The Other Woman Doesn't Work
Not that she was destined to become the next Angelina Jolie – not even close – but since B List and reality stars are all the rage these days, who’s to say she would not have had a career revival as the matriarch for a new generation? Or a movie of the week once every few weeks?
The problem is her love life. She is in love with a man who has a wife. A man who comes from a legendary family. A man who is supposed to be a bastion of fidelity, with strong values and a wholesome image. This is not the man who should be carrying on an affair with an actress, hidden away in hotels, picked up on the sly by his security team, given a code name by his people. Her birthday is noted in his assistant’s organiser, it’s as official as it gets, only it’s also the best kept secret, and he intends to keep it that way which is why she’s only allowed to work sparingly. Which means guest appearances only and no long standing commitments, lest she reappear on the radar and invite a little curiosity, potentially blowing their cover.
She lives by his rules because she thinks what they have is real and forever but not surprisingly, he has his eye on someone else. Almost her doppelganger. Some say she will be replaced. Is cheating hereditary?
