Now Starring Vivien Leigh Reid:
Diva in Training
Moments after arriving in L.A., Leigh Reid is already regretting her decision to spend another summer with her mother, actress Annika Anderson. Last summer's "family reunion" on a film set in Ireland turned out okay, but Annika is still a grade-A diva.
Living in L.A. does have its upside. Leigh is taking classes at one of the city's best acting schools, and she scores a role on a hot TV soap Diamond Heights. Better yet, her cute Irish boyfriend is coming to visit.
Leigh soon finds that dealing with Annika is easy compared to navigating the shark-infested waters of Hollywood, where even a taste of fame quickly turns a girl's head. And before long, there's another diva in the house.
