I would move the bed out and replace it with a sleeping bag just to see her reaction.

But I have nothing to lose so that probably isn't a good idea for you.

Can a person really tell the difference in thread count? I don't know if my sheets even have a thread count. I get them from ebay or steal them from the hospital.

Yes... softness, fabric texture:)
but lol

It's like anything... there are levels of 'ahhhhh' but in this case, it's more like levels of 'waaaaaaah'

I don't blame her, she probably wants you to buy new sheets !!!

It is not like she asked for fresh flowers or to have the toilet paper roll going a certain way.

I've had many models stay over in my guestroom and NOT ONE has ever mentioned the thread-count of the sheets or in fact complained, carped or questioned the facilities in any way.

This leads me to wonder whether the OP mentioned all the "specs" of his guestroom in an email and the model's response was somewhat tongue-in-cheek... wink

Her requirements and comments on the bed were:

1.  It must have a very plush pillowtop matress that is queensize or larger.
2.  The bed spread must be of a thick down construction, with a dustruffle.
3.  Sheets on the bed must not have a thread count lower than 600.

Isn't that the Webster's definition of "diva?"

Seems like you have a couple of choices:

1. Tell her that your plans have changed: you're changing models for the shoot.

2. Go on with the shoot and sell tickets.  If you do this, I'm in - it would be worth a flight to CA to watch THAT zoo.

That seems a bit over the top. I wonder if that's her way of cancelling.

Hard to say?
-She could be new, it's her first time traveling and doesn't know how she sounds.
-She could have just had a really bad traveling experience and is covering her bases harder than usual.
-She could be a batshit insane Paris Hilton wannabe.


For what it's worth. I bring my own pillow wherever I travel. Yes my memory foam is better than whatever is in your guestroom wink


MY big question is, did she tell you this before or after you agreed to host her?

If you are not paying for her travel...then if she does not like the your accommodations, then tell her to book her own room at the local Four Seasons or Sybaris Pool Suites.

Hopefully this is tfcd since you are providing the accommodations...and probably food too.

... And on her first night, at about 3 or 4am, blast some deathmetal at full volume through the speakers.

Be sure you have a nightvision video camera set up to document her reaction. Then post on YouTube.

Most definetely!

Get everything perfect -

And then run to Cal Poly Ag department - have an ag student gather about 50 big fat hog lice in a bottle, from the breeder boars.

The rest of the story writes itself.. tongue

Course, you'll have to burn the room afterwards..
