She’s climbing the social ladder, to the dismay of her neighbor and rival, Madison Macallister. And Casey could end up as popular as Madison now that the two are set to star in their own reality show, “De-Luxe.” But reality TV can be so unreal . . . Madison loves the attention, but having every bit of her life caught on tape is often less than glamorous. Yet fame comes at a price-and she’s willing to pay. Meanwhile, now that Casey and her almost-boyfriend Drew Van Allen are currently more off than on, she’s beginning to wonder if everything in her life is just an illusion-and how much longer the illusion can last.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This year I thought I’d dispel some myths about me, even though I have spent hours in the kitchen today making four cheesecakes (two for my neighbor and two for the actual Turkey Day feast). There are people out there, including a few friends of mine, who are under the illusion that I’m a gourmet cook. This is only marginally true . . . any skills I have were acquired from watching my mom in the kitchen and then operating in a kind of “monkey see, monkey do” fog over the years.
