I Know My Kid's a Star is an elimination-based reality show consisting of teams of wannabe child stars and their stage parents. It might just be the most brilliant idea: Dashing the dreams of parents living vicariously through their children. All the people on the show are so over-the-top, so the fact that an Alexis Arquette-ish single mom named Rocky is like double the personality of anyone else is really saying something. She uses the word "frig," asks if her tampon string is hanging down from her skirt, and tells her daughter repeatedly that she needs to perform well so that they can buy a big house. She is instantly the breakout star of the show, which is probably the only way that she would have it. Clip above.
@eeva: That is the cutest, sweetest thing I have ever heard. Maybe my love of the damaged comes from my favorite doll as a girl: Barbara. Barbra looked like... know the spider-doll head-creature from "Toy Story"? Her head looked like that. 1 eye, gross, patchy hair, no clothes, and her voice box that made her say "mama" no longer worked. When my mom asked if I wanted to take her to the "doll hospital" to get her fixed, I admimantly refused, saying I didn't want her to think I didn't love her just because she looked different.
@KathrynwithaY: YAY for adopting gimpy pets! And "awkward house plants" sounds like a band out of Brooklyn.
@BeckyIva: Wow. Just wow.
