Clue/Question:  When the actress started appearing in commercials, she became a . . .

Answer:  SELLEBRITY

(Lots of hits, today!  The clue words weren’t all that tough, so I’m guessing many of you struggled with the answer.  We actually did have two new clue words, today.  Both “vault” and “parlay” are going to be new additions to the ralis95 clue word database.  I liked the jumbling of “vault”.  I like it when David takes a one syllable word and makes the jumble look like two syllables.  “Parlay” is a great word.  Outside of gambling circles, you really don’t hear it used that often.  The answer letter layout is largely responsible for so many of your struggles.  Hoyt did a bang up job on it!  Nicely cryptic, indeed.  Of course the answer was a major groaner of a pun.  A real stinker.  Even I had to wince, a bit.  LOL!  Gotta run.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
