Oh my god! Oh my god!

My God

Nikki, it's we who are happy

and fortunate to have you on board

...on this film,

in this role.

I meant everything I said in

praising Devon.

And forgive me, I do love

making speeches.

I mean this too...

You have everything you need to soar

back to the top...

...and to stay perched there.

This film, you and Devon,

a great director.

Yes, do I hear?

The script is well, we're going to plunge into.

If all play our role,

do our best...

...if we work hard together

...well, this could be the one...

This is a starmaker, if ever I saw

one, you'll see

I think we have a chance

to pull it off...

what do you say?

Let's do it!

If you don't f*ck it up Kingsley,

I'm sure we can!

I never felt better

in my life.

Champaign and caviar

is on its way.

Tonight, Nikki Grace

and Devon Berk.

Marsha, honey I know where you live,

do not pull my hair.

We're back in:

Mamas, lock up you daughter's doors!

Nikki, really, this news, this

shocking revelation by Devon...

...must send a shiver down your spine!

Are you going to be able to be true

to hubby with a wolf in the den?

do with a bad wolf round you

Now, Marilyn...

I'm sure we'll get on famously,

in a professional way

and that's how it will stay,


And, Devon, your naughty boy,

are you hiding a smile?

Is your devilish mind scheming?

If you're looking for shock value Marilyn,

I suggest that you look in the mirror.

What a bitting wit!

But I tell you this:

Marilyn Levins is going to be watching,

and she will be reporting to you

everything she finds out!

There, and there, and there and beyond

around the world!

The Marilyn Levins Starlight Celebrity

show will be back next week

...from Hollywood, California.

Where stars make dreams...
