It came as quite a shock to many many, especially the part about an expected child, given the fact that Mel is 16.
When I saw this message in her guest book, I immediately messaged her this:
When 16 hours passed and I got no reply I was pretty much convinced that she was actually leaving. Many others reacted the same way as me, sending her messages or writing in her guest book. It's sort of like faking your death and finding out how much people actually care about you (ie who shows up at your funeral). From the amount of good wishes for her future life Mel got, she must now realize how beloved she is in Dollywood, if she didn't all ready.
As you may have guessed I was very relived when I got this message in the mail:
"It was a joke, APRIL FOOLS"
Oh Mel, I'm sure you got a laugh out of this! I know everyone will leave stardoll sometime, but I think I speak for many when I say I'm glad your time isn't now.
Did you believe she was leaving?
