Sunderland "reality" show was preplanned before Abby's misadventure:
Adventures in Sunderland (Reality TV Show) Distribution Rights: Magnetic Entertainment Exec Producer: Magnetic Entertainment
"A family oriented Adventure show, based on the Sunderland Family of Thousand Oaks, CA. We follow the family in their day-to-day lives as shipbuilder Laurence Sunderland and mother/teacher Marianne try to balance work and family."
"Magnetic Entertainment" is the sponsor of the ill-fated voyage. (pdf list of sponsors)
"We did it for a show."
Balloon Boy, balloon Boy, Where’s my fifteen seconds of fame. Damn trash!!!
So much for this not being a publicity stunt...
Maybe the Sunderlands can team up with the family who claimed their young sun was in the runaway balloon over Colorado.
Maybe it REALLY was? Maybe we were set up and they never intended for her to complete the voyage? Maybe it ended the way they planned?
Makes World Cup soccer sound exciting by comparison.
Oh I have no doubt she was trying to make it....but this wasnt simply a girl looking to make her own mark in the world...it’s a whole family seeking fame and fortune...I guess they thought it was worth the *cough* “risk”
There is low class and then there is no class. What a bunch of free loaders.
Thanks for the thread..first time I heard of it. I’m not surprised though!
Article regarding brother Zac from last July..
“I don’t know if he’s set to be on the Wheaties box yet,” his mother, Marianne Sunderland, said Friday in acknowledging that the family has an agent looking to sign her son to commercials and endorsements.”
Yeah, but if she had discovered a new continent we'd all be singing a different tune.
We now return you to the regular diet of inspiration; Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, etc.
“Yeah, but if she had discovered a new continent we’d all be singing a different tune.”
And if we’d known this this morning many of us wouldnt have had to suffer thorugh this other thread...
Abby IS a litmus test....for suckers...
To the epic fail of many...
And I'm tired of hearing our teenagers put down because they aren't out there doing something 'life threatening'...good grief.
lol...that “litmus test” threadmeister should probably be pinged.
