It looks like Caren Matner/Lissner's teen-romance novel is actually in production to become a movie pretty soon, so we may soon bid her farewell as she goes off to pursue her dreams of fame and fortune. But until then, I think it's safe to say she's a wholly owned subsidiary of the Barrys, or at least owes them big for setting her up with a day job she can pretty much phone in while chasing the elusive big-time. But if and when she moves on, another placeholder will fill her shoes in no time. It's a real estate rag of, by and for developers, always has been.
