          The Dr. Phil House: "Make My Kid a Star"

          August 22, 2007

          Do you think your child is destined to be a star? Are you spending your life savings trying to get him or her in the spotlight? Has your life become a non-stop roller coaster of auditions, rejections, lessons, rehearsals, costumes, headshots and agents? The business is cutthroat and competitive, yet thousands of families set out for Hollywood every year, believing their child is the next Dakota Fanning. Dr. Phil helps some wannabe child stars get noticed and at the same time, takes a behind-the-scenes look at stage moms in the throes of battle.

          Part 1 summary:

          Seven kids with stars in their eyes join their mothers in The Dr. Phil House for big-time opportunities auditioning in front of Hollywood’s most esteemed child talent agents. Meet Susan and her daughter, Meagan, 10; Larissa and her three sons, Sasha, 14, Dmitri, 12 and Kyrian, 8; Kim and her daughter, Alaina, 13; Kiki and her daughter, Gracie, 11; and Veronica and her daughter, Maria, 13. As the kids audition, they compete against each other for amazing prizes, such as free rent during pilot season, a Hollywood agent and a $25,000 Sallie Mae scholarship. Will the mother/child teams work well together, or flounder under the pressure? In the first challenge, the moms have 30 minutes to style their children like a star and then take their photograph. While the photos are being printed, they move on to the dance audition. A top dance instructor teaches the kids some hip-hop moves. With only a small amount of time to make up their own routines and rehearse, the kids and moms get to work ” but the pressure gets to be too much for some. Gracie wins the dance audition and a 42-inch plasma television. Then, with their favorite photos in hand, the moms each pitch their child to a talent agent, who chooses the best photograph. Gracie wins again with a trip to Chicago for a national print ad with Sears. The rest of the mothers react to the child’s winning streak, and Veronica wonders if favoritism is at play.
