“To pull it off, she works 20 to 22 hours a day. (A few times a month, when she feels the crunch, she spends a full 24 hours at her desk.)”, how gullible do you have to believe such self-torturous fantasy? 2-4h per day for food/bathrooms/sleep? Sure...  https://www.glamour.com/story/danielle-steel-books-interview 

This is just another comical example within the tired trope that how rich people deserve their spoils (Steel reportedly worth $350m and has 6000 Louboutin shoes) because they work OH SO HARD. And how millennials are lazy because they don’t want that. Garbage ideology.

Even if you took the bullshit that she sleeps 2-4h/night at face value – and please don’t! – all that’d prove is how she’s a freak of nature. Anyone else try to go on such sleep ratios for years would end up completely damaged or dead. This is not cause for celebration or worship
