The true story is an apparently somewhat nasty revenge story by a woman scorned (and she happens to be a soap opera star and he happens to be a famous composer), but the semi-fictionalised blog she wrote about her revenge, in the hope of getting a book deal, is quite amusing. At any rate if you have a Facebook account:

I drafted a list of questions to him and fired them off via Facebook, along with a poke and a hatching egg. There were already several messages from him on there, slightly (actually VERY) jealous that I’d superpoked three of my friends and sent four pastries and a video.

You can read the rest of her tale at The Facebook Diaries.
