Hey everyone. I was just interviewed for a piece airing tomorrow morning on the Today Show on NBC. I was asked my opinion about stage parents and kids in show biz. Set your Tivo's! I'm not sure of the exact time of the segment but I may find out later this evening.
It seems they may be doing a series of stories on the topic because this morning, Matt and Meredith had a feature on David Archuleta (from "American Idol") and the rumors about his stage dad berating him, sinking him with last week's bad song choice, etc. There have been a lot of stories on the gossip sites about his behavior towards Tiffany Evans years ago, when Tiffany faced David in the "Star Search" finals. The feature basically said that with Archuleta, the new VH1 show "I Know My Kid's a Star" (which, by the way, is HORRIBLE) and I guess also the new revival of "Gypsy" on Broadway, stage parents are back in the spotlight.
