Parents angry over 'Sister Wives' cameras in school
It seems controversy -- and, of course, reality TV cameras -- follows the members of the "Sister Wives" family wherever they go. Over the last year and a half, Kody Brown, his brides and their 17 kids have faced legal battles, angry neighbors and even bullying, but the latest hubbub is a new one for the Browns.
According to TMZ, a production crew for the TLC show tagged along with the family as they attended Sheila Tarr Elementary School's Valentine's Ball last week, and the parents of some of the other children in attendance weren't happy about it. And a compromise that would blur out non-Brown family faces in the crowd and keep location information hush-hush didn't exactly calm their concerns.
"The district heard the concerns of the parents involved and considered them when developing (the) compromise," a Clark County School District rep told TMZ.
But given the fact that this was hardly the first camera crew to make its way into area schools in recent months, the district powers-that-be felt refusing the "Sister Wives" cameras wasn't an option.
"In the past few months, we've had the 'Ellen' show, ABC News, Oxygen Network and countless local broadcasts filmed at our schools," the rep explained. "TLC and the Brown family deserved the same."
What you think? Did the Brown family deserve the right to bring reality TV cameras and crew to the school, or did the other families have a right to a reality-TV-free environment? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
