Stars Behaving Badly Pt. 2

According to Michael Lohan, his daughter, Lindsay, is in imminent danger. He recently appeared on the Maury Povich Show in a supposed “desperate attempt” to reach out to his famous daughter, who he has described as being addicted to prescription drugs. A tearful Lohan said "Lindsay, I love you with all my heart and ... I am not going to bury you." "You're going to bury me before this is over. I will do anything and everything I have to save your life...You're not in the right state of mind!"

Here’s my question. Why does one need Maury Povich in order to speak to their daughter? Wouldn’t you just speak directly to your child and consult with trained professionals in order to host an intervention. I’m just saying… It seems self-serving to court the media outlets when in such a crisis situation. It reminds me of another Hollywood dad….What’s his name? Oh, yeah…
Jon Gosselin. No surprise that the two Dad’s of the Year award winners have been socializing in recent months. (Maybe they have the same agent;)

Whatever her dad’s motivation, I do agree with the fact that there appears to be cause for concern, as Lindsay’s emaciated frame is alarming. There are frequent reports of her drinking and acting erratically, even after spending time in rehab. Hopefully, there are people around her who will do what’s right and get her the help that she may need…outside of the bright glare of the media spotlight.

Now onto “Bubble Boy!” Hmmm…boy what an oddly interesting family.
Like everyone else, I was glued to the news to see if Falcon, the missing 6-year-old, was inside the floating silver balloon. Then came the news that the balloon had landed but that no one was inside. Horrifying! However, we were relieved to learn that it was all a false alarm because Falcon had been hiding in the family’s attic the whole time. Seems straight-forward enough…until you learn that the family has been heavily pitching a tv show around Hollywood, and have appeared on two segments of Wife Swap. Thus, this whole thing may have been a publicity stunt. Sigh…it seems like in addition to the Swine Flu outbreak, there is also another epidemic sweeping across the country. Its called the PWNS Syndrome (Parents-With-No-Sense). Hopefully you have built up your immunity:)

Happy Parenting,

  1. Yea but you have to ask yourself this...

    When do they EVER not behave badly? They can get away with anything and everything, that's why they do it.

  2. I wonder if the Government can whip up a quick immunization against stupid parenting? Doubtful.
