As Mardi Gras World Turns

Gold diggers have a long history of coming between fathers and sons. But messing with Carnival magic is taking things a step too far! Blaine Kern Studios, the superkrewe go-to float factory, has apparently been torn asunder by the 34-year-old fourth wife of the company's namesake magnate. Barry Kern, son of Blaine and his onetime go-ahead successor atop Mardi Gras Mountain, filed a lawsuit yesterday trying to wrest control of the company from his father. The lawsuit accuses Holly Brown of riding the 83-year-old elder Kern's doubloons to a decadent lifestyle that resulted in a pile of debt the size of an Endymion float. It seems that after all these years, Blaine Kern remains susceptible to the sweet siren song of, "Throw me something, Mister!"

hello, im just saying that

im just saying that it's a pretty big deal to call someone a gold digger. I met her when I was 6 years old, when she owned my dancing school. I had severe family problems and she has taken me under her wing as I have gotten older. From making sure that I was able to dance for free and buying my senior ring when I couldn't afford one. if it wasn't for Holly Brown Kern I wouldn't be the person I am if it wasn't for her. She is my main support group and I am eternally grateful for everything that she has done for me and it breaks my heart to hear these malicious insinuations.
