She was on top. Her back arched body pulsating as she gyrated on top of him. She started with her hands back on his knees and her naked chest pushed forward and blurred just enough so they could show it on television. The camera switched back to the news anchor. He said, “a shocking video was just released on the web showing Janet Dorsey and her costar Greg Keener in a lude act. I must warn the audience this video isn’t for young children.” Janet said to the television, “too late asshole.” As the sex tape, she and Greg made went on as the anchor talked about their show and more than once said how they played brother and sister. Janet switched the channel. It was one of the many all-woman talk panels. One of the “the” shows. In a logo on the side of the screen it said, “The Debate.” One of them women said to the camera, “just what were you thinking. He’s your brother your stupid bitch.” Bitch was bleeped out but it was clear what she said.

One of the other ladies was also a former child star. She was no amateur when it came to scandal. She was once arrested from the backseat of a Bentley. One she stole with ten grams of cocaine and a bag of weed. She said, “have any of you ever seen such a quick drop to the bottom before.” They all looked at her like “have you seen a mirror?” Trying to back out of the easy trap she sprung on herself she said, “just yesterday they were top in the ratings with a renewal for four years. Now the network is saying their show won’t be finishing the season.” Janet switched the channel to find the same video playing on a national news network. A woman was saying that she and her costar were promoting incest. Another anchor said, “well they are not actually related.” Then all hell broke loose on the ten-split screen talking heads. The consensus was that it didn’t matter if they were or were not related. The open dialogue was the important thing. Janet said, “what dialogue? We did nothing wrong. It was that hacker that stole my video that was the one at fault. Why are we the spokes people for something we didn’t do. Why doesn’t the truth matter?”
Janet turned the television off. She said, “what are we going to do?” Janet worried about the movie she just acted in. She was the main character. She was a twenty-year-old who wakes up from a comma to find she had a kid. It was set to be released around November. She was only wearing his discarded button-down shirt. Greg was in a pair of boxers and a tee shirt. Greg said, “don’t worry. Right now, they are blaming you but soon I will be the villain and m career was already dead.” About the second season of the show Greg’s character Jeffery got a catchphrase. It was a kiss of death. From then on, he was known by the phrase, “nothing means nothing to me.” The writers worked it onto every episode. His fate was sealed when it appeared on a poster than a commercial. His12 years of experience on Broadway just didn’t matter. Audition after audition said they couldn’t use him. One said it succinctly, “we need a handsome leading man not a teen geek.” Outside of his show most people don’t recognize him. He looks nothing like his character. He took his shirt off and showed his highly defined abs. The person conducting the auditions said, “it didn’t matter. People see the name and see Jeffery.” She then gave him her number and suggested she could find him something to work on.
Unlike Greg, Janet was a first-time actor. She had some modeling and commercial work but no stage or screen. The short two-year run of the show helped catapult her into stardom. During the first hiatus, she acted in three movies from an extra with lines to the quirky best friend that was the real star of the show. As the best friend, she was nominated and won a Golden Globe. During the last hiatus, she worked with a well-known female director and made Baby bump to the Head. Critics were giving it good reviews. The studio did early test screenings letting the critics talk about it on social media. The movie would be released the same week the show came back to Freeform. But now she wasn’t sure about anything.
Greg sat back up and dangled his legs off the bed. Janet got up and climbed into his lap. She opened her shirt to reveal her breasts. She then reached down and freed Greg from the boxers. They stared into each other eyes. Greg wondered how much longer will she stay with him. Janet wondered if he saw the camera hidden in her bag. She slowly slid onto him and soon they were making love. Janet held him close to her chest as she gyrated up and down. she liked to be on top. In control of what and who she did. It was in these times when she wondered if they were together because of the work or something else. Greg just did his best to hang on and think thoughts that prolonged the pleasure.
As they went at it their door opened. It was Janet’s manager. Also, the paparazzi. Almost every one of them got a good shot of the act. Janet didn’t bother trying to cover up. This wasn’t the first time her manager caught them. Denise Host was a manager for twenty years and has seen it all. Even so she still is surprised to see a nearly naked Greg and how different he looks in real life. Soon every less than reputable site had pictures of Greg entering Janet with a tag line “how penetrating.” With these sites posting them the mainstream media could talk about it as well as post the blurred images they love so much. Instead of ending it Janet grabbed a blanket and wrapped it around them. She remained on top of Greg as she discreetly shifted her hips keeping the action going. Denise has witness worse. She had a client that would only have meetings while on the toilet. Denise saw the bag. She knew about the camera, after all she bought it for her.
