Melanie Griffith: “I get nasty tweets. Most people tell me I look horrible”


Here’s a story that makes me want to give Melanie Griffith a hug. Melanie was asked about how she looks so great while at an event to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. FYI – Melanie and her husband, Antonio Banderas, donated over $100,000 to the Children’s Hospital of LA earlier this year, in addition to gifting them with medical equipment. They did this rather quietly and without much fanfare. Anyway, at this event, Melanie told US Weekly that “Most people are telling me I look horrible” and that “The tweets I get are really nasty.” Noooo! Twitter has a lot of positive aspects, but it can really be a haven for trolls. Here’s more of what she told US Weekly:

Posing for photographs at the Oct. 20 Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Gala: Noche de Ninos, the Oscar-nominated star looked slim and sexy in a strapless, curve-hugging floral gown by Dolce & Gabbana, with Miu Miu platform sandals, red lips, and a tousled up-do.

But it seems not everyone thinks the 55-year-old blonde is aging well. Us Weekly caught up with Griffith on the red carpet, where she revealed that folks on Twitter have had some not-so-nice things to say about her appearance of late.

“Most people are telling me I look horrible,” the Working Girl actress told Us. “The tweets I get are really nasty.”

Still, the star — whose daughter Dakota Johnson stars in the new Fox sitcom Ben & Kate — appeared to be in good spirits all night. She worked the room like a pro, smiling and laughing as she chatted with husband Antonio Banderas, pal Jamie Lee Curtis, and supermodel Heidi Klum, who received a “Courage to Care” award from the hospital.

So what’s the secret to Griffith’s composure in the face of criticism? Modesty. And exercise.

“I don’t know if I look that great,” she demurred. “[But] I work out a lot. I have a trainer that I [work with] four times a week, and I do hot yoga.”

[From US Weekly]

That’s awful! Melanie is in great shape, she’s been looking very thin and toned lately. She has gone a little too far with the plastic surgery, but it’s settling for her and she looks good. I find her really pretty. It makes me feel for her to hear her say most people say she looks horrible. It’s like she can’t take a compliment and it sounds like she’s taking the criticism to heart. There are so many nasty people on Twitter. I wish she wouldn’t pay it any mind.

Getting back to Melanie and her husband of 16 years, Antonio Banderas, I’m so glad to see them together at this event! We’ve heard that they’re having problems, maybe related to Banderas’ rumored cheating, and it’s nice to see them on the red carpet together. They also posed with Heidi Klum and Jamie Lee Curtis. I love these pics of Jamie Lee kissing Melanie. As for Melanie’s tight busy dress, the print looks like 80s curtains and it’s not a good look on her. The skirt part around the bottom is particularly fug. Maybe that’s why she was feeling insecure that night.

    Jamie Lee Curtis look fabulous !! As for Melanie Griffith, I’ll follow her on twitter ASAP and hug her !

  2. serena says:

    She should have go with a larger size, the dress is obliviously too small and it pains me just to see how tight it actually is.

    I love so much Jamie Lee Curtis!

  3. Harpreet says:

    Celebitchy, you should check out younger pictures of Melanie, she is a DEAD RINGER for Kristen Stewart!!!

  4. Tabby says:

    She looks lovely. Evidently she has fallen foul of a few jealous trolls.
    The body language between her and Antonio is bad though. Jamie Lee looks more into her than her husband does! :(

  5. dorothy says:

    Jamie Lee looks amazing. As for Melanie Griffith she has become a caricature of her former self. Sad, she was a beautiful woman. Too much plastic surgery.

    • Esmom says:

      She looks really, really different. A little bit like Jane Fonda. Maybe they have the same surgeon.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Agree. I find her comparable to Meg Ryan. Once, so beautiful…then they – unnecessarily – messed with their faces too much.

    • blasted1 says:

      Yeah, Melanie looks pretty bad and I think she should sue the plastic surgeon that did that to her, because she just has to know what a hack job it was. I’ve seen other celebs who have had “work” done and they look really good. Plus, this really isn’t news because she’s looked awfully messed up for close to 10 years now. She should have left herself alone or gone with some other doctor. Having said all that “mean stuff”, I think it’s pretty evil to message a person and tell them that they’re ugly.

  6. Seagulls says:

    I wouldn’t say horrible, but I almost can’t tell that’s Melanie Griffth.

  7. Riana says:

    Plastic surgery in Hollywood is like everything else in Hollywood. There’s a lot of people ready to give you what you want without limits, whether it’s good for you or not.

    So many of these leathery over-plumped faces are the result of doctors who don’t care about ethics or quality and merely want to give the patient everything they ask for…even if they know this will be the end result.

    I’ve seen women in small towns with better boob jobs and botox than women who supposedly have the best doctors and most money.

    • Macey says:

      You are correct about the Hollywood surgery. I have a Dr. friend that does Botox, fillers, etc. and he is always hearing how his patients are afraid they’ll look like those Hollywood wives types with the PS. He said there are 2 classes of ppl that get the worst medical care, the poor and the rich. the latter b/c there will always be Dr’s who wont say no and will do want they want regardless of how bad/unnatural the outcome will be.
      I live in small town and know lots of women that use these things and you would never know it but then they are seeing Dr’s who will flat out refuse to do what they want if they dont think the result will be a favorable one.

      • Really? says:

        Also, if you’re “poor” as compared to the Housewives “rich,” well then you’re forced to do it less to cut down on costs, and voila, much more natural looking!

        These ladies with means just end up looking mean because they get aggressive with every single line and rush to their plastic surgeon to eradicate it. The doctors get richer, while their patients are walking around looking like they’re embalmed.

        There needs to be a balance between looking rested and looking young. Poor rich ladies. Money can’t buy you love, and it certainly can’t buy back your youth.

        But, i’ll be the first to admit, i’d much rather cry in a mansion.

    • gg says:

      Leathery skin isn’t a result of surgery. Plan and simple baking in the sun when you’re young can do that. And genes.

  8. DanaG says:

    Melanie should ignore them she looks great and a little less plastic then she was. I would think after 16 years everyone has ups and downs. I always got the impression Melanie loved him more then he loves her and she would do anything to make it work. The dress should be a size up though too wrinkly.

  9. fabgrrl says:

    If I were famous, I would let my agent/assistant/whomever handle my “official” twitter and never look at it.

    Also, I love Jamie Lee Curtis!

  10. judyjudy says:

    I don’t understand twitter . Why open yourself up to that kind of negative background music.

  11. Blue says:

    She went overboard with whatever she did to her face. Her and Antonio look uncomfortable. The body language is speaking volumes.

  12. tru tru says:

    Miss Curtis is looking HOT!!

    Poor Mel, I wouldn’t even be on twitter if I were her.

    Is she working on anything??
    Keeping track of Banderas is enough to worry the horns off of a billy goat.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      She is!
      A few weeks ago, she debuted her role as Sabrina’s mother on Raising Hope. Her real life mom Tippi Hedren played her mother on that episode. And then the very next show that aired was Ben & Kate starring Melanie’s daughter Dakota. So there were 3 generations of acting women from the same family on the same network in one hour. I wonder if that’s some sort of record or something?

  13. Thinkaboutit says:

    Whatever I might think of anyone’s looks, I would NEVER even think of saying something negative to them. Why go out of your way to be mean to someone you don’t even know?? That’s sick and deranged.

    • Lemonade says:

      because twitter is relatively anonymous so you can get away with it without looking or feeling like a jerk.
      Then again, there are those who WILL say it to your face. I was in the elevator at a hotel during the summer and the guy in there with me told me I would be gorgeous if I dropped about 15 pounds. He said he meant it as “sincerely as possible” but it was still a douche move considering I’m happily 5’5 and 146 pounds. A size 6 would not make me any happier than a size 8.

      • Scarlett says:

        THat guy in the elevator was “negging” you. Google PUA’s and you’ll see it’s a technique they use. You know what it means? It means he took one look at you, knew you were out of his league, and attempted a technique that is supposed to make you feel bad enough about yourself to attempt to win him over.

        Don’t let the next douche get away with it.

      • Palefire says:

        WHAT ! Can I personally apologize for this. Hugs. What a class A A hole!!!!!!! I’ve had people say rude ish right to my face too. People somehow think since reality tv……. confessional side bars everyone wants to hear their opinion. That’s a fine height & weight. I would of farted in that freaking elevator and made him smell it!!!! Shmeeehhhhhhhh.

      • Spofford says:

        ^Scarlett is right.

        I downloaded this audio book for guys on how to pick up girls thinking it was something else. No, really, the title was misleading and I’m a straight girl myself. Anyway, I listed to some of it for kicks and suddenly I understood some of the weird conversations strange men would try to strike up with me.

        Tell the next guy he’d be tolerable if he’d STFU.

    • Kimlee says:

      Isn’t that what people do on this site.

      • TQB says:

        No, it’s not. Yes, we’re anonymously bitchy and critical, but it’s not directed to the people. Someone on Twitter or FB receives those messages directly. Maybe it’s splitting hairs. The whole LeAnn thing really creeps me out, where it turns out she’s actually reading gossip sites… my god, I guess I just assume that if I were rich and famous I would have way better things to do with my time then troll around the internet looking for people saying bad things about me.

  14. Arlene says:

    Jame Lee must have the BIGGEST portrait of herself hidden away in the attic, she looks stunning.

  15. Roxy says:

    I thought Antonio seemed to lean away from her as well. Not in love with her, at all. Compare Jamie Lee and Melanies skintone and necks. Jamie Lee is older , no? Yet, she has much better skin tone and younger neck. Man, the neck is the 1st thing to go gals! Jamie either has a better surgeon or excellent genes. Mel has drinking problems which adversely affects your skin too as does smoking. Yuck! But Poor Mel had to stand next to heidi Klum? Pulleeez, who wouldn’t have self esteem issues standing next to her. Plus, she’s single and Antonio is still handsome, you know he was very happy to see Heidi. That would make any wife feel bad. Jamie is the best person in these pics. She is amazing. Just sayin’…

  16. Ann says:

    Jamie Lee Curtis is a hot tamale!

  17. ladybert62 says:

    Jamie Lee Curtis looks great – and the way that she wears her black/grey hair is exactly the way that I wear mine! Hope mine looks as good as hers!!

    Wish I had her figure!! ^)^

  18. valleymiss says:

    *sigh* Melanie was so great in Working Girl. Then she done messed with her face. I wonder if she actively pursues work now? And if so, is she not getting hired because her face looks like that? She’s 55 and a good actress. She could be playing a mom role, or a politician or lawyer role.

    • Liza Jane says:

      Melanie and her mother, Tippi Hendren were just on Raining Hope together,Melanie looked gorgeous on it and I had forgotten how sweet she was!! Tippi at 80 looked amazing too..who knew that Alfred Hitchcock destroyed her career,she opened her animal sanctuary and kept quiet all these years! The 2 of them have a good relationship and honestly if I was Melanie,I would kick Antonio to the curb,his looks are going too and after the hell her life was with Don Johnston,she deserves some loving without always having to wonder what her husband is up to.

  19. bea says:

    Obviously, the people on Twitter never saw her when she was young! And for her current age, she looks great as well. It seems to be a crime to be female and aging.

  20. Cam S says:

    I have always liked Melanie. Social Media allows EVERYONE to have an opinion, however, I wish her well. I personally think it is her husband that has seen better days.

  21. Ellie66 says:

    Melanie looks good she is 55 after all. Antonio looks icky. Jamie Lee looks amazing!! That’s some gracefully aging.

  22. j.eyre says:

    To contact somebody via any outlet solely to let them know how much you dislike their appearance seems like such a waste of time and energy.

    I will join you in the cyber-hug for Melanie.

  23. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Jamie Lee Curtis is making me want short, grey hair. Funny, I’ve been watching Walking Dead and Melissa McBride reminds me so much of Jamie, looks-wise.

  24. Audrey says:

    No, she DOES look awful. “Toned” does not pretty make.

  25. Erinn says:

    Oy… I thought she was older than 55. I wouldn’t say she’s aging particularly well. My dad’s 55… this woman looks a good deal older than he does.

  26. HadleyB says:

    Antonio looks sick, thinner than usual and his face is pale, eyes are busted. Is he ill or maybe just hitting the booze too often?

    I do feel bad for Mel, but she IS an actress — you can’t have it both ways and only get positive comments from people – this isnt the 1950′s.

    However I think people on Twitter are worse than on FB … way too mean and blunt for just no reason at all. But I guess you take the good with the bad? She’s not in accounting where no one gives a crap about her face. She is in hollywood. I am sure the money they / she make is much more than a file clerk at the law office.

  27. lucy2 says:

    Easiest solution? Get off twitter.
    If she doesn’t want to do that, either block the rude people, or retweet their nasty tweets and let the nicer fans go after them for being so awful. Make it about that person’s rudeness rather than her looks.

  28. hoya_chick says:

    Jamie Lee looks fabulous! I get that you are a fan of Melanie CB, and not to be mean but she looks like she belongs in that RHOBH post yesterday! Too much plastic surgery and looks nothing like her former self. If she had allowed her self to age naturally/gracefully with even minor tweaks and not gone overboard she probably would have looked like Jamie Lee. When will actresses learn! Plastic surgery does not make you look younger it makes you look fake and weird and only worse as you age.

    She seems like a nice lady, and that is great what she and Antonio did for the hospital. I am sure she is aware of how she looks and if she and her husband are fine with it she shouldn’t let trolls on twitter affect her confidence. I hate twitter, that’s why I am not on it. Get off twitter Melanie!

    • TQB says:

      I second this. Melanie has gone too far, and it’s a shame because in the end her face looks older (and weirder) than her body. The skin on her chest and arms really looks pretty good and obv. her figure is great. Leave your faces alone people!!

      But at the same time, get the heck off Twitter. It’s not worth it. Yes, people should behave better and not use an anonymous platform to take cheap shots at others, but it’s just so easy to shut them off. Just delete the account. Easy.

      • cs says:

        +3
        Let’s not lie. Melanie doesn’t look great for her age. But, she did it to herself since no one forced her to mess with face and lips. Along with her alcohol/drug additions and smoking. That’s why she looks bad. Jamie Lee looks so much better and younger than Melanie. Melanie could pass for her 60′s. Her Mother on the hand looks damn good for 80 years old. They could pass for sisters.
        Melanie is not one I ever considered a great HW beauty even in her younger years but she was attractive and sexy.
        I know men thought she was hot back in the day.

  29. bns says:

    I wish social networking would die. I can’t handle the oversharing and narcissism.

  30. Jaded says:

    I saw Melanie on a TV interview a year or so ago and she was absolutely lovely. She’s funny, painfully honest and doesn’t appear to have a phony bone in her body. She was very honest about the substance abuse issues and has been clean for several years, although she readily admitted that as an addictive personality, she’s always at risk of relapsing. She’s an A+ in my book!

    Also, Jamie Lee rocks – I too have let my short hair go natural and now love my grey streaks – I’ve named them after all the rotten men I’ve known!

  31. dcypher1 says:

    Tweaked or not melanie looks good. She looked great on raising hope and she was really funny on that show.

  32. Xogami says:

    She does, google pics of her legs, they look like leather!

  33. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    I feel badly that anyone would say that to her on Twitter. That’s horribly rude and just hurtful. I do not think she’s aging well and that the plastic surgery she has had makes it worse. I think if she hadn’t had any she’d look a lot better.

    Jamie Lee Curtis, otoh, is aging well. She looks absolutely gorgeous and fit and healthy. I love her outfit!

  34. blonde on the dock says:

    Smoking,booze and too much sun will do this to you.

  35. kct says:

    This is one case where being so thin is working against her. I think she’d look so much better a little more filled out, and if she wore more age appropriate clothing (like Jamie Lee).

  36. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like Melanie, but look at her neck. My boyfriend has a crush on Jamie Lee, and I can see why…I love her in her Activia commercials and she was on the View with no makeup….looked great.

    • Melissa says:

      I agree – look in the pic where Jamie Lee is kissing Melanie and look at both of their necks – it’s crazy. I like Melanie, but she’s not aging well. It may be too much plastic surgery, but bad genes and some hard living when she was younger could add to it, too.

  37. Kloops says:

    Poor Melanie. She’s definitely a cautionary tale. Whatever Jamie Lee is doing is absolutely amazing. Don’t know if she’s just got good genes, but she doesn’t appear to have messed with her face and having a little meat on her bones is the way to age. She’s nailing it. I’d buy whatever she’s selling.

  38. bagladey says:

    Jamie Lee looks fantastic. Obviously less is more. Everybody in Hollywood should take note of Jamie Lee and start doing whatever it is that she’s doing.

  39. taxi says:

    MG & JLC both had blond mothers who starred in Hitchcock movies. They may have known each other for quite a while.

    Jamie Lee looks terrific. Poor Melanie. Too much alcohol, tobacco, sun, fillers, & ps will do that. She stays trim but often wears clothes that are too tight & age-inappropriate.

  40. shewolf says:

    She probably would show off her sketchy surgeries so much if she just didnt look high as a kite all the time. Its that combo that just makes her look a mess because otherwise she’s lovely. I also love her dress.

    Another thought is her hair colour… doesnt work with her age so much.

  41. Palermo. says:

    I’m sorry, but why is a grown woman, much less a celebrity, on Twitter in the first place? You are just opening yourself up to criticism

  42. hatsumomo says:

    Ok, this does make me feel bad for Melanie. She strikes me as a sweetie and not a negative person at all, despite her alcohol and drug issues. Its just, she DID get all that awful plastic surgery and Im sure she’s well aware of how she looks now. I want to give her hug and tell her it will be ok. As for her dress, *shrugs* its a party and she’s an older woman, if she wants to dress up that way let her! Jamie Lee does look amazing though! Must be that damn yogurt…

  43. vixo says:

    People are indeed very cruel but I find ironic that all these procedures ended up aging Melanie. I thought she looked much older than her 55 yrs old. Jamie, on the other hand, is stunning.

  44. the original bellaluna says:

    What is it about the internet that makes people think they can bash someone directly like that?

    I get that we’re on a gossip site, but we’re not sending ugly comments directly to the recipient. (OK, maybe some of us are, but I’M NOT, unless I specifically address it as such.)

    I really feel for Melanie. She’s been through a lot in her life, and she looks way more into Antonio than he looks into her.

    I really enjoyed JLC’s guest arc on NCIS (though I didn’t like her character).

  45. Liza Jane says:

    I’m sorry but Heidi Klum is the worst in these pictures..too tan,too much make up and. a fixed smile.she looks 50 and a day!! Way too over processed!! And I think Melanie’s sweetness shines through!

  46. SleepyJane says:

    I’ve only seen her in one movie. I think it was called Milk Money or something like that. I was pretty young. She was so gorgeous, I couldn’t get over it.

    I’m sorry, she does look awful. But, I would NEVER tweet her to advise her of such. I would hate to see the tweets I would get if I were a celebrity. Ugh.

  47. Madriani's Girl says:

    Don’t hate me but I think she looks awful. Too many cigarettes, too much tanning, and low rent cosmetic surgery. And he just looks like a straight-up pedophile.

  48. skuddles says:

    That tat… UGH! But I do agree she has a slammin’ bod for a 55 year old (any age for that matter).

  49. logan says:

    Melanie just looks like all the other plastic, putty filled hollywood sheep. Not horrible, but more cooked trout like. Big lips, pulled skin, orange hue, extentions, and big fake boobs. Jamie Lee on the other hand looks FANTASTIC.
    Not saying she may have had some work done, but she looks like a woman of her age should look—healthy, fit and happy.

  50. SamiHami says:

    Melanie has a LOT of miles on her and it shows all over her face. Years of hard living, smoking and lots of budget plastic surgery ruined what looks she had, and she was never very pretty to begin with.

    That being said, only a complete jerk would send hateful tweets like that. What would be the point of doing such a thing? Besides, even though I think she looks awful, beauty is subjective.

  51. Madison says:

    Jamie Lee Curtis looks grea, Melanie would look so much better if it wasn’t for the botox, filler or whatever else she did her face.

  52. Lulu says:

    I have nothing bad to say about Melanie and how she looks. I have great respect for how she has turned her life around. I think she deserves to be adored.

    The photos of her and JLC are amazing. Good for JLC for showing her support and affection like that. Too bad her own husband couldn’t rise to the occasion.

  53. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Poor Melanie. I wish she had left her face alone, I am sure she would have aged as lovely as her Mum.

    I recently saw ‘The Skin I Live In’ starring Antonio Banderas. It was great and he was great in it. Highly recommend it.

  54. videli says:

    I can’t help but liking Melanie, probably because the Working Girl. I always though there something sad and broken about her, like that little girl she played in Night Moves. Oh well, probably just silly conflating of real life and movie roles.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      She’s always made me sad. She was not raised by anyone. She was shacking up with Don Johnson at 14. She was just left to deal with life alone.

      No she does not look good but she looks like she has let go of a lot of the plastic so perhaps she has finally learned that she is a worthwhile person? Maybe she won’t make me sad when she is 60.

  55. sbwillson says:

    I love the picture of Jamie Lee and Melanie Griffith–they are both daughters of Alfred Hitchcock movie stars!

  56. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Talk about aging gracefully. Jamie Lee Curtis. HOTNESS.

  57. boredsuburbanhousewife says:

    I feel sorry for her. I feel like everything we are talking about with her — messing with her face, wearing too tight fugly dresses — is all try-too-hard driven by her desire to hang onto Antonio. She has said as much in interviews. It must be exhausting — is he really worth it?

    She shoulda married a cool guy like Jamie Lee did — Christopher Guest.

  58. Amy says:

    She was on the season premiere of Raising Hope, and I was actually surprised at how good she looked. Sure she’s not the Melanie of old, but she didn’t look as freakish as I expected her to.

  59. Dap says:

    I absolutly love to see how many people on this page are saying that Melanie Griffith looks good while most posters on the GB’s post agree that Gisele looks horrible. Obviously, going on twitter to tell anyone how awful he/she looks is stupid, mean and weird, but MG doesn’t look good at all (Unless you mean good in a Meg Ryan kind of way).

  60. ZenB!tch says:

    Melanie should not be on Twitter. It’s not her body people comment on, it’s her face. There have always been super nasty comments about her. She probably didn’t hear them, didn’t listen or did not believe they were so representative of popular opinion. Melanie is the original Real Housewife. I forgot about her yesterday in the RHOBH thread, when I said it was Barbara Hershey. Barbara was the one who started the lips but not the full on mask.

    She is one of the examples I use in my theory of not starting up so young. I don’t think I recall her ever looking natural, except in photos of her from the 1970s. I’m only 12 years younger. I should remember her looking human.

    She seems to have toned it down a lot but it’s too late. She has all of the wrinkles and none of the original beauty in her face.

    Look at this as a cautionary tale. I wonder if there would have been Twitter 20 years ago, Mel might not have done that to herself. She always made me sad.

    The irony is that I bet a lot of the RHOBH are part of the same group of 1990s Melanie bashing 20 somethings and do not see that they have become Melanie. It’s sad all-around.

  61. Syn says:

    Very fair skinned people age earlier and have more wrinkles, sooner. She should have used hats and sunscreen her whole life.

  62. molly says:

    They both look older. Better stay together.

  63. Zombie Shortcake says:

    If the dress were a solid color she’d look fabulous.

  64. Genevieve says:

    I think she looks good. Her plastic sx was looking really bad there for awhile, but it does looks like it’s settling in nicely. I hope things are good with her & her husband.

  65. Snowpea says:

    I dont use Twitter but I have to say, who in God’s name are these freaks that anonymously post HIDEOUS stuff to people like Melanie, and here in Australia, an ex model named Charlotte Dawson, who went on to attempt suicide?

    I am astonished and disgusted and ashamed of these people.

    Would they say it to their face? NO. What do these people get out of this? Honestly it makes me wanna weep with shame.

    PS I LOVE MG. She has always struck me as being a very sweet, sensitive person.

  66. april says:

    She recently was on Jimmy Kimmel and she looked really good and definitely is a smart woman inspite of her soft voice.

    I agree also that her bad plastic surgery has toned down or has been corrected.

  67. Nina W says:

    It’s a shame she ever went under the knife.

  68. Annie says:

    She actually looks quite nice in most of these photos. She *can* look pretty on occasion. But the reasons she often looks horrible is too much lip filler, overtanned leathery dehydrated skin and really bad mutton-dressed-as-lamb type style in general. I don’t see much in the way of surgery so much as bad fillers.

    In the first photo, Melanie is looking at Antonio with such warmth, almost adoringly. And there used to be lots of photos of them in which those sweet looks were mutual.

    She looks great. I agree she’s had too much plastic surgery but honestly it’s starting to look a lot better. It’s sad to hear that she’s actually being affected by trolls. Whenever I think of Mel I think of her sweet sexy voice and it makes my heart melt a little. :)
