Disney Kid Today, Hollywood Slut Tomorrow: Why We Need To Foster Role Models Outside Of The Entertainment Biz

This is just freakin’ sad.  Brent Bozell’s latest column this week focuses on a recent storyline from the sleazy show Gossip Girl, in which teen star Hillary Duff joins in a threesome for some girl-on-girl action specifically designed to titillate the teenage viewing audience.  While I have allowed my daughter to adore Miley Cyrus as it seems her message is always a wholesome one, how long before we see photographs of sweet Miley vomiting behind some Hollywood night club, followed by the obligatory video from the steps of the rehab center?  I suppose I have been slow to grasp what many of you have probably realized long ago…parents cannot rely on an innocent, freckle-faced child star to serve as a decent role model for any length of time, and certainly not for the length of our children’s adolescence.  We have seen the slow slide into the gutter of the Olson twins, Jessica Simpson, Brittany Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and now the cherry on top of our smut sundae is “Lizzie McGuire” in a menage-a-trois during prime time.  Thank you, Hollywood.
