Is Raising Your Rich Kid in the Limelight Like Kim Kardashian and David Hasselhoff the Right Choice?

Being born into showbiz royalty doesn't automatically mean you're going to fall into a lifestyle of drugs, debauchery and excessive spending. Or does it?

Being born into showbiz royalty doesn't automatically mean you're going to fall into a lifestyle of drugs, debauchery and excessive spending. Or does it?

Although the pampered lifestyle of Kim Kardashian West has its merits as well as its bad parts, as she announces her happy news she is finally expecting baby number 2, is it right to expose your child to too much too soon?

I caught up with David Hasselhoff's daughter Taylor-Ann to shed some light.

'North West will be fine,' she says. 'I was 3-years-old on stage with my dad and I came out really well! Obviously it's for the kids to decide when they're older what they want to do.

'It's hard to live in the shadow of dad, but this is my journey. He advised me to stay true to myself.'

Meanwhile Magic Johnson's son EJ thinks it's a no-no.

'When she gets older she'll need a little more privacy. You really need to have a choice. I think kids that are forced into it are the ones that end up wiling out and going crazy, and going into rehab by the time they're 18.'

Budding singer Taylor-Ann is hoping to show just how independent she is as she joins super-slimmed down EJ in the new season of E!s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills on June 4 at 9pm.

And will The Hoff make an appearance? She says: 'He's a big part of my life so we'll see!'

It's good to see other young talent giving themselves a push - and it looks like there really is life after a boyband - take note Zayn Malik! I'm excited to see Cairo of boyband Encore has launched his own short film 'Read Between the Lies,' and it's already creating buzz as a candidate for BAFTA's rising stars.

Every mum deserves a night off - and I caught up with hostess with the mostess Emma Willis over a cointreau fizz at the glamour awards. 'It's date night for me and Matt. Woop!' Goldie Hawn gushed about being a Glam-ma too, and Sophie Ellis Bextor who is expecting number 4 had reassuring words for Kim K on baby number two and said: 'I just go with the flow.'

Just for kids - what's hot this June.

So we're finally having a heatwave are we? * foldsumbrellaaway *

I'm really looking forward to kicking back - at Big Fish Little Fish family raves for people with kids aged 0-8 years. They're having a big end of season Camp Bestival theme party on June 14th from 2 until 4.30pm at The Paperworks, 48 Newington Causeway SE1, with loads of arts and crafts, as well as DJs spinning toe-tapping tunes!

It will be a fab warm up for a real treat for the family - Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park from June 18-June 28, which has added a bunch of new acts. It'll include interactive reading with Peppa Pig and George - wow, that's going to go down well with a certain three year old in my house. And don't get me started on the Frozen sing-along as well as Scooby-Doo, Daffy Duck and the latest youTubers. Boom!

Also the Drake day at the Wireless weekend is now sold out, so check out the Wireless 10 show on June 28th with mini versions of the headliners.Tyler, aged 6, poses as Drake, Jasmine, aged 5, poses as Rita Ora, and Thyra, aged 9, as Nicki Minaj. The gang will blow out birthday candles and throw some 'pap-worthy' poses their larger look-a-likes would be proud of. And don't get me started on their jelly and ice-cream rider! Well jel!

But if you fancy chilling in, and keeping your kids visually stimulated indoors - check out on Netflix Dragons: Race to the Edge on June 26th. A good idea to keep kids entertained is to make puppets in the run up, don't be afraid to get messy in the name of creativity!
