tw: drugs, stalking.
► an overnight success - the female has learned how to sell herself better than she ever thought possible. a once scrappy, violent, angry little thing from shitty areas in la is now a hollywood hit with her head in the clouds, her nose in cocaine, and hand in someones wallet.
► Essence was born into a not so great area (in la) by a young mother who already had a son before her. The female didn't have a rough time growing up. Most were at least somewhat scared of her older brother who had a mean streak going for him, but it also made going to the next school year harder. She was written off before she got a chance. so she sort of became a bit more of an asshole. She started to fight a lot, and become harsh.
► Essence spent a lot of her teenage years: smoking, fighting, flirting, or shoplifting. She valued money by her early teenage years. She thought women like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were the best. They just seemed so fabulous. She was a bit of a rough and tumble girl back then, as well. No one was shocked if they saw her in another fight, or tossing whatever stolen goods (from stores, never people) she tossed onto the table.
► essence wishes she could say she was one of those people who got to the top by hard word, blood, sweat, tears, begging, and a whole lot of luck. however - the story didn't unfold like that. where there was success- there was essence standing behind it. the female was involved with an extremely famous muisican - indiana ford - who was married at the time.
► she became an over night name when photos of them leaked. her manager and now good friend - isaac hampton - approached her after the story leaked. he said she should try to make her name into a success. the female had seen what fame was - being from an exclusive clique of rich kids - and agreed. instantly - the female was doing her best taking the world by storm.
► however - it wasn't as easy as it looked for her. the female struggled both privately and publicly with adjustments. her private bubble had now burst. she had no leap, or rise to fame. she came out with a lot of people being curious on who this girl was. she leaped right into the shark tank with out even taking a few classes before that.
► the female quickly fell in love with the attention, cash flow (not that she ever spends any of her own money), and spot light. she started working non-stop. the female wakes up early, and goes to sleep late. shes always tired, always falling asleep in car rides, etc. she just gets enough sleep to do a good job. even when she has days off - she tends to go out with her friends. all of this became public when she had an emotion break down on live television where she burst into tears, and collapsed onto the ground when she kept forgetting her lines. her brain too tired to actually function correctly.
► the female is now engaged to indiana ford. their lives have both been very public with each other. they're the "it" power couple in hollywood. always appearing together, and always making sure they're in the newspapers. things aren't always what they seem - they've gone through their fair share of rough patches.
► stalking. paparazzi does it all the time, but this is different. both indiana and essence are dealing with the same stalker problem. it has made essence totally paranoid. her security is bumped up, and she is being cautious all the time. one guy in particular - who she doesn't know why - has been stalking the both of them. even going as far as to stay in her mansion with out her knowing.
► someone call tic. because essence didn't know she was pregnant. she didn't find out until extremely late in her pregnancy. she was barely showing. she had always laughed at those girls on the show. until she was one. indiana has val, but essence has little involvement with her due to her disinterest in children.
► some problems with val has came up about essence's cocaine addiction. she started once she had to basically double up on her work load. she started doing cocaine in hopes to get herself to a better place where she isn't doing cocaine all the time. she went to court mandated rehab, but it didn't really work.
► essence technically lives in la, but is in seattle often because of her friends, boyfriend, and family.
► essence is very reckless. her and her friends know how to party, and definitely know how to throw one. the female throws caution to the wind, and loves to have fun. she spends money like it grows on trees. buying expensive, luxurious things that she actually really doesn't really want.
► although - you can't say she doesn't work hard. even if it isn't her money shes spending. the female has an amazing worth ethic. the drugs sometimes get in the way, but before that she was really on top of herself. she does her job well, overworks, and loves what she does. she'll face her biggest fears, stay up late, fly to different countries, etc for the sake of her money.
► essie just manages. she can take verbal abuse. she can take yelling. she can take people disliking her. as indiana once put it - she just moves onto the 'next thing'. with out really emotionally dealing with the first thing. she may feel hurt, and she may feel upset. however - she just does it. she'll have a giant scandal where nudes leak or anything else, and she just gets up and goes 'well, we should get to that modeling gig'. she just keeps working.
► essence is very self-obsessed. she may love people but she endorses one person the most - herself. she is her #1 advocate. essence can only really give herself credit for her work ethic. she isn't the smartest bulb in the pack. she isn't on some london tipton level shit, but she really isn't smart at all.
► essence thinks crying and being an emotional person are a weakness. she hates crying in front of people, and probably wont be able to make eye contact with you for a month. she doesn't judge people for the occasional crying session, but doesn't know how to deal with the constantly sobbing people.
► if there is one thing to know about essence - her pride runs deeper than her emotions. she could think about you every day. she could want to make up with you. however - she won't. shes prideful. shes also stubborn on top of it. her and her management and security team tend to fight because she is stuck in her ways, and often won't hear them out.
► essence has a hard time in loving the parts of her that people don't clap for. people have always loved her appearance - so she marks off her appearance. however - she has a hard time liking the things about her that don't get as much attention and applause.
► however - essence isn't this whole self absorbed, overworked mess who acts like a princess - she can be a genuine person. she isn't always sitting around being entitled and spending money. she goes really hard for the people she cares about.
