suzy 2 snatched the crown from her head and started shouting, “I won, you lost!”

Gia told Vanilla, “That is okay. Don’t worry about it. You are going to be a very famous singer and actress one day. You will have very many top songs, win awards and do many great TV shows and movies. Your upcoming success will overshadow this day completely”.

Then Gia told Sherry, let’s go home. Sherry said, I agree, “I’ll Meet you back in St. Louis.”
