Invent me some True Confessions

I just learned that True Confessions magazine, along with its affiliates True Love, True Story, and True Romance, still are alive and thriving, and are "desperate" for new stories. They pay 3 cents a word, and like stories to be roughly 4,000-10,000 words in length. For those of you who don't wish to do the math yourself, that's $120 to $300 per story.

Dude. I can totally invent some first-person confessionals. Help me brainstorm here.

From their website, these are samplings of the story titles on their magazine covers:

My Mommy Is a Nun
I Tried to Kill My Sister
My Homeless Mom Crashed My Wedding
My Pastor Raped Me
Naughty Nights with My Sexy Neighbor
I Seduced a Student [hey, that's the plot of my latest chick-lit! heh...]
I Attended My Own Funeral

You get the idea. Throw me some suggested titles! I'll totally try writing some of them. The more Jerry-Springer-ish, the better.
