Myth: Véronique is a mild-mannered VES concentrator in Leverett House with a unique fashion sense and a biting wit.

Fact: Better known as “Madame Veronica,” Véronique is actually a part-time flash dancer, part-time brothel owner masquerading as a mild-mannered VES concentrator in Leverett House with a unique fashion sense and a biting wit. Her documentary film, “How I Pretended To Be a Mild-Mannered Harvard Student, Even Though I’m Actually a Sex Fiend,” will premier on Bravo! at 5 a.m. next Wednesday.

Fact: Her application to the Celtic Club is still pending.

Myth: Kristi has never been single.

Fact: For a few seconds last Thursday, Kristi’s facebook.com profile listed her as “single” due to a programming glitch. After pacifying her boyfriend, placing calls to family and friends urging them not to jump to drastic conclusions and sending a mass e-mail to members of The Seneca, who had already begun stockpiling Kleenex and bee-lining it to Lowell, Kristi sent a politely irate e-mail to Mark Zuckerberg and the error was promptly corrected.
