Gwen Stefani Speechless over Her 'Crazy' Realistic Wax Statue

Looks like Gwen Stefani really took her song “Don’t Speak” to heart on Wednesday. Or was that the wax figurine of her exact likeness that didn’t speak? It may be a little more difficult to tell who the real No Doubt singer is and who has been immortalized in wax. Stefani, 40, was in Las Vegas Wednesday as her body double was unveiled at the Venetian hotel’s Madame Tussauds. And when the curtain dropped revealing a midriff-baring Stefani to the real Stefani, the songstress said, “That is so me.” For several minutes the mother-of-two stood in awe at her wax statue, touching its abs, staring into the eyes and putting her arm around the figure. “That is so weird,” she told her friends. “I can’t believe it. Can you believe it?” The figure is said to have taken over 500 hours to sculpt and mold and reportedly cost $300,000 to make. “That is crazy,” Stefani said while viewing the statue, six months after sitting down with sculptors for measurements in London. Madame Tussauds organizers said the Stefani was consistently one of the most requested wax figures that customers wanted to see. –Mark Gray

Geno, excellent point on 1). You are right and I see now my phrasing with “Just about any reason to email your Affiliates is a good reason.” is a bit off. As an effective AM you definitely don’t want to become overzealous or down right aggravating… so thanks for pointing that out.
