Venus: "After a few centuries of turning pumpkins into coaches and frogs into princes, I thought I was getting the hang of being a fairy godmother. Maybe soon Zeus would let me back onto Mount Olympus...then I met Rachel Greer. A goody-two-shoes do-gooder who ignored my advice - terrific advice, if I do say so myself - about men. And kept nagging me for spending too much time in the bathroom when everyone knows a goddess always needs to look her best.Rachel: "I had a decent job, friends, a loving family. My volunteer work, as a mentor for young women and a dog-walker at the local shelter, kept me happing. Then this amazingly beautiful woman, who literally turns heads - men walk into walls when she passes by - announces she's my fairy godmother, here to help me fall in love! Next thing I know, she's moved into my apartment and kicked me out of my own bedroom. Of course I thought she was nuts...until the magic started to happen."
