First off, we hope the kid is feeling better — because the mom will never, ever, let them forget this.
Paige Wiser got to review Glee! Live for the Chicago Sun-Times. She was pretty excited, asked if she could take her kids, to which she got approved because her "cute kids' reaction would be more than welcome" as part of the story!
But that's not how it worked out.
Her son fell off his chair. And then her daughter was hurling into a cotton-candy bag. So she had enough and bounced with her kids three songs later.
But she still had to write a review, so she reviewed songs she thought they'd sing, which they ended up not singing. She got called on it, and then fired for fabricating the story.
We can understand her thought process, but not actually landing on the decision to just make shizz up. That's when you just tell your editor that your kids got sick, and you couldn't do the review, and that you're really sorry.
If there is one thing someone can be sympathetic with, it's getting a puking kid out of public!
