    I promise you they will have to snag bits from my book (that Amy S snagged and cherry picked off of) to make it remotely interesting. Because, Amy, you’re not nearly as rogue and interesting the author of MY BOOK …and not YOURS. Sincerely,
    The Artist Notoriously Known As Jean Bergman.

    Amy looks a little bit like Rhonda Roussey, the fighter, another has been; I would like to take both of them out to the drive in and have some fun with them. I would pay attention to Amy hand then watch Rhonda beat her up and then I would make them both take their turn with me; then I would throw them both out and call up Sarah Silverman…now she is hot.

    So this will be shooting during the very same Summer that was too busy for her to shoot BARBIE?
