Larry Birkhead and Dannielynn: The Reality TV Show

by at . Comments

This is a worse idea than hiring Britney Spears to babysit your children.

Larry Birkhead is close to finalizing a deal that will showcase himself and daughter Dannielynn in a reality TV show.

"I don't want to give away something yet," Birkhead told The Daily News this week. "It's basically the 'day in the life of daddy duties.'

But is it really necessary, Larry? We've been on your site throughout this ordeal - but can't say we approve of sticking your one-year old child in the celebrity spotlight just to make a few more bucks.

"The truth is, people came to me with pitches, and I haven't accepted anything. It's something they continue to talk to me about. It's multiple networks. I'm listening to what they have to say. I turned down ["Celebrity Rap Superstar"].

That's a shame. Who wouldn't have wanted to see Birkhead battle it out with Perez Hilton and Jason Wahler for the honor of... best celebrity rapper?

Overall, Larry is sick of questions about the $1.7 million he received from OK! magazine for its exclusive photo shoot with him and Dannielynn. He says the media should "Let Anna rest in peace, and let me move on."

Note to Birkhead: STARRING IN A REALITY SHOW ISN'T THE WAY TO DO THAT!

"My daughter is my focus now. I'm being a great dad," Birkhead said. "She's teething. She's got about eight teeth. Everything is great with her. She chomps on me every day. All she has to worry about is her Barney video."

And, soon enough, the boom mics that will be hanging over her every move.

I hope he does get a show. Dannielynn is a little doll, and it would be great to watch her grow up. Like it or not...Larry is a celebrity now, and has to support himself and her. I know I would watch it. The baby is a nothing but an adorable little doll, and I am all for it.

I hope they do a reality show. Why not call it "A day in the life of Dannielynn". She is an adorable tyke, and it would be fun to watch her grow up. I hope Larry accepts it, and that Howard gets to visit. The money will help take care of Anna's little doll. I sure would watch it. I see nothing wrong with it. The sooner, the better.

It is the public that keeps Larry and Dannylynnin hte public eye. He is accustomed to fame and DannyLynn sill always be famous. Maybe it is the norm for both of them. Heis a good dad. Give him a break. He needs a mama for hte baby tho.

If Larry does a Reality show it would be one that I would not miss. I can't get enough of him and Danneilynn, they are very happy together and I just love seeing that. However, I do agree with some of these others that it may not be the best thing to do in Danneilynn's interest, but then again she is too small to know the difference and these family reality shows never last but for 2 or 3 seasons at the most. Can't everyone see that Larry IS going through a lot of stress, he's lost 26 pounds, this mess has got to be hard on him....I shouldn't let it bother me like it does... I just wish people would stop the negative remarks, he does not deserve it.

I'm with Kim--there's no reason to subject Dannielynn to more drama except that her father is more interested in money and fame than in protecting his child. It's shamefull.

Larry has to earn money to pay for all the law suits...until ALL of these are over he will constantly be in the spotlight. I am convinced that the "Bitches of Birkwick" namely "Dopey", Arthur and Cosby hurriedly and greedily conspired to make money...causing Cosby to write a slanderous ill researched book {the truth is beginning to come out now that she is in the Bahamas doing what she should have done before the book went to print}. I hope both Larry and HK$ sue her "knickers" off!!!
The above is the GREED factor! Lets get to the Inquests where I am sure that HK$ must be found guilty of at least negligence if not greater responsibility....softly softly catchee HK$

How do you think child stars get their start.Dannielynn would not in any way be the first child in a show or movie,Soap ect.That has gone on for many years..Theyhave child labor laws for that reason and the studios have to follow them very closely.It Arthur had this child IMO she would be much much worse off.

It bothers me that he said "he doesn't want to give anything away" that makes me think that the show is scripted. But then I don't suppose that should be shocking since I am sure all of his "candid" photos posing as a father as well as his interviews are all also premeditated. The reality show is just a continuation of his perpetual fraud.

I THINK BIRKHEAD WAS (AND IS) INVOLVED WITH "UNCLE" HOWARD STERN. I LIKE LARRY, BUT BELIEVE RITA COSBY. SO WHAT IF HE'S BI OR GAY. APPARENTLY HE CAN'T MAKE A LIVING AS A PHOTOGRAPHER ANY LONGER SO HE'S PUTTING DANNIELYNN TO WORK. DOES UNCLE HOWIE GET A PERCENTAGE? HMMM?

Larry Birkhead [on his daughter]

I think about life in a different way. I had kidney stones and was in the hospital for a week in July. I was freaking out thinking, If something happens to me, Dannielynn is by herself. I'm all this little one has left.
