A/N: If you don't keep up on wrestling news, you might not understand this chapter. Let's just say it has to do with recent accusations against Ashley Massaro.
Ryan Mackenzie is the name that Ashley used to pose in Playboy under before she got to the WWE, in case you didn't know. And Candice Michelle was Mackenzie Montgomery. So if I use those names (for a reason), that's who they refer to.
"Barbie! What on earth are you doing here?" Ashley said, hugging Barbie. "I'm assuming you go the job, then?"
"Of course I did, Ryan—I mean, Ashley," Barbie smiled, fixing her mistake. She was used to calling Ashley by her professional name.
"So, what have you been doing since Nici's business folded?" Ashley asked with a tone of spite in her voice. It wasn't directed at Barbie; it was about her previous occupation being ripped away from her. She made a lot more money with Nici and it wasn't as much work.
"Modeling, mainly. That's how they found me. I was doing a lingerie trunk show in New York and that Shane guy approached me. He said he was at the show to pick up something for his wife. Well let me tell you, he definitely wasn't screaming her name later that night in his hotel room," Barbie grinned.
"Nice work!" Ashley said. "How much did he pay?"
"Well, not so much in the morning, but I guess I'm getting a hefty check here every week," Barbie grinned, glad to use her conniving to make a buck or six hundred thousand. "But enough about that. Have you been able to put your escort skills to good use?"
"I just got with two guys. One of them is pretty famous, and my most recent one was kind of strange. My only advice to you is don't fall in love with one of them."
"Love? I don't even know what that is."
"Good, because it sure as hell doesn't exist around here. Uh, have you seen Double M around here?" Ashley asked.
"Mackenzie? No, I like just got here. How has she been?"
"She's not whoring around as much. She's injured right now…I didn't know if she'd show up tonight or not. Did she tell you she's opening a strip club in her hometown?"
"Oh, do you think she'll hire me? I mean, if this doesn't work out…"
"Trust me," Ashley said, "with guys like that, running around…" She pointed to Randy Orton. "It always works out."
