Spawn of Celebrities: Their Story (an anonymous guest post)

Recently our Lost friend (that's me!) wrote a post about a local figure.  In order to avoid getting the author and myself in trouble, the name of this figure will be kept quiet, so it doesn't seem like we're outing him.  I am the daughter of said figure.  I have been for all of my life, and for these years I have had to deal with my father's money, business ordeals, and making of local news.  This is the first time that he has gone national, so now life is getting even MORE fun.

My father has been recently described as quite a few negative things.  I believe my fellow family members are quite offended by this.  I say believe because I am quite separated from my family.  So separated that I found out about my brothers wedding date from a facebook post, received a request for an address to send an invite to this wedding via mass facebook message to about 40 people, and missed my brother's luncheon about an hour and a half ago because my family forgot to tell me about it until about 30 minutes before.  Yes, this is my family.  

My father is included in this distance.  In fact, he is probably one of the reasons for it.  My parents divorced when I was the young age of 2.  I lived with my mom.  I have no memory of living with my dad.  Because of his business, I would be lucky to see him a few times a month when growing up.  He knew little about me.  For example, when I was a little girl, I wanted a pony.  For my 8th birthday, he gave me a cow.  Close, but not QUITE what I was hoping for.  

I find it humorous that people are always trying to make it sound like I am my father.  My father does something, so I also did it.  People don't realize that my father's pay goes into HIS checking account, not mine (but if someone knows how to make it go into mine.. I wouldn't complain!).  Therefore, every time my father makes the news, I get attention.  And blamed.  Which makes no sense, because often I don't agree with what my father did, said, or whatever pissed people off about him.  Not that anyone would believe me if I told them because, since I came from his sperm, I'm AUTOMATICALLY a magic clone of him.  



So here's the deal.  I don't know about the background of these rumors of my father.  I hadn't heard about any of this until you did, on the news.  Actually, you may have heard it before me because I avoid news with my dad's name in it. Please remember, the children of any person in the public is a victim.  Don't blame them.  I should really create a 'Kids of Rich Dudes Anonymous' group... we could call it KORDA - sounds pretty bad ass doesn't it?  

I don't know about my dad as a business man, or even a general person.  I know about him as a father.  I wish I could tell you more, but that would REALLY get me (and our Lost friend) in trouble.  It's sorta humorous, mostly just bad.  I may see him if I end up going to my brother's wedding reception (which I was graciously invited to) this evening.  His fiancee is kinda a bitch, IMHO, so who knows!  Either way, when I look my dad in the eye, I'll be thinking of the news about him, but won't mention it.  That would get me in trouble too.  At least one good thing has come from this. I've begun an anonymous memoir about my life as his daughter.  I have found my muse (aka ranting) and am one step closer to getting published.

Having a famous last name is tough, and I applaud Miss X (hehe) for asking to use my blog as a place to vent.  As, you know, I like pot-stirring, and if the producers of VH1 are reading this, we may have a "Millionaire's Kids" show in the works.  If so, Miss X, if you need an agent... call me!

Do you think children of famous figures get a bad rap like above, or do most fall into the "like father, like son" category (like Nicole Richie)?  Sound off below, and remember, you can comment anonymously...

Piecing together what I recently read on Twitter, I was looking forward to Miss X's guest post. Not being the son/daughter of a notable person, I have no idea what it's like so it's interesting to read this sort of insight. I have to imagine it's easier to get that memoir published, though.
Miss X, good luck to you, it sounds like you have more than just a Dad problem but a whole damn family problem.

Bozo said...

No idea myself on how things sort out for kids of famous people - but if this is the way it works... how unfair! And soooo very ridiculous! I'm sorry you are blamed for things just be association.

It was a very interesting post to read though - and if you do end up going to that brother's wedding... hope you have an ok time at least!

My family is pretty effed up, but we aren't famous.

Wishing you well, Miss X.

Crack You Whip said...

I didn't come from a famous family, just a really messed up one. I would love to write a book about them, but would have to sit and worry about them suing me, oh, but if I could...

Good luck Miss X!

Heh, if the misadventures really are that crazy, it'll make for one spectacular book.

Lady Estrogen said...

Yes, book, for sure :)

My interest is tweaked, yo.

yep one day your book will be awesome...

I think I am who I am not because of my family, but in spite of my family. This may hold true for children of well-known people, too. At any rate, any spawn of Tom Cruise will be messed up no matter what.

Random Girl said...

It's guilt by association, like you must be in on it or part of it, or at the very least supportive of it since he is your family and all. I don't buy into it. I know everyone's family is eff'd up, most us just get to deal with it outside of the spotlight and free of massive public speculation about the goings-on. Good luck to you Miss X! Glad you found an outlet and your own voice, and you picked the perfect place to let it all out!

I can't imagine what that must be like, but very cool post! :)
