Rather that crying for the well being whales perhaps Hayden needs to spend more time with her parents. They may need her more than the whales do.

Hayden will be out flashing the chipped ham to anyone with a camera. Trouble w/ the parents is always the catalyst. I would lay money that a sex tape surfaces with the next 18 months.

Don't any of you people have anything better to do than sit in judgement over this family and their problems? Leave the judging to me and get on with your pathetic lives. Believe me, you'll be having to explain why you've totally ruined your lives to me sooner than you think. Oh, and I've stopped flashing people's lives before their eyes as they die- it's extremely depressing to me and I don't need to be seeing that with everything I'm dealing with up here. Peace out! J.C. in da hizouse!!!!!!

I guess she and her family dont have their stuff together after all. She may want to think about that next tie she wants to comment on how screwed up young h wood is. she also may want to hold back her comments on how screwed up lindsy lohan and her family is cause her apparently is not much better. not so perfect after all.

Do these people forget that they have family members in the public eye who will be negatively affected by their ignorant actions? Gawd...more rich, spoiled, cluless"adults" acting like dough-heads!
