“I bet there some of that cheap shit in the cupboard. You’ll gain 40 pounds before you get drunk, but makes no difference on you, you got at least 100 pounds to gain before you fill out that RV you’re wearing.” ~NEWLY WED in SUMMER HOUSE by Katie Letien (ABOVE: Alicia Lara, left, as “Innocent,” Tracey Silver, right, as “Jewels” and Suzan Mikiel, center, as “Newly Wed”)
