““Frenemy“ (alternately spelled “frienemy“) is a portmanteau of “friend” and “enemy” that can refer to either an enemy disguised as a friend or someone who’s both a friend and a rival. The term is used to describe personal, geopolitical, and commercial relationships both among individuals and groups or institutions. The word has appeared in print as early as 1953″ – www.en.wikipedia.org
“Frenemies is a 2012 television film and anthology based on the novel of the same name by Alexa Young premiered on Disney Channel. It features an ensemble cast of Bella Thorne, Zendaya, Stefanie Scott, Nick Robinson, and Mary Mouser. The film follows three pairs of friends that go from friends to enemies and back again. Halley Brandon and Avalon Greene are two girls who have a website called GeeklyChic. The girls tell three stories. The first story is about how a kid and a dog who are best friends become frenemies and how they become best friends again. The second story is about how two BFFs become total frenemies over a senior editor job. The last story is about two lookalikes (possibly twins) who swap lives with each other, like the Prince and the Pauper.
My topic here is really GeeklyChic. The second story is about Avalon Greene (Bella Thorne) and Halley Brandon (Zendaya) who created a web magazine called “GeeklyChic.” During school, Halley gets a call from her and Avalon’s favorite New York City publishing company run by Cherie St. Claire (Jessalyn Wanlim). Halley thinks her elder brother Kendall (Jascha Washington) is playing a prank on her until she realises she really has received a call from Cherie St. Claire. Cherie St. Claire tells them to go to the publishing company’s headquarters in Manhattan, New York to ask them something that could change their lives. During the talk, Cherie St. Claire tells Avalon and Halley that she likes their web magazine and offers to buy it, but decides to only let one of them be the senior editor. Cherie St. Claire decides to let each of them write a cover article and will judge who wrote the best article as that writer will become the senior editor. Avalon and Halley, who both want to be hired as senior editors, both decide to interview a French singer named Jean Frank after his first American sold-out concert which leads them to become frenemies. At the end, they decide that they will share the article. Cherie St. Claire becomes angry and decides not to hire either of them. The television show “Teens Now” picks up their article about Jean Frank changing his image as he was only posing as a singer from Paris, France. “Teens Now” also broadcasts their blog’s website for their audience to check out. Seeing that their web magazine has gone global on their hit counter map, Avalon and Halley make up as best friends again.” : www.en.wikipedia.org
There’s a sign out I have come to love, so I’m going to use it.
