Doesn’t that sound adorable? (I’m vomiting in my mouth a little). Have you heard about the “Poway Playboy Daddy, who threw a “Playboy” themed party for his18 year-old daughter? According to several sources, there were 200 kids, and a large portion of them came dressed in “Playboy Bunny” attire. (see pictures on Instagram).
I just have to ask: Who in the hell has a Playboy themed party for an 18 year-old unless they’re some type of pervert? I’ll go one step further – what type of parent let’s their daughter attend a party where she has to show up in a little teeny bunny outfit? What parent possibly thinks this is okay? Sometimes I forget that we are living in a “Kim Kardashian world”. Translation – body image, big boobs, round tushies and selfies are the name of the game. Why wouldn’t a teenager want to attend a party flaunting her sassy self and then posting it all over social media?
So here’s where the party gets especially egregious. The dad was serving minors alcohol. If you don’t believe me, you can see the beer cans in their yard (again, those smart teens posted pictures all over the web). I hope you’ve read enough of my articles to know that by smart, I mean entitled, dumb, and arrogant. Not only does this dad have young girls running around his house with their cleavage hanging out, he’s mixing and serving the kids alcoholic drinks. I’m shocked that any parent would put a kids’ life in danger like this. I honestly cannot wrap my brain around serving alcohol to minors. Our daughter just started high school and if I’ve heard this once, I’ve heard it a thousand times – “Randi, you know that you have to lock up the liquor cabinet once your kids start high school. You will find yourself doing things like marking the bottles, and you won’t be surprised when the lines moves. No matter how well you think you know the kids, or how good they are, they will drink your liquor”. I get it kids make bad choices. But a 48 year-old father has to know better, right?
I love it when parents argue that they prefer if their kid drinks at home where they can contain and monitor it. But we aren’t talking about a sip of wine or a taste of beer. That’s amateur hour compared to hosting a “teen rager”, serving kids, and then letting them get in their car and drive home. Did this dad have any understanding at all, of how detrimental and serious the consequences are of trying to be the “cool parent”?
The “mom” was the former PTA president as well as participating on a MADD committee – and here’s her tweet to her daughter, “Happiest Birthday to the baddest b**** in town. Now don’t get arrested. Love you madly. #liontamer.” Are you freaking kidding me? Is this nut job re -living her high school years? Her horribly entitled daughter, Liv then tweeted out, “Huge thanks to everyone who was able to be a part of last night! I hope you all had a damn good time and that you’re all okay and safe.” And this is after her father was brought in and faces 6 months in jail. Nice empathy for her dad? This family is one hot mess, and a very sad representation of our society. And who came up with the 6 months? I don’t think 6 years is enough. Any parent that serves alcohol to a minor should pay big. They should put a scarlet letter S in his yard for STUPID. They should tattoo the letter S to his forehead so he can look in the mirror, everyday, and remember the night he almost killed 200 innocent kids whose lives were in his hands. Playboy Daddy, did I mention he’s an attorney? If someone can come up with a way to dole out common sense, please tell me. We have really hit rock bottom when this becomes the norm.
