Characters I love to Hate! by Karen Vaughan

Karens final choice 6d OVER HER DEAD BODY

LEENA DUBOIS BROWN AKA JULIE WRIGHT is the quintessential bitch in this story. She is used to getting what she wants exactly when she wants it. When her much older rich husband seeks a paramour more his own age Leena decides there is only room for one woman riding the meal ticket-her!  Like a woman scorned, Leena sets out to eliminate the competition –one Ethel Peterson who never saw it coming!

Leena is the aging showgirl Sandford (Sandy) Brown married on the fly. She comes across like Leena Lamont in SINGING IN THE RAIN–dumb as a bag of rocks but do not cross her. She has a caustic tongue and a toxic attitude to match!

My choice to portray Leena would be KRISTEN JOHNSON from 3 ROCK FROM THE SUN.

She could pull off the designer clothes and Jimmy Choos in a heartbeat!

Excerpt from Over her dead Body: Chapter 4 Ethels funeral

Leena looked at me with derision again.  “Who’s the floozy?” she sneered.

I was seeing red and Sandy’s face was turning a similar color.

“Floozy?”  I spluttered.  I wanted to scratch her eyes out, but I refused to succumb to the base temptation to beat the broad senseless.  Sensing an impending catfight Gerry rushed to my side.

Sandy looked at his wife sternly.  “Leena that was tasteless and crass,” he admonished her, “you will apologize to Laura. How dare you defame this funeral of my dear friend Ethel by insulting this lovely girl?”


“Girl my ass,” Leena snarled, “she’s gotta be at least 35.”

If Gerry hadn’t held me back I would have bitch-slapped her into next week. Okay so I was almost 35; but that wasn’t the point.

Sandy was livid.  “I apologize for my wife’s bad behavior. I had better take her out of here.”

He handed me one of his cards and said he would be back in a few days most likely without his spouse.
