The choice is up to you.

No, sorry this does not come with occasional paparazzi visits, lol =D. (No obsessed fan, either, but something tells me most wont mind *laugh*)

No, it doesn't overwrite any careers from the game (it is a registered online through SimPE)

There are no chance cards, and the future is questionable. I'm not good with them. The career reward is the Teleprompter. I thought it was 'decently' appropriate.

P.S. Hope your sim that wanted this yesterday likes it! =D

Geeze, what is it with people and Hollywood lately? I found a coming-soon unofficial Hollywood pack for The Sims 2. Look to the left, click packs, and then click Hollywood Pack.

You click the link beneath the download links - the link that says "Need help with downloading or installing content? Click this link!"

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

But if anybody who owns these links shows up, TALK TO ME! I'd be happy to add my career!

What about the thousands of wonderful men and women who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?
