Not only that, she's in the process of building an entire empire featuring a line of accessories, fashion, a TV show and whatever else she can pack into her schedule. And it all started from a dare. The big question in this interview - how does a girl go from being a Marilyn Monroe impersonator at a theme park in Australia to a celebrity in Asia? Well, Cassidy's story is one of absolute determination and perseverance. Her body clock has her sleeping from 6am-2pm, she creates all
