I'd have to go back and re-read the article to be 100 % sure, but it said she was moving to California and will eventually pursue a masters degree. It doesn't say she is moving to get her degree, just that eventually she will pursue it. It sound like school is an afterthought. I'll cash in on my 15 minutes and oh yeah, will go back to school once there are no more offers. Of course its an incredible boost that Jeff lives out there and they are dating. What a strange and wonderful coincidence eh? It's funny how that worked out all by itself!
Nothing wrong with cashing in on her 15 minutes but don't pretend its something that its not. Jeff is a part of the cashing in too.
