Lexi on Episode 6: Paris, We Have a Problem
When I found out the girls followed me, I just thought, “Don't you have anything better to do with your time?” I mean it's a little strange that someone, let alone a group of people, would take the time out of their day to follow you around because they suspect you of still writing Adult Entertainment scripts for your Aunt's company. No offense to anyone, but I found it to be rather ridiculous on many levels. I think if they wanted to know something, they should have just asked me instead of staging some weird stakeout.
I was telling the truth about the fact that all I did was give my Aunt a script that I had written previously and I didn't even get paid for it. They weren't even putting my name in the credits. To be honest, I wasn't sure as to why this was such a big deal. I didn't write a new script, I was simply helping my Aunt get out of a bind, and wouldn't anyone do the same for their family if they could? I really didn't think I was doing anything wrong. I was told I wasn't allowed to write scripts any more, and I didn't. This script was written before I even started working for Paris.
I really have no idea why Paris’s friends wanted to sabotage me so badly. All I know is that after Vegas, I was hurt and disappointed about how I was treated. I really felt disrespected, and unappreciated. I just don't like drama, I don't like problems, and I don't like when people go out of their way to hurt others for their own benefit. To put it bluntly I just hope that in the future, human beings use their time more productively.
My conversation with Paris was fine. I thought I defended myself well. But I believe she had already made up her mind to fire me. And with all due respect, I didn't think it was a good reason or a fair reason, especially after her friends invaded my privacy in such a way, not to mention the verbal abuse I endured. But, it is her company and she has the right to do whatever she wants whenever she wants to, so I was ok with it. I respect Paris as a business woman.
No one likes losing their job, especially when they work for a family friend. But I always remain positive and believe that there are bigger and better things to come in my future. I enjoyed my time (most of it anyway), and I learned quite a bit not only from Paris but also from her friends and family. Those lessons are invaluable in so many ways and cannot be expressed in words.

As a professional writer, I do not eliminate opportunity based on genre. At the moment, I am no longer writing for my Aunt because I have been blessed with more main-stream jobs. But all-in-all, my plan is to continue writing. I am working on putting up a play I wrote and finishing up a novel. I am also continuing to write music, working with top songwriters and prominent producers, as music has always been my greatest passion. No matter what the future holds, I am excited for every creative endeavor I partake in and I am blessed for all the opportunities I have been granted.
