- Naomi: I think there are a few things you deserve to know about my sister. I'm sure Jen probably told you she spent last year pining for you. The truth is she was pretty much sluttin' in up with any semi-rich guy who would look halfway in her general direction.
Naomi: Oh yeah, and you might find this interesting: she also slept with my boyfriend. He was, what, sixteen at the time?
