They say parents do the best they can, but come on, these stage moms and dads could have done so much better! Whether they ripped off their kids’ fortunes, slept with groupies, or wrote tell-all books about their famous offspring, these epic parental missteps simply cannot be excused. Click through the gallery as we issue the following folks a failing grade.

American public is crazy to waste precious hours watching these morons.  You're making them richer for what?

I wonder how much different these parents would have acted if money was not involved. It is sad to prostitute your children for money,but what else can you call it? And a whole new generation is being exploited by people who promote shows like 'Toddlers and Tiaras'.It is sad how money and fame can overthrow the parental instinct to protect your children.

I have never heard of them outside some cheapy so-called reality show that people over the age of 10 wouldn't watch.Were they "american royalty"..ha..ha..like the Kennedys'...real royal !!! Were they big movie stars,singers,dancers,etc...???? I would love to have the contract to sell make-up to that family because I wouldn't need any other customers to be rich!!!!

My God, Jaid Barrymore has the same plastic surgeon as Cher.  I actually thought it was Cher having a bad hair/face day until I read who it was.

Jenner has to be the most disgusting excuse for a parent there is, not to mention the biggest whoremonger in the world...living off the proceeds of her not-so-entertaining, not-so-appealing trio of tramps. Let's not mention the two youngest who are soon to be as disgusting as their older siblings.

after reading all of this, all I can say is ........... "I'm very happy to have the normal quiet (none public, none celebrity or show biz) life that we have!!

Jan 23, 2013 11:46AM
I think what you people failed to recognize, is these "reality" shows are put out there, as so it will distract you from the real world and the crap thats  happeneing all around us..When you see the word  reality, you know it is certainly far from it

What happened to GREAT WOMAN ?  Is this who we have left for our wives and daughters to look upt as role models ???   Lady gaga and Kardasheins and other woman who sell their bodies and souls to money and the devil to make it rich ?   ARE YOU ****NG ME????


What about woman like  Mother Mary , Mother Teresa etc,,, so many more who should be SET examples in our life DAILY instead of these no good woman ... I do not even have to explain anything about the woman who are presented to us nowadays, it is like "they" are trying to force us to swollow a pill down our throats making us accept these woman and this society. The question is who are " they " , now I am sure lot of us know and lot of us don't. 

 What will the future be like if we have these examples ? so sad so sad. 

I have a solution!!!!   turn off the T.V ... and spend less time on the computer and read more educational things.... if there are any left =P

rom the way I see it and maybe others , the world is falling apart but reading these comments make me feel good knowing there still are some people who realize that the illusions we are presented in this world does not have any benefit for us , our family , sons , or daughters.

From Jenner, to Lohan to Gosselin and everywhere inbetween, kiddy exploitation by their parents has been rampant. It does NOT amaze or surprise me that these parents are touted as the all-American family gone wrong. What more can you expect from a country who puts God & country before family. Without a well rounded, well-behaved somewhat normal childhood, it's no wonder these parents and children are so far from what any good parent would want their child to grow to be. I'm so happy that my child knows what real love & support are and that money is not an issue. Regardless of where you come from or what your heritage/familial ties are, every child should learn what the word NO means from an early age and every parent should learn that having a child means you can no longer be self-centered and selfish. If they don't know that, then they shouldn't be allowed to reproduce. The world would be a lot happier, healthier and safer if self-centered, money-hungry people were not allowed to have children.
