Late in her career Barbie meets hard times. Losing market share to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Barbie stars in a Broadway musical, which closes halfway through the first act. After her seventh marriage to Ken falls apart, Barbie turns to alchohol, but is rejected by the Betty Ford Clinic. Aging, alone and financially ruined, she moves to Fort Lauderdale, takes a job as a taxi dispatcher, and nurses an addiction to extra dry martinis with chocolate olives. She is occasionally seen in cheap beachside motels with a Liberace impersonator.
