Here is my comment on his post:
Something about the whole story as it was unfolding struck me as off. Then when i found out who the family was i knew it even before the balloon came down. I have seen two episodes of wife swap (honest!) and this family was one of them. The Dad is a bit narcissistic and 100% insane and his wife is a total enabler. The whole family was a train wreck. It makes one yearn for the days when fame was based on talent and not insanity.I think it all ties into the social need we have to feel better than others. I can turn on Jon and kate plus 8 and watch her be a controlling bitch and him being a distant dickhead and feel better that at least i am not as fucked up as those guys. It used to be that fame was based on the principles of meritocracy. The talented cream rose to the top and was rewarded for it. Now it is the rotten apples and the bruised pears that seem to be getting all the attention.
Its almost enough to make one want to shut off the TV. Who am i kidding that will never happen.
I knew it!
