The Favorite Star Mystique

Mel Gibson 1

Mel Gibson 2

Mel Gibson 3

“I, Renee Ashley Baker, want to meet Mel Gibson. He is my absolute favorite star. But–I’m torn and I don’t know what to say to him. (Yes, I do wear glasses)….What I mean is, I feel as though it was I, Renee Ashley Baker, who somehow–via osmosis–put Mel with “Nurse Moore”. So–I’m sad about the “marriage” break up. On the other hand he is Mel Gibson–the “sexiest man alive” Mel Gibson! So–I’m running a contest: “What Should Renee Ashley Baker Say To Mel Gibson?” Should it be–
“I’m glad you got rid of her now you and I can be together?” Or….
“What do you think you’re doing getting rid of Robin–Batman?”….

Statement 1 or Statement 2….Which should it be? Serious or hilarious. (Although something tells me Mel Gibson would laugh –out loud– if either statement came out of me) ….

The public can mail their contest votes to: “What Should She Say To Gerard?” (at rbstudios@yahoo.com)
