How do celeb kids handle the paparazzi frenzy?
The paparazzi chase is at an all-time high--stars are followed everywhere, from picking up their dry cleaning to taking their kids to doctor's appointments. Although some think this is part of a celebrity's life and job, we wonder what effect it has on the kids.
Nobody's gotten a decent shot of Nicole and Keith's new baby girl Sunday Rose. They decided, though a picture of their baby could be worth millions, they would keep their little one out of the public eye. But the paparazzi are relentless--and the chase is on. As moms, we wonder to what lengths the paps will go to get a picture of these celebutots. Though Brangelina sold their twins' baby pictures for $15 million and are seen out and about on a daily basis, daddy Brad had this to say about what he calls the paparazzi "hunt":
Yesterday, Angie was taking Maddie off to school. There were 30 paparazzi outside. One guy sticks a video camera in Mad's face, yelling, 'Maddox! Maddox!' He doesn't get a response. He doesn't know my boy. Mad is already savvy to this, unfortunately.
But my 2-year-old dreads being anyplace there are cameras. It scares her. They're all in her face. My kids are faced with this every day! It's disgusting. So we've been run out of L.A. and all the major cities. We just can't live there. You don't understand--this is the hunt, the hunt, the hunt! I thought it might be over a year ago. It's gotten worse.
Seeing this recent picture of Suri Cruise broke our hearts. Though some celebs have tried to establish a law where the paps are not legally allowed to get within a certain range of them and their kids, Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton has called the attempt a "waste of time." He said "there are already enough laws on the books to take care of any problem." Does something tragic have to happen before change occurs? What do you think celebrities should do to keep their children safe?

we--these are already all over the place. Unfortunately.
