Not-so-nosy junior thinks celebrities are hot, but naturally inaccessible
Wildcat: My name is Kylee and you're on the spot. I feel like gossiping today. Do you wanna dish the dirt with me?
Wildcat: OK. So, do you think Brad Pitt is doin' Angelina Jolie?
Dueñas: I think he is. I haven't really been catching up on the news lately, but ... Are they dating?
Wildcat: Well, it was on the cover of Us Weekly magazine, so it must be true! It said, "It's On!"
Dueñas: Oh really? Well I do think they're getting it on, or whatever.
Wildcat: OK, so speaking of hot gorgeous blond-haired, blue-eyed men, do you think Matthew McConaughey's hot?
Dueñas: Yeah, he's definitely hot.
Wildcat: Can you spell McConaughey?
Dueñas: M-C-O-U-T-E ... Ahh ... No, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Let me start over. (Laughs) M-A-C-O-U-N-E-H-E-Y? Is it close?
Wildcat: Nice try, but not even close. So now, anyway, do you think Matthew McConaughey would cheat on that Penelope Cruz slut the way Tom Cruise cheated on Nicole with Penelope Cruz?
Dueñas: Well, since he's very hot, I think he probably would cheat on her. I don't know. You know how guys are.
Wildcat: Why are men such bastards? Why would they do that?
Dueñas: Well, like, I totally gave up on guys a long time ago. (Laughs)
Wildcat: (Laughs) OK. All right, well do you think Tom Cruise is gay?
Dueñas: No. No, I don't think he's gay. Have there been rumors about that?
Wildcat: All over the place. That's not where I wanted to take the conversation, but I'm glad you answered that. So now, what about you? You got any juicy gossip you wanna spill?
Dueñas: As of now, not really.
Wildcat: Not about anyone? Friends, enemies, professors, parents? What about yourself?
Dueñas: Hmm ... let me think.
Wildcat: Well, when's the last time you did something disreputable? Something that would appear in a tabloid if you were famous?
Dueñas: Hmmm ...
Wildcat: And, by the way, you're gonna be in the newspaper, so you will be famous.
Dueñas: (Laughs) This is probably gonna suck. I dated my friend's ... No, they weren't really dating, but I kinda went out behind her back with him. And she didn't really know. But I kinda felt bad, so I had to stop it.
Wildcat: He wasn't her boyfriend?
Dueñas: No. They were seeing each other, but they weren't, like, serious, so I thought it was OK.
Wildcat: Do you think we spend too much time worrying about celebrities' lives?
Dueñas: I think so. I think people who spend a lot of time worrying about celebrities don't really have lives themselves, 'cause they're obsessing.
Wildcat: People like me, I guess.
