Default Re: Teen Sues Parents for Cash, College Tuition. Does She Have a Case?

To some extent I think (or hope - I recognize at least some Duke students do not always think clearly) she is taking some arguments out for a spin to see what sort of return fire (not to mention publicity) she draws

As we all know, being a porn performer is not the only way to fund your tuition - you can deal drugs

But no surprise Fox takes the bait

Did Duke porn star really need money for college?

“Students are taking to complete strangers asking for crowd-funding. You also have the option of a two-year community college for your first two years you take the basic classes that every college requires, and you get it at 50 percent off, and then you go to the school you want to get your degree from then you’re only paying for two years,” said Vasel.

And consider the possibility she is riding the publicity wave now that she has been outed

“She should ride the media attention all the way to Oprah if she can.”

Women's studies major "Belle" was on CNN with Piers Morgan recently

I bet she gets 60 Minutes or other TV gigs out of this

Disney must be so proud

Belle's name means beauty, but she often stands out in town because she loves to read. She dreams of adventure in the great wide somewhere and believes there is good in everyone, even the Beast.
