Paris Jackson is reportedly doing much better as she recovers from a suicide attempt, and there's still some speculation as to why she decided to try and end her life. However, one theory is that there was a major lack of discipline in her household.
Her uncle, Jermaine Jackson recently spoke out about the tragic events involving his niece, and he feels the whole thing was a major overreaction to her being told she couldn't go to a Marilyn Mansonconcert, which allegedly sparked a huge fight that same night.
He says the whole thing probably could have been avoided if Paris had a little more respect for the rules:
A father who wired his autistic child and recorded teachers bullying his son has set off a legislation movement in New Jersey that hopes to expedite the disciplinary process for teachers who bully students.
The movement hopes to gain traction immediately after a bill was introduced yesterday that
First of all, let's address the fact that Lifetime has debuted their American Supernanny and her name is Deborah Tillman.
Of course, we miss Jo Frost, and the show will never be the same, but we have a feeling we're going to like nanny Deborah too.
So, the new American Supernanny visited a two-mom family, Mandy Sheckles and her partner Amy Paul.
The couple has six biological children, all conceived through donated sperm - the last four children were quads!
Even though they run three daycares in Virginia, they have a lot on their plate raising six children at home. Amy takes care of the kids while Mandy was busy working all day and attached to her cellphone, which distracted her from helping out with the kids.
Using her effective parenting skills, Deborah helped the women to understand techniques that would help them get a better control of their children, especially when it came to bedtime and dinner time.
Just like any family, whether the parents are gay or straight, raising children is just as equally challenging no matter what. This episode helped to prove that all parents have the same issues regardless of their sexuality.
PEREZ HILTON TO STAR IN “GAY DADS OF NEW YORK” REALITY SERIES
PRODUCED BY BUNIM/MURRAY PRODUCTIONS
LOS ANGELES – December 4, 2013 – One of Hollywood’s most colorful personalities is lifting the curtain on gay fatherhood. Gossip guru and media mogul Perez Hilton today announced he’s partnering with Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of The Real World, Project Runway and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and OMG Productions to develop Gay Dads of New York. Set in New York City, the reality docu-series will follow Hilton, who recently became a single father, and a group of gay dads, single and married, as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children.
“What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real,” said Hilton. “Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to - hopefully - love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!"
“I immediately responded to the ‘Gay Dads of New York’ concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998,” said Jonathan Murray, Chairman of Bunim/Murray Productions. "Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”
“I brought the project to Bunim/Murray because of their brilliant storytelling, unbelievable track record in reality television, and what I consider the best eye for casting shows in the business,” said Suzy Unger, OMG Productions. “I have worked with Jon and his team for many years, and they are not only pioneers in the reality space, but they remain groundbreaking producers. We are proud to be working with them.”
Bunim/Murray Productions is currently casting the series, looking for gay dads in the New York City area who want to be in a support group with Hilton. More information can be found at: http://www.bmpcasting.com:16080/casting/gdc/
The series will be executive produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions. Suzy Unger at OMG Productions; Steven Grossman and Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton); and Bunim/Murray’s Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein and Scott Freeman will serve as Executive Producers.
