Monologue Mania Day #281 by Janet S. Tiger   Nov. 20, 2014 

Warning - strong language

See Day # 229
                              ( Can and Will be Used) Against You
                                (from the play/movie Celebrity)
                                      A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved

            (Monte Camden comes out onstage - he is furious, waving a newspaper)

I can't believe it!  After all we talked about, after all the damned hours I spent telling you to keep your mouth shut if we haven't discussed the issue!  Remember?  What are you supposed to do?

(Imitates young girl)  Hee...hee!  What an interesting question?  What do you think of my new hairdo?
(As himself)  How the hell hard is that to remember!

This is a fucking mess!  Why did you have to say something so godammned stupid?  I mean, (imitates her again)  'Gay people shouldn't be in a closet, the only thing in closets should be beautiful clothing, like this...'

          (He whirls around like he has on a new dress.)

'I mean, everyone should be free!  To do their own thing!'  What the hell were you thinking?  The only free thing in Hollywood is ass, and that costs a lot!  For God's sake, you know who you're supposed to be having an affair with!  You know the rumors about him.....and you know all the rumors are true!

You do recall that's why he is dating you, so that people will think he is straight!  Right?  And get the new superhero role in the upcoming blockbuster! And you are up for the choice girlfriend part!  Which we have worked to get for the last two months!

 And then you go and you say something stupid like this and it just screws with the whole idea! Have you read what people are tweeting? And putting on Facebook?  That you are a big phony!  That you just....(spits this out)  are using him.....for publicity!  And for some reason, people do not like that - the public has little sense of morality but what they do, they stick to like gum on shoes!

And it's not that they give a holy horseshit about whether he's gay - or whether you are using him, they only care that their ILLUSION about the two of you is now shot to hell!  That they were....fooled!  That you...(laughed)....lied to them! 

I thought that I made myself clear when we first met - no one in this business gives a shit about the truth, but we all give a shit about money, and if it makes money, it's the truth.  And that is the truth, no shit!

         (He turns to leave, stops, looks back)

(Vicious) Didn't I tell you...everything you say can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion!  And if you can't remember that, my dear miss upcoming young superstar, then you can forget our arrangement - and go fuck yourself, because no one in this business will!

         (He leaves.  End of scene)
