Bianca was new to the modeling game. She was young and a pampered little thing, not too long out of the nest. How could they ask her to work in this kind of heat. She was hot, tired and bored, at first refusing to pose for the camera. The thousands and thousands of peanuts she had been paid made no difference. No matter how many peanuts we bribed her with now, she was in no mood to flash those pearly whites. She was getting the reputation of being a bit of a Diva.
We tried again and again, "Here, have another peanut, a few sunflower seeds perhaps?" "No, no, too many carbs!" she exclaimed. "How about mineral water? A facial massage?" It took a lot of patience and there were signs that she was coming around and then, all of a sudden after waiting an hour or two, with the clock ticking along.....
Well, at first we had to listen to, "Oh my, does this fur coat make me look a little broad in the beam?" "Oh my, could you stop shining that light in my eyes?" "Oh my, please take that camera out of my face, so many PHOTOGRAPHS!" "Someone, PLEASE get me a misting spray!" Eyes rolling everywhere, from both sides. After what seemed like an eternity, she started acting like a professional and believe me we all breathed a sigh of relief. Look at that pose!
It had been a difficult photo shoot but now we were heading back into the house and oh my, it's so hot and after I have stuck my head in the freezer for a minute or two to cool down, this Diva will be asking, "Where's that glass of wine? It's got to be after six o'clock in some part of the world."
