Camera Clutching Children Chasing Celebrities


FBLA’s Mayrav Saar chronicles the dark world of Hollywood paparazzi, or rather the underage version in the NY Times. Something tells us that this was cleaned up for the Hannah Montana crowd. What else can explain this circumlocution:

Kim Kardashian, a mischievous confidant of Ms. Hilton

That’s one way to put it.

Austin Visschedyk, who was one half of Pintsize Paparazzi, has a mom who must have been in Dina Lohan’s Mommy and Me group:

“I’m very supportive of it.” She added: “He’s a real bright kid. He’s careful. He can get just as injured in sports at school.”

That’s not what she told the LA Times, back in June. Austin has his own website, as he’s an artist, as opposed to his friend Blaine Hewison. Hewison’s dad drives the kid around in his Porsche.

The boys are represented by aptly-named Jeffery Wank and World of Wonder is working on a reality show. Blaine’s photo of Britney flipping off the world was a highlight of their recent Just Britney show.

With any luck, in a couple of years, both boys can start dating their celebrity quarry, and then, make best selling sex tapes–but artistic ones.
