Venus Williams Sidelined With Writer's Block

Venus and Serena Williams have been either training for tennis championships or winning them since they were old enough to walk. Nearing 30 years old, they still live with their dad in the family's estate in Palm Beach Gardens. This makes their life stories fascinating -- but it also makes it virtually impossible for them to write the kinds of screenplays they appear to favor, according to this piece in the Times.

The article mentions how Venus is wrestling with writer's block.

Maybe her material, which she described as "Desperate Housewives" meets "Sex and the City" and the "Family Guy," is the problem.

Or maybe her problem is trying to forge a screenplay out of that unholy mix. I'm picturing Peter Griffin pouring himself into Eva Longoria's tube top and tottering around on a pair of Carrie Bradshaw's Manolos.
