Cleopatra's brainstorm on how to avoid being humiliated by Octavia:

1. Wrap myself in a carpet for the rest of my life.
2. Start a take-out pizza business named after one of my sons: Little Ceasar
3. Bail out the American economy with my wealth--It worked in Italy--interest went from 12 to 4%!
4. Make myself a pyramid even though those are so last century!
5. Go out with a bang--get bitten by a snake. Ouch!

Read the post below then tell me which part of Cleopatra's rise to power would be the worst for you. Why?

Cleopatra's Path to the Top

OK, Cleopatra did not have it easy as a queen or pharaoh of Egypt. When her dad was in power, he was hated so much by the Egyptians, he ran away to Rome! After he died...and her two older sisters died, she finally became a queen--at age 18. Less than ideal circumstances, if you ask me. Not only that....I always thought she was one of the most beautiful women of Egypt...I found out without the cool clothes and snazzy haircut, she actually looked like a dude! This picture is obviously a modern day, less than accurate picture, but if you imagine this woman with facial hair you may get the idea better. What I'm saying is, even though she was considered a pharaoh, her life wasn't all rosy. However, that didn't stop good ol' Cleo from finding a man of her own, no way! Just wait until I tell you of some of her relationships!
