The waiters at the five-star restaurant were in a verifiable tizzy. Dishes clanged as they rushed to and fro, some pressing tablecloths into white waves of silken smoothness and others sweeping invisible specks from the already spotless floor. Above it all, their manager screamed, his usual baritone sliding into a frantic tenor.

"Hurry up! Our VIP guests are due to arrive in five minutes, and we cannot be anything less than perfect. These are some of the biggest names in pop culture, and I will not have them ridiculing my restaurant due to the likes of you! Now, turn those sad excuses for cloth swans into works of art before I find other uses for them!"


TASK
This month, your task is to recreate the below seating chart for the restaurant's esteemed guests. Specifically, you will need to determine which celebrity is sitting in each chair (chairs are labeled 1-12). As is to be expected with celebrities, they have a list of particular requests that you should heed when filling in your chart! You can find these requests under the "clues" section below.

Once you've completed the logic puzzle, you may write a short story from the perspective of one of the celebrities listed below for an optional bonus ticket to July's Participation Raffle. Your story must center around the gathering of celebrities described in the main task and should fall between 250 and 750 words. Why have the celebrities decided to get together? What is the occasion, if any? How do they get along once together?

This was really promising until I read the list of celebs and the nature of the clues. I don't follow celebs in the press so have not a clue about who is who's ex or not. Sadly this would mean me having to spend far too long looking up these people and as I have no interest, then I'll pass on this contest. Good Luck to those who do enter.
