Welcome back, Cat! I do have to disagree with you on one thing- having your kid join you onstage for ONE song at ONE venue is a lot different than approving of your teenager doing a cheesey cover of your own song and having a career and leaving school. Even Katie said on Insider he was right that she was not ready and that doing that song could have caused people not to take her seriously. I also agree with PJ-this was a difficult family situation and no one has been stellar in handling it. Maybe none of us would know what to do.

But you know, some talent agent discovered Katie and she begged her mom - what would you do if you were in her shoes? If you said "No" then would you be passing up your kids only chance of making it big? Would you always wonder "what if"? Of course once the agent found out she was DC's daughter they wanted her to cover ITILY.



Not to be picky about it, but she wasn't discovered by a talent agent. She was "discovered" by a producer named Joel Diamond who, according to their statements at the time, specifically wanted her to cover ITILY from the get-go. Diamond also produced the other version of ITILY that you referenced, the one released by a singer named Kylie. So....in answer to your question, no. For me, it wouldn't be even a little bit hard to decide that this wasn't the right project to launch the career of my 15-year-old daughter. Sorry. Smile

Woops--you're right. It was Kaci, not Kyle, who released ITILY, produced by Joel Diamond. I always get those two names mixed up--I know not why.

I see that DC has posted a letter on his website about his mom's health and that he wants fans to respect his family's privacy. So I'm going to follow his wishes and duck out of this thread. My prayers go out to Evelyn.

Kaci always sticks in my mind when i think of the Partridge Family (my friends used to call me Kaci as my initials are KC, didnt take a rocket scientist to figure that out! Razz )

Good idea about ducking out, i will join you. Even though i haven't been that active in this thread. We could all argue for hours about David and his family. And we wouldn't get anywhere, whats been said has been said a hundred times before. Time for something new eh? Smile

I quite agree with all of you, even though I started this thread, I think that we should let sleeping dogs lie - if you know what I mean. Like you said we could go on for hours discussing David's family but I feel at this moment in time, we should leave be for a while and, move onto a new subject. So are we all agreed on this site, that we should respect David's wishes?

Such a complicated situation, and so sad that outside intervention interferes in their lives. Such is the way of a celebrity I guess. My prayers also go out to the family.
