Penultimate week, the pathetic story of Ann Njemanze was published on the Sunday edition of our paper. Till date, the popular actress is still lamenting what has befallen her with the sudden downturn in her life. When 'Chit-chat' called her on the phone last week for a chat, she declined. Reason?

“Oh Ada, how is work?”

“Fine, can I come over to your office for a chat as scheduled?”

Cossy Ojiakor is driving a jeep, and they are still talking. Look at me, who is working hard, trying to make a living, trying to make ends meet and to bring food on the table for my children, they are now making jest of me. They said I'm living in a shabby place. Ada is that an offence?

My landlord saw the picture and the write up, and he said he was going to tell his lawyer to write me. I'm expecting the letter. I don't know what would be the content. I don't know what to do now. I'm just short of words. Which paper do you write for?”
