Portia Gibbons, like most pretty rich girls, isn't really all that pretty or rich. She lives in a regular house, but fully expects to grow up to be a celebrity. Used to getting her way, Portia does not accept being told "no" (which everyone, except oblivious Bessie, pretty much goes along with). Portia loves makeup, celebrities and anything spa-related, and is obsessed with gelato. (Ice cream is for babies who have never traveled abroad. Portia has been to Alcatraz.) She is also incredibly lazy. Portia expects things to be done for her, because she has better things to think about, like moisturizing.
